MISSION ACCOMPLISHED IN VIETNAM - AIR MOBILE HEADING TO CAMBODIA!
October 21, 2006 - Saturday 12:16am (Vietnam Time - 11 hours ahead of U.S. Eastern) - Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam - Report submitted by Joe Hurston - President - Air Mobile
We're wrapping up our time here in Vietnam. Just a quick glimpse of Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon). A teeming, rapid moving city of 10 million. There is perpetual motion all around us. The city is relatively clean and seems to function quite well. The roads near the city are good. We crossed the Mekong River yesterday heading out to a beautiful orphanage / school. The Mekong is a huge river, rivaling the mighty Mississippi. We've been on the Mekong in Thailand and Laos, so we're becoming quite familiar with it. We were impressed with the excellent care given to the orphans in the Orphanage in Ben Tre. Read next report below for details on deploying a Vortex Voyager in this orphanage.
Dr. Steve Henley was here during the Vietnam war as a dentist. He shared some amazing stories with us. The people of Vietnam are gracious and very friendly and courteous towards Americans. We've made some good friends here and look forward to coming back.
This evening we had dinner this evening with NGO Director (Non Government Organization), Joy Degenardt of the Degenhardt Foundation and discussed the great need for having Vortex Voyagers strategically positioned BEFORE the next disaster here in Vietnam. Now, that's the way we need to think.
Please be praying that we develop an effective and successful plan to save lives. Earlier this month, a typhoon struck Vietnam in Danang and in the Quang Nam Province (central Vietnam) and tremendous flooding occured. There are still regions that are isolated and there is a huge need for clean drinking water. Joy and her staff are reseaching this at this time, now that they have a Vortex Voyager that they can deploy.
It's so good to be able to offer such tremendous help in time of need in the service of the Lord! What a wonderful witness and testimony to the goodness of God!
Today, we head to Cambodia. We'll be servicing 2 Vortex Voyagers that were positioned by Rolf Engelhart's daughter last year. Rolf is the inventor of the Vortex Voyager. We'll also be visiting a doctor from Thailand that is working with Luka (I introduced you to Luka in my report from yesterday). We'll also be visiting an orphanage referred to us by a good friend of Barbara Walker, Peggy Ewing. We're very excited about going to Cambodia. It's cool that there are already 3 Vortex Voyagers in Cambodia and it's Air Mobile's first visit.
I'll try to send a report from Cambodia, but it's hard to say what our access to the internet will be. Better run for now. THANKS for your love, prayer and support!!
