Kansas Trip Journal 5

On Sunday morning, July 12, we were back in Salina. I gave a 12-minute missions report at CrossRoads Church, where Ron Bowell is pastor.

This church has flags hanging from the ceiling – illustrating the nations where the Brethren in Christ have missionaries or churches.

P1020083

This is the flag of India, which you may have already recognized.

For dinner we went to the town of Lindsborg, known for its Swedish arts, crafts and food. We ate at the Swedish Crown, then visited the studio and store of Jim Richardson, a National Geographic photographer. Amazing images in his display! The views of the Flint Hills of KS are exceptional. See his website: http://www.jimrichardsonphotography.com.

Lindsborg has several decorative dala horses.

The dala horse is a traditional statue that originated in the Swedish province of Dalarna.

On Monday evening, our last evening in KS, we had a hot dog roast at Jerry and Vi’s place, where we were staying. This was a belated celebration of JoLene’s birthday; hot dogs are one of her favorite foods.
