We got news today that Pat's Father Alfie Moore went home to be with the Lord. Pat is Steve's wife (steves statements) and a Sister in Christ. I would ask you to pray for them at this difficult time; it is not easy but it is a blessing that he was saved. It's a blessing to know that it is not Goodbye but "til we meet again".
Matthew 5:4 Blessed [are] they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Proverbs 18:10 The name of the LORD [is] a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
Psalm 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD [is] the death of his saints.
1 Thessalonians 4:13,14 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
Here are some pictures taken when we were at Dublin zoo. Notice how many poeple were waiting to get into the zoo. We were near the back of the line. This was only some of the people; the crowd was much bigger.
Flamingos-I thought these were so pretty
What could this be?Hmmm.. Feeding time at the Zoo...
These guys were pretty funny;
we spent a good amount of time watching them playing around
We actually supplied these monkeys with their bananas;
they were supposed to be for OUR lunch but
my husband just couldn't resist throwing them in.
Not to mention, ignoring the sign that read " Dont feed the animals" but it was fun watching them.
Here is a picture of the Pastor of our home Church with his wife-to-be Sis. Monica. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to get Pastor Mark to sit still for a picture; worse than a kid. I actually took another picture of them yesterday which i will try to get uploaded soon.
They will be married on the 7th of December and we are all looking forward to the big day.
They make a lovely couple. Congratulations you two!

I found this on a website while searching the net. The site actually has a lot of hymns with the story telling you how the hymn came about.I found this very interesting so I've decided to post some of them on my blog now and again, starting with this one.
*** While I was attending the World’s Fair in Chicago [Illinois], Henry Varley, a lay preacher from London, said to Major Whittle: “I do not like the hymn ‘I need Thee every hour’ very well, because I need Him every moment of the day.
Soon after Major Whittle wrote this sweet hymn… [He] brought the hymn to me in manuscript a little later, saying that he would give me the copyright of both the words and music if I would print for him five hundred copies on fine paper, for distributing among his friends. His daughter May Whittle, who later became the wife of Will R. Moody, composed the music. I did as Mr. Whittle wished; and I sent the hymn to England, where it was copyrighted on the same day as at Washington.
In England the hymn became very popular. Falling into the hands of the well-known Rev. Andrew Murray, of South Africa, then visiting London, he adopted it as his favorite hymn. A year later Mr. Murray visited Northfield [Massachusetts], and while holding a meeting for men in the church he remarked, “If Sankey only knew a hymn which I found in London, and would sing it, he would find that it embraces my entire creed.” I was very anxious to know what hymn it was, and when he had recited it I said to him: “Doctor, that hymn was written within five hundred yards of where we are standing.” For years Dr. Murray had his wife sing this hymn in nearly all his meetings. It also became a great favorite in South Africa during the war.
Dying with Jesus, by death reckoned mine; Living with Jesus, a new life divine; Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine, Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.
(Chorus) Moment by moment I’m kept in His love; Moment by moment I’ve life from above; Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine; Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.
Never a trial that He is not there, Never a burden that He doth not bear, Never a sorrow that He doth not share, Moment by moment, I’m under His care.
Never a heartache, and never a groan, Never a teardrop and never a moan; Never a danger but there on the throne, Moment by moment He thinks of His own.
Never a weakness that He doth not feel, Never a sickness that He cannot heal; Moment by moment, in woe or in weal, Jesus my Savior, abides with me still.
I am a Missionary's wife.I repented of my sins and accepted Jesus Christ as my Personal Saviour in july 1999 and my life has changed for the better ever since. The Lord has blessed me in many ways, more than i can say.He has given my husband and I 4 beautiful children to look after in this world, soon to be 5. I am thankful for Christians that are willing to share the gospel with lost souls otherwise i wouldn't have known how to be saved and could have been in hell right now. I am still a hell deserving sinner but by God's grace i am saved and heaven bound.
I hope this blog will be a blessing to anyone who reads it.
