In our most recent e-update–and here on my blog–we stated that we were short of our budget for the month. This last week, the full amount–to the exact dollar–came in slowly but surely. At 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, we met our budget! To all of our supporters, thank you! As we prepared to leave on our month-long road trip, this came as a great relief.

Our drive out to Phoenix was timely and uneventful. The scenery was amazing. The kids have never seen desert like that before. We pulled into Phoenix and drove into downtown for the public market to find local ingredients, which we did! We only needed a few things from Sprouts (like Whole Foods). The group was really friendly that night and loved the class! Brooke did such a great job. The church that hosted us has a guest house across the street which we stayed at. It was comfortable and we all slept well. I spoke at the same church the following morning. Again, things went well. My sermon seemed well received. We met some wonderful people that I'm sure will darken our door sooner than later. We left after lunch with some church members and headed up through Sedona. WOW! So, beautiful! It was amazing. We stopped to look walk and take some pictures. And then into Flagstaff. Again, beautiful but in different ways. It was a truly breath-taking drive the whole way. Our God is truly an amazing artist. We pulled into the hotel last night, shared some pizza and hit the pool. The kids were so anxious to swim! We played and splashed until we were exhausted and came back to our room to fall asleep shortly after. Today we take a short drive to Grand Canyon and this evening we leave for Albuquerque.

We'll be updating the EcclesiaCollective.org blog from here on out. So, you'll want to be checking that out!
