“News From El Salvador” Britney and Bobby Hibbs write to us from quarantine, but on top of that, they are facing “Amanda,” a tropical storm. The storm left 30 people dead and 30,000 homeless. They received a donation and immediately it went to purchase food: 1000 pounds of beans, rice and powdered milk. They servedContinue reading “Memorizing God’s Word”
Why do we criticize people? Think about it. Cause we do it. A LOT. Most of us anyway. And most of us who say that we don’t… totally do. Why do we judge? Where does the impulse come from? Why do we feel the need to interject our criticism into the lives of others? BecauseContinue reading “Cast All Your Criticism on Him”
I have a book entitled “The Red Sea Rules” by Robert Morgan. It is an excellent little book. It has ten God-given strategies for difficult times.

“Exciting News” Last week I introduced to you an old, but new idea… that is – Scripture memorization. We also asked you to pray for Christians–persecuted Christians around the world–especially in Iran. This week, according to Operation World, the fastest growing church in the world is in the Islamic Republic of Iran even in spiteContinue reading “Memorizing God’s Word”

Friends againstContinue reading “Perseverance & Exhaustion”
Noah Webster once said, “…Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended when we finally get to a generation that has nothing to offer the next generation… no truth… no history… no forward-thinking… a faithless generation… no idea of sacrifice… serving.” Is this still true? Are the Words of Christ the only thingContinue reading “Is It Still True?”
Scripture Memorization I was introduced to a very powerful Christian principle that has almost been completely abandoned lately.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, and see, the new has come!” 2 Corinthians 5:17 Before we have a relationship with Christ, we are broken and lost. With Christ, we are a new creation and have direction. It is only through His grace and loveContinue reading “Broken Vessels”
I had started my first church while in college. It was in a very poor area and most of our effective ministry happened on Saturday more than Sundays. Saturday was visitation day and we always spent time in the community. Some Saturdays we would have lunch together, play games, do some repairs to some ofContinue reading ““WEST GRAND””
We are coming upon Fathers Day and I am reminded of my dad. He grew up in the hills of Eastern Kentucky which is where he met his high school sweetheart and married her, my mom. My father would say he did not have very much when he was growing up. Most of us wouldContinue reading “Anyone?”
