Such was the case last night in Heyburn Idaho. We found a listing for "Budget Motel", which sounds like it just might be the local roach motel. But- Paula found some great reviews, so we decided to check it out. We'd have to agree with the review which said it was nicer than the more expensive places! The room was modern and spotless, and the staff was friendly. If you're ever in Heyburn (near Twin Falls), it's a great place.
Here's another amazing thing that happened. Yesterday, we had a major piece of equipment stop working, and it was all because of a small broken metal piece:
So, this morning, I went to Snyder automotive in Paul, Idaho. Warren Snyder was able to fix the part by welding a whole new piece in place. He's a great guy- thanks again Warren!
After grabbing some essentials at Walmart (what would we do without Walmart), we headed on to Pocatello. Many days we drive hundreds of miles, but today's show was only 76 miles away.
Here was a new thing for us: We had to stop and wait for a cattle drive in progress!
Our show was at a place called Rocky Mountain Ministries. We've performed here before and we were truly excited to get to come back. They're great people! This is a church that really wants to reach their community- they do that by being relevant. Take a look at their lobby area:
. . . and here's Buddy Greene, the music pastor:
The crowd for the show was awesome! We got to see a lot of our friends from the last time we were in Idaho. Here we are during the show:
After the show, we drove to Idaho Falls. Finding a hotel proved challenging! We finally found a great place, though, and we'll be here for two nights.
We're planning to see Yellowstone park before heading to our next show in Bozeman, Montana. Again, we're truly blessed- we get to see this great nation while doing something we love!
