MISSION....POSSIBLE  


Many times, over the years, I've faced seemingly "IMPOSSIBLE" situations.  But, time and time again, our Lord has come through with MIRACLE after MIRACLE.  


Such is the case with my dear friend.  He needs a MIRACLE of healing and we're standing and believing our Lord for just that.  


WITH GOD.....ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!!  


THANK YOU for joining me in prayer. Again, I cannot give any more details at this time.  


I know that I say this every single day, but it is so true, THANK YOU for your precious and invaluable prayer, love and support!!!!!

FROM THE "ROTARY" TO THE CABIN....& AN URGENT REQUEST FOR PRAYER!!


It's always a joy to speak to "Rotarians".  We share the passion of bringing CLEAN WATER to thirsty people.  


After the good Rotary Meeting, I went home and received a phone call regarding a dear friend of mine. 


For now, for privacy, I'll not mention the name of my friend.


The message was...."He is not doing well and if you want to see him, you'd better come NOW! " 


Cindy helped me pack and within minutes of the phone call I was on the road for the Retreat Cabin in Tennessee.  


Had a good, safe journey and 700 miles and 12 hours later I arrived at the Cabin late last night.  This morning, I'll be driving to the hospital to be with my friend.  


Folks, I sincerely ask for your PRAYER for my friend.  He truly needs a miracle.  


With God, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!!


THANK YOU for your invaluable and precious prayer, love and support!!!!

ROTARY OPEN DOOR & CRACK DOWN IN CHINA  


This morning, I'll be speaking to the Rotary Club in Merritt Island, FL.  Love these folks!!  


Over the years, we've criss-crossed the world with Rotarians.  


It's always an honor and privilege to speak at their meetings.  I'll be sharing the wonder of the Air Mobile Rescuer.  


The Rotary is best known for eradicating polio around the globe and now....their goal is to bring CLEAN WATER to a thirsty world.  This is a noble mission!!!


On another note, not sure if you've been following what is happening in China regarding Christianity, but here is a revealing article on the situation there.  


CRACKDOWN ON CHRISTIANITY IN CHINA  


We're following this situation closely and above all, PRAYING!!!  


Well, it's time for that second cup of coffee and heading out the door for the 7:00am Rotary meeting.  


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

14 YEARS AGO.... 


Years ago, Ann Junker, a dear friend invited me to come speak to her Prayer Group.  The day before that meeting, we manufactured our first Air Mobile Rescuer.  


I requested that faithful Prayer Group join us in prayer for wisdom and direction.  


Now, 14 years later, we have placed over 1200 Rescuers in 47 countries following the worst disasters in modern history.  


THERE IS POWER IN PRAYER!!   


This morning, I'll be speaking to this wonderful Prayer Group again.  I'm excited to be with these precious Saints again!  


Yesterday, another dear friend and great Water Mule, Joe Prussel *, arranged a meeting with Jim Royston.  Jim is deeply involved in Aerospace and so much more! 


Jim is an amazing contact and offered his wisdom and insight as to how to get the Air Mobile Rescuer into more areas that desperately need clean water.


Yes, "Surely our Lord knows how to deploy His troops"!!  THANK YOU LORD!  


It's time for me to get on with this beautiful day that our Lord has made.  As always, THANK YOU for your invaluable prayer, love and support!!  


Air Mobile Joe  


Joe Prussel has joined Air Mobile on missions all over the world bringing clean water and the love of Jesus.  He is a GREAT WATER MULE!!  THANKS AGAIN, JOE!!

WHAT'S NEXT??  


This morning, will be having breakfast with a top, Aerospace Program Executive.  


We'll be discussing the Air Mobile Rescuer and how this amazing device can help the astronauts on-board the International Space Station (ISS).  




Also, how the Rescuer can possibly help on the Mars Mission, the Moon Base and now.... THE SPACE FORCE!! 






We also hope to be hearing from the Continental Motor Group on the final price &....the possible
DONATION
, for the replacement engine for the Little Donkey.  




At any rate, this is going to be a BUSY and BLESSED week.  We're keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith!!  




On another note, I've been PRAYING for our Lord to send RAIN to California!  Remember, with God, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!!  




It's time to head out to breakfast for this critical meeting on the "Rescuer in Space".  


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

SHARING GOD'S WORD & A "HOT / COOL" LAUNCH.... 


One of the absolute joys that Cindy and I have is going to the Hospital in Orlando and sharing our Faith in Jesus every Sunday.  


We've been blessed over these last 21 years seeing our Lord move in such wonderful ways.  God's Word does not return void!  


We have a great team of Volunteers who join us and share in this joy.  


Because of Confidentiality rules, we cannot share any details of these services.  In many ways, that's what makes it so sweet.  


We also have the privilege to go to our home Church, Redeemer, and worship our Lord in freedom.  We do not take this lightly and we're THANKFUL for it.  


I awoke at 3:31am this morning to a powerful rumbling and the house shaking.  It was a Heavy Lift Delta IV Rocket launch.  Destination:  THE SUN.  


This launch is, as the Scientists say, the "Hottest / Coolest" NASA Mission yet.  


Here's more:  NASA LAUNCHES HISTORIC PROBE TO "TOUCH THE SUN" 


Witnessing such historic launches is just one of the perks of living on the Space Coast.  


So, it's time to head to church and then to the Hospital. 


 God bless and THANK YOU, as always, for your precious prayer, love and support!!!

& HE WHO WATERS...WILL ALSO BE WATERED HIMSELF 


In reading PROVERBS 11:25 this morning, I thought of you.  


Together, we have been bringing CLEAN WATER to the thirsty around the world.  What a blessing and a privilege to do so!  


I have often said this, and it is so true..."where would we be without the help of our friends?"  


You have stood with us through so many trials and victories. 


Together, we've been able to bring over 1200 Rescuers in 47 countries!  Thousands upon thousands are drinking clean water as a result!! 


THANK YOU for standing with us and believing God for the replacement engine for the Little Donkey, a great tool to bring clean water to the thirsty RAPIDLY.   


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

IN PURSUIT....OF AN ENGINE


We're encouraged by those who are offering to help with the acquisition of an engine for the Little Donkey.  


We hope to hear back from Continental Motors very soon for a final price on this engine or.... perhaps an outright DONATION!! 


WE ARE PRAYING FOR FAVOR!!  PLEASE JOIN US!!!  


I was speaking with one of my neighbors, Roger Miller about this situation.  


Roger has traveled to Haiti with me in the past and done an award winning Documentary on our mission.  Roger is a great friend and is thinking of any of his friends who can help.  GO ROGER!!  


Our pursuit goes on to get the Little Donkey back in the air!!!  As I say every single day and mean with all of my heart, THANK YOU for your invaluable prayer, love and support!!  


BTW, yesterday I took a ride through the "Park" and just prayed about the "engine" situation.  Came across a little friend along the way.  Often times, it's good to get out in nature, clear your head and PRAY!

AN OLD FRIEND DROPS IN...


What a joy, being with my dear friend and brother in the Lord, Bill Duncklee.  


Bill has done some interesting modifications on this remarkable aircraft and came over to show me.  


But....the main reason came over was to PRAY with me about our need for a replacement engine on the Little Donkey, an aircraft that he knows EXTREMELY WELL!  It's always a blessing to see Bill!  


After our visit, Bill headed back to Vero Beach, his home.  I was able to "capture" this sweet, fast, extremely efficient bird as he roared by.  GO BILL!!  


I know that, BY FAITH, we'll receive all of the funding necessary to get the Little Donkey back into the air.  


So, on this beautiful day, we go forth, believing God for his direction and provision.  As always, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!!!

PRAY....WITHOUT CEASING  


One thing is for sure...none of us will likely be guilty of PRAYING TOO MUCH!  


The Bible tells us to PRAY & PRAY some more...without ceasing.  OK, Lord, I get the message.  


We need to get the Little Donkey back in the air and in order to do that, we need a good engine.  


PLEASE join me in PRAYER for our Lord to provide every single penny necessary to do that.  


We hope to hear back from Continental Motors soon with a firm price for an engine.  

Meanwhile, my good friend and brother in the Lord, Bill Duncklee will be coming by this morning in his Velocity, a great airplane!!  


He's been doing some work on the Velocity and wants me to join him on a test flight.  It'll be good to be back in the air!  


BTW, Bill donated the Little Donkey to Air Mobile Ministries right after the Haiti Earthquake in 2010.  THANK YOU, BILL!!  


 It's time to head to the airport to meet Bill.  As always, THANK YOU for your invaluable prayer, love and support!!!

"IN THE MEANTIME....."  


As I sit at my desk and write this blog, I realize that there are times to simply "wait on the Lord & PRAY"... and that is not easy for me.  


I'm reminded of the need to PRAY by S.D. Gordon in his book "Quiet Talks on Prayer".  Here is a quote that touches my life continually.... 


"PRAYER IS STRIKING THE WINNING BLOW...SERVICE IS GATHERING UP THE RESULTS"!  


As I sit here in Florida...."In between Missions" the need for PRAYER IS PARAMOUNT!  


Yes, we need a replacement engine for the Little Donkey.  


We're awaiting word on just what the cost will be from Continental Motors.  


We're also awaiting the funding to order this engine once we finalize the price.  


We do not have the money right now.  Here is the reason:  We have invested our reserve funds into parts and components for the Air Mobile Rescuer water purifier in preparation for the Hurricane Season.    


Recently, our great mechanic Paul, during a routine inspection on the Little Donkey, found metal in the oil filter.  


This made it mandatory to stop flying and replace the engine.  This happened a bit earlier than we expected.  Thus, our need for funding.  


I find myself PRAYING harder than ever.  Now, I am asking you to join together with us in PRAYER that all of the funding will come in soon, and that we might get the Little Donkey back in the air.  


There, I've bared my heart with you today.  So, as I say every single day and mean with all of my heart, THANK YOU for your precious and invaluable prayer, love and support!!!!

MONDAY "SWIRL"  


Between Dr. Appointments, e-mails, phone calls, earthquake analysis and much more, this Monday will be busy....like most Mondays.


We're holding tightly onto the hand of Jesus!!!


May this Monday be GREAT!!!  



As a result of our latest NASA meetings, we're finding ways to make the incredible Air Mobile Rescuer...even better.  Stay tuned!!  


And, regarding the Little Donkey, we're hoping to hear back from Continental Motors soon regarding a discount or even a full DONATION of the rear engine.  WE PRAY!!


We go forth today, in His Name believing for His guidance and provision!!  


THANK YOU for meandering down this road of "Life" with us.  We so appreciate your precious prayer, love and support!!!

FREE TO WORSHIP  


We're THANKFUL to be able to worship God with Freedom.  This is a privilege not shared by many around the world.  


Please pray for those who are persecuted for their faith in God.  


We're thankful to be able to share the Good News of Jesus in the hospital to the sick.  


Our Lord opened the door for us to do this over 20 years ago and it is a JOY to go and proclaim the Gospel.  


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

SECURITY IN WISDOM....


In reading Proverbs 4 this morning, my heart cries out for God's Wisdom in my life! 


Wisdom is the principle thing.... 


Solomon certainly recognized our need for God's Wisdom and writes so eloquently about it.


Oft times, life comes at us fast and decisions need to made quickly.  


We face these challenges regularly and...I'm so glad that our Lord loves to give us His Wisdom.  


As I sit here, "In-between Missions", awaiting the replacement engine for the Little Donkey and knowing that a disaster can be right around the corner, I seek our Lord's Wisdom, Guidance and Provision.  


So, on this beautiful Saturday morning, we go forth in His Name and enjoy His peace and rest. May you be blessed today and I urge you to seek His Wisdom for your life.  


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


Air Mobile Joe  


PS - I like to read the days' Proverb by linking the day of the month to the corresponding Proverb.  I'm glad that there are 31 chapters in Proverbs, one for each day of the month.  Try it....you'll like it!

THE JURY IS STILL OUT....


Spoke with Continental Motors yesterday and...no decision has been made, as of yet, regarding a discount or even an outright donation of an engine for the Little Donkey.  


Continental Motors, just like much of the General Aviation world has been to Oshkosh "AirVenture", the world's largest Annual Fly-In.  They've been extremely busy the last few weeks. 



Over the years, Continental has been very good to Air Mobile supporting the front engine on the Little Donkey.  


We are PRAYING for Grace & Favor regarding the possibility of a good discount or even a donation.  May God's will be done!!  


This morning, I read Proverbs 3, one of my all time favorite chapters in the Bible.  I like to read the corresponding Proverb to the day of the month.  


There is so much wisdom and grace found in Proverbs!!  I'd like to share Proverbs 3 with you.  


Take a few minutes and read it....you'll be glad you did!  PROVERBS 3 NKJV  


So, as we launch into this beautiful day, we go forth with God's favor and grace.  THANK YOU, as always, for your PRECIOUS prayer, love and support!!

A RIDE IN THE "PARK"  


Ari & I were out for a pleasant "Scooter" ride in the park when...we ran out of gas.  


These things happen...especially when you don't check quantity before departing and...the little yellow scooter doesn't have a gas gauge.  


Fortunately, Cindy was close by and brought us some gas in the golf cart.  Once re-fueled, we continued our pleasant ride in the park.  


It's nice to get out into the fresh air and just clear one's head.  


Between the need for a replacement engine for the Little Donkey and the possibility of the Air Mobile Rescuer flying in outer space and so many other issues, I find myself simply needing God's Wisdom to know how to navigate.  


In today's reading in Proverbs I came across this verse (Proverbs 2:4-5).


So, today, I'll be studying God's Word and searching for His Wisdom....as for Silver


Will also be going over the notes from the last NASA meeting.  So much to digest. 


I'm also resuming my study for the CFI (Certified Flight Instructor).  Am currently preparing for another Written Test on the "Fundamentals of Instruction".  It will be a day of study and searching.


THANK YOU for meandering down this road of "life" with me.   I truly appreciate your precious prayer, love and support!!!!

GREAT MEETING....WITH NASA


What a meeting!  Learned so much about what happens on the International Space Station (ISS) especially when things don't go "as planned".  


And CLEAN DRINKING WATER is a NON-NEGOTIABLE!!  


As you, who follow this "Rambling Blog" know, we've been working with NASA "for a while" on this project.  


As you can well imagine, there are a lot of variables and challenges, especially in dealing with "Zero G" (weightlessness).  


One of our goals is to get the Air Mobile Rescuer on-board a "Zero G" aircraft to see just what happens to the flow and UV / Ozone reaction when weightless.  


And....a wonderful potential "Spin-Off" is how NASA can help us make the Air Mobile Rescuer BETTER for service right here on Earth...as well as in Space!  I love that!!!   


This pursuit is a true WIN-WIN situation!!!  I'm especially THANKFUL to the amazing engineers and scientists who have already shared so much vital information with us for the success of this noble project.  


I'm reminded of the wise words of my first Pastor, Roy Stockstill.  When I, as a "Rookie Missionary", was facing some daunting challenges, he shared this magnificent truth.  


He said, "Son, don't forget, God knows how to deploy His troops".  Our Lord has surely given us some of the finest and most capable Engineers and Scientists in the world to make the incredible Air Mobile Rescuer even BETTER!!  


So, today, I'll be pouring over my notes and ideas from yesterday and seeking ways to make clean water even more efficiently.  


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