We are now getting ready to take off from Chicago. Our flight was for 8 PM however we didn’t get loaded until 9 PM. Then we were on the path to take off and had to stop because someone from the flight control sent another plane in front of us. It is now 10 PM and we are sitting on the tarmac waiting to be pushed back so we can start the engines again to take off!! :). The flight is full and there are a couple of young children expressing the feelings of many passengers! 🙂 We will be…
We have had several flight delays today and are killing time at the food court in Chicago before our 8 PM flight to Warsaw. Otherwise things have been going smoothly. Continue your prayers.
i’m off to Lithuania today for two weeks of ministry. I don’t know how much access I’ll have to internet to update the site but will if I have the opportunity. We will be traveling throughout the country working with various churches and their ministries. We are humbled and thankful that they are allowing us to come and partner with them. I know we will learn from them. Pray for our team of 9 as we travel and represent Christ.
Typepad has a mobile blogging application for blackberry phones and I’ve added it to my own so I can keep up with some posting while on the trip. I leave with a team of 9 on Friday for two weeks in Lithuania. We will be doing a variety of things and working with three different churches while in the country. this trip has been in the making for nearly a year so we are very excited about being there. I’ve had many conversations with folks that II look forward to meeting. I’ll try to post throughout the trip so you…
This is a test to see about Blogging from my blackberry. If it works, perhaps I will be able to find time here and there on my travels to blog some.
The last couple of days my site has been messed up. That is my technical definition for the complete style mishap that overtook my site. I fixed it tonight although, with all honesty, I have no idea how I did it. Regardless, we are back to our normal broadcast. A few updates. The end of May was busy with graduation activities for my youth. We had our senior dinner, graduate Sunday, and then an awesome senior trip to New Orleans and Gulf Shores, Alabama. You can see a bunch of pictures in my Picasaweb Photo Album. This past week I’ve…
I Can See Clearly Now ….
Yesterday I had Lasik surgery. After a couple of years thinking about it and the cost, I finally decided a month ago to do it and it all happened quickly. Which is how I wanted it. I have many weeks of travel this summer and this will be so convienent. For those of you wondering about the process, here is a little testimony. My surgery was performed by Dr. James Luetkemeyer at Capital Eye Care in Jefferson City. Luetkemeyer and his partner, Dr. Matt Lewis, have a great record with Lasik. Prior to my Lasik surgery, I scheduled an appointment…
Day of Silence Creates Some Noise
I already posted about the fact that this Friday, April 25, is World Malaria Day. (Buy a net, save a life.) Well, there is another pesty problem on Friday that is getting under people’s skin and spreading ill feelings throughout the community. It’s the Day of Silence. According to their website, the DOS,“a project of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), is a student-led day of action when concerned students, from middle school to college, take some form of a vow of silence to bring attention to the name-calling, bullying and harassment — in effect, the silencing —…
World Malaria Day – April 25
World Malaria Day is this Friday, April 25th. Malaria is a killer. In Africa, it is the number one killer of children. But it doesn’t have to be. Malaria is both a preventable and treatable disease. It can be prevented by giving families and individuals insecticide-treated bed nets to sleep under and taking steps to kill mosquitoes where they breed and when they enter houses to feed at night. At the same time, anti-malarial drugs such as artemisinin and other combination therapies that are widely available can treat malaria before it becomes deadly. Life-Saving Facts For just $10 we can…
I’ve been robbed. It’s so sad. Someone has taken my April. I swear it was just here the other day and then I turn around and… it’s gone. If anyone finds it, please return it to me. I miss it and I really, really need it. Last night went to a local showing of Invisible Children and a benefit concert. The Go Help Club at the local public high school sponsored the event. I went not only because I’m a big supporter of Invisible Children but because one of the two bands was a band of some of my youth…
