The final stop on our tour was Great Falls, Montana. The city is located along the banks of the mighty Missouri river, the longest river in North America. This impressive body of water flows from Montana to Missouri passing through ten states and two Canadian provinces on the way.
There are a series of five waterfalls on the river and each one has a hydroelectric that generates power, earning Great Falls the nickname “The Electric City.” The history of the city goes back to the Blackfoot Indian tribe long before the United States existed. During the Lewis and Clark expedition began and the Louisiana purchase was being explored Meriwether Lewis was the first white person to set foot in the area that would be known as Great Falls.
The city is also home to Malstrom Air Force Base and the countries largest nuclear arsenal. Thera are 200 minuteman III nuclear missiles in silos all over the area that can hit targets up to 7,000 miles away should the President give the order. I had the chance to visit the base and was filled with gratitude for all the men and women who serve our nation. It broke my heart to hear that Maelstrom has the highest suicide rate of any Air Force Base in the country. We specifically targeted the base as we prepared for the event and made it our aim to make sure everyone there was invited.
The Skull Church event took place in the Mansfield Theater in the Civic Center. It was a beautiful venue and a phenomenal place to worship Jesus and see people touched by His grace. This event was the punctuation mark to an amazing tour. Seeing hundreds and hundreds of people give their lives to God, during these two weeks was mind-blowing and I can’t wait until we get to go out and do it again.
