Zambia Votes

On September 20, 2011, Zambians will go to the polls to vote for a new president and members of parliament. I wish the country a peaceful election. I look forward to a time when leaders will come forward to serve instead of enriching themselves.

Queen City Marathon

It came and went (September 11). Congratulations to the brave souls who put up with the heat (the thermometer climbed to near 30 degree C). What I found most exciting was the effect of preparation (training) even before the race started. The majority of people looked fit. No wonder they say, it is the preparation and not the actual race that matters. For the first time, I also heard from the pasta party (before the race) that a prayer meeting was taking place at the First Baptist Church in downtown Regina to encourage the runners and their safety! This was a first and I would have liked to go.

Bible Math

You have probably heard of verses like "I will be be with you to the close of the age," "Where two are gathered, I AM `in their midst." As rightly said by the children's story teller, the bible has a different math. Simply put, one plus one is not two but three! The third PERSON is the Lord. As well, you are never alone. HE is always by your side.
