News for March 11, 2007

March 11, 2007

A lot has happened since I have posted a lengthy post. So let us try and see if I can make one now, shall we?

Connected (Flame on)
Restoration 2007 has come to an end. (Aawwww...) It was fun this year, even though it was only 6 days. This year's the speaker was Pastor Ivor Myers. If anybody missed them, you can listen to them for free on the Restoration website, and on the Audioverse website. Creator's Call video recorded the meetings and they will be available on DVD soon. Maybe in a few days. If you would like to obtain a copy, go to the Restoration website.

On a side note, Pastor Myers will be one of the speakers at Southwest Youth Conference this year.

Creator's Call
Lots here. Programs are coming along. Now that we have our own equipment, videotaping is a lot easier. I just checked the website and we have eight programs that you can watch online.

Other stuff...
School does not start for me for another couple of weeks. I was hoping to finish by the end of the spring, but maybe by summer or fall.

My friend Mark finally has a Mac. Yay! Now all he has to do is get the programs he needs. Speaking of Mark, he and Martin both passed their nursing boards. Praise God! Now they can help reach out in two ways, physically and spiritually. Please keep them in prayer as they look for the right place for them to work.

My friend Tim bought a newer car. His old rice-rocket finally gave out. Even rockets can not be used always and last forever. It is a Nissan. Go check out his website and see.

Norman and Joelle are now engaged. From what I hear their wedding may be alot sooner than some think. I wonder what their kids will look like....

With today being the 11th of March, I am reminded that some friends of mine who are fourth year medical students will know on Thursday where they will be going for residency. For those who do not know what happens, every fourth year medical student goes and interviews at various hospitals to check out their residency programs. Long explanation short, they chose their top 10 choices and see where they end up. I hope all goes well for you guys!

Family stuff...
Normally I would start with this topic but I decided to end with this this time. It is almost be a year since my grandmother passed away after a long battle with illness. I miss her alot. It has been hard on my whole family, especially my grandfather.

My extended family has been through a lot over the past year. In less than one year we lost four family members, including my grandmother. Some may wonder why so many in such a short time. I do not know. However I do know that God is in control of everything, and that "all things work together for good for those who love the Lord who are called according to His purpose" Romans 8:28. And I look forward to the day when we will all be reunited in heaven!!

We all go through hard times in life, including losing loved ones. Some may be tempted to blame God, especially when losing loved ones. But I am reminded of the Bible says...

"Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? "
John 11: 25, 26
