Our first item of business in town? Don (our Pastor-to-be) enjoyed a Cardinal Sin.
Well, actually "Cardinal Sin" is the name of a milkshake made by Ted Drewes, St. Louis' world-famous custard stand. The "Cardinal Sin" is frozen vanilla custard with hot fudge and lots of tart cherries mixed in. Yum! Our visit to Ted Drewes fulfilled a promise to a good Bakersfield friend of ours who gave us a send-off gift with one string attached: that we use a portion of the gift for a visit to Ted Drewes! (You know who you are...thank you! Wish you could have been there with us to enjoy it with us!)
Hannah also enjoyed her very first ice cream (well, frozen custard) cone at Ted Drewes!
We are staying in the on-campus dorms tonight and tomorrow, and will move in to our new apartment (pictured below) on Monday. Don's mom, "Grammies," and his eldest brother, "Uncle Dan," are due to join us to help move-in and enjoy the sights over the 4th of July here in this wonderful city.
Thank you for your continued love, prayers, and support. We know God blessed and strengthened us on our cross-country journey because of your prayers. You are a blessing to us. Feel free to call, email, write, and pray as God leads you.
We love you,
DR, SR, HR, & ER
