We were blessed to be able to go on another mission trip with JOY FM the Christian radio station in St. Louis again this year. Larry, Heather and I went to Trinidad (Michael went to Mexico in June). Trinidad is 7 miles north of Venezuela and is considered a Caribbean Island. Their primary religions there are Muslim, Hindu and Christian. There were 50 of us who went and Heather found her long lost sister - Hadassah in Trinidad. It's a place I would love to go back to...the people are so lost! I have never seen an "idol god" before...wow - this island has some MAJOR darkness! We ministered to so many different people and kids...Larry was sick most of the time from the dust and mold in the stage that our team replaced but he made it through.

Here's the basis behind it in my own opinion: You start a pinterest account and during that process the system automatically has you choose pictures for thi…
It doesn't take but a few minutes of watching the news to quickly realize that America is heading into some tough times. There seems to be alot of evil going on. I rejoice in the fact that we are not "of this world"...we're living for the King of Kings and awaiting His return. I went to the book of Habakkuk today and found comfort in knowing that God is still in control of the world despite the apparent triumph of evil. Habakkuk saw a dying world back there in 612 BC...a world that troubled him at that time and though I like to think in my mind that it has be worse now than it was then...maybe it wasn't? I mean they had whoremongering and homosexuality going on back then too...isn't that crazy to think about? Remember Sodom & Gomorrah? It may "seem" as though the wicked triumph but eventually they will be judged, and righteousness will prevail. Judgment may not come quickly, but it WILL come. God is the creator of this world and He is at work in…
