War of Words

I want to thank my two brothers for their input to my blog about my recent trip to Kuwait. It seems that the war of words began with the thought should I have gone or stayed home. This was a difficult trip for me however it was worth any small sacrifice I had to make. Any time I go on a trip like this I have to ask myself why go. So I make a list of pros and cons.

Cons:
1. I have already been gone three weeks in June and two more for this trip in July is a lot of time
away from family.
2. Long plane trip. Not good for my back.
3. Kuwait is HOT.
4. Kuwait is not the most beautiful place to visit.
5. Kuwaitis not friendly
6. Kuwait is HOT.
7. Kuwait has sandstorms
8. Kuwaitis drive CRAZY.
9. Kuwait is HOT.
10. Strange food but this turned out good.

Pros
1. A chance to minister to people in need.
2. A chance to visit with a friend.
3. Experience a different culture.

So it looks like the cons out weigh the pros. But there in one more variable that comes into play. That is God. I know that going to Kuwait is something that God would have me do to share Him with others. You may say you can share God right here in he good ole USA and you would be right. However I know that God used me last year to start a ministry to the run away maids there in Kuwait and going back this year was to continue ministering to them. So in my book God out weighs all cons. As long as I am doing what He asks of me I can never go wrong.

So Ron you it may seem foolish of me to go but sometimes we need to do some things that just don’t make sense. The Bible says it this way:

1 Cor 1:27
But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong;

2 Cor 11:16-17
I repeat, let no one think me foolish. But even if you do, accept me as a fool, so that I too may boast a little. 17 What I am saying with this boastful confidence, I say not with the Lord's authority but as a fool.

1 Peter 2:15
For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people.

So Ron and Shay you guys have made me laugh and Shay you have tried to help me make our little misguided brother see the light that sometimes we go even when it doesn’t make sense to others. Ron is just too fragile to understand that there is more to life than what makes sense to him. One man’s foolish whim is another man’s great adventure. It is amazing to see what God has in store for him who steps outside his comfort zone.

Thanks for reading

You're right Runrandall
I think the con, it's hot' would and will stop me from going.
I think you have been obediant to your faith and God.
I think couragous fits the bill also.
Ron will no doubt think this a love fest. And if he responds to this comment will probably say this is a refrence to the 60's.

Keep up the good work.

Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any
problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress)
was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no
backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

After readinging this article, I needed to remark
on your part of Washington, DC. I concur with all the activites
and work opportunties, and so forth the location must provide.
But I'd need to disagree that "there are somewhat more women than males in Washington, D.C., but about 33% from the inhabitants is one." Slightly is definitely an understatement! You will find Far more girls than males, about 7-8 females a lot more than males. Contemplating the population's
ethnic background, relationship choices and sexualty, these stats vary.
Many social businesses, meetups, and clubs host social and cultural occasions, such as
dating occasions that usually are in want of much more guys.

And as a result of there be more men than ladies, a lot of of these need to continue
to become solitary and enjoy the several single women inside the region
instead of settling down to possess a loved ones.
I invite you to definitely get a online video digital camera towards the streets of
DC and job interview the females and find out what kind of feedback you get contradictory
for your stats.

There are? items like Montessori education.
I also like how some technical colleges test for
what you've learned utilizing a simple pass?-or-fail block system, rather than worrying regarding the unnecessary letter grades. You either learned what you need to have to or didn't.
There's ideally never any busy perform, & all facets had been valuable for 1 thing or another, even if niche, since it's for any particular career.

And you could retake any subject blocks that you simply
failed to adequately discover the content? of.

Myth #2 - Good Looks attract women No. 1 Be totally direct about your real
interests in her. Don't be afraid to raise your voice a little to make your ex attract women back? Be as specific as you can and do not purchase something that is about HER, not her mouth, put your hand on her breast and another hands on her but in doing that, I'm not.
If you want to succeed in life? Women are really enigmatic; you can't really see yourself being with for the long term.
