Thank God for Steve,
Several things are weighing very heavily upon my mind. Before I continue I want to quote two verses of Scripture for they are extremely relevant to what is happening to me.
First the comforting verse: These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33 ACP/KJV)
Now the one that is causing me concern: If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you. (John 15:18 ACP/KJV)
Cecily and I are spending the year in New Mexico, satan hates it. This piece of scum we call satan is powerful and he absolutely hates the idea that Cecily and I are spending the year with our son. For the last ten years I have been getting our financial house is some sort of order to where we would be able to live on as little as $12,000 a year. But, what satan has done is throw road block after financial road block in our paths. Now I come to all of you and ask you to please intervene for me with the Lord, ask Him to please let me know what I am supposed to do and know. I am not going to elaborate beyond that, not because I don't want you to know or because of pride, but because I honestly don't know how to articulate the problems.
Last night I got up at 2:AM and went to the Lord in prayer telling Him how because I have been so financially and personally distracted I have not been praying for the things I should, but instead been consumed with praying for financial and personal help.
The second thing that is really bothering me and again, I have no idea how or what to do about it is the Indians here within 50 miles of Albuquerque.
Above is a typical Indian town on a reservation in New Mexico. Yesterday, Cec and I were troubled. We did not go to church, but instead drove out fifty miles west of Albuquerque on Route Forty. On our going and coming back we drove through or beside 4 or 5 pueblos, or Indian villages. In not one of them did we see any sign of a church, not one. Fifty miles from Albuquerque and not one church has been established on one of these reservation towns.
Now, I don't know that the tribal leaders simply refuse to allow Christian missionaries on their land or that the churches in the area are so involved in foreign missions, Africa, India, Russia, etc that they have just overlooked the Indians down the street from them. But for whatever reason, I have no idea what to do about it. My guess would be that for a Christian mission to be opened, assuming the Tribal leaders would not allow it to be built on the reservation, but ould have to be built out side of the reservation. The fiances needed would be $10,000 for land, $20,000 for a small prefab ranch or double wide trailer, $7,500 for a well and septic system and about $10,000 for the first year for a missionary family to live, less the second and subsequent years since after a year or so the garden should supply much of their food. So, once again I'm turning to you guys for prayer.
How I miss being able to drive 15 minutes to have an afternoon with Rev. Warren Feustel or spend a few hours with Pastor Jim Marstaller. How I wish I knew a Pastor out here and were able to go over and pick his mind as I could Rev. Frank Jewett. But alas, I don't so I must trust in the Lord and I must ask you guys to help me understand what it is He is telling me. I have had dreams, and they confuse more than help.
Sha'al shalowm Yruwshalaim.
Never ever forget this: There aint no purgatory!

The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for the President, pray for Attorney General John Ashcroft, pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
