What’s up with me

Post by revspipes » Wed Mar 31, 2021 12:40 pm

I lost my MMA studio do to CoVid. I am doing some private lessons from my home and started making pipes again

I am also currently writing a book. The book is short, true stories, of my wife and I’s adventures in ministry. If anyone would like to receive some of the stories as I write I would be happy to send them.

I am considering doing a series of 15-30 minute teachings through the gospel of Matthew. Again, just considering, but if you think this is a good idea and are interested just let me know.

And lastly I have been asked to come teach the Bible in Uganda. This is an honor, but also scary. Uganda is a corrupt place where violence is a daily reality, and being a white American there may be trouble. I have an intense decision to make. Add to that the very conservative nature of the church in Africa they may burn me at stake. ;) I will be fasting and praying about this one.

I do love you all, and my absence was more due to the crushing stress of trying to run a business during 360 degree fires, a married kids instructor sleeping with a parent as well as hitting on the female members of the gym, my admin quitting with no notice while on vacation and then Covid. The relief of stress that I have now, as well as not being in pain for the first time in four years has renewed my life.
