It is Saturday Morning, June 15th. After a good night sleep, we found out who’s air mattress stayed up and who’s didn’t. After having breakfast, cleaning up, and taking a group picture, We left the church about 9:30 a.m. We stopped at a sculpture place called world of Dr Evermor. Here is the website They had lots of cool sculptures.

We got rain in Belvidere, IL to Angola, IN.
After being on the road for a while, we stopped at Walmart to get a few things (like an air mattress or two). We were going to get food to cook out for lunch but it was raining too hard and we stopped at Chipotle for lunch. Then we were back on the road. 2 miles down the road one of the Youth stated that they left their bag at Chipotle. So one of the vehicles went back to get it.
We all finally arrived at the First Congregational Church in Angola, IN at 8:45pm. It stopped raining by the time we arrived there. John and Joe are going to get pizza for supper. That really sounds good after a long days drive. The Youth have their beds set up for the night and are playing hide and seek, while waiting for supper to get done. The next time you see Pastor Glen at church ask him about Banana Math.


It is 11 p.m. and we finally made it into Baraboo WI. We had planned to be here by 9:30pm, but we had some issues while driving here. We ran out of gas in one of our vehicles and the other one lost its tail lights but we all made it here safe and sound. We just need to pray for tomorrow that we have a safe travel day to Angola, IN, our next stopping spot for the night on Saturday (6/15). We got a tour of the church in Baraboo WI. It is a Beautiful!!! They have a light that is shined one of their stained glass windows that goes off on a timer.

The kids are having a fun time. They are playing hide and go seek. They do this each year. The churches have so many good places to hide, it’s so hard to find them. The game can go on forever.
Please continue to pray for safe travels.

Well it early Friday Morning (6/14). Campers either finishing up packing for the trip or fast to sleep dreaming of what they need to do the next day. The Youth have their own Packing list and the Adults have their own. The Adults List is longer due to they are asked to bring Tools, Ladders and Coolers. This year our camp we are going to has stated that they have all the Ladders they need and have asked for the campers (Youth Groups) not to bring any. That will save lots of room in the U-Haul Trailer.

The 11 campers, will be meeting at the Church (First Congregational Church Cannon Falls) at 5pm to load up the U-Haul and the 2 vehicles that will be going on the trip. We will have a Prayer for safe travels and the folks that we will be serving during the week (June 16-22). Then Say bye to our love ones and hope to be on the Road by 5:45pm. We will be stopping in Baraboo, WI on Friday Night (6/14) and then stopping in Angola, IN. We will be staying at First Congregational Churches in both cities. Then be in Parma, OH between noon and 2pm on Sunday (6/16). So stay tune for more posts and pictures as the week goes on. I will leave you with this Photo of the Bulletin Board that was put up by Sandra Maglic. She did an AWESOME JOB!!! Thanks Sandra!


The Youth and their friends are going to Parma, OH for this summers Mission Trip June 16-22. They will be doing home repair and learning about God’s Love.  Please tune in later for their Mission updates.
