Noah??? By; Mark

When my wife, who I love & adore, first came into agreement on this I expected some folks to look at us like we were Noah, back in the day. You know...building an arc out in the middle of the desert. But we haven't really encountered to much of that. The funniest response we have gotten to date has been "SHUT-UP!!!". Which totally cracked me up!
I noticed the "lack" of response by some people...but upon further conversation some days later...it turned out to be concern. So for all those who are concerned relax. God commanded us to have courage. He didn't ask. Love to all of ya!

Alright! Sounds like you are stepping out in Faith! I'm so proud, I am crying right now. Most of the choices I have made and followed through with, have been things that everyone has stood back with their arms folded, saying "how stupid is that?". Well, I am here to tell you, that it may have looked stupid for me to follow God so blindly, but that stupidity has brought me so close to the One I love. I don't care anymore what others think...Jesus simply said..."Follow Me"...and "Go and make disciples." These were not mere suggestions, they were and are commands. We have to answer to Him one day...not all those that think what we've done is wrong. We're accountable for what He's told us to do. Soooo, without getting to "preachy" on ya (sorry for that, I'm telling you, I can't help myself), you do what He has commanded of you, and I am in full support, beleiving that when He calls, He equips...and where He sends, He makes provision. Praise the Lord! I love you guys. I am praying for a great harvest of souls in your ministry cuz that's what it's all about, yo. <3 Jaime

Daughter of ours...it is not the mission that sets us apart...it's the mode of transportation that makes us look like Noah in some folks eyes. You should have see some of the looks we were getting just bringing the wagon home. The biggest smiles!

Joshua 1:9 - KJV - "Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."

And in the New Testament, Matthew 28:19-20 (The Great Commission):

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: ___and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.___
