The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.
God's Warth is Coming... Are You Ready?
You had better listen to the words of Jesus, “Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter, but he that does the will of my father in heaven.” If ye by the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the flesh, ye shall live. If you live after the flesh, you’ll die! The cross does not give us a minor shift or two with regard to a few of our ethical and religious values. The cross radically disrupts the very center and citadel of your life from self to Christ. And if the cross has not done that, YOU’RE NOT A CHRISTIAN! My Friend face it, young rogue, you’re not a Christian until the cross has radically disrupted the very center and citadel of your life! And brought you from a life of commitment to serve self…What are the focal points of the reign of your self? If you’ve gone to the cross in union with Christ, it’s been shattered!" - Al Martin
I have been working the past few weeks in village well repair with my new host, Ruben Nkhata. I also have done some village preaching as well as preaching in multiple churches. At some point I will write a more detailed report here.

Malawians have cute kids!
"And he took of the stones of that place, and placed them at his head. And he lay down in that place to sleep." And we thought Jacob was doing something unusual!
This is brotherly love.
Or so we thought. That whole part about submit yourselves one to another in brotherly love just wasn't what these two had in mind when they got to the love one another section of their daily reading!
If love mean's submission, forget it!
I promise I was not chewing on a sock. I can't even see one!
"The revelation made of Christ in the blessed Gospel is far more excellent, more glorious, and more filled with the rays of divine wisdom and goodness, than the whole creation and the just comprehension of it, if attainable, can contain or afford. Without the knowledge hereof, the mind of man, however priding itself in other inventions and discoveries, is wrapped up in darkness and confusion."
