An incredible day ahead — Day One of our Bahamas Mission Delegation! We arrived in Nassau yesterday – nearly 100 of us from across the US — thankful to be out of the cold and snow. Which made it especially funny when representatives from the Ministry of Tourism greeted us at the airport with apologizes for the 70-degree weather. They called it a Bahamas Blizzard! We called it Paradise.
Last night, “Delegation Eve,” we were hosted by the Governor General of the Bahamas, His Excellency Sir Arthur Foulkes and his wife Lady Joan Foulkes at the Government House. Great food. Great fellowship. And great fun! Among those assembled for the event were Ambassador Ned Siegel and wife, Stephanie, one of our Global Ambassadors and an Advocacy Alliance Board Member; the Minister of Tourism and Aviation; the Minister of Sports; Sunshine Holding Chairman Franklyn Wilson, and his wife Sharon; and several national leaders from The Links, Inc, our Community Health Partner. It was a truly amazing night… Especially for those of us who began this journey nearly 3 years ago. Read more
