I'm not kidding, a 45 foot whale has washed up on the beach in Joppa. I'm smiling at the irony with Jonah as he was headed to Joppa. It's too bad that the whale had to die for everyone to get a chance to see it. This beach is about 6 miles from us. I would like to go over and see it but it is being towed to a port where the 20 ton creature will be lifted by a crane.
God gave us a great morning. We looked at II Corinthians 8, "Grace Giving." There was a sweet spirit in our service. Tonight we get to complete the first missionary journey with Paul and Barnabus. Thanks for your prayers for our ministry. God's good.
