Where has time gone?
It seems like only yesterday that my kids were in diapers! I blinked and they are staring me eye-ball to eye-ball! What happened? I was their age yesterday...or at least it seems that way. Now my knees don't work as good, my back aches, I need new glasses, my clothes aren't as cool as they used to be, I buy shoes for comfort instead of how cool they look. Man, I must really be getting old. (At least that is what my kids tell me). I LOVE IT! I love raising teen-agers. One reason is they make good "Rook" partners. Vacations are a lot more fun (I don't have to carry them through Disneyland). When I get old I am going to make them push my wheelchair through "It's a small world" 75 times and I am going to holler just to get them back. I love this stage of life in my home. It brings back so many memories. Watching them become, though painful at times, is fulfilling. I see them falling in love with Jesus for themselves and developing their own personal relationship with Him and it thrills me. I know that we can focus on the difficulties of these times of transition in our families but let's not overlook the joys that only come in these times. So, if you have teen-agers give em a hug and tell em your proud of them and then go kneel down and pray for strength to lead them through this period of their life.

Hey everybody, I just wanted to give a big shout out to all of my new friends from the Philippines. Since I have returned back to the USA there has been a surge of Philippine visitors to my blog. Thanks for stopping by. I hope that something will be a blessing to you. It is the least that I can do after how much of a blessing you were to me while I was in your lovely islands. I met so many wonderful people and it felt like God was uniting us together for the future somehow. I am so excited about the new recording that we did together and I can't wait for people state-side to hear you Boholano's sing for the glory of God. Keep the faith. Feel free to add a comment. We love you all so very much.

I have just returned from the Philippines. We had an incredible time in Tagbilaran on the island of Bohol. There is a great group of believers on the island. My family and I were part of a crusade team of about 30 or so from the USA and Canada under the direction of Pastor Stephen Buxton. On Friday night I recording a new P&W project live in the Philippines. I brought the band and back up singers with me and we were joined by the choir from Bohol who blew our minds. Thanks also to "Men of Judah" for helping us. We will be releasing this project after the first of the year. Keep the Philippines in your prayers. Such a lovely place with beautiful people but so many more need to know that Jesus Christ is the answer. I was moved to tears as I stood at the "Church of the Black Nazarene" as people crawled on their knees to kiss the feet of an ebony statue, praying that this idol could somehow help them. The Philippines has been blessed with great revival through the years but the need is still staggering. Please join with me in praying for God to strengthen the believers there and to bring another great wave of revival to the Philippine islands.
