SUNDAY MAY 25, 2014

THANKS   SOOOO   MUCH   FOR  ALL  THE   PHONE  CALLS…..ASKING  IF   I   WAS   OK…..BECAUSE     THE   NEWS   REPORTED    THE   FIRES   IN   RANCHO   CUCAMONGA ….. I   SO   APPRECIATE  YOUR  PRAYERS   AND   CONCERN …… THE   FIRES   WERE   IN   THE   HILLS ….. IN  THE  SAN  GABRIEL  MOUNTAINS   ABOUT   3   MILES   FROM   MY  HOUSE ……. SO   WE    WERE   TOLD   THAT   WE   WERE  IN   NO   DANGER …. THANK   GOD! ……. THOSE   SAN   GABRIEL   MOUNTAINS   ARE   SO   BEAUTIFUL   TO   GAZE   AT ….. I  HAVE  ALWAYS   LOVED   LOOKING  AT   MOUNTAINS ……. ESPECIALLY   AT   SUNSET   TIME.

PSALM  121:1  ~  I  WILL  LIFT  UP  MINE  EYES  UNTO  THE  HILLS,  FROM  WHENCE  COMETH  MY  HELP.

I    CAN    SO   EASILY   REMEMBER   WHEN   I   ARRIVED   IN   CALIFORNIA  ….. 1999 …….. FROM   FLORIDA  WHERE   I  HAD   BEEN   LIVING   FOR   NEARLY   7  YEARS ……. I   REALLY   WANTED   TO   MOVE   BACK   TO   SAN   JOSE …. BUT    THE   HOUSING   MARKET   WAS   JUST   OUT   OF   SIGHT …. FOR   RENTING   OR    BUYING …… SO   I  NEEDED   TO   FIND   A   PLACE   WHERE   I   COULD   AFFORD   TO   LIVE …… WITH   AN   AIRPORT   TO   EASILY   FLY   FROM ……. I   HEARD   ABOUT   A   NEWLY   OPENED   AIRPORT   IN   ONTARIO    CA ……. SO   THIS   WHERE   I   HAVE   BEEN  FOR   THESE   15   YEARS ….. I   HAVE   A   DARLING   LITTLE    2  BEDROOM   HOUSE    AND   I   LOVE   LIVING  HERE.   BEING   NESTLED   UP   AGAINST   THOSE    MAJESTIC   MOUNTAINS    MAKES   LIFE    HERE   QUITE   NICE.    THE  ELEVATION   OF   RANCHO   IS   1000  FT ………. SO     WHEN   I   ARRIVED   IN  ELKO   NEVADA   LAST   WEEK …….  I  WAS   HAVING   TROUBLE   BREATHING ….. AND  DISCOVERED   THAT   IT  IS  5100  FEET   HIGH …. WOW!    IT   IS   VERY   DIFFICULT   FOR   ME   TO  SING   WELL   AT   THAT   LEVEL ….. SO   I   FELT   I   NEEDED   TO   APOLOGIZE   TO  THE   AUDIENCE   FOR   MY   BAD   THROAT ……. BUT   THEN   I   REALIZED   THAT   THE   ANOINTING   IS   WHAT   BREAKS    THE   YOKE   OF   BONDAGES …. SO   I   JUST   GAVE   THE   TIME  OF  MINISTRY   TO   THE   HOLY   SPIRIT …….  AND     I  FEEL  …. JESUS   WAS   LIFTED   UP   AND  THAT   HEARTS  AND   LIVES   WERE   TOUCHED   AND   CHANGED.

WHAT  A  GREAT   TIME   I  EXPERIENCED   IN   THIS    SMALL   TOWN ….. WITH   MORE    CASINOS   THAN   NECESSARY ….. AS    WELL    AS    “LEGAL  BROTHELS”……. WOW! …… MY   HEART   WAS   HEAVY   AS   WE   PAST  ONE   AFTER   ANOTHER ….. I   PRAYED   FOR   THE   WOMEN   IN   THE  BROTHELS …… AND   ALSO   FOR   EVERYONE   SPENDING    THEIR   HARD   EARNED   MONEY    TRYING   TO  “WIN”   IN   THE   CASINOS …. SO   MUCH   DECEPTION …… SOME   MIGHT   THINK   THAT    THEY   ARE     LIVING   THE   “GOOD   LIFE”   OR   ARE   SEARCHING   FOR   IT ….. WHEN   WE   KNOW    THAT   ONLY   JESUS   HAS   THE   “GOOD   LIFE”…. I   SHALL    CONTINUE   TO   PRAY   FOR  THEM.   PLEASE   JOIN  ME.

JOHN 3:17  ~  GOD  DID  NOT  SEND  HIS  SON  INTO  THIS  WORLD  TO  CONDEMN  THE  WORLD,  BUT  THAT  THE  WORLD THROUGH  HIM  MIGHT  BE  SAVED.

THE   CHURCH   BUILDING    WHERE   I   MINISTERED   WAS    LOVELY …….. WITH   A    SWEET   GROUP   OF   FOLK   WHO   LOVE   THE   LORD …… THEY   REALLY   GOT   INTO   MY   MUSIC  AND   THAT   IS   ALWAYS  A   BLESSING  trans-smiley-tiny     THE    MAN   OF   GOD   AND   SEASONED   PASTOR   AND   WIFE    WERE  VERY   KIND   TO   ME ……. AND   MY,   HE   CERTAINLY   DOES    PREACH   THE   WORD   CLEARLY …… IT   WAS   A   REAL   BLESSING   TO   HEAR   HIM   SPEAK    ABOUT   THE  NEED   FOR   REVIVAL    AND   RESTORATION  …… THEY   HAD    A  PRECIOUS   YOUNG   LADY   VIDA ……. TAKE   ME   AROUND   ON  SATURDAY   TO   THE   MUSEUM   (VERY   INTERESTING)  ….AND   OF   COURSE   TO   K-MART……..THERE   IS   ALSO   A  WAL-MART     trans-smiley-tiny    …. I   LEARNED   THAT   THE   TOWN   OF   ELKO    HAS   ONE   OF   THE   LARGEST    GOLD   MINES   IN   THE    U.S.A. ……. SO   THERE   ARE …. I  WAS   TOLD    10-12000  WORKERS   FOR    THE   MINES   AT  ANY   GIVEN   TIME…..THEY   GO   DOWN   1600  FEET …… AND   BRING   THE   DIRT   UP   ……..  THE   PARTICLES   OF    GOLD   ARE     SOOOO    SMALL   IN   THE   DIRT…BUT    THE   GOLD   IS   THERE ….. AND    EVENTUALLY   THERE   IS    ENOUGH   TO   MAKE   A  GOLD   BAR   trans-smiley-tiny      I   AM   NOT   SURE   WHAT   THE   PROCESS   TOTALLY   IS     trans-smiley-tiny    ….. I   HOPE   I   AM   ASKED    TO   RETURN   TO   ELKO   FOR   MINISTRY.
