    Covid 19 testing

    July 13 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 75 °F

    On June 22 we had lunch with Keith and Debbie Wilkerson in Longview,Texas.

    Then...

    On July 4 Keith had fever and flu-like symptoms. Only lasted a few days.

    And....

    On July 10 Keith was confirmed positive for COVID-19

    So....

    Today (taking all precautions) we went thru a free drive-thru testing location in Gibson City at the general hospital with Ellen, Luke and family. It was a simple 5 second swap up each nostril. Painless.

    Now Glenn says “now we NOSE what we did on David’s 9th birthday!”

    4 hours later we all received the Good news that we were all NEGATIVE. Thankful.

    Still praying for all those with COVID-19.

    Day of Garage Sale

    July 11 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 82 °F

    Yesterday was a day of swimming and today we did some major garage saling.

    I held Annie for 2 hours as she slept. I fell asleep too.

    Lucy joined us in the RV for the afternoon. After a movie in the basement, Lucy stayed overnight. Emily stayed overnight last night and we played sequence.

    During the afternoon, it stormed and lightening. And even in the evening, as laying in bed, the wind was pretty strong. The RV was rockin and rollin. Like being on a roller coast ride.

    Emily and David arrive for the day

    July 9 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 88 °F

    We’ve had a full week here at Kamp Komfort. We’ve done several zoom calls. And we’ve had to sit in the car at the church’s parking lot to use their WiFi.

    We’ve made several runs to the local Walmart store to get food.

    Today we bought a small Bluetooth wireless speaker for the RV - for Glenn’s birthday.

    Yesterday, Glenn and I went walking down the country road. Several days ago, the Boerckels had us over for breakfast.

    Visit with Bernice snd John

    July 5 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 86 °F

    We stop by to see John and Bernice in Peoria. They live right overlooking the Illinois River. Beautiful house, wonderful conversation.

    We met them on the NCL Spirit back in March. They were on the same 6th deck with us and they would attend the church service we held each Sunday and then in the middle of the week, they would come when things got challenging with the Covid-19 situation. Bernice shared often during the service.

    They were also on our flight back to Miami on March 22, taking up the roll just behind us.

    It was good to reconnect and learn new stuff from them. They are familiar with RGBI, Wycliffe Bible Translators and others. We talked about Glenn growing up on the mission field in Mexico.

    We had a lovely chat and they showed us their historic home snd gave us a little history lesson of its occupants.

    Wildwood Church

    I was up by 4:30 this morning. The internet is very slow here at Kamp Komfort.

    We drove up to East Moline to attend worship service at Wildwood - nearly a 2 hour drive. This church has been supporting us for at least 15 years!

    More photos to come.

    We had Mexicali’s lunch at los agaves.
