It was a beautiful morning as we traveled to Flying J Travel Plaza near Elkton, Maryland.
Monday, October 14.
I especially enjoy this drive because we travel on back roads.
Now that is an abandoned house. The weeds and vines are covering the first floor.
I find abandoned houses interesting and sad.
I wish we would have had time to stop here and enjoy the apple festival.
There were cars and people everywhere.
I only took pictures of the apples.
We arrived at the truck stop about 10:30 a.m.
It was the first time I saw this chapel in its new location.
The truck stop went through major reconstruction this year, and since the chapel was parked near the building, it had to be moved to the back lot where it stayed (unused) for several months.
Chaplain David (right) is delighted to have the chapel open again and in a great location.
Prior to being moved it was on this side of the fence.
Chaplain David talking to a lady driver. It looks like he is telling her about the chapel.
We were here on this day to cover up this peeling decal.
Measuring the area where the sign will go.
David, Lamar (volunteer chaplain), and Cerwin admiring the finished work.
Putting the CB antenna in place.
Chaplains use the CB to invite drivers to Bible studies and Sunday worship services.
It’s good to know that this chapel is back in operation again.
The cones are temporary protection – so truckers don’t back into the chapel.
Another abandoned building – near the Cracker Barrel where Chaplain David took us for lunch. The truck stop restaurant is not yet open due to reconstruction.
After lunch we went north on Route 279 (about a mile) and stopped to see the other Elkton chapel. I think this is the only place in the ministry where we have two chapels so close.
We didn’t have time to visit Chaplain Jay, but I wanted to see where it was parked as it was moved since I had been there.
It was a good day.
