Nathan McDade continues speaking on “A.K.A. God” series about the names of God in the Bible. He shows us “El Roi – the God Who Sees & Knows My Story.” Here is the study guide download for those wanting to study ahead about the all-seeing Author.

Speaking of all-seeing, this video lets you see not all, but a little from the dozen-plus events at last month’s Mountain Adventure Week.

Izzo’s in Nicaragua

Posted in better disciples at 11:46 PM by alexlozada

Yankee fans are outnumbered here in Maryland, especially as the Orioles enjoy a renaissance. Fellow New Yorkers Jeff & Erin Izzo are back in Maryland to raise support for their mission among Nicaraguan young people. MCC’s Global Outreach pastor Tom Moen hosted an informational dinner for them at one of our family’s favorite almost-like-New-York pizza shops, Fortunato’s Abingdon (though the owner is an O’s fan, I bravely wore Yankees gear in honor of Jeff).  Find out more about their ministry here (they’re partners  with Fellowship of Christian Athletes) or on Facebook.
