Pray for Kenya

Please pray for Kenya and specifically the Assemblies of God, there. I have been watching in shock as the news unfolds. I woke up this morning to a personal e-mail that there was a horrible attack urging me to pray. I am in regular contact with the missionaries there and just heard from them a few hours ago.

An AG church was attacked and at least 30-40 people burned to death. The death toll with the overall attacks today in Nairobi is at 250 so far. The pastor of the attacked AG church is badlly injured and they re trying to airlift him out to get treatment.

This is very personal to me as I know the people involved and the buildings/streets involved. As I'm watching the news, I recognize things.

By the way, I still have plans to go back to Kenya! Please pray that the unrest there ends quickly - that our precious people there are protected and that peace will quickly come. Selfishly I also pray it all ends soon so that nothing would hinder our going back there sooner rather than later...

Thank you for praying. If you want to read one of the newspaper articles about it, go here.

I read about the attacks this morning, however I didn't realize that it was an AG church. It hits close to home. Praying for all involved.

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

Excellent teaching on Criticism

My friend Pastor Leanne posted this today on her Myspace blog and I thought it was excellent and so timely. It's a blog post from Pastor Perry Noble , about criticism. I think it's perfect for the pastors at Relevant Church right now, as well as any other person going through this. I would like to note that when he says, "when God begins to move" it wouldn't necessarily just pertain to your church but to your life, your family, your marriage, anything that concerns you. I have found that the greater God does things in my life and the more He blessed me the more I should expect it. This teaching is good, so good I was almost wavin' a hanky in my office. Okay, here we go... You Will Be Criticized When God Begins To Move–Expect It And Get Over It. (Pastor Perry Noble at ) I've never met a devil worshiper–to my knowledge that is. When I first became a Christian I was convinced that I needed to do all that I could to be ready to c
