    You may not get much company on this one… πŸ™‚

  3. London says:

    hahaha…I’m perfectly ok with that. It only matters that I was FIRST! πŸ˜‰

    but..for the record, there’s no link between the deaths in Mexico and the Albuquerque killings today. I think that may be a bit confusing for some folks. But, since they won’t be showing up here anyway, guess it doesn’t matter… :mrgreen:

    I may have to research those titles at my library, and place a hold if they have any of them.

    Did anyone get a chance to check out the shows on Drugs INC on the NetGeo channel?

    I am burned out on the woes of the world that I can’t do a thing about. My summer reading list is to put a dent in my 60 Perry Mason books. My goal is to re read them all in a 2 yr period – then God will say “well done good and faithful servant.” πŸ˜‰

    MLD,

    I may borrow those this fall… πŸ™‚

  7. Michael says:

    I should note loudly that all of those books mentioned contain disturbing material and often very disturbing images and strong language.

    They are not for the faint hearted.

    The video at one point states that the govt of Juarez is finding that Jesus Christ seems to be a working solution for the problems of Juarez. Maybe, just maybe, all this chaos is for the glory of God to break the stoney hearts so that the nation will repent. It sometimes seems the Spirit prospers in chaotic times more than in air conditioned suburbs.

    bishopdave,

    There is incredible spiritual warfare happening there.

    I’m hoping that we can raise the awareness of this issue enough that we join the battle from this side of the border…

    Our church has been working in that area the last two years, attempting to help build and establish a camp for young kids (we also helped build a house for a family there). It is an area that could use a constant flow of missionaries, not just in bringing the Gospel, but in bringing physical relief. We have seen another church in town decide to cancel their trip there because of the fear of violence.

  11. Michael says:

    Shaun,

    Blessing on you…do you have a trip scheduled?

  12. Shaun Sells says:

    Not at this point – we work through two separate groups.

    One is called family missions (or something to that effect), and it is literally that. You bring your whole family. You sleep in Texas at night and minister during the day in Juarez – when a family from our church went they were working specifically with a women’s prison. The stories were horrific of what had happened to most of these ladies. The gal was a massage therapist, so she did back and neck massages will the gals opened up and shared the horror that is their life.

    The other is not really a specific organization, just a relative of a family from our church. I will get their information for you. I am sure we will be working with them every year for a while. The next time we have a trip planned I will get you details, and you can join us.

    Mere Churchianity by Michael Spencer is there. So is Doctrine by Mark Driscoll; Bonhoeffer by Eric Metaxas; a bunch of books by Eugene Peterson; Getting Fired for the Glory of God by Mike Yacconelli; Love is an Orientation by Andrew Marin; The Me I Want to Be by John Ortberg; and a host of others.

  14. Michael says:

    I might read the Bonhoeffer book as well…

  15. BrianD says:

    Michael, you might need the whole year to get through that particular book…

    I hear tea leaves are in this year…. πŸ˜€
