THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES.....JULY 2020

THE PEACE OF GOD....& PREPARING FOR THE "NEXT MISSION"


In the midst of the craziness that is sweeping America, JESUS PROMISES US PEACE, HIS PEACE!

As I read the headlines, it is difficult not to have some level of anxiety.  I go to God's Word for PEACE!

I love the whole 14th Chapter of John.


Jesus begins by telling us...."Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe God, believe also in Me...."

Jesus gave us John 14 just hours before He went to the Cross.  It was on the Cross that He gave us SALVATION!  What have we to fear??  JESUS PAID THE PRICE... IN FULL!

There, I just had to share that GOOD NEWS with you!!  FEAR NOT!!


So, this morning, I'll be taking the Little Donkey up, just to be sure that this sweet bird will be READY when called upon.


We currently have Tropical Storm Fay headed to New York City, but it is not expected to do much damage.  

It does, however, tell us that we are in "HURRICANE SEASON" and we'd best be PREPARED!!

After the Test Flight, I'll be PACKING UP our Florida home and on Sunday, heading back to Tennessee to join Cindy and Ari!  YEA!!

So, as we go forth into this day, may we open our hearts to receive HIS PEACE!

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

12 HOURS LATER....

Even though it's a rather long drive, it is quite pleasant & beautiful between the Mountains of East Tennessee and "Sunny" Florida.  

So THANKFUL for no delays or accidents!


I did get behind a "Car Carrier" and the driver was all over the road.  Prayed for the driver and he seemed to stabilize.  PRAYER CHANGES THINGS!


I was joined by Benjie Bear who made the journey quite well with me.

He's a good little travel companion.

For the next few days, will be packing up our Florida home and then heading back to Tennessee.


While here in Florida, I'll be taking the Little Donkey up for some test flights to be sure it's "Ready for Action".

Meanwhile, as we observe the significant increase in COVID-19 cases, we're THANKFUL that the death toll is continuing to drop.

It's best to "stack the deck" in our favor by wearing a mask and having plenty of hand-sanitizer on hand.  No need to take needless or "silly" chances with this virus!

Well, it's time to start "packing".  As always, THANK YOU for joining me on this journey through life.  So appreciate your prayer, love and support!!!

SUNSET HARVEST.....



Cindy had a few days off from the Hospital in Hazard, Kentucky.  So good to have her here for our sunset harvest.  


She did such an incredible job of planning and laying out our VICTORY GARDEN.  She is indeed my Proverb 31 "Lady of God"!

You, who ramble down this road of life with us probably recall when this was just a plot of grass.

We're just blown away by how fruitful this Victory Garden is.  And...we've just begun.

As soon as we finish our harvest, we have beautiful soil to plant our next crop.

We're almost ready to start harvesting the tomatoes & potatoes & pole beans.

I know I've encouraged you to consider putting in a garden (small or large).  


This gives us the ability to provide our own healthful food at a tiny cost (seeds & a lot of wonderful labor).

We don't know what challenges lie ahead.  But, we do know Who does!  We're holding tightly onto His Hand.

Later today, I'll be heading back to Florida.  It's time to "Pack" up our home there. We're THANKFUL to have a signed contract and....we're selling it to our dear friends Jim and Ruby Logan.

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

JESUS IN PERILOUS TIMES....


Our Lord Jesus told us that there'd be times like this...."In this world, you will have TROUBLE, but be of GOOD CHEER....I have overcome the world"

Folks, I believe that harder times are coming.



It is a good time to "Brace Yourself" and stay CLOSE TO JESUS!

Jesus tells us that  TROUBLE (TRIBULATION)  lies ahead, but.... IN JESUS THERE IS PEACE!

With the increase in COVID-19 cases, much due to the increased testing, things are beginning to SHUT DOWN again.  

We're very THANKFUL that the DEATH TOLL IS DECREASING!!  This is much to do with knowing how to better treat the virus.

Right at this time, many ESSENTIAL services are open and relatively well-stocked.  Stores like Walmart and Supermarkets are still open.  


It is an excellent time to stock-up...especially on toilet paper (that's a bit of a joke).

Cindy and I PRAY for things to get better, not worse. However, we have seen how quickly things can change...for the worse. 

Again, all the more reason to STAY CLOSE TO JESUS!!!

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

CRAZY TIMES....

COVID-19 has definitely affected us all (around the whole globe!!).  Just how serious is this?  Not sure.


Just saw this insane "Street Party" in LONDON.  Pretty "RISKY" stuff. 

The fact is...WE DON'T KNOW the DANGER! 

However....rest assured, we've got our masks, plenty of hand-sanitizer, have a good PREP SUPPLY and we're avoiding large crowds.

There, that's our thoughts on the matter.  Again, if we err on any side, may we err on the SAFE SIDE!

And above all, may we increase and strengthen our PRAYER SIDE!!


In the meantime, we're getting ready for the next major disaster.  

Yahn, our Chief Water Mule is gathering up parts and building Air Mobile Rescuers as our funds allow.  

We want to be READY for whatever may lie ahead.


The Little Donkey is READY TO FLY!  

PRAISE GOD!!

So....on this beautiful Monday, I'm in the garden weeding and catching bugs.

Nice way to spend the day.

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

WEEDING.....NOT SO BAD


When Cindy and I laid the "foundation" for our Victory Garden, we put down a lot of cardboard and paper to greatly "reduce" weeding.  However....weeds still find a way in.

So...part of the garden process is "weeding".  But, the weeds, when put to good use (a compost pile), become part of what makes good soil.

Hmmm, there has to be a lesson somewhere here.  I guess, in a sense, we're all "weeds" until Jesus comes into our life and CHANGES EVERYTHING.  

Well, I got up early this Sunday morning and had that first cup of coffee and started weeding and got so into it...we're late for church. Gotta run!!

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

GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!


244 Years ago, the Great Experiment began and today, it is still alive!

PRAISE GOD!!

Cindy and I are proud to be Americans and are so THANKFUL for this great nation!!

Now, as never before, we must stand up and PRAY for God to continue to BLESS AMERICA!!

We hope and pray that you are BLESSED wherever you are.  STAY SAFE!!  

Have had a couple of folks ask me....how do you keep the "critters" out of your beautiful Victory Garden? Have a couple tricks.  Here they are.

The first one is an "Orbit Yard Enforcer".  It's a very cool motion activated sprinkler that simply chases the "intruders" out of the garden.  Don't have to kill-em, just startle them and they run away.

Here's how it work....



Now, the other one, I was a bit skeptical over, but it too works...if you work it.  Identify the leaves that the bugs love.  In our case, it is the pole bean leaves.  


Get a glass jar with a lid.  Sneak up to the bug and just flick the leaf and they just fall right in.  I've "captured" over a hundred and counting. 

And, the good news is, the bugs only like the pole bean leaves. The tomatoes and the other vegetables are not on the bug's menu.


Now, there are so many wonderful lessons here.  Jesus gives us the parable of the "Sower & the Seeds".  

Good idea to put GOOD SEED INTO GOOD SOIL.


Folks the best soil is the Word of God!  Every day, we're planting seeds.  May we strengthen our Soil with God's Word.

When the enemy comes to "steal the seed", may we chase him out with the Word of God.


BTW, the Critter Chaser is called the "Orbit Yard Enforcer".  Here's a link - ORBIT YARD ENFORCER

Well, those are my rambling thoughts on this beautiful 4th OF JULY CELEBRATION!!

REMEMBER TO PRAY for our LEADERS.  They certainly need it!!

And...THANK YOU for rambling down this road of life with me. We so APPRECIATE your precious prayer, love and support!!!

HARVEST TIME....



One of the sweetest moments in the "VICTORY GARDEN" is HARVESTING!


This morning, in a 5'X5' section of the garden were the Beets.  

And are they beautiful!  It was time to harvest them.


One of them is the size of a baseball! 

Even the beet tops are delicious & and very nutritious!!



We all know how good beets are for us (you've probably heard the "Super Beets" commercials) and the many benefits of "Nitric Oxide".  

Well, we have a lot of good nourishment and health and even enough to share.  PRAISE GOD!!

Again, please forgive me for going on and on about the "VICTORY GARDEN", but there are so many lessons and demonstrations of GOD'S BOUNTIFUL GOODNESS TO US!  

Just had to share this "Harvest" moment with you.  Can't begin to tell you what JOY this sweet "VICTORY GARDENhas brought to me and Cindy.  GOD IS GOOD!!!!

As always, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support and walking down this path of life with me!!

WHAT A DEAL....


Sitting in the Victory Garden yesterday evening, had some thoughts about "planting seeds".

I never cease to marvel at HOW GOOD OUR LORD IS TO US!!

Just putting a tiny seed into "good soil" can yield so much!!

Even if you're on a limited fixed income, this deal is almost too good to be true.  Yes, I believe we are coming into some very difficult days.  

COVID-19, whether real or not is causing GLOBAL WOES for BILLIONS OF PEOPLE.

Frankly, I don't know how much is real, very few of us do.  The bottom line is...WHAT CAN I DO / WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Again, my simple suggestion is.... consider PLANTING SOME SEEDS FOR FOOD.

Assess your situation and fill in the weak spots.  Maintain an extra supply of food, clean water, batteries, etc.  In other words...PREPARE!  

Not only will this be of great benefit, it will also give you some peace of mind during these difficult days.


And, I'd also like to add that Cindy and I have had a blast with this garden.  It has been so rewarding!!!

We PRAY that our Lord will intervene and give America another chance.  We pray that the "new normal" will not be too bad.  But....if not, at least we've done something.

These are just some of my rambling thoughts. Take them as you will.

And...I know that I say this every single day, but I truly appreciate your precious prayer, love and support!!!

WHAT TO BELIEVE???

There are so many conflicting reports coming out regarding COVID-19! Is it real?  Is it exaggerated?  What should I do?  

If I am asked, what do I believe?  My answer is..."IF YOU ERR ON ANY SIDE, ERR ON THE PREPARE SIDE!!

In that way, you are more PREPARED for what might come.  Folks, we are presently in the CALM BEFORE THE STORM! 


I urge you to be like the 5 Wise Virgins in Matthew 25.  They went out and bought extra oil for their lamps while the market was still open and prices were normal.  

As for me and my house, we don't want to be like the foolish virgins who assumed that the wait would not be too late.

OK, PLEASE forgive me for going on and on about the STORMS COMING.  

Who would have ever thought that things could change so RAPIDLY.  

MANY STORMS HAVE ALREADY HIT....violence in the streets, millions dead around the globe from COVID-19, economic collapse, millions unemployed, terrible fear and anger.

Our nation is under ATTACK from a deadly virus and extremely confusing and conflicting information.

Our nation is EXTREMELY DIVIDED!  It is true....A HOUSE DIVIDED AGAINST ITSELF WILL FALL!

MAY OUR LORD BRING PEACE & UNITY TO AMERICA!!


Meanwhile, AIR MOBILE MINISTRIES IS ALIVE & WELL!  The Little Donkey is ready for action.  
A number of Air Mobile Rescuers have been built and ready for immediate deployment wherever needed.  

WE STAND READY TO GO!!

So, what am I going to do today?  Heading back to Walmart and continuing to stock up...while we can.

May I encourage you to do what you can, while you can, to get ready for what might lie ahead.

And, I want to say just how much I appreciate your invaluable and precious prayer, love and support!!!
