Final Grand Canyon Tour Day.....

The final day the kids were to ride did not go as expected but then life never does right? We woke up to this....

Which quickly turned into this......

And it basically snowed sideways all day.....


The kids of course are kids and so even after a little disappointment in not being able to ride today, they played in the snow and then we loaded them all up and took them to the movies to see Heaven is For Real. We walked around the new REI store out here and also found a coffee shop with couches and a fire place that made AMAZING hot chocolate and coffee. So in the end we had a great time. We felt everyone covering us in prayer. Nobody got hurt, the riders were safe and protected on the highways and we all learned one very important thing......in the whole big picture we are just a tiny little speck. Only for a short season do we get to be here impacting people for Christ; so get out there, see Gods creation, meet some fascinating people who have their own stories to tell and love on them along the way. We even  met a man who was from the Philippines who was on a four year bike tour around the world. Crazy right! The kids thought he was so cool ha! 

Thank you again for all your prayers and financial support to give Ryanne and her team the opportunity to experience something so rare and so amazing. They are a great group of kids who just love seeing their surroundings from a bicycle. Blessings!
