Back from Ohio after a week of campaign work

Caleb and I arrived back in NE late Saturday night and rejoined our family at Church the next day. After getting an average of five hours of sleep all week, it was so nice to sleep in my own bed last night! We had a great trip. It took us about 13/14 hours to get to Zanesville, Ohio, where Dr. Johnston and his family live. Dr. Johnston is running for State Representative, and you can check him out at There were nine people on our team, and we worked for the Johnston campaign Tues., Wed., Thurs. and Friday. Usually we did door-to-door literature drops in the morning, waved "Vote for Johnston" and "Honk for Johnston!" signs at a busy intersection during lunch hour, went back to doing door-to-door for the afternoon, and waved signs again during evening rush hour. My legs were pretty sore after doing all that running. The weather was miserable, too, but the good company and good cause made standing out in the wet, snowy cold worthwhile! It either rained or snowed almost every day we were in Ohio.
The Ohio primaries are tomorrow, and I am eagerly awaiting the election results. There weren't any polls done, so we have no idea what chance Dr. Johnston has of winning. Whatever happens, I am glad I could work for such a godly man, committed to being a public servant and using Biblical principles in our government.
