Today we left our room at the Econolodge and went outside to read the bible. After reading we started walking to Abingdon, VA. It was a very rainy day and we were pretty soaking wet. When we just about arrived into the town we felt God leading us to a church called Pilgrim Baptist, and it was a pretty cool name since it is kind of related to what we are doing. Conveniently when we arrived there was a banquet going on for a school’s basketball team. Jon, one of the people in charge of the banquet invited us in for dinner. It was a potluck feast! God lead us there just in time before they started to pray for the food. While we were there we talked to a bunch of the coaches who were interested in what we were doing. Jon blessed us by paying for a stay at a really nice Quality Inn that evening. Also Jim, one of the guys we talked to gave us tickets to see the movie God’s Not Dead. So when we got to the hotel Jon took us to the movies. The movie was really good and inspiring. Of course there was only a little bit of cheesy acting because it’s a Christian movie, but it wasn’t a lot. It was actually pretty good. After the movie we walked back to the hotel and worked on the blog, pictures, and videos of the trip, and then went to sleep. God always provides and cares for his children when you least expect it.10246536_246778432175651_1363470148_n
