My father, in fits of civic pride, loves to send me articles about the various stellar accomplishments of his current hometown, St. Louis, MO. One week, I'll receive an article declaring St. Louis to be "The Most Dangerous City in America." The next will find me reading a forwarded study proving that St. Louis has the highest rates of obesity in our nation. Yet another week brings the ringing declaration that St. Louis leads the U.S.A. in gonorrhea infection. Needless to say, my dad is too overwhelmed with self-esteem brought by actually living in the city herself to add much more by way of comment to these reports. They speak for themselves.
So, off Sadie and I fly tomorrow for a week in the Gateway City.
Please pray for us.
