There are many plans in a man’s heart, nevertheless the Lord’s counsel – that will stand. Proverbs 19:21
It is a brand new year and what will it bring? This will be the first time in awhile I do not have my winter calendar already filled with tentative dates and places. At this point I believe I am finished traveling the country in a van. If I were to go anywhere outside of the West Coast I imagine I would fly. After traveling across the country several times the state of California actually seems to be very manageable geographically. I may spend most of the year here on a circuit. After all it is the largest state in the Union and has the overall best weather year round. Los Angeles is the second largest city in the US in which I have barely made a dent in it. My usual summer trips to Washington State & Oregon are also probable.
If our good Lord would allow me, I do plan to go to Alaska in the summer of 2018. This trip would be a priority with a twofold purpose. I will visit my two sons and their respective families including my first only grandson, Dylan. He is about six months old and I have yet to see him in person. The other agenda is to preach in both Juneau (where my sons reside) and Anchorage, Alaska. Juneau is the capitol and I have evangelized there before many years ago, but have never done any street preaching. Also Anchorage is the largest city in Alaska at somewhere over 200,000. Both cities swell with tourists in the summer as well. It is a popular place for outdoor vacations and in recent years cruise ships. At this point July is the target date.
Other trips that seem so far reality at this point are as follows: Honolulu, Hawaii -Washington DC – New York City – Philadelphia – Chicago
