UPDATE: Flooding & Needs Across Malawi

Please, continue to pray as the need for clean water is paramount! YOU could be the one to give water to a thirsty soul!! Send your funds for water and food to COMPASSION SERVICES INTERNATIONAL for MALAWI!

In Malawi, where almost 1 million people have been affected by floods, aid workers said they were worried about the spread of disease in some 170 makeshift camps where more than 125,000 people have sought refuge without sufficient toilets.  “This may be the most devastating such disaster in the region’s history, and its damage can escalate quickly if we do not act immediately,” said Concern Worldwide’s U.S. chief executive Colleen Kelly.

At least half a million survivors of a powerful cyclone in southeast Africa are at risk of fatal diseases, from cholera and dysentery to malaria, aid workers warned on Thursday, as rescue teams struggled to reach flood-hit communities.

WordfortheWay.net is now legit!!

We’ve successfully registered our domain name WordfortheWay.net. This is a major milestone in the site’s brief existence.

The big difference for you, the reader, is the removal of all of those pesky ads! I really got tired of those. This registration also opens up some more functionality for me as the administrator of the site. (I’ve got some more learning to do.)

Stay tuned for an even better Word for the Way!

Finally Done!!

I’m happy to say that I finally finished scheduling the 12 month Bible Reading portion of the blog. Whew!! Now that was a chore. The daily blogs that have each day’s Bible Reading coincide with the Monthly Bible Reading Charts on the blog as well as the ones we passed out at the Lighthouse Church.

I underestimated the amount of time that it would take me to complete this phase (by a whole lot). It ended up taking about 80 hours to finish it. I had to put everything else I had scheduled for the blog on hold pending completion of this. I was afraid to stop.

Here are a few stats. The King James Version of the Bible has:

66 Books — 39 Old Testament + 27 New Testament

1,189 Chapters

31,102 Verses

789,650 Words

Progress Report

A lot has been accomplished in the last 3 days. Bible Reading material is loaded that will cover through the first week in June. This part of the work is tedious, but I’m sure it will be well worth the effort. Kenny G is keeping me relaxed while I work.

I apologize for the ads. It appears I have met the quota for pages that triggered the “add ads” option. Right now I don’t have to pay anything to use WordPress to publish Word for the Way. The ads will only be removed when I choose to start on one of their pay plan options.  I will do this in due time, just not today.

>>Two days until launch!!<<
