BioI was saved over 30 years ago and on the day that I got saved I ask the Lord to always be my guide from deception as a young christian when it came my way.and not once has my Savior let me down. though today many have been deceived. I stand firm upon Gods word and Gods truth. my feet are grounded firmly in it and no man can convince me otherwise. God has blessed me with a wonderful wife for the last 36 years and six children ( four sons and two daughters ) and four granddaughters. I have faced many trails in this life's journey. I have made many mistakes and suffered loss but I have never lost faith in the Lord Jesus. my past is not as important as what lies ahead of me "the kingdom of heaven" this what I lone for everyday.I hope to be able to share with the members here some of what God has taught me through my trails and for them to share the same as well so that we may all glorify God in all things good or bad. I love all my brothers and sisters in the Lord and enjoy their fellowship and sharing Gods word building up one another. I love the lost and my hearts desire is that all come to Gods saving grace. I hope that this bio gives you some understanding of who I am. the lord comes first in my life and then my family. my fellow saints and a great desire to reach out to the lost.
Interestsreaching out to the lost sharing the gospel with them.
I'm very sorry that I haven't giving an update but I came back home with the flu,
I got a call this morning from my brother that he was picking Joe up to come home from the hospital " praising the Lord " he is able to come home this soon.
My brother an I spoke with him with and prayed with him while I was there but he was unable to talk much with all the tubes but I feel in my heart he's ready to except the lord Jesus into his heart trusting in him as his savior
when Dan took him home today he ask if he could come back later tonight and he agreed with Dan to bring his pastor with him.
for 35 years my heart has cried out to the lord that my friend be saved and right now I feel the tears of rejoicing very close and Gods answer to many prayers
I'm in prayer that soon we can all rejoice with the angels giving glory and praise to our father in heaven for Joe's salvation
Thank each one of you for your Prayers
I love you with the love Jesus from my heart
Joe and I met when we were 5 we grew up together and have always been very close just like brothers but when I was saved we drifted apart and Joe chose alcohol to control his life, I've tried many times leading him to the lord but his rejection has been the hardest I've ever faced I have prayed for many years lifting him up to God that he would send someone he could not reject leading him to the Lord.
last night my brother called and said that Joe was in the hospital he had called his sister an told her he was vomiting blood, she called EMS and when they got him to the ER he was taken into surgery, he had a large hole in his stomach and most of his vital organs was posioned and not functioning , he came through the surgery well but his condition is critical.
I'm leaving early this morning to visit him but before I leave I have come here to ask for prayer for Joe and I as well
please pray that the lord speak through me to my friend of 53 years whom I love very much that he will not reject the lord but will trust in Jesus as his savior.
I've not slept much tonight and ask for prayer that I'll make the 4 hr. trip safely
Loving you with the love of Jesus from my heart
Could this have anything to do with all the coffins I've heard about being shipped by railroad to certain city's throughout the U.S and the UN Camps being built ????

brother John I 'm not trying to change the topic but when speaking of movies and there influence on the Mind this came to thought , I was listening to a radio talk show a few years ago and the subject was about science fiction movies one thing that was very interesting was that all the calls coming into the show was from people (adults) whom believed in this fiction many whom believed that Jesus would come back in a space ship along with the other Gods in the universe to save mankind from destroying themselves. Wo!
I recently watched a clip of Clint Eastwood taking about preserving the old movie films before they are all lost in this clip he made a statement that'' Movies are apart of our lives and the development of one s thoughts and imagination '' and these films need to be preserved to keep up the spirit and love we have for them. Wo!
I was still in the youth ministry when the first left behind movie came out , a brother from the church and I went to see the movie after setting through it twice taking note of every word and action and then afterwards seeing the awl in which many where caught up in after seeing the movie, I refused to entertain the minds of the youth to such false teachings that perverted the Word of God. as a youth pastor I was N OT to entertain the hearts and minds of the youth but to teach discipleship to the youth building them up in the word of God to go out unto the lost of this world this I believed in doing so until the day I retired.
Yet I was shocked when the pastor made the announcement one Sunday morning encouraging the Adults to see the movie left behind, my thoughts was how could one encourage the hearts and minds of the adults to see a movie not inline with the word of God even though they haven't even seen the movie and are going along with what they have read or heard about the movie Wo!
of course they were all adults and their minds could not be subjected to such imaginations or perversions it's just entertainment. ''Very Not True ''
when I was a kid I got the nick name Butterhead because I loved to churn the butter and help my mom and my aunt make buttermilk I was the first to get a glass of butter milk " real buttermilk " what you buy in the stores is full of junk and taste nothing like real butter, I agree with bro Larry Yuk'
brother Garry's recipe sounds good , though I am wondering if goatmillk will work in the recipe ? anyway thanks bro Garry for the recipe I'm gonna give it a try.
as for Maple Syrup I love it when I can find the real Syrup if not I prefer real Honey.
Brother John Thank you for posting this thread I often just read and wait to see which way the thread heads and mostly don't post for this reason .this is a good topic but just as many others it can go bad very quick and it appears to be headed that way
