It is our privilege to serve the Lord here at HO HO KAM as He continues showing us the opportunities He has for us in ministering to the  needs of His people.


“And Samuel said, hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord?  Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to harken than the fat of rams.” 1 Samuel 15:22


It is written, “Obedience is better than sacrifice.”  I say it is also better than blessing.


Faith comes by using what you have.  Don’t wait for obstacles to be removed.  Go forth anyhow!  The most critical part of faith is “the last half hour.”

My Point of View The Mayonnaise Jar

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, When 24 hours in a day is not
enough; remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him.  When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar  and start to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They  agreed that it was. The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured it into  the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf  balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was. The  professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with an unanimous 'yes.' The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed. 'Now,' said the professor, as the laughter
subsided, 'I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things - family, children, health, friends, and favorite passions, things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.  The pebbles are the things that matter like your job, house, and car.  The sand is everything else -- The small stuff. 'If you put the sand into the jar first,' he continued, 'there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life.  If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, You will never have room for the things that are really important to you. So...

Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Go out to dinner with your wife or husband;There will always be time to clean the house and fix the dripping tap. "Take care of the golf balls first -- the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The
professor smiled..."I'm glad that you asked' that." It just goes to show you that no
matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee
with a friend..' Please share this with other "Golf Balls" And REMEMBER I take mine
with a little MILK!
Hufhand Report

Al Gore got so angry during a speech about global warming that he started cussing and
using foul language and almost woke up his audience.

President Obama said last week that the downgrading of our credit rating should give
America "a renewed sense of urgency." What's with this guy? We're not interested in
having a "renewed sense of urgency; we want a "renewed sense of value."

I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man
standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.

REFLECTING BACK

As we reflect on the events of this past week, our hearts go out to the ones who have lost loved ones:  Leona Wutzke, in the loss of her son, Glenn, and Gale and Elaine Holmes in the loss of their son.  Our hearts are saddened and reach out to them in prayer.
                                                     
We are perplexed sometimes, but are thankful that the Lord Jesus Christ is never perplexed.
In 2 Cor. 1:3-4 we read, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,  Who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.”
Romans 8:28, “We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purposes.”

Romans 8:38-39, “I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

The Lord Jesus Christ loves us more than we can even love ourselves.  You must (Prov. 3:5) “trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”

God Bless you,
Pastor Bill & Kathy

Resort Logo outline - Bob and Barb Ruesch  Bob&Barb

Christian Resort Ministries - RV Resort Ministry

Opportunities for our Chaplains to boldly share the eternal opportunity of Christ.
Medical challenges – one of our Chaplains is away from his home ministering to his father who is very ill. Please pray for guidance, strength and wisdom as he is away from his home, but doing the Lord’s work
Wisdom in traveling – Chaplains are always on the move. The cost of fuel is going to continue to be a factor for the faith based ministry along with the hazards of traveling. Continue to pray for journey mercies and divine appointments to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. Senior Chaplain Bob Ruesch

Chaplain University - Training for RV & Medical Chaplains

Students continue to enroll – but we can always teach to a few more! Pray that God will lay conviction upon the hearts of those He would like to see at Chaplain University and that the subject matter would be meaningful and valuable to the students as they go forth.
The teaching staff – staff continues to prepare to bring direction, education, opportunity and God’s word to the students who will.

Thoughts by Dr. Daniel Griffin - Director of Training and Counseling

DanGriffinPrayer and Effort - By Augustine
Reject those who say we need only our own free will and not Prayer to help us keep from sin. Even the Pharisee wasn’t blinded by such darkness. For although he mistakenly thought he only needed his own righteousness (and believed he was saturated with it), nevertheless, he thanked God that he wasn’t “like other men, unjust, extortions, adulterers, or even as the publican; for he fasted twice in the week, he gave tithes of all that he possessed.’… Even so, God didn’t approve him because he did not ask for additional righteousness, as though he was full of it already. He also arrogantly preferred himself to the tax gatherer who hungered and thirsted for righteousness. So then, what about those who acknowledge they don’t have righteousness, but believe they can find it within themselves instead of seeking their Creator, the source of all righteousness?

Yet it isn’t a question of prayers alone, as if we don’t need to include our willful efforts. For although God is “our helper,” we cannot be helped if e don’t make some effort f our own. God doesn’t work out our salvation in us as if we are dull stones or creatures without reason or will.

Augustine (354-430 ad) Augustine is considered by many to be the most important church father and is likely the most widely known due to his writing Confessions.

Augustine is my favorite character out of History, and I am looking forward to meeting him in Glory. (Dr. Dan)

Free Medical Clinics, Food/Clothing Banks

Hope Clinic in Eufaula, OK Please pray that the Lord would send the perfect personnel and volunteers to minister to those who need not only medical help but spiritual help as well.
Praise for Hope Clinic is that there are three chaplains serving at the clinic!
Tree of Life Clinic it is a challenge to support a medical clinic, whether in a metro, urban or rural, farm setting. Pray that God will bring people along side our dedicated staff to minister.
Eufaula Food Bank, with the recession and the depth of unemployment in the area the shelves are becoming empty. Any help would be appreciated. When at the grocery store consider purchasing a few extra food or staple items to supplement the empty shelves.

Free Medical Clinic of Branson - FMCO is growing each month, pray for the staff, the clients and the community to learn and know Jesus.

Pray for me as I minister not only with Life Borders but preach in local churches in the community. Sr. Chaplain Richard McCool
Santuary Outpost LOGO 

Sanctuary Outpost – Beyond the borders and stewardship

We are working on coordinating efforts for coordination with some church planters as they answer the call of God to move beyond the borders to bring the word of God to others in . Pray we can be a support and coordinator to make their opportunities effortless as they start to look at sharing the work and word of God.
Presenting the works of CRM international is paramount to bringing recognition and support to the mission, please continue to pray for appointment opportunities to share about the ministry.
Raymond & Marion Smith
