Attempting to obey God and follow Jesus Christ our Lord

Archive for November 4, 2012


God forgive them for they do not understand what they are doing, and forgive us that we have allowed You to be removed from our public places and schools. Help up get back to you Lord, help us show young women the error they are committing. Help us all Lord and help us to forgive them. In Jesus name Lord, I give you praise and I give you thanks Lord.
My heart is filled with sadness at the caviler way these young women treat murder, and the way we as a society have given our approval.

‘I did not miscarry. I chose abortion’: 16 and Pregnant star Jamie McKay’s shock  confession on Twitter

Daily Mail: Teen mother Jamie McKay has revealed she recently had an abortion to avoid becoming a mother for a second  time. Jamie, 18, shared an ultrasound of the baby  on Thursday via Twitter with the distressing message ‘rest in peace little  angel. September 17, 2012.’

The teenager initially led her followers to  believe she had miscarried. But a short time later she set the record  straight revealing the loss of her baby was due to an abortion, not  miscarriage.

‘Thank you all for the love and support but I  want you to know I did not miscarry. I chose abortion. I chose it out of fear. I feel like I made a  mistake and I can’t take it back,’ she wrote.

‘I have had this in my heart and it has…

Psalm 96

Psalm 96

King James Version (KJV)

96 O sing unto the Lord a new song: sing unto the Lord, all the earth.

Sing unto the Lord, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day.

Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.

For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.

For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the Lord made the heavens.

Honour and majesty are before him: strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.

Give unto the Lord, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the Lord glory and strength.

Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts.

O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.

10 Say among the heathen that the Lord reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.

11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.

12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice

13 Before the Lord: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.

“Hairy King Village and “Bald Woman Village” by Pastor Kerry Mauldin

This is the last full day in the villages!  We have been blessed to stay in Ishkababavagudem the last 2 weeks.  It is very simple with bucket baths and intermitent electricity at best, but has been a joy!  16 years ago this was an empty field that I stood with a group of villagers around a mud hut that was caved in, taht they used to pray in.  Now is a church with 2 rooms behind that we stay in.  The village has a dirt road and a little kiosk shop to get eggs and milk.  The church is by far the biggest

building and nicest with the well water…

Today we went to Bommakel and visited Siadamma, 28, who has cerebral palsy and is challenged to walk.  She lives alone, but has a neat small house and nice yard.
Five years ago we gave her chickens (10) as a talent.  They were 750rs.  She raised chickens and gave the church a gift of 500rs from the income.  Now she has a buffalo worth 7000rs and several chickens that give 12 eggs which she sells.  What a joy and blessing to see the talents multiply and God bless them!!  She was truly thankful and I was so blessed to see her stand in the doorway of her clean small house and in a challenged way to most, call the chickens… and they responded!!
At Kesharajupalli Village, Vani, a Happy Home girl, and her husband pastor a church.  The Happy Home is the orphanage Jaya and Phoebe have that we have worked with these 17 years.  Vani was here till 2000.  Now she is married and we sat on the porch of their rented house where they have church service.  Nearby are the steel rods for pillars rising from the ground , for a church!  We gave for a roof and more…  What a blessing to hear Vani share the memories of the 5 yuears she was at Happy Home.  The goal these many years is preparation of these girls to serve the Lord!  Sometimes you wonder how it will happen, but to see them mature and in leadership…what a joy!!    It is a joy to give a church in “Hairy King” Village.
At Ramnagar Colony,  Pastor Samuel has 50 plus people and we met under the simple shed attached to his house.  They want a nice church-prayer shed.
The people were all idol worshippers till 3 years ago.  All were sharing how much better life is now that they serve only Christ!!  “We are abundantly blessed”!!
We shared salvation bracelets and one woman came up for an extra bracelet.
“Three years ago, I was having problems many years with my womb.  Pastors came and prayed and this Jesus healed me.” 55 year old Elishamma said.
Now I was my husband Malliah (local god name) to also know this Jesus. ”  She shared the meaning of bracelet back to us in rehearsal.  We asked if she wanted us to go to her home and share?  “No, he is in the fields.”
We were about to leave when a monsoon hit. We could not leave, but next thing, Malliah comes.  I sit on floor with him as his wife with her long pink saree sits beside with prayers flowing in her heart.
He listens quietly after first saying, “This eternal life, I leave to fate.  I don’t know what I will get.”
By the time we finished the heart to heart time, he was much wanting Christ!!  Elishamma held his hand and together prayed the prayer of salvation!
What blessed me was she had a plan and God saw the heart and brought Malliah to place to find Christ.  We encouraged him to take a new name at baptism.  ELIJAH, as his wife is ELISHA  momma.  Ha!!  How those rains came–out of cloud the size of a mans hand…. (not really).
Last village was Bodangirarthi Village–“Bald Woman Village”:.  We dedicated a great church given by Poteau First AG.
A woman gave land and since 2008 they had the foundation and 2′ high wall around.  We gave to finish columns and roof.
Only 30 attend, but will seat over 200.  We did teaching on reaching your village and being givers…  The people serveda great lunch and were so encouraged!!
It is a joy to dedicate thsi great church in “Bald Headed Woman Village”.
The literal meanings so help me keep a picture in my mind!!
We have baptised 68, given 6 wells and right at 40 churches this trip. We put right at 3000 salvation bracelets in the hand of people that so many said, “We never heard this story before and don’t know this Jesus, but will listen.”
   We finalize tomorrow and make sure we miss nothing!!
Thank you all so much for praying and standing with us!!
Kerry and Melody
