Chapter 3

I felt I should take the lead and do the talking, although I had no idea what to say. I didn't want to lie, so I said, "We are not sure exactly where we are. We are away from our parents and this is the first town that we came to. We are hoping our folks come and meet us here." I felt it didn't make much sense, but it was the best I could come up with.

"So, you got separated from your folks? Maybe I can help, my name is Jake Ross. I'm the pastor here. Most people call me Pastor Jake. When did you last see your folks?"

Pastor Jake was thin, short, and young -- too young to be a minister. Most ministers we knew were old. He was full of energy and very outgoing, and we liked him immediately.

"Last night," said Mitch.

"Well, I'm sure they will be looking for you, and this should be the closest town they come to. I'll tell you what, you can stay here at the church. We have two sleeping rooms you can use until they get here. What are your names?"

"I'm Amy Peterson. This is Joe and Mitch Anderson."

"It's very nice meeting you. You must be tired and hungry. Come in and make yourselves at home. I'll get someone from the livery stable to come and care for your wagon and horses. I want to also tell Sheriff Thomas that you are here, in case your parents show up. Maybe he can send out a search party for your folks. Have you been traveling all night?"
