We arrived yesterday in Colorado Springs and have been enjoying catching up with some old friends and enjoying meeting new friends.
Early Tuesday Jeremie and I left Galesburg and took the train to Chicago then the L to Midway, flew Southwest to Denver and drove to Colorado Springs. We were on the same flight as the guys from Granger so we have had too much fun for one day of travel. (Greetings from Midway says it all!).
Wednesday started with Ministry Tours at Compassion International and New Life Church.
Compassion International’s DataCenter
Second on our Tours was New Life Church
After the Tours at Compassion and New Life we hit Sonic for a little lunch
Ian and Clif had to respond to a crisis at the office, so Ian set up his monster Sonic WiFi rig
After lunch we decided to see some Colorado Spring Sights… Our first stop was the Manitou Springs Cave Dwellings. These dwellings were built between 1100 and 1300 AD

Justin deep in thought…. Jeremie just keeps appearing all over the place.
After the Manitou Cave Dwellings we headed to the Garden of the Gods an awesome park with several huge rock formations.
“Umm that is a big rock”
After the Garden of the gods we decided to take a dirt road with a bunch of switch backs up a mountain, this was a good adventure and provided a ton of great views. This is a panorama from my phone.
We had a great day taking in some sites, the altitude does make you a little more winded when you are climbing rock formations and hills… so now its time to get to bed. The ‘work’ begins tomorrow… MinistryTech starts at 9 am. If you weren’t able to make the trip… join us on the stream.
