Mostly West Coast :)




Good Morning!

  I didn't take that many West Coast Pictures I was a little preoccupied ;) 


  The week before West Coast we had a fellowship meeting in Santa Paula. The service was awesome, Bro. Tim Brown Preached. It was good seeing everyone's favorite guy, Victor Storm. He did a great job leading service and even sang a special. 









The following day was our highly anticipated, Round Up Sunday! A big evangelism push for our Sunday School Kids, Many of whom brought their parents to church. We all dressed up as cowboys, even yours truly, lol. I'm a city boy so I really didn't know what I was doing. haha

DUNK TANK!!


The Calm Before the Storm

There were small skits and plenty of laughs

Skit members 

Matty James playing the bad guy roll

One of my first customers at the Dart Booth. You have to be prayed up to take this job. lol 

Pastor was dunked shorty after this. 




West Coast

-The following week I drove up with Josh and his dad. Matt was with us also, the drive up there wasn't too bad. Lot's of wind but we avoided the grapevine taking a different route. Let me just let you know that I had a really bad cold during the entire time of WC. Don't know how I made it, Lack of sleep only made it worse. I was pretty much living off of DayQuil. lol We didn't stay at usual Raddison/Fresno Inn/Double Tree/Triple Stack Baconater. lol No complaints tho, the place had two rooms and a living room haha 

Quick Story: My buddy Jacob stayed with us and well we only had four card keys, he had to basically depend on us to get in the room. On the last night as customarily, we all go to Denny's. Load up on water with Lemon and have a good time. lol Well him and I went to different Denny's and we were different groups, his contained someone special to him. So I naturally understood. 

Well...he got back much later than we did. Well we were all  so tired that we knocked out. My phone was charging out of reach and I fell asleep! My phone was on silent so I never heard his calls. He knocked and knocked on the door and no one heard him. This was 4am, he ended up sleeping in his truck for a couple hours. Then came back and knocked at 6. One of us finally heard and let him in. He basically broke the record for latest hour return to a hotel in conference history. 

"Welcome to our Humble Commode. "lol 

Stumbled into a small store trying to get quarters for a self car wash. Found the Mexican Candy Heaven!

We know who marked up Jacob's Tuck, He didn't really mind tho *cough cough*

I was too lazy to zoom in. lol 

Yuraih and Arthel teasing me about me currently dating. We were so tired, including Marvin. The guy who took the picture. lol I think we talked about just every topic we could think of. I ordered a hot tea, first time ever. lol 


One of the best pics ever. Keep in mind, all Burbank and soon to be Burbank. lol ;) But in this group are new converts and they look like seasoned vets. Thank God, he is really doing great things in our church. We had more new people that went, they just didn't make it in this pic. :)

As mentioned earlier, I was preoccupied. :)




Anyways, not the most pics, half of which weren't even West Coast related. lol It is what it is. lol The services were amazing Bro. Lackey's preaching the last night, stuck with me the most. For those of us who don't attend T.T. we didn't know some of his background and how God lead him to take over the Elder Morton's Church. He let everyone know how grateful he was for a praying daddy and how it impacted his life!  

Hope you have a great day and God Bless

September Ended



Good Morning! 

  Hope all is well This is what it looks like outside this morning!





Its been getting pretty cold in the mornings, I blast the heater. Just in case I haven't said it before, I don't drink hot coffee. I only like Ice Coffee, so all year long I drink Ice Coffee in the morning. So it doesn't matter how cold it gets :)

I had a rather busy weekend and I managed to get a few pics! 




Friday


Corn Mazes.....First proposed a week prior, as a youth and prayer night. I wan't for it initially but it was voted and well majority rules. lol  My vote was for Go-Karts(Only 10 minutes from my house) Lol A good size group of us went and we had a great time, running through mazes with Marvin and Drew was hilarious. I came so close to falling a couple times and are girls barely made it out alive. lol 



Panorama Group on top!




 Saturday



We got home from the Maze around 1am and we had to be up at 4:30 that same day. A bunch of our guys were going to Men's day in Fresno. Sorry no pics of the actual service, it's kinda top secret. lol ;) The preaching was really awesome and it was good seeing some familiar faces. I actually wish we could have spent the entire day up there but oh well. On the way up there, we all got to chat with Pastor the entire time and that was pretty neat. All in all, a great time. 


Sunday



Jasmine got baptized! 








Last but not least, family came down to visit from the bay area. Blessed to say, we had some of their home cooking! We actually meet them at the Observatory and the place was packed. We had Johnathan and Fatima with us, a couple new youngsters at our church. It was their first time there. So back to my family, the siblings started scheming and now we might be looking at Thanksgiving in Frisco. Not a bad idea ;)  

I felt a burden for my cousin and her husband and kids. Do you ever look at a family and think, "I could picture them in church living for God". Well that's exactly how I felt. Take it to the Lord in prayer!


To wrap it up, I hope you guys have a great day. Hope to see many of you at West Coast or even Spanish Conference!

Have a Blessed Day,

Elias

First Step

Good Morning,


   Hope everyone had a great weekend and had good church !


I got a lot of studying done over the weekend and didn't really go out much! except to purchase this:









Just so know....I am a complete rookie at the piano! lol but like the saying goes, "A journey of a thousand miles, begins with one step." I gotta jam out to my Bro. Pixler albums. hahaha! So if you have advise, throw it my way!!


Next Topic.......CHAPERONS.

A wave of offers have hit me recently, so I had to share this. A friend of mine and I came up with the idea that we should develop an app for Apostolic Chaperons. lol "AppChap" (C). lol This app should include the following but not limited to:


1)   Review and Ratings! (How good are you at your job and what do others have to say about you)
2)  Chaperon BMI. (Controversial indeed but we need to know     what were getting into ;) lol  If you don't know what that is....well we basically want to know how fluffy you are.
3)  Profile Pic (Full Profile Pic preferably....see number 2.) 
4)  Are you considerate of menu prices? Lol 
5)  Experience. The more of it, the more valuable you are. lol
6)  Prayed up, a must. lol 





Plenty more items we can include in the app but if you can't provide just the first 6, you probably don't qualify. lol 


Have a great day :)

Good Afternoon, 


  I didn't go to the the fair after all but a slight switch in plans and a good dinner made it all better :) 

  So......I came across this photo, had to post it.  




Most of my closer friends and especially relatives will agree, this applies to me. lol ;)

Good Afternoon!


I hope you had a great summer and are eagerly anticipating the COLD weather! I know I am. If you live anywhere near L.A. keep in mind that this is the last weekend for the County Fair. I'm planning on going sometime this weekend. If I do, I promise to get some pics. 

So I was involved in this crazy pick up football game on Monday. I ended up getting hurt :( Guys typically exaggerate their injury's so I will spare you the details. lol So a GOOD friend of mine, suggested that I ,"Retire from all that" and go back to blogging. lol!! ;) . So here I am,

I look forward to posting frequently and of course pics, Have a great day! :)

Du$t and Ru$t

Hello,

Money can't buy back time.
Money can't make you feel loved.
Money can't go with you to next life.
Money is a man made concept.

The love of money has probably caused more deaths then we could ever fathom.
The love of money has probably brought a lifetime of regret to someone you know.


Don't let your mind constantly dwell on money and riches. We could gather and accumulate all the junk we want and still feel poor inside. Let the junk pile up, sky high and gather dust and rust.


Keep it simple :)

God bless,

Eli
