Sunday, June 9
We enjoy this annual event at Manheim Brethren in Christ Church where we get to tell the children – and a few adults – about Transport For Christ.
Gene Gehman (right) told the children about his love for truck driving and some of the ways he serves God as a truck driver.
Then Cerwin showed PowerPoint slides that explain a bit about trucking and why it is important to have chapels in truck stops.
The children get to meet the truck drivers and climb into the trucks before or after each session in the chapel. Their favorite thing to do is blow the air horns.
The last group heading back to the church.
Inside Gene Gehman’s truck.
I loved seeing the Bible on his dash.
I didn’t think to take a closeup of his truck. It is the brown-toned one (third from the right).
I do have a picture of it on file – from the other month when it was on the cover of the Highway News. If I remember correctly the photo was taken in California.
Next I asked for permission to go inside and photograph John Huber’s truck (the red one).
John and his daughter.
Love this picture.
We never weary of going to churches and telling them about Transport For Christ and the need for more staff and chapels in truck stops.
Many times we get to pray with someone about a concern – and this was one of those days.
Howard and Tish Jones, this picture is for you. Dale Kachel stopped in while we were preparing to close the chapel. He said he knows you from when he lived in your area and attended Davisville Church.
Our next stop was Gene and Rose’s house where we enjoyed a carry-in lunch – which is prepared especially for the truckers and their families.
The weather was perfect for an outdoor picnic and an afternoon of visiting.
Trent is running to join the other boys.
It was a delightful day.
