THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES.....DECEMBER 2016

12-10-16 Saturday 6:37 AM (Haiti Time) - Bon Repos, Haiti - Air Mobile Base Camp  - Report submitted by:  Air Mobile Joe

CLEAN WATER DELIVERY


Flew the Little Donkey to Les Cayes yesterday.  Normally, a 4+ hour grueling drive.  The flight takes 37 minutes. That's the way to go!


Along with me, had Jose and Kindra of "Vision 4 Word", a relief mission deeply involved in Haiti after Hurricane Matthew.

Kindra worked very closely with R.A.M. (Remote Area Medical) doing the food drops into the hardest hit areas.

They accompanied me on the Cayes flight to be trained on the Air Mobile Rescuer and meet with their crew on the ground.

When we landed, I was met by my dear friend of many years, John Vrooman.  Cindy has known John & Diane for nearly 40 years.  They are amazing missionaries and we love them!!


John was there to assist me in the training session.  The Air Mobile Rescuer is an awesome machine.  John and I have deployed Rescuers all over the Cayes Region.

Today, we'd train team members from the Gascov Clerge Foundation (GCF).  GCF has been on the "front lines" of relief since Hurricane Matthew ravaged the southwestern tip of Haiti.  God bless these folks!!

GCF sent a wonderful delegation of Trainees and they were excellent students!  It was a pleasure training them on the simple operation and maintenance of the Air Mobile Rescuer.

At the end of the training, my favorite task is to present the Air Mobile Rescuer.  These folks will use this machine to save lives and bring clean water to the thirsty!!  Yes, I love my job!!

BTW, if you'd like to know about Gascov Clerge Foundation, here's their website - GASCOV CLERGE FOUNDATION

Afterwards, we bid farewell to John and the GCF team and flew back to Port-au-Prince.  John snapped this shot as we took off.  Pretty little bird!


Once back in Port-au-Prince, we presented an Air Mobile Rescuer to Kindra of "Vision4Word"

Kindra is going into some of the hardest hit areas and often treks in by foot.  The Rescuer will be invaluable, life-saving tool for her missions. 

Yes, "Surely, our Lord knows how to deploy His troops!"  So, what does this day hold?  Since "This is the day that the Lord has made",   I'm rejoicing and holding tightly onto His hand.  

As always, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!!

THE GALLOPING DONKEY!

With all 14 fuel tanks plumbed and pumping properly, the Little Donkey could finally get back in the air carrying vital supplies to those devastated by Hurricane Matthew in Haiti.  YEA!!

On Wednesday afternoon, Cindy and Ari helped me sort through the supplies and put a beautiful load together.  

The loading process takes hours and at times, it's difficult to decide what to bring and what to leave behind.

Early yesterday morning, after some sweet time in prayer and...a careful look at the weather, decided it was time to GO!

Arrived at the airport before sunrise, did a final top off of fuel, a close inspection and a final Weather Check.  There was only 1 storm along the route and...it was growing rapidly.  Better get going.

Storms in the Caribbean have a tendency to grow at lightening speed and even "explode" with fierceness.  This storm was between South Florida and Cuba and moving eastward at about 40+mph.

I climbed to 15,000 feet and waited for the beautiful sunrise.  I knew in just about an hour or so, would need to deal with that looming storm ahead.  


video
Here's a quick video from the "Flight Deck" of the Little Donkey as I was leaving Florida behind - 

As I approached the storm, was very THANKFUL for all of those fuel tanks, which were working beautifully!

I could hear airliner after airliner deviating around this bad boy and as I got closer to it, I could see why.  This thing was ugly and getting uglier by the minute!

You know, in life, we can simply "side-step" some storms.  We don't have dive into them.  Hmmmm, there's a good lesson there.

Well, I called Miami Center and asked for a left deviation and made a 90 degree turn AWAY from that honker.  After a few miles....AHHHH, CLEAR SKIES AND SMOOTH SAILING.

The rest of the flight was literally smooth as silk.  Managed to average around 170 knots and the Little Donkey flew like a dream!!

Landed at Port-au-Prince right on time.  The Haitian Officials were gracious (I never take that for granted).  Our Lord has truly given us FAVOR in Haiti!!

Barb was there.  We loaded up the "GOODS" and headed to the Village.  Here I am, sitting at my "Haiti Desk", sipping a delicious Mocha Latte and thanking God for the privilege to serve Him!!




Will be delivering a number of Air Mobile Rescuers today to "Ground Zero".  

Folks are thirsty, hungry and sick.  The storm has destroyed their crops, roads and homes and there is no Government "Safety Net" for these, "The least of these among us"!

As always, THANK YOU for your precious and invaluable and truly appreciated prayer, love and support!!!

EARLY....

The most peaceful time of the day is in the early hours.  Most are in their deepest sleep.  It's a very calm & tranquil time.  It's a good time to reflect and pray.  

The Psalmist David was an early riser.  It's a great way to start the day.

Sitting here with a good cup of coffee, I'm overwhelmed by God's unfailing love.

Some are, by nature, early risers. Others are not.  If you're in that category (late riser), may I encourage you to give it a try.  Just go to bed a bit earlier than usual and set the alarm earlier than usual.  

If you drink coffee, I strongly urge you to pour a good cup.  Pull out your Bible and just see if the Lord won't meet you there.  What have you got to lose.....give it a shot and see.  Your day will probably go better.

Have a lot of work to today.  Heading to the airport early to get things ready for the "next mission".

I know I tell you this every single day, but I mean it with all of my heart...THANK YOU for your invaluable prayer, love and support!!

75 YEARS AGO TODAY


Many members of my family went to WAR because of what happened on this day 75 years ago.  Let us remember.  

The attack on Pearl Harbor changed the course of history and resulted in millions of lost lives and untold suffering.  WAR is a terrible thing.

One would hope that we would learn from History, but unfortunately, HISTORY DOES REPEAT ITSELF.

However, I know, according to the Word of God, that Jesus is coming back and God's peace will rule and reign on this earth.  PLEASE return soon, Lord Jesus!!  

May God's Will be done on earth as it is in heaven!!  It's time to head out into this beautiful day.  

As always, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!

A SURPRISE VISIT

Yesterday was a BLESSING!  Met with Dr. Daniel from Ecuador, along with his family.  He came to the U.S. to tell us THANK YOU for the Air Mobile Rescuer!

Following the devastating earthquake that rocked Ecuador, Air Mobile was able to go there and bring clean water to the thirsty.  

Among the many great people we worked with was Dr. Daniel.  His Medical Foundation reaches thousands with life-saving health care.

It was our joy to present him with an Air Mobile Rescuer.  He went right to work with this wonderful tool and gave clean water to thousands.  God bless you, Dr. Daniel!

I recall training Dr. Daniel.  He was a good student and even drank water from the bucket that had my hot, sweaty foot in.

This is the part of my job that I love!!

Looking forward to returning to Ecuador and working with Dr. Daneil!  BTW, CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network) funded 20 Rescuers for Ecuador.  THANK YOU, Brian Scott & CBN!!

After meeting with Dr. Daniel and his family, headed over to Orlando to have dinner with Joe Polozola. 

 You may recall, it was Joe who, 47 years ago, fearlessly and relentlessly told me how much Jesus loved me....even though I was a "Rascal".  

The message finally penetrated my thick skull and stony heart and I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior.  Joe is my best friend on this earth.  

We get together regularly and have a delightful time remembering old stories and most important, PRAYING TOGETHER.  Thank God for friends who don't let friends go to hell.  THANK YOU, JOE! 

Paul, our mechanic, has that cable installed and we hope to take the Little Donkey up for a test flight today.  Looking forward to flying that sweet bird again.

Time to head out into this beautiful day and see what our Lord has in store.  It's sure to be a wonderful adventure.  As I say every single day and mean with all of my heart, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!

REFRESHING....

It's good to hear real Christmas Carols (& not HOLIDAY SONGS) being sung throughout America.  It seems there's a new freedom to express one's faith and not be so dang... "Politically Correct".  


Who knows...we may be moving toward putting CHRIST back into CHRISTMAS & that would be a GOOD MOVE!!

Yes, Cindy and I believe that America is steering "Back on Course".  We are a free nation and should be able to express our FAITH!  Yes, it's REFRESHING!

We'll be working on the Little Donkey today, getting it ready for the next "Mission to Haiti".  Paul (our Mechanic) told me that the cable to switch fuel tanks has arrived.  Yea!!

Hope you're enjoying the Season and remember, it's all about Celebrating the Birth of Jesus, the SAVIOR of the world!!  Be blessed!

THANK YOU, as always, for your precious and truly appreciated prayer, love and support!!

CINDY IS A CHAMPION!!

Yesterday afternoon, my Cindy ran the Annual "Lights of Hope" 5K and won, First Place for the Spirit Award for the best costume (she ran as Mary with Baby Jesus) and then...

She placed #2 in her age group.  BTW, she broke her record from last year by over 1 minute!  Yea Cindy, so proud of you!!

Cindy is not only beautiful and caring and faithful, she's a TROOPER!

We've traveled the world together bringing clean water and hope and the Good News of Jesus to the suffering and hurting.  I love my Cindy and am so PROUD of her!!

And today, we'll be back at the Hospital in Orlando, bringing the Good News of Jesus to those who are hurting.

So, it's time to get on with this beautiful and somewhat chilly day down here in Florida.  As always, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!

 TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART.....

In between "Missions" is where I find myself.  Have big piles of excellent supplies for Haiti and must sit patiently and wait for a part to come in.  Then, the Little Donkey can begin to "deliver the goods" to those who desperately need them. 

So....what do I do?  Go to God's Word and get His direction.  It's December 3rd, open the Book of Proverbs to Chapter 3 and what do I find..."TRUST IN THE LORD..."

Proverbs 3 has always been one of my favorite Proverbs.  Dear Lord, please direct my path!  If you haven't read it lately, here you go - PROVERBS 3 NKJV

Hopefully, that cable will come in today and we can get that Little Donkey back in the air.  As always, and I mean this with all of my heart, THANK YOU for your precious and invaluable prayer, love and support!!

CHOOSE WISDOM

Sometimes, when I sit before this old laptop to write a blog, I just don't know what to say.  That's the time to go to Lord and ask for Wisdom.  

Of course, to stay on course, the best place to find God's Wisdom is the Word of God and the Book of Proverbs is FULL of God's Wisdom!  

Just so happens that I often match the day with the Proverb.  Since Proverbs has 31 Chapters (one for every day), today I just read Proverbs 2.  WOW!

Folks, our Lord has all the Wisdom we will ever need for absolutely any situation in our lives.  All we have to do is ASK & OPEN THE BOOK!

Here you go, I'd like to drop a Pearl of Wisdom in your hand...just click here to read all 22 Verses of  Proverbs 2 - PROVERBS 2:1-22  

So, no matter what you might be facing today, things will go better for you if you gird yourself with Wisdom from God's Word.

There, you have my simple words of encouragement directly from God's Word today.

As always, and I mean this with all of my heart, THANK YOU for your invaluable prayer, love and support!!

MADE IN AMERICA.....TRENDING!

As a Small Business man, I love MANUFACTURING things in AMERICA!  As a matter of fact, the Air Mobile Rescuer is made entirely in America and we'll keep it that way.  

You see, it's extremely important to assure a reliable "Supply Chain".  We like to be able to lay our hands on all of the parts to keep CLEAN WATER flowing through good times and bad times.  Have you ever been "Cut-Off"??  

Yes, we PRAY that MADE IN AMERICA will grow and become a "Movement".  It's time for millions to go back to work.  There is a dignity and grace in working hard and being rewarded for it.

Now, I realize that the 1000 or so jobs that have been saved in Indiana (Carrier) may not seem like a lot, but if this does continue and we pray that it does, America will be a better place and this country will be able to reach and help others around the world as never before.

Again, I further realize that some people are upset about the Presidential Election, but the bottom line is...America needs to go back to work.  May MADE IN AMERICA TREND UPWARD!

In the meantime, we're working hard to get the Little Donkey ready to fly and bring vital supplies to Haiti.

As always, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!

IT'S BEGUN.....JOBS STAYING OR COMING HOME TO AMERICA!!

It was with great joy -  reading this NY Times story - TRUMP TO ANNOUNCE CARRIER WILL KEEP JOBS IN THE U.S.

Cindy and I are "Tent Makers".  That means that we have a Small Business to support our "Missionary Habit".  In other words, we don't draw a salary out of Air Mobile Ministries.  

We know from personal experience that EXCESSIVE TAXES KILL BUSINESS!  

We know that a lot of folks here in America are not happy that Donald Trump won the Presidency.  However, one thing is clear....TRUMP KNOWS BUSINESS!

I remember when Carrier made the announcement that they were moving their MANUFACTURING to Monterrey, Mexico that the Carrier workers groaned with shock & sadness.  Here's that clip - CARRIER ANNOUNCES MOVE TO MEXICO 

Trump called this out and promised to change it.  Well, he did.  THANK GOD!  May this trend continue.  Let's pray for Trump to lead this country with wisdom, grace and success!!  May God continue to BLESS AMERICA!

And remember a couple of weeks ago...Ford agreed to keep making Lincolns in Kentucky.  Let's PRAY that this pattern continues!!


LITTLE DONKEY UPDATE:  Sometimes, finding replacement parts for a 46 year old airplane can be a challenge.  

Paul, our mechanic is diligently searching for a replacement cable for the fuel transfer system.  Please pray he finds it soon.  It's time to get back to Haiti with vital supplies!

It's time to head out into this day and see what our Lord has in store for us.  As always, THANK YOU for our precious prayer, love and support!!

HAITI ELECTS A NEW PRESIDENT

In the midst of all of the U.S. Presidential news, Haiti quietly and" relatively" peacefully, pulled off an election.

The results, just in. indicate that Jovenel Moise, an Agro-Entrepreneur, won 55+% of the vote.  

A Run-off will not be necessary if....those results hold firm.  Here's more - HAITI: JOVENEL MOISE APPARENTLY WINS PRESIDENTIAL VOTE   

I would like to point out that Haiti accomplished this election in the midst of a major catastrophe, Hurricane Matthew.  I am proud of Haiti for doing this.

Now, I realize that the election will be investigated and some of the other Candidates will likely dispute the results, but just the fact that this election happened with very little violence, is an amazing thing.  Bravo Haiti!!

Today, we'll be working on the Little Donkey and sorting and picking up more supplies for Haiti.  

We're still believing God to provide us with some "Loaner" aircraft to help us get a good load of much needed supplies to Haiti.

Time to head out into this beautiful day that our Lord has made.  As always, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!

MONDAY MONDAY


We'll be working hard to get the Little Donkey back in the air for Haiti.  Have a large load of supplies for Haiti that has built up over the holidays.

On the way back from TN, one of the cables that change fuel from one tank to the other "snapped".  It was 46 years old and just "gave up the ghost".  Paul is replacing it today.

We're still believing God for someone with a plane or planes to come and help us clear out these wonderful supplies.  We have a lot of baby formula, food, re-hydration mix (for cholera), medicines, water purifiers and more.
  

Currently, it would take about 5 flights for the Little Donkey to carry in what we have in our hangar.  HELP!  

Again, if you know anyone that may be interested in donating (LOAN) the use of their aircraft to us, please let us know. My cell is:  321-544-7757.  

Well, it's time to head to the airport and help Paul get the Little Donkey ready to "gallop" to Haiti.  As always, THANK YOU for your invaluable prayer, love and support!!

POST THANKSGIVING....

We should always GIVE THANKS!  A THANKFUL heart is a strong heart that can endure the challenges of life.  

I need to remind myself of this daily.  It's easy to lose sight of the blessings that our Lord gives so richly....even when things are not going so good.

So, I'm going to continue to give THANKS to our Lord each and every day.  May this be your goal also.  Your days will go much better with a THANKFUL HEART!  

Cindy and I are THANKFUL for the Open Door given to us by the Hospital in Orlando. 

We're able to go, each and every Sunday and give the Good News to those "who are not having a good day".  It's such a BLESSING to be able to do this.

We're always looking for Volunteers to help us in this precious ministry.  We're now conducting 4 separate services each Sunday. 

We're  seeking those who want to share their testimony of how Jesus saved them.  This is often the most powerful message we can preach!

If you're interested in sharing your Testimony and helping to lead others to Christ, please call us at:  321-544-7757 or e-mail - airmobilejoe@gmail.com .

CASTRO DEAD!!

Woke up early.  Put on the coffee.  Took a little stroll in the cool of the morning before the sun rose.  Sat down with my coffee and brought up the "Drudge Report".

Seconds later, the headline flashed red and the the new Headline read:  "CASTRO DEAD".  Castro died at 10:29 PM Friday evening and the announcements have just been made.

I, so recall, the flights that we made into Cuba bringing in the Jesus Film * long before it was "legal" and many other missions there.  The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is ALIVE & WELL IN CUBA!

  To some, Castro was a "savior", to many, he was a brutal dictator who controlled every aspect of life in Cuba.  And, in spite of that "Iron Grip", the Church grew and many Cubans have come to know JESUS as their true LORD & SAVIOR! 

 There are many stories that I could tell about our ministry in Cuba.  But one stands out *.  

Through a breath-taking series of miracles and through Divine timing and the "blinding of eyes", we were able to bring in the Jesus Film, along with all of the "hardware" to show it to THOUSANDS, a clear ANTI-REVOLUTIONARY ACT! - (punishable by years in prison!!)

BTW, we brought in the Jesus Film, as the Berlin Wall was falling and Cuba was an "armed fortress" as Communism was collapsing around the world.  

Our Lord Jesus "Made a way (to bring the Good News of the Gospel) where there seemed to be no way"!

Even today, this "MIRACLE" is remembered by Church Leaders in Cuba.  The story is told in detail in our book, "Run to the Roar"

I do not know if Castro ever accepted Jesus as his Lord & Savior.  That is between him and God.  I pray that he did.

So, today, I THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!

THANKS-GIVEN & STEERING THROUGH "BLACK FRIDAY"


What a blessed day!  Something wonderful happens inside as we GIVE THANKS!  And, we have much for which to be thankful.

Many times, all we have to do is just take a few moments and look around.  The fact is....GOD IS GOOD....ALL THE TIME!  

He's often blessing us in so many ways and if we look for the ways, our eyes are opened to His goodness to us.  That's why Cindy and I are very blessed by THANKSGIVING!!

So, today, while going about our normal business, we have to deal with "BLACK FRIDAY"....a crazy day with crazy deals everywhere and crowds of eager folks to take advantage of the deals.

We'll just "steer" around the raucous crowds and make some good deals..."on-line" and avoid the crush and craziness.  Be safe and avoid "possible injury" by the crazy crowds.

FROM ORLANDO > NASHVILLE > GALLATIN > TITUSVILLE


Yesterday, flew from Orlando to Nashville, TN on Southwest Airlines.  

Was picked up by Chris Bell (Owen's son), and we drove to Gallatin where...a certain Little Donkey was "chomping at the bit" to fly to Florida.


After fueling the sweet little bird, I took off and climbed to 15,500'.  Oh, it was so good to be back in the cockpit! 


Now, this is a shot is of the instrument panel of the Little Donkey.  Any pilots reading this rambling blog will appreciate wonderful panel.

BTW, Garmin has donated nearly the entire panel to us.  THANK YOU, GARMIN!!


Owen and Chris did a full inspection and repair of the fuel tanks.  They also mounted a new mirror that allows the pilot to have a full view of the fuselage.  Nice to see it from the air.  

We're so THANKFUL to the Bell's who know more about the Cessna Skymaster than most anyone alive.  They made a number of repairs and improvements on the Little Donkey.


The route from Gallatin to Titusville, took me right over Downtown Atlanta.

Now, Hartsfield is the busiest airport in the world.  You can imagine flying through that airspace. 

The Air Traffic Controllers do such a good job of keeping all those aircraft separated and safe.


It was nice to look down on Downtown Atlanta doing 202+ MPH avoiding all that traffic on the ground.


In just over 3 hours, while descending over Florida for home, captured this nice shot of a sunset.  

Usually, I'm flying to Haiti in the early hours and capture the sunrise.  The sunrise and sunset look surprisingly similar but each is unique and beautiful.  Our Lord has made such a beautiful creation!! 

So, this long and wonderful day came to an end and it's good to have the Little Donkey home.

Now, Paul and I will be meeting and going over the list to knock out a few more things to get the Little Donkey ready for Haiti.

Hope you have a blessed THANKSGIVING tomorrow!!!

As always, THANK YOU for your precious love, prayer and love!!!

THE DAY KENNEDY WAS SHOT

Let us REMEMBER.  It's amazing that as the years pass, there is less and less recognition of this tragic day.  

I so recall exactly where I was when it happened.  I cried.

Here's a link giving the details of what happened on November 22, 1963 - JFK ASSASSINATION  

Well, I'm up early this morning.  Cindy has already dropped me at Orlando International Airport.  

Bound for Nashville to go pick up the Little Donkey!  Yea!!!!

I've missed that sweet little bird.  Owen Bell has completed the major inspection and repair on the fuel tanks.  


Yesterday was a glorious day for Lance and Melanie.  I had the privilege to officiate the "Tying of the Knot" for this lovely couple.  We pray for a blessed and sweet marriage.

HAITI VOTES / A LOT OF GRAND-KIDS / A SWEET CONFERENCE

Today, the People of Haiti will vote.  Still 1.4 million are in desperate need of assistance.  There is a question of the validity of the vote.  Still, the Haitians will attempt to vote today.  

Let us PRAY that this election is successful.  Here's more on this story - HAITI HOLDS LONG AWAITED VOTED STILL REELING FROM HURRICANE MATTHEW

Yesterday, we had a wonderful get-together with 7 of our 9 Grand-kids.  

What a fun day.  Yes, it's awesome watching kids play and all the little personalities and cute sayings.  Warms the heart!

Ended the day at the "Win Our Nations" (WON) Annual Missions conference.  It was an honor to be the key-note speaker.  

We LOVE Malcolm and Phyllis Blowes, the Directors of this great mission.

We have worked with them in India and look forward to working with them in Africa. These folks are the "REAL DEAL"!  Love you Guys!!

Today, we'll be back at the Orlando Hospital (University Behavioral Center) after service at our home church.  We so love ministering there.  

We're still looking for Volunteers  to help us with the 4 services that we conduct there every Sunday afternoon.

MSM MELTDOWN  

The "Main Stream Media" is in full disarray over the Election of Donald Trump.  It is so obvious that the historic win by the "Inexperienced Politician" came as a full shock.  Today, the MSM is "scrambling" for stories to criticize Trump.  

For example....the Trump Team isn't filling the offices fast enough, the picks are crazy, Trump got a Hamburger and didn't tell the media, Ivanka wore a diamond bracelet, etc. etc..  Holy Smoke, it seems that they are desperate for stories.

It is so obvious that the "Candidate of Choice...by the MSM" LOST!  

So, folks, brace yourself.  For the next 4 years we'll see the MSM "likely" oppose the new President on every issue, every decision, every turn.  

Our hope and prayer is that the MSM will seek out the TRUTH and give us REAL NEWS!!

 Remember, the TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE!!!

OK, enough "Politics" today.  Cindy, Ariana and I will be at the Annual Missions Conference for our good friends, Malcolm and Phyllis Blowes of Win Our Nations (WON).  I've been asked to be the Key Note Speaker.  Please PRAY for me to "Deliver the Mail".

As I say every single day and mean with all of my heart, THANK YOU for your invaluable prayer, love and support!!

RESCUERS TO THE RESCUE

Even though Cindy and I are in the U.S. and counting the days until Thanksgiving, Air Mobile Rescuers are still going out and saving lives.

We just sent 3 Rescuers to Ukraine.  These units have been funded by CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network) and coordinated by our good friend, Brian Scott.  God bless you, Brian and CBN!!  

Yesterday, we received funding for another Rescuer for Haiti.  It will be going to Les Cayes, the major staging area for relief into the Western tip of Haiti.

Even though Haiti, has long been out of the "News", the situation there is grim.  Cholera is a definite problem.  The danger of mass starvation is very real.  

Here's the latest "Situation Report"  HAITI - HURRICANE MATTHEW SITUATION REPORT NOVEMBER 16, 2016

This weekend, Cindy and I will be attending the Annual "Win Our Nations" (WON) missions Conference where I will be the Key-Note speaker.  This organization is founded and operated by Malcolm and Phyllis Blowes.  

We were blessed to donate 2 Air Mobile Rescuers to their mission in India last year.  We love these folks and count it a great blessing to speak at their Annual Conference!

Here's more about this wonderful ministry - WIN OUR NATIONS


The Little Donkey Update:  Spoke with Owen Bell last night and the Little Donkey is almost finished.  

I am so glad to have Owen and his son Chris working on the bird.  They know the Cessna 337 Skymaster like no one else.  God is good.  We'll go pick up The Little Donkey after Thanksgiving.


We're looking forward to a peaceful weekend and an enjoyable time with our family during this Thanksgiving Holiday.

Hope and pray that you have a blessed time with your family.  As always, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!

A LOVELY EVENING....THE DAY AFTER

Oh, we had a wonderful time last night.  The evening was kicked off by our daughter-in-law, Ann Marie.  She sings like an angel.  

She was followed by beautiful music and sweet fellowship.  We met many new friends and will cherish the memories from the evening.

We're still gathering vital supplies for Haiti.  We're believing God to provide us with "loaner" aircraft to help us carry literally thousands of pounds of supplies for those who so need it.

Now, after the concert, Cindy and I are looking forward to a few quiet days before we enter back into the fracas of saving lives and bringing hope and care to those who so need it.

Folks, THANK YOU again for your invaluable prayer, love and support!!!

IT'S TIME FOR A CONCERT!!

After this "fiery" election, there are many people who are Glad and plenty of folks who are Sad.  Time to take a breath and enjoy some good music.  That's exactly what we're going to do tonight.

In life....we win some and we lose some.  We've all tasted victory as well as defeat.  It's time for healing and grace in this great country. 

I distinctly recall 4 years ago.  Our candidate lost.  Yes, Cindy and I were devastated.  However, we got up the next morning and went to work....bringing folks clean water and hope and the Good News of Jesus.


For you see, no matter who wins on this earth, JESUS is still and will always be LORD!

So, with that truth, let us go forth, seize the moment and make the best of it.  We can ALL learn from this election.  And to the "winners", be gracious and understanding and to the "losers", be courageous and remember, there will be another election.  As my mother used to say....."Son, this too will pass".

Well, as we've been sharing for the last few weeks, this evening, we'll be having a lovely Concert. 

We'll be seeking help to bring life-saving relief to Haiti following devastating Hurricane Matthew.  These folks have lost EVERYTHING and many are at risk from starvation and disease.

May we put our differences aside and join hands to help others.  This is what our Lord would have us to do.  So, as I say every single day, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support.

A NEW WORLD...POLITIC

So many changes and surprises by this U.S. Election.  It is so obvious that a large number of voters, who were not expected to vote....DID!  It appears that the Christian electorate did wake up!!  

The MSM (Main Stream Media) is still shocked as well as nearly half of our country.  We PRAY for peace to prevail.

We PRAY for a peaceful transition of power.  This is a major foundation block to our country and one that we should never take for granted.

Despite the Protests that are taking place...and that is our right (as long as the law is not broken), we are PRAYING for those to be peaceful.

May I encourage each of you, regardless of what side you may be on to PRAY for Donald Trump.  This IS in our best interest.  I'd rather have a President that IS guided and directed by the Lord than one that is NOT!


We're continuing to receive donations of food, formula, medicine, etc. for Haiti.  While the Little Donkey has been up in Tennessee getting the fuel tanks repaired the gifts have been "piling up".

We need more airplanes to get all of these vital supplies in. Do you have any friends with airplanes willing to make some flights to Haiti?  
If so, PLEASE give them my cell phone number and have them call me ASAP.  We could really use some "Transport" help!  Here's my cell:  321-544-7757!

Here's an UPDATE on the Powerful Earthquake that rocked New Zealand.  We're continuing to follow this situation and are certainly PRAYING for those who have been devastated.  

Fortunately, the death toll has been very low and for that we're thankful - NEW ZEALAND EARTHQUAKE: RESCUE OF STRANDED TOURISTS PLANNED


Today, Cindy and I will be putting the finishing touches on our upcoming Benefit Concert that is taking place tomorrow evening between 5:00pm and 8:00pm.  

We're excited to meet our friends share all that our Lord is doing in Air Mobile.  Here are the details:

NEW ZEALAND RUMBLE

A series of powerful earthquakes have shaken New Zealand to the core.  There is massive destruction and  Tsunamis, but....the death toll is surprisingly (miraculously) low!  We are monitoring this unfolding situation very closely.  

PLEASE PRAY for those in the path of these on-going earthquakes in New Zealand! 

Here's what's happening - NEW ZEALAND ROCKED BY EARTHQUAKE / AFTERSHOCKS - HERE'S HOW THE FIRST DAY UNFOLDED 

Has the "Ring of Fire" awakened?  There was a 6.2 Earthquake in Argentina yesterday.  We're praying and preparing at Air Mobile to GO as the need arises.  Here's more on the Argentine quake - 6.2 QUAKE SHAKES NORTHWESTERN ARGENTINA  

Good News on the Little Donkey.  Received a call from Owen Bell (the "Master of the Skymaster").  He has solved the leaking fuel tank problem.  Hope to pick up the Little Donkey later this week.

So, as we move forward in this new week, we PRAY for wisdom and guidance.  And....as always, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!

WHO HATES WHO??

I would like to share a testimony.  Cindy and I have traveled the world following major catastrophic and on-going disasters.  

Our mission:  Bring help, clean water, food and share the love of God.  We do not see color or religion or gender.  We see hurting people.

We have been joined in this battle to save lives with Christians, non-Christians, and a lot of folks like you, praying for us and supporting us.  We could never do this without a lot of help.

Our role is NOT to JUDGE people.  For....ALL have sinned and come short of the Glory of God.  We're all a mess and need our Lord to save us by His GRACE!

So, as I see the PROTESTS in America regarding the election of Donald Trump and hear the accusations of those who supported him as being racists, judgemental, sexitst, homophobes, xeonophobes etc., my heart breaks and....

I reject the notion of those who stand and judge us for supposedly judging others!  BTW, Cindy and I did vote for Trump!!

Folks, this world is hurting.  There are disasters on-going and coming.  We need each other and we can be a BLESSING to one another.  Let's stop all this hatred and simply love one another!

There....I just had to get this off of my mind and heart.  People need the Lord and we can be an instrument of His love for this hurting world.

So, again, as I say every single day and mean with all of my heart, THANK YOU for your invaluable prayer, love and support!!!

22 YEARS AGO TODAY!!

Today, Cindy and I celebrate 22 years of sweet marriage.  I am so THANKFUL to have a wife that loves the Lord!  

We met and fell in love while working in Haiti.  Our love and our mission to the world, has only grown since the day we met.  Praise God!!

Often, when disaster hits, it is Cindy who is packing our bags and making the plans and encouraging us to GO to a hurting world.

I'm "blown away" by Cindy's love, courage, ingenuity and so much more.  GOD IS GOOD!! 

I can't begin to tell you how THANKFUL I am to the Lord for bringing this amazing Lady of God into my life!  And....the best is yet to come!!! 

Our lives are becoming more "streamlined" and we're able to do more than ever.  

In this life, disasters will come.  We're so blessed to be able to bring people clean water and food and above all, the GOOD NEWS of JESUS!!

We were blessed to receive a nice gift card to the "Melting Pot" (Thanks Pastor Lenny!!)  So...we're going on a date tonight.  

So, as I say every single day, THANK YOU for your precious and truly appreciated prayer, love and support!!

POWER TRANSFER & SALUTE TO OUR VETERANS!!

One of the greatest aspects of America is how POWER is transferred.  Yesterday was encouraging as we witnessed the President and the President-Elect meet and discuss how the "Transfer" would take place. 

We PRAY that this complicated process (transition & transfer) will take place peacefully and efficiently.  

And, today, America honors its Veterans!  Our Veterans are the backbone of our country.  Praise God for the men and women who have protected our freedom!  

Cindy and I remember her little brother, Tommy, a 19 year old Marine who gave his life in Beruit.  

Many of you have those who have served and some who have given the ultimate sacrifice for America.  May we honor them, not only today, but each and every day!!  

GOD BLESS AMERICA!! 

We also know that there are Americans who are unhappy with the results of this election.  There are riots taking place in cities across America.  

Our Freedom allows for this....as long as the protesters stay within the bounds of the law.  The Protesters do not have the "right" to destroy property or disrupt traffic or injure others.  Again, we PRAY  for peace to prevail.

So, today we'll be about our business while the American Government will prepare for this incredible transfer.  We pray that all goes well.  

As always, THANK YOU for your prayer, love and support!!

THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN!!

Take a look at this map.  It appears that Trump would have beaten Obama.  Folks, the American people have SPOKEN and they want CHANGE!! 

This is a very insightful and telling article explaining just how significant this election was.  It is going to be far reaching and shows the "end of an era" (hopefully) for America - THE MATH: TRUMP WOULD HAVE BEATEN OBAMA IN 2012!  

There is NO perfect Candidate (ALL have sinned and fall short  of the Glory of God).  Donald Trump is certainly no angel.  However, I do believe that his message and plan for America will better serve the American people.

I further believe that Christians (particularly the persecuted) around the world will be better served and PROTECTED!  Obama has, for the most part, thrown Christians around the world "Under the bus"!  

Again 'DO THE MATH'!!  6726 SYRIAN REFUGEES FOR FY 2016...ONLY 23 WERE CHRISTIAN

Again, this is a NEW DAY for America.  Our hope and prayer is that the new Administration will seize the opportunity and bring grace and peace and wisdom to America and the world!  Let us PRAY together for our Lord to have His way with us!!

Are you tired?  This election definitely took it out of Cindy and me.  This was truly an emotional roller coaster.  We're just taking it easy for a few days.

We're praying for America!  America needs healing!  So, as I say every single day and mean with all of my heart, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!

PRESIDENT TRUMP!!!  

PRAISE GOD!!  America is given a new and grand opportunity.  May we all come together and help to bring America to new levels of grace and strength to help the world to become a better place!!  GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

Folks, we witnessed, without question, the greatest upset in American Political History.  Donald Trump has NEVER run for political office until now.  We now have a President-Elect who has broken so many molds. 

Our hope and prayer is that Donald Trump will be sensitive to wise counsel and above all, that he seek wisdom and direction from our Lord!!!

Now is the time for America to come together and heal the deep wounds that exist between so many.  
"We owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country. Now it's time for America to bind the wounds of division," Trump told supporters.

Here is Trump's speech just after passing 270 - TRUMP ADDRESSES SUPPORTERS AFTER CLINTON CONCEDES

May the grace and peace of God rule and abound in America!!  May we indeed be the shining city on a hill!! May our Light shine even brighter!!!

TODAY IS THE DAY!!!

OK, I'll admit it....I do have some anxiety, but as the hours roll by, we'll know more of what direction our country will go.  WOW!  Let's PRAY!!

I, like many of you, are READY for this election to end.  Have NEVER been through an election like this one.  One thing is for sure.  It has driven me to my knees for our country!

This morning, the "Pundits" are talking and spinning, but the big news will come this evening.  We HOPE that the the winner is clear.  No more "hanging chads"!!

So, if you're an American and reading this blog, if you haven't voted yet, today is our day.  I encourage you to PRAY & VOTE!!!

REMEMBER:  YOU CAN'T VOTE TOMORROW!!!!!

1 DAY TO GO!!!

What's next???  The amazing FBI was able to process 650,000 recently found emails in an astounding 8 days!  WOW!  Have never seen or heard of such government efficiency!  No need to pursue this any further!

Folks, there is a lot of "smoke" here.  Is the system rigged?  The voters will speak tomorrow.  Cindy and I will vote tomorrow and above all, we're PRAYING like crazy.  

And if you're wondering which way we'll vote....we're voting for Donald Trump..   There is NO way that we could ever vote for Hillary.  Her stand on Abortion, Immigration, Economy, Taxes...TRUTH and the list goes on and on, gives us NO CHOICE, but to vote for Trump.

We truly have absolutely no idea which way this election will go.  The only way for Trump to win will be if a lot of "unidentified" (by Pollsters) voters come out and vote.  We PRAY that they do.  Otherwise....we'll have Hillary, and not just "more of the same", but if she has her way, our nation will be in big, big trouble.

Now, having said all of that, this Scripture comes to me.... It is very easy to be "anxious and nervous" about this election, but our Lord urges us to put our trust and faith in Him and let His PEACE rule and reign in our hearts.  I need that Scripture!!

So, we urge you to PRAY & VOTE & remember Philippians 4:6-7.

As always, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!

"FALL BACK" & 2 DAYS TO GO & YOU LOSE SOME

Got that extra hour this morning (did you set your clock back?).  A good cup of coffee helps and the "Political" news is roaring.  

Just 2 days to go!  Polls are TIGHTENING and it truly is a toss up.  Who will win???  WE PRAY!!

The good news is....it will soon be over!  Oh, sweet Jesus, never seen an election like this one.  Trump has overcome so many obstacles and is still standing.  Now, that is AMAZING!!

By Tuesday evening, we "may" know who will be the next President of the U.S.  Folks, looks like it's going to be very, very close!!

Cindy and I will be going to the Hospital after church this morning.  We're so THANKFUL to live in a country where we can FREELY go and share the Good News of Jesus.

Oh, my team lost last night.  It was an incredible defensive battle.  LSU held Alabama scoreless for 3 quarters.  In the end,  my Tigers just got "whupped".

TOO CLOSE TO CALL, BUT......

What a "Wild Ride"!  This election is a true roller coaster and yes, it's anybody's race.  However, the "Polls" are definitely "trending" toward Trump.

Years ago, our company, CSA had multiple contracts at Kennedy Space Center.  During that time, I "stumbled" on a major Security vulnerability.

For years, I gave "briefings" on how to avoid having critical Information compromised.  That is why Hillary is in so much trouble and it's ALL her own making!

Folks, if any of us would have been so reckless with so much of our Nation's Secure Information, we'd be in Leavenworth for many, many, many years!!!   Yes, Hillary, you DO have your own unique standard! 

In just 4 days, the U.S. will Vote.  Never has there been a more critical election (in my humble opinion).  Again, and with all of my heart, I urge you to PRAY for our Lord's will to be done!!

Enough "Politics" this morning.  I spoke with Owen Bell yesterday and it seems that there's just one of the 14 fuel tanks that's not sealing properly.  He's searching for the right solution to solve the matter.

As Election Day approaches, I CAN'T take the chance of not being home, in my voting district to cast my vote.  So....this evening, I'll be boarding a commercial flight back to Florida.  

Besides, on Saturday evening there will be a certain college football game....LSU & Alabama!  Peter and I WILL NOT miss it!  We'll meet at Dogs R Us for this wonderful match up!  

Now, I believe that this is the year that LSU will BEAT Alabama.  We'll see!

So, it's time to pack up the little Retreat Cabin and head to Knoxville to catch my flight home.  

As always, THANK YOU for your precious and greatly appreciated prayer, love and support!!!

"THERE & BACK AGAIN"

Yesterday began early.  Picked up Stan (Remote Area Medical) & Dave, the King Air 300 pilot.  We did a final inspection and blasted down the runway at Space Coast Regional airport, headed for Haiti.

On board the King Air...over 2000 pounds of vital supplies.  Barbara would be waiting for us when we arrived.

Stan, who is a great pilot, along with Dave, the Friend's Chief Pilot who loaned us the plane for the day, did a great job of flying this beautiful, and VERY FAST, bird.




In less than 3 hours, we landed at Port-au-Prince International.  In our descent, we hit 338 Knots (389 MPH!).

In the Little Donkey, this flight takes 5+ hours.  BTW, the fuel tank inspection should be completed soon.

Upon arrival in Haiti, Barb, right on schedule, was there to meet us.  It would be a quick turn around.

It was fun watching Stan and Barb visit on the ramp.  Here are two souls that have "laid it all down" to help others!!

What a great load and all delivered directly into Barb's hand for safe keeping and strategic distribution.  Literally THOUSANDS of Haitians will be helped by this shipment!!  

PRAISE GOD for a great team working together to help the suffering people of Haiti!!

We completed and presented all of our Documentation and fueled the King Air and in less than 2 hours, we were airborne heading for Fort Lauderdale, FL (KFXE) where we would clear customs.

We cleared quickly and fueled the King Air and made the final leg back to Knoxville, TN where this mission began on Tuesday afternoon.  WOW!

On the ride back to Knoxville, I took a moment and reflected on the day. Here's a short clip with my thoughts - 

Dropped Stan back at RAM Headquarters and drove back to the tranquil retreat cabin in the mountains of East Tennessee.  What a day!!  MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! 

So, here I am, sipping a delicious cup of coffee, looking out over the beautiful valley and thinking about how we, with so many helping us, delivered a life-saving load to Haiti....in a day!

Now, I await word on the Little Donkey and in the meantime, will enjoy the peace and quiet here at the cabin.

As always, THANK YOU for your invaluable prayer, love and support!  Together, in faith, we can accomplish so much.  God bless you!!!

A "GIFT OF LIFT" FROM A FRIEND

We have received a lot of food and supplies for Haiti.  We simply don't have enough "air power" to get it to Haiti.  

Then our friends at Remote Area Medical (RAM), headed by Stan Brock have offered to help us get much needed supplies there with...a King Air 300!

Yesterday, Stan and I, along the "Friend's" Pilot, Dave, loaded the beautiful and very FAST King Air and made the first leg of our journey to Haiti via Titusville. FL (KTIX).

The King Air 300 is not only very fast, as shown here doing 332 Knots (381 mph!!), but it can carry an amazing load quite far.  We had right at a Ton (2000 pounds!) on board.  WOW, what an airplane!  

We'll be carrying in vital supplies for Barb in the Village, with a lot of baby formula and other needed items.  

Among the supplies that we'll be carrying to Haiti, "Rehydration Mix".  This is vital in fighting and treating cholera.  We have over 1000 pounds of the wonderful mix!!



As is often the case, was sitting at the Retreat Cabin, enjoying a bit of rest and reflection when the call came and the opportunity arose to receive a major "Gift of a Lift" from a friend.

THANK GOD for so many who help us do what we do!  We're THANKFUL to our Lord for sending them.  

Yes, "Surely our Lord knows how to deploy His troops"....as a wise, old pastor told me one day many years ago.  Thank you, Brother Roy (Stockstill).

We'll see what the next few days hold and will hold tightly to the Hand of Jesus!  The "Adventure Continues!!"

You know, IF Anthony Weiner had NOT done that nasty texting, the laptop containing 650,000 emails may have NEVER been found.  

Mmmm, looks like the TRUTH may be coming out after all.  We'll see....but likely, AFTER the Election.  

This new trove of evidence could certainly not have been ignored.  FBI Director Comey was "Between a Rock and a Hard Place" on this one!

I'm sure that there will be more punches and counter-punches  between Hillary & Trump today and for the rest of the week.  This election is: "A desperate fight to the finish!!"

Meanwhile, we've been busy gathering more vital supplies for Haiti.  The Little Donkey should be finished by the end of this week.  

We're working closely with Stan Brock of Remote Area Medical (RAM) to find ways to get them to Haiti.  We sure do appreciate Stan & RAM and their heart to serve others who are suffering!!


BTW, Joe and Dick of RAM have already dropped nearly 60,000 meals to the hungry and desperate on the western tip of Haiti.  PRAISE GOD!!

So, again I say, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!!
