In this post you can take a look at my recent progress on the Google Map and SPOT tracking beacon link and some Bible verses to reflect on down towards the bottom (of this post). Also, I have a couple new videos and a little write-up that I wrote several days ago when I was in Wyoming still. Here it is:
As I neared the town of Lusk, WY (near Wyoming/Nebraska border), I had been in contact with a woman by the name of Pat from a parish that I planned to visit. Nearing mile 31 for the day I came up over a hill before entering the town. I had recently been praying for the blessing of more joy. As I hit the crest of the hill a thunderstorm moved in soaked everything. I could do nothing but smile. I was literally filled with joy for the last 2 miles of the stretch. I had multiple ride offers during this storm but had to refuse so to enjoy the moment. The storm was invigorating.
I was blessed with a meal from Pat, John, and Barb. They also offered a bed to sleep on and a shower. The shower was incredible as it had been hot recently and was 90 degrees that day.
The following afternoon during my rest day I was able to join Fr. Andrew, Bruce, and Pat to the Wyoming Department of Corrections-Women's Center to celebrate Mass. I have never experienced anything like this before. As I walked in I was a little nervous. Fr. Andrew asked me to share my testimony with the women. When starting this trip I had no idea what God had planned for me, but as I spoke I thought to myself how I'd rather be hearing their testimonies and life-stories. After speaking with a few of them, and one woman in particular, I was so inspired! Some of these women had a better grasp of my faith that I do. I left feeling inspired to "up my game". I just wanna thank all who were involved, and the women at the facility, for letting me join them that day.
Here are a couple new videos:
And the latest SPOT tracking beacon location and Google Earth map:
I will leave you with some good verses to reflect on:
John 6:53-58, 66-67
