Still on the road...
Just wanted to touch base with everyone. I am still on the road, but got to get on a computer. My wife got to South Dakota fine and is settling in to her new job. Praise the Lord! I am fine and got to eat Thanksgiving Dinner an hour ago here at FOB Warhorse. Happy Thanksgiving everyone and may God bless!
May be off tumblr for a good little while.
Wanted to post this so no one gets worried. Got a long mission coming up…possibly weeks and I am not sure if I am going to be able to post or not. If I do they will be few and far between as I usually have to search out the internet centers on different installations. My wife will be moving to South Dakota while I am gone and starting her new job. Prayers would be greatly appreciated for...

whomshallifear: Been going through a very difficult and humbling time lately.

Clarifying on persecutions.
Greetings, I pray that through this response you will better understand where I am coming from on this. I wrote “Remember that persecution is something God grants to us and strange as it may sound it is a privilege. I know this is hard teaching for some of us in the west to understand, but it is so!” From your e-mail it seems to me that you thought I was implying that God causes...
Re: E-mail about my posts from Sunday
I got the e-mail…I was very happy to get it. I think we have a misunderstanding of what I was trying to communicate about persecution and I will post a more detailed explanation and hit the points you mentioned. Also I read the sermon notes you sent the link to and will discuss that too. Thank you for reading the post in the first place and let us pray that through the Spirit that we can...
Extremely stressful and trying day for me. I didn’t react very well to it either. I get very hyped up when I feel my men are getting messed around. I have always tried to ensure that they get a fair shake all the time, cause that is what being an NCO is all about taking care of the men that have been placed in your charge. I got into it today with some that don’t really have my...
Remembering the reason I switched to Mac!
My wife got on skype a few hours ago and I have spent that time trying to walk her through removing a virus and some malware. When I was deployed to Bosnia in 2001-2002, just about the same thing happened. It is no fun trying to talk someone through something from thousands of miles away. At that moment I knew I was abandoning Microsoft and I have not looked back. My wife unfortunately has a...

But someone came and reported to them, “The men whom you put in prison are standing in the temple and teaching the people!” Then the captain went along with the officers and proceeded to bring them back without violence (for they were afraid of the people, that they might be stoned). When they had brought them, they stood them before the Council. The high priest questioned them,...
