All the way to Mongolia!

On Wednesday morning around 6 A.M., my best friend's oldest brother Joshua is going to be getting on a plane to head off to Mongolia. Joshua will be there for 2 months helping out a missionary&family that our church supports and our pastor is friends with. It'll be different for the kiddos without him there since he normally plays with the kids.
   Would you ever go to a whole 'nother country? I would/will. Not to Mongolia but to Africa is my goal.
  Please keep Joshua in your prayers. In the village that the missionary is in,there has been quite a bit of unrest. Just the thing a mother wants to hear before she sends her son off to a third world country says Joshua's mom! Anyway he may run into problems down there and pray that he can be a blessing to the people and to the missionary.

Favorite verses

What are you guys' favorite verses? Here's a list of a few of mine-
Micah 6:8
He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

1 Timothy 4:12
Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

Romans 5:8
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Dear Girls...

Thank You, Lord

" Thank you, Lord, for saving my soul
Thank you, Lord, for making me whole
Thank you, Lord, for giving to me
Thy great salvation so rich and free"

Don't you just love this song? It's my favorite chorus-type song( not quite sure of the correct wording there).
This song is actually only part of a hymn written by Seth and Bessie Sykes in 1940.. The Sykes were traveling evangelists, well known in the UK and the USA.Mr. Sykes (1892-1950) began his career as a conductor and motorman for Glasgow Corporation Tramways. He also served as Secretary for the Tramway Christian Association where he was allowed to hand out Christian literature and Bibles. In 1929 Sykes left his job and along with his wife became a full-time traveling evangelist. The Sykes were somewhat like today’s media Christian innovators in that they used lantern slides and rousing songs played by Bessie on their barrel organ to gain the full interest of their crowds. Seth’s sermons led countless people to Christ and this hymn was most assuredly sung as a regular part of their services.raveling evangelists, well known in the UK and the USA. Their home base was Glasgow, Scotland.

Hope you learned something from this. (:
God Bless

Are you one of the 2 or one of the 10?

Last week, 2 of my brothers and I had the opportunity to go to a Christian camp. The man of God who preached all 7 sermons was Pastor Randy Dignan. best messages I have heard in forever. Well anyway one of the messages he reached was titled" Are you one of the 2 or one of the 10?" . He told about the 12 spies in Israel. The 10 who were scared and influenced the people to the wrong and the 2 who believed in God's promises. Pastor Dignan challenged us teens, in our daily life, are we more like the 10? just following the world,not being a good influence. or are we like the 2? believing God, showing a difference in our lives, standing up for Christ.

 I know I want to be one of the 2. How about you? Will you be willing to stand up for Christ? What if all your friends laughed at you, would you still be a good witness for God? One of my favorite quotes is this - " I want to be the type of person, that when I wake up in the morning, the Devil goes oh no, shes awake ."

 God Bless(:
