Hebrews 12:1-3

Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we'd better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we're in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he's there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!

1/2 way to Chicago

Well we made it to Sarnia today and supprized The Persad's for a little visit. Tomorrow we plan on getting into Chicago settling to our hotel. Traveling goes pretty well, sandra is comfortable in the van and we don't have to make any extra stops. The girls are spending the week with the Martins at camp and I'm sure they are having a great time. Mike


  1. "The battlefield is often where we not only win victories but also where we gain wisdom and compassion. It is not so much in the times of peace but in the times of suffering that we gain the greatest understanding of the unconditional love of Christ." Malina Enlund

    Praying for healing and that the power of Jesus would manifest in your lives and in your situation.

  2. God never promised us that we will not go through hardships; He promised us that He will be there for us in the midst of them. Remember when Jesus told Peter that satan was going to try and sift him like wheat (Luke 22:31)? The Lord assured Peter that He would carry him through and that on the other side of the trial Peter would be able to strengthen his brothers. Paying for your family.

  3. Mike and Sandra - so proud of you for pursuing this additional rehab. Just back from a great week at Muskoka bible camp with the boys - Dave Epstein was the speaker - he sends his greetings and he and Sandy are praying for you both. Safe travels and my prayers and thoughts are with you both.
