Dear Friends And Supporters Of The Robinsons

Wednesday, April 05, 2000

Greetings from ‘Almost Heaven’ West Virginia! Yesterday it was in the mid to high seventies, but now it is spitting snow and in the low forties! As you may imagine, we are ready for some consistently warm temperatures. Lord willing, by the time most receive this prayer letter we should be back on Carriacou and getting back into the work to which the Lord has called us.

We are planning to drive from Beckley, West Virginia to Dulles/Washington International Airport on Monday, April 10. The next morning, April 11, we are scheduled to fly out at 7:07 AM. We are supposed to make one change or stop in Puerto Rico, and then proceed on to the mainland of Grenada to land at 3:30 PM. We then hope to recover ALL our bags, clear immigrations and customs, and leave on a high speed fairy at 6:00 PM. We should arrive on Carriacou around 7:15 PM. Please pray for our safety, for the arrival of all bags and boxes we plan to take with us (with six large boxes as ‘excess baggage’). Also pray that we will be able to clear immigrations and customs quickly and with little hassle and costs.

Thankfully, we have all recovered from our multiple automobile accidents. Jeshua completed the therapy for his knee injury and was cleared the last part of February. The first part of March I finally heard from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHR). They notified me that my health is too good for me to qualify for any assistance with getting the CardioSeal procedure done to close the hole in my heart. If you recall from our previous prayer letters, this hole is the likely source of the clot that broke loose and caused the stroke back in April of last year. For the time being, I have taken this decision as the Lord’s will and trust that He will take care of us all.

Once we received the news from the DHHR, we began taking immediate steps to return to Carriacou. I was delayed for about two weeks as I struggled to correct a stubborn oil leak on the car we have gotten for Tabitha to use. Some four oil pan gaskets, and one head gasket later, the bottom of the engine is finally staying dry and I feel better about turning it over to her.

We have made one crate (4 x 4 x 8 feet), and another (about 2.5 x 2.5 x 4 feet) was graciously provided. As of yesterday, they are both full and I hope to close them up, label them, and see them shipped out later this week or early next week. They should arrive on Carriacou about two to three weeks later. Please pray for their transport to Carriacou as we plan to transship through St. Vincent directly to Carriacou without going through the Grenada mainland this time. We hope to save time and money by doing it this way. Also pray that the customs agents will be merciful to us once the crates arrive.

Because of high import duties on vehicles going into Grenada, we are not able to take one with us this time. But we do have a plan in place. As we explained in an earlier letter, the insurance company gave us a fair settlement for the loss of our mini-van. We used about $1,500 of the insurance settlement to purchase and fix-up the car we got for Tabitha. We plan to use the remaining $7000.00 to locate and purchase a ‘bus’ in Grenada, which is a mini-van that is capable of carrying 15-18 passengers. With what we have on hand we hope to find something that is seven to ten years old and in reasonably good shape. By they way, we will likely be without a vehicle for the first two to three weeks back on Carriacou because our 1987 Vista station-wagon has to be inspected. Unfortunately, as I recall the inspectors will not likely be available until the last few days of this month. Please pray that we will be able to get alone without a vehicle until the Vista is street legal once more. Pray also for our guidance and wisdom in locating and purchasing the right vehicle.

We have a multitude of personal thank-you notes that we need to send out, and those will be forthcoming. However, I will take this opportunity to thank Cross Lanes Bible Church for allowing us to stay in the missionary apartment, for supplying us with a very nice vehicle to use, and for a very gracious special gift to help with our outgoing expenses. God is good, and His children are also gracious. Thanks to all for the special notes of encouragement and concern. Thanks also for the special financial gifts and the donations of special materials including literature. We are especially thankful for a Maytag washer and dryer that is only 11 years old, because our current set is nearly 40 years old and nearly worn out! Thanks also to our supporters who have all stood with us through recovery since I suffered the stroke. God is Good, and His people are also not too shabby! smile.gif (918 bytes) The family within the Kingdom of God is marvelous beyond description. We are blessed to be a part of it, and we are thankful for those who continue to touch our lives with theirs as constant earthly reminders that we are not alone.

Still looking up for Him as your coworkers,
Walter Robinson II
