Hello From Puerto Morelos

I am sitting in the courtyard of a small hotel in Puerto Morelos, Mexico using their free wi-fi. I just wanted to stop by and let everyone know we made it safely to our destination. It is sunny this morning. the temperature is hovering around 80 degrees. I am looking out over the Caribbean Ocean, and it is calm, turquoise blue and stunningly beautiful. Today does not hold a lot of adventure for us. We are off to find me a hat so my delicate, baby-like skin does not get fried in the sun. Then, we will head out to the beach for a while to sit and soak up some rays. Well, Joan will soak up the rays. I will be thoroughly covered from head to toe and any visible skin will be swathed in a think coat of sunblock to protect my delicate, baby-like skin.

When we got here yesterday, we walked into town to buy a few supplies and to get a bite of dinner. We ate at this quaint restaurant that served the best guacamole and pico de gallo I have ever eaten. Joan had nachos. I had chicken nachos. we both had a Coke. By the way, Cokes are better in Mexico. They still make them with cane sugar and not corn syrup. The difference is worth the distance. they remind me of the soft drinks of my youth. The bill was just over $10.00. Cheap, delicious and filling. Well, I had better go for now. We have a hard day of nothing to do. I will check in manana, if possible.

Off To Cancun

Actually, we are headed to Puerto Morelos, Mexico for the next several days. You hate me I know, but we are taking some much needed R and R, so deal with it. You can have your frosty mornings, your ice and your snow. I am headed were it is 80 degrees in the daytime and 60 at night. Anywy, pray for us as we travel. I will post pics as time and desire allow.

Well, we survived the infamous body scanner this morning. I figured they could see me in all my glory if they could stomach it. My lovely wife got both thevscanner and the patdown she just had a big old morning of TSA goodness, of course, the TSA agent who administered the patdown indicated that she wasn’t too thrilled about the process either. We laugh, but as we do, our rights as citizens are being eroded every day.

Adios amigos.

Another Great Night Of Meeting

We met again with the folk at Higher Ground Baptist in Gadsden, AL. We had a wonderful time on the Lord. Once again, the Spirit of the Lord moved in this precious church and we went to meeting. The Lord allowed us to worship and enjoy His sweet presence. Unlike a lot of places in our day, this church is alive with the joy of the Lord. His presence is sweet, rich and powerful and I am grateful for the privilege to minister here during these special days of meeting. Please remember us in your prayers as we conclude the meeting this evening. Pray for this church and their Pastor James Wallace. I am expecting to hear great things from this congregation in the days ahead.
