Papa, Mr Fixit and Haiti Helper


Ah, time for some fun. One of the great things about living here in Wilmington is the opportunity to spend time with Myles. So, it's time for a first fishing trip here at "Papa's Lake".

Mr Fixit:
With my new house, I also have the fun of nearly unlimited projects. Here are before and after pictures of a couple of the bigger ones, moving a wall to create a laundry room and closet, and repairing badly rotted exterior doors in the back of the house:

Haiti Helper:
But, probably the biggest thing I've been doing is leading a team on a mission trip to Haiti. So far, that has meant leading meetings, organizing support, communicating with associated organizations, obtaining materials and general preparation. Things like our Applebee's Flapjack Fundraiser. Below are pictures of our team, as well myself, mingling with customers Bill and Catha.

But, in less than 2 weeks, we will be travelling to Haiti for an 8 day working trip. The problems in Haiti are big and well known, and the challenges are big as well. But, we couldn't stand by and watch, when the possibility of helping was within our grasp, and so, we'll try our best to help.

If you've watched the news reports and wished there was something you could do to help, this is your chance. If you want to know more about how you can help, with moral support, prayers or donations, visit our website at

See you on the other side.
