I had a good but long drive to southwest Kansas – eleven hours of driving. That’s 22 hours round trip. At the hotel I stayed at in a town called Hesston, the young lady at the check in desk had been trying to go to a Culinary Art School in Houston but had to drop out because of costs and expenses, and I shared with her that there was one in Omaha and found the website and gave it to her – she was so grateful and excited to check it out since Omaha is only six hours from Hesston.
On Wednesday I preached and ministered at this small rural church. There were seven people there, but I preached like there was 700. They have been going through a difficult time and their pastor just recently resigned and decided to start another local church. This town of 1500 already has 17 churches. I wish we could all just get along. Someone had stolen some of the churches decorations that were in a storage unit, so I gave them a check to replace those items. I felt like lots of bad stuff was happening and so I was looking for ways to bless and encourage.
