10th Year Anniversary

   Tomorrow night we are going to gathering everyone together for the 10th year Reunion Service. It is going to be awesome reconnecting with everyone. We will spend some time in the Word and worshipping together – HMCC style! Then on Saturday, the formal banquet at the Marriott Hotel will be an added treat (thank […]

Temporary Soccer Coach?

I don’t know how it happened, but in the midst of the impromptu parent/coach meeting, I just found myself volunteering. Recently, due to the earlier sundown, Josiah’s soccer program changed the start of the soccer practices. But the problem is that his coach cannot come until 30-40 minutes later. So, there were two options given […]

Consistency Please!

Michael Venyah and his wife, Tamika have a ministry called, Soulwinners Ministry International. They have been on the University of Michigan campus for the last two days preaching on the Diag (the center of the campus). It has been really interesting to read some of the accounts in the Michigan Daily’s article and to see […]

The Greatest Game Ever Played

Christina and I spent our date night watching, “The Greatest Game Ever Played” on DVD. The movie is based on a true story of the 1913 U.S. Open, where Francis Ouimet, an amateur golf player played against the best player of that time. WARNING: If you don’t like people who spoil movies, please read no […]

What a Night!

God is truly amazing! Talk about impeccable timing… we arrived at the hotel at 5:05PM. Yup, you guessed it – our flight was delayed again. We were on the tarmac when the plane’s engine shut down. In one of those “ah-ha” moments, I was reminded that this new church plant will never “take off” without […]

The Time Has Come

I can’t believe the time has come for the church plant in Chicago. This past year flew by… especially as we were trying to lay down the foundations for this church plant . I keep thinking back to that October 29th, 2005 Northwestern vs. Michigan football game when the Holy Spirit deposited the vision and […]

It All Came Back

After the whole airport fiasco (4 hour delay), I finally arrived to the Friday gathering. I walked in when everything was finished and the people were fellowshipping together. People were getting ready to go ACCESS Afterhours (a time of food, fun, fellowship, friends… you get the picture). We ended up splitting into two groups and […]

Madness at the Airport

This is crazy! I should have landed in Chicago about 2 hours ago, but here I am sitting in my seat feeling frustrated. Thank God for technology – I am able to write about it in my blog as I wait in my seat. My original flight got delayed due to a storm. So I […]

Coffee Shop Politics

I was at a local coffee shop working on my messages and I could not help but to overhear a conversation between two employees. They were upset that within a block radius from their café 3 other coffee shops were going to open up. This was the gist of their dialogue:      Employee #1: “Can you […]

UM B-School Back to #1

I just found out that the University of Michigan’s Business school is ranked number one in the nation. The Wall Street Journal recently published their rankings. With this number one ranking, we are going to see more high-caliber people coming to the university in the next few years. This is very exciting. What would it […]

The Role of Television

Our hand-me down television that was over 10 years old finally broke down on us – the screen just went blank. It has been about a week now without a television. The more I think about it, the more I realize how television plays a significant role in a family’s life. The kids could not […]

One Week and Counting

As we rolled into the Hilton Garden Inn for our last preview service, I was reminded that church is not a building or a place, but it is made up of people – God’s people. This was the beauty of the early church. Due to the persecution, they were scattered all over the known world […]

Time of Reconnecting

This week I had breakfast in the morning with Christina – without the kids! At first it was a little weird (or abnormal) not having all the noise and making sure that everyone is eating. It brought back memories of our earlier years of courtship and marriage, when it was just the two of us. […]
