We asked our Parish Priest, Father Ryan to bless our camper before we left Oregon. Not only was he willing to do that but he asked us to come up after mass so that the whole congregation could pray a blessing on us and our future as missionaries. After mass, he blessed each of us (including baby to be), our camper and van with Holy Water.
Father Conyard, who is more like the Eckstine family chaplain, came out to the farm to pray over us too. He himself is a missionary priest and gave us some good words and blessings.
Thank you to our Fathers who keep us in their prayers, give us guidance and are an inspiration to us.
