In our World Missions Conference two weeks ago, our missionary Keith Drinkard said, “The least amount of faith is greater than the greatest amount of difficulty that you will face today.” We all know of the Bible verses where Jesus tells His disciples in Luke 17:6, “If ye had faith as a grain of mustard … Read More

Ever have an issue with your family vehicle? I know, right? Who HASN’T?! The 2012 Honda Odyssey we’d had for three years now, when we first bought it, within two months started exhibiting transmission issues, and we ended up having to replace the transmission. Took all of our savings at the time, $3,600. We next … Read More

One of my “New Year’s Resolutions” two months ago was to try to go a full 30 days eating ZERO sugar of any kind from any drink or food or dessert and also to do a hundred sit-ups for that same thirty days. I’m still not sure if I made it a full thirty days … Read More

A while back, it was Pastor Rabon’s turn to bring the devotional thought.  He shared about Joseph, and in his thoughts, he shared how Joseph had asked his brothers and family and fellow Israelites to take his bones … Read More

Back in 2002 I flippantly bought one share of AAPL online for a mere twenty bucks. (Apple Computer stock.) Since then, AAPL has had two stock splits, one at 2-for-1, and more recently one at 7-for-1, when AAPL’s price had soared up above $700/share. Today, Apple has since become the world’s first trillion-dollar company, and … Read More

When my wife and I began the adoption process, the further we went down the path, the more and more it appeared to our human eyes and minds to be like that same pathway the Israelites took to get to their “dead end” at the shores of the Red Sea, and you wind up asking … Read More

It was not an accident that the children of Israel found themselves “trapped” in the geographical cul-de-sac where the Red Sea was located at back in Bible times. There literally was only one way to go, and that was straight across the water, but alas…they had no boats prepared for that many people. Reminds me … Read More
