Blessings in Billings

Wow, we cannot believe how fast this summer has gone by so far! It has been such a blessing to be able to be on Crossroads this summer and be a voice for those who do not have a voice of their own. Right now we are about 65 miles outside of Billings, Montana and we're still trucking along.

It's amazing to see how generous people are in this economy. Today a man at St. Thomas the Apostle Parish shared with one of our walkers a story about how his mother, after she died, left him and his siblings an estate. He said that there was still some money left over and that "it would be an honor to make a donation to help such a worthy cause". We are so grateful for the generosity and kindness of others that makes our walks possible! The support we have received and the inspiring stories people share with us along the way give us that little extra boost to keep going.

This weekend we stayed with 3 amazing host families. Everyone has showed us so much of Christ's love and compassion. It was a hectic weekend with 6 different parishes to speak at, but God put us right where we needed to be.

We all miss our families so much, but we are so thankful for their support in our decision to follow God's call this summer.

Thank you again for all those who have been so generous with their donations and prayers. You all have no idea how much it means to us. We will continue to lift you up in our prayers through the intercession of Our Most Blessed Mother Mary.
