Plead for mercy and get to work.

i'm not sure what to think or write - i don't wanna write something stupid or wrong.
but this is sure - keep up with the news and you are going to think disasters -

just in the last few days - disasters after disasters are happening around the world ...
- read about the earthquakes in China ~
(to put it in perspectives ... the capacity of Toyota Center in Houston (for Houston Rockets) can
hold up to 18,300 people - that's slightly more than the death toll ..... )

- read about the cyclone and its aftermath in Myanmar ~
(to put it in perspectives ... the population of Bryan-College Station Metro is about 120,000 - 160,000, that's the slightly more than the death toll so far in Myanmar .... )
see previous post and;_ylt=AhvoWsg83p9A6MuXfm6kn72s0NUE

- read about the tornadoes in Central United States ~,0,4637126.story?track=rss
and plead for God's mercy.
and get to work and spread His word.
and pray and ask God what you and i can help ...
then act.

no questions ask.

the start of another season ....

yep - spring semester is officially over - i think.

praise God for an awesome spring semester - if you know me - and my homegroup (aka christian community that i belong to ... ) and church - it has been an awesome semester that saw lots of people joined the group and grown spiritually ... and it's good as well for my grad studies - i've enjoyed my graduate studies more this year - and it has been awesome =)

.... now onto this summer ...

i will be situated in College Station,TX - whoop - once again ! continuing my work as an RA and gearing up for my thesis ... at times i was thinking about friends that are going on mission trips and how fortunate they are ... but ... i gotta constantly reminding myself that my mission field is here - and in academia - lots of prayers are needed !!

... here's a couple of verses that i've came across today ... i hope it makes an impact in my life !
Acts 4 : 12
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.

Acts 4:29
Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness.

i just bought a new book (it's actually a couple of years old ...) - "The End of Poverty by Jeff. Sachs) - an interesting book indeed -


if you haven't been noticing the news for a while ...
consider these headlines ...
- Humanitarian Crisis in Myanmar - please read, pray and act !

- Volcanoes eruption in South America
- Elections in America ... Obama is inching closer to be the Dem's candidate
- Elections in Zimbabwe ... (runoff elections)
- Tensions in Lebanon (it has ended i think as of a couples hrs ago .... )

... that's all for now ....
