* Furlough - Spokane

We left Redlands, California in the wee hours of the morning to make our way to Spokane, Washington.  Rev. Rodney and Liz Kleyn met us at the airport with some of their family and took us to their home.


On that first day we drove a little ways out of Spokane to visit my nephew, Neal, who lives near there.  On the way home we stopped in downtown Spokane to see the Spokane River.

Rev. Kleyn's parents were still in Spokane from an earlier trip there.  Also, his sister Heidi, her husband, Mike, and their 6 children made the trip down from Edmonton, Canada to see us.  It was great to catch up with them all.  We enjoyed some great family times in the middle of the beautiful mountain scenery.......


Biking....




Hiking....

Eating....


And visiting around the campfire
(some of the church members also visited around the campfire one night)



On Sunday we had church at 10:00 am and at 2:00 pm with lunch and the presentation in between, all mixed with good fellowship.

And questions

On Monday it was time to bid family and friends farewell and to continue onto our next stop, Loveland PRC in Loveland, Colorado.
