Pine Creek, MT

I’ve joined a local hiking group here on our new field, and had conversations about my faith and reason for moving to Montana. The group seemed surprised that I was ‘a normal looking guy.’ They seem open for future conversations, and even commented that they would like to ‘try’ our church some time. Addie is […]
