All in all our summer has been blessed and fruitful. There is always more to be done, and things will pick up again soon, but for this week we are recharging our batteries - which is especially needed for Rosemary and little 2.0.
Here are some random bullet points:
- Our church's English Camp this year went GREAT. This was probably our best camp yet. There was great planning beforehand, we had a great group of helpers, and God moved in a great way. Praise the Lord for that.
- There have been a series of attacks against Christians in Pakistan. Over the weekend 8 people were killed - mostly burned alive - as Muslim mobs attacked the Christian minority, setting their houses on fire, and even shooting them with guns, because of a vague and unverified claim that some Christians somewhere had desecrated the Quran.
This "religion of peace" teaches that anyone who desecrates the Quran should be killed. And of course, what qualifies as "desecration" is open for interpretation...
So, with this unverified claim, Muslim mobs attacked not one Christian - but the whole Christian community.
Articles about it: Here and here.
The Bible says that we should 'Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.' (Hebrews 13:3) We should remember to pray for our Christian brothers and sisters who are suffering persecution in Pakistan.
- Colorado Man Fights Lion with Chainsaw - Article here.
A true Coloradan - this guy was cutting wood, when he got attacked by a mountain lion. The Colorado man fought the lion with the chainsaw and won.
I just hope that the next time I get attacked by a mountain lion, I have my chainsaw on me too. That really turns the tables on 'em.
