Long Trip – Good Fellowship

Mon, 07 Mar 2011 16:10:41 +0000

Saturday I had the opportunity to preach in a deaf church on the other side of Buenos Aires. It only takes about 1.5 hours by private car to get to the church. I was taking a small group of people from our church with me. Those who went with me are interested in deaf ministry … Continue reading "Long Trip – Good Fellowship"

Recent Projects

Fri, 05 Nov 2010 14:55:49 +0000

While it has been quiet here, I have been actively putting out content in different venues. Some are very targeted and therefore don’t really fit here at My Thought Spot. However, I wanted to share some of the projects here as a way of informing and inviting you to join in any that seem appropriate. … Continue reading "Recent Projects"

Deaf Nation 2010 Trip

Fri, 28 May 2010 12:04:27 +0000

This summer I am taking a trip to Las Vegas to attend Deaf Nation. Please check out the post about the trip at my ministry website. The purpose of this article is to share with you about why I am raising money through friends and individuals as opposed to going to our normal supporters. By … Continue reading "Deaf Nation 2010 Trip"

Mary or Judas

Sun, 31 Jan 2010 19:42:59 +0000

Last Wednesday I was in a church service where a visiting pastor was speaking. His sermon was a comparison of Mary and Judas in Mark 14 verses 3-11. Mary: Focused on the most important–worshiping God (Christ). Luke 10:38-42 Faithful in trials. John 11:21-40 Forsook her greatest possession. Mark 14:3 Judas: Criticized intimate worship. Mark 14:4 … Continue reading "Mary or Judas"

New content ideas

Mon, 25 Jan 2010 18:00:29 +0000

I am considering adding some new content to my main website. Many of my readers would know that we are missionaries working with the Deaf. In an effort to connect with our supporters in a greater way, I am considering adding a video and/or an audio podcast**. These will be short updates that will help … Continue reading "New content ideas"

Latest Fortune Cookies

Tue, 22 Dec 2009 01:47:43 +0000

Here are the cookies from yesterday. These came from the same place that we got the “Oops… Wrong cookie” from last month. We don’t put much faith in the writers of such clever sayings, but these recent ones have been interesting food for thought. My fortune: What are you waiting for? Start moving now. I … Continue reading "Latest Fortune Cookies"

Camp starts today

Tue, 11 Aug 2009 15:02:31 +0000

The second of our two camps for the Deaf in Mexico starts today. We are expecting 31 (or so) in attendance. This is our third year to do this camp. The first year was a day camp in which we picked up the kids and took them to a location each day. Last year we … Continue reading "Camp starts today"

Northern Deaf Camp

Sat, 25 Jul 2009 13:37:17 +0000

Yesterday was the end of the camp in Mexico that I have helped direct the last few years. This is also an end of an era. Today we said our goodbyes to the Deaf from the churches in the main part of the Mexican Republic. We are now headed to the Yucatan peninsula to spend … Continue reading "Northern Deaf Camp"

Back in Mexico

Mon, 20 Jul 2009 03:12:08 +0000

What a wild whirlwind tour that is life over the last few weeks. (I have to go back and check to see where I left off). Oh, yes, Gettysburg. After Gettysburg we spend a few days in Syracuse, New York with some dear friends. He is the pastor of a deaf church and president of … Continue reading "Back in Mexico"

Flight to the airport

Tue, 14 Apr 2009 00:14:24 +0000

My plane back from Guadalajara was scheduled to leave at 8:00 am. Since the airport was an hour away and I needed to be there 2 hours early, that meant I had to leave at 5:00. I was totally at the mercy of whoever the pastor found to take me to the airport. The other … Continue reading "Flight to the airport"

My bed was as hard as a rock

Mon, 13 Apr 2009 05:26:10 +0000

This week while I was in Guadalajara I had the privilege of sleeping on the floor at the church. I am going to consider it a privilege since I was not sleeping outside in the dirt. If you have not slept on a concrete slab lately, you might find it amazingly uncomfortable. Every so often … Continue reading "My bed was as hard as a rock"

Guadalajara de nuevo

Sun, 12 Apr 2009 04:43:28 +0000

I spent the last week in Guadalajara, Mexico. It was a good week in that we got a lot accomplished, but it was also a very long week. There is a group of missionaries and national pastors working with the Deaf in Mexico that gets together a couple of times each year to fellowship and … Continue reading "Guadalajara de nuevo"

When does it end?

Fri, 03 Apr 2009 03:23:25 +0000

I have really been hoping for time to catch up on the blog. I have so many events and activities that are taking place every day. Then when I do have time to blog I have not had Internet access. This week we are in a conference at a church in Ringgold, GA. This is … Continue reading "When does it end?"

I bet you get great satisfaction from your work

Fri, 30 Jan 2009 15:21:02 +0000

I have often had people comment that my job must be very rewarding. I have always agreed outwardly but never really felt it inwardly. At least, not in the way they are thinking. I know when people make a comment about my work being satisfying they are talking about the social good that I do … Continue reading "I bet you get great satisfaction from your work"

Twitter revisited

Wed, 12 Nov 2008 04:18:25 +0000

A bit over a year ago I talked about using Twitter. I have recently (within the last 3 or 4 months) gotten much more involved with twittering. I own 2 Twitter accounts if you want to follow me. The first one is the one I have been using for a year and a half. That … Continue reading "Twitter revisited"
