Passing through Your Neighborhood?

Traveling BillboardBonnie and I may have just passed through or near your neighborhood. Wednesday, September 17, we traveled from western Pennsylvania south past Pittsburgh and took a right turn at Washington, Pennsylvania. Turning westward from I-79 onto I-70, we paused in the Wheeling, West Virginia area for lunch and to spend a couple of hours with brother Emanuel and sister Judy Daugherty. Continuing westward into Ohio along I-70, Bonnie and I turned south once more onto I-77. Several miles south of the Ohio River (the third time today that we crossed it) in West Virginia, eventually we turned onto two-lane roads through the countryside to the meetinghouse of the Sandyville Church of Christ. That evening, I acquainted the congregation with our 2014 Guyana mission trip with a PowerPoint presentation, and I apprised the brethren of our soon departure for nine weeks to four Asian countries.

Once more overnight, Bonnie and I were the guests of brother John and sister Sue Balis; he serves as one of two elders. They are great encouragers of our efforts on behalf of the cause of Christ. The following morning, sister Sue cooked up bacon, eggs and toast prior to the resumption of our journey and our return to Winona, Mississippi.

Throughout the day, we traveled through West Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee until we arrived at our daughter Rebecca’s home in Collierville, Tennessee. A week and a half earlier, we traveled from Mississippi through the same states, though by different routes. We made a big, big circle, passing through countless neighborhoods. Drop me an email or give me a call, and Bonnie and I will make your congregation a destination – instead of merely passing through or near to your neighborhood. Have Gospel, will travel! Email: rushmore@gospelgazette.com Finally, Friday around noon, we arrived back at our Winona home.
