Are Beloved Grandpa Great (A Man Of Faith)

Grandpa Great, or as I called him most of the time little Grandpa, Gave us a great example of how God wants us to live are lives, which is something we will never forget. His joyful attitude, gracious heart, spirit of love, sense of peace, grateful mindset, dedicated and strong way of working, and his approach to God are things he showed us and we should show others. God placed him in our lives for a purpose and reason. although we are not with him now for this short time on earth we will rejoice and praise are King of Kings and Lord of Lords together with the angels for all eternity. God has a purpose for are lives and will do great things through us when and if we allow Him to be the center of are vary being. We need to remember him as a man who loved God and loved People, and whose desire was please the Lord with all he was.

We love and miss are beloved Grandpa Great who we cant wait meet again in a place where suffering and pain don't exist.

Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not be dismayed, for I am your God.

Isaiah 41:10

The day with Grandpa John

Well today I went over to Grandpa John and Grandma Ginger's house and got a lot done. First I trimmed the tree in their back yard that was scraching up the trailer and hannging over the fence. then we hauled it up to the front patio. after that job was done I helped them put the trailer back in the yard, which sounds easy but was a real pain. then I hopped on their roof and saw that they had some dirty windows which hadn't been cleaned in 22 years, said Grandma Ginger. then I got some cool picts of me on the roof since i was already up there. It was a ton of fun but a lot of work, bit it was all worth it and i even earned some money. Grandma Ginger and Grandpa John are the best and are such a blessing to are family!

Well untill the next post

Mexico Trip

Well last weekend I took a trip down to Mexico with my church. It was loads of fun and we got a lot accomplished. The ride up was a lot longer than the way back but the wait was well worth it. as soon as we got there we went to work. First we loaded and sorted (by age and gender) over 1,200 gifts and loaded them into different trucks, than we got cooking. we had to prepare enough food to feed 1,500 people in only a day in a half. We made spaghetti all night and all day, which was a long and tiring task. After all the food was prepared and the presents were all sorted by age and gender we went around and told everyone we saw in the pore rock point neighborhood about what was planned latter in the day. Somehow over 2,000 people showed up and it was a crazy, fun filled, mad house. Wile we were busy feeding everyone and giving gifts out we had Spanish speaking pastors going around telling the great news of how Jesus came and payed for the sins they committed by shedding his holy and perfect blood. many came to know the lord and it was well worth the all the hard work. I had a ton of and cant wait until next month when I get to go back and build a house and distribute food!

I am back!!!

Well it has been a long time sence the last time i posted but a ton of crazy things have happened to me in the last few months. The first thing that happened was that I dislocaand my knee and tore a bunch of ligaments. this happened after a bible study, me and my friend steffin' who is 19 years old and is way bigger than me"were wresteling and when he had my legs tangled up I slipped on the rug and some how my leg ended up out of place. I have been wearing a brace for the last 2 weeks that dose not let me bend my leg.the next freak acedent that happened to me was about week agow when I was riding a quad up at my friend Arron's cabin and some dirt flew up into my eyes, I lost controle of the quad and crashed into some kind of a post going about 40 mph. this knocked me out and the next thing i know I woke up in the hospital. I ended up having a bad concussion and some internal bleeding in my head. I was in the hospital for about 2 days but it felt like 2 years. I am doing a lot better but still have a headache and vary bad whiplash. so sorry for not keeping up with the blog but i will start posting more.

this is so cool

In the public hospital of ItaguaĆ­ (RJ) last weekend
was born a girl with hands joined together, like one who's praying.

The doctors told the parents that they would operate the hands of that girl, and that they would give her
antistatic. The operation was easy because it seemed like the hands were simple glued together one membrane (skin) layer apart.

When they opened up the hand of that child, you can't imagine what was written...

JESUS IS COMING BACK... The doctors started weeping and all that were in the hospital.

The suburb of ItaguaĆ­ is undergoing a movement now, People that have withdrawn from church are going back and others are receiving Jesus
Christ as the only savior.
God send that child simply to convey that message.
After a few hours she died: JESUS IS COMING

I have received now I'm passing on!!!

The Lord of Lords is coming back.
"Seek you the LORD while HE may be found, call you
upon Him while He is near:" Isaiah 55:6

I'm not sure if this is true but it's a cool story!

Well, today after church I went with grandpa John and Grandma Ginger to cosco for lunch and then to there house. When we got there we played stack them, then Grandpa John put me to work. I mowed the lawn and then trimed some trees that were comming over the fence. It was a ton of work, and the 110 degree heat didn't make it any easer. It was fun. I was glad to do it though.

family camp

The last weak me and my family drove up to California for family camp. It was amazing, they have all kinds of activities like zip line, rock walls, fishing, and a big lake with a huge thing in it called a blob. The blob looks like a big pillow and when you are on it and someone ells jumps on the other side of it you go flying, it is so much fun. The food was good and so was are waitress, her name was Kiniki and she was so funny. the speakers were great, and so was the worship. my favorite night there was when we hiked up a mountain, had worship and a message, a few camp teachers gave there testimonies, and then we song some more praise songs to the Lord.

I can't wait to go back next year!

well, a few weeks ago I went on a mission trip to Brazil. it was loads of fun but a lot of work. It took about 2 days of flying to get there but when we finally arrived our luggage didn't which was a big problem. Eventually a few of us got our luggage. We got on the boat and sailed away to reach some of the villages and teach them about Jesus Christ. The people we went to help have hardly anything but thanks to different donaters some of them have schools and church buildings. It was an amazing trip.

Well Grandpa/uncle John is going into surgery for his knee today so I wanted to ask everyone to pray for him, that it all goes well in the operating room, and that he will have a fast recovery. I am sure he is going to need our prayers

The Fellowship of the Unashamed

I am a part of the fellowship of the Unashamed. I have the Holy Spirit
Power. The die has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has
been made. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I won't look back, let up, slow
down, back away, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense,
and my future is secure. I am finished and done with low living, sight
walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tame visions,
mundane talking, chintzy giving, and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or
popularity. I don't have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised,
regarded, or rewarded. I now live by presence, learn by faith, love by
patience, lift by prayer, and labor by power.

My pace is set, my gait is fast, my goal is Heaven, my road is narrow, my
way is rough, my companions few, my Guide is reliable, my mission is clear.
I cannot be bought, compromised, deterred, lured away, turned back, diluted,
or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the
presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the
pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of

I won't give up, back up, let up, or shut up until I've preached up, prayed
up, paid up, stored up, and stayed up for the cause of Christ. I am a
disciple of Jesus Christ. I must go until He returns, give until I drop,
preach until all know, and work until He comes.

And when He comes to get His own, He will have no problem recognizing me. My
colors will be clear for "I am not ashamed of the Gospel, because it is the
power of God f
or the salvation of everyone who believes.." (Romans 1:16)

My Dad showed me this and I love the message it sends. It realy touched me and I hope you all get as much out of it as i did.

My first post

I finally got a blog. It took me awhile but now I can talk to you all. This summer has been very busy so far. I went to Holly Lake for a week and camped out with my grandpa. When we go back we packed up and went to Brazil on a missions trip down the Paraguay river and went to some villages down there sharing the gospel. When we got back my parents left for a pastors conference. Meanwhile Justin, Emily, and I stayed with my grandparents. Then we all packed up again and drove to Oregon to visit family. It was so good to see all of my family and cousins and aunts and uncles up there. They convinced me to make a blog so here it is. I'm sure I'll talk to you all frequently.Talk to you soon.
