Today we visited the various memorials along the mall in Washington, D.C. First stop was the Vietnam Memorial. Some of our pilgrims personally knew people whose names are engraved in the wall. Al Hoppe found the names of two classmates, C. Gregory Nuckles and Harry W. Wickersham, Jr.
Of course, no visit to Washington is complete without a visit to the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument.
Tomorrow we visit the U.S. Capitol. Tonight is our farewell dinner at La Tomate Restaurant. It has been a wonderful trip, full of God’s grace. We’ve learned so much, enjoyed getting to know one another better, and worshiping together. See you all soon!
