OCR 2008

We are closing out the OCR training session tomorrow afternoon. So far, it has been a good OCR. I have been really enjoying our evening sessions of prayer. For some reason, this year more of our OCR participants are hungry and have higher expectations for God to do some incredible things. Already some testimonies are […]

The Suitcase Lifestyle Sermon

        I will be sharing this one part sermon on longing for “home.” As many of you know, this summer has been filled with a lot of travel – pretty much I lived off a suitcase for weeks. When I was younger traveling was something that I loved to do. It fueled […]

Personal Retreat 2008

I am heading out for a couple of days for a personal retreat. There are a lot of things to pray through, especially in light of everything that is going on in our churches and the things that are to come this year. I have been sharing with people that when we fail to take […]

Motorcycle Day of Destiny

Yesterday, before I headed back to Ann Arbor, I had the opportunity to meet up with my friends, Steve Lee, Peter Kim, and Dave Lee for a quick lunch. It was good to catch up with Steve one last time before they headed back out to Kenya. Afterwards we went to Chicago Cycle to “just […]

An Incredible Conversion

    Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of a Hamas leader     I don’t know if you have heard about the conversion of Mosab Hassan Yousef from Islam to Christianity; but this is no ordinary conversion. Yousef is the son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, one of the most influential leaders of the militant Hamas […]

Covenant BBQ

It was great hanging out with some of the married couples in our church yesterday. Dr. Peter and Dr. Clara opened up their new home to all the Covenant groups in our church. Throughout this summer we have broken up into smaller group (3-4 couples) so that deeper relationships can be built. But yesterday was […]

Blueberry Picking

This morning the family and I went to a blueberry farm. We have always enjoyed picking fresh fruit and then using them to make different dishes. Since one of the kids’ favorite fruit is blueberries, they like it in their pancakes and muffins. As we were picking the blueberries there was a teaching moment with […]

I Need You Now

Smokie Norful is one of my favorite Gospel singers. There are Gospel singers and then there are “Gospel singers.” He doesn’t just sing a song, but many times Smokie uses the piano and his voice to prophetically communicate God’s promises and truth. This morning as I was praying and getting ready for our Sunday Celebration, […]

Getting Back to Work

It is always hard to step back into the rhythm of things after a long trip halfway across the world. But coming home to a family that has missed you and with various things pressing for your immediate attention causes you to get focused. Yesterday, I spent some time with the family. We all had […]

Bowling with Family

As I am getting ready to go to Indonesia, I am trying to clear out my schedule so that I can spend more time with the family. The kids really wanted to go bowling so we made a trip out to the bowling alley. Nothing beats $1 games on Tuesday afternoons. This was a historic […]

An Addition to the Jun Family

On Saturday early morning, Emanuel Jun was born. He came out healthy and the parents are doing well. Now, Andrew and Nickey are parents. Christina and I were talking how we remembered Nickey as a first year student at U of M, but now she is a mother. It is such a great joy to […]

Wise Living Series

        We have started our new 6 part series called, “Wise Living.” It is amazing that there are incredible examples in the Bible of people who have lived foolishly and people who have lived wisely in the ways of the Lord. Depending how a person chose, their destinies were cemented. We are […]

HMCC Work Day

It was great to see all the people who came out to help for the church work day. Even though people were concerned about the rain, I realized that in retrospect that it was good a thing. Especially, for the people who were working on the lawn. The rain helped the soil to soften a […]

Lifestyle Changes Sermon

        I think if there is something that we all want in our lives, it is “change.” But change in habits, attitudes, and our lifestyles do not come easily. This is why we usually start off well, but then we rarely find ourselves sticking to the commitments that we have made. Often, […]
