It looks like this "But how come Ada?"
Then you put the dirt in like this
Then you put water in and let Charlotte get her hands wet
Then you gently place the plant in its new home
Then you pack it down around it so it feel safe and secure in its new home
Then you even out the dirt around it all with a smile cause the plant likes it
Then you pose with your new Strawberry Plant cause that's what you do in Los Banos
This was a special treat that Linda had planned with Nevaeh and we will care for her plant, send her pictures of it as it grows and Bapa will eat the strawberries that it grows and call Nevaeh and tell her how good they are

It looks like snow hit the trees and the fragrance was out of this world
Then on the way home the wild flowers were completely open

They followed us back to Los Banos to do worship for us what a blast we had

What the heck is this? I don't know I just saw the sign and I thought to myself "what does it mean?" Well if you can figure it out please let me know would you?
Ha ha I'm just razzing you. It means hey everything is going along just fine for you if you keep your eyes on the road in front of you and not in the rear view mirror. God is moving us in some serious direction here in los Banos and yet we have no idea what He is doing but He is doing! We had a wonderful time of Fellowship tonite with approx half of the folks gone and yet some GUY (what else) saw the lil add in the paper here and showed up ha ha. It is amazing to see what will happen as we fix our eyes on Him.
Missing you all
Where the heck is my Mother-in-Law?
AL & Linda

I lumbered over to it wearing my sweats and slippers and proceeded to open it up when to my shock and dismay were two gentlemen holding brief cases! When I inquired "what can I help you guys with" they said "Do you desire to have peace in this world." Yup you guessed it complete with the little brochure with the yellow and orange color schemes on it, with a little girl petting a black bear of all things. I"ll spare you the blow by blow conversation but one thing that stuck out to me was how the Holy Spirit had brought to remembrance the scriptures that were needed to share with them. Little did I know Linda was sitting just 10' from me behind the door praying for me ha ha. We had a great conversation about the Love of God and Jesus and how Jesus died for them and wanted to spend eternity with them, and of course Eph 2:8-9. But hold on! They don't believe their all going to be allowed to heaven but 144,000 and the remainder will kick it here in the "New Earth." I stopped him just briefly and said "WHAT" ha ha "Dude don't you want to go to heaven and hang out with the Lord?"
It saddened me that these guys were so zealous with their faith however it lacked one thing THE LOVE OF JESUS! I was very kind to them, shared the Gospel with them, exhorted them on their works going door to door and even told them that the Lord loved them even if they didn't do this which they refused to believe. My greatest hope is that they will follow up and come back next week like they said. My plea to you is pray for Eric & Sam for salvation who knows there may be a Damascus road story on Deanza Way soon and I believe that.
We shared about 45 mins @ the door and had a great time but my breakfast got cold haha. I was blessed by Linda just sitting there praying for me only to find out she was praying that I wouldn't go off on them ha ah! Hey I look at it this way If I don't go door to door the least I can do is share with them when God brings them to my door! Dont be lazy!
Keep Eric @ Sam in Prayer
IN His Grip

Linda almost lost her mind because earlier on the trip she kept asking "what are we going to do?" I told her we are going to keep looking and keep asking God and Walla! Now we are praying for a screen to go with it ha ha. We wanted to share this with you so you can see that your prayers do matter to us. I will be leaving today to a Men's Retreat that that the Lord provided through a brother from Visalia. It is a Northern Ca. Men's Retreat that some of the guys I met from here and Gilroy will be at. God even provides when you don't ask. He knows our needs Amen? I am somewhat reluctant to leave even for a day or two because you never know what Linda may do to this back yard in that time. Garden, chickens. horse's i am afraid to ask.
Stay tuned to the next blog where I will give a garden update I see her out there planting tomatoes now geeeez!

After much, much prayer we feel its time. Our plan is to have:
* Sunday Morning Service
* Sunday Night prayer
* Thursday Night Study
I will also start a Monday Night inductive refresher for the guys who desire to learn more about studying the Word. What a blessing it would be to get these guys raised up soon to reach some of our surrounding Cities. We are also praying about a Spanish study as well this year Lord willing and Pancho steps it up. Ha ha can you believe it I am working with a guy named "Pancho Villa." Only in America & Los Banos can you do that.
Linda is very excited about the work except for the fact that I am always tying up the computer but I told her not to worry the Lord WILL send us a MAC I am sure of it. She has been very busy with her garden and is really bending (and I mean bending) my arm for some chickens. Whats next a farm? I want to thank you all for letting me ramble tonite just wanted to update you.
