Marriage is an Example

For the past few weeks, we’ve been talking about marriage and how to fight for your marriage and how to not fight for your marriage and how to keep ministry in your marriage and whatnot. As a husband, I’ve been loving it. Reminders on how to best love my wife are always welcome. But, as...

Day 40! The Adventure Begins

I walk into the auditorium (I would open the doors to the auditorium but there are none. We have a 18,000lb lift that we still need in there for all the high ceiling lights and speakers. It barely can wiggle itself out now.With the doors in we would have to take it apart and remove...

Day 39 The Adventure Begins

As I walk around the new building I see a long hallway to the children’s classrooms. I can only imagine the small minds and hearts that will be influenced there. Are you lucky enough to remember a special Sunday school teacher? One who treated you with respect and kindness? What incredible opportunities there will be,...

Day 38 The Adventure Begins

“I see a room” As I walk through the new building today, I see opportunity. Everywhere, . . opportunity. Rooms for small group studies, a room for weekly addiction recovery. I see a front room (with a huge fireplace and log stairs where a man who hasn’t been to church much will walk in and...

Hanging on my office wall is a calendar that our very own Bud Davis gave me. It is a Submarine medal of honor calendar. Bud served in World War II in a submarine. He even boarded...

Day 34 The Adventure Begins

Finished another awesome day down at the property. Thanks for the help Mirco, Marsha, Sue and Jeanette. Everyone was cementing bricks on the walls in the wedding room and the cafe. I myself had 22 bricks suspended in the air by 22 long sticks off the ground. (That’s about 60 pounds of bricks.) Not a...

Day 33 The Adventure Begins

At age 10 the Vietnam War was in full swing, showing no signs of victory or peace. The evening news in 1970 was often led with the latest word from the war front or news of protests from the rear. For me, all that news usually got in the way of Ramblin’ Rod cartoons and...

Day 32 The Adventure Begins

A long day but a good day. We poured the concrete in the fellowship hall this morning and I just finished with the power trowel ten minutes ago. I’d love to write you an article but I have to be at Bible study in 45 minutes. You all have a great evening. Pastor Mike
