Back to the Bible!

Dear friends,

Patty and I were waiting to board a plane from London Heathrow to Harare, Zimbabwe several years ago. I saw a young man who was also waiting and reading his Bible.  I said, “You don’t really believe what you are reading do you?”  He said, “yes sir I do!” I said something like, “Why that book is so out of date and frankly it has no relevance today.”  He begged to differ and so I met Brenner!  He was going to Zimbabwe to meet a pastor who ran an orphanage with his wife.  It didn’t work out, but he started his own organization and has partnered with Hands of Hope for years.  What a blessing he has been to children from “hard places.”

No, the Bible isn’t outdated, but it rarely is read in Silicon Valley – let alone lived out!  Our speaker for our mission’s conference this weekend is Dr. Peter Hammond from South Africa.  He is the founder of “Frontline Fellowship!”  Here is their website –

Our theme is, “The Transforming Power of the Word of God.” Our nation and our world needs to get, “Back to the Bible.”  There is no freedom apart from the truth!  The powers of darkness have blinded the eyes of the unbelieving in order to keep them in bondage!

Our conference starts Friday night (9/29) with a free family BBQ at 6 pm.  Then if you get on and click on events you will be able to see the full schedule for the entire weekend.

Sunday night is an all church potluck with beverages and desserts provided.  If those of you whose last names are from A-N would bring a main dish and O-Z a salad – well I think we will all be satisfied!

Dr. Hammond will speak throughout the weekend so pray for him!  We hope that you will join us as I am confident that we will all be challenged in laying down our lives for Jesus’ sake so that the “Nations will be Glad!”

Until all hear,
