Have Some Fun!
I hope your Thanksgiving was a great one, mine was. Now we are off and running down the last stretch toward Christmas and the New Year. Don't blink you will miss it as time seems to be running fast. During this season why not take advantage of time with your family. Get out of the house and do something fun. Even if it is different than what you normally do, just do something. Get off of that couch....get off of my blog and go have some fun with your kids! As evening was approaching on Thanksgiving I grabbed my son and his cousins and we headed to the school yard down the street for some street ball. We laughed, we argued, we sweated and we scored! But the best part was that we were doing something together.
Go have some fun and love your family!

Well it is time for turkey! Can you believe it? This year has flown by (in spite of all the storms of life). Wow, where did time go? For many of us, today is a preparation day (Wed) for the big spread tomorrow. Trips to the grocery store and work in the kitchen. Here at home I am getting ready to make my "Pineapple Cake" and some "strawberry bread" (and what ever else I decide). Tomorrow we will sit down and partake of the bounty that comes from living in this the greatest nation on earth (to quote Michael Medved). I have been privileged to travel around the world and after seeing and going I have come to this one conclusion... WE ARE BLESSED! So while we are partying, laughing and eating let's remember, we could have been born in a place with no hope, no help and no future. Celebrate with family and friends but while the party is going on, tell somebody how thankful to God you are for his favor in your life

ISRAEL TRIP 2010
Have you ever wanted to visit the land of Israel and walk the same paths of Holy Scripture? Well, you can make it happen. Come go with me! My good friend Ron Walls and I are returning to Israel in November 2010. We will be leaving the USA on Nov 2. If you are interested in joining with us call my office 916-689-7625. The contact person is LeSharon. All of you E-group guys (and wives) give us a call and get your name of the list. Pastor Wilmoth and other pastors are going to be joining with us as we take this journey through the pages of the biblical past. There is no better guide than Ron Walls (this will be his 57 trip to Israel).
I promise you, it will impact your life forever. I went 2 years ago and I wish I could go back every year. That how much I enjoyed it.
Don't wait, start the process of planning now. Don't get old and wish you would have gone!

Book of Isaiah - My Personal Devotion
In my personal devotion and Bible study I am studying the book of Isaiah. The deeper I have gotten into this book the more sobering it becomes. The first 3 chapters provide the sad account of Jerusalem's moral and spiritual collapse. I guess what is so sobering is to see so many similar trends taking place all around us. The new issues are really not new at all but God's people have struggled with these things since the days of the Isaiah. I know this is not a fun filled post this morning but my heart is stirred. As I drove through the streets of a city with no apostolic church and prayed for the Lord of the Harvest to anoint us to accomplish His will, I couldn't help but think how much of the harvest is being missed because the laborers can't figure out who they are.
Instead of work be accomplished in the vineyard...there is fighting at the cottage about how the vineyard should kept.
Maybe tomorrow my latte will stir me to joy and excitement, but today this Pastor's heart is heavy with the reality of where so many are headed.
May God help us all!

Evening of Worship
It's Monday morning and I am sitting in a little indie' coffee house enjoying my sugar-free vanilla, soy latte and reminiscing about last night's "Evening of Worship" at TRC. The place was packed, the music was pumping and there were guest everywhere. Before it was over the Holy Ghost was so thick you could almost cut it with a knife. It was a night of remembrance for all of us here at TRC. When it was all over we hung out in the coffee shop and fellow shipped with choir and guest that had come. There was a family that had never been to our church before who came up and introduced themselves with these huge smiles on their faces. After we exchanged pleasantries they brought their older teen-age daughter over and the dad told me that she had just received the Holy Spirit baptism. I turned to introduce myself to her and as I did I thought, something different was happening here! When she opened her mouth to speak to me, I instantly understood. She was still caught up in the Holy Spirit....She could not speak in English. The family was ecstatic with joy and all the young lady could do was smile and rejoice in tongues. This was 30 minutes after the service had ended. WOW! What a God! There is nothing like a sovereign move of God's presence.
I want to give a big shout out to our Minister of Music - Ben Vandiver. Thanks to you and the music team for a job well done.
Thanks to "VISION" for coming and ever more singing up in TRC! We love Gerry & Genny Mallory and Matt & Tishana Jones"
Also, we were privileged to have Evangelist Barry Claiborn in the house. Thanks for sharing with us..."To be convincing, you must be convinced"
Last but not least, to all TRC....you are the greatest church on this planet....LOVE YALL BUNCHES!

To all my friends in the lovely state of Washington, I am headed your way! Looking forward to being in Spokane on Friday night and Saturday. It is always a privilege to be with Pastor Rick Mayo. If you don't know the Mayo's you are missing out. He is truly an "End-Time Cat" (His famous line from years gone by). We are going to have a Holy Ghost time! Send up a prayer that I can be a blessing to all those that are coming to the youth conference. If you are in the area, then drop by.
