Saint Matthew Catholic Church in Kalispell, Montana.
Dedicated in 1910 and very imposing.
Time for a haircut
I was getting a bit shaggy, so Jewel took care of me with a great haircut. She has three young children and is planning to homeschool them in order to give to them every blessing she can.
Don and Judy Landers
I had my first break down today right after saying farewell to Fr. Miller. One of the spokes that holds the rear wheel together snapped with a loud ping, making the bicycle all but unridable. Some things I can fix but a broken spoke isn't one of them. It was a blessing that I'd traveled only twenty miles from Kalispell where there's a good bike shop that can get me back on the road sometime tomorrow morning.
It was an even greater blessing to met Don and Judy Landers.
Knowing that I needed a way to get back to Kalispell, I realized that I had no choice other than to beg for a ride and hope that someone would eventually have mercy on me. I can't begin to tell you how many years it's been since I've tried hitchhiking and wasn't very happy at all about giving it a try. Don and Judy had just filled up their motor home with gas and were ready to continue their journey. Judy gave me a wave from her passenger seat which gave me the courage to wave in return. As she opened her door to see if I needed any help, I told her and her husband of my problem and they immediately offered to to give me a ride. Where were they going? To Kalispell!
They invited me to dinner and we just said goodnight after a most enjoyable evening with new friends. God really does provide, all we have to do is to learn to trust.
