Red Jeep Journal

Hope and I are in Millersburg, Ohio. I am preaching to teens at Skyview Ranch. Skyview is in the heart of the Ohio Amish Country. I have always loved this area. It has a wholesome feel to it.
The house where we are staying this week has a wide, shady porch and Hope has spent hours there reading. We have had time for some drives in the Ohio countryside to see tidy Amish farms among the hills and sample the local food and baked goods. It would not be good for me to come here often.
The weather as been perfect this week. We had a few showers yesterday but I was taking a nap when they came. It may have rained in the night once, but the campers have enjoyed a picture-perfect week. I have been teaching Romans to the teens. It is a delight to have a week to teach a book of the Bible to young people and watch drink in the truth.
This week a group of students from Cedarville University has been leading worship in chapel. They are outstanding young men and women and they have made preaching a joy. Their band is called Heartsong. They connect with the students and lead worship that is meaningful and powerfully Christ-exalting.
A Delightful Surprise
Years ago we started a church not far from here. One day I called on a young man in the hospital who had rolled a cement truck. His name was Lewis. I led Lewis to Christ that night. His wife was there and when I left she took the tract I left and went to the hospital chapel and prayed to follow Christ. The next day Lewis died. They had a little boy named Wes who was four at the time. Wes manages a restaurant not far from here so he and his mother and a friend came to chapel to hear me preach last night. There is no joy like the joy of following Christ and making Him known. Only God knows what will happen when we are faithful at that.
