Vacation Bible School

I want everyone to know that I absolutely enjoyed Vacation Bible School this year at Plymouth Park Baptist Church. It was great to see how God used so many people to bring it off. God was glorified, and hats off to Jason Curry for having taken the bull by the  horns and trust God to see what great things He would do. The kiddos learned a bunch about God and the many ways to serve Him. What I liked was that the majority of the kiddos were not from Plymouth Park Baptist Church, and I feel we really reached the community.

World Cup Thoughts

I like June 11 - July 11 every four years, and during this time I realize how much soccer has taken root in me. My three favorite teams are USA, Paraguay and Mexico. There are 32 countries that qualified to be in this 2010 World Cup, and you need to see some of the games to see the level of soccer played in the World Cup. The 1st and 2nd place teams will move onto the Round of 16, and here is my prediction: Group A, Uruguay and Mexico; Group B, Argentina and South Korea; Group C, England and USA; Group D, Germany and Ghana; Group E, Netherlands and Cameroon; Group F, Paraguay and Italy; Group G, Brazil and Portugal; and Group H, Chile and Spain. Let me watch some more soccer and then I can make further suggestions as to who advances to the quarterfinals.

You need to pray for the christian athletes because the World Cup is always such a great platform for them to honor and praise Jesus Christ. There are quite a few christian athletes now, and they do give God the glory. Tim Howard, the goalie for the USA and KaKa, midfielder for Brazil are two of these world-class christian athletes.

Goooollllll !

World Cup Thoughts

I watched South Korea play yesterday, and I believe they will advance to the Quarter Finals. The USA, I believe will advance to the Round of 16. There is more prognostication to come as I observe the games played.

Lets ask God to annoint the workers with His special annointing, and lets ask God to give the kiddos an unforgettable encounter with Him!!! Please set about this task if you love the Lord and love other people.

I Understand!

I truly understand - what a challenge it is for a preacher to get a fresh Word from the Lord and then communicate it 100% to the people. I am preparing to preach on Sunday, June 13th. PLEASE PRAY FOR ME FOR THIS!

Blessings, Papi
