For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion. [Ecc.9:4]

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. What shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
Surely the people is grass. The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand forever. The world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. Use this world but not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away. Let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is;but exhorting one another and so much the more, as you see the Day approaching.
If we were in Africa or Bolivia, we might be considered well off but in this country we seem a little odd for living in a rv, but what a blessing it is to be debt free and own your own home!
Its a level most people would chringe at having to experience. But I really feel blessed and free not strapped down or intangled to much.
However,we are saving up to rent a house possibly closer to the city if God Wills. The benefits of being closer for ministry is something God has been putting on my heart for sometime now. If anyone out there could atleast pray for His help in this area we will be thankful.
Pray for the Church that God would raise up true pilgrims and strangers willing to forsake all they have in this life to follow the King !
Last night brothers went downtown together to witness. There was a number of good conversations that I hope will lead to something more. Two brothers got their sings stolen, one brother had a water bottle thrown at him and another brother got semi assaulted by a older woman. But Praise the lord because where iniquity did abound grace did much more abound! One brother after his sign got stolen decided to go looking for it just in case they ditched it in the trash. After searching for about a block there it was! It was on the ground under a police officer who was writing the women who took it, a ticket. The brother was able to testify of Gods forgivness and get his sign back, praise God. Plus he was able to get the women off the hook by not pressing charges, Thank yeshua for dropping the charges against us and forgiving us. Just as his love has provoked us to good works hopefully the women will see the error of her ways and be provoked aswell. Let us walk in newness of LIFE !
Its been a busy past 6 months but im thankful for all thats been getting done. My wife just had another baby girl and were feeling blessed. So thankful she is healthy and happy. Im hoping to do some updating soon . A brother is lending me a laptop to use for a documentory project so while I have it ill try to put it to good use. For all you brothers and sisters who long for fellowship im sorry I havnt put more on here for you. I will try to actually get some things together just for you. I pray I can be diligent with my time and press into edifying the body.
Can you see the end of this ratted old wall paper ? With a little vision and diligence to follow through, I can envision something beautiful.We need vision to see the end of what God has begun in us brothers and sisters. if we are to endure to the end we need to have a vision.*[[Jas 5:11]] KJV* Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.
*[[Pro 29:18]] KJV* Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
So its been awhile now bout 4 months since we landed in oregon. I sold my camper van bought a pull behind camper and started putting it all together on the side of a hill. Its been alot of hard work and its still not done but its warm and dry. It seems like the rain has made its way for the season, I just barely made it in by the skin of my teeth! I recycled a host of materials like...outside deck...windows...2x4s from a carport, brothers got some vinyle billboards , I used one for my roof, along with two huge tarps from harbor freight. Free sliding glass door and a bunch of screws (thanks brother joel) its slowly coming together thank God. Im looking forward to some cozy nights ,a hot drink and Gods word ! Its a pilgrims paradise and im not gonna take it for granted.Yeshua knows what we need,even the birds make nests!
