Cherokee, North Carolina

Welcome to North Carolina!

Beautiful tree covered mountains, winding highways and roads, popping ears… we were in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina!  As we traveled up and down through the mountains, we were very thankful for the brake job that Uncle Joe, Dad, and Grandpa took care of while we were in Maryland.

We pulled in late Tuesday night to a Christian camp that graciously allowed us to stay there.  We had been invited by Tammy Jackson to sing at Acquoni Baptist church in Cherokee, and she had also lined up several Native American believers to record their testimonies for the Storyteller.

Over the weekend, a church group came in from Tennessee to close up the camp and so we were able to help with cleaning, sweeping, raking, and such.

We had quite a bit of down time on this part the trip and so we visited the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  We did some driving and hiking, soaking in the beauty of God’s creation.

Half of us in NC, half of us in TN!

Wherever we go in ministry, the Lord brings other brothers and sisters in Christ into our path that are a blessing and encouragement to us.  It’s also exciting to see how He provides for us – from where we stay to what we eat.  We’re greatly blessed!

Breathtaking beauty
