Amazing Space Video

Listen how eerie the sounds are all throughout the video...If you always wanted to hang on to the side of a Space Shuttle...This is as real as it gets. Plus you get the pleasure of falling all the way back to earth...It get's even creepier then.

Wide Is The Road

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." - Matthew 7:13-14


Usually, a wide open road seems to be greatly desired for those who enjoy getting away from everything and duct taping the throttle back. It is the most comfortable way to ride indeed.  It is easy to enjoy your self, enjoy the things that the world has to offer and definitely no problem to follow others that are heading down this broad road. But Jesus calls us to a different path in our walk with Him.


Now imagine that you are driving your bike down a very narrow road that is barely big enough for your bike to ride on. As you putt down this narrow path there are many obstacles along the way. Dogs jump at your tires. Deer run out and run along side of you making your heart race.  Every once in a while a deer will run behind you and you can hear their hoof click on the pavement. A long ways off you can see a small gateway that is only big enough for your bike to fit through. As you enter the narrow gate you get to experience what, according to Jesus, few get to find. Life. Life more abundantly. Jesus said that He came that we may have life, and have it more abundantly.


While it may not be the most 'popular' road to take, know that the road that Christ has called you to is the only way. In John 14:6, Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me."


Some people may mock you, make fun of you, hurt you, despise you, or try to bring you down but in the end you stay focused on the mission ahead of you. Keep on that narrow road. Don't look back or around you. Keep your eyes on the cross. Stay on the narrow path that leads to life. Be one of the few that find it and share it with others around you that are going down the broad road towards destruction.
Live for Him because He died for you.

I Love Circles, So Say We All

Have you ever wondered why you don't see any of your friends on G+? Wait, whats G+? Oh yeah, I mean Google Plus.

Google Plus has definitely become a higher traffic site for those who esteem themselves as tech/sci-fi enthusiasts. From developers, programmers, coders, techies, support, program compilers, you name it: ________________.

I hear people saying that G+ isn't catching on...for a lot of people that use G+, that is a good thing :)

There is nothing wrong with a social network for family pictures, celebrations, conversations with your Mother, Grandmother, their Grandmother or those people you befriended and didn't quite remember how you knew them. But for the moments when I am wanting to enjoy sharing computer thoughts, code, projects, tech talk...I break away like a ninja and run to my Circles at G+.

If you are interested in G+, and want to see it become more like Facebook one day, then I am sure you are right along with sharing Google's sentiments on that issue. I am sure that is what they would like to see as well.

But for the moment, it seems that a lot of people that don't want Farmville requests constantly prodding their brains, Embarrassing pictures posted on their walls, or endless pictures of brooms standing by themselves are making their way over to Google Plus in search for a newer kind of social media experience.  The techie in me finds solace in a social network that revolves in circles.  Are you in my Circles? Goto http://plus.google.com and find out :)

Witchcraft in Uganda

As I have been praying and searching for information about my mission trip to Uganda, Africa, I ran across these videos that give detail to horrific darkness.

Pray that a revival will spark across this country starting with thousands who will come to hear the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As these people surrender their lives to Jesus they will find a light that can overcome the darkness and bring them hope.  I pray that as these families live in fear of this witchcraft that they will seek the Lord with all their hearts, minds and souls.

We will be building a church and a school in hopes of continuing to impact this area of the world for years to come. Please pray for God to do a mighty work in the months to come!

If you want to support this trip you can contact me here.
