January 27, 2007 - Saturday - 11:21pm - Titusville, FL (Report submitted by Joe Hurston)
Thank you for coming to Air Mobile Joe's Editorial! As always, Air Mobile is standing by, ready to deploy to the next world disaster. We'll also be returning to Haiti in the near future to bring in life-saving, clean water to desperate people. Due to security reasons, our reports on and from Haiti will be limited. As you scroll down on this link, you will get to the Report from Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia and Laos. Now, to the "ROAR TOUR"!
We have launched the "Roar Tour"! After writing the book, "Run to the Roar", it only made sense to travel across this great country and encourage folks to "Run to the Roar". In other words, don't run from the problems that occur in all of our lives. Run right at them with the Lord and you'll overcome them!
On New Year's Eve, my wife, Cindy, and I were in Millbury, MA launching "The Roar Tour". Our good friend and pastor of the "The Chapel at the Mill", Ernie White invited me to come and speak to his congregation. What a wonderful way to start a mission. Ernie White is very special to us, as he was the one who introduced Cindy to the Lord over 30 years ago. We also had the privilege to bring in the New Year by counting down the seconds to 2007! A special THANKS to Brian and Michelle Ridgeway and Southwest Airlines for getting me up to MA for the Launch of the Roar Tour!!
On Sunday, January 14, 2007, we were at the Indian River Presbyterian Church in Fort Pierce, FL. What a great church! Martha Van Cise (the Co-Author of Run to the Roar) joined me and we signed many books. It was such a joy to preach to this great congregation!
This past Sunday, January 21, 2007, Cindy and I were at University Behavorial Center in Orlando, FL. We've been Chaplains there for over 9 years. It was so cool sharing lion stories, miraculous rescues, near misses and great escapes with the patients there.
This past week, I visited with a Native American, Ray Thunderhawk. Listen to this! Ray is the head of Thunderhawk's Big Cat Rescue. His organization is based in our neighborhood. He has 66 big cats, i.e. lions, tigers, panthers, cougars etc. less than a half mile from my home. We often hear the lions and tigers roaring. It's awesome! Of course, I gave Ray a signed copy of "Run to the Roar". We discussed many aspects of the nature of lions. I look forward to many more meetings with Ray and I'm so glad that our Lord put him so close to me. I never cease to marvel at the wondrous hand of God in our lives!!
We are currently working our schedule and are excited about heading up into the New England area in the spring. This past Friday, January 26th, I had the privilege to speak at Morningside Christian school in Fort Pierce, FL. I love speaking to young people about serving the Lord on the mission field. It was a blast sharing some lion stories and the great adventure of being a Christian. I look forward to speaking with them again.
If you would like to have us come and speak to your church and deliver a powerful message on dealing with problems and challenges as well as hearing stories of great miracles, please contact our Air Mobile office. The phone number is: 321-267-7726 or you can e-mail me at: email@example.com. I look forward to hearing from you. God Bless You!!
