I admire strong brave people, because there are times when I’m not brave and when I’m not strong.
But I know two young people who are both brave and strong.
Zach and Dalton are giant-slayers.
In 2010 Zach started on his quest to slay the giant.
The Doctors could not figure out what was going on in his small body. His red blood cells were being killed as soon as they were being made. Steroids and blood transfusions kept him alive.
But there came a time when he needed a stronger intervention.
In steps his big brother, Dalton, who was a perfect match for bone marrow donation.
Before he was to go into the hospital for the procedure, Zach, his parents and members of the church planned a celebration of life service.
When Zach was just a small thing he gave his heart to Christ, and I don’t know of too many adults who show such faith in the Savior as this young man.
Below I’ve posted the service in its entirety. Zach chose all the songs. And I have to say, an adult couldn’t have done a better job. The songs are powerful and spoke to what he is going through right now.

Whom Shall I Fear
Have you found your dreamboat?
Pastor Barry talks about keeping the fire burning. Listen to his message using Song of Solomon Chapter 1 presented the Sunday before Valentine’s Day.
Years ago Tim LaHaye and Jerry B Jenkins wrote the Left Behind series which, at the time, became the bestselling series of all times.
Why would that be?
People were intrigued by the end times(apocalypse type stuff–now zombies seem to be the thing), but I also believe people read the novels in search of answers.
“What about me? How will it affect me?”
Maybe you’re asking yourself those questions.
On January 20, 2013 my Pastor preached on the subject. The title of his sermon was “The Fulfillment of all the Signs of His Coming.” If you’re one of those with questions, I urge you to listen to find out if we’re living on the edge of destruction?
By the way, my son came home after the sermon and said, “That was his best sermon yet.” (My son says that just about every Sunday–I’m glad he’s listening).

The Easter Message:
Mark 9: 43-48
Luke 16: 23-31
What do you know about Heaven?
Most people don’t know too much about it.
A lot of people don’t believe there is such a place.
My pastor, Barry Chambers, preaches about that place often.
Mark 10:13-16 and John 14: 1-6
“Yes, you’ve got cancer.”
Have you’ve been told that devastating news?
Pastor Barry discusses his experience in this video.
“The cancer was so large, about the size of a football, they had to take out a rib. I said to the Doctor, ‘What are you going to do, make me another woman? I’ve got a fine one already. I don’t need another one.”
The Clock is Ticking . . .
Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock.
1 Corinthians 7: 29-31
