Taking advantage of Covid-19, we purchased a used RV, named Magnolia. This was our home. We watched God show up with divine appointments along the 7,873 miles in 111 days. To God be the Glory!

    24 hours with Lucy and Libby

    July 3, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 86 °F

    After a quick Walmart stop, we stopped at Ellen’s house to pick up Libby and Lucy for them to stay in the RV with us.

    We had a quick dinner stop at Scott and Carol’s - picnic dinner in the back yard.

    Just 15 minutes longer, we set up camp at Kamp Komfort. Nice mom and pops place. The girls were super excited however super tired. They had been in the pool all day.

    Glenn made French toast out on the grill for breakfast.

    July 4 with the Scott and Carol

    July 4, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 81 °F

    Scott and Carol joined us all day at our RV (still needs to be named).

    Glenn cooked hotdogs on the grill (borrowed from Ellen). Pork and beans, watermelon. Pretty good.

    While Joel FaceTimed with Scott and Carol, I took a 2 hour nap. Everyone else sat in the RV and talked and played a new game they gave to us Pun-believeable.

    We also played Zilch and LCR. Lots of laughs!

    We threw steaks out on the grill. Fresh corn, tossed salad and humus. Had some great conversations, then we walked to the other side of the camp and watched the sunset, followed by sparklers.

    Happy 4th of July!

    Wildwood Church

    July 5, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 82 °F

    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.

    Visit with Bernice snd John

    July 5, 2020 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.

    Emily and David arrive for the day

    July 9, 2020 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.
