    I don't think you can really understand what this means until you've been there, Andius. No offense intended. It's quite debilitating.

    Due to TWeb not working like it used to, I don't always notice posts I haven't read. Sorry I didn't get this in here earlier.

    Thanks.
    This has been on my mind.

    Thanks for caring.

    Still stuck in the mud.

    I have really come to the conclusion that I need to find a church home. I'm working up a post on that which I hope to post soon. I just wish I didn't live in a pagan h*ll. I have really come to conclusion, I don't have to go to the mission field, the mission field has come to me.

    My time to be on TWeb is unpredictable. It may take a few days for me to see your post and respond.

    I believe that's exactly what you need, TM... you need fellowship and encouragement. I wish my Church were in your area, or you were in my area. I would love for you to meet my people and see how loving and encouraging they are.

    God really can use you right where you are. Sometimes in ways you might not even know about.

    That has been my conclusion too, and I think we may have found one in a rather interesting way.

    It's not a divine revelation thing, or anything spectacular like that. Just perseverence and willingness to not expect perfection. I posted in the mod area (and you'd know if you came back on staff )

Hopefully, we can finally settle into a church home. It's been years since I've had this much hope.

    This past weekend, we had 3 of 5 of us sick, so we didn't go for fear of infecting the church.

    This is encouraging. I hope this works out for you, OR, God has something even better!
