Saturday in Nebraska

Saturday morning we took time to explore and sight see around the area a bit. We first went to Fort Cody right near our hotel. Isaac especially loved the “Buffalo Bill Wild West Show in Miniature” . Then we went to the Nebraskaland Days ethnic festival, which was lots of historical things from Nebraska’s past. Later that evening we had a picnic with the church members, which was a wonderful time of fellowship. The people here have a very wonderful spirit, and true desire to learn and grow. We have found some issues that we differ on, and have had quite a lot of discussion concerning these things. We are leaving it in God’s hands, and leaving it to Him to work in their hearts concerning these matters if He wants us here. They have expressed how very much they love Adam and know that he would be a great man to lead them. We truly feel a connection with these people, and are refreshed at so many with sincere desires to grow. It certainly would be a ministry of teaching and training. Please continue your prayers for us!

We had a long, but fun day. Hudson has been an angel, the church people have even asked if he ever cries because he has been so sweet and happy. Isaac has been having the time of his life with all the new fun things, new toys every place we go, and of course lots of people to dote on him! 🙂

Here are some pictures from our day.

Isaac enjoying the miniature Wild West Show.

The railroad is very big around here. Many of the church members work on, or have retired from the railroad. Here is Isaac exploring a train car at the ethnic festival.

Isaac made fast friends with this little girl his age and had a blast driving around in this four wheeler while visiting at their home.

This is the parsonage. It is beautiful inside, and even has a room for scrap booking! 🙂

This is a church members home where we had the church picnic. The country out here is very beautiful. You can see forever it seems.

Ready for a good nights sleep after a long day!

    “You can see forever, it seems” — that statement sums up what I really do miss about “home” in the midwest (South Dakota, specifically). I’ve been eagerly reading and waiting to read about how you liked Nebraska. You’re “spot on” about the people, too — just as good and generous as they come. I’m glad you were welcomed so warmly. You’ve been in our prayers, and will continue to be regarding your upcoming decisions and God’s leading. Have a safe trip home.

    So glad you have had a good time. I’m sure Isaac would love to be a cowboy out west! Isn’t the sky huge?! Praying that you and the church will know if you all are the right “fit.”
