Waiting for the Gun

Rich Davis on August 7, 2017

Start Well  Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. (1 Corinthians 9:24) In sports as in all of life, there are rules. The Jamaican world champion runner, Usain Bolt, among other things holds the world's record (9.58) for running the 100-meter dash. One of the hardest aspects of this run for him was getting a good start off the blocks. It's quite a challenge for a man who is 6 feet 5 inches to straighten up off the starting line from a...

Back to the Future

The Birth Place of the Reformation - Germany  As mentioned in our last newsletter, we planned to fly to Berlin, Germany to attend a meeting together with other ABWE leaders from several European and Mediterranean countries. Just after the celebrations of the Resurrection of Christ this year, we flew to Berlin and were greatly blessed to meet many of the faithful missionaries on the team in that area of the world. In many ways, the trip was a check to verify that Jo Ann is indeed ready to return to "normal" missionary activity. She passed the test with flying (no...

"Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything  praiseworthy — meditate on these things" (Philippians 4:8).   Ten days ago, Jo Ann had surgery for which many of you prayed along with us. This morning we received the news from the doctor's office that our prayers have been answered with joyful news. No cancer was found in the biopsies! The surgery was done laparoscopically and she only needed a week before getting...

Care The name of our health insurance company through ABWE is United Health Care which is regulated by the Affordable Care Act which is often known as "Obamacare." Medicare can be a partial help and soon we should have a new care contender on the market "Trumpcare!" One might think that with all this wonderful care a person would not have a care in the world (except, of course, how to pay for it)! Thankfully, our faith is not in health systems for the outcomes we anticipate because ". . . a greater than . . ." Solomon, Jonah, the Temple, (or Health Care) is here. As believers, we all trust Jesus for our well-being...
