Good Will Toward Men


Excited about that new tie you're gonna get for Christmas? Of course not! Why not use that money to make a difference instead? Just suggest to your loved ones, "You know, I'd prefer that you use some of that money you were going to spend on me to help someone else". You'll both feel good, while doing good at the same time.
So, how do we go about it? Here's one idea....several Christian organizations are now publishing Christmas catalogs. For the price of a bottle of cologne or a flannel shirt you can give someone much needed medicine, food, or clean water. Click here, here, or here for ideas.

SBTC


From November 14 - 16 I was in Corpus Christi for the annual Southern Baptists of Texas Convention. We took one of our feeding unit trailers to display, and also set up a booth for our missions ministries. We saw some old friends, and made some new ones. Here is a picture of our pastor, Steve Dorman, talking with a couple that we met this week.

I Think I'll Pass


I refused to stay here....

Costa Rica



Here are a couple pictures from my recent trip to Costa Rica. The first picture was taken in San Jose at the Spanish school. Here I am with my grammar class. The picture on the bottom was taken at Playa Jaco, which is on the Pacific side of the country. I spent a couple of days here with a young missionary family.

English as a Second Language

We have a wonderful opportunity coming up next week here at FBC. We will be offering training on how to teach English as a second language. The potential for such a ministry should be obvious. If you live within driving distance of Brownsville, please consider joining us. Call the church office at (956) 542-5334, or e-mail me for more information.

¡Pura Vida!

I believe I owe the teeming throngs who read this blog an explanation. Why, they all must be wondering, hasn't Tracy updated his blog in over a month? The answer.... I just spent 4 weeks in Costa Rica studying Spanish! More details, and some pics, coming soon.
