Lander, Wyoming

We drove from Cody to Lander yesterday. On the way, we stopped at Thermopolis State Park. This is the site of the world’s largest hot springs. While we were there, we conducted a worship service and ate lunch. We were there for about 3 hours. The hot springs are worth a visit. We left there and drove through Wind River Canyon. It was absolutely breathtaking! Pictures will follow at a later date. Last night, we attended church at Calvary Baptist Church in Riverton, WY. It was a LONG service, and very different from what we are used to. It must be a cultural thing. Today, we toured a few of the sites found on the Wind River Indian Reservation. We visited the grave of Sacajawea, she was the Shoshone guide who served as a translator for Lewis and Clark in 1805-1806. We also visited the grave of Chief Washakie, who was chief of the Shoshone for 60 years. He was a brave warrior, who always sought the best for his people. We also visited the ceremonial grounds for the Eastern Shoshone people. It has bee na great day thus far. Tonight, we are supposed to go to a service on the Shosone reservation.

Please pray for our trip. We have been blessed with great weather, safe travel and patient people. Some things have not been as advertised, but we are trying to cope. We will see what the next few days hold for us!
