I arrived safely on Haiti this morning. Brothers David Hamrick and Manius picked me up and we began a hectic morning of running all over Port Au Prince. David and I found a dominos pizza for lunch and man was it good. We then delivered some papers to a congressman who is also enrolled in the school of preaching. We then traveled to Pignon which was a long arduous trip through the mountains. We are staying in the mayors home here. We visited the building that has been donated to school. Tomorrow we plan on looking at the land first thing in the morning. The trip looks to be promising.

I was blessed with the opportunity to teach and present our work to the Kirbyville Church of Christ this morning. The brethren at Kirbyville have been so wonderful to myself and my family over the years. It has always been a joy to spend time with them and we always leave encouraged. I put forward to the congregation this morning that several of the works could benefit greatly from an old tractor if someone had one just collecting dust in the barn. Following services several came to me and said they would gladly donate their old tractors!!!! In a country like Haiti an old used tractor is like a new car to us in the USA. Several also came and stuck money in my pockets for the trip. It's always so encouraging to be with such wonderful people. I believe the supporters of our work are the greatest folks in the world. Thanks for all you do to keep our work going. Without our supporters we would be nothing!
As I write this I am sitting in the Miami airport awaiting my flight to Port Au Prince Haiti. I'm as excited as I have ever been to travel and work for The Lord. For the past several hours I have been reviewing my past trips and opportunities and am overwhelmed by the blessings of God in my life. I can't wait to see what He has in store for me this week. Romans 8:28

On Sunday April 28th I will be flying to the Caribbean country of Haiti. I will be traveling with Bro. David Hamrick of the World Bible Institute. I will looking at several hundred acres that is supposed to be donated to the school and we are going to put together a proposal for how we plan to used the land for a school, orphanage (possibly), church building, and a farm to support this work. We also will be meeting with several preachers who have recently been converted out of denominations and are now wanting to preach for the Lord's Church there. I will be gone only a week but please be praying for our success on our trip.
