Knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

We need to start young so we don’t say, “I wish I knew Spanish, __________” when we are old.
Now more than ever, followers of Jesus Christ in the Middle East need our prayers, encouragement and support. In recent days, churches in Israel and Iraq have been attacked by religious extremists. The seige of a church in Baghdad by radical Islamic terrorists leaving 58 dead and 67 injured received significant international media coverage. The firebombing of an Arab Christian church in Jerusalem — possibly by radical ultra-Orthodox Jewish terrorists – has received almost no media coverage. Yet our brothers and sisters in both places need us to intercede on their behalf, and to mobilize others believers to pray for them and to stand with them in their time of need. This is a key mission of The Joshua Fund, mobilizing Christians to bless Israel and her neighbors in the name of Jesus, according to Genesis 12:1-3.
- Let us pray for the courage of believers in both countries
- Let us pray for the healing and recovery of those wounded
- Let us pray for the comfort of the families and friends who have lost loved ones
- Let us pray for the pastors in both countries to have courage to stand for Jesus Christ amidst the persecution, and for the believers there to rejoice that they have been chosen by the Lord to suffer for His Name, as instructed in the Scriptures
- Let us pray for the perpetrators to be brought to justice, but also that the Lord would open their eyes, that they would repent of their evil acts, and that they would come to faith in Jesus Christ
- Let us pray that the good news of God’s great love, forgiveness and salvation through faith in Jesus Christ would continue to be proclaimed without shame or apology or fear at this critical time.

Hey go to this link and check out the testimonies! MY316.com. Austin Suggs has the most hits for a student. Check out George Clark’s testimony too!
Below is our memory verse for September 2010. It is short and easy to memorize but it packs a powerful message in a few words. We know that “faith, hope, and love abide” but the greatest is love. But do we recognize that if we don’t love, we don’t know God“. Wow, the words of Jesus in Matthew 7:22-23 are scary to say the least: …depart from Me I never knew you“. Could it be that that love factor is more important than anything else?
1 John 4:8
He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. (NKJV)
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. (KJV)
But anyone who does not love does not know God–for God is love. (NLT)
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. (NIV)
Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. (ESV)
The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. (NASB)
El que no ama, no ha conocido a Dios; porque Dios es amor. (RVR)
Last Friday, the Youth and College girls had their FIRST ANNUAL* Slumber party!
They had dinner prepared and served to them by our dashing gentlemen of the Youth and College class!
Kerrie, Evelyn, and Julia of Scrapin’ Gravy blessed us with wonderful worship:
And Kerrie led us into a time of teaching of “No excuses”. We are all sinners. We are all in need of Christ and our past does not dictate the ability of Christ to love us! We broke up into small groups where our ladies were able to pour their hearts out to each other, pray for each other, and confess things that needed to be confessed. God spoke to our beautiful ladies in amazing ways!
One of our goals was to promote fellowship within our departments. We accomplished this goal TENFOLD by the end of our Party with games that sent them questioning each other in order to fill in the blanks:
Then we divided the girls into 6 groups and had a scavenger hunt in the dark!
By the end of our Party, we had ladies that didn’t know each other in the beginning playing games with each other, praying with each other, and several ladies that met Christ in powerful ways!
Fun? CHECK CHECK!
Godly instruction? CHECK CHECK CHECK!
Please watch for MORE upcoming events!
*=I make no promises of ANNUAL! LOL
