—  118 —

Today was the First day that I’ve seen my old friend Pastor Cliff since 2014.

That year I was returning from a bicycle ride to Crater Lake, Oregon and I met him in Whitefish, Montana where we first met.

In 2014, Cliff was visiting friends in Whitefish for either Independence Day or Labor Day, I’m not sure which.

In 2001 he became the new Pastor of the Whitefish Church of the Nazarene. I met him there shortly after the events of 9/11.

Today, six days before Labor Day, 2022, we met again — by Appointment.

I was planning to look Cliff up when I got to Lewiston, Idaho, since that is where he was working in 2014, but yesterday I got the impression that I should try to find out if he and his family were still there.

As it turns out, he moved to Grandview, WA a couple of years ago.

And, as it further turns out, Grandview is only 44 miles from where I was camped in Yakima yesterday, so it’s a great place for me to charge the scooter today AND it’s a great place to visit with an old friend, too.

Small world.

God IS Good ALL the time!

Before arriving in Grandview my route meandered through a number of back roads servicing the myriad of farms in the Yakima Valley.

It was wonderful to see once again how richly God has chosen to bless the USA.

Grandview, Washington isn’t anywhere close to Oklahoma, but the corn around the Nazarene Church truly is “as high as an elephant’s eye.” And that is no exaggeration!

It is certainly a privilege and blessing to live here.

In Pasco, another Nazarene Church sign proclaimed the obvious.

This photo was taken at 5:59 PM just 30 minutes before I arrived at the Pasco KOA Campground.

Probably won’t need the down quilt tonight!…
