Yesterday night it snowed enough where the fields were blanketed with the good white stuff. Even though people complain about how cold it gets in the Midwest and particularly in Michigan, there is something about the four seasons that I love. Although I love the warmer weather in California and down South during the winter […]
Tonight I am staying at home watching the kids. They are already washed up and ready for bed. Christina and her mentoring group are going out to have dinner together. Originally, I was going to meet with the group of men that I am discipling but due to a miscommunication (or lack of), our group […]
Whenever I start hearing Christmas music in stores and on the radio station, it reminds me that Christmas is near. Even though so much of what is out there is commercialized, when I hear some of the nostalgic songs it brings a warm feeling inside of me. Here in Ann Arbor, WNIC, FM 100.3 plays […]
Yesterday, we had my younger brother, Marc and Christina’s younger brother Alex, along with is wife Ginny and son, Tyler come to Ann Arbor to celebration Thanksgiving. It is great that even though we could not go home spend time with family that some of the family members came to Ann Arbor. We all ended […]

Christina and I went to Karissa’s Thanksgiving meal that they have every year at their school. We are pros at this now because we went to Josiah’s and Elliot’s meal for the last 6 years. It is great to see the kids helping out with the actual meal. Incredibly, the food is always great. I […]
My flight back to Ann Arbor got cancelled. It is a bit frustrating because tonight was my date night with Christina. I am going to catch the later flight which will get me back home later in the evening. Oh the joys of interruptions in our lives. Somehow God always has a plan for everything […]
This coming Sunday due to my travel to HMCC of Chicago, we are going to do our first video sermon in Ann Arbor. I am praying that we will expect the similar results as in Chicago, if not greater here in the “mother church.” When we first showed the video sermon in Chicago, Pastor Jimmy […]
A special night out with the love of my life sponsored by a HMCC small group for Clergy Appreciation. Christina and I are so thankful for this gift. Oh the joy and passion of opera.
Do I need to say any more? I am so blessed by the people in our church. They are always trying to find ways to bless our family. It is a joy serving and ministering to them, especially when I can get free tickets to the BIG game 🙂 The boys are […]
For some reason, whenever something is done with excellence it inspires me. Maybe it is the perfectionistic side of me. But all I know is that when people give their 100% and they do things well, it encourages me. The flip side of this is when people do things half-heartedly or doing things to just […]
This picture was photographed on November 7th, with a high-definition imaging (HDTV) from the Japanese spacecraft called, “Kaguya.” The spacecraft was orbiting about 62 miles above the moon and captured the Earth-rise. Something about this picture mesmerized me. For some reason, you see the beauty of God’s creation. Out of all […]
There was an interesting article on the Michigan Daily yesterday. Since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, we have seen a drop in international students coming to the States to study. But a recent study has shown that the number has increased this year. This is an awesome thing in light of missions and the greater vision […]
The family and I went to Josiah’s first basketball game (it was a home game). I realized that since it is a young team (5th and 6th graders) they are still developing not only in their skills but even in their physique. But it was fun watching them. In fact, it brought back a lot […]
