"OLD TIMERS....TALKING ABOUT THE WEATHER"



I remember, when I was a kid, I'd laugh about the "Old Timers" talking about the weather.


Now....I'm an "Old Timer" &....I'm talking about the weather.


Well, having a little farm, it's important to wait for the rain to stop before picking up 25 bales of hay...or such.


You know, when you write a "Daily Blog", sometimes, I just don't know what to talk about.  So....I look around and...talk about the weather.  


And here we are, in between "Missions" and getting ready for...the Next Mission.


It's also nice to just sit around with a good cup of coffee and watch the old wood stove.  Yes, I'm getting "older" and enjoying the simple things in life.


Hope you're having a good day.  So glad you've joined me on the rambling blog.


As I say every single day....THANK YOU for your precious prayer. love and support!!

WHAT TO DO?


On this cold rainy day, the most important thing is to keep the coffee flowing and wood stove burning.



Yesterday, I spoke with several of our very dear friends who are currently in Haiti.  They are "laying low" and staying off the streets.


Together, we're working on "evacuation plans".....should it become necessary.


I first went to Haiti in 1978 and must say, have never seen this desperate, poor, violent country in such bad shape.  


Again, the gangs have almost completely taken over Haiti.  It is just a terrible situation.


PLEASE PRAY for Haiti and the millions who are in deep harms way.


Time to get on with this day.  May our Lord's will be done...on earth as it is in heaven!!


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

WATCHING....& PRAYING


Sitting here at our beloved "Retreat Cabin", watching the "News" (must be taken with a grain of salt), our hearts break at the cruelty and suffering going on in the world.


Haiti is just totally out of control.  


The gangs are gaining more and more territory and literally millions of innocent victims are in the path of this deadly and cruel siege.  


Here's more - IN HAITI, GANGS TAKE CONTROL AS DEMOCRACY WITHERS


WE PRAY!!


On another front, Russia has loosed 200,000 more "troops" (many are freed prisoners) on Ukraine.  



They are grinding out more territory with again, literally millions of innocent victims in their path. 

WE PRAY!!


Plans are beginning to come together for Air Mobile to launch another mission.  We can't give any more details at this time.


Meanwhile, here at this wonderful sanctuary of peace and calm, we rest and PRAY!!


I want you to know just how much I appreciate your faithful prayer, love and support!!

YES LORD....


Yes, Lord.  Those two words are powerful.  They go back to our Lord Jesus teaching us how to pray. "Thy will be done" in me, this day.


So, whatever our Lord Jesus has for me to do today, I say..."Yes Lord".


Seeking Him today and asking Him to direct my path is my goal today.


With a cup of coffee in my hand, and my heart turned toward Jesus.... is the way to begin this day.


Wherever you may be, or whatever you may be going through, may I encourage you to turn your heart toward Jesus.  He will take this day and make it a good day for you.


Let these words roll off your lips today...."Yes Lord"! 


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

SUNDAY IN AMERICA.....


It wasn't that long ago that Christians all around the world were "restricted" from attending church.


Oh, it wasn't only Christians, but literally the whole world was on COVID LOCK DOWN.


So glad those day are over and....what a JOY to just go to church and hear the Word of God.


Now, the world "teeters" on the edge of a possible Nuclear War.  


We PRAY that it doesn't come to that.


So...what are we going to do?  Well, first and foremost, as for me and my house, we will SERVE THE LORD!


As you read this rambling blog, take a few moments and enjoy the freedom that we have.


There are so many around the world that do not have this wonderful freedom.  We PRAY for them!


Well, I've been asked by our Sunday School Teacher to do the lesson today.  It will be in John 7....how Jesus was SENT by the FATHER.


Hope you enjoy this Sunday Morning in America.


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

SNUG.....


It's the simple things in life for which we're THANKFUL.


This snug little cabin, tucked away in the Mountains of East TN is such a blessing to us.


Sometimes it's good to just take inventory, look around and let THANKSGIVING flow through our hearts.


As you may know by now, I get up every morning, pour a cup of coffee and spend a few minutes pondering my life, the goodness of our Lord, and what this day may hold.


I often look back on what has transpired to get me to this "juncture of the journey" and then type a few words about it.


Many of you have wandered down this road of life with me for quite some time.


We've been together through earthquakes, typhoons, floods, hurricanes, war, brutal gangs, amazing rescues, cancer, cholera & other dread diseases and so much more. 


We've prayed about so many things and looking back, we see the Hand of God in our lives in such wonderful ways.


Well, on this chilly Saturday morning, Cindy and I will take a ride together through these lovely Smokey Mountains, and look for some property for some of our friends....and just enjoying this precious time together.


I want to THANK YOU for your faithful prayer, love and support!!

QUIET PRAYER....


Here, in between "missions"....we PRAY!


Just heard a report this morning, that Dr. Sherlyne is headed to the U.S. for further treatment.


This photo shows her being loaded onto the Medi-Vac Jet.  PRAISE GOD!!  


That means that she has gained enough strength to make the journey.  PRAISE GOD!


She has been fighting a terrible infection in her body.


We continue to PRAY for this precious Lady of God!


Staying back at the "Retreat Cabin", in between "Missions", gives  wonderful opportunities to PRAY & INTERCEDE for others.


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

WHERE TO?


This morning, the snow is falling and the fire is burning and it's snug here in the "Retreat Cabin".


For the moment, we're just staying put and taking care of chores and simply enjoying the peace and quiet.


We'll head out soon enough, but for now we'll just hang around and spend quality time with our Lord.


I want you to know just how much I appreciate your faithful prayer, love and support!!

NUKE BERLIN??


Russia is furious after Germany agreed to send Leopard 2 Tanks to Ukraine via Poland.


Here's more - LEOPARD 2 TANKS HEADED TO UKRAINE...RUSSIA FURIOUS


Folks, we are teetering on the edge here and we certainly should PRAY as Russia threatens to "NUKE BERLIN!!"


Here at the "Retreat Cabin", we continue to prepare for our "next mission" and we monitor these late developments.


There is so much here, that I don't understand but....I know Who does!


We lean on Jesus and seek His direction for us.

A REMARKABLE REPORT....


Just moments ago, I spoke with Dr. Sherlyne's husband, Dr. Vital.  His report was very encouraging.  Dr. Sherlyne's condition is STABLE.


As you may know, Dr. Sherlyne had sepsis, a deadly infection that was ravaging her body.  Well, the treatment and...THE PRAYERS are sustaining this lovely Doctor who has served so many with her skill and love.


Here's an excerpt from the "Go Fund Me" Page - 


"We are the family, friends and colleagues of Sherlyne, a young Pediatrician who desperately needs our help. Sherlyne graduated from the St. Damien/Bernard Mevs residency program in Haiti and returned to her hometown where she has been saving lives. 

In early December she gave birth to her first child, a healthy baby boy. Approximately two weeks following his delivery, she began experiencing severe abdominal pain and needed urgent surgery. 

Sherlyne has been hospitalized in Haiti since and after multiple life-saving abdominal surgeries she has exhausted local medical ability, has lost her left leg and will lose her life if we are unable to fly her to the United States to receive emergent care. 

The providers in Haiti have coordinated funds to air lift Sherlyn to the United States. However, she needs a medical visa to enter. We can’t obtain a medical visa without a receiving hospital. The funds we raise today will be used to pay her hospital bills and to encourage a hospital in the United States to receive Sherlyne immediately. 

If Sherlyne dies, not only will her baby boy loose his mom, her husband his beloved wife but Haiti will lose an amazing pediatrician, and we will lose our friend. Please donate any amount you can to help get Sherlyne to the United States. We are forever thankful."

So, for now, the best thing for Dr. Sherlyne is to remain in Haiti and regain her strength.


Our personal friend and doctor, Dr. Steve Badolato is in touch with Dr. Vital and will be able to arrange a hospital to treat her in the U.S. ...if necessary.


We urge you to continue to PRAY for Dr. Sherlyne and again, THANK YOU  for your faithful prayers!!!


Well, here at the "Retreat Cabin", we're staying warm thanks to our old wood stove and I'm catching up on a lot of paperwork for Air Mobile.


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

JOE.....SNOW



It's a cold rainy / snowy morning here at the "Retreat Cabin".



Went out to start our old 2000 Dodge Ram and the batteries are dead.  


Need to have that old 'farm truck' up and running and available to pull out someone stuck or such.


Yahn and I will be bringing it down to town for a fresh set of batteries.  


So....we'll be ready to rock and roll....if necessary.


Just another day here in the mountains of East TN.


On another note, we're awaiting an update on Dr. Sherlyne's conditions.  Last report was....she was stable.  We continue to PRAY for this precious lady of God!!


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

JUST LIKE THAT....


Well, for the last 3 days, our internet has been down.  We did have a very, very tiny signal with our I-phone, but it was barely functional.


Yahn, our trusty Water Mule and general chief technician worked and worked on it until....finally, we found the weak link.  


It was a defective switching box with a wicked & very elusive intermittent signal.


Now, being without full functioning internet helped Cindy and I to catch up on reading and just have more sweet fellowship.  


Of course, we've enjoyed the old wood stove immensely.  So, we've taken this frustration and turned it into a blessing.


It's just so nice to be able to type freely and upload with ease and speed.  


I know there are multiple lessons here.  May we just draw closer to Jesus!!


Well, it's time for Church and maybe....we'll just throttle back a bit with all that good, strong internet.


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

IN THE MOUNTAINS.....


Being tucked away in the lovely mountains of East TN has many advantages.  


But....those lovely mountains sometimes, block internet signals.  


Our regular internet service has some weird 'conflict' and that has left me with only my "microscopic" cell phone signal.  


I've connected to that tiny "hot spot" in my I-Phone and am able to get just enough signal to write my "rambling blog".


So, that's my challenge this morning.  In the meantime, I can look out over our lovely valley with the mountains in the back-ground and savor a delicious cup of coffee and enjoy the silence.


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


Air Mobile Joe


PS - We're awaiting a current update on our dear sister, Dr. Sherlyne.  PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY for her.


UPDATE ON DR. SHERLYNE 1-21-23 at 9:15 am.


I just spoke with Dr. Sherlyne's husband and he said that this morning, she is stable.  


We are THANKFUL for that.  Our hope and prayer is that she will continue to improve!  THANK YOU for your vital prayers for this precious lady of God!!

SILENCE.....


We've been attempting to get a line through to check on the status of Dr. Sherlyene and have been unable to make contact.  We will continue to reach out.


Note:  In Haiti, it is not unusual for lines to be tied up like this.


In the meantime, we're PRAYING FOR A MIRACLE!  Please continue to PRAY with us for this precious soul.


On another note, we're working hard to prepare as many Air Mobile Rescuers as we can for future deployments.

DR. SHERLYNE IS IN STABLE, BUT VERY GUARDED CONDITION...THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS!!


At this point, in this battle of life and death for this precious Doctor in Haiti, the best thing is for her to remain where she is and build up her strength.


Our PRAYERS are so vital and Dr. Sherlyne is fighting with all of her strength.  PLEASE keep up the PRAYERS & LOVE!


We hope to get a report this morning.  I'm so THANKFUL that our Dr. Steve Badolato and Dr. Sherlyne's husband, who is also a Doctor are working very closely together.


Haiti is in such terrible condition and they desperately need good Doctors.


Here's the GO FUND ME link:  LET'S HELP SAVE DR. SHERLYNE'S LIFE

AN URGENT CALL FROM HAITI!


Yesterday, received a prayer request for a Doctor (Pediatrician) in Haiti who needs IMMEDIATE EMERGENCY CARE to save her life.


First, we have been PRAYING for a MIRACLE!


Then, through a series of calls and tapping into some old and dear friends, we're  lining  up a Medi-Vac Jet to fly her to the U.S.


Then, we've secured a "Receiving Doctor"  to meet the plane. THANK YOU DR. STEVE!!! 


A GO FUND ME page has been set up and I urge you to give whatever you feel led to save this precious Doctors life in Haiti.

I'VE GOT A SECRET....


I remember, growing up in the 50's, there was  a very popular game show called, "I'VE GOT A SECRET".


Well, with all of  this TOP SECRET stuff going on, I was pondering what to write this morning. 


Then,  I recalled, as a kid, sitting around the Black & White TV, eating TV Dinners, and watching the panelist guess...THE SECRET.


BTW, Biden would have been a teenager at the time and likely watched the show and gotten a few tips & probably forgotten a few.


Enough about all of this.  No telling where all of this will end.


 Today, working on our taxes and planning our next "Mission(s)".


If you're old enough to remember this classic 50's Game show, then...you must be pretty old too.  


But....I'd like to believe we're getting a little older and wiser.


In the meantime, we PRAY FOR AMERICA to maneuver through all of this.


And....as I say every single day, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!

PLANNING .....TIME TO "GET READY"


On this crisp, beautiful morning, here at the "Retreat Cabin", we're PLANNING our next Missions.


2023 is definitely shaping up to be a challenging year.  


As we follow the developments of the War in Ukraine, we're building more Air Mobile Rescuers for deployments into "HOT" regions where war is raging & CLEAN WATER is desperately needed.


Likewise, we're developing PLANS for  Emergency Rescue flights to Haiti and getting in position to move those in extreme danger OUT of Haiti.


More to come on these Missions, as they develop.


In the meantime, here at the "Retreat Cabin", we're just enjoying the peace and beauty that we have here.  



Again, it's a great time to "Recharge our Batteries" and get ready when the 'Call Comes'.

72 YEARS AGO TODAY.....


A sweet little Cajun Momma gave birth to a baby boy at the "Our Lady of the Lake Hospital" in Baton Rouge, 72 years ago today.


I recall my mother telling me the story of the birth.  It was a very difficult delivery, long hours in labor....and at birth  her baby boy contracted Viral Pneumonia and fought between life and death.


Apparently, our Lord Jesus had plans for that little boy.


Well, I'm glad he survived....enough to write this rambling blog today.  


PRAISE GOD....it's good to be alive!!

HACKED???


We may never know the truth about why the FAA massive shutdown (the largest shut down since 9-11) occurred yesterday.  


It is rather strange that Canada had a similar problem.  Again, we may never know.


Our hope and prayer is that this event will cause a solid review of our ATC Systems and proper redundancies will be put into place.


We do need to PRAY for the Department of Transportation....to figure it out. 


 And, on another note, the latest revelation regarding the 2nd batch of MISSING Classified Docs found in Biden's private office is quite revealing.


All I can say is....I hope and pray that EQUAL JUSTICE WILL BE DONE!   We'll see....

20,000 OPERATIONS!!


Yesterday, meeting my surgeon  Dr. Smith, of Vanderbilt University Medical Center, was a true blessing.  


I understand why my Urologist told me to see Dr. Smith.  He is a Legend in this type of surgery....having performed over 20,000 such operations!


His quiet confidence and vast knowledge is very comforting.


We've already scheduled a series of scans and another biopsy to see just what is going on in me.


I'd like to add that Dr. Smith goes to Africa 4 times a year and does amazing work with those less fortunate. 


We also discussed the desperate need for CLEAN WATER.  I'm sending him info on the Air Mobile Rescuer water purifier.  


I am truly BLESSED to have him as my surgeon.


THANK YOU JESUS!!

A DAY AT THE "OFFICE"....


Yes, it's good to be home at our sweet "Retreat Cabin".  



Today, I'll be working in the Air Mobile office answering correspondence and sending out "Receipt" letters.


As always, we're planning our "Next Mission(s)".  It's good to know, if need be, that we can now increase our aviation outreach with the addition of Captain John A.'s Skymaster.


As we launch into 2023, we see so many areas of extreme need.  Yesterday, I spoke with my dear friend and Brother in Christ, Bobby Burnette of Love-A-Child Mission.


Bobby gave me the harrowing details of a recent kidnapping of 17 "Love-A-Child" employees.  After 13 days, they were released..... MIRACULOUSLY!!


Unfortunately, one lady died in this brutal attack.  Please pray for her family.


PLEASE - PLEASE REMEMBER TO PRAY FOR HAITI & THOSE WHO ARE RISKING THEIR LIVES TO HELP OTHERS!


The suffering due to the terrible Gang activity is staggering.  None of this is getting into the news.


I'm so THANKFUL that Air Mobile was able to bring in 5 more Air Mobile Rescuer water purifiers recently.

HOME AT THE "RETREAT CABIN".....


Rolled up to the sweet "Retreat Cabin" yesterday afternoon.  It's just good to be home....for a little while.


In reflection on the wonderful meeting I had with John A, the UPS Captain and Skymaster owner, all I can say is WOW!  What a sweet deal.  


John's flying experience is just incredible and his heart to serve Jesus is extraordinary.  


Finding a nearly identical Skymaster to Ti Burik is likewise amazing.


Even down to the Winglets.   We're currently looking for a Cargo Pod for John's Skymaster.   


The fact is we can now literally DOUBLE our aviation assets.  PRAISE GOD!!


2023 is shaping up to be quite a year and we're so THANKFUL to be alive and available to our Lord during these turbulent and perilous times.


So, from the "Retreat Cabin" we plan our "Next Mission".

ENLARGING AIR MOBILE.....


Yesterday morning, I had the pleasure to meet John A, a UPS 767 Captain.


Recently, John purchased a Turbo Cessna 337 Skymaster.  He heard about Air Mobile and the Little Donkey, another Turbo Cessna Skymaster and he reached out to me.


Well, our meeting yesterday went just great!  John has agreed to make himself and his Skymaster available to Air Mobile as needed.


He'll even be moving his Skymaster from Melbourne, FL to the hangar right next door to the Little Donkey!



In essence, Air Mobile's "Fleet", just DOUBLED in size and capability!


As we look ahead to 2023, we know that there are great challenges ahead.  Along with those CHALLENGES, we have great OPPORTUNITIES before us.


John A is a solid believer in our Lord Jesus and as we concluded our great meeting yesterday, our PRAYER was simply.....Dear Lord, have Your way with us and above all, THY WILL BE DONE!!  


PRAISE GOD!!!  


Well, after our great 4 hour  meeting, I hit the road for our beloved "Retreat Cabin".  Got about half there and pulled into a comfortable hotel somewhere in South Carolina.


We're continuing to PRAY for Damar Hamlin!!

AN EXCITING FOOTBALL GAME - A TRAGIC BLOW TO THE HEART & MEETING WITH A VERY DEAR OLD FRIEND...


Yesterday was filled with "Roller Coaster Emotions"!  


My son's Christian, Peter and my grand-son Rhythm showed up at Camping World Stadium to see our beloved LSU Tigers soundly defeat the Perdue Boilermakers.


After the game, I headed over to my best friend's home, Joe Polozola who lives in near-by Longwood, FL.


Joe introduced me to Jesus over 50 years ago, and for that, I am eternally grateful.  


Joe and I meet fairly regularly and the fellowship is rich, as we recall the AMAZING GRACE that brought me to Jesus.


The plan was to watch another football game between the Bengals and Buffalo Bills at Joe's home.  


It was early in the first quarter when we saw Damar Hamlin go down.


We like so many waited for him to get up.  He did not.  It appears that he suffered a massive heart attack right before our eyes.  WE IMMEDIATELY PRAYED & continue to do so for Damar to recover.


Here's more on this tragic blow to the heart - BUFFALO BILL'S HAMLIN IN CRITICAL CONDITION


So, we ask you to join us in PRAYER for Damar and his family.


It's time for me to bid farewell to my dear friends, Joe and Diane Polozola.  


I have another meeting in Titusville this morning with a UPS Captain who has a sweet little Cessna 337 Skymaster and wants to put it to work for our Lord Jesus.


Please PRAY for our Lord's will to be done and.....THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!

A FOGGY MORNING.....WHERE'S RUDOLPH?


Departed the "Retreat Cabin" early yesterday morning.  A lot of heavy fog as I worked my way out of the Mountains of East TN.


The rest of the 12 journey went smooth with no major delays along the way.


Pulled into my son, Christian's lovely home around 9:30 pm.  Had a lovely meal and called it a day.



Up early this morning and the thick fog is here again.  


Where's Rudolph?? 


Christian and Ann Marie have a lovely home and I'm so proud of them for their deep dedication to our Lord Jesus.


This morning, Christian, Rhythm, Peter and I will take the short drive to Orlando for the 2023 game in the Camping World Citrus Bowl. We'll find our seats and settle into some good football.


Yes, I'm pulling for my LSU Tigers, who had a remarkably good season with their new Coach Brian Kelly.  He's doing a good job and the team had some incredible victories this year.


BTW, anytime you beat Alabama, it's a good season!


Well, enough of all of that.  Just want you know how much I appreciate your precious prayer, love and support!!

2023 IS HERE!


Looking back on 2022, we find some sad and tragic events.  Russia invaded Ukraine and now, the world is teetering on the precipice of Nuclear War!


In Haiti, in the midst of a terrible Cholera outbreak, renegade Gangs are ruling the streets and stopping relief agencies from bringing life-giving help to the suffering and dying.


Covid -19, and it's variants are breaking out in China and other parts of the world.


And....the list goes on and on.  So, what are we to do?  


As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!!


We PRAY for God's Peace to sweep over the Earth this New Year!


Cindy prepared an amazing Feast here at the "Retreat Cabin" yesterday.  What a lovely and delicious way to bring in the New Year!


Well, Cindy and I are up early this morning.  I'm doing a final pack and filling my coffee thermos and about to "Hit the Road" for Florida.


Our "Mission".....go to the LSU - Perdue Citrus Bowl game in Orlando.  Again, all I can say is....GEAUX TIGERS!!


While in Florida, I'll be in exciting meetings discussing the expansion of Air Mobile.  Will write more on that later.


For now, it's time to head out the door for the 12 hour drive down to Florida.


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