While we wait "patiently " for the Bobcat to get to the Orphanage, so much has happened.  Its our understanding,  that it is at least across the border and will be hauled to the Orphanage sometime this week 😉.
  Our special gift of a dream, bucket list trip to golf ⛳ at Pebble Beach in Monterrey,  California finally came to pass, after several months of delays due to Covid-19.  Our hosts from Power Ministry Scott and Kristy Anderson blessed us with the all expenses paid dream golf vacation. We flew into Ontario,  CA and then made the 6 hour drive up the iconic Hwy 1 along the Pacific coast.  We checked into the beautiful Spanish Bay Resort with our suites facing the golf course and ocean. We played Spanish Bay, Saturday,  then on our anniversary, we played the hollowed grounds of Pebble Beach. Nerves definitely got the best of me and I couldn't help but think about my Dad who would have only dreamed of playing there. I had also dreamed of being there, and now here I was. I hit a perfect drive on the first tee, and made par on the iconic 7th hole that plays to the Ocean.
  A wonderful dinner with the Andersons and Tony and Amy Reed who drove up to play with us. We played Spyglass on Monday and drove back to Riverside that afternoon.
  We flew back to San Antonio Wednesday,  golfed Thursday morning and drove home.
  Friday all the buzz was about Hurricane Hannah 🌀  heading our way. I bought sand. Filled up many bags for the forecasted 10 inches plus of rain forecast.  Hanna did not disappoint us.  Flooding occurred Saturday night and threatened our house as the water kept rising. The sandbags kept the water out, but thousands of families were not so happy.  Our friends in Mexico 🇲🇽  were hit especially hard, and continues even today.
  We are heading to Mexico today to deliver, food to Melodys Orphanage and the colonia. We also need prayers for Jaimes wife Rosalba.


  When the Bobcat was donated to us for the orphanage in the mountains, I had to at least get it to our place in Texas.  Rick Balmer graciously brought his truck and trailer to take it to our house. We left last Tuesday and got to our house Wednesday night. On the way down I broke my temporary bridge again! We also got word that our team in Mexico 🇲🇽 was all sick with Covid systems. We then made the decision to take a pallet I f beans back to Illinois and Paula would meet us and Paula and I would head back home.
  We had plans to camp with our family in Indiana over the 4th, and also attend the annual event at the Elizondos in Indiana just 40 miles from the campground.  But alas, we are home. The kids are camping and we are going to miss the party.
  God works everything out.  We needed to be here to recieve 300 pounds of frozen chicken, get our driveway fixed, get some money to our friends in Mexico,  and we were able to stop and visit some friends in Texas on the way home.
  We were not able to meet with supporters and have a fundraising pizza party like usual. We need to raise support for Melodys Orphanage in Reynosa. God has, will, and always supplies, even inspite of our " failed" plans.
