Gents,

A prayer request.....please pray for a young man named Jeff Boardman here in Albuquerque.  He was one of my students who graduated a year ago.  I've invited him to come to services.....he's agreed and expresses a genuine interest, but he's surely afraid to come on Sunday morning.  As my wife and I prepare to move back to West Virginia early this summer, my window of opportunity is slowly closing. Please pray for Jeff to come to God.

El Lobo -  Prayer request noted.   My wife and I lived in Albuquerque for several years in mid to late '70s. Our "spiritual boot camp" was there, a dynamic church of mostly young people called 'The Answer' up on 7701 Zuni NE I believe. The last I heard Terry and Angel Matthews were pastoring it. Are you familiar with it at all?   Blessings,   Sunday Creek

Creek,

My wife and I came to the Albuquerque area a couple of years ago to help my brother start a new congregation on the north west side of town.  The CrossPointe Christian Church is renting the Movies West theater at Paseo Del Norte and Coors for services.  I live on the far north west edge of town right on the desert, and am really not familiar  with the east side.  My brother has about 165 on a Sunday morning and has people who have been trained into the jobs my wife and I were doing, so it's time to go home.  It's been a good time and we'll miss the good people we've met here.

El Lobo,

I'll keep it in prayer.... time is precious, especially when the future of eternity hangs in the balance!

God Bless,

Marshall

El Lobo,

I don't know if this little story would help the young gentleman or not:

A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday. "I've gone for 30 years now," he wrote, "and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all."
 
This started a real controversy in the "Letters to the Editor" column, much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:
 
I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this: They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work.
 
If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I  would be spiritually dead today!"

Hey Guys,

I don't know how the seeds I've planted will do, but as a goodbye gift, I gave a bible to Jeff.  His email today says he's been reading.
