THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES.....AUGUST 2022

8-9-22 Tuesday 6:42 AM (Eastern U.S. Time) - "Air Mobile @ Home" - In the Mountains of East TN - Report submitted by Air Mobile Joe


"LIGHT OF THE WORLD....??"


This morning, I am reminded of the Words of Jesus of how we should be...


Matthew 5:14-16
"You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.


Late last night, the news headlines blared through of the "FBI's Raid on Mar-a-Lago", the Florida residence of our former President, Donald Trump.


Cindy and I are shocked that such a raid took place.  There are many details that we do not know, but....this "RAID" seems to be a heavy-handed POLITICAL ATTACK...NOT ONLY OF DONALD TRUMP BUT ON EVERY AMERICAN!  


I must admit, Cindy and I are very angry at what is happening in our country as well as around the world.


But...what should we do?  Jesus tells us to be the 'LIGHT OF THE WORLD'.  


The first and most important thing is to PRAY!  


PRAY for our Lord's Will to be done right here on Earth...as it is in heaven.


Next, we should ask our Lord what WE SHOULD DO.  ASK OUR LORD TO USE US FOR HIS GLORY!


In America, with all of it's faults, we do have a system that allows us to VOTE!  


And yes, I know that system can be manipulated but...none the less, we can do what we can do. 


I urge you to vote your conscience on election day.  SHINE FOR JESUS!!


Oh well, I had to get this off of my mind this morning.  I do want you to know just how much we appreciate your prayer, love and support!!


Air Mobile Joe


PS - Today, at 12:50PM, I'll be a guest of Carol Henry on WPIO Radio in Titusville (via Phone) giving an update on Air Mobile.


Tune in if possible.  God bless!!

PRAISE GOD FOR GOOD DOCTORS....& PRAYER!!!


As you know, been sticking close to home, here at the Retreat Cabin, taking care of some medical issues.


Cindy's surgery and her recovery are progressing along. She's in the middle of Physical Therapy and it's a slow and painful process, but absolutely necessary.  


I'm so glad to be able to take this time at home caring for Cindy.

  

It's also a good time to take care of some of my own medical issues.  We're spending our days going from medical appointment to medical appointment.


Yes, we're very THANKFUL for good doctors!  And especially THANKFUL to you....for your prayer, love and support!!!

ARI MEETS "LAURA"....


Cindy and Ari drove to Knoxville yesterday to meet a very special actress...Melissa Gilbert, AKA "Laura Ingalls" of "Little House on the Prairie" fame.



Even got her signed autograph of Laura with her (TV) sisters.


Oh, how we enjoyed every single episode of this wonderful series.


"Little House" even inspired Ari in writing her first book..."Mansions & Mayhem".


One thing is for sure, it was a day and event (Meeting Melissa) that Ari will never forget.


Meanwhile, back at the farm, I set up and actually flew my newly acquired Mavik Air 2S drone.


Wow!  What a wonderful tool.  Now, when we travel to disaster / war zones, we'll be able to capture more of what is happening with this great drone.


So, on this beautiful Sunday morning, it's time for Church.  PRAISE GOD for the freedom to go to Church.


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

REMEMBER "THE LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRE"?



Cindy and Ari are going to the Fanboy Expo 2022 in Knoxville today.....and Ari's all dressed for the occasion.



There, they will see & meet Melissa Gilbert who played Laura Ingalls on "The Little House on the Prairie".


Of course other Actors & Actresses from this great series will be there but....seeing Melissa Gilbert will top it all.


We loved that whole series!!


And while they are there, I'll be at the Farm doing chores and...setting up my new drone (Mavik 2S) and learning how to fly it.  Looking forward to that!


So, on this lovely Saturday morning, just enjoying life here at the "Retreat Cabin". 


BTW, Yahn, our Chief Water Mule, is busy building more Air Mobile Rescuer water purifiers for our "Next Mission" to....wherever our Lord leads.


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

A QUIET DAY AT THE FARM....& MONITORING THE NEWS


Just doing chores around the farm and driving Cindy to PT (Physical Therapy) this morning.  


She's slowly and somewhat painfully, regaining use of her arm following her surgery.  THANK YOU for your prayers!


As we monitor the news from Ukraine and Taiwan...we PRAY!


These are, indeed, PERILOUS TIMES!  We all are witnessing these historic & dangerous events unfold before our very eyes.


Ukraine is enduring a brutal RUSSIAN INVASION and a devastating WAR.


Taiwan is facing, what could very likely be, a brutal INVASION from CHINA.


At any rate, literally millions are facing extremely dangerous times.


As we study the Bible, Ezekiel 37-38 (Gog of Magog)  and Revelation 16 (Kings of the East) both come alive.


Again, we believe that we are definitely in the End Times.  


No man knows the day or the hour, but we can certainly see the "Signs of the Times".


All the more reason to press in close to Jesus and seek to hear His voice and walk in obedience.


Time to take my Cindy for her PT today.  As always, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!

WE'LL SEE....


As these dangerous and historic events unfold before our eyes...we'll see what happens.


The visit to Taiwan by Nancy Pelosi certainly stirred up China who may well use this event to invade Taiwan.  We'll see.


The unjust and terrible war between Russia and Ukraine is grinding on and literally millions are being displaced and in extreme harms way.  Where this leads?.....we'll see.


Above all, we need to PRAY for God's will to be done on this earth, as it is in Heaven.


I'm so glad that Jesus taught us how to pray!

Our main prayer, here at the "Retreat Cabin" in the mountains of East Tennessee is..."Lord, here we are, use us for your glory"!


For now, we're staying close to home.  Cindy is recovering from surgery and our 'mission' for now is to stay home and be healed.


So, on this beautiful day that our Lord has made....we're rejoicing and being glad in it.


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

A TIME TO STAND!


Well, Nancy Pelosi did it.  She went to Taiwan in spite of strong threats from China.


Here's more - NANCY PELOSI ARRIVES IN TAIWAN!


BTW, this Newsmax article does a pretty good job (in my humble opinion) of capturing the important elements of this historic visit by Pelosi.


Be sure and know, there is A TIME TO STAND!!


So, as we see these historic and extremely dangerous events unfold we PRAY for God's will to be done!


It's time for me to take my Cindy to Physical Therapy.  As always, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!

PERILOUS TIMES....WE ARE THERE


As the world watches Nancy Pelosi, and whether or not she lands in Taiwan, I am reminded of just how close we are "skating on the edge".


These are indeed PERIOUS TIMES.  China will respond to this, if she lands in Taiwan.  

Just what they will do remains to be seen....perhaps by the end of today!


Here is what might happen, according Bloomberg News - THIS IS HOW CHINA COULD HIT BACK OVER PELOSI'S VISIT


These dangerous events are unfolding before our very eyes!


Folks, these are, indeed PERILOUS TIMES!  


I urge you to go to MATTHEW 24 to see what Jesus has to say about the End Times!


Here is a link to Matthew 24.  Just take a look at what Jesus tells us will happen in the END TIMES and compare this great Chapter to what is happening today.  MATTHEW 24 KJV


NOTE:  JESUS DOESN'T TELL US WHAT "MIGHT HAPPEN" IN THE END TIMES, HE TELLS US WHAT WILL HAPPEN!!


So, Cindy and I await what could happen by the end of today and we PRAY!!  


This we know, GOD'S WILL.... WILL BE DONE!!


So, wherever you are today, we urge you to take some time and PRAY as the world careens closer and closer to WORLD WAR III!! 


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

BACK AT THE FARM.....


Had an incredible time with Barbara and all those former "Orphans" on Saturday in New Castle, Indiana.  


So many wonderful stories of rescues and God's Amazing Grace.



I am so glad to have brought Ariana with me.


She certainly loves and appreciates Barbara, but....seeing so many who have been so blessed by this brave and determined "Lady of God" only made her love Barb even more.  


She had a wonderful time with Barb and the other adoptees.


Just read on down for more details of this glorious day.


Today was Ari's first day of school.  We're so proud of her.  She is an Honor Student and doing so well at Hancock County High School.!


Time to get my Cindy to Physical Therapy.  She certainly appreciates your precious prayer, love and support as do I!!

HONORING OUR LORD & "THE LADY IN THE BLUE DRESS"

Yesterday, Ariana and I drove to New Castle, Indiana to honor our Lord and Barbara Walker.


This amazing Missionary has arranged over 3000 adoptions of Haitian Children, including our Ariana and Juliet Joy.  


Every year, a group in Indiana hosts the "Orphan Reunion".  


Folks come from far and wide to be with Barbara on this day.  


Well over 100 came out to honor Barb and our Lord!



We had a wonderful set-up to demonstrate the Air Mobile Rescuer.


The kids in Barb's Orphanage drank water from  Air Mobile Rescuers since 2005.  


BTW, this shot of kids drinking was taken right after the terrible 2010 earthquake.


I'm so thankful for being able to bring Ariana to this wonderful event.


Well, it's time to pack up and head back to our "Retreat Cabin" and my Cindy.


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

GOING TO AN "ORPHAN REUNION".....


Our dear friend, Barbara Walker is honored each year by an Orphan Reunion at the Cornerstone Retreat Center in New Castle, Indiana.


Barb has arranged the rescue and adoption of over 3000 Haitian children, including our Juliet Joy and Ariana Grace.  Words can't express our deep gratitude to this amazing Lady of God!



Last year I attended this wonderful event and gave each "former orphan" ( 60+ ) a ride in the Little Donkey.


This year, I'll be showing the Air Mobile Rescuer water purifier and signing "Run to the Roar".


Meanwhile, my Cindy is doing well through the tough Physical Therapy following her shoulder surgery.  THANK YOU for your prayer!!


Time to hit the road for the Orphan Reunion.  THANK YOU, as always for your precious prayer, love and support!!!

DUCK KINGDOM....& A NEW TARP


OK, I must admit, there are times that I get up, pour a cup of coffee and sit at my computer and have absolutely no idea what to write in this "Rambling Blog".


Then, I head out to our Duck Kingdom and look for a little inspiration there. 



Then, I remembered our latest acquisition yesterday.  A 12'X20' tarp to enhance the duck home.  Such a simple thing, but what great joy it brought to our ducks.


You know, often, it's the simple things in life that bring such great joy.


Oh, I get the report on the War in Ukraine and how terrible things are in Haiti and the 7.3 earthquake in the Philippines...etc. etc.  


I want to do more but....there are times to just "retreat" and enjoy life.


As I've said, we'll be back in the saddle and heading back to some "hot spot" soon enough.


For now, I'll just enjoy the new tarp and the happy ducks and spend this precious time with my Cindy..


This morning, I'll be bringing my sweet Cindy to Physical Therapy (PT), which is pretty painful, but needful to keep that shoulder moving in the right direction.


I want you to know just how much I appreciate your wandering down this "Road of Life" with us and especially THANK YOU for your invaluable prayer, love and support!!

STUDY TIME.....IN BETWEEN


Between driving my Cindy for Physical Therapy and the many chores that a farm requires and working on and solving technical issues, I've been studying the "Signs of the Times".


Folks, there is no doubt in my mind that Jesus is coming back to this earth and I personally believe, it will be sooner than later.


Jesus tells us to "LOOK UP& LIFT UP YOUR HEADS, FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH!"


There is not doubt, between earthquakes and plagues and scorching hot temps and Wars and rumors of Wars, and so much more, that things are truly shaking world-wide.


What are we to do?  Keep our eyes fixed on Jesus and seek to obey Him and be sensitive to His voice.  THANK GOD for the Holy Ghost to lead us through these perilous times.



Our Lord tells us.... FEAR NOT, FOR I AM WITH YOU!!


Just thought I'd share these encouraging words with you today.


Time to go mow a field and ponder the "Signs of the Times.


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

IT'S GOOD TO BE HOME.....


Knowing that, soon enough, Air Mobile will launch another "Mission", most likely to Ukraine, I'm truly enjoying my time here at the "Retreat Cabin" and with my sweet Cindy.


She's progressing along nicely in her surgery recovery.  The Physical Therapy (PT) is going well.


THANK YOU AGAIN for your prayers for Cindy.


Remember my old Dodge Ram 2500 that's 22 years old with 400,000+ miles on it?  

Well, the old Dodge began to heat up when climbing mountains.


My good mechanic, Beau, found a pin-hole leak that caused the overheating.


Not sure, but most likely that's the original radiator and it lived a nice long life.   


Will pick up a new radiator today and give the Old Dodge new life.  Still has plenty of life, especially in the Cummins 5.9 Diesel engine (a "bullet-proof" engine).


So, it's time for me to drive Cindy for her PT.  So glad I can be here to help my sweetheart.


Folks, I sure do appreciate your precious prayer, love and support!!!

WE WON THE BATTLE....& HOLDING THE "ENEMY" AT BAY


Yesterday, Cindy and I were able to harvest the large ears of corn, which were untouched, by those "Rascal Raccoons".


We are able to leave the smaller ears that are just getting bigger  and sweeter.


Of course, I've been told that eventually...the Marauding Raccoons will figure out the "Defense Mechanism".


Dave Walen, our "Risk-Management Attorney", said given time, they'll find Sunglasses & Rain Coats.  



But until then....the corn is growing and the "Rascal Raccoons" are being held at bay.


So, just another exciting day at the Air Mobile Retreat Cabin and Victory Garden in the Mountains of East Tennessee.


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

WINNING THE BATTLE OF THE RACCOONS & CORN


Cindy and I were determined to "win this battle".  Last year, it was a MASSACRE.  


Those rascals ate every single ear of corn and left us nothing but SHUCKS!


This morning, I went out and inspected our "Security System" (Motion Activated Lights & Sprinklers).  


It worked beautifully!  Not a single ear was lost, since the Security System has been put in place.



I did a sample harvest and was pleased to say that the ears are beautiful!


We'll begin the harvesting later today.


This morning, Cindy and I are heading to the Physical Therapist.  BTW, she's progressing slightly ahead of schedule.  PRAISE GOD!!


Well, it's time to run.  As always, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support....in the little things and the big things!!

JOE & CINDY BATTLE SOME WILEY RACCOONS!


Last year, just days before "harvest", the raccoons got in and ate every single ear of corn (over 100).


This year, just before "harvest", a "Raccoon Recon" group cased out our garden and took a few samples.



We had to do something to protect our crop of sweet corn.



So....armed with a Motion-Activated light on each corner of the garden and 3 "Critter Chasers" (motion activated sprinklers), we went into the night, hopefully prepared for those "Wiley Raccoons".


Well, the real test would be....would the corn still be standing this morning??


I headed out to the garden early this morning, and....VICTORY.... for the moment.  


The LIGHTS AND SPRINKLERS kept those critters out of our Victory Garden!



We just need another 2 days for our sweet corn to be ready for harvest.


So far....so good.


Now, here's a follow up on our "bad duck feed" from yesterday's Blog.  

 

I did go to Tractor Supply (TSC) with the 2 empty bags of duck feed.  


I showed the TSC Store Manager the empty bags and even showed her my Daily Blog. She readily gave me a refund. 


They had one bag of duck feed left.  We agreed to open it up in the store and see if it was good.  We did, and it was.


As I was checking out, the Store Manager asked if I could take a photo of her and her Associate with the good bag feed.  I gladly agreed.


Now, LIVE from the "Retreat Cabin", we're getting ready for Church and just enjoying life here in the Mountains of East TN.


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

WE LOVE OUR DUCKS....A TRUE DUCK TAIL


Went out to feed the ducks this morning.


Usually, they run up and gobble up the feed.  They just stayed away.  

Hmmmm.  Something was wrong.  So glad that the ducks would not eat it.



Opened up a bag of duck feed and it was bad.  


So....opened up the second bag and it too was bad.


I gathered up about 100 pounds of feed and threw it away, far away from my dear ducks.  


Mmmmm, need good food for our sweet ducks as they give us delicious eggs every day.


So...this morning, I'm going to Tractor Supply with empty "bad feed bags" and let them know and...get a refund as well as new duck feed that has been inspected.  


Oh well, that's about all that's going on this morning here at the "Retreat Cabin".


If you have ducks, be sure they are eating good feed.  My moral for the day.


Time to head out and get my ducks some good feed.


Sure appreciate your precious prayer, love and support in the little things, as well as the big things!!  GOD BLESS YOU!!

A "MISTY" MORNING IN THE "SMOKEY'S".....



Live, from our Victory Garden, there's a heavy mist in our valley.  Guess that's part of the reason it's called the "Smokey Mountains".


I'll be taking Cindy to Physical Therapy (PT) this morning.  She's doing quite well in her PT.


Meanwhile, my heart has settled down to a nice steady beat. We're keeping a close eye on my vitals to be sure there's no negative interaction  with my meds.


Again, we're so THANKFUL for good medical care.  And....truth is, I'm really enjoying this stay close to the "Retreat Cabin".  It's good for the spirt, soul and body.


Folks, I'm so THANKFUL to have you wandering down this path of life with me.  So appreciate your precious prayer, love and support!!!

LESSONS FROM "PT"


This morning, Cindy shared with me, some valuable lessons, that she's seeing through her Physical Therapy (PT) as related to faith.



The old adage, if you don't use it...you'll lose it.  


Of course the shoulder surgery required her arm and shoulder to be pretty immobile so the operation would succeed.



Remember this shot, shortly after Cindy's surgery and that great big sling?


Now, she's having to move it and regain the use of it...slowly, and painfully, but surely.


THANK GOD for good Physical Therapists!


In many ways, it is the same with our FAITH.  If we don't use it, we will surely become less proficient and eventually lose it.


THANK GOD FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT, Who reminds us and convicts us to EXERCISE OUR FAITH.


In our Home Church, Little Mulberry Baptist, we're in the middle of VBS (Vacation Bible School).  


It is wonderful to see the church reaching out to young people in our community with the GOOD NEWS OF JESUS.

 

Just thought I'd share this with you today.  May I encourage you to look for ways to SHARE YOUR FAITH & EXERCISE THOSE "FAITH MUSCLES" TODAY!


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

DEMONSTRATE THE AIR MOBILE RESCUER TO VBS (VACTION BIBLE SCHOOL)


Last night, I was given the privilege to demonstrate the Air Mobile Rescuer to our Home Church's VBS.


The Theme is using your Creative Gifts to Serve the Lord.  


I love showing how powerful the Rescuer is to purify very dirty water.  


In this shot, I took off my shoe and put my foot into the bucket of very dirty water.


Then, I took a long drink....after it ran through the Rescuer.  



Then, to further demonstrate the powerful Rescuer,  I took a baggie full of dirt, horse manure and coyote droppings and then ran that "witches brew" through the Rescuer and drink it.


The kids loved it!!


Who knows, we may even inspire some these young people to get "Creative" and even go the Mission Field to serve our Lord Jesus.


BTW, my heart has settled down and for that I'm THANKFUL!


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

LITTLE DID I KNOW......


Yesterday morning, Cindy and I went out to run a few errands before the storms hit.


As I was driving through the mountains, I felt just a slight "fluttering" in my chest.  I asked Cindy to check my pulse and she said...."Go straight to the next Urgent Care."


Within minutes, I was hooked up to an EKG and the results were....ATRIAL FIBRILLATION!


I was urged to go to the ER with the EKG results in-hand.  Cindy and I prayed for healing and wisdom.



We pulled into the ER at the Hospital in Sneedville.  They IMMEDIATELY took me and hooked me up for another EKG and drew blood.  


BTW, they were GREAT!  By the time the second EKG results came in, my heart had settled down and things were near normal.


Then began the investigation by Dr. Bechtel.  Recently, I changed my Blood Pressure medication due to some adverse side-effects.


Dr. Bechtel did a wonderful investigation of everything I was taking and found a few other potential conflicts.  


Meanwhile, remaining hooked up to the EKG, all levels came normal.  I actually went to sleep while lying there.


Folks, I know that I say this quite often but...we have an amazing medical system in America.  Not perfect but.....PRETTY DARN GOOD!


Without giving any details, while Cindy and I were in the ER, we heard the medical team treat others, with or without money to pay, with the same love, care and excellence.


After 5 hours, we were given our discharge instructions and headed home.  What a day!!


This morning, I've taken my BP and EKG (with Kardia) and all is normal.  PRAISE GOD for answered PRAYER!!

THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM....



Checked the radar this morning and saw a line of storms heading our way.


We're that little blue dot that I'm pointing to.


We can certainly use the rain, but pray this storm doesn't do any damage.



I love the WX just before a storm hits.  It's full of  extra ozone in the air and there's a certain "wildness" in the atmosphere.  


So, we'll batten down the hatches and get ready for a little storm today.


Cindy's continuing to do well in her Physical Therapy and we THANK YOU for your prayers for her during this time of recovery & healing.


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

CONTRAST......


I can't help but think about what is going on in "Hot Spots" around the globe...in the midst of this lovely and peaceful place tucked away in the Mountains of East Tennessee.



I must admit, I do feel a bit guilty about enjoying this place of healing and tranquility....so much.


So, I find myself saying...."Get over it.  You'll be back in the battle, in the saddle, sooner than you realize.  So....ENJOY IT while you can"!

It's an incredibly beautiful morning and we're getting ready for Church.  That's another freedom that we're extremely THANKFUL FOR.


Please bear with me as I say every single day and yes, truly mean with all of my heart...THANK YOU for your faithful prayer, love and support!!!

WANDERING THROUGH PROVERBS....


From time to time, I open up the Book of Proverbs to whatever day it is.  Being as there are 31 Proverbs, every day of the month is covered.  


For example, today is July 16th, so....I open up to Proverbs 16 and just see what our Lord has for us.


When I got to Proverbs 16:16, King Solomon urges us to seek God's Wisdom & Insight rather than gold & silver.


As we navigate through this life, we often find ourselves needing God's direction.  


So, I thought I'd share Proverbs 16 with you for a dosage of God's Wisdom and Insight.  


PROVERBS 16 KJV


May I encourage you to take about 10 minutes, pour yourself a cup of coffee (if you're so inclined) and read Proverbs 16 slowly, thoughtfully & prayerfully.  I believe that God will BLESS you as you do.


I wanted to let you know that my Cindy is doing well in her recovery from shoulder surgery.  


Her Physical Therapist (PT) said that she is progressing nicely and responding positively.  THANK YOU again for your prayers for Cindy.


Today, I'll be back in the Air Mobile office receipting donations and answering letters.  I love doing this, as it puts me closer to you.


I just can't THANK YOU enough for your faithful prayer, love and support!!

ANOTHER PEACEFUL, HEALING DAY



Just looking out over our lovely valley brings peace & healing to my soul & body.


Our garden is fruitful and we're letting perennials take the lead, as Cindy and I are pretty beat up and gardening & weeding takes a lot of energy & flexibility.


So...we're letting the sunflowers be the sunflowers, along with the strawberries and blueberries.  Our corn is coming along nicely.


Today, I'll be working in the Air Mobile Office catching up on our correspondence and sending out receipt letters THANKING you, our generous supporters.


We are building up our inventory of Air Mobile Rescuers for our "next mission"....wherever that might be.


In the meantime, we're just enjoying the daylights out of our lovely and peaceful "Retreat Cabin & Farm".

A "SOMEWHAT" GOOD REPORT....WITH A TOUCH OF REALITY


I am pleased to report that Cindy's shoulder surgery is healing nicely.  She's still dealing  pain, but overall the report is good.


As we looked at the X-rays of both shoulders, it is evident that she'll need to have the same surgery on the other shoulder...once the first one heals up.  


This is going to be a long and painful process and again, we so appreciate your continued prayers for Cindy.


And....concerning my painful knee, that is bone-on-bone along with 4 bone spurs (OUCH!)...somewhere, in between Cindy's healing shoulder and her next surgery, we'll try to slip in a knee replacement for me.


It just goes with the territory of getting old and subjecting oneself to injuries along the way.


It just kind of sneaks up on you...and happens rather rapidly.


Again, we're standing and believing for God's Healing, but we're also very THANKFUL for good medical care.


In the meantime, Yahn, our Chief Water Mule is making Air Mobile Rescuer water purifiers and we're getting ready for our next mission....after we heal up a bit.


Well, it's time to head out to the pharmacy and get our meds (LOL).  As always, THANK YOU for your faithful prayer, love and support.

A "DOCTOR" DAY....


Both Cindy and I will be going to our Doctors today. Cindy will meet with her Surgeon to see how the shoulder operation is progressing.


I'll be meeting with my orthopedic Doctor to get some help for my knee (from an old motorcycle injury).  Anyone who has traveled with me, knows how that old knee hurts me.... each step of the way.


Of course, we're standing firm for healing that we both may serve our Lord with greater strength.



You know, I'm just overwhelmed & THANKFUL with how good our Medical Care is here in the U.S.  


Oh, I know it can certainly be improved, but still, having traveled the world and seen so much lack, again....I'm just THANKFUL for what we have.


Well, it's time to head out to our appointments.  As always, THANK YOU for your greatly appreciated prayer, love and support!!

Again, THANK YOU for your prayers!!!


In the meantime, we're following the Ukraine / Russia War and it appears that a brutal RUSSIAN OFFENSIVE has begun.

I WOKE UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT & FOUND....


Since I first got saved, over 50 years ago, I became a student of "End Time Prophesy".


I've known, for these many years, that Russia plays into many Prophesy's and especially in the Old Testament Book of Ezekiel.


Well, last night, I woke up in the wee hours and opened up Ezekiel 38-39 and came to the realization anew that....WE ARE THERE!


Having traveled into the Ukraine / Russia War zone multiple times, and studying just what the Bible has to say about this, my conclusion is....the foundation is being laid for the Second Coming of Jesus.


Here is a link to Ezekiel 38-39 and here is a clue....Gog of Magog is, in my humble opinion, speaking about Russia and the ultimate invasion of Israel (which has not happened yet, but could soon occur).


EZEKIEL 38-39 KJV


I encourage you to read these 2 chapters and tell me what you think.


Folks, since I first got saved, I've believed that Jesus is Coming back but...things are certainly ACCELERATING! 


This is the time for us to set our eyes on Jesus and seek to serve Him with all of our hearts!


For the time being, I'm staying close to home, here at the Retreat Cabin, and taking care of my Cindy who is recovering from  painful shoulder surgery.  


I will return to Poland / Ukraine after she has regained her strength and healing.


BTW, THANK YOU for your prayers for Cindy!


In the meantime, we are building Air Mobile Rescuer water purifiers and getting ready for our next deployment to the war zone region.....with or without me, depending upon the situation.


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

While in Church yesterday, Pastor John reminded us that the greatest FREEDOM of all is to be FREE FROM SIN!  



Jesus PAID a debt He did not owe.....because we owed a debt we could not PAY!


Our FREEDOM to WORSHIP GOD & SERVE HIM is our greatest gift to Americans.  May we never forget that.

SLIPPING INTO UKRAINE WITH 5 RESCUERS....




Yesterday, we loaded up the Rescuers and headed to the Border Crossing.  This would be a delicate operation.



We "recruited" Jorge of Operation Blessing (OB) to help us "push" the 5 Rescuers across the border between Poland and Ukraine.  THANK YOU OB & JORGE!


At the halfway point between Poland & Ukraine, we stopped for a breather and later, saw the extraordinary beam of light behind us...it was kind of like the "Pillar of Fire".


After passing Customs & Immigration for both Poland and Ukraine....we exited onto the streets of Poland.  We then waited for our driver named Max to pick us up and take us to Lviv.



We THANKED Jorge for helping to "push" those 5 Rescuers across the Border.


He then went back across the border to Poland.  THANKS again OB for your help.


We then took the hour drive from the Border Crossing to the town of LVIV, a place of refuge for many Ukranians.



Along the road, we saw evidence of defense with home-made "Tank Traps" along the way.



We then worked our way through downtown, where we saw many images of the courage and determination of the Ukraine people in the fight for their life.


Our driver, Max, then pulled up to a very discreet location (no details given).  We found ourselves in a deceptively large warehouse full of food and clothes and medical supplies of donated goods for the FRONT LINES & EASTERN towns engaged in the the fierce battle.



We placed the 5 Rescuers at the front of the line to be sent to battle.


Operators would then retrieve the Rescuers and return to the "BATTLE".  


PRAISE GOD!!  We with your help and God's grace delivered these 5 Rescuers.....5 DOWN & 5 TO GO!!


Afterwards, Max took us to a classic Urkrainian restaurant where we enjoyed a lovely Ukrainian meal.


Max then took us back for the hour drive to the Borders Crossing.  Billy and I worked our way back across the border and back to little room in the Border town.


It was a long, but very fruitful day!

Billy and I reached the actual border crossing yesterday.  Things have certainly changed since Cindy and I were here several weeks ago.


Almost all of the Relief Organizations that would welcome the Ukranian refugees have left, what I call "Love Row".  Here's a bit more:  


Many of these organizations are still in operation here helping Refugees, just no longer at this Border Crossing.


Billy had some thoughts at the Border Crossing:


After leaving the Border Crossing, we visited with John of Operation Blessing (OB).


OB is very much continuing their great humanitarian work by bringing in tractor load after tractor load of food / medicine and other  vital supplies into war torn Ukraine.


Meanwhile, Billy and I are getting critical information about where to most effectively place the 10 Air Mobile Rescuers.  Today, we'll be continuing that quest.

We have 10 Air Mobile Rescuer water purifiers on-board and are very THANKFUL that this will bring our total to 40 Rescuers for Ukraine.  PRAISE GOD!!


While we were fueling in Titusville, I looked across the parking lot and saw a car that looked exactly like my son, Peter's.  I was a bit hesitant to walk up to this car, as the driver might have been shaken.


So....I called Peter and asked if he was in the Cumberland Farm parking lot.  His somewhat astonished answer was...."Yeah, why do you ask"?


I then, walked up to his car and.. 
He was indeed pleasantly shocked to see me at this "chance" (not really) meeting on "Father's Day".  

It was perfect timing and so good to see my son.  


I believe our Lord Jesus arranged this perfectly timed meeting.

ON THE ROAD AGAIN....


Up early and doing the final "Packing" for our "Next Mission" to Poland / Ukraine.


I'll be joined on this "Mission" with Billy Stair.  I first met Billy when he delivered to Air Mobile some critical medical equipment for Haiti.


Billy's group had been trying to get this equipment to a very isolated village in Haiti for several years.  Due to heavy conflict and "Gang Violence", the equipment could not be delivered until....


Well, long story short, last week, we loaded up that equipment and I'm blessed and pleased to say....IT HAS BEEN DELIVERED!!  


As Billy found out more about what Air Mobile was doing in behalf of Ukraine, he decided to get on-board the "Next Mission" and in just an hour or so, he'll be pulling up to the Air Mobile Retreat Cabin to join me.


As I've said so many times, over the years, the quote from my dear first Pastor, Roy Stockstill...."Remember son, God knows how to deploy His troops"!


We'll be driving to South Florida today and boarding a flight to Poland tomorrow.


So...the Adventure continues.  We'll be bringing 10 more Air Mobile Rescuers to Ukraine, bringing our total to 40!  PRAISE GOD!!


Time to hit the road and, as always, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!!


Oh....I almost forgot.... HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!!!

PACKING.....


Well, I find myself getting ready to "Hit the Road Again...Again".  Time to pack the tubs.


We have 10 more Air Mobile Rescuers ready to go to Ukraine via Poland.



Yahn Gray, our Chief Water Mule, brought the units here to the cabin this morning.



I'm so THANKFUL for Yahn.  He builds a great Rescuer!


GREAT JOB YAHN!!


As long as I have the strength and have Rescuers funded, we'll keep going!


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


Now, on another note, my Cindy, while putting in the garden & spreading fine gravel for our horses & donkeys, tore a tendon in her shoulder....'OUCH'!


She has surgery scheduled to repair the shoulder when I return from Poland / Ukraine.  


Cindy has strongly encouraged me to make this next "Mission".  She is, without a doubt, my awesome Proverbs 31 "Lady of God"!!


PLEASE PRAY for Cindy, as well as for this "Next Mission".


GOD BLESS YOU & THANKS AGAIN for our prayer, love and support!!!

HOME....SAFE!!

What a relief to drive up to our little "Retreat Cabin" last night around midnight.


So glad to see my sweet Cindy including all our critters....horses, donkeys, ducks, dogs etc. etc.


This last Haiti / Dominican Mission has come to a close and I can say with our Lord's help and grace..."Mission(s) Accomplished!"


There were moments, while in Haiti, that we could have been kidnapped but....I know that our Lord had dispatched some BIG Angels in our behalf.


Well, I'll be home for a few days before...."Our Next Mission".  It may even be back to Ukraine, but things are still developing.


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

WORKING MY WAY HOME....


It was good to get out of Haiti when we did.  The evidence of intense "Gang Activity" was every where.  Our Lord did protect us.  


Dave and I flew the Little Donkey to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic to give our good friend and Brother, Rolf a ride home.


You may recall that Rolf Engelhard is the "Genius" who invented the heart of the Air Mobile Rescuer water purifier.


So, we got to the Puerto Plata airport yesterday morning and worked through all of the paper work (Customs, Immigration etc. etc) and just needed to fuel the Little Donkey for the 900 mile direct flight back to the U.S.



The fuel truck only had enough fuel for half way home.  One thing was for sure...we were not going to leave the Dominican Republic until we had a FULL load of fuel.


We prayed and several hours later...the fuel truck showed up with enough fuel to top the Little Donkey off.  PRAISE GOD!


BTW, I personally like to fuel our little bird's 14 fuel tanks.



Once topped off, it was off to the U.S.  
So glad we could give Rolf a ride.


Again, our Lord gave us a smooth and clear ride home.


Now, back in the U.S. in Florida, it's time for 12 hour drive home to my Cindy and our sweet little farm.


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

SLIPPING OUT OF HAITI.....


We delivered the critical medical supplies to Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) who will then transport them to an extremely isolated medical clinic in the mountains of Haiti. 


Then, Dave I "SLIPPED" out of Haiti in Ti Burik to the peaceful shores of Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic.


I must admit, it was a relief to fly out of Haiti...the Number 1 Kidnap Capital of the World (according to the U.S. Embassy).


There, we met our dear friend and Brother in Christ, Rolf Engelhard, the inventor of the UV Module of the Air Mobile Rescuer.


We're going to give Rolf a lift back to the U.S.


So, today, we'll head back to the U.S. and get ready for...."The Next Mission"....wherever our Lord leads.


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

A DASH TO HAITI.....


Yesterday morning, Dave Walen and I topped off the Little Donkey and took to the air bound for Haiti.



We had on-board critical Medical Equipment that had been waiting to be delivered for several years.  


PRAISE GOD...with HIS HELP, we're delivering the goods!!


We were also able to deliver 2 Air Mobile Rescuers to a Catholic Girls School.  So good to bring them CLEAN WATER!!  


Upon landing, we could see evidence of the "Haitian Gangs" everywhere.  We must be careful to go where we need to go with our Lord's protection.


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

GETTING READY.....& STANDING  BY


Now that Dave Walen and I are in Florida, there is plenty to do to get ready for...."The Next Mission".


We are awaiting "clearance" to launch and will likely, just take it easy and gather up the supplies and.... wait.


In the meantime, we've been monitoring the developments in the Ukraine War.


This is shaping up to be a long and brutal war.  WE PRAY for all in path of this insane and cruel war.  We also await our "Clearance" from our Lord to go back to Ukraine.


So, on this beautiful Sunday morning in sunny Florida....we stand by.


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

DANCING AROUND STORMS TO MEET AN OLD FRIEND....


Yesterday, I flew the Little Donkey to Orlando for a scheduled inspection of the aircraft Static System.


There were storms on all quadrants.  It required nimble maneuvers to work around these quickly brewing thunder bumpers.


 


There, I met with Troy Webb, the owner of Orlando Aircraft Services.


Troy's Dad, John Webb began doing the avionics work on our aircraft over 40 years ago. 


Now, his son, Troy is continuing the excellent service to keep the Little Donkey "Squawking & Talking" well.


On the short flite back to Titusville, I saw another storm cell settling right over the field and the visibility went down to zero zero.


I just circled south of the field for about 30 minutes until that bad boy moved on allowing me to land.


After landing, headed to my son Christian's home for dinner.  So good seeing he and Ann Marie my grand kids.  


After dinner, Christian and his son Rhythm helped me put the Little Donkey away in the hangar.


Today, my good friend and GREAT WATER MULE & PILOT, Dave Walen and I will prepare for the "Next Mission"....wherever that might be.


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

LITTLE RED FLAT...


After a long, long day of driving and dealing with a flat (disintegrated) tire on the Little Red Trailer, I finally laid my weary head down at 3:30 this morning.


After 2 good cups of coffee this morning, it's time to head to the airport and fly the Little Donkey to Orlando for another scheduled inspection.


Time to keep the ball rolling and get that Little Donkey "Ready for Action"!


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

ON THE ROAD AGAIN....GETTING READY FOR HURRICANE SEASON


We filled the Little Red Trailer with critical medical equipment, as well a couple of Air Mobile Rescuer water purifiers and headed on down to Florida.


Hurricane Season has already begun and the Forecasters are calling for an "Active Season".



It's also time to get "Ti Burik" (The Little Donkey) ready for..."Whatever Mission that lies ahead".


Will be completing some inspections & doing some test flights as well.


Oh, I've missed this sweet little bird.  For those of you who are new to the "Rambling Blog", The Little Donkey is an amazing tool to get into hard to reach places.


This Turbo Cessna 337 has a service ceiling of 30,000' allowing us to fly high.  It has 14 fuel tanks giving us incredible range.  It stalls at 46 knots giving us short field take-off and landings to squeeze into those hard to reach places.


So, time to head on down to Florida.  As I say every single day and mean with all of my heart....THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!

AIR MOBILE ON THE MOVE...AGAIN


Today, we'll be heading back to Florida to get some critical medical equipment delivered.


The little red trailer, that our dear Brother Doug (who has gone on to be with the Lord) built and donated to us is still rolling and being used by our Lord.


We sure miss Doug.  You know, thinking of Doug brings me to the memory of so many, who have stood with us over the years and helped us in so many ways.


Well, it's time to do the final load and head on down to Florida.


Stay tuned...another "Mission" is unfolding.


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

MOVING PIECES....


As we plan our "Next Mission(s)", there are a lot of "moving pieces" on the board.


The most important thing, in these planning stages is SECURITY for the teams to get in and get out safely and deliver the ability to make dirty contaminated water CLEAN!


There is also critical medical equipment that needs to be delivered to other "Hot Spots", such as Haiti and beyond.


I'm THANKFUL for the "Retreat Cabin" to make these plans and launch our missions from this lovely and peaceful location.


We'll be hitting the road soon for our "Next Mission" and as always, we covet your precious prayer, love and support!!

DUCK ENCOUNTER.....



One of the joys here is to just sit and watch our ducks.  We've recently added 7 new ducks and it's fun watching them interact with the older ones.


Meanwhile, we're gearing up for our "Next Mission".  There's so much turmoil and suffering going on in this world.


Often, our struggle is just knowing where we should go and when we should go there.  


That's when it's time to... 

TRUST IN THE LORD / LEAN ON HIM & HE SHALL DIRECT OUR PATH.   Proverbs 3:5-6


Just want you to know how much we appreciate your prayer, love and support!!!

SOON ENOUGH....


In the peaceful quiet of the "Retreat Cabin" here in the Mountains of East TN, we're planning our "Next Mission(s)".


In reading the headlines on Ukraine, my heart breaks. After 100 days of War, the people of Ukraine are suffering untold misery.  


WE PRAY!!  

Here's more - AFTER 100 DAYS OF WAR, UKRAINE IS RESOLVED TO TAKE IT'S LAND BACK FROM RUSSIA


We know that "soon enough" we'll return there.


Meanwhile, on this Sunday morning, we're getting ready for Church and for that we rejoice.


Our "Batteries" are being recharged in this lovely place.


May we ever be THANKFUL for the freedom and peace that we enjoy here.


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

A TIME TO THROW IN THE TOWEL....


When Cindy and I bought the Little Retreat Cabin farm 11 years ago, we got an old 1990 White Lawn Tractor thrown into the deal.


Now, I love that old lawn tractor.  Have kept it going all these years.  



But finally, it was time to turn it out to pasture (actually put it in our old barn), and turn the job over to a new, highly engineered Zero Turn 54" Husqvarna.


When I first got on this "wicked fast" and highly maneuverable lawn tractor...well, let's just say I took it very easy and even then barely escaped an accident or two.


After a couple of acres, I'm finally getting the hang of it.  WOW!  What a machine.


Oh, I'll probably change the broken belt and put gas extender into the tank and pull it out from time to time and just bring back some memories of 11 years of lawn service from the old White.


Life goes on at the "Retreat Cabin" and, if you're wondering, we've got a couple of "Missions" brewing.  No telling where we'll end up.


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

BACK AT THE FARM....


When Cindy and I returned from our "Mission to help Ukraine", we were greeted by 7 baby ducks.  



Now, we have a dozen ducks 5 adults & 7 babies.  Not only do they give us delicious eggs, but they bring us joy.  They're a blast just watching.


So, until we launch our "Next Mission", we'll just enjoy life here on our little farm.


Yesterday, we had dinner with our dear friend and Sister in Christ, Barbara Walker.  


Recently, Barb and her family moved here to Tennessee, less than an hour from us.  It's just great having them so near.


Well, it's time to get on the chores.  As always, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!

A QUARTER OF A CENTURY AGO...


Our dear Lord gave Cindy and I a wonderful gift 25 years ago...Peter James Hurston.


Our schedule worked out perfectly for us to stop into Titusville, FL on Peter's 25th birthday.



We celebrated with a lovely dinner at Pier 220 on the Indian River.


We then hit the road for the final leg of our journey and the completion of the 3rd Mission to assist the Ukraine people with CLEAN WATER!


We drove abut 6 hours and found a nice little hotel somewhere in South Carolina.  


We're definitely feeling a bit of Jet Lag from the 6 hour time difference between Poland-France / Tennessee.


We're so THANKFUL to have brought in a total of 30 Air Mobile Rescuers for Ukraine.  


We were also able to complete a life-long dream of my Cindy by spending a bit of glorious time in Southern France and also meeting some dear friends along the way.


Well, here we are just about 6 hours away from our sweet "Retreat Cabin" in the Mountains of East Tennessee.


Soon, we'll be home and...already, our "Next Mission" is being discussed.


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