Happy Thanksgiving!

“I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close” (Revelation 3:8, NLT).
This scripture reminded me of my truck door smashed into my side 2 days ago from a wreck I was involved in... The door was unable to open until they got the "jaws of life" and opened the door. The enemy tries to mess you up and smash doors in but God always has a way to escape, I Cor 10:13.
By the grace of God I have only a broke wrist, bruised chest and leg but very uncomfortable and my nurse is giving me trouble. So today being Thanksgiving and tomorrow being my birthday, I have alot to be thankful for... especially my nurse!
We pray this day for us all to take the extra step and love on our families like never before. Grace is such a powerful thing from heaven.

Great Flexibility...
As I was working out this AM I thought about how "out of the box" or to put it another way, how flexible we need to be in ministry and how paramount this is in cross cultural works in the 1040 window. I have been on a stretching routine as of late and the more I stretch muscles and joints that have been stagnant the better I am feeling physically but the revelations from the Lord are pouring in... Get to a better position by stretching yourself. The more flexibility your range of motion gives you better performance. Paul said it like this..." I become all things to all men that I may reach some."
Again Kudos to Rodney, Karen and Coop for making the journey to the window and the great flexibility that the Lord has poured into their lives. Nothing will increase your flexibility like riding in a vehicle in Sri Lanka and India...

Amazing Shot...
Yes sir you don't get photos like this too often...
Pastor Michael Cooper from Sonrise Church in Cedar City, UT along with my good friends Rodney and Karen Jarrett from Fellowship Church in Zachary, LA were with me in Sri Lanka last week and what a blast we had... literally. In this picture we are finishing our week of adventure at Pinnewella Elephant Orphanage after a non stop ministry schedule. The last night of ministry an air raid by the guerilla faction called the LTTE dropped bombs on the city of Colombo. We had a dark ride home but the darkness of the night could not stop the Light of the World that is pouring out His spirit in abundance in Sri Lanka. Seems that the tougher times are more of God's grace shines upon us. Trying to get back to the US now to VOTE!
