Ice Fishing on Flathead Indian Reservation

Food and shelter provided by Canyon View Alliance and friends.
Winter cold showed up just in time in Montana.  Felt like a Mongolian morning.

But the tents in the back with propane heaters kept us pretty warm.

Water Springs, Desert Dwellers, Travel Time

Cheyenne came forward to answer God's call to missions.

Bactrian Camels?  What are they doing in Idaho Falls?

Imagine how long this trip to Montana took 200 years ago.
I wager longer than my 4.5 hours over 260 miles to Hamilton, MT.

Idaho Falls and Faithful Future

New Online Trend?

Unilever threatens to pull ads from Facebook and Google


Business Reporter, BBC News

Unilever has threatened to withdraw ads from platforms like Google and Facebook if they do not do enough to police extremist and illegal content. 
Unilever said consumer trust in social media is now at a new low.
"We cannot have an environment where our consumers don't trust what they see online," said Unilever's chief marketing officer Keith Weed.
He said it was in the interest of digital media firms to act before "advertisers stop advertising".
Mr Weed said companies could not continue to support an online advertising industry where extremist material, fake news, child exploitation, political manipulation, racism and sexism were rife.
"It is acutely clear from the groundswell of consumer voices over recent months that people are becoming increasingly concerned about the impact of digital on wellbeing, on democracy - and on truth itself," Mr Weed said....
The BBC contacted Facebook and Google for comment and is waiting for a response.

Skiing at Harriman State Park

The folks at Idaho Falls Church brought me on their annual cross-country skiing outing.  

Harriman state park is about 6,000 feet and only an hour or so drive away.  We had good weather and good time.

Idaho Views

Getting out into nature is one of the ways to unwind and burn calories picked up at church gatherings.
This is a hiking trail/road up Black Rock overlooking Pocatello.
This is one of Mike's favorite places to jump in the water.  
But not in February.

Pocatello People Pictures

Here are some action shots of missions week in Idaho.

There's lots of action shots that center around food.  

Great opportunities to be thankful.  Thanks to Al for taking and sending me these pictures.
