AN LRA VICTIM

Ochola John-Another Victim of the LRA in Northern UgandaI just read this article…a horrid article about a man named Ochola John who was abducted by the  LRA.

I’m sure there are tens of thousands of stories like his, but please read it.

It’s just a tiny window into the life of a Northern Ugandan.

BOOKMAN’S ON THE MOVE!

Doug Bookman (2nd from right)

Many of you know and absolutely love our dear Dr. Doug Bookman…the humor, the teaching, the basketball, the life of Christ, the famous rabbit trails (‘if you know what I’m saying’), etc. Through the pages of both the Old and New Testament, he’s influenced many of us into a deeper walk with the God of the Bible.

Well, he and his family have exciting changes happening and as soon as their house sells, they’re moving to Springfield Missouri, to work with a new church plant and from there will venture out as a ‘Missionary-At-Large’, seeking to emphasize the Life of Christ in international lands. We’re so excited for him and know that he will impact thousands and thousands more, as he already has for many generations of The Master’s College world and around the world.

He’s selling his house and his daughter and son-in-law, Kea and Mike Brooks, are also selling theirs! Click the hyper links for their stats and then enter their STREET ADDRESS for the complete listing and if you or anyone you know might be interested, please email or call me.

Bookmans, we all wish you all of God’s blessing and pray that He increases the harvest through your ministry!

I LEFT MY HEART IN SAN FRANCISCO

Some of the cousins at Sean's Eagle Scout Court of Honor last summer...it was relieving and joyous after much sorrow! …and my family and friends.

Today, I am going up north to visit. I’m really looking forward to it for a varierty of reasons. In addition to family, I will probably see Forrest, Kendrick, maybe Nicolai (this is assuming they all find their way to my turf, the trecherous WC..like the OC, but without the ‘O’). Family includes aunts, uncles, cousins, Trevor and his clan…

 

This time last year we were all together as it was this time last year that my aunt Alicia killed her daughter and then herself. It’s amazing how time just keeps marching on… no matter what it finds in it’s path or in it’s wake.

I think it’s merciful how God is not bound by time and His grace & His healing are not confined to our earthly increments.

PICTURES…AND THEIR SMALLNESS

why won’t my pictures upload full size?

It makes me feel the way Zach looks.

GOD’S GRACE

Some of you may know the Kawaguchis. Too bad if you don’t. You should. They are expecting their second child (which is not solely why you should know them). I got Berit’s permission to share some beautiful photos of their family(Noah not pictured above) …please note the calm, the power of joy and life, and if you know them…the tremendous grace!

This is where Sam & Jennene updates will eventually go.

If you look up in the upper right hand corner of this blog site, you will see a page called Sam & Jennene Music (clever, eh?)

ROSE GETS THE GOODS

rose1.jpg

The guys visited Rose and gave her the care package I sent with them. This picture is with Rose and another orphan who is translating the card for her. I wish I could’ve been there! I also wish I could figure out how to make these pictures bigger. Word Press is much better than Blogger…except the picture feature. Nonetheless, I don’t think Rose cares how big the photo is…she’s probably just stoked with her new dresses and crayons.
