6-6-17  Tuesday 5:47 AM (Eastern U.S. Time)  - Titusville, FL  Air Mobile Home Base - Report submitted by:  Air Mobile Joe


While sitting at my desk, with the tranquil scene outside our "Florida Room", my mind often goes back to where we've just been.  

The peace and beauty surrounding me is comforting, but the memories are haunting.

The fact that I can get up and get a cool glass of clean water, or push the button and have a cup of delicious coffee is a blessing and I'm very THANKFUL.

However, knowing that there is something that we can do to bring the simple gift of clean water to a desperately thirsty child is ever with me.

What can I do today to bring that to pass?  That is where I simply ask our Lord to lead and guide me this day.

Last night, Stan Brock and I were talking late into the evening as to how we could get clean water to the sick and thirsty in Yemen.  Cholera is RAGING and millions are without access to clean water in that war ravaged country.  What can we do?

Traveling there is STRONGLY advised against due to the on-going violence.

Joe Prussel is no stranger to Air Mobile. We've been all over the world together.  He is, as we say, a PREMIER WATER MULE!

On numerous occasions, Joe has dropped everything and joined us on critical missions in some very "dicey" countries (Myanmar, Philippines, Haiti, Nepal...to name a few).

Over the weekend, we met at Cracker Barrel and discussed...South Sudan.  We will be returning....sometime in the near future. 

Can't begin to tell you how much we appreciate our Volunteers (AKA - "Water Mules").  Our Lord has given us the BEST!!


Meanwhile in neighboring Yemen, Cholera has raised it's ugly head.  There are 3000-5000 NEW cases DAILY!  Here's more - 3000-5000 NEW CASES OF CHOLERA...DAILY!

"Yemen is one of the worst places on earth...to be a child"!

The need for CLEAN WATER is urgent.  We are in prayer about reaching into Yemen....possibly from South Sudan.

So, on this Monday morning in America...it's time to "Get back to work"!

The "Jet-Lag" has slowly diminished and I'm back on a regular schedule.  Coffee makes it work!

As I say every single day, without exception, and mean with all of my heart, THANK YOU for your invaluable and precious prayer, love and support!!

What a DIFFERENCE.  When the Lord Jesus reached down and saved me...out of a very dark place, He put in my heart the desire to SAVE lives.

What just happened on London Bridge and Manchester and Manila and....the list goes on and on, is NOT inspired by a loving God.  

What kind of deception and blindness and cruelty is at play in the hearts of TERRORISTS! 

Let us PRAY for those innocent ones who have been brutally attacked.  Let us PRAY for those who have been so completely DECEIVED as to think and believe that such terrible acts are pleasing to GOD. 

So, on this Sunday morning, as we prepare for Church, we go forth in His Name to bring life and joy and hope through the GOOD NEWS of JESUS!

THANK YOU again for your faithful prayer, love and support!!

Cindy made me scratch pancakes with a little Andouille sausage.  Mmmmm.  Oh, how I've missed my Baby's home cooking!

Now, when I fell in love with Cindy, I knew that she was  an amazing and beautiful "Lady of God", but.... she's an awesome cook to boot.  I am a BLESSED MAN!!

Then, for dessert, hot Blueberry Muffins!  Now, that's living and just enjoying life.

Didn't have anything on my schedule for the day, except eating, sleeping and chilling!

Spent some quiet time just gazing out of our back window.  We love orchids.  Here's a lovely shot of an "Orchid Crane".

Then, a few minutes later, the "Orchid Crane" flew away and "Mr. Orchid Gator" glided in...looking for another gator.  Love the "Nature Show" out of our back window.

Just a few days ago, our team was in South Sudan bringing clean water to thirsty, sick and desperate people.

It does seem as if I'm on a different planet.  There is a time to just chill, reflect and refuel.

I praise God for this precious opportunity.

OK, I will admit to responding to a number of e-mails from South Sudan.

Yes, we are already planning our next mission.  Not sure where it will be or when it will be, but there will be, with our Lord's help, the "Next Mission".  For now, just rest.

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

Our journey home began on Tuesday....I walked across the threshold of our home at midnight on Thursday (last night).  South Sudan is far from Titusville, FL!

However, the images and suffering and danger of South Sudan are still very much with me.

The question is....."When will we go back??"

I can't give you a date.  I will say, by faith, we will go back to South Sudan....sooner than later!

We WILL, with the help of our Lord Jesus, bring clean water to the thirsty and dying!  This is what HE told us to do!  Matthew 25:35-46

The situation there is...spinning out of control.  

I could say a lot here, but will only share one story from yesterday telling of the insane brutality and cruelty that so many innocent ones are facing....

It was so good to see my precious Cindy.  And yes, I'm so glad to be home.  I took a nice, long shower and my bed has never been more comfortable.  We have so much for which to be THANKFUL!

Will spend a bit of time "Re-fueling" and just "resting" and letting the 7 hour time difference (jet lag) slowly work out of my system.

Can't THANK YOU enough for joining together with us on this journey.  Your prayer, love and support are vital to this mission!!

6-1-17  Thursday 6:51 AM (Brussels Time)  - Brussels, Belgium Air Mobile "On the Move" - Report submitted by:  Air Mobile Joe


(NOTE:  If this blog sounds a little more dis-jointed and rambling than usual, it is.  I'm exhausted mentally and emotionally.  Bear with me...thanks!)

After a good nights sleep yesterday in Entebbe, Uganda, had a great meeting with Henry, a friend and Florida Business Man,  
We've been talking about possibly manufacturing the Air Mobile Rescuer in Uganda for some time.

Well, we met in Entebbe and more foundation is being laid to get the Rescuer closer and closer to ground zero of the Cholera outbreak in South Sudan.

Then....had the rest of the day to nap, read (the Word) and just chill out.  For tonight.....would be very long and we'd travel very far.  

Aaron and I boarded a flight in Entebbe for Brussels, nearly 8 hours in the air.  It was good to be on-board and really heading home!

Actually managed to get some sleep.  Upon landing in Brussels, we walked through the beautiful terminal.  I kept looking at the "sparkling floor".  Here's a little glimpse.

Now, I only took that little clip to contrast where we just were in Juba.  Here is a quick clip of the inside of the Juba "Terminal".  Oh Folks, South Sudan truly needs our prayers and love!!

Stepping off the plane in Brussels, was truly like stepping onto a different planet.  My heart breaks for those that suffering so and facing death in South Sudan.  We must do more!!

Well, on the ground here in Brussels for just a few hours. Dr.  Aaron will be visiting family in Poland, so I'll be on the next leg of our journey, another 8 hours in the air alone.  It's been great having Aaron with me.  He's a true trooper!!

Time to go find a cup of coffee and try to let my body adjust out of Africa time onto East Coast time.  

What an awesome mission we've just been on.  As I say every single day and mean with all of my heart, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!

5-31-17  Wednesday 6:51 AM (Uganda Time)  - Entebbe, Uganda,  Air Mobile "On the Move" - Report submitted by:  Air Mobile Joe


On our way to the Juba Airport, we made a strategic stop at the Juba Teaching Hospital.  Several days ago, we donated an Air Mobile Rescuer to this hospital (that was woefully short on supplies and clean water).

After careful study, we concluded that this hospital needed a second Rescuer.  It was a great joy to deliver the second unit to Dr. Isaac Wel.  

They will now have the ability to do more "remote" Cholera treatment with this second unit!

We do look forward to doing much more work with Dr. Wel and the Juba Teaching Hospital. 

BTW, this is the largest hospital in South Sudan and we praise God for the wonderful relationship we are establishing with them!!

From the Hospital, we aimed to the Juba Airport.  The "Main Terminal" is a series of tents.

The flooring was a bit challenging in the "Outgoing Terminal". 

Filming is quite limited in and around the airport.  There are no signs "Forbidding Photos".  It is an unspoken rule.  I did manage to shoot just a bit describing the area.

While awaiting our flight to Entebbe, Aaron discovered a harmonica that Lara (Aaron's wife) had slipped into his backpack.  

In the "waiting room", there was a little girl in a pretty dress.

Aaron demonstrated what happens when you blew on the harmonica.
It was obvious that she had never seen one before.  She was fascinated. 

Soon, she held in her hand, this wonderful little "music device".  She was thrilled!  She strolled through the area playing the harmonica.

Then, came the moment....the CALL for Ethiopian Air, the flight we would take to Entebbe, Uganda.

A bit of bedlam and then the walk to the Dash-8.

I managed to capture the moments just after boarding.

Can't begin to describe the emotions.  Was THRILLED to be leaving South Sudan and at the same time....I knew, with God's help and grace, I'd be back.

Here's our Take-off.....Ahhhhh!

The flight between Juba and Entebbe was just over an hour.  Upon landing, I captured Aaron coming off the plane.


Being in Entebbe was like stepping onto a different planet.  The terminal was orderly and peaceful.  

We soon checked into a nearby hotel and have a full 24 hours to rest and reflect.  

Surely, our Lord has done wonderful things.  Many doors are now OPEN in South Sudan to help save lives and share the love of God!!

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

5-30-17  Tuesday 6:57 AM (South Sudan Time)  - Somewhere in South Sudan,  Air Mobile "On the Move" - Report submitted by:  Air Mobile Joe


Began the day with a key meeting with the Director of Aviation for the World Food Program.  

Franklyn provided us with critical information regarding the logistics, challenges and operations of the 33 aircraft fleet that bring vital food to starving people in South Sudan.  

We were able to demonstrate the Air Mobile Rescuer.  He loved it!

Franklyn asked that when we return, he and I deploy a couple of Rescuers in desperate regions with his Church.  Praise God!

We then left the Aviation Department and presented the Rescuer to "Advance Teams" that go out to "Ground Zero". 

They can provide clean water to the refugees as well as the Advance Teams themselves.  They won't need to carry their own water, saving money and increasing their ability to stay longer!!  

It was a joy to present an Air Mobile Rescuer to the Director of these key Advance team members.  They can reach into to the hardest hit areas, whereas an American would have difficulty getting there.

Our next stop was Mercy Corps. This organization has been in operation in South Sudan for many years.  We met the Executive Director, Dr. Deepmala Mahla.

After she saw the Rescuer, her words were...."This is a Game Changer"!  

Mercy Corp is at the many "Ground Zeros" where Cholera has broken out.  What a joy to present an Air Mobile Rescuer to this fine organization!!

We departed Mercy Corp for Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF).  This great organization (I know MAF very well!!) is flying into many of these very hard to reach zones.   

We met with Elger who pointed out on the map both "Hot Zones" and strips where MAF lands.  Invaluable information!!

What a day!!

Today, we'll be wrapping up some meetings and preparing to end our mission here to South Sudan.

We have learned so much and a great FOUNDATION has been laid on which to build here in this country that has known so much suffering!!!

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

Today is Memorial Day in America and as an American, I remember.  

Even though I'm thousands of miles away from home, I'm so thankful for America and for those who have sacrificed to give us our great country.

Yesterday, we had the privilege to "equip" those who can go to "Ground Zero" of the cholera outbreak here in South Sudan.

Began with Dr. Isaac, the former Minister of Health in the Wau region of South Sudan.  

He and his associate Dr. Edward came to our base and were trained on the operation of the Air Mobile Rescuer.

As we met and discussed the terrible situation in South Sudan, Dr. Isaac, a noted surgeon and compassionate gentleman, explained the challenges facing this country.

It was our joy to present an Air Mobile Rescuer to this very capable Doctor and his associate, Dr. Edward.  They will use this precious tool to save many lives.  Praise God!

Next, we met with Lillian Okwirry, the WASH (Water and Sanitation) Director and is responsible for getting clean water to millions in South Sudan.

She was joined by her two top Water Engineers.  We completed our training from our earlier meeting.

This is an amazing contact and relationship as it will provide the "Pipeline" for clean water throughout South Sudan!

I can't begin to tell you how exciting it is to work with such capable people!  

"Surely our Lord knows how to deploy His troops"!!!  

At the end of our meetings, we had the rest of the afternoon and evening off.  Dr. Arron, Ron and I simply napped and watched BBC and let the whirlwind of events of this last week just sink in.  It was good to relax.

Today, we begin with another series of meetings and....it's time to get ready.  As always, and I mean this will all of my heart, THANK YOU for your precious and invaluable prayer, love and support.  So glad to have "On-Board" with us!!

PS - Several days ago, we met this gentleman with Norwegian Rescue Council, another NGO (Non Government Organization) operating in South Sudan.  There are a number of very tall folks here!


5-28-17  Sunday 7:47 AM (South Sudan Time)  - Somewhere in South Sudan,  Air Mobile "On the Move" - Report submitted by:  Air Mobile Joe


Many times, in cases like South Sudan, it's difficult to actually get the clean water flowing.  Yesterday, we did just that!

Our RAM Air Mobile Team launched out into the city of Juba aiming for the largest hospital in the country, the Juba Teaching Hospital.

This is the location of the Cholera Treatment Center for Juba.  We found our way there and began our investigation of the need for clean water.

We met the Hospital Administrator, Dr. Isaac Wel, an orthopedic surgeon.  He was thrilled with the Air Mobile Rescuer and expressed his deep need for this wonderful tool!

And...it just so happened that a prominent Member of Parliament, Mr. Williams was present.  Perfect timing!

We trained the technical team for the Hospital on the operation of the Rescuer.  They were GREAT students and quickly grasped the Rescuer.

Then came the "Moment of Truth".  Would I drink the water from the bucket of dirty water...after passing through the Rescuer?  YES!

Then, Dr. Isaac Wel took the next drink.  The water was delicious and all were instantly convinced that the Rescuer was an answer to prayer!!

It is always such a joy to present an Air Mobile Rescuer where it is so needed!

The Juba Teaching Hospital reaches into all areas of South Sudan and this gift will equip them with the tools to bring life!

Our day was just beginning!!  From the Hospital, we visited the Juba Orphanage home.  We were able to bring some precious dresses for the little girls.

The Administrators were out when we visited and we're awaiting a call from them to properly evaluate the need for a Rescuer.

We then visited Confident Children's Orphanage.  We met Kathy the Founder and Director.  We first passed out more little dresses for little girls.  Oh, THE JOY!

Many of the children in the orphanage are "War Orphans".  Kathy is an amazing Sister in the Lord!!

The little girls were just thrilled with their pretty new dresses.

Then, we dealt with the water issues that the Orphanage was facing.  Getting CLEAN WATER was a major problem!

We quickly agreed to donate a Rescuer.  We then trained the staff on the operation.

Then, came the moment of truth....Joe, the American, drinking water from that dirty rain barrel....after it passed through the Rescuer.

ALL were convinced that the Rescuer really works!!!

PRAISE GOD!  What a joy to present the Rescuer to the Confident Children's Home!

What a wonderful day!!  We returned to our base tired, but extremely satisfied at how our Lord used us this day.

Again, I can't THANK YOU enough for your precious prayer, love and support!!

Today....there's more to come!!  God bless!!

The need to be discreet (certainly about taking photos) and knowledgeable about where to go and where NOT to go, is essential...to staying out of jail & alive.

In our "moving" about Juba on various meetings, we crossed the Nile River.  Had to keep the camera low and not let any military / police see us filming.  Here's the crossing.

Our Driver knew where we could get a better view of the famous Nile.  This river has brought life to many, and now, with the outbreak of Cholera, it is a major "transmission line" for deadly cholera. 

We had certain business to attend to, specifically getting Ron's Passport certified.  Upon arrival in Juba, he had gotten a little stamp requiring his reporting to Immigration after 72 hours.  

Had he not met that requirement, a lot of trouble could be had at departure.  We spent hours  awaiting that little stamp in Ron's Passport.

While waiting, Aaron made good use of the time by sharing little gifts.

A simple Frisbee brought great joy.  The young man in the orange t-shirt picked up on how to throw and catch a Frisbee very quickly.

You may recall, we "Packed" the Air Mobile Rescuer water purifiers with baby / children clothes.  

Aaron had the joy of passing out the clothes, shoes, toys, candy and so forth.

Juba has become a huge magnet for refugees.  They are everywhere!  Life is hard and getting more difficult by the day.

Runaway inflation, unemployment, disease and war.....the suffering is staggering.  So glad that we could bring just a little help, while awaiting that stamp in Ron's Passport.

In addition to knowing how to "Navigate" in a war torn country, "Communications" are essential.  

Had to buy a South Sudan Sim Card to put in a little phone to enable us to easily communicate, especially with our driver.

Yesterday evening, we were the guests of Taylor Garrett of USAID - DART for a Shish Kabob dinner at the U.S. Embassy Residence Compound.

We were able to sit down with Taylor, over a pleasant dinner and gain so much knowledge about South Sudan.

Today, we will be out and about, following up on our good leads from previous meetings.  Can't give any details about our moving about.  As always, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!!!

5-26-17  Friday 7:37 AM (South Sudan Time)  - Somewhere in South Sudan,  Air Mobile "On the Move" - Report submitted by:  Air Mobile Joe


Our RAM AIR MOBILE RELIEF Team spent the day training new Rescuer Operators and gathering more information about the dreadful Cholera outbreak.

My first "Trainee" for the day was Captain Ron.  We set up the first Air Mobile Rescuer to operate in South Sudan.  We filled our own water bottles.  Ron loved the simple set up and operation.

Our next trainees were from the UNICEF, who provide clean water throughout South Sudan.

The trainees were very sharp and eager to learn and equally eager to get clean water into the most "hard to reach" areas!

To get to these areas is difficult at best, but a South Sudanese can get there much easier than an American!

I don't want to go into great detail, but having done research and many inquiries, it looks like it's going to be nearly impossible for our team to get into those areas.

Many of the remote Cholera Treatment Centers (CTC)...have  NO CLEAN WATER!  The Air Mobile Rescuers can provide the perfect solution!

It was a JOY to provide 2 Air Mobile Rescuers to this group!  Soon clean water will be flowing where folks are dying.

BTW, Lillian, the WASH (Water and Sanitation) Officer is a PRAYING lady.  Before the presentation of the Rescuers, we all joined together and PRAYED asking our Lord for favor and direction.

Our next stop was the WORLD FOOD PROGRAM (WFP).  I've had the privilege to work with these folks around the world and they are, in my humble opinion, the BEST at getting food to hungry people!

Our Point of Contact (POC), Ross Smith, showed us where the true "hot spots" are located.  Hunger and severe malnutrition as well as Cholera are ravaging areas along the White Nile River.

We were able to show the Air Mobile Rescuer and Ross identified numerous areas where this could be a vital tool.  Praise God for quality information.

Ross also pointed out the tremendous difficulties of getting to the many desperate areas of South Sudan.

We'll be getting more information from the Aviation Department of the WFP who fly multiple aircraft throughout the region.  

Again quality information is vital to the safety and success of our mission!!

It was a long and productive day.  We have more meetings today and will continue to seek His direction for this day!!

As always, THANK YOU for you vital prayer, love and support!!!

Our RAM AIR MOBILE RELIEF Team met at the US Embassy yesterday with the Lead for the USAID-DART, Taylor Garrett.  What a GREAT meeting!

Our main focus was identifying just where Cholera is breaking out and how we can get there to bring them clean water!!

I must say, our contact in the Embassy, Taylor is incredible!  

After seeing the Air Mobile Rescuer and it's capability, he has connected us with organizations that are on the "Front Lines" fighting this brutal battle...cholera!

We then returned to our "Base Camp" to a flurry of e-mails from the organizations that we are to meet.  Firm appointments have been set.  Praise God for OPEN DOORS!!

Good information is critical to success and safety!!  

Soon, we will "Launch" and deploy life-saving water purifiers to those who so desperately need it.  

We'll be in critical meetings today.  Again, we're so THANKFUL for your precious and invaluable prayer, love and support!!!

Aaron and I landed in South Sudan to utter chaos.

We walked across the ramp from the Ethiopian Dash-8 aircraft through a temporary tent on broken plywood floor with mud tracks everywhere.

Our Visas were in order and stamped. The first hurdle was jumped.  

Next came the "gauntlet" of clearing our 6 large tubs filled with precious water purifiers.

Our 3rd team member, Captain Ron showed up.  He'd landed several hours before.  It was good to see Ron, who has flown into this madhouse before.

Approximately 15 young men converged on us, grabbing our phones and yelling their "offers" to help get our "tubs".  Total confusion followed.

BTW, you can see the tubs with the orange straps in the bottom of this shot.

The truth was, we needed help carrying 6 - 70 pound tubs, along with our carry-ons (total: over 500+ pounds.

I relented and soon, our tubs were in a swirl of grabbing hands and being slung through the crowds.

Then came the "Plain Clothes Police" who demanded I stop filming,  My phone was grabbed, the tubs kept going and I had to defend my phone and try to explain that I was simply documenting the arrival of the water purifiers for our donors.  

He was not satisfied and demanded that I delete certain photos, especially the ones showing his face.  It was a very tense moment. 

Finally, we cleared security "perimeter"....or so I thought.  We were then met by another mob of "Plain-Clothes Security Officers" and the phone grabbed once more.  This was getting ridiculous.

Here we are bringing in a "lot of clean water" and every step is threatened....WELCOME TO JUBA!

Here's a little "Interview" that I conducted with Aaron and Ron - LIVE INTERVIEW FROM JUBA

As we drove, we all offered a sincere PRAYER OF THANKS for a safe arrival!!

I'm trying to retrieve a couple of videos, but it is very slow going with the internet connection. Will post later.

We did arrive at our base staging area (non-disclosed location).  Once behind the heavily armed security gate, our Mission to South Sudan has reached the next level.  We've arrived safely with our 10 Air Mobile Rescuers undamaged and ready to GO!

Inside the "Gate" there is calm and order.  We have a comfortable room, a nice cafe' and even have a swimming pool.

After days of hard traveling and the chaos at the airport, we all collapse into a very good nights sleep.

Up early, have my coffee and document the arrival.  Good to be in South Sudan.  We have critical meetings today, but not giving any details of where and when we're going.  

As always, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support.  We NEED them as never before.  God bless!!

PS - Prior to our departure from Entebbe, Uganda, we had a wonderful meeting with AirServ.  This organization flies excellent aircraft in the very regions that we may be deployed.  

They also have a first class maintenance facility, a very valuable thing to us in the future.  God is good and yes, "He certainly knows how to deploy His troops"!!

We arrived in Uganda last night.  Perfect flight.  The Government Officials treated us kindly and all 10 Rescuers cleared customs with no problem.

It took us 32+ hours to get this far...and we still have a ways to go.

Aaron and I slept like "logs".  Up early this morning.  Just had my coffee and a lovely breakfast.  Love the view!

Here's a little clip to capture the setting....

We'll be in meetings this morning with a local Mission Aviation organization and will be discussing the logistics of getting those 10 Air Mobile Rescuers where they are most needed.

Later this afternoon, we'll fly to South Sudan to continue our journey to bring clean water to the dying.  This is a NOBLE MISSION!!

Time to get on with this day.  The journey (and the Adventure) continues.  God bless you and THANK YOU again for your precious prayer, love and support!!!

I was told by UPS..."You can't get your passports until Monday morning".  

Well, with God, ALL things are possible!

BTW, there are 2 Passports (mine and Dr. Aaron's) that are missing and....our flight is scheduled to depart this afternoon!!!!

After nearly 4 hours on the phone and speaking with Manager after Manager, I'm about to leave for a 300 mile road trip to "RETRIEVE" those "mis-directed" passports.  

I don't have them in hand YET, but hope (and PRAY) that I will in the next 3 hours.  Then.... later this afternoon....we board a jet for Africa!  What a BATTLE this has been!

STAY TUNED!  When the passports are IN HAND, I'll update this blog and let you know.


Time to hit the road and go get those Passports!!

Tomorrow, our small team leaves for Africa.  There are many details that I will not share for Security Reasons.  I will, however, communicate each day with progress reports and special prayer requests, etc.

While sitting and typing this "rambling blog", I'm awaiting the UPS Delivery van to pull up with our passports! 

And, just moments ago, I tracked the passports and found out that there has been a GLITCH!!

It appears that the "Saturday Delivery" was not activated and the delivery time is MONDAY!  We will miss our flights and the whole itinerary will collapse.

So....I'm on the phone with UPS at this time and will do whatever it takes to go find those passports.  As you read this, now rather anxious blog, PLEASE PRAY that those passports are found.

Have to go for now.  I'm glad you're with us with your vital prayer, love and support!!!

Overnight, I received my Visa Approval to travel to Uganda but....my Passport / Visa from the South Sudan Embassy in Washington, DC has yet to be shipped.  

This is getting very, very close, as we depart on Sunday.  PLEASE PRAY that the precious passport is shipped today with a Saturday delivery!

In the meantime, we're packing the "tubs" with Air Mobile Rescuers.  We continue to move forward in faith!

We still have "unfunded" Rescuers, so please join together with us in prayer that all funding will be met by departure time.  We have every confidence (in Jesus) that every need will be met!

Time to go the International Airport and speak with the Station Manager about our special load for South Sudan.  We'll be asking the airline to "waive" any added fees.  God is good!!

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

My head is in a swirl as I try to "follow" the political fireworks at home here in the U.S.  Well said, Groucho!! 

The best we can do is PRAY for our leaders and pray that wisdom and sanity prevail.

Meanwhile, our South Sudan Visas have been APPROVED!  

Now, I wait with bated breath and the UPS tracking number, for my beloved Passport to arrive back in my hands.

Had been having a "Communication" problem with Uganda, but PRAISE GOD, looks like that may have been resolved overnight.  The Lord is good!

Today, we'll be putting the final touches on 10 Air Mobile Rescuers.  We currently have 5 funded.  PLEASE pray with us that the balance of 5 are funded by departure on Sunday!  

With God, ALL things are possible!!

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

Thanks to the wonder of "Tracking", my passport did arrive safely at the South Sudan Embassy in Washington, DC.  So relieved!

If all goes well, and the paperwork is in order (I pray it is), then a shiny new Visa will be put into my faithful companion & door opener (my passport). 

Then, it'll wing back to my eagerly awaiting hands.  Of course, I'll track it all the way home.

I suppose one does not realize just how attached one can become to a little blue book called a passport.

Yesterday, I took the Little Donkey up to 14,000' and not a single miss from the front engine.  Paul did a great job!

Upon landing, was met with a group of ladies lead by Mary Ann.  They make little dresses for orphans around the world!

It just so happens that soon, Air Mobile will be heading to South Sudan.  We'll have 10 Air Mobile Rescuers and they need to be "packed" with cushioning.  

Mmmm, those little dresses will help keep those Rescuers from getting banged up.  I love our Lord's timing.  THANK YOU, Mary Ann and helpers!!

Time to head out and see what this day holds.  I'll be tracking that passport!!  THANKS, as always for your faithful prayer, love and support!!

After all these years, this is the first time that I've been without my passport.  Of course, it will only be gone for about 48 hours (if all goes well). 

I must admit, it was difficult to put that Passport into an envelope and watch it leave.  NO International Pilot likes to be WITHOUT their passport!!   

Had to send it to the South Sudan Embassy in Washington, DC to receive the Visa allowing travel to South Sudan.

I've been tracking it since early this morning.  It's now somewhere between Maryland and DC on a delivery truck.  

I pray it not only arrives, but all of the documents enclosed will satisfy the requirements of the South Sudan Embassy.

Meanwhile, we need another Visa for Uganda for this Journey.  We're running into a few snags on that one, but hope to get it all resolved by our departure time.  Again, this is a very complicated mission with many, many details.

BTW, Paul and I are making good progress on the "High Altitude" miss on the Little Donkey.  Hope to take it up again today and climb to 15,000' and see just how well that front engine runs.  

Looks like Haiti will have to wait until we return from Africa.  Such is life. 

Time to get on with this day.  Have a lot to do.  THANK YOU again for your precious prayer, love and support!!

I had a very tight window to make a flight to Haiti. Yesterday morning was up early & headed to the airport.

The Little Donkey was all ready to go, fueled and loaded.  Yes, those are diapers stuffed in so tight.  The cabin of the little airplane is like a solid cube.

Did a final pre-flight, had a word of prayer and fired up the engines & took off for Haiti.

Captured another Glorious Caribbean sunrise.  Never get tired of those.  Each is so stunning, unique and beautiful.

Then...while passing through 12,000 the front engine began to miss.  Tried to smooth it out, but with no success.  Had to turn back.

While descending back to our home base, I sent a text to Paul (yes, you can Text & Fly thanks to a good auto pilot).

Shortly after landing, Paul arrived and began the process of finding the "mysterious miss".  

On Saturday, we had done a test flight prior to my flying to Haiti and the miss did not show up at low altitude.  Such is the nature of flying.  It's just a machine that is subject to problems.  We overcome them.

Cindy and I had celebrated Mother's Day on Saturday, since I was flying to Haiti (very tight schedule with Africa looming).  

Well, since I was on the ground, I joined Cindy, Angelica, Ariana and Peter for a lovely Mother's Day Dinner.

"All things work together for the good...".  

We'll be continuing to find that "Mysterious Miss" in the Little Donkey.  Probably a plugged injector or a fouled plug.

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

I'm so THANKFUL that we honor our Mothers and Wives!  Without question, our Lord has given me a Proverbs 31 Lady of God!!

Folks, time and again, when disaster hits and the need to travel quickly arises, my Cindy is packing my bags and covering me in prayer.  What a precious gift!

Cindy, I love you and appreciate you more than words can say!!

Even on this Mother's Day, as I'm about to "Hit the road"....again, on another mission, you stand with me with your love and encouragement.  THANK YOU!!

We spent yesterday at the hangar getting the Little Donkey ready for the "Next mission".  We were blessed to have a new "Water Mule", Joe, with us.

His experience in the military, specifically "Air-Dropping" cargo will prove to be valuable to Air Mobile.  

Again, our Lord knows how to deploy His troops where needed!!

So, on this beautiful Sunday morning, Mother's Day here in America, I pray you love and honor your Mother's and Wives.

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

Whoa!  What would happen IF you got locked out of your computer?  Perish the thought!  

Yet, that is what happened yesterday around the world.  Oh, are we vulnerable!!  

These type of events bring home the reality of how quickly our lives can change.  All the more reason to stay CLOSE TO JESUS!

No matter what happens in this world, Jesus is just a call away.  I'm reminded of one of my all time favorite Scripture..."Whosoever shall CALL upon the Name of the Lord shall be SAVED!

I have a feeling that this will not be the LAST such attack.  We have become so dependent upon the Internet and our computer.  

It's a good exercise to simply THINK about what we would do IF we were "locked out".

We are all in different places and have different circumstances.  However, our Lord offers to give us Wisdom...in ABUNDANCE.  Sounds like a good place to go!!

So, as I go into this day with a "hundred" things to do, I'm CALLING upon Jesus to lead and guide and give give a lot of WISDOM!!

And...speaking of wisdom, our Brother, Chuck (Norris) has a thing or two to say about COFFEE!  

So, on that encouraging note, have a cup of coffee and go into this day seeking His wisdom and guidance.  That's what I'm going to do.

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

I first met Joe Polozola at Baton Rouge High School, 10th grade Geometry Class.  I was 15.  

Since then, our friendship has passed 51 years.  The BEST thing Joe did for me was....introduce me to Jesus!  Joe is my best friend on this earth!

Often, when prayer and wisdom is needed, I call Joe.  We meet often!  Last night we had dinner and I was able to go over every detail of our upcoming South  Sudan Mission.  

Can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate our friendship!

We forgot to take a photo of our dinner, so I found this one from one of our earlier dinner meetings.

Now, I'm in the thick of planning this South Sudan Mission.  There are so many details, I will not bore you with them.  Suffice it to say that I'm on the phone and burning up the keyboard from "can see to can't see....& beyond".  This is a very COMPLICATED Mission!!

Time to get to work and keep moving toward....the next mission.  Thank you, as always for your precious prayer, love and support!!!

While planning the missions ahead and seeing the conditions of the refugees, my heart often breaks.  

But....being in a position to do something, even if it seems like a small thing in the midst of such overwhelming tragedy, brings a sense of THANKFULNESS.

And, as we move forward toward South Sudan, pieces continue to come together.  

I believe that this is by the "Hand of God".  For you see, as our hearts are broken by the untold suffering, so is the "Heart of God"!

I know I tell you this often, but I am so glad that you are with us on this journey.  

No, you may not have a ticket or a visa to go, but you surely are with us with your prayer, love and support and I'm THANKFUL to have you along!!

Yesterday, I took the Little Donkey for a "Test Flight".  It's all ready to go.  That's good.  

Did you know that I actually did a "Flight Plan" all the way to Africa in the little bird? It could be done.  

But....I think flying commercial would be wiser!

Well, it's time to get on with this day that our Lord has made.  We're THANKFUL  and REJOICING in it!

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

Catching up is a "full time job"!  Between paying bills, inspecting the Little Donkey, tracking down my "Yellow Fever" shot from years ago, researching Visas for Uganda and South Sudan...just to name a few...I'm overwhelmed!

But, His grace is sufficient!  I keep hearing His still, small voice...Be still and know that I am God!

Before we can go to South Sudan, certain things MUST be done.    

And, there's always Haiti.  It's been a while since I've been to my favorite little country.

May our Lord lead me this day, each step of the way.  

We've been following the Cholera Outbreak in South Sudan.  MedAir is at "Ground Zero" bringing in help to the victims.  We are reaching out to this organization to see what we can do to help them.  They need CLEAN WATER!  

So, in the midst of all of this stuff going on, I need to just get quiet and seek His direction to know what He wants me to do today.  

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

After spending the last few months "On the Road", it's good to just come home and sit down quietly.  Not easy for me.

Thinking back over the last few months....Haiti, Peru, Panama, Tennessee, Virginia, Los Angeles...and now looking at South Sudan, it's been like a whirlwind.  It's hard to just sit quietly.

As I gazed out of our back yard, admiring a pretty orchid, and across the tranquil pond...I saw an unusual "thing" in the water.  Mmmm, what is that?

Upon closer inspection, I saw that it was our local alligator lurking just at eye level.

I guess there's some measure of danger about everywhere we go.  Not a good idea to go wading in the pond!

Yes, it's good to be home.  I still can't get over how comfortable a soft bed and pillows can be.  Or how delicious a nice, warm leisurely shower can be.  Or looking at a long Buffet line and getting my fill. 

My mind keeps going to the South Sudan refugees that are fleeing for their lives.  Just saw this story to bring the harsh reality of what is happening, not only in South Sudan, but around the world.

It's difficult to wrap my mind around these tragedies that are unfolding as I type this blog.

So, sitting quietly is not an easy thing to do.  It's back to work this morning....getting ready for our "Next Mission", wherever that might be.

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

Spent yesterday "hanging-out" at LAX.  Squeezed as much out of a late check-out as I could from the hotel.  Had to be out by 4:00pm and my flight was not until....10:15pm.

It was a good time to study South Sudan and just watch people.  Found a nice little cafe' and just "parked" there for about 5 hours.

Then....the flight to Orlando was delayed by about an hour.  So, found a seat by the check-in counter and snoozed a bit...getting ready for the "Red Eye Special".

The best way to deal with the "Red Eye" is MELATONIN!  I took a generous portion and managed to actually sleep for a good part of the flight from LAX to Orlando.

We finally left at 11:15PM (Pacific Time) and arrived in Orlando (Eastern Time) at 6:30AM.

Got home, had a cup of coffee with my Cindy and it's time to "Get to work".  Have a lot of stuff to catch up on.

Haiti needs attention, so we'll be getting the Little Donkey all ready for a flight there.  We have many details to settle before leaving for South Sudan.  My "To Do List" is growing by the minute.

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

It was an awesome blessing to Introduce Colonel Dick Stoops for the prestigious "Endeavor Award" presented by Angel Flights West.  

Captured this shot of Dick right next to the Space Shuttle Endeavor.

What a PERFECT SETTING!!  Under the Space Shuttle Endeavour for the Endeavor Awards!!

As we left the hotel for the Event, this shot shows some of Dick's accomplishments in his stellar  military service.

Folks, I've been with Dick in some pretty "dicey" situations and I can tell you for certainty, Dick is a true "American Hero"!

Yes, surely our Lord knows how to deploy His troops!!!

It was a blessing to be with Dick, his wife, Judy, son, Dean and daughter, Mindy.  What a family!!!

What a blessing and honor to be with them for this storied evening.

I was thrilled beyond words to have been able to Introduce Dick and give him the beautiful award!

Here's a bit of the Presentation - COLONEL DICK STOOPS - ENDEAVOR AWARD

It was an evening that I personally will never forget!

I must say that being next to the Space Shuttle Endeavor brought back a lot of NASA memories for me.

So, this evening, I'll board the "Red Eye" from LAX to MCO (Orlando).  Board at 10:15pm (Pacific time) and land 6:15AM (Eastern Time).

Have the rest of the day free and will be doing a lot of research on the dreadful situation in South Sudan and that whole region.  

Cholera, starvation and genocide is ravaging that land.  PLEASE PRAY!!

Thanks to Frontier Airlines, I landed in L.A. yesterday....just a bit late, but right on time for dinner!

Colonel Dick Stoops is being honored by Angel Flights and being given the Endeavor Award for his amazing service to others!

I've had the privilege to work with Dick in several major disasters and can tell you from personal experience... DICK IS THE REAL DEAL...A TRUE TROOPER!!

Yesterday evening, we had dinner together at "Rush Street Cafe" in Culver City.  

Oh my...do they know how to cook.  Had a delicious dinner and wonderful fellowship with Dick and his family!

The event will actually take place under the Space Shuttle Endeavor in the California Science Center in Los Angeles.

What a magnificent setting for this wonderful event!!

Here's more - 2017 ENDEAVOR AWARDS

Our keynote Speaker will be Captain "Sully" Sullenberger of the "Miracle on the Hudson" fame.  What a PILOT...What a MIRACLE!!!

After the long flight from Orlando to LAX and a lovely dinner, I'm free for the day and with Pacific Time, was able to "sleep in" this morning.

Have the distinct honor to "Present" Colonel Dick Stoops to receive his "Endeavor" award this evening.

Will just hang out at the hotel and work on my little "Presentation" speech and do a lot of research on South Sudan and the looming "Cholera Outbreak".... that is happening as I type.  PLEASE remember to pray for South Sudan!

Finally arrived home in the midst of intense storms.  Used my Air Navigation (Fore Flight) to work around the worst storms.  The little airplane is actually my Ford Escape.  Cool tool.

Several months ago, I agreed to Introduce my dear friend and colleague, Colonel Dick Stoops of Remote Area Medical (RAM).

Dick is an Endeavor Awardee and the event will take place in Los Angeles on Saturday evening, so....I'll be boarding a flight for LAX in just a few hours.  

Here's more on this wonderful award - 2017 ENDEAVOR AWARDS

Dick has a lifetime of serving others and I'm so glad that he is being recognized for his incredible skill, bravery & service!

Dick made HEROIC air drops out of Cessna 206 in Haiti following Hurricane Matthew (dropped over 55,000 meals to the hungry!)

I just got home....and am "On the Road Again"!  I PRAISE GOD for my Cindy who understands the intense, busy schedule and helps me pack my bags between missions.


So, it is time head to the airport to get a quick update on the Little Donkey and pack my bags and fly to LA!

Had a wonderful meeting with Bill of AirServ in Warrenton, VA. AirServ is CURRENTLY flying in South Sudan.  Our meeting was very insightful and productive.  

Was able to show Bill the Air Mobile Rescuer for planning purposes.  Look forward to working closely with AirServ in the future.

While in the parking lot of the hotel, heard from the U.S. State Department.  Again, gained a LOT of VALUABLE information regarding the conditions in South Sudan.  The main counsel is...."BE CAREFUL"!

Then, it was back on the road for home!  Got about half way there and finally "ran out of gas" (not literally) in Florence, SC and had a lovely evening in a nice hotel.

You know, often, in a hotel,  while I'm in a comfortable bed with soft pillows, I think of the "Refugees" who have walked countless miles with little or no food or water and often "fleeing" for their lives.

First of all, I'm THANKFUL for all of the blessings that we have and then, my heart breaks for the "MILLIONS" around the world who are on the brink of death.

YES, we must do something.  Even if it seems like a "Drop in the Bucket".  If you're at the bottom of the bucket, you're THANKFUL that someone is at least putting in drops!

TOGETHER, we can make a difference!  THANK YOU for joining me on this journey!  We so APPRECIATE your precious prayer, love and support!!!

Cholera spreads like wildfire and kills rapidly!  The outbreak has begun in refugee camps in South Sudan.  Once this fire is lit, it's very, very difficult to put it out.  The #1 need is CLEAN WATER!!

Once again, please forgive me for sharing these images, but here's what is happening throughout South Sudan refugee camps right now as I type and as you read this blog - WARNING:  THE IMAGES ARE DISTURBING

I, personally have experience with Cholera and actually contracted the deadly disease.  It nearly killed me. 

 This is a dreadful situation and we're accelerating our time-line to get to South Sudan to bring in LIFE-SAVING CLEAN WATER!

Yesterday, I visited an amazing organization, Dynamic Aviation located in Bridgewater, VA.  I was met by a team of professionals who have tremendous experience flying in this region of the world.  

I'm THANKFUL for the information I obtained and look forward to working with this great organization in the future!  They are operating multiple aircraft around the world, and have a huge fleet of King-Airs, a great aircraft!

After visiting Dynamic Aviation, it was back on the road to Warranton, VA.  Here, I will be meeting with AirServ, an amazing Humanitarian aviation organization.

AirServ is currently serving in South Sudan. We will be discussing our upcoming mission and the possibility of their flying us into hard hit regions of South Sudan.

Again....as per Solomon "In the multitude of counsel, there is safety!!

Time to fill up my coffee thermos and head over to AirServ to plan our strategy.  

Then, it'll be "One the Road Again" (makes me think of Willy Nelson) for the long drive back to Florida.

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

Time to leave the sweet cabin in the mountains of East TN.  On the way home, will be visiting several Aviation Organizations that operate in Sudan / South Sudan.  

There is much information yet to be gained...before we launch our mission to that region of the world.

Here is a story on the conditions there and I WARN YOU, there are disturbing images and stories - 

Caught in the middle of this cruel, evil and insane killing are innocent men, women and children.  We must do something to help!

It's time for me to pack up and head out of this beautiful and tranquil place.  The contrast of what is going on in South Sudan breaks my heart and I know it breaks the heart of Jesus!

I'm reminded of the Words of Jesus to His Disciples...

After the extremely productive meetings with Remote Area Medical (R.A.M.) and a host of experienced pilots, we're moving closer and closer to launching multiple "Missions" to South Sudan.

This week will be dedicated to making many, many more contacts.  May even make a run to Washington DC, where we hope to find out more critical details on South Sudan.  We may even find some much needed financial support...we'll see!

The more we research this upcoming mission, the more we realize that it is by far the most complicated and possibly the most dangerous mission we've ever launched.  

That is the reason I ask for your PRAYER as never before!

Will be at the cabin for a few more days.  What a lovely and peaceful place to PLAN & PRAY!! 

I'm so THANKFUL for my precious Cindy, who has taken care of so many Air Mobile details & "Keeping the Home Fires Burning"!  


And...tomorrow is our Ariana's 12th Birthday!  I won't be there is person, but will be there "Face Time". 


It's time to make "a hundred phone calls"!  Have many more contacts to make.  As always, THANK YOU for your invaluable prayer, love and support!!
