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.
