Chinese Fire Drill

So I have a funny adventure to share. I visited the Ambassadors Academy on Friday. Well after an eventful day of evangelism on Hollywood my dad asked me to go with Anita to get the van for the mentors. Sure! So we went to the van and hopped in. We picked up the mentors and my dad said I could ride in the van with the mentors on the way to Glendale. Dru would ride in the car with my dad. So we headed to Glendale and followed my dad's car and the bus.

Now since there is traffic in Hollywood, Jaylene, one of the lady mentors says "Hey! Let's do a Chinese Fire Drill." "What?" I ask. Jaylene then explains to me it is when they park the car in traffic and everyone runs out and switches places. "Oh No!" "No way." I say. "Let's see what your dad will do when he sees us." says Jaylene and Leon. I shake my head and say that I'm not doing it.

So we decide to pretend. Anita parks the car in the traffic and we all open our door, pretending we are going to get out. You should of seen the look on my dad's face. We did this several times and he's like shaking his head in amazement. Anita then gets a phone call and he asks her "Are you corrupting my daughter?" lol. We are all in the car busting up a gut. So we stop for a while.

At the next break the rest of the team plan on doing it for real when to our very eyes, Dru jumps out of the car!!! We think he is going to run to us when we see he makes a beeline towards the bus ahead. Woah!!! We are all wondering what's going on now? Well we call my dad and I guess that the bus driver got the wrong directions from Hollywood to Glendale so Dru had to hop out of the car in the middle of traffic and run to the bus to help the bus driver because he knew the directions of how to get there. We all had a wonderful time on that trip fooling around with my dad. What fun that was!!!

Academy #4

For those of you who don't know my dad leads an academy every month for Way of the Master. I was able to come out on Friday and do some evangelism out on Hollywood and Glendale. I had the privlege of meeting Winona Huber from Illinois. She is a grandmother with such a tender heart. She came out here for the Academy. I remember hearing her share the law and the gospel and she brought me to tears. It was so neat that she could use her story of her brother becoming ill with a virus and dieing a few days later. She could then tell us how we as unbelievers are ill because of our sins and how Jesus is the cure. It was awesome to see how her variation of sharing the law and the gospel impacted my life and another lady hearing the gospel preached this way for the first time. It was something I'll never forget. I gave her a big hug afterwards and we are keeping in touch.

I have one little prayer request. Just like Winona went through the Academy this month to strengthen her witnessing one-to-one and open-airing, I will be doing the same in the August Academy. I am really nervous and excited. I just pray that when I get there that God will give me the words to say and be able to have the most tender heart like my sister in Christ Winona.
