Embarking on the Midwest

It has been about a month since posting my last blog. During this time I have been busy in a hodge podge of preaching in Northern California. I also spent time orchestrating things for my current trip to the Midwest. For example; a simple thing like renewing a driver’s license can turn into a significant hurdle to my travels. Timing is everything. This also pertains to doctor’s appointments, maintenance on the van, and other chores which require careful planning and favor from God. I did get my license in the mail a few days before I left the Bay Area. Praise the Lord! I will be turning 60 years old this month.

Currently I’m in Spokane, Washington where I am staying with an old friend and his family. I hope to do some preaching here before leaving to travel the upper region of the country. I will be going through Montana, North & South Dakota, before arriving in Minnesota. I plan to preach in about 25 cities. Approximately one third of these will be new cities I haven’t preached in before. The trip is officially underway and will last into June before returning back to California.

On the way here I stopped briefly in Portland to visit a fellow street preacher and some other friends as well. After that it was on to the Seattle area where I spent a week visiting a friend, Skip, who has stage-four cancer. Heavy rains prevented me from preaching in the Seattle area, however my time I spent with Skip was rewarding encouraging him in his faith in Christ. (you could pray for Skip).

Thanks for the prayers. I will keep posting travel reports from time to time. This is my second trip to Chicago and surrounding cities. I was there on a road trip in 2013.

  1. I will pray for Skip. Love Chicago and hope they open their hearts to the Lord and are receptive to you. God bless you, Larry.

  2. Maybe our path will cross as I go west across the top of the country this spring/summer.
