Arizona Day 1

Well, we’re off!! We left Weimar Academy at 2:35 ish. It was a little later than usual and that has been the trend of the trip so far. The bus went on ahead while the Suburban and trailer had to stay back for a little bit to pack up a few more things. It was a bit rainy as we left, but God gave us a beautiful full rainbow which reminded us of His promises. About half way through the drive, we stopped at a rest stop and met the Neri Family who was also on their way and happened to be stoping at the same time.  Then we were on our way again. We drove for about three more hours and finally made it to the Hillcrest Seventh Day Adventist church. It was about 7:30pm at this time. When we walk into the dinning hall, the Leal family had supper all ready for us. It was soup, sandwiches, salad, and fruit. We were famished!! They were so generous. After we ate, a few of us helped clean up while the rest of us went to go unpack the bus. We then separated into the rooms of where we were going to sleep. One problem was that the Suburban hadn’t arrived at the church yet. They were about an hour and a half out still. After waiting a very long time for them to arrive, they finally came, at 9:30pm. We got the things out of the trailer and we needed to get, and then we got into our sleeping bags and went to bed. It was a long day of driving, but tomorrow will even be longer yet!! God kept us safe and sound. More adventures are still to come.
