This is the first time I've ventured further East than Colorado, and it's true there's a lot of empty land after you leave Colorado coming this direction, but at least it's not desert!
First stop was near Springfield Missouri to visit new friends of ours who are homestead-ing and planting a church.
We had a wonderful time
seeing their new place, getting to view the Ozark countryside, and spending a rich time of fellowship with other like-minded believers!
One thing we really noticed is that things grow well out here...
...which includes bugs:
Zachary loves the "lush and green", and all the children had the time of their lives with friends, baby goats, grasshoppers, frogs, crickets, chicks, and kittens.
The Mountain Church is a family integrated church thriving in Colorado, and now quickly flourishing in Missouri. There are about about nine families already but as you can see, it appears to be a larger number due to the quantity of children!
It was a sight to behold watching the children of nine families fill a gymnasium! It was busy there!!
My children had a ball:-)
Before we left Missouri we drove through some Amish neighborhoods and really enjoyed seeing a glimpse into the their way of life.
Make sure you check Emma's blog in a few days to see what she posts about this - it really interested her so she's doing a little research to find out more about these interesting people.
We made it to Kentucky two days ago - another 1400 miles from our stay in Mo.
AJ has work here, and the rest of us are are attempting to navigate the city and find what's of significance to see (besides the Kentucky Derby and baseball). We're trying to do a little Internet research, but if you know of something amazing near Louisville drop me a line!
I'm off to play with the kiddos; enjoy YOUR day!
