November 14 and 15 we had two great events in Illinois. We shared the gospel through a UniShow at The Mill skate park where they are beginning a skate church and have a great outreach to youth in the area. They were very receptive and many gave the uni a go after the show and did quite well very quickly. There are some very talented skaters and bikers who are excelling at The Mill. It is exciting to see these students investing their time and energy at the skate park rather than the many other negative options out there.
We also presented for a Christian Church Regional Youth Assembly in Springfield and challenged students to live their lives for Jesus and use the gifts He has given them. While we were there, we took a cultural break and visited President Abraham Lincoln's home and tomb and learned more about his life.
Note our remarkable gas fill up in Iowa. Just a few months ago we payed twice as much. We were getting used to a tank being over $100 yet can adapt easily to this new price and are hoping it holds out for our next cross country trip in a few weeks.
