2018 Eastern Road Trip...post 4
Fritz, Anna, and I played earlier and Fritz won on the last spin.
Today we've enjoyed a late breakfast, a short visit to the local Cheese museum, followed by a longer treasure hunt at the antique store.
A late lunch with left-overs from yesterday's pot-luck supper and rest time, we completed the movie started this morning and then the game of Life continued.
Let's back up a bit....Friday we packed up and went to the final service of Refresh. After the service was the bottle rocket launch. Fritz was given a rocket to launch by a leader who had made one.
On the way to Big Tree Wesleyan near Buffalo, we stopped at a park with a playground that Fritz enjoyed playing on.
There were trails and a river that was used long ago for lumber transport and powering a sawmill.
We enjoyed pot-luck supper at Big Tree and then shared about the work in Haiti before returning to the Cuba mission house.
Saturday we rested, did a bit of food shopping and when to the Cuba cheese store: puzzle, reading, park....
Sunday, yesterday, we drove back to Houghton, sharing a few minutes in the morning service as well as in the back by our display table.
Lunch consisted of yummy breakfast foods like blueberry pancakes and omelets shared with eight folks from Houghton. Always nice to connect with folks invested in one's family, Haiti, and ministry.
Back to Cuba to share with the folks at North Park. After a technical delay we shared our pictures and stories about the Lord's faithfulness before enjoying a pot-luck supper.
Chatting, then reading while the kids watched a movie before bed rounded out our day.
Fritzlin had us laughing today when he was trying to make us remember the weekend in WI at a Jack Links store display...'Why do they call him 'big-leg man'? He was thinking about Big Foot! ha..
Tomorrow we will head further East-looking forward to spending some time with Mme. Felician's [our dear friend and cook from LaGonave] daughter's family and then share on Wed. night at Wells Wesleyan before we start the travel back West.
Back in Michigan Eli visited the eye doctor and had a good check-up. He's resting up from his busy summer at camp and preparing for family time!
We continue to pray for so many friends and situations. We are continuing to pray to hear about Fritz's citizen paperwork and wonder when we will be able to return to Haiti.
