Day 44 to 56

12/9 to 12/21
I told myself when I started this trip that I needed to be real flexible on what can and does happen from day to day.  I was planning on being close to the Louisiana border by now, however I am still between Anson and Abilene at the ranch of the family that adopted me.  They are so far out in the country that there is only sporadic cell service and no internet.  I am in Abilene right now to pickup some lumber for a building project I am doing for these nice people.  I have had a few people contact me that are worried that I will be spending Christmas alone in some cold windy place.  This family are making sure that doesn't happen.  They are so good to me.  The following is a shot gun summary of some of things that have been happening:  Have had two newspaper interviews.  Might being doing a TV thing next week.  Spoke at a church and it went very well.  My host, who thought she was a Christian for the last 60 years, accepted Christ into her life for reals after reading my book. I am so jazzed about this, I can't express it words.  My son Chris sent me a box of 45 books.  Tiffany at the Anson newspaper is going sell some and the church I spoke is going to sell the rest.  Tiffiany is also going to writing a weekly diddy on the journey.  Have established a real friendship with several people, but especially little Noah.  We spend a lot of time together. Going to spend part of Christmas with another family that takes care of five very disabled kids.  All it has been an amazing unscheduled stop and I know there is much more to come.  God is so wonderful and I pray that you and your family have a wonder Christmas.  Please cherish each other. One picture is of my wonderful little camper and the other is of Noah being part of the worship team at Coyboy Church. Dave
