I have added Nebraska and Iowa to my list of visited states this week, and boy do these Okabojians have a lovely lifestyle. It was very cool early this morning for golf, and by mid day perfect weather had arrived. During lunch we watched colorful orioles feeding on grape jam outside the porch as jealous squirrels watched them enter the cage with envy.
The outdoor tabernacle service last night had well over 1000 in attendance with a fine praise band and an 8 piece brass ensemble that entertained with jazz and a march and then beautiful harmonys for the offering and special music.
The Author of Becoming a contagious Christian spoke on evangelism last evening very effectively. The crowd is clearly older, although they had a good number of elementary kids leave before the service for there own teaching, but the music is quite loud and contemporary.
