Indiana, as you can see from the pictures was another night run. We almost prefer the night or weekends because the traffic is usually less and the parking options are more plentiful, but not tonight. We got to town just about the same time as thousands of others - literally thousands of others. They were on their way to the Colts / Patriot's game though. Lucas Oil field is just down the block from the capitol building and every parking space was taken for quite a distance around the capitol. We finally found parking in a government parking garage open for the night to accommodate game goers - for a price - of course!

Indianapolis has done a nice job of rehabilitating their downtown, it is very clean and attractive. The night was unseasonably warm and quite pleasant so we walked around a bit and discovered the Civil War Monument with the horse drawn carriages waiting to take visitors for tours around the immediate area. We didn't take a tour but sure enjoyed the ambiance.

We are working diligently to get previous state entries caught up. Maybe by tomorrow eve we will have them all filled in. Thank you for your prayers, they are a huge help. We plan on being in DC on Tuesday, it looks like we'll make the proclamation during the daylight hours, please pray that we have favor to finish this mission.

Thank you, you are all special to us and we thank YHVH for each of you!
