On LLUSA's trip to the Adventist Intercollegiate Association (AIA) convention this last week, several of us had the opportunity to minister on our flights. Here is the breakdown:
Outgoing: Jason and Janelle meet Iola, a beautiful newly-wedded woman just off her honeymoon. Topics discussed: Sabbath, State of the Dead, Second Coming, 10 commandments, Hell, Heaven. Follow-up: Since she lives in Atlanta, my dad will be keeping in contact with her. Lovely, godly woman that is definitely searching for Truth.
Returning Flight: Jason and Janelle meet Dustin, a passionate young fashion designer relocating to the LA area. Topics discussed: Sabbath, Daniel 2,7,8 (including little horn characteristics), Health Message of the Bible, 10 commandments, Reading the Bible in 1 year Plan. Follow-up: He is an exciting gentlemen that wants to keep studying the Bible and Janelle and I are glad to have met him and become friends with him.
Returning Flight: Richard Barnes meets a non-denominational minister who is wanting to know more Bible truth. Topics discussed: Second Coming, Sabbath Follow-up: Richard is going to be contacting her and she is very interested to find out whether or not the "Left Behind" scenario is Biblical or not.
As you can see, the Lord has blessed!! We would have been glad to have met one person that would have wanted to study the WORD, but 3+ was beyond our expectations. Richard, Janelle, and I thank the ministries in Loma Linda, CA (ie: Advent HOPE, Restoration, MIP, etc) for helping us learn so we can help others learn the truths of God's Word. The Lord is good and we believe that He truly has reclaimed "the AIR" as part of His kingdom :)

2nd Stolen Bike in Less than One Year!!!
Even with the abudance of goodness that Loma Linda University upholds, sin can and does abound. Janelle and Jason realized that with full-force this morning when on starting the day, Jason's bike was missing. The abundance of evidence suggests that someone with either strong intent (or hands/teeth) did the dirty work.
It is so sad to see people forfeit salvation for something so trivial. Oh how I long for the place where bike locks will not be needed! This once again brings me to the realization that this world is not my home and I am not a citizen of this secular kingdom.
I pray that justice will be abound and I pray that this person has to come to grips with the consequences of their actions. I also pray that I do my best to make sure that I am always on the RIGHT side of God's justice in all that I do.
Officer Champin loads the bike that probably was the thief's original vehicle. I guess he/she wanted an upgrade.
Friends, you can't be too careful. I think Janelle and I will start placing are bikes in our house!
