Trip to Florida – Miami
February 10, 2013

We are in Miami from February 2-10, 2013, for more world missions contacts and speaking appointments.

We are staying in the condominium home of our friends Rafael and Maria Astuto, who are the parents of Annette Cintron. Annette and Mark are global workers in Madrid, Spain.

I preached in three churches on the radical nature of the gospel, with illustrations from Brethren in Christ (BIC ) World Missions. This was with a translator, of course. I met with various pastors and lay people regarding several different aspects of missions. We met with our good friends Eduardo and Jill Llanes to talk about ministry and have fun and eat at La Carreta, a restaurant featuring Cuban cuisine.  The name of the restaurant means The Cart, referring to an old fashioned wooden cart used by farmers or market people.

We also toured Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, located one mile south of downtown Miami. This was originally the winter home of James Deering, the vice president of International Harvester. Well worth seeing – you can check it out on the internet.

We leave on Monday, February 11, to return home by Amtrak’s Auto Train, which is the way we came to FL two weeks ago.

I hope to add some photos to this blog, but not tonight.
