Taylor and Bernhard Langer

Bernhard Langer was our guest at The Journey for our Men’s Day. It was really great to meet one of my childhood heroes speak about Christ. Bernhard Langer is the real deal and was more than gracious to everyone. I’m glad Taylor and Tucker got to meet him. It was a great day!

Gas Buy-Down sponsored by The Journey

Pump 4 Team–getting it done! Had a great day at the gas buy-down!

50 people from The Journey served on Saturday. It was a wonderful time, and those serving really loved it.

We pumped 1769 gallons of gas, served 120 cars, and touched hundreds of lives!

Two different television stations came out: WPTV (NBC, channel 5) and WPEC (CBS, channel 12). They plan to air stories about the buy-down tonight (5:00, 6:00, 11:00).

Thankful In Everything

It has been a very busy season around The Glades this fall. Sugar cane harvest, sweet corn and vegetables are being planted and harvested, fall sports of every kind, and of course, lots of activities at church. When things get so hectic, I know I tend to slack off on my relationship with Christ. You know the drill (or maybe you are one of those “disciplined” people, and therefore you don’t)…late getting up and around in the morning because I was up too late the night before because I was trying to finish up the things I didn’t get done during the day.  Rinse and Repeat. This turns into a cycle of loneliness and isolation from the Father. I have to be very careful or I end up in “a funk.” Read more

Monday is for Missions :: Typhoon Haiyan

Please pray for the Church and missionaries in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan devastated many parts of the island.

Former members of First Baptist Belle Glade, Mike and Marti Foster, lead a ministry there called “Word of Life Philippines.” Here is some correspondance that I just received from Mike asking for prayers as well as a few updates and praises.

It is interesting how we had just talked about prayer in our services yesterday. Ironically, I believe it was preparing us to put into action what Jesus taught us in Luke 11.  We need to boldly approach God with our prayers for our brothers and sisters all around the world. We also need to pray for the devistation there in the Pacific. We pray for God to be glorified in every situation, much like the raising of Lazarus in John 11.

Here is a link to the letter Mike sent on Sunday evening…

Here is an email update from Mike early this morning…

Jesil Bambie Asaph PhilippinesHow You Can Help:

Many of you have written asking about how you can help! When things are under control and roads clearer we plan to send an evangelistic relief team. The biggest need will be trying to rebuild shelters for those who have lost their entire homes and possessions. We hope to bring a generator, rice, canned goods and roofing materials along with other supplies. Financial help is going to be needed to purchase these things. Please let people know!

There is so much looting and chaos right now. One pastor who was able to buy food for his family was robbed before he could get back to them. Our fellow believers need protection from the Lord!  We want to make sure funds go to help the ones who lost everything. Please pray that we will have wisdom and discernment! Thank you for your care and for being willing to get involved!

Monday is for Missions–James Calvert

When James Calvert went out as a missionary to the cannibals of the Fiji Islands, the ship captain tried to turn him back, saying, “You will lose your life and the lives of those with you if you go among such savages.”

To that, Calvert replied,

“We died before we came here.”

See: Galatians 2:20

“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20
