What a super treat it was to find and visit with Allison Ockenfels Flathers in Irivine, CA this morning! This wonderful young lady had been one of our family’s closest neighbors, geographically and emotionally, since she was born. We enjoyed watching her grow up and developing into a fantastic young adult. And now she is […]

The following is some of what our leaders said about it — “The period of Satan’s persecution is mentioned twice in Revelation 12 in terms of 1,260 days/years (Rev. 12:6) and “a time and times and half a time” (Rev. 12:14, NKJV). Both time periods […]

He never imagined traipsing around war-torn London, solving ciphers, practicing surveillance, and searching for a traitor to the Allied forces. He certainly never expected that a strong-willed American girl named Eleanor would play Watson to his Holmes (or […]
Since we last talked a lot has happened, so let’s recap! I loved many things about my job as a bartender but I was also like, I could accidentally carry on working round the clock for another year and a half and not actually confront myself with any real life decisions, and so my final […]
Staying in the neighborhood of Puna’auia has been so relaxing that I am really sad to leave. But it’s time to move on to the island of Moorea. We take the bus to the main city of Papeete; the bus doesn’t have a time table so you just show up at the bus stop and […]

The gentle rocking of the boat, plus after dinner cocktails usually leads to a good eight hours or so. That was certainly true last night. I dropped off sometime just after midnight and didn’t stir until about nine o’clock […]

Postage stamp sized dabs and tiny whiting were just not cutting it so he decided to see if any early rays were showing at a local mark, was his hunch about to pay off or was the quiet spell going […]
