Snow Day

We got dumped on last night. Snow, that is. We woke up this morning to about 12" of snow. I'd say that the kids had a great day playing, but that would only be a half truth. I think the adults had just as much (if not more) fun.

On another note, we found out on Friday that we were on ABC’s Nightline again last Thursday night, and it wasn’t a repeat of the previous program. They did a report on the rioting brought on by the cartoon depiction of Muhammed. After discussing the muslim response they compared it to how Christians respond to the many religious insults that permeate American society. They then showed a short clip of JHOP praying (something they shot back in November) and said, “But many Christians are fighting back...peacefully.” This was rather incredible since we had just spent most of the week praying specifically for the muslims and the growing concern over Iran. ABC news correspondents have become nothing less than a prophetic voice to the nation, and they don’t even know it. When they filmed us a couple months ago, we didn’t discuss anything about Islam with them. Yet they were moved to show us praying in their piece about the muslims now. Are you getting this? Without knowing it, they showed exactly what we had been doing all week. I think God is wanting to “out” us whether we want to be or not. There is power in prayer.
