But he didn’t drop any bombs until Islamic State fighters began to threaten Kurdish oil supplies.No wonder. Thousands of Americans have settled in Erbil, Kurdistan’s capital. They’re hel...

Lake Malone News

It is early at the lake and all is quiet. Yesterday, I saw the most beautiful ballet show on the water that I have ever seen since I have been here. There was the average “in board” motor boat flying through the water and on the back were two young people skiing and they were ever so graceful! They would swoop out of the wake of the boat after they got up on the water and would gracefully swing back and forth toward each other and then ever so far away from each other; back and fo...

The enemies attack

Matthew 4:1-11When the devil attacks you He is not fighting you over your old man because your old man is not dangerous to him. He is fighting you over your new man.

Now what we need to understand is that an attack from the enemy is at the beginning of a new season in life that God is ready to mov...
