We were a day late. Immanuel Lutheran Church has a permanent welcome to all bikers on their outside sign. It is located on a lightly traveled rural road in the middle of no where. Every Thursday they feed lunch to all comers including bikers. Our fellow travelers Rusty and Ray got in on it. (see www.rustymccain.com). We were a day late. In the book What's So Amazing About Grace Yancy talks about churches which exhibit grace beyond maintaining their our congregation. Immanuel's sign said in effect the door to the fellowship hall is open. Help yourself. Use it to sleep in if you need to. We checked, and sure enough the place was wide open. That was a "dripping of Grace" for us today
Dave was on a mission today. He wanted to, and did, drive to Joplin to make contact with relief agencies with whom the Christian Reformed World Relief Committee might be partners. He agreed to write a blog and post pictures soon about his visit there. Pete went with him.

This is our last night in KS. We really enjoyed the camping experiences in the city parks with pools. We now will see what MO brings.
