Haiti Needs Your Prayers...

Find out how to help Haiti

This morning I called my friend Will McGinnis from Audio Adrenaline to check on him and the orphange that they run in Jacmel, Haiti.  He said that he is thankful that everyone at the facility is OK, but the destructuion is overwhelmming.  Audio Adrenaline Mark Stuart and his family are there right now and Mark sent this email this morning.

Hi everyone.... Our internet is working finally. So I'm sending this to a few of you.... Everyone here is ok, but we are all very scared. The buildings held up great, but there are several houses right around us that have collapsed. Also, Hotel Cyvadier had major damage, while the brand new three story "peace of mind" hotel was demolished. Francine, one of our teenage nannies was in afternoon school and escaped while the building was collapsing around her because she was sitting by the door...however many of her classmates died yesterday. Many houses and and buildings have collapsed in Jacmel including the hospital. I know most of the news there is coming from PAP, but there is substantial loss of life here on the south coast. We need prayer for wisdom and strength. Its very chaotic here. We were able to buy diesel this morning and hopefully get more propane for cooking tomorrow. Last night was crazy...slept on the dirt in the center of the village...away from the buildings. Tonight we may venture back indoors, but that is yet to be decided. We go in and out to get necessities. The Haitian people are numb and sad to say very used to death, but this has created what seems to be a hypnotic state. I've never been in a situation were you feel SO helpless, fearful, and small. The tremors are coming again as i type this. Whoa!!!

Mark

Thanks so much for praying for Haiti and all those that God has there to minister to those who are hurting.  Please continue to pray!  I am also sharing a video from Mark and Will so that you have an idea of what God is doing through the Hands and Feet Project.  God Bles You, Scott!

New YOU in 52 Week 1 Tips!

If it's you're goal to take better care of the body that God gave you.  New YOU in 52 is a chance to learn something new every week that will help you stick to your resolutions and reach your goals.  Nutritionist Christine Avanti shared some great tips with us this Friday.  Here is what she says about a great place to start!

1) Clean out your pantry and fridge of any foods that have more then 10 grams of fat per serving. Also remove any foods that are high in preservatives i.e., package foods such as Ramen noodles, sugar loaded cereals, soda, juice, frozen pizza, ice creams etc.

2) Grocery shopping tips: a) Healthful carbohydrates: buy fresh or frozen fruits and veggies that are in season such as apples, oranges, grapes, squash, artichokes, sweet potatoes, bok choy and broccoli. b) Healthful protein sources that won't break the bank: whole chicken, frozen shrimp and low fat cottage cheese.

Help!!!

As a parent, it is really hard to resist your kids when they give you that "Ahhhh mommy or daddy" look! You know the one...The one that just melts your heart. Well my little girl Charin got me this weekend when we were at the pet store. We lost our favorite cat ever a few months back, and have been heart broken! So while we were there, we adopted a cat. She is beautiful and sweet!... BUT we have a dog, and now here's where I need your help!

 

How do you get them used to one another?  Is there a right way to do it?  Is there a special formula?

Hi Scott, I have enjoyed listening to you on KLOVE for a long time now. I am not exactly sure how many years, but I have been blessed many times by the words you have shared, the prayers you have prayed on air, and the songs you have played. That was, until today. I wasn't sure I had my radio on the right station when I heard you talking about 9/11. 9/11 affected all of us as a nation. It affected me even more as I serve. While I agree that9/11 should never be forgotten, I could not disagree with you more when you made all those "glowing" comments about political figures. I believe we ARE a Christian nation founded by God-fearing men. We are to pray for those in authority over us-not "worship" them. It made me ask myself if KLOVE is really a Christian or just a radio station that chooses to play Christian music. I challenge to think about what you really stand for. Dale Vig

I want to THANK OUR TROOPS WHO ARE FIGHTING to keep AMERICA safe. To ALL the NEW YORK FIRE FIGHTERS, POLICE, HOSPITALS and EVERYONE ELSE, THEY ARE ALL OUR HERO'S! They did what they knew was necessary to get the job done and save lives. None of these HERO'S had to do anything, they could have said, "Someone else will help." But they dove right in, not worrying about themselves because they saw the need of fellow AMERICAN'S who were in desperate need and hurt badly.

Our middle daughter was living with us temporarily between a getting a house for rent. I walked to the kitchen, on the way, her bedroom door was open and she had the TV on. I saw what might be previews to a movie. "What is that?" I asked, "Yea, that just happen in New York." As I watched one of the towers coming down, it all looked like it was happening in another country. When she left for school, I turned the TV on in the living room.

Alone I watched the horrific damage that had been done to AMERICA. I sat there in dismay with watery eyes praying as they began getting the death count. The real picture began to be received in my mind. I was stunned by it all, "Who did this and why, what did we ever do for anyone to kill innocent working people?" I thought, then the news began mentioning terrorists. A word I had heard many times in the past but now I realized who they were, what they were about and why! I remembered how we had recovered from all the previous wars AMERICA had been in. "We can recover from this too," I thought, we did but this was different, it was on AMERICAN soil that people were killed and a the damage had been done.

I will see the news today and when I see the towers videos again, I will cry. Cry for all the innocent children who lost their parents, parents who lost sons and daughters. The pain they still feel today and everyday but our AMERICA still stand strong as the statue of Liberty has done since it was first erected. We may not all get along (like a family) but you hurt anyone of us and you have a strong force to fight. A force of AMERICAN'S fighting to save each other from harm to any of our AMERICAN friends. AMERICA STILL STANDS STRONG AND PROUD! Even though we all feel pain today from the reminder of someone who tried hurting AMERICA.
