Message:  Hi Joe Z and Jonmark and everyone else on the porch!!

I have to say "Help Thou My Unbelief" each morning, that I am still alive and well. God is good, and has kept me going strong. I could not believe it when I saw your post, Joe! Needless to say, I am not on the MN website often (shame on me) and still am not quite tough enough to "man up" and enjoy all the Sweet Memories. I'll get there one of these days. You can't imagine how often the fun times and the sweet people at the Gatherings come to my mind.

I have just returned from a two week mission trip to Popayan, Colombia, South America. I went with a team from my church, and stood on a scaffold on a 3rd story rooftop and laid bricks for the walls of a room that will house the minister of a 600 member church there. It was an unforgettable experience, and I was overwhelmed by the love from the Colombian people, who would hardly let us work for hugging us and telling us of their appreciation. Reminded me of the Porchers!! In fact, I wore a different Gathering tee shirt each day, and enjoyed explaining what they meant. My Spanish is limited, but I did let them know that Mickey Newbury music was Muy Bein!!

I must tell you all that I passed the Heritage Gibson guitar that Lee had given Elton to our nephew, Bill Noel, who is a professor on the staff at Lynchburg College in Lynchburg,VA. He immediately bonded with it and sent me an incredible CD of his original tunes. There are some good Noel music genes still out there. He has three little music-filled daughters, who may come on the music scene one of these days.

Thanks for remembering Elton--he loved you all!
