We made it to Trinidad safely

In Uncategorized on January 24, 2007 at 10:14 am

After almost missing our connection due to the late flights out of Lexington, KY, we made the connection with seconds to spare and made it to Port of Spain, Trinidad, smoothly. The flight was just over four hours from Atlanta. Customs and immigration were no problem. We made it to Point Fortin around 11:45 p.m. and got to work right away the next day. Some of the tile at the church was already laid. Here are some pictures to give you an idea.

Here is the title on the platform of the sanctuary at the church in Point Fortin.

Here is am cleaning away the”mud” overflow which seals the tile to the floor so the other men could begin laying the next row of tile.

This is Aaron and Panther. Aaron has no legs and he and Panther laid down the tile quickly and expertly. We hope to send you some more pictures so you can really see the difference. It’s an Extreme Church Makeover.

This is Kasia, Roddie’s granddaughter. She has grown up so much. When we first went in ’04, she was only eight months old and barely walking. Now, she is growing up, running, talking, and being queen of the castle like always. What a sweet child.

I have an interview today at the Christian radio station in Port of Spain at 4:00 p.m. today (3:00 p.m. EST) concerning the marriage conference I’m conducting this weekend, so please pray. Roddie Taylor, the pastor here, was to be in on the interview, but he is ill so I have to do the fifteen minutes solo. Please pray for me.

God is high above all the nations and is not tied to any culture. We praise God that even those we Americans are in Trinidad, God is with us as well.

We’ll keep you posted.
