Last night we all went to the park that is just a few blocks from our house for a fugata (bonfire). There are 105 steps to the top. I counted them. Last time we did this there was a pretty good size group from the church who came. This time it was an even bigger group. Someone took a pickup out to Yarusin and Crucitas and loaded the front and back with church members from there. The plan was to have a time of prayer, singing, a little preaching, some fun games and to eat something. The first four things... Continue reading

Last night we had our Friday night small group. One of our regulars is a member of the church we attend. His mother and grandfather came to our study. That doesn't seem so strange or unusual to most of you but here in Honduras, it is. My Spanish still leaves a lot to be desired so I'm not positive that I got everything right but if I did I understood the grandfather to say that he hadn't seen his daughter in eleven years. He said he hadn't seen Selvin since he was six. Selvin is now married, has a son... Continue reading
I'm a plus user. I've tried putting the code in different ways. It looks good in the editor but in the preview it's just a plain block quote. Any suggestions?

I never actually closed this blog. I just haven't written anything here. But I'm thinking maybe I'll use it as an outlet to my ponderings. I fasted for three days a couple of weeks ago. Continue reading
Welcome to my blog. My soul rejoices that you have come for a visit. This blog is about my family and me as three of us live and work in the beautiful western highlands in Honduras. We'll be working with a team of Hondurans, Salvadorans, North Americans and a Dominican Republican to help plant, grow and edify churches throughout the Occidente area. We'll be helping with medical, dental and eyeglass brigades from the USA. My wife and I are specifically working on a program called Building Strong Families in which we plan to help weak marriages become strong, good marriages... Continue reading

I can't think of a gadget that I can't live without. I can think of several that I should live without.

Anti-snore spray, ear plugs, eyeglasses, a lamp, two Tylenol and some good books.

Went to get my driver's license. I remember how nervous I was right after I got them and was driving home and passed a gas tanker truck. Not a good thing to do ten minutes after you get your license.

I wrote my "Wisdom and Revelation" earlier this week because I had read a beautiful passage in the book of Ephesians. God has made my soul rejoice again by blessing me with one of those coincidences he throws my way occasionally. Our congregation of believers has been watching the entire video series by Ray Vander Laan called "That The World May Know". It is one of the best video series I've ever seen. I told our members that since few of us would be able to visit the Bible lands this series would be the next best thing to being... Continue reading
Forget the elevator, I think this "question of the day" is stuck. Can we get a "question of the day" mechanic over here please?

A verse in Ephesians "That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him..." got me thinking about how they were supposed to have or get wisdom and revelation? Continue reading

Wild muscadine vines. We would cut them off at the ground and pretend we were Tarzan as we swung on them. I could yell the best.

I would get some of those Mexican lollipops that look so good and then burn the hell out of your mouth because that's pretty much what we get every time we vote - something that looks great and then burns us.

What's your favorite road trip memory? Submitted by Birch Counseling. That would have to be the time we were in Yankari Game Reserve in Nigeria when the clutch cable broke on our car while we were going to see the elephants. We traveled for two days from our home in Ukpom to get to Yankari. The first day we took the tour on the "tour bus" or the back of a dump truck - ate dust for a couple of hours but it was okay. We saw a few animals. The next day we show up two minutes late and... Continue reading

When we moved to Nigeria, West Africa I was pleased to find there were lots of fruits growing all around our house. There were bananas, pineapples, papayas, mangoes and a few others. One was of particular interest. Just outside the kitchen window was a cherry tree or perhaps better described as a cherry bush. It was about fifteen feet tall (that's five meters in Nigerian). The branches were big enough that the kids could climb up them, which they did when the cherries got ripe. The cherries themselves were light green as they grew, then turned to yellow, then orange...

I like the song my title is based on because it reminds me that someday my millionaire friend is going to leave me an inheritance. Not something I deserve, he (or she) is going to do it just because they are gracious. And I will use it to honor him (or her). I like the three points, too. God is great. I've talked about it here on my blog. He has helped me in so many different situations that I cannot believe how much He cares. Its pretty amazing to think that the creator of the universe would have any... Continue reading
