Wow, that seems like a lot but I guess it's about the same every where. There are churches all over the place in St.Louis county, I never thought to count them but some are right across the street from each other.

Very cool ta know. Good ta be back in Missouri, too. Our first Missouri experience was when I went ta college in Rolla, MO, in August of 2003. The MO experience in 2003-05 was a good one. Went for more money in my job (at least ta start out with their moving money) but South Dakota can't hold a candle ta Missouri for a place ta live!

Do they have any of those tent revival meetings where you're at ?
I have never seen one in Missouri but when I was a little kid and we were driving out of California I saw one out in the desert. There was a huge tent with about a thousand people walking around. I asked my dad if we could stop to get some fireworks and he told me, " There's no fireworks there boy, just hippies."
