Lander is a beautiful part of the world! It is not uncommon to hear people say that they can worship God anywhere and do not need to “go to a specific church” to do so.

Admittedly, the handiwork of our God is readily evident in this part of the country and it is easy to feel a sense of awe and to speak in hushed tones when you are standing in the middle of the Windriver Mountains.
