I don't know who all actually reads this blog besides Jon and myself, but if any of you have been at MBBC or are familiar with its faculty, you will know of Ted Daub, aka Bwana Daub to us students. He and his wife came to the States a few years ago after serving The Lord as missionaries for 30 years in Kenya. While here, Bwana taught missions classes and helped to start the Missions Prayer Bands here at MBBC that have so greatly impacted my life and helped to give me a more informed perspective on missions. Mrs. Daub worked in the Deans Office. In January 2007, they began deputation to go back to Kenya. Yesterday, they were supposed to be moving back to Pennsylvania (I spoke with both Mr. and Mrs. Daub two days ago at Menard's as they came to get a couple of last minute items before finishing packing to move to their new house in PA and then beginning their next series of deputation meetings until September). They are hoping, based on current happenings, to be at full support and go to Kenya in October. However, Bwana had a heart attack yesterday. I'm afraid I don't know much more than that, unfortunately. I searched MBBC's website and was unable to find anything regarding this prayer request. If you know any more details, please let me know. I would like to be able to pray more accurately for them.

Please pray for this dear man of God and his wife that this incident would not hinder them from being able to continue their deputation and go back to Kenya. Even while stateside, their heart has always been with the people of Kenya, and they earnestly desire to go back to the work there to see souls saved and discipled for Jesus Christ.

Joshua Harris and biblical beauty

In response to a book written for children about plastic surgery (read the post, first, before you throw a Christian temper tantrum about it), Joshua Harris gives some biblical insight on God's definition of beauty.

Kevin Brownfield preached today at my church. Today's morning message (which I hope to have loaded onto the web within the week) was from Pilippians 3:4-11. He asked one very simple question and then used the life of Paul, as explained within this text, to answer how a person should biblically answer this question. The question was rather simple, yet profound. "Does Jesus know you?" Well, does He?
