For some reason, it appears that the embedded link to the podcast, “On Eating Lunch Alone,” did not show up in the email version of the blog post, though it is on the blog itself. So, here is the direct link:
As you start the new school year, do you notice that your days have little daily stresses, like wondering who you’re going to eat lunch with? Listen to what Sandra has to say to you from God’s word about this and be encouraged! Enjoy! – Arthur
Hey TD, it’s time for another edition of Serve Our Society Saturday! This Saturday, we will once again visit our friends at the So. Pasadena Care Center. Our visits mean so much to them that we cannot NOT go! They really look forward to our visits.
Meet at the Hsiehs’ at 9:30 a.m. and get picked up by noon. There will be no lunch this week due to a meeting.
Make the time to do what’s good and right, TD, and you know God will bless you as you do!

Here’s that great video our Bring Me Hope team showed at TD on Friday (thanks Megan!). I’ve been singing this song all day today (ok, maybe not singing, since I don’t speak Chinese, but definitely humming!). Study the faces of the orphaned children and consider what their lives may be like. Look at their joy, pride, … and dignity, and then please say a word of prayer for the millions of orphaned children they represent. Then begin praying what future part you will have in His story in the lives of some of this world’s orphaned.
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1:27
Thank you, TD, for such an amazing surprise last week! Wow, we were blown away and totally taken aback by your kindness, generosity, creativity, depth of thought, and … sneakiness! We had no idea! It was a real blessing and real ministry for us. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We feel humbled and loved.
Now let’s get those girls over here and let’s love ’em as a TD family! See you at TD!
Wow, summer has swept by! Come join us for our final summer TD meeting! In addition to worshiping our God in song and having fun with each other, we have more:
Praise God! Most of our Bring Me Hope team is back from the Big Country after serving orphaned children at the Bring Me Hope summer camp! Come hear their stories, see their pics and videos, and catch their passion as they share with us what God is doing for orphaned children through BMH in the Big Country … and what He may be leading some of you to do in the future.
Aileen and Ashley have also returned from Taiwan after living at an orphanage for most of the summer. They too will be sharing what God did in their lives and what He’s doing for orphaned children in Taiwan.
Last, but not least, Friday is our last time to hang out with Clara at TD before she defects … errr … moves on to serve at BASIC :), so make sure you come and sit next to her this week!
