I am known by some as Papa, some as Dad, and some as Pastor. Due to popular demand I have now set up my blog. The “popular demand” aspect is this — so often we are going through our day and my wife will say to me “Papa, you need to start a blog and that should go on it.” So when your wife keeps saying that, it becomes “popular demand!” Once a pastor/teacher always a pastor/teacher it seems. I want an outlet where I can share words of encouragement and teaching that will lead to victorious lives for us and bring glory to God. My life’s calling and ministry comes from Acts 20:24: “But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.” Even though I no longer lead a church, my ministry and race are not over and I still want to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. Postscript since I first wrote this blog entry. I have had the Lord speak through two men of God telling me I was to start writing. These are confirmations since my wife began telling me this two years ago. So, in addition to this blog, I have begun to write a book using the transcripts of my sermons on the book of Ephesians. We will see how it goes. With love from Baja.
