What in the World is Going on?
Mood:  cheeky
Topic: BCM International


In BCM (Bible Centered Ministries) International's world that is. For some time now I have been looking for ways to tell you about BCM International and some of their ministries. Sarah and I have been involved with this great mission for almost 13 years now and have grown to love the organization and the people in it. In my zeal to find ways to promote it on my blog, I totally forgot something that was as plain as the nose on my face - The BCM World Magazine! BCM puts out this fantastic magazine three times a year and publishes it for free on their website. They will soon be coming out with their spring edition, but here is a link to the great fall magazine that focused on short term missions.

Sarah and I have wanted to go on a short term mission trip to a foreign country for what seems like forever, but the Lord has not lead us in that direction yet. Perhaps, however, he is leading some of you to consider short term or even long term missions. As you peruse last fall's BCM World Magazine, won't you pray that God will use you in any way that He leads? Perhaps he wants you to go or, perhaps He wants you to send, by supporting someone prayerfully or financially. Whatever the case may be, please read and pray with an open heart. Click here or on either the above banner or below picture to get to the magazine.

MckMama's on a Trip
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Compassion International
Compassion Bloggers: Kenya 2010
No, not my MckMama, the MckMama. Sarah is away right now, but I'm talking about someone else.
Do you remember me talking about having the shock of my life when I got about 300 page hits in one day a few weeks ago. If you recall, it was because I had commented on someone's question about what to do for his wife on Valentine's Day. I told them about something that I had done years ago for Sarah and he ended up doing it for his wife. His wife was McMama~a very big and highly respected blogger. She blogged about it and left a link to my blog.
Well, she and her husband sponsor a couple of children with Compassion International (a couple after my own heart) and they were selected to go on one of Compassion's blogging trips to Kenya. Compassion takes several bloggers on a trip to meet their sponsored children and to tour the Compassion work in that area. In return, the bloggers then blog about their trip every day for the whole time they are there. Well, the trip began today. You can find out all about their trip by clicking here or, if you are a twitterer, you can click here to go to their twitter page. To find out more about Compassion, click here.

Another Creation - You Know What I'm Preparing You for Don't You?
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Ministry

Yep. It's another creation using the Graphic's Toolbox. You do know that I'm about to write a review for this don't you? Do you think that I just might recommend it? You betcha!

This creation is a Baby Shower invitation that I for a lady whose children occasionally come to the mission. Even if they don't always come, we try to minister to all of the people that live in the low income housing area. 

Anyway, I thought I would combine a little ministry with a little TOS Crew reviewing. Hope you like it.

Ministry Moment & Have I Mentioned that I Love This Program?
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Ministry

You know, sometimes people think of doing big things when they think of being a missionary. They imagine going deep into a jungle and winning a savage tribe to the Lord. Or, moving to a third world country and working with street children or the homeless. Maybe you think of going to a more modern country but a country that is steeped in false religions. You might have to learn a new language and leave your friends and families for years at a time.

All those things could happen, but more often they don't. Many times it's not great things that happen, but little things. There are times when God does a miracle and many are led to Christ quickly, but often it is the little everyday things that you do that show God to the unsaved. 

Really that's the way of all ministry. Often you don't see any results, but you keep plugging away and showing Christ in the small things that you do. Today was one of those days. One of the ladies that Sarah is discipling invited us to her boyfriends birthday party. She asked Sarah to help her bake a couple of special cakes and prepare for the festivities. The following is the result of her efforts.

Can you tell that those are golf clubs in a golf bag?

And this is a golf club hitting a ball that says 46 on it.

Sarah did a really good job. Harley didn't expect it at all.

She then asked if I would make a certificate for him because she was giving him money to buy a hunting and fishing license for his birthday. Since I have been using the Graphics Toolbox program in order to review on the TOS Homeschool Crew, I jumped at the chance to make it for her. This is what it looked like.

The big hunting and fishing license that he wanted was one that included all of the animals that you can hunt in TN - deer, turkey, grouse, etc. Can you tell that I like Graphics Toolbox?

Anyway, pray for this whole family. Sarah especially has been a friend, adviser and counselor to them, and we are hoping that the little things is what will lead the unsaved members to the Lord.

Really it's the little things that count anyway in life. It's the day to day sometimes mundane things that people see. Remember, just because you don't go to the jungle or to some foreign country does not mean that you aren't a missionary. You can be a missionary to your neighbors just by being an example and a blessing to them every day.
