On Our Way

20161115_114835

After a year of preparation, we packed our van and trailer yesterday for the long journey.  Loaded with camping equipment and 58 backpacks and bags for the homeless we were unable to bring our bikes.  Small sacrifice  for a good cause.

This morning we left at 7:20am.  Today was all about the boarder.  A few months ago we contacted the boarder to find out what they required from us.  They were very specific:  every bag for the homeless required a packing list and we needed letters from Tat’s employer and character references to support what we were doing. We had it all.

We reached the Bridgewater, Maine boarder at 10:30am and left there at 11:05am.  Within a minute of reaching the booth, the guard said “you must be the backpack people”.  We were ready for them and they were ready for us.  The guard asked to see the backpacks.  Tat opened the door to the jam packed van and immediately the guard told us to go inside and answer more questions and sign some papers.  God went ahead of us and prepared the boarder.  They checked all of our paper work and made sure our story checked out.  They never opened one backpack or looked inside the trailer.  PRAISE GOD

We have travellled 536kms today, bought a phone and groceries.  We have stopped for the night as it is already dark and neither of us can drive in the dark.

If you are wondering about the chedACorn…we stopped for gas in the morning and I saw it.  I haven’t seen chedACorn for at least 20 years.  I knew it was going to be a good day.

Today’s scripture comes from a coin I found yesterday when we were packing.
