A Private Jet You Say?


My wife is involved in a company called Premier Designs. She sells this brand's jewelry in ladies' homes across NE Oklahoma. She has been doing this for almost 9 years and loves it! Each year the company has a national rally in Dallas. Usually I go there for a week to learn a bunch of music and perform for the crowd with an ensemble. *Before you snicker, this gets us free room, board, and admission to the event!

In January the company has regional rallies across the U.S. The founders of the company asked for a quartet and I was called upon to assist! The cool thing is that I will be traveling to Orlando tomorrow and then hopping on the founder's private jet to go with them to the other sites! HOLY FREAKIN COW!!! Andy and Joan Horner are two of the nicest, most giving, godly people I have ever met...so traveling with them on their private jet is a little bit of a mind blower! I'll blog a little bit about my travels as the weekend unfolds but I really wanted to highlight what a honor it is to get to spend time with the Horners.

Andy and Joan started the Horner-Premier Foundation in 1992 to help protect the company's philosophy, purpose, and plan. A major part of that plan was to finance missionaries around the world. So, now that the Horners are no longer the President of the company, they spend a lot of time traveling to other countries and visiting the people that Premier funds. I will enjoy picking their brains about what God is doing and what they're excited about.

Okay, this was my inspiring post. From now on, just selfish pictures of me on a private jet and basking in "the life" that I will never live! Look out Creflo!

Dude, how cool is that!? Your going to get to feel that little bit of celebrity for awhile. A private jet, very nice. Have a great trip man, can't wait to see the pics.

I can sing a pretty mean mezzo soprano, or tenor for that matter, should you need another person in that quartet to go to Orlando.

I'm just sayin'.

Have a great trip! Man, your bad! "Look out Creflo!", you crack me up....saw the comment about the Horner's, the quote mentioned their integrity and doing it the right way, what a compliment and a privilege to spend time with them!

Steve....it was a cheap shot...I know!

Dude! Avoid anything w/beans before you get on that plane! Also, don't mention the "mile high club" either! Just some helpful tips. Love ya, bro!

Derrick Henslee said...

Kyle....you are a wise sage! Either that or the drugs from your surgery are really affecting you!
