Hawthorne Summit

RMI missionaries Billy & Debbie Moses, Gary & Marilyn McLaughlin and Jenn Rogan met RMI staff Herb & Shirley Shoemaker, Dan, Dawn and I and Rob Thompson in Hawthorne, Florida Saturday, June 21 to Tuesday, June 24.  One of RMI's Board members, Billy Byrd, owns a small camp that he has renovated in this small central Florida town.  Dawn and I cooked for the crowd for 3 days as they met together.  It was a great time of catching up with one another and then doing extensive, strategic planning for the future for the Haiti field.

It was a great place to relax, fellowship, get away from the every day routine and spend time together.  God did bless our time and we are excited about what He has for us all in the future.


When Dawn wasn't in the cookhouse, she was on the dock.  Herb and Shirley pitched in, with Shirley catching the most!  The last evening we had enough catfish for everyone to have a bite!  She was a real trooper and fed us well.
