Tuesday, Dec.29, we pulled up to the Hicks and were warmly greeted and invited on a hike around their property which felt good after the 8 hour trip from Sanibel. Out by the pond we ate oranges fresh off the tree. Before this trip I’d never even seen oranges on a tree! It wasn’t long before Mr. Hicks fired up the four wheelers and we started an exciting ride through the woods. This was also a first for several of us and we were thrilled.
The next morning delicious aromas of freshly baked cinnamon rolls filled the air. They were so good and many of us lost count of how many we ate! Before packing up we enjoyed watching Picture Proverbs that brought the wisdom of Solomon to life. After our group picture, we were off. I look back and would say that the highlight of this visit was the meaningful, uplifting conversation that were a tremendous reminder that our God is trustworthy and we can depend on him. The oneness of Christian fellowship has been such an encouragement on this incredible vacation!
