A Creative God

There are few places I have been where God's creativity is more evident than in Australia (though South Africa is certainly in the running - I will see the giraffes, zebras and baboons again this fall). Going to see some of the sites with the Samsill family, I have seen koala bears, kangaroos, wallabies, a duck billed platipus, little penguins (their actual name), sharks, sting rays, crocodiles, and other "odd" creations. I have pictures of all of these, and will show them to you if you want. Our God certainly is creative and loves variety. God certainly has created a diverse and beautiful world for us to behold. As I was thinking of how He made these unique and different animals, it reminded me of how much He loves us. Only a loving Father would go to such trouble to create a wonderful world like the one we live in.

What We Are About At SIBI International

I was asked an interesting question on Sunday morning. I was asked what my job really was at Sunset. I answered that I am a missionary, the Dean of the International Studies Division and an instructor in AIM and Advanced Missions. He asked me, "Okay but what does that mean? What does this SIBI International do?" I told him about the 57 schools in 37 countries and what the schools were like, but this isn't what he wanted. We talked about the conversions, the congregations planted and preachers trained, but this still wasn't what he had in mind. He wanted a mission statement of sorts, and I thought it was a reasonable request. I have never been comfortable with using human words to describe a spiritual work, so I will let the Holy Spirit put our mission statement forth through the writings of the Psalmist.
