Tomorrow morning our worship team is leaving for Catalyst
It is a conference for IVCF students from the Central Region (Missouri, Iowa, Kansas, and Nebraska).
(I was asked to play piano and trumpet for the week.) 
It is being held at Windermere Baptist Conference Center, which looks beautiful.
I pray these students come from this conference with more confidence of God’s love for them and God’s love for His world.

“Pick Me! Pick Me!” 05/02/2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — missmark @ 6:13 am

I don’t often listen to Christian talk radio… I’m usually singing along to a random song.
Todays song was  I Saw the Sign.

Then I switched to Bott Radio Network: 91.5FM here in the Lou.
The 12:00 talk was by Bob Coy on Focus on the Family.
His talk was called Caring for America’s Oprhans.
Did you know May is National Foster Care Month?
He begins his talk on the importance of being picked and the power of someone’s choosing. 
He mentions Christian Alliance for Orphans.
He also mentions Exodus 3:7:

The LORD said, “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering.

His talk is powerful and he calls Christians to live out James 1:27:

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
