  1. I just wanted to share what an amazing service we had at church today. I serve at a little church in Taitung, Taiwan. Since last year, our church has done an outreach with the Indonesian workers that live in and around our city (caregivers and fishermen). We had a good Christmas service with many attending last year, and this year we made plans to do the same thing, to have our church members be servants to the Indonesians who attend the Christmas service. Word got around and today we had a record-smashing 98 people attend service today! Many of them are Muslim and they all listened well as th
  2. Tonight's sunset was spectacular! I took several photos, but since my phone camera doesn't have a panoramic setting, I took a video instead. This was taken from the roof of my house.
  3. I will not watch any videos with Phil Kidd in them, whether it's him preaching or someone praising or condemning him for whatever hobby horse he's on/language he's used this week. I've listened to him "preach" before and I couldn't finish the video. That's all I will say about that. The IFB is a movement of sorts, but not in the sense that there is an overseeing board or group that tell the other IFB churches what to say, preach, etc. Not in that sense. For the most part, the majority of IFB churches are indeed independent of other churches while still following the same core Biblical doc
  4. Reports are coming in that the world leaders gathered at the UN have walked out, and for the first time the UN is empty as everyone refuses to reenter the building. Reports suggest that the delegate from Canada dared to suggest that pineapple on pizza was not only acceptable, but indeed delicious. This highly offended the delegate from Italy, who in his grand speech waxing grand about the delicate flavors and ingredients that should be on pizza and never tainted by pineapple, declared Canadian bacon to be fake. The normally unflappable Canadian was brought to tears as he attempted to remain ca
  5. Thanks Jim. As OP of this thread, I would like for it to stay on topic of showcasing God's creations, not man-made creations.
  6. Smog is an unfortunate side effect of most large cities. I am beyond thankful that I live in a smaller sized city and for the most part the air is clean and I can see the stars at night. Once in awhile we have visitors from the larger cities on the other side of the island and one thing they always comment on, is that they can see the stars at night. Unfortunately I don't have a camera that can take night time or starry night pictures, so here's a photo of the beautiful scenery I get to see when traveling from one city to another, if I choose to drive. If you look closely, you can see th
  7. My church group went up into the mountains yesterday for a time of relaxation and fellowship. It was very enjoyable, although the road leading up into the mountain was a bit heart stopping! haha! The locals didn't want me to drive my car up past a certain point (their reason was funny - boars attack small cars! the real reason was my car was too low to the ground and would bottom out) so I had to pile into the pastors suv with his family the rest of the way up. Once on top of the mountain, the views were spectacular, my photos don't do it justice. view from the top mount
  8. Without locking down the country and allowing businesses and schools to remain open, healthy people allowed to freely go about their daily lives (only the sick or travelers arriving from abroad or those who came into contact with the infected are quarantined), this is the result as of today: 6 straight days without a new case, 31 days without a domestically transmitted case. Of the 440 total confirmed cases, 375 have recovered, 7 deaths, the rest are still in hospital. This from a country less than 100 miles from China and a population of over 23 million. https://focustaiwan.tw/soci
  9. Spring is here, flowers are blooming, and fruit is starting to grow on the trees. Genesis 8:22 -" While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease." Avocado flowers, fruit is starting to appear. The flowers from this tree are hard to get decent pictures of because the colors are so vibrant, my phone wouldn't focus properly for a really long time!
  10. The news has always been filled with doom and gloom, but due to the events of the past few months, the doom and gloom seems to have inundated every aspect of life. Recently I have read articles explaining that some people are so unable to cope with enforced isolation that they have taken their own lives. The articles warn that similar cases will increase before this current epidemic has been brought under control and life returns to normal. Unfortunately many churches/pastors have embraced this doom and gloom mentality, their only focus seems to be on what has been lost due to the church
  11. He could also print out his sermon notes in the form of a Bible study, and mail that to them as well, it doesn't need to be long, just a page would be okay.
  12. I'm curious as to who said they aren't "allowed" to hold services. As far as I can see, the NJ dept of health is only recommending the cancellations of gatherings of 250 people or more, not requiring the cancellation, churches aren't even on the list of things to avoid, although it's implied for larger churches. And if the church has live streaming, as larger churches commonly do, there's no need to "not be allowed" to hold services, people can watch from home. Seriously, in light of how much people are either panicking or outright denying there even is an epidemic, staying home seems to be t
  13. Here in Taiwan, when the virus first reared its head in China, the government of Taiwan was quick to recognize the threat. There was a bit of panic in the country at first, but the government was swift to bring it to a halt. They did so by enacting certain measures against panic buying and the spread of mis-information. They have daily public informational meetings to keep the citizens informed, certain things like masks and hand sanitizer are regulated (to prevent panic buying and price gouging), hospitals and clinics are not closed but have increased precautions, schools closed just until th
