Hello All,

Three times a year, I will be writing little notes about myself and the ministry and posting them here for you to read. It is, unofficially, my "missionary update." As I am here and there, Canada, Guatemala, it is hard to do any type of regular mail out, so I'm simply making use of the tools of the world wide web: Blog, Facebook and Email. If you would like to officially be on the list of people who receive these updates, let me know, and I'll add your name. In the meantime, you can read the following.

Today is a reflective day.

I'm sitting in a coffee shop downtown Waterloo, while one of our students is at a memorial for his step-dad. I brought him in, and am making good use of the six hours I have before we are traveling back home tonight.

pain pain pain. Why do we live with it? If you don't know Christ, that's one thing, but Christ came to bring us liberty and those of us who profess Christ as our Lord...well, that was meant to be, and remain, a liberated life. Granted, we learn through suffering, this is true, but I'm talking about the pain that we bring upon ourselves because of our decisions, or because of the deceitfulness of the enemy and the traps we get caught in. or because of the lies we believe.

So I have a student burying his step-dad today. and I had four DEAR friends come for a visit this weekend and there is pain and confusion in them. And I'm requiring that the students write me reflections this year, every two weeks, and I've received the first batch and....pain pain pain.

we have GOT to start believing the Word of God and allowing the gospel to permeate, penetrate, punctuate, pollinate our lives.

Permeate.
Penetrate.
Punctuate.
POLLINATE.

cierto, o no es cierto?

do yourself a favor, and memorize a verse this week about WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST. and speak it out. and BELIEVE IT.
