Funny the missionaries. Only met one "American" way back then. He had left the US West Coast somewhere on a very small sailboat loaded with used shoes for Haiti.

His plan was to go across the Panama canal and deliver them there,and that in the winter. By the time we picked him up he had been blown way off course in a nasty storm up to the West Coast of Vancouver Island after his engine died. When we got there he was getting dangeroulsy close from the rocks.

We always tought the shoes,not faith,kept him afloat....!

Thanks for the memories !.....Some of us won't watch FOX news.
Have tools, will travel!
