Montana Adventures

The chilly winds are blowing here in Montana, but the friendship has been warm. After sharing in Gillette, Wyoming over the weekend, we're enjoying a few days with friends in the western, mountain country. As our host family have been laboring for the gospel as part of a church plant, we've had some rich conversations and fellowship.

And in spite of the 40 - 50 degree temps [and wind!], we bundled up to enjoy the beauty of 'Big Sky Country'!

How good and how pleasant it is to gather with the body of Christ.
To stir one another on to "love and good works"!

Joyfully in Jesus,

I love Montana! I was up there when I was maybe 8. All that open country...and the sunsets...and the wheat fields. The wheat at least you don't usually see in NE. (-:

Nice to find another family where the ladies always wear dresses/skirts...like ours do. The cowboy look suits young Mr Wissmann well.
Be blessed y'all

After watching the PBS show "Frontier House", my husband wants to move to Montana.

While I'm not quite *there* yet, it IS beautiful country to be sure! Glad you had a chance to enjoy it.
