CHILDREN OF THE AMERICAS (COTA)

A FRIEND OF MINE IS THE HEAD OF THIS ORGANIZATION AND THEY ARE PUTTING BACK PACKS TOGETHER FOR CHILDREN IN MEXICO. I WATCHED THEM ASSEMBLE SOME OF THEN LAST YEAR IT WAS A REAL PRODUCTION. ALOT OF HARD WORK GOES INTO THIS PROJECT IF YOU CAN HELP THEM OUT THAT WOULD BE GREAT. ALL THE INFO IS BELOW

2008 Rainbow Drive Kicks Off for August School Supplies

Hi everyone,

It's already that time, and we're kicking off the annual school supplies drive for 2008. We really need school supplies and backpacks, and we're looking to assemble them the last week in August, so we've got about a month to get supplies for 500 backpacks. There really is no way to underestimate the importance of these school supplies to the children. We know, the teachers know it, and of course the kids know it. You should see them when they get their backpacks--it's Christmas in September, and I really believe they're just as excited.



Please help make a child's education a reality this year. Whether you're near us locally in southern CA or if you're anywhere in the country, you can still help. You can ship supplies or you can send cash that is designated for school supplies, and we'll guarantee that 100% goes to filling the backpacks. If you need help shipping supplies, let us know, and we'll work with you and a friendly shipper.

We've been gathering supplies already, but here's a list of the items and quantities we still need:

Backpacks--100
Wooden Pencils--3600
Ballpoint pens--1600
Filler paper (at least 150 packs)--150
Rulers--150
Calculators--240
Crayons (16 packs)--200
Erasers--350
Pencil Sharpeners--100
Scissors--120

That's a lot of stuff, but with your help, we can do it. You can call me to arrange shipping or pickup or bring supplies with you to the assembly party. (Date and time to be announced soon.) Make sure you let me know your counts of supplies so I can add them to our inventory and make sure we've met our goals for each item.

If you have any questions on the supplies or logistics, call me at 949-293-4259. And for more info on the backpack drive, click here.

Thanks for all your help once again--blessings!

Dave


P.S.

PRAYER REQUEST FROM FOURSQUARE INTERNATIONAL

A Foursquare worker in Afghanistan recently reported that there was an attack on the Afghanistan outreach center. Insurgents raided the center with bazookas, killing the Muslim night watchman, and capturing and brutally torturing three of the center's key leaders.

Upon release, two of those captured were hospitalized in Afghanistan and the third was air-lifted to Pakistan to receive hospitalization. The center was severely damaged in the attack--half of the library was burned and windows were broken. Miraculously, though, two computers were spared. The landlord for the property is assisting in the situation, and has promised to back the center until the situation is rectified.

The Foursquare worker will fly to Pakistan as soon as visas are made available to assist the leader who is hospitalized there.

Please pray for: the swift recovery of those hospitalized, the worker to obtain a visa quickly (currently there is a six month ban on entrance into Pakistan), the protection of those who are affiliated with the outreach center, and a quick rebuilding of the center.

Thank you for praying,

Jonathan Hall
V.P. of Global Operations and Director of Missions

MARY RAMBLING

I CAME HOME FROM CHURCH AND ALL OF A SUDDEN A WAVE OF DEPRESSION CAME OVER ME SO BAD THAT I CAN NOT SLEEP.

IT HAS BEEN A ROUGH WEEK OR SO. MY BLOOD SUGARS HAVE BEEN OUT OF CONTROL. THEY HAVE BEEN RANGING FROM 60 TO 300 ALL UP A DOWN . i HAVE TO GO IN FOR MORE TESTING I AM NOT ABLE TO GET IT UNDER CONTROL LAST WEEK WEDNESDAY IT BOTTOMED OUT SO BAD, BUT O F COURSE I HAD NOT EAT FOR OVER A DAY.DUE TO LACK OF MONEY FOR FOOD. BUT GOD DID SUPPLY THE NEED TO GET SOME FOOD. THEN SATURDAY MY TV JUST DIED, I DONT WATCH THAT MUCH TV BUT IT IS NICE TO HAVE AT NIGHT ,,,,BUT GOD MADE A WAY FOR SOME FRIENDS TO GIVE ME A TV. AND THEN OF COURSE MY COMPUTER CRASHED A FEW WEEKS AGO, AND GOD SUPPLIED THE NEED THERE TOO.

THE MESSAGE TONIGHT WAS ABOUT HOW WE ARE ALIVE IN CHRIST. AND HOW HE HAS RAISED UP TO HEAVENLY PLACES. HOW WE WERE DEAD IN OUR SINS BUT CHRIST MADE THE WAY TO BE RECONCILED BACK TO GOD.

KNOWING THAT I AM A CHILD OF GOD AND FRIEND OF GOD. AND I SEE HOW HE DID SUPPLY MY NEEDS ABOVE WHY AM I DEPRESSED. WHY AM I SITTING HERE WITH TEARS RUNNING DOWN MY FACE
FROM DEPRESION. YEAH MAYBE IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH MY BLOOD SUGARS BEING OFF.

MY MIND IS TELLING ME THERE IS NEXT WEEK WHAT WILL I DO NEXT WEEK HOW WILL I MAKE IT THROUGH. GOD HAS PROVED HIMSELF HOW COME I CAN NOT BELIEVE HE WILL GET ME THROUGH NEXT WEEK AS WELL. I KNOW I HAVE PEOPLE WHO LOVE ME AND CARE ABOUT YET THE DEVIL IS TRYING TO TELL ME AGAIN TONIGHT YOU ARE ALL ALONE. THAT IS NOT TRUE. I MY NOT HAVE BLOOD FAMILY....BUT I DO HAVE A CHRISTIAN FAMILY WHO CARES,, LIKE I SAID THE ENEMY IS COMING IN LIKE WILD FIRE TONIGHT SAYING DIFFERENT. I TRY TO TAKE THOSE THOUGHTS CAPTIVE AND I FEEL LIKE I AM BEATING MY HEAD AGAINST THE WALL.

I AM PRAYING AND ADVERTISING FOR MORE STUDENTS. ADS ARE NOT BEING ANSWERED. I DON'T WANT TO BE ONE WHO IS LITTLE FAITH I REALLY DON'T. I DON'T WANT TO APPEAR UNGRATEFUL FOR WHAT ALL GOD HAS DONE.

OH GOD GIVE ME THE FAITH TO BELIEVE. HELP ME TO TRUST. YOU HAVE PROVEN YOURSELF OVER AND OVER AGAIN. HELP ME TO KNOW YOU ARE MY PROVIDER. HEALER, DELIVERER,

OK LIKE I SAID BEFORE THIS IS JUST MY ONLINE JOURNAL FORGIVE ME FOR THINKING OUTLOUD SO TO SAY.

You know you've been spending too much time on the computer when...

...you find yourself trying to copy and paste your work onto the computer.

...you've started to "scroll" down your textbooks.

...you've forgotten how to spell those words that you usually use on MSN: u, omg, ppl, etc...

...you've forgotten how to use your phone

...you've caught yourself saying "lol" while talking to your friends.

...you go through "withdrawal" if you're away from the computer for more than a few hours.

...the internet has become your ONLY form of research.

...you know all the keyboard shortcuts for copy, cut, and paste: (Ctrl+c; x; v)

...at school, you miss your spellcheck program while you're doing a test.

...you have over 7 different email addresses.

...you leave it on while you're at school, just so you won't have to turn it on again later.

...you know how to avoid buying LimeWire Pro.

...you've named your computer.

...you spend more time on the computer than you do at school .

...you don't really go to malls anymore, you shop online.

...Tech support calls "YOU" for help.

...at school, your teacher constantly reminds you that the word " i " should be capitalized.

...someone says "What did you say?", you reply, "Scroll up. "

...you find yourself sneaking away to the computer in the middle of the night when your parents are asleep.

...you have an identity crisis when someone is using a screen name close to your own.

...you've forgotten the difference between, you're & your, to & too, etc.

...you would rather tell people that your bloodshot eyes are from partying too much than the truth ( you were online all night)

...you type messages to people while you're on the phone with them at the same time.

...you wake up in the morning and the first thing you do is get online before you have your shower.

...you wait 6 hours online for a certain "special " person to come online.

...your relationship online has gone farther than any real one you have had.

...you type faster than you think.

...you want to be buried with your computer when you die.

...you actually enjoy the fact that you are addicted.

...you can actually read & follow all the names of the cast that scrolls up your TV screen at the end of a movie.

...you dream in "text".

...you've memorized how your keyboard looks and it screws you up when you see a slightly different one.

...being called a Newbie is "MAJOR" insult.

...you double click your TV remote.

...you don't even watch TV; you watch all your shows on YouTube.

...you haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.

...your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses.

...you have an account on almost every website that allows you to have one.

...you have the same password for every single one of them.

...you fall asleep and wake up with a keyboard print on your forehead...
Post any more you think of!

BEHIND EVERY CLOUD IS THE SUN






Psalm 91

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD,

“He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.

A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you make the Most High your dwelling-- even the LORD, who is my refuge -- then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

“Because he loves me,“ says the LORD, ”I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation” (NIV).

THIS IS MY FAVORITE PSALM. THESE ARROWS OF DEPRESSION WILL NOT HARM ME. IT MAY BRING ME LOW FOR AWHILE BUT THEY WILL NOT BRING ME DOWN.
