Western Wear

We recently returned from a mission trip to Wyoming. The average high was in the mid-80's with 20% humidity. Back in Springfield, they were sweltering with temperatures in the upper 90's and humidity in the 85-90% range. Quite a difference. Wyoming is a place of great contrasts; the mountains right up against desert lands, the crystal blue sky meeting the brown sagebrush; antelopes grazing in fields of dirt and rock. We had a great time serving alongside North American Mission Board missionaries Drew and Pam Crabtree. Their love for the Lord contrasted with the harsh region. They travel hundreds of miles each week to take the love of Christ to workers on the oil fields, sharing God's love in beautiful ways. Pray for them as they continue this marvelous work.
