Posting on the blog has been rather sporadic lately. But here's a short update on what's been going on. I think most of our readers know we're moving to Florida. With moving comes the craziness of packing...but thankfully that's all over. On Thursday through Saturday we loaded the truck amid freezing temperatures and snow flurries. The driver came and got the truck on last Monday. We had planned on leaving out this morning but we have snow and ice on the ground right now. Hopefully we'll be able to start our trip to Florida tomorrow.
Saturday is our unloading date down in Florida. Please pray for a safe trip down and a smooth rest of the move. I don't know when I'll get another chance to post. I'll try to keep everyone updated.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful time celebrating our Savior's birth this Christmas season. Merry Christmas!


Raising of the Dome

At the seminary there is a new building under construction. Last semester they had the rising of the dome. That was a really fun experience that I'm sure I"ll always remember! I decided to go ahead and post a few pictures here so ya'll could see them.

First there was prayer.
The dome on the ground.
Then everyone got to sign the dome.

The Dollar for a Drink Campaign

This campaign was started by a fellow Rebelutionary, Joshua Guthrie. What is Joshua's vision? Involve fellow christians to...

Give up one Drink
Give one Dollar
Help build on well in Sudan

Few people have the funds to build a well on their own for people without any source of clean drinking water. That is why Joshua is asking people to only donate as much as they can...for some that might be a dollar. So far the dollar for a drink campaign has raised 7,200.The challenge is to raise $8,000 (the amount needed to dig a well) BEFORE CHRISTMAS 2008!

Here is how Joshua defines Dollar for a Drink:
Dollar for a Drink is a non-profit organization that is raising money for fresh water wells in Sudan, Africa. We are working with Baptist Global Response, which is a humanitarian relief organization similar to World Vision and Samaritan's Purse. Dollar for a Drink is a "turn-key" operation. We raise the money for the wells, and BGR puts them in. 100%* of donations will be spent towards the building of the well(s).

Joshua has inspired me with his vision to give drinkable water to people in Sudan. It's not to late to help. To find out more about dollar for a drink, amazing facts about how much people need water, how to promote this organization or even how to donate visit www.dollarforadrink.org.
