AACK!!! I'M LOSING READERS!!

Recently as I was carrying out my duties as an usher (I "ush" on Sunday mornings), I passed the plate to a gentleman in our church. As he took the plate from me and passed it on down the isle he leaned over and told me, "You need to update that blog!" Thanks to him, HERE I AM! I'm back and fundamental-er than ever-especially now that I'm using Windows VISTA!!! Yes, I'm one of the few elites (or idiots) that decided to be an early adopter of Microsoft's latest technology (did someone say Guinea pig?). What's funny is when I installed it, there were already 42 updates I had to download. Wow.

Anyway, back to spiritual matters. Last week we went street preaching and I had the opportunity to preach to a number of people at the downtown square. Nobody fell to their knees asking "sirs, what must I do to be saved?" but I'm sure that's what they were thinking as they shouted their obscenities. I had the opportunity to meet a former gang member who is now homeless, but says he is going to be a preacher. This guy was great! He said he's a rapper/DJ and recently got kicked out of his AA meeting for preaching the gospel. He told me most of the shelters won't take him because he beat people up there for one reason or another. I'm not sure if I would want to be a deacon in his church. We did have three people that accepted Christ as their Saviour through one-on-one soul-winning that night, and one of them came to church on Sunday. Praise the Lord! I'm going to see if I can find more homeless/pastor/rapper/dj/recovering addict/brawlers next time I'm out and maybe we can start a gang ministry (I'll ask Brother Jones to be in charge of that). Until next time...

Glad you're back....I wondered what happened to you.
A homeless/pastor/rapper/dj/
recovering addict/brawler --- sounds liberal :) JK You should have gotten his name...you never know whom the Lord will choose to use! You may hear about that guy later on in life....hopefully it will be for the right reasons!

I never knew that people did "street preaching" but I guess if it's working than keep up the good work.

Glad you're back. Praise the Lord for the souls that were saved.

Also, I was wondering how you upload videos to your blog? I have some saved on my computer and I was wanting to put them on my site. You can e-mail me at the address on my blog listed under my profile. Any suggestions would be helpful.

The Good Reporters,

I couldn't find your email address, but I left a comment on your blog. I have a Google account and they let you upload to Google video for free. I then can link to my videos or embed them.
