Dear Family, Friends & Partners in Prayer,
Thank you for all the kind words, emails, prayer & financial support you have given me the last few weeks.
To bring you up to speed about my van, in North Carolina we had two spark plugs and a wire replaced (which was causing the van to drag slow) I was also blessed by the Forest Hill United Methodist Church in Concord, NC with four new tires!! I did not realize my tires were bare to the medal. My van is currently getting some more… Continue

Remember Your Elders
It is really important to remember our Elder brothers and sisters in Christ who are not able to even get to church anymore, And the widows, and widoers, The injured, and the sick! They MUST be remembered!
It is inhumanly cruel and nowhere Christ-like to forget them! After all, Didn't they, at least some of them, spend all, or most of thier Life for God? And who are WE to just allow them to pass out of the awareness of the Church family? In… Continue

Picture the scene. It's a Sunday morning, we're in the local church of Anytown, and the worship leader has just finished a song; 'Lord Jesus, we thank you for your presence in this place, we love you Jesus, we glorify your name...' and softly the music builds and the vocals come in: 'It's all about you, Jesus...'
Later the pastor steps up and raises the energy levels: 'We're here because of Jesus! Let's give him the glory! It's time to commit ourselves again to him and his… Continue

The WTR admin team and I are going to start trying to blog a bit more regularly and i've got a great testimony to share with you in this one!
I watched this healing testimony about 5 years ago and they've updated the video to show more detail and more about her life since. I don't want to give too much away but this testimony is so powerful and so well documented. I watched it again last night and it just reminds me how awesome and… Continue

I just wanted to take a moment to encourage any of you Americans to take a moment to sign this petition. It is with the Liberty Counsel. It is for trying to stop the hundreds of millions of dollars written into the stimulus package for "family planning" aka abortion.
It is interesting that we have our first African American president and one of the first things he is doing is providing funding to kill babies, babies of low income families...a majority of… Continue

Yesterday, Luis was on his computer and called me over to see another video of a man dying in the middle of a busy street with many lookers on doing absolutely nothing. It made me stop and wonder what kind of a world are we living in when people choose not to help someone in dire need. This is the second such video I've seen in the past months, and then there was the woman who died in a hospital waiting room with the even the staff looking on and doing nothing.
But this morning, a… Continue

TRUE CHRISTIANITY-- Part 1
A 14 year old teen age girl once asked me when she first met me if I was a true Christian. I thot that was an amazing question for her to ask. You see I was writing a book on the subject of what it means to be a true Christian, but she didn't know that, and I told her that I'm trying very hard to be just that. A true Christian.
What does it mean tho, to be a true Christian? To have a Christ like spirit? Oh it means so much more… Continue

O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory. Awake, lute and harp! I will awaken the dawn. I will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples, And I will sing praises to You among the nations. For Your mercy is great above the heavens, And Your truth reaches to the clouds. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, And Your glory above all the earth; that Your beloved may be delivered, Save with Your right hand, and hear me (Psalm 108:1-6).

As we now enter 2009, which is the year of completion, I want to share with you what the Lord has laid upon my heart concerning this year:
"...and I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ's return, developing that good work and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you. " (Philippians 1:6, AMP)
I could just stop there but there's more. You see it's not just… Continue

Have you ever felt that sometimes you complicate the things of God too much and you take a step back and realize that actually it's so simple. Many times we don't even understand the simplest things of God, yet we expect to achieve bigger things for His Kingdom.
No ... This is not a rebuke to anyone. I'm sure all of you reading this are walking in His will and achieving His perfect plan for you :P As for me, there's still so many things for God to work out in my life. But like I've… Continue

Lately everything has been spinning out of whacked. Although the Holy Spirit has inspired a lot of revelations in my heart, I was kinda distracted and was focusing on something else.
It's not easy to say you want to serve God full-time when you know you have a family and children that depends on you financially. Even more so than now, knowing that my parents is loaning me their entire life's savings to get a house. Causes so much anxiety whenever I think about it. Even their friends… Continue

Allow me to introduce myself... Yes, you probably know me, knew me, heard of me, forgot me, remember me, don't know me, want to know me, or don't care at all, but bear with me anyway, or not.
Fast forwarding through the last 25 years of life you will find a boy that grew up on a farm near a small town close to no where. Been to only 3 schools in my life, most of which was boarding school. Eventually in late high school I turned my back on every "good" principle I was raised with. By… Continue

To know the LORD in HIS awesome GLORY and POWER, is to know HIS love and all that HE is '',I AM THAT I AM''but at the same time we have lost the fear of the LORD in many areas of our lives,even our churches may we humble our selves under the MIGHTY HAND OF GOD, as we come before HIM ,in worship as we as musicians and artists declare the HIS name reverence our GOD, more of YOU LORD AND LESS OF ME, this is my prayer for all of us,yes HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT,AND HIS MERCY FOREVER,But LORD you are… Continue
