This past June, 21 of us from the Children's Equipping Center at IHOP traveled to Colorado in 2, 12 passenger vans to do a Signs and Wonders Camp. While driving in Colorado, we spotted the above sign that said, "POINT OF INTEREST", so we decided to stop and check out the "so called" attraction. The picture below is the fascinating museum that we found, as the "POINT OF INTEREST".

Notice, the hand-painted sign that says "SEE 6 STATES". This museum claimed that if you climbed its tower you could see 6 states from this one spot. I climbed the tower, it cost me $1.00. I looked. I saw. I was pretty high off the ground and to be honest, I have no idea if I actually saw 6 states. Apparently someone erased the squiggly lines that designate the state boundaries- where one state ends and one state begins on my map.

The real interesting thing about this museum was all of the ancient western artifacts and collectibles that this old guy had. There were old bottles, arrow heads, cars, books, "artwork", dishes, clothing... it was like the Ingalls family had a yard sale and this guy bought it all! Among the artifacts were also some really freaky stuff like albino snakes or pig embryos in jars of formaldehyde. But the freakiest of them all, was the two headed calf pictured below, along with a copy of one of my favorite books!

I can think of no better picture to promote unity and world peace than this! Eat your heart out Al Gore. Everyone has a place in this world folks, even my friend Brad the Two-Headed Calf.

Dear Randy,

Please come home from vacation soon. Since you've been gone, the Prayer Room has been remodeled. Again. The stage is now all white. Completely white. So white in fact that if you gave it another go as one of Marcus' backup singers, we'd only see your shirt, that is, as long as you weren't wearing a white shirt. I hope Eddie James is the new "Misty", cause he's the only one that's gonna look good on stage. Only this would mean that now Eddie is Jesus' favorite and not Misty, but only because Jesus can't see Misty on the webcast. One thing's for sure, when the rock falls through the roof, and lands on the stage, we'll know it. Hopefully it won't land on any white people cause we won't know who died.

The new drum cage is pretty cool. Or should I say "drum condo". Yes it's as big as a house. So big in fact, UPS delivers. And I think I saw someone deliver a casserole to Joel Sorge during a set!

Oh, yeah Lou just pulled into town and him and Mike are planning world domination. This is like watching a game of "Spiritual Risk" and we're the very coveted Australia.

Your Friend, John
