Grandpa Menchaca's great-grandson, Michael (my son), was the BBQ chef this memorial day. His son & granddaughter were also beside him enjoying the family time together. Check out Bobby's page for more details of grandpa's recovery: http://spaces.msn.com/members/menchacafamily/

Grandpa Menchaca out on Memorial Day

It was a joy to see Grandpa Menchaca stop by and wrestle down a bit of barbeque and some watermelon. We all had a better time knowing this pioneer and patriarch was in good spirits and enjoying family and food. (not necessarily in that order)

National Youth Day 2005
The Tabernaculo Youth Ministry dug deep and presented an incredible night of worship & surrender on May 22, 2005. Mike Fernandez & the Impact Now! team was also there to recognize the wonderful contributions this group of young people has made over the last several decades... approaching $17,000 of giving to Missionaries through the Speed-the-Light outreach. Keep it up!... SERIOUSLY!

Thanks Smiley for inviting me to speak to these incredible young people and wonderful volunteers. It was an emotional evening dedicated in honor of a community volunteer who lost his life this last year. His son received a great number of awards, as well as did many other outstanding teens.

Tai Pei Starbucks

Tai Pei Starbucks

Took a minute to check in before the 10 hour flight from TaiPei/Chiang
Kai-Shek Airport to Seattle... Some things stay the same... Coffee, for

Starbucks is starbucks is starbucks!

You know... I guess the biggest dissapointment in this trip is that the Starbucks is just about IDENTICAL to anyone I have ever seen in U.S.  Jakarta was good... Had my traditional Chai, but the difference there was that they used the tea bags instead of the Tazo syrup, and the soy was not as rich. [Guess they ship the better stuff out to us.]

Sitting in TaiPei right now, and enjoying a Black Eye for the 14 hour trip ahead as I go to the Starbucks Mecca... Seattle.  I wonder if there will be a Starbucks in the airport there... You think?

Well.. Only a few more hours (about 28 by the clock, 36 by the body) left to travel!

Did u know?

Some things I have learned...
People will walk around with their cell phone ring tones blaring for no reason whatsoever... Not talking about songs... Just the beeps!  go figure!



Kona Intercession

Jakarta, Indonesia
Wednesday 10am
I just finished spending a few minutes with James ‘Jim’ Orred who works with YWAM [Youth With A Mission] in Kona, Hawaii.  It is wonderful to know that new and exciting things are happening all over the planet, and there is a trust and hope in divine providence.  When ever you need to take a trip to an exciting field of operations... I think the quote was “We are waiting for the Latino people to come and help us all over the world to bring their passion”

More later...


World Harvest Center Indonesia!

This morning we arrived at the World Harvest Center drinking a can of Pocari Sweat!  This is a wonderful place with wireless internet café in the foyer of the Center.

This morning we translated for 2 hours and going for another afternoon of more declarations of what God is doing ALL OVER the Planet!

Jakarta Update!

Finished the first morning of prelim meetings, on our way to the cultural celebration by Indonesian worshippers where we will worship God!

More about this later on tonight!
