A Taste of Palestine...

July 7, 2014

Dear Friends and Family,

Well, I hope y'alls past 4th of July weekend was terriffic!

One of the most iconic things I saw was a restored old red Ford pickup truck with a huge American flag on a pole mounted in the bed, driving along the highway.  The flag was billowing behind in full splendor. 'Murica! 

As y'all know, Palestine is a city of churches. Many of these churches have sign boards that they will put certain phrases on. Elder Heward and I have been collecting these quotes. Some are funny, some are serious, some give helpful advice, and some I disagree with. Nonetheless here's a few:

Change begins at the end of your comfort zone.
Christ has risen! He is risen indeed! Alelujah!
The only thing you can give and still keep is your word.
Christ's love, not human nails, held him to the cross.
Christ crossed out our sins on Calvary.
If the grass is greener on the other side, fertilize yours.
Our lifeguard walks on water.
Right thinking produces right living. 
God's not dead.
Don't pray for rain and complain about the mud.
We need to put God back in the U.S.A. where He belongs.
The oak tree is the little nut that held his ground.
He who forgives, ends the quarrel.
Patience is a virtue that carries alot of wait.
Fun in the Son  V.B.S. (VBS stands for vacation bible school.)
(Father's Day) Children of God obey your Father.
Come Holy Spirit come!
Many people who say "our Father" live like orphans.
Prayer- the world's best wireless connection!
Work that is cheerfully done is usually well done.
Your words are windows to your heart.
(Auto repair shop honorary mention) We repair what your husband fixed.
Nature is God's signature.
God thinks one way, man thinks another; who needs to change?
God's bottom line- Believe in my Son Jesus.
When looking for faults use a mirror not a telescope.
God without man is still God; but man without God is nothing.
Don't let your yearnings exceed your earnings.
Purity, prayer, fasting, and love impresses God. Money, pride, and sexy don't.
The key to heaven is Jesus Christ.
The Bible: read it- believe it- obey it- live it.
Jesus is the answer.
(Christmas seasonal) Jesus is the reason for the season.
(Christmas seasonal) Happy birthday baby Jesus!
A person without prayer is like a tree without roots.
(Vet's office honorable mention) Don't get caught littering- spay & neuter.
Only one bound to Christ is truly free.
Yesterday and tomorrow are thieves of today.

Hope y'all enjoyed that taste of Palestine.  Have a great week!

-Elder Hunt
