For this state, I tried everywhere imaginable. The problem with these smaller New England states is that you run out of potential options fast. What ultimately happened is, we booked the state of New York with Pastor Adam Sabo (that show took place on June 19). As it turns out, Adam's mom, Sara, is on the board of a Christian Arts Organization in Connecticut. Sara not only booked our show, but generously offered to give us a cottage to stay in while we were here. So, this must be a thing with the Sabos- Adam fixed us up with Wendy and Gary, the two awesome people in New York who gave us a place to stay and fed us every meal while there. Sara provided us with an actual house of our own for two nights, and also fed us every meal while here! Truly, I'm speechless at the level of generosity that's been extended to our family.
This cottage is incredible. It's fully furnished and has a living room, dining room, kitchen, FOUR BEDROOMS, bathroom and shower, and a huge covered front porch!
After the show, I was invited to be a guest on the WILI radio show. Mike and Roger are great radio hosts and it was an honor to be interviewed about our tour.
Tomorrow we head out early. We plan to see New York city on our way to the show in New Jersey. Maybe I'll try to parallel park the trailer in Manhattan. That would certainly be the most amazing feat so far!
Even more amazing is that tomorrow's show will mark the halfway point in the tour! We will have visited and performed in exactly half the nation. It feels like 100 years ago that we began in Alaska but at the same time it feels like it has flown by amazingly fast. It's funny- sometimes we really have to think in order to name which state we're in, and SERIOUSLY none of us ever have ANY CLUE what day of the week it is. But, if the rest of the tour is anywhere near as amazing as the first half, we're in for a great time!
