Pray for Kenya

I just noticed that there are over 100 people dead in Kenya because of the current election turmoil. I would encourage everyone to pray for Bro. Mbogo and the rest of the saints there, that they would be kept safe, and be able to use this to the advantage of the Kingdom of God, leading people to Christ during this time. Pray that they will be able to show many the Prince of Peace during this time of chaos.

Almost a new year!

Well, it's almost time for a new year. With a 10 1/2 month old around here, we experience new things all the time. Some great, some just interesting. Just yesterday she finally stood up on her own without pulling up on something else. She seems to grow constantly in that she is always learning or doing something new. Yesterday was nice as I didn't have to go any where. Of the previous 5 Saturdays, 4 were out of towners and the fifth we had our Kids' Day at church. So it was nice being able to take things a little slower, even though I did have a few things to do.
I am hoping during the coming months to be able to work more for the Lord, and to study and pray more. One of my blessings this Christmas, my Palm T|X, has enabled me to download a number of books onto it, including the Bible, which allows me to always have something to read whenever I have it on me. This is great, because I love to read, but often don't get around to it. Now all that I need is for someone to create PDF files of all the church books!!

May the you continue working for the Lord.

Merry Christmas!

I hope that all of you have a terrific Christmas. We have three days of Christmas here. Last night, after our candlelight service at church, which was pretty nice, we went to my mom and grandpa's house to have dinner and open gifts. Then, this morning we had Anna open her gifts up, because tomorrow, we will be going to open gifts at Kelley's parents' house. We figured Anna would get bored with things if she opened gifts here and there tomorrow.
I want to say thank you Lord for one gift especially. Not because it was the most expensive thing, but because it is something that I have been looking at getting for quite a while, and it just wasn't a wise financial decision for us to get. I got a Palm Handheld last night as a present. It came as a total shock. I had not idea whatsoever. I can say that I will definitely put it to good use. It will be great for me to keep track of things, and to read through documents and files, when I am away from the computer. And it has wifi and bluetooth so, I can read stuff on the net while kelley is busy on the computer, and communicate with my phone.
I am thankful during this year to be able to spend time during Christmas with most of my family. And I am thankful that our Lord and Saviour came to earth so that you and I might have life more abundantly. Let us remember the Saviour most of all during this time.

A while

Well, it's been a while since I have posted anything. We have been pretty busy.
Last Saturday we had our Kids' Day at Church we only had a couple of kids, but the weather was supposed to be bad and I think that probably scared off some of the parents in the neighborhood. We did have one new child that attended. Everyone seemed to have a good time. Taffee the clown was a big hit. I guess she was also a big hit at Walmart later, as they had to stop by there on the way home!
Well, I guess that's all for now. Please pray for the mission in Evansville, that we can get things set up and operating smoothly.

Let us lift up Christ.

Time Saver for Blogaholics

As you may or may not have noticed, you can subscribe to this blog by clicking on a link and it will send you an email with whatever has been posted. When I discovered this on another blog, I thought what a great idea. So, a few of the blogs that I read, I subscribed to, that way I didn't need to go and check the blog to find out if anything had been post. Saving a lot of time depending on how many blogs you read. My problem was, the vast majority of the blogs that I check, friends and church members, don't have any kind of subscription service. So, I was still wasting a lot of time checking up on everyone to see if they had posted.
Then I switched to the Google Reader. It does the same thing as the email subscription, except you can subscribe to some people's blogs who don't have a subscription set up. You just search for it with the Reader, and when you find it you can subscribe. Now, it doesn't work with everyone's blog, but seems to work with most. So, if you read a lot of blogs, you might give it a try. With a look at one page, you can find who on your list has posted anything new since the last time you read, and it even brings up the post for you. Just one way I have found to save time, while still keeping up with everyone.
For the record, Google Reader is not the only service that you can use to read feeds, but I don't know if the others will let you subscribe to people's blogs that don't specifically have a feed set up.

Saturday Again

Well it's Saturday again. Another busy week has just flown by. Can't really remember much details of the week, other than just working.
Mom's surgery yesterday went well. They thought that it would be 5 hours and turned out to be only 2 1/2 hours. She was able to come home today and seems to be doing well.
We had a good time at the Regional VLB Christmas Banquet in Elizabethtown, KY today. There was good preaching as well as good food. Kelley did a good job preaching, even though she has not been feeling very well. The only disappointment was that more people were not able to make it, for various reasons.
I preached at Wheeler Mission in Indianapolis tonight. The place was totally packed out. When it starts getting colder, there is hardly any room to move there during services. There was easily well over 100 people there. We had a good service. The men seemed pretty receptive.

Thank you Lord for taking us through another week, and keeping mom safe during surgery. And thank you for the healings that were testified about today.

Keep reaching out to the lost and dying souls of this world.
