Some Pics from India
Here are just a few pics from my time in India. I was in a village called Ventrapragada which is near a city called Vijayawada. I was teaching pastors and others interested in Christian ministry how to teach and preach the Bible.
Almost th... Read more
Back from India
I had a great trip to India. It was hot, very hot, but the time was well spent and I'm very glad I went. It's good to be home, though I have some recovering to do. I took a "nap" at 4:00 p.m. yesterday and ended up sleeping for 8 hours. So now i... Read more
Heading to India Today
Well the day has finally come, and in a few hours from now I will board a plane and begin my 50 hour journey to India. The itinerary is Minneapolis to Newark, Newark to Mumbai (19 hours), Mumbai to Hyderabad, Hyderabad to Vijayawada, and then a ... Read more
It's been such a long winter, and wintry spring, that I sure am grateful for a gorgeous day in Minnesota! And I got to share it with my beautiful wife, and our daughter who turned 20 today!... Read more
Sickness and Hope
I'm up super-early this morning, sick as a dog yet again. As I sat here thinking about how often I've been sick this year, and my impending trip to India, one of my favorite passages from the Bible came to mind, John 15:1-11. I hope it blesses y... Read more
Three Days to India...And Sick Again
I don't know how to describe my feelings this morning. I have been sick so many times this year, so unable to stay healthy...oh I'm so sick of being sick. Beyond words.
And this time the stakes are higher as I'm heading to India in three d... Read more
National Day of Prayer
Today is the National Day of Prayer, and so I thought I'd post some New Testament verses on prayer.
"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the on... Read more
So Long Team Huddles--And Blogs?
Interesting to find the "huddle" feature missing today. I've said for years, that this was the "lamest" part of SP so it's not as though I'll miss this feature. After all, they're allowing you to earn six more points per day with message board p... Read more
Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!
It's April 29, and it's MinneSNOWta! To be fair, though, it's really nothing. Sleetish-snow that won't stick. Looks like I'll be heading to the gym again. I'd rather exercise outside, but in addition to the chilly temps and wet conditions, the w... Read more
Getting Ready for India
I'm set to travel to central India next week, so today, which is normally my one day off, is devoted to doing all kinds of stuff to get myself ready. I'm going there to teach Pastors in a Bible school for about ten days, and to learn from them a... Read more
Enjoying the Rain
It's a little chilly, and very windy--and a little gloomy--but I'm really enjoying this rainy day. Good thing, too, because we're supposed to get 3-4 more days of this. Hope you all are having a good one today!

Oy--5 Days of Cold and Rain!
It's not winter, that's true, but it doesn't feel a lot different! The forecast for the next five days in the Minneapolis area calls for clouds, relative cold, and rain. Oh 20-25 mph winds to boot!
Oh well, in about eight days, I'll be hea... Read more
Long story short, our family has been having serious car problems for the last couple months. We've prayed and trusted the Lord, and waited for his answer rather than trying to manufacture our own. Fifteen minutes ago I got a text that said, "Ca... Read more
Sick--But Found Out Why!
As I shared yesterday, I got sick yet again this week. It was short-lived, I'm feeling better, and I found out why I got sick. Sunday afternoon my family went to another family's house for Easter dinner. One of their relatives came who had been ... Read more
I can't believe it--my wife substitute taught at a local school on Monday and then ended up getting pretty sick that night. The works. The next morning I went to see how she was doing. I was in her presence for no more than 3 minutes and then sa... Read more
