No Excuses and No Whining!

How about Adam Bender! What, you haven't heard of him? Suffice it to say that a picture speaks a thousand words. Take a look here and be inspired.

You'll excuse the paucity of posts over the next couple of weeks as I am in final approach mode for our mission trip to Guatemala. We depart July 16 and return July 23.

Great. We will keep you in prayer. Have a great time.

John, I'll be praying for you and the others on the journey with you. I'm touched by the videos posted here too. WOW.

Paul said...

Wow from me too.

You've probably heard about this Aussie guy, Nick Vujicic (just Google his name and check YouTube - there are always stronger examples of people who are not giving up or giving in). Who is complaining now about minor disabilities? He is working on a book right now - title: NO ARMS, NO LEGS, NO WORRIES. Just imagine.

John, all the best for the mission trip - my prayers are with you and you team. Ps 121:5 - The LORD watches over you — the LORD is your shade at your right hand!

I am happy to check your blog just in time to read this - we came back from France today. Vaya Con Dios, brother!
