I have been absent from this world for a while. I am preparing to leave Missouri and head to Illinois for a year on a vicarage assignment. I am hoping through the nest year I will be more faithful in corresponding what is transpiring in Staunton through this medium.

For some reason...

Have I said that I was going to try and be a little more faithful in updating this thing???
Well I am going to try dang it! The fact of the matter is that there has been a great number of break throughs in my teaching and in the students I am teaching, and I have been spending more time with my students than doing much of anything else.
Let me tell you that for the last week and a few days I have been setting up several meeting times and after school opportunities for me and my students to interact. Carrying over some ideas from America, and melding some ideas I have heard being thrown around by teachers here.
What is the greatest part of teaching? Or what is the greatest lesson you can teach as a teacher? For me in the setting that I am in and the culture I have been thrust into, the greatest lesson that I can teach is that I am strict and stern, but that I care more about the students than their behavior in class. The message and lesson that I try to teach is that I am there to be a conduit for God. I always try to relate a message of God and His love through my actions in the classroom.
Now this certainly takes a different meaning to people with different ideas about what or who God is. But there is one thing that I think we can agree on, is that any man or woman believer can be a testament to how great our God is.

This is my mission here.
The Lion and the Lamb are together combined in my spirit come forth into a blessing of the Ghost given to me in my baptism. May my soul rejoice to you in these words; The splendor of the King that is clothed in majesty and is waiting to be revealed to the people of this world, and I am here because I am a chosen member of the flock. Is this work reserved specifically for me? I believe so. How Great is Our God? All will see how great in just a short time, for what is the age of men when compared to the infinite God? My heart will sing this song to God, How Great Thou Art, Name above all Names, you have blessed me with the ability, you have blessed me with the passion, now if it is Your will Father, Bless our Kingdom With a harvest. A harvest so numerous that the store houses in Heaven overflow ontop of themselves.
Great is your faithfulness Oh God! As you wrestle with my heart on a daily basis I can do nothing but dissappoint. My flesh is my thorn, but on that day you will removed my flesh to reveal the spirit your Son has given to all men and women. Lord I will ask you to increase my spirit until my flesh has worn away, Remember your people, remember you children, remember your promise Oh God! Your Grace is Enough Oh God! For me and all people, if our lives are forfeit and we have your grace do we still not have all?

What is the point of this entry? An overflowing spirit of Joy and Peace, Hope and Love. have you not seen this before from me? Expect more, God is too good for this not to happen.

Just Going!
This is how I feel on Friday after teaching...

    ...that's known as being dog-tired! He's probably thinking "by the grace of God I did my best today" and dreaming of the day his weary flesh will be clothed in a glorified body. Hallelujah!

    What a beautiful sunrise (sunset?) How great Thou art, indeed!
