Thanks so much for the joyful trip we just had with you.  We enjoyed the easy fellowship.  Being Christians, we never dreamed of taking a trip and people would actually pray and sing!! Amazing!!  We also want to thank you for the little things you do for us, such as water, snacks and chocolate.  That cold water always taste good!  Thanks!!

Friends, the summer is closing down on us and if you haven't taken a vacation with the family, time is a wasting. We don't have a clue what the future holds but if you have been putting off family time for too long, you should consider taking time away from the home place and see America as a passenger. Best way to do that here in Jonesboro, is to go see Emelda Williams at Travel With Us Tours and Cruises. I have had the opportunity to travel with them north and south of home and have thoroughly enjoyed my trips. The step-on tour guides she sets you up with are phenomenal with facts and trivia as well as culture and history. The hotel accommodations for your overnight stays are in some of the nicest and cleanest I have seen so a comfortable nights sleep is readily available and the pools were clean too. The food, well I am not a connoisseur, but I did manage to add a couple of pounds which, I needed. However, take some comfortable walking shoes because some things in America are worth looking at in hugging range! America has a lot to be proud of and we as citizens should take the time to explore this great treasure before it is too late. 20 years ago that last statement would have been mocked, but honestly, I think it is a current invitation. You wont be sorry, the new friends you meet, the new experiences you share, and the worry free environment is healthy and renewing. Go see family, just get away and breathe. ( I was not asked to endorse Travel with Us Tours, I really enjoyed my trips!)
