Mission Trips to Lasang & Napisolan

August 19, 2009

I count it a great privilege joining my pastor on a mission trip last Thursday, August 13. Together with some men of the church, we visited the work of Bro. Armando Dusonan in Lasang, Bukidnon and Bro. Danilo Dao-an in Napisolan also in Bukidnon.

We conducted a preaching service in Lasang under their un-finished church building. The Lord blessed with 44 coming to trust Christ as Saviour. Those same people then followed the Lord in the waters of baptism. The Lord led my Pastor to immediately organize that work into a local church under the authority of its sending church, Bible Baptist Church in Napisolan. God truly worked in a marvelous way!

We then headed to Napisolan to have another service. 17 came to follow the Lord in Believers’ Baptism and were baptized at the river right below the church. Bro. Luke Pensader of Tibal-og and Bro. Armando Dusonan had the privilege of baptizing these new converts.

I thank the Lord for the wonderful opportunity He has given in allowing me to go to these places. We have to see the urgency and need to pray for more laborers in the harvest field of our Lord. I’m praying that God would continue to supply the needs of these mission works and empower its Pastors to preach the whole counsel of God.

I have written a couple of posts about twitter—why I decided to use it and things I’ve learned from the experience. Overall, twitter has been a positive experience, but not entirely. Here is a short list of the best and worst ways to use twitter:

The Best Uses of Twitter:

Encouraging Connections—Twitter is a great means of encouraging others and staying connected with helpful and strengthening relationships—friends, family, and ministry acquaintances—and what’s going on in the lives of others. I love following Pastor Chappell’s posts—they encourage me in a multitude of ways.  Hundreds of times others have strengthened and encouraged my spirit through their posts.

Edifying Words—Twitter is great for sharing quotes, scriptures, and principles that edify. I love following people whose hearts are obviously focused on spiritual matters and challenging subjects. Positive thinkers and spiritually minded people have a joyful heart and challenge me to be a better Christian.

Let Me See You in the Valley

August 5, 2009

Let Me See You in the Valley
Dr. Jack Hyles

You’re not what you are when things are going your way,
and you’re wearing the conqueror’s crown.
You’re not what you are when exalted and praised.
But you are what you are when you’re down.

You’re not what you are when applauded by men,
when your achievements are lauded and hailed.
You’re not what you are when success is your lot.
But you are what you are when you’ve failed

You’re not what you are on boulevard wide
you are what you are on the alley.
You’re not what you are on Everest heights.
You are what you are in the valley

You’re not what you are when softer winds blow.
You are what you are in the gale.
You’re not what you are on mountain peak high.
You are what you are in the vale.

You’re not what you are ‘cause riches abound,
don’t tell me how much you can make.
But wait ‘til battles and enemies come,
just show me how much you can take.

You’re not what you are when starting the race,
but whether or not you ever quit.
You’re not what you are because of talent and charm,
but the measure is courage and grit.

You’re not what you are when the truce is enjoyed,
when peace has climbed to its height.
But you are what you are when the battle has begun,
for you are what you are in the fight

You’re not what you are when all goeth well
and everything is going by form.
But you are what you are when the winter time comes,
for you are what you are in the storm.

So hang right in there, don’t waver, don’t falter, don’t bend,
‘Cause you’re not what you are when the race has begun,
But you are what you are at the end.
