Our daughter, Crissy, had her second son, Nicholas Eli, this morning.

The cold weather has returned. My teeth are doing better although I am very sore.

Dottie is working her garden boys preparing them for when we are gone.

There is a team of women from Pennsylvania.

Walt and Randi will leave for the states Saturday so they have a couple coming in Friday who will watch their dorm while they are gone.

Malachi 3:5 says that God is coming again to judge sinners for wrath and the saved for eternal life. Malachi 3:6 says, that God does not change. Men try to change the image of God but God is unchangeable. He cannot lie. He is coming and His Word must be respected without compromise.

Malachi 3:7 says that God’s people have turned away from Him for generations. You and I can see with each passing generation just how far mankind has slid from honoring God as our Creator. The world needs renewing and only a grand revival can bring that about. It is our duty to repent and pray that God would cause us all to go to our needs. Our discipleship team here at Casa has called for a period of fasting and prayer for the warfare we are in as well as for hearts of staff and children to be right before God.

Malachi 3:8-9 says that we rob God when we fail to serve Him with all of our heart. We rob Him we follow man’s ways and not His. We rob Him when we go through the motions of prayer and worship rather than with our entire heart, mind and soul.

Malachi 3:10-11 says that God issues us a challenge. A test! If you will bring your tithes into the storehouse I will pour out a blessing upon you that you cannot contain. I will bless you! God wants to protect us from that final judging of the damned.
