Sacrifice a date with the wife, or a golf game or what ever it is we do just don’t stop the POWER OF THE ALMIGHTY PUMP.

MY SILLY POEM

I HAVE A GAS PROBLEM: BY JOHN GROSS

PRIORITY, PRIORITY, WHO MADE THE RULE

$4 A GALLON, DON’T CALL ME A FOOL

WE PAY, YES, AND SO MUCH MORE

THE GOAL, RICH GET RICHER,  THE POOR MORE POOR

WE CAN’T STOP THE MONSTER AT THE PUMP

HE CALLS, I ANSWER, WE NEED FOREST GUMP

RUN FOREST RUN, RUN FAR AND RUN FAST

CLOSE YOUR EYES, AND DREAM OF A PRICE FROM THE PAST

WHAT IF WE STOP AND SAY NO, AND ALL STAY HOME

SADDLE UP THE HORSES AND RIDE WHERE THE BUFFALO ROAM

PRIORITY PRIORITY WE NEED TO ADJUST

GOD FIRST, FAMILY SECOND IT’S FREEDOM OR BUST

Alma Jones hits the mission field in Her 70’s whats your excuse !!! I had just come back from my 2nd trip to Uganda and was sharing about the needs of the orphaned children. I noticed in the back of the church Alma Jones was emotionally moved. As soon as the service was over I checked with Alma to see what was going on. She explained that when She was 18 years old She felt the Lord calling Her to the same east African region that I had been to. In those days a single woman would not have found Her way through Bible college and then sent alone into such need. Life handed Her some curve balls and here She was at 72 thinking of what could have been. I reminded Her that God’s callings are sure. If God called Her then She is called Now.

She took that to be the word of the Lord and a short time later She was In Uganda. She went on Her first stay with Dave and Ruth Christian who spent about 1 year training christian leaders in Uganda. When Dave and Ruth returned home She stayed and has been there for around 4 years.

On a past trip I got to stay with Alma and see up close what the Lord is doing with Her. She has been teaching leaders how to study the Bible. While there we spent a lot of time with a young man in His teens who was actually pastoring a church due to the fact that the residing pastor had left in a hurry with big issues. No one was qualified to step into that position so this young man was chosen due to that fact that Alma had been mentoring Him. Here She is after Her ride broke down in the field and had to drive back in the back of a truck.
