Requesting Prayer for Shannon

Shannon Hopkins is our London connect. She's faced a great deal of hardship lately in that a funding source just pulled out on her four months early. So she could really use a ray of sunshine. She's sent the following asking for prayer:

Hey everybody! I just wanted to let you know that I will be meeting with Paul from CMS (church missionary society) tomorrow at 3pm UK time.
This is about the possibility of me getting my visa through CMS. I would really appreciate your prayers for this meeting and for a wide open door of invitation to be here!


You can email her at shopkins3@mac.com.

Diaper your goats...or else!


Click on this link and listen to this report from Iraq. I heard this on NPR this week and it has stuck with me. I'm not interested in the war aspect of the story but the religeous. How can folks follow the laws and dictates of a religeous leader when more and more repressive and oppressive proclamations come out? I cannot believe that anywhere in the Koran does it say you must avert your eyes from a goats behind or be condemned, and then murder the shephard. Or you must arrange vegetables in a certain way that do not suggest ...something. And that people will take up arms and murder those who "tempt" you with these displays is even more outrageous.

I'm not looking to point a discussion a certain direction, just to get your opinions on this.

Need DIrection?

Wellspring . . . Space

Just follow these directions to get insight into life, or maybe not:

From Tomball:

* Go south on 249. (Juli, that means take a left if you were driving down 2920 from Mainstreet)
* Take the Grant road exit
* Turn right onto grant road
* Turn left onto Copeland/Balcrest.
* Turn left at Mist
* Turn right onto Timbermeadow
* Go to the back of the street, our house is on the left. Look for the truck.

See everyone at around 7:00. We'll throw on a pot of spagehetti.
