Farewell, Smoky Mountains
This terrain was covered with snow when we landed on Monday, but there was smoke on the mountains (Psalm 104:32) as we met with the Lord and saught his vision for Lausanne (www.CapeTown2010.com).
Our host for dinner shared how he and his wife have long had a heart for Haiti. They discovered 40 groups with a similar heart in the Knoxville area, and they had, long ago, prepared a team to visit Haiti. They left for the airport earlier than we did this morning with plans adjusted from what they were months ago. They're connected to a couple dozen churches there, and they reported that a care facility run by one of those churches is overrun with over 1500 people fleeing Port-au-Prince in fear of more aftershocks.
In the evening I performed part of Big Fish Little Worm (www.RichDrama.com/BigFishLittleWorm) and Hyatt Moore shared his amazing art, his story and his heart. He's best known for The Last Supper for Twelve Tribes (www.HyattMoore.com). He went from art director for a surf magazine to short term missionary to head of Wycliffe Bible Translators. Then one day he was stopped at a light and saw a painting. He thought to himself, "I can do that." Now it's his full-time profession.
Thank you to all that were praying for us as we met. Much was accomplished on many levels.
