I just dropped the "LA Times" a note, asking them why they won't release the Obama/Khalidi tape. I found their address, email@example.com, on Fox's website. Maybe you would like to write to them also.

Missy's aunt passed this along, and I thought it was pretty good.
'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable. We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and Set us free. Amen!'

Man, why couldn't I have figured this out on my own? Maybe Obama is friends with John Avery Whitaker, and uses the imagination station! And oh yes, I just read that Obama now has paid adds in video games such as Need for Speed, where you are racing along and see and Obama billboard.

We're home, and I can tell you that there is nothing like home sweet home. Although our tour went well, it is good to be back. I kept track (or actually our GPS did) of how many hours and miles we spent on the road, and we traveled over 3,000 miles in over 50 hours driving time in three weeks to be in 15 services. Thank God for traveling protection!
Our last service, held at the Beauty of Holiness Church in Jackson, OH, was quite interesting. I mis-calculated our driving time there, and we ended up arriving 30 min. after the service started. The congregation was very understanding, and we had a good service in spite of the fact. It wasn't until after the service that I remembered my quartet service at this same church four or five years ago. In route to that service, our van had a flat, and our group ended up being way late for that service too! Coincidence?
That night we had a very nice stay with the Craces. Br. Crace is 62 years old, his heart is 55, and one of his kidneys is 41 (I think I got the numbers right). It is a miracle that he is alive today, but he has been going for over 20 years on a transplanted heart. He does beautiful woodworking, as you can see by this hutch and corner cabinet.
In closing, Devin hangs out in TN.

On Thursday of last week we had the privilege of speaking in a chapel service at Union Bible College. That was the first time for Missy and me to spend time on the campus (I had driven by it when I traveled with a quartet from Penn View). I'm still partial to Penn View, but it was exciting to see how God is working at this sister Bible college.
I went hunting this morning for the first time this season. Actually, Scott went hunting and I took a video camera. Since I do not have an OH hunting license, we were hoping to make millions by my being able to capture Scott shooting a monster buck on video. Unfortunately we were skunked (for you non-hunters, that means that we didn't see any deer, not that we were sprayed by a skunk). It was still fun though, and I know that the deer back in PA are already getting scared over the fact that I will be back in town next weekend.
Well, enough of my rambling. Here are a few pictures in closing. We would appreciate your prayers as we finish the last week of this tour.
