For trivia buffs – Tullamore is the first place mentioned in the song “I’ve been everywhere, man!”

How flat it is out here, with enormous colorful skies and roads that stretch on in an attempt to reach horizons that just go on and on.
With recent rain, and more expected next week, the young wheat crops are looking very healthy and there is a promise of a good harvest in November.
The highlight of this stop was the two days/nights we spent with Ron and Elva Horsborough. This dear Christian couple, now in their late 70s, befriended Gary 44 years ago during his first teaching appointment at Tullamore. They are still befriending those in need and have continued to faithfully serve God in this district.
This tiny township has changed little since Gary was here in 1967 and 68. What has changed is the school, which now has twice the number of buildings, four times the number of secondary teachers (now 4) to meet the needs of a school population that has remained about the same.
