Grand Rapids, MI

This is Dave and Matt.  If you have been following our journies you met Matt on Day 2.  You may wonder how he made it all the way from Punxsutawney, PA to GR, MI.  Well he goes to seminary there so he had to leave his girlfriend back in PA.  We have had the priviledge of seeing his girlfriend, Jolene, 4 times in the past 4 months and we think that she is perfect for him.  In fact, when he left for seminary he gave her a Mag Lite and she loved it.  Matt, you are going to be hard pressed to find anyone better suited for you.

If you read the Colorado or Adventure pages you have already met Dan as well.  Dan and I were each other's best men in our weddings and Suz was a great friend in college as well so we were very excited to see them.  They both have to work for a living so we only got to see them for a few hours but it was very enjoyable.  The second picture is Dan hanging from the carpeted ceiling.  Luckily he wasn't hurt in his fall.

This is Craig and Kathy Perry.  Susanna and Kathy were roommates in college and great friends so they are quite pleased to now be neighbors.  Craig is going to seminary and Kathy is supporting him by working as a nurse.  Craig actually works as a painter so if you need some painting done in the Grand Rapids area give him a call.  When not painting Craig often hams it up by pretending to be a dog.  Here you can see Kathy walking him.

Two group shots from our time with Dan & Suz, Craig & Kathy, and Matt.  We had a cookout and then shared a little bit about our ministry around the dinner table.  We have been having a lot of big meals and dessert on this trip.  I think I like visiting people.  I could get used to this.  Maybe we should just live in the bus forever.  Just Kidding.  Though our time in GR was short we had a blast.
