BBQ and CS

BBQ went well. There was tons of food. Michelle and Ryan made this cool fruit salad and used the watermelon shell as a bowl! it was so cool, till Wade broke it. Ahhh well. The main food was hambergers and hotdogs, and some kaluhua (dunno if that’s spelled right) bbq pork. The bbq kaluhua pork was a little strong, hah, didn’t burn out well. I also helped a guy named Daniel tune his guitar, cuz he didn’t know how to, hehe. It was just a fun time of hanging out and gearing up for next week’s large group.

CS (counter-strike) 1.3 came out along with the Half-Life patch of 1108. The new HL Patch enabled a radio chat thing, which surprisingly works really, really well. It sounds crisp and clear over the internet with not lag (course I am on a DSL connection, so that could explain somethings). Looks good so far though. =)

Charlie Hall @ VoP, and other weekend type things

Well some big news is that I got to see Charlie Hall again at an event called “Heal Our Land”. What a timely event named that. The pastor who organized the whole thing, actually started with that theme name 9 months ago, but only God knew of the incidents that would happen in America, just 4 days prior to the concert of worship.
Charlie did an excellent job as usual, and Lisa came along with me to see. He did some newer stuff (King of Glory, Psalm 126, etc), and also did some other interesting songs like Let My Words Be Few (penned by Redman) and God’s Romance (by Martin Smith of Deliirous). Very interesting that he did God’s Romance, because I haven’t heard him do that one at all before, hah. I knew that I knew the song when we were singing it, but I couldn’t remember where it was from till the part of the bridge where you sing “Holy is the Lord.” Anyways, over all it was a good night, and I got to talk to Charlie a little bit, but couldn’t get a picture because we forgot to check if the camera had film in it, hehe, oh well. =)

I’m learning how to cook! whoooo. I’ve been making things like Potstickers, hotlinks, lap chueng, hamberger helper, and pasta roni. Much better than last year when it was just frozen hambergers and ramen all the time huh? hehe, I’ll continue learning new things how to cook too.

Worship on Sunday went ok. I didn’t think it was spectacular or anything, but I got some compliments on it from people in the congregation. *shrug* All glory to God though. I just didn’t feel like it was the best or I personall wasn’t able to experience God fully through the worship that morning. Maybe my heart was still concerned about Tuesday’s events… I dunno.

Pastor Kevin asked me to babysit the boys on Saturday. Not sure if I’m going to do it yet, guess if he can find someone else, I probably won’t (unless I just drop by some to hang out with them, they are pretty fun, hehe).

AACF BBQ is tommorrow night. Got some drinks for that and stuff. Ahhhhh. Dunno who’s doing worship yet for next week, but I guess that’s something gotta talk to Erica about. Hrm, I brought down my amp here for no reason, other than just to play louder with, oh well. I like the sound of acoustified sound. =) Doesn’t that sound redundant? Ok, well off to go do some reading…

Craziness in NYC

Wow, big events today (well yesterday now) in New York, and Washington DC. The US was attacked by terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, and the Pentagon. 4 Planes were hi-jacked, and were purposely crashed into bulidings. Two into each of the Twin Towers. One into the Pentagon, and one just crashed in Pennsilvania. This has been called the worst terrorist attack on US soils, and is being compared to the likes of the Pearl Harbor many decades ago. The attacks were so…surreal. I can’t believe it actually happened here in US soils, and that the Twin Towers are now, just rubble. Thousands of people have died in the buildings, they estimate that about 10,000 people in each of the buildings. It’s sad that 266 people were killed in the airplanes that were crashed as well. All 4 planes were hi-jacked, and were headed towards california. My prayers go out to the families and friends of the ones lost in todays chaos.

I’m sort of at a loss for what to do on Sunday morning. I’m supposedly supposed to lead worship that day. I’m kind of unsure about what’s even going to happen for Sunday morning, so I’ll have to call Pastor Kevin tommorrow morning to see what’s up for that….continue to be in prayer for this nation.
