Island Hopping

Two team members (Joseph & Pastor Jacob) teach
the village about HIV-AIDS. They educate as
well as dispel myths. All are challenge to care
and love for those with this terrible disease.

It's just past 2pm this Saturday afternoon, here in Gabon. The kids and Alace have just returned from participating with the mobile medical clinic with the social outreach program of the local C&MA churches. They set up shop in a village outside of the capital city of Libreville and were busy from start to finish! The clinics focus on health education, basic checkups (blood pressure, height/weight check, eye check, etc.), consultations, and pharmacy. Pastor Jacob is typically there to provide spiritual counseling.

I greeted them over at our house and then returned to do a couple projects, here in my office, when I noticed that.... BRIAN IS BACK IN THE SKIES OVER THE ATLANTIC!!! Today's flight will take him from the Azores Islands to the Canary Islands. We hope that tomorrow he will make it to African soil (perhaps Bamako, Mali?) if they can get flight permissions and assurance that 100 low lead (aviation fuel) is on hand there. Please pray that this works out.

Again if you want to track the progress of the airplane, you can do by CLICKING HERE.

Monday is Joey's birthday, so we're thinking that perhaps the airplane will be his gift!

We'll keep the updates coming as we get word of progress.
