Well, last week Gary was on a 8 day mission trip with the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. 16 men from 5 different churches traveled to Wind River Wyoming. Gary and 3 other men from our church traveled together via RV. They left Friday, September 23rd at 8:30am. They drove carefully and enjoyed the majesty of God's land along with many fun adventures on the way. Their work at the mission church entailed building a bell tower, constructing a deck, painting trim work around the grounds, building a new sign and many other odd jobs. The congregation members (all Shoshone Indian) were so thankful for the hard physical work, and loved sharing time with these men. I think that both the men from Wisconsin and the people of Wind River Lutheran Church took back something so special from this adventure. Gary in the travels documented so much with his camera. These pictures only give us a glimpse of the beauty that this trip gave him. I have attached the link to the flicker slide show of some of his pictures. We hope that you enjoy.

I am sure that he would have much more to say about this trip, but I thought that I would at least give you the opportunity to see some of the West through his eyes (and camera). Enjoy!
