The last time that I ministered in Gowanda nursing home I was involve with trumpet quartet. We played the hymn “My Jesus I love Thee” the seniors were blessed. We are not professional trumpet players. We just want to glorify our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am working hard to master the trumpet. I have a long ways to go. The next time you hear or sing this wonderful hymn may it cause you to think of the love of our Lord that constrains us and how we showed love Him back. We love Him because He first loved us.
While I was with Lynwood Baptist Church for their missions conference, Pastor Steve Carpenter took the missionaries to Copperstown, NY where the Baseball Hall of Fame is located. It was very interesting to see how baseball came about. I learned a lot about baseball that I never knew. They had all the plaques of the different men that were members of the Hall of Fame. One thing that stood out to me was the fact that several of these men served our country in time of war. Some of them were involved in World War I and II and other wars that our country had a part in. One man was even involved in the Civil war. I appreciate men that have character and put importance in things that have more value than a bat and a ball, our country.
What a wonderful week I had in the town of Hadley, NY. It was a beautiful little town in the Anarondacks. Lynwood Baptist Church invited me to be with them on their missions conference. They were so kind and hospitable. I enjoyed my time with them greatly. I stayed with the Verras a family from the church. They have a beautiful house in the woods. They have a lake for a backyard. It was a beautiful place very relaxing and peaceful. It was so quiet that half of the time I did not receive any cell phone signal. Bro. Verra took me out on his boat and we toured the lake It was amazing! He introduced to me the great fish that swallowed Jonah!
During my recent visit to Toronto, Canada, I was given the chance to visit a Hindu temple during which a hindu ceremony was taking place. It broke my heart to see men, women and even children vow to several idols and think that they are worshipping a god. The Devil has so blinded this world lest they see the glorious gospel of our blessed Lord Jesus Christ. The temple is open to anyone that would want to visit it. It would be hard for me to go back a second time. The music that was being played gave me chills in my spine. It sounded like a bunch of demons howling. The aroma of the place was very different. The spirit of the place was hunting. This caused me to think of the missionaries in places like India that is saturated with Hinduism. Praised the Lord for what they are doing.
