I once read of an American journalist who inquired of an African pastor why Africans worshipped God so passionately. The African pastor responded, “You Americans believe in God. We Africans depend on God.” SELAH!
Found these statements by Grammy-Award winning singer and founder of The Fugees, Wyclef Jean, who is considering jumping into the race for the presidency in Haiti intriguing:
“So I would think with all my allies around the world that have loved my music, that have loved the message and the work we have done with Yele Haiti, they understand I can’t just sing right now.”
“When I am looking back at my career, I’ve sung songs all my life and I’ve watched singers sing songs about certain changes that we want, we say, you know what, we’re going to turn them into a reality.” – Wyclef Jean
Just read Welcoming the Stranger: Justice, Compassion & Truth in the Immigration Debate by Matthew Soerens and Jenny Hwang, an excellent book with biblical insight, good information, a balanced assessment of the dilemma our nation is in, and constructive criticism to inform a Christian’s response to the Immigration debate and lead us toward a positive solution to the crisis. Highly recommended!
This has been around for a lot of years. It’s an oldie but goodie. If you haven’t seen it before, you’re in for a real treat. 🙂
Claudia and the Georgia team arrived home safely today. We were very excited to see her walking toward us and so glad to be able to hug her after a week apart. She’s growing up so fast! During our ride back home we heard great reports about the ministry the team was involved in and some of the things the Lord was teaching Claudia during the trip. Claudia shared her testimony twice during the trip and was very active in all of the drama presentations. So proud of our girl! We also learned that she saw Joan Rivers in the airport and a former NFL football player Tito Wooten at a ministry location.
Happy Birthday to my gorgeous wife Adriana. I am so blessed to be called her husband, and it is a great joy doing life with her, raising our daughters and mentoring students for Jesus. Today we will go and pick up our oldest daughter Claudia from the airport as she returns home from her first missions trip, and that is the best present Mommy could ask for. Last night we went to the Yankees’ game with our friends Tommy & Naomi to celebrate Naomi’s and Ady’s birthdays – Naomi’s on the 22nd, and Ady’s on the 23rd. During the game Derek Jeter hit an inside-the-park home run, and Alex Rodriguez hit career home run #599. We had our cameras rolling hoping for #600 in his final at bat of the game, but he hit a solid double instead. So disappointing! lol! You can see all of our pics from the game here.
