Immigration and Emigration
- Hits: 615 615
A Bible Study! Wow!
There is a lot in the world today being spoken about Immigration, Migrants and Emigration. Immigration is when a person or a people from another country enter and live in another country which is not their own, usually and most frequently for the purpose of work and/or a better life.
When a person or people leave their own original country where they were born, they ‘emigrate’. The country receiving them calls them ‘immigrants’ or more often they are initially called ‘migrants’.
Forgetting and Thankfulness

One of the greatest sins of the Jews was that they forgot God and His wonders and miracles He had done for them in the land of Ham (Egypt). They forgot His miracles and what God was capable of. They forgot to tell their children and it passed eventually from their collective memories.
As they forgot, they automatically lost the awareness to be thankful to the Lord for all His mercies and how He had carried them through such tough days, all He had provided for them, the miracles; both big and small were consigned to an irrelevant history that they felt had no meaning for them today in their BC modern world.
Counterfeits and Fakes in China

Includes: You are a fake!
Necessity is the mother of invention. Perhaps it is necessity, which has allowed the Chinese fakers to always be there throughout its history. Necessity. Necessity for money, survival. Perhaps it is the same mental attitude as gambling. For whatever reasons, China is the land of the fake and the land of face. Two potentially dangerous, to you, four letter words.

By the word 'content' we mean the noun and not the verb. The noun 'content' with the meaning of ingredient or what's inside something, or what the content is.
Content is very important in life. This message may start out a little secular in nature, but bear with me and you will see that what we are saying has a very spiritual side as we move on.
Without Content everything is an empty hole. I once became aware of 'content' (what's inside) in a strange way when I lived in China.
A Giving Testimony

Giving is one of the greatest joys for a Christian or even for any human really! It truly is ‘more blessed to give than to receive.’
There are so many factors involved in giving to God: faith in the Word, joy, attitude of our hearts, stewardship, vision, diligence, love, obedience and quite a few more!
I had always been aware that I should give to God and that the tithe (10% of our income) was not the ceiling to reach in my giving but the floor from which to stand on, and from there to give even more.
A Dream in Barbados
- Hits: 980 980
I would like to tell the story of our travels in the Caribbean in 1980 because this story is about an amazing dream. Again, we were 'living by faith'. We shared the Gospel with the generally friendly people of Barbados. We were still young and quite innocent in our faith and expected God to do just about anything He had promised in His Holy Word! In our case this included supply, as that was an almost daily necessity!
