On The Road To L’viv With Bus B

I wish you could see the scene where I am now. On the back of Bus B. We have finished off our bag dinner. (For those dying to know what that was like: a ham sandwich and some very good wafer cookies. It hit the spot just right) 

  All the luggage didn’t fit today and so the very back seat is crammed with luggage and one very limber Austin Daniel. To my right and left Mickey Daniel and David Schuler are reading and playing games on their iPads and Jim Clayman is asleep. Up ahead it is dark and looks like everyone is about to nap a while. I’m typing this with my IPhone because it is the only thing I can hang on to and type. Pardon any typos.  

 Our schedule says this is a three hour drive to L’viv tonight. The highway to Rivne was pretty good and this one tonight seems good as well. It will be after midnight before we get to L’viv. 

Tonight’s concerts were well attended though the hall was not completely full. The audience seemed to be a little younger. They very much responded to Lance Brown our guest painter. They also liked the song Mighty To Save. 

Overall the men and orchestra (I’m in the band, have to give them some props) presented another two great concerts. Michael Gott spoke a word of Hope and the Gospel.

We tried to get some video shot of a song or two tonight and I also have Bro Michaels devotional from this morning to post. Will try to get those up sometime tomorrow. 

Once again thank you for your consistent prayers on our behalf, especially those voiced at the same time as our concerts. 

Tomorrow is a big day with back to back concerts in the famous L’viv Opera House. We get to do some sightseeing as well which will be a nice break and change of pace.

I will try and get more pictures and videos posted as soon as we can. Thanks for all the words of encouragement you are giving on the blog. We topped over 2,800 views yesterday from 8 different countries. How cool is that!

So that is all for tonight from the back of Bus B somewhere in Western Ukraine.
