Day 30 The Adventure Begins

I saw that a family in Michigan just had their thirteenth child. Not a big deal you might say, but they are all boys. Now what are the odds of that happening? They say one in 8,000, but I believe that would only be true if every family tried to have 13 kids. I would...

Day 29 The Adventure Begins

I was feeling behind 5 minutes ago. I was thinking of all the things that need to be completed at the property this week. I thought by Tuesday we would have more to show for it. I just looked at my calendar to make sure it was “day 29” And there it was . ....

Day 28 The Adventure Begins

Just finished a missions meeting here at Church. We have some wonderful missionaries doing some incredible things. Cuba, Chile, Sudan, Pakistan, Central America, and Mexico. We are looking at the possibility adding the Po Kot people group in Kenya. Maybe in a year or two you might be able to join us on a two...

Day 27 The Adventure Begins

It might be too late to get tickets, but the UFO Festival in McMinnville is already half over. The speakers include a scientist from the 50’s who had firsthand knowledge of Government cover-up at Roswell, Alien abduction specialists, and researchers using the “freedom of information act” to uncover conspiracy. Along with that list is arguably...

Day 24 The Adventure Begins

13 years ago our little congregation decided to step up to the edge. It was time to have a permanent foothold in the community. At the time we could afford very little as far as land was concerned but we acted in faith that our God (who incidentally owns the cattle on a thousand hills)...

Day 23 The Adventure Begins

Yesterday a tornado swept through a sleepy little town in Arkansas. It was a EF2 with 125 mph winds. A well built house might have endured the storm with moderate damage, but the small mobile home was no challenger to such force. The broken gas line caused an explosion which finished off what the wind...

Day 22 The Adventure Begins

Sometimes little things declare the health of a church. Just this last week: -a new couple wanted to start helping prepare morning communion -a woman before Bible study drove slowly through some surrounding neighborhoods while she prayed for those in the houses -three more people said, “we want to become members.” -Someone proposed a new...

Day 21 The Adventure Begins

We are a little in the dark about Jesus and his family life. As the oldest, there was a weight of responsibility on him as the head of the house after the assumed passing of his father. One window into the mother son relationship happened as Jesus was on the cross. The weight of the...
