Thermopolis: A Beautiful Place With Beautiful People

Sunday: What a peculiar day this has turned out to be. I have been waiting for a Sunday event day this whole trip. Ironically though, after an unfortunate mishap with my bike yesterday, no bike shops are open which has rendered my bike unrideable until West Yellowstone, MT. Oddly enough, this fact isn’t really bothering me; I figure, it’s just a possession, things happen, and I will drive that support van to the best of my abilities until my bike is fixed.
That being said, I have been stoked for a Sunday event day because that meant I could easily attend a church service. I have honestly missed going while I’ve been on the trip so a few two teammates and I decided to attend a service at Community Federated Church. As soon as we walked in the pastor greeted us and just before the actual “meet and greet” portion of the service, introduced us to the congregation. Everybody was so welcoming and supportive; we had many people promise prayers, offer hugs, and even donate to us. After the service and picking up our laundry, we went out to lunch at a cafe near the church where coincidentally, many of the church members were eating. After we had ordered and began to eat when the waitress informed us that both our bill and tip had been covered. While in Thermopolis, we have all been blown away by the kindness and generosity of the people here. I would like to especially thank the pastor and people of Community Federated Church. You showed us extreme kindness and you have no idea how much it means to us. God Bless.
