To add to the mix on Friday afternoon, Gus, as we've affectionately named the 16 Days shuttle bus, decided to stop working 88 miles east of Denver, CO at a Shell station.
God is working out all the details, and has actually, in His typical fashion, used this small delay to point us toward people He wanted us to see and share His love with! I love how God works!
BTW, the the people in the photo are people we met when the bus broke down who love Jesus and are praying for the team.

We witnessed the face of a 40 foot high cliff collapse from a distance, built and "sailed" cardboard boats, shared Christ with an indigenous "Franklin, NE" tribe, and swam in the river.
Keep praying. God is working!

We also welcomed a new member to the team: Paul Ladd, videographer. Yeah, Paul! The bus is full! God is leading!
Left Minneapolis a few hours ago. Rob taught a lesson as we were riding in "Gus the Bus" on identity in Christ and how deeply He loves us. Now were listening to worship music and praising our King ...on the road. Powerful!
Beautiful. Sweet times. God IS awesome! Praise Him.
We just finished engaging the street culture of the downtown area... people without food, people in suits, people without homes, people with colored skin, people with disabilities.
Jesus loves. Jesus cares. How can we be his hands and feet? The team is learning. Please keep praying!

Great campfire conversation about God and fun stories. Almost a full moon. BIG mosquitoes! Lovin it!
Deyo time this morning was cool... prayer, convo, questions, honest sharing. Getting ready to head out ok the road in a few minutes. Thanks for praying for the team!
The we ate some UNBELIEVABLY mouth-watering Chicago style pizza from Rosati's Pizza. Incredible. We stuffed ourselves before jumping back in the bus and driving to a campsite in Wisconsin...

We're heading for a stop in Chicago on our way to Wisconsin for the night. The team is doing great, so far :) Pray for safety on the road.

Who is YOUR first love? Is Jesus everything? Who's your King? It's not about us. It's not about you. It's all about HIM.
Love GOD. Love PEOPLE.

Just passed some storms in eastern CO. Pretty heavy rain! Rusty's driving now as we head into NE. Most everyone's sleeping on the bus ...looking forward to crashing at the Bislow's!
We're all really looking forward to meeting each student as we embark on 16 Days of life-transforming experiences and encounters with God ...starting at Bethel College in Mishawaka, IN on Sat afternoon!
Can't wait to see what God does! We're expecting great things!
