Trip to S. Oregon

Joy and I have been traveling in S. Oregon, presenting our ministry and looking for prayer and financial support.
Those who know me, know that I enjoy photography and a unique opportunity came up. Our friend and host here, Pastor Cliff Meyer is part of a hot air balloon team. He invited us to go out to see a launch, and get some great pictures of the whole process. I have never been around hot air balloons before but have seen some beautiful photos of them. Now it was my turn. I am sticking in some for you to see. This team is made up of people committed to the Lord and His service and the Balloon is WWJD -- Walking With Jesus Daily and WDJD -- What Did Jesus Do? Every flight begins and ends with prayer.
When we got there and ready to take some photos, the pilot indicated that two of his passengers had canceled and invited Joy and I to take a ride. What a thrill.
A week later we went to help the team again and launched the balloon then was in the chase to see where God would take it. We tried to set down in a school yard but could not, but He took us into another field. One of the team members knocked on the nearby house to ask permission before we set the balloon down in their field and the lady came out smiling from ear to ear. You have come from Heaven she said. unbeknown to us, her husband is under hospice care and this was a real encouragement to her. We were able to pray for her and her husband and the next door neighbors.
Enjoy the photos.
