"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider himn who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart."

Hebrews 12:2-3

"You see, at just the right time, while we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

Romans 5:6-8

How great is the love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him.

1John 3:1

His master replied, "Well done, my good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness."

God's plan...and His timing...are perfect.

Proof?

Doug knows that my ultimate goal is long term missions work in Africa. I've brought the idea to him a few times. Well, in church yesterday, I'm talking to one of the elders and mentioned it to him, how I'm having a tough time getting the ball rolling (it's been nearly two years...) and he said, "Mark, how's this for God's timing. First thing you should do is a short term missions trip and as God would have it, we have one spot open for the church's trip to Haiti in June."

Got a call tonight from the trip's leader and told him that money was an issue. (the flight, incidentals, etc.) "No worries, Mark, there's enough money left in the scholarship fund".

I thought I was going to BUST. Folks, you are reading the words from one blessed man. God knew...He just knew what was on my heart (He put it there !!) and opened this door for me and I'm certain through faith and trust in Him, that serving Him in Africa will one day happen.

I stayed patient, I perservered, I prayed. The door has been opened.

I'm about as excited as I've ever been. Too awesome. Thanks for taking the time to read this, sorry I went on 'n' on...

FANTASTIC MARK!! God is truly amazing.

Thank you for sharing your good news with us. I will pray for this trip and for you.

My son will go to China on the 23rd for a month long mission. I've been praying for him and his group on this trip.....and myself, China can be scary when it comes to religion or anything to do with God.

Anyway, great for you, I never cease to be amazed at how God works.

Nancy

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, and the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us."

2 Corinthians 5:18-20

Mark Congrats brother. The family ius keeping you in our prayers. Will you be at DFW for any lay over?

I talked to a guy last week who has spent the last 30 years of his life in Pau Pau New Guinea as a missionary. He talked about all the blessings he has received for following God's calling, the peace and serenity of a life walked within that context despite any hardships or troubles involved. A life lived compelled by God's love to serve others. All those who do so are my heroes. Prayers for safety and peace to all.

Thank you, Nancy. It never ceases to amaze me either. It's not only that, but God's timing and His plan are so perfect and thus, not in accordance with our time or plans. His are perfect, ours are disaster. Anyway, I'll pray as well for you and your son. China...hmmm, that's a tough call. God bless him. We need to send the word out to all nations...

Doug man my brother...I don't want to call my plans "tentative" because I'd like to think they're a bit more definitive than that. Let's call 'em "preliminary". As such, I have no idea what my travel itinerary is. As it is now, I might be on a separate, later in the day flight. Other than that, I don't know much. Should I in fact have a layover in Big D, I'll be sure to bring along a spiffy Patriots tee shirt. Your size.

"we need to send the word out to all nations...", is there a but in there, because believe me, I seriously questioned Seth about this. He assures me he believes this is what he is supposed to do. So, I have tried not to push him too hard, I mean, who am I to say different? I'm not real comfortable with it, I pray about it, but...I'm not sure I have the peace that passes all understanding about it. Any thoughts from everyone would be greatly appreciated.

And now, dear lady, I am not writing you a new command but one we have had from the beginning. I ask that we love one another. And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that we walk in love."

2 John 1:5-6

it's looking like my layover is in Miami. I'm having some passport (expired)/vaccination(had mine two years ago) issues.



I've got all kinds of people working feverishly to make this happen for me.

God bless their hearts...

thanks DUG. It's a comforting feeling knowing that someone is praying for you. I pray for you too all the time, as you know. I figure it this way, I have my trust and faith in God, if He wants this to happen...it will happen. If He has other plans, I follow. By hook or by crook, I'm doing missions work...sooner or later.

you're one of the greatest blessings in my life.

thanks man.

there's been a tugging at my heart the past couple of years for me to go beyond where I'm at spiritually. To go out and help and serve. I ask Him all the time, I ask Him to teach me to listen. He's broken me down to virtually nothing lately and now, I believe, is forming me into the plans He's had all along. Me...fighting and kicking and screaming in all my pride and vanity and ego all these years, I've finally surrended completely to His will and He's opening doors I never even knew existed. It's amazing.

Life is full of good things and good people. It isn't hard to find either one. God is truly good to us.
