What is YOUR Ultimate Problem?  DON'T MISS OUT--see the drop-down menu showing  the link UNDER "Solving Our Ultimate Problem" above for more information, please!

On July 30th, I walked around the 1st loop of the campground, talked to about 20 people, gave 7 tracts to them.

On the 31st, I walked around the 2nd and 3rd loops of the campground, talked with about 30 people, and gave out 25 tracts to them.  Then we went to our oldest son's home, where we met with his family, people from his wife's family, and celebrated our oldest granddaughter's 7th birthday, coming up on Wednesday!  Lots of fun!

Today, August 1st, we drove to Brown County State Park near Nashville, IN, and checked it out for future possibilities.  Gave a tract to the campground registration clerk.  Then we went to Nashville, IN, which is a kind of small Gatlinburg (TN) or Balboa Island (SoCal, off of Newport Beach), and walked around the shops, etc.  I gave tracts to a parking lot clerk, to the two clerks at a restaurant, and one at the Visitors Center.

We are working on plans to visit lighthouses on the coasts of Michigan.  Thank you for your prayers!

If someone to whom you speak today dies tomorrow, will you be satisfied with the last thing that you said to them?  Share Jesus and the Gospel!  If someone to whom you speak today is a person whom you never see again, will you be satisfied with the last thing that you said to them?  Share Jesus and the Gospel, and encourage other believers to share Jesus and the Gospel, too!

Food for Thought and Prayer

We break our promises to one another. We break our promises to God. But God never breaks His promises to us.  —R. C. Sproul.  Richard Graham—This door swings both ways.  If we are faithful to Him, He is faithful to us.  If we reject Him or push Him away, He will let us experience the results of our choices.

Your will can't be free if it's a slave to sin.  —Augustine. Richard Graham: where does the Bible say that?  Does it?

Worry is a conversation you have with yourself about things you cannot change.  Prayer is a conversation you have with God about things He can change.  —unknown

Changed circumstances rarely change people’s lives.  Changed people inevitable change their circumstances.  —unknown

Not everyone learns just to get into a good college or get a job.  Maybe you are curious, or you want to create something, or you want to solve a problem.  Find reasons to learn that satisfy you, and you’ll be less likely to fall into the numbing routine that pervades our world.  —An East Alum

When God is your reason to live, you never have a reason to quit.  —unknown

A moral revolution:

That which was condemned is now celebrated. 

That which was celebrated is now condemned.

Those who will not celebrate are condemned as well.  —Jerad File

Five arguments for God:

Creation of the universe and life from chaos. 

Conscience excusing or blaming us as to right and wrong.  As Romans 3:23 says, “All have sinned, and fall short of honoring God.”

Testimonies from hundreds of real people as to Christ’s resurrection (including me!). 

Christ’s life the fulfillment of hundreds of prophecies in the Old Testament. 

The fact that atheism cannot prove the existence of God and the spiritual realm., as well as many other realities.  —Richard Graham

How to live as a Christian believer with no regrets:

Share Jesus and the Gospel with everyone you meet.  If they are not a believer, share Jesus and the Gospel. If they are a believer, share three simple ways of witnessing to the lost:

Simple one-minute testimony of how Jesus saved you from your sins, and gave you His righteousness. 

Interesting, low-cost Gospel tracts. You can obtain the ones we use from LivingWaters.com. 

Use the free Share Jesus Without Fear phone app. It has full instructions, including videos to show how.  God bless.  —Richard Graham

We are not seeing terrible things in our culture because we vote the wrong way.  We are seeing terrible things in our culture because men love darkness rather than light.  —Voddie Baucham

As C.S. Lewis once put it, people are “no mere mortals.” People are preparing for and growing into infinite splendors or everlasting horrors.

And therefore marriage is the workshop, a factory, a nuclear reactor where everlasting life is being created and honed and encouraged (or not).

We do not just make people through biological conception, we are helping people toward their eternal destinations all day long in everything we do: schooling, working, writing, singing, laughing, reading, eating, and everything in between. 

Immortals do no insignificant things. 

There is no extraneous dirty dish washed, no floor scrubbed, no encouraging word given, no comforting hug extended, no day of hard work offered that goes unnoticed, that gets lost in the cosmos — in Christ, none of it is in vain. It is all potent.

We are building a Kingdom that cannot be shaken. 

And that Kingdom is principally built out of people who will live forever.

I’m really thankful to let you all know that my new book is out: No Mere Mortals: Marriage for People Who Will Live Forever. I hope it will be a blessing to many.

The church is not a career path. It's a place you go to give your life away.  —Dave Harvey

But I count my life of no value to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of God’s grace.  —Acts 20:24 HCSB

Nothing so conclusively proves a man's ability to lead others as what he does from day to day to lead himself.  —Thomas J. Watson

The very essence of leadership is that you have to have a vision. It's got to be a vision you articulate clearly and forcefully on every occasion. You can't blow a weak trumpet.  —Theodore Hesburgh

A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.  —Max Lucado

It’s one thing to know a promise of Scripture; it’s something else to experience it.  —Charles F. Stanley

Some want to live within the sound of church or chapel bell; I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of Hell.  —C. T. Studd

You and your sins must separate, or you and your God cannot come together.  —C. H. Spurgeon

Rev. Sung Lee Seafarers Mission

A good friend of ours is Rev. Sung Lee, who has a nonprofit seafarers mission to ships in Houston Harbor, Houston, TX.  This is an excellent ministry to crew members of all kinds of ships that bring and take all kinds of goods to the USA and beyond.  These crew members seldom get off board their ships, and spend 6 to 18 months at sea, away from their families.  Rev. Lee takes the Gospel to them onboard their ships, leads them in worship, and shares the Gospel of Jesus Christ with them.  Please pray about supporting his ministry.  Here is contact info: www.facebook.com/lsjinjc and www.facebook.com/pacificseafarersmission.  Phone is 323-383-1715.  Thank you!
