9) Ate at the famous Mr. Spriggs BBQ. The meat fell right off the blessed bone!

6) Saw the Tornado-savvy and focused Pastor Phil in his element. I learned about updrafts, clouds organizing, and tornadic storms. I never even knew that “tornadic” was a word. “Discover the Excellence!”

3) Had several edifying conversations about Paul's environmentalism.
2) Got to spend some time with the fine people of Fort Smith, Arkansas.

1) Was reminded that Christians can rise to be truly wonderful when pressed into action.
