Old Timers!

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:37 pm  

Jesse and I met up with my partners Bayo, Tom Frost and Eduardo Zamora. We had great fellowship together and talked about the nuts and bolts of how you actually do fund raising.

J and I then went over to see my partners at Reboot. We’ve had an issue with on the computer we got not working.

They either fix them or replace them for us. Works for me! We dropped off one unit and next month we’ll pick up three: two for Huntington Terraces and one for Huntington Ridge.

We checked on the plants at my office in Doraville then went to Best Buy to pick up my camera. Finally! I had a service plan on my SD 880 Power Shot, so they fixed it. Looks like the replaced the entire lens assembly. That’s like replacing the engine in a car! So I’m happy about that.

We went to Azalea to help the kids.

The best news was that while as was at Azalea, a group of my young men came to the mission.


These guys have been with me since nearly the start of my ministry here 14 years ago! Great young men. All doing well. Happy day. I hadn’t seen Christian in probably five years. He was one of my favorite kids from Bulgaria. Groovy!

J and I watched the cars slam into each other. Crazy.

I liked the way these con trails spread out.

This lake was frozen! Amazing weather.

Beautiful at the mission as we were leaving.s

Families and Service Projects!

Tim A. Cummins @ 12:54 am  

I had my whole family today for lunch! Amen!
Kathy and Ashely joined us at Madina for lunch with Bennett, Bret and Susie Cox, Bayo and new friend Sarah and of course my main man, Jesse.



We had a great time talking about ministry. Great to have friends!

After lunch we went to Post Oaks to check out this basement area that we’ve been given. We have to hang sheet rock, tape/float, paint, hang a new grid for a dropped ceiling, install it, redo the flooring, probably put in a couple of toilets.




Pretty big job. They’re going to provide all the materials, we’ll find volunteer men’s teams to help us do the construction. Win-win, baby!

I had a meeting with the manager and Bennett. I laid it out to him what we do and who we are. I’ve found it’s much better to tell them straight out, “We’re Christians, and we’re about telling people about Jesus. We won’t hit them over the head with a Bible, and everyone is welcome whether they’re Christians are not, but I want you to understand where we’re coming from.”
He assured me he understood. Kareem is the manager. He was a captain in the Iraqi Air Force. He’s a cool guy.

It’s best to be straight with people. If they have a problem with what I’m doing, I’d rather know it at the beginning.

J and I went to Azalea to help the kids. Lots to do!

I got to spend some good time with Ashley this evening. She’s headed to Knoxville, TN to go to a Journalism conference with the other editors with the school paper. They’re paying her way. Excellente!

Back to admin work.

I’ve been studying Spanish more aggressively this year. It’s my resolution. I’ve been watching a lot of Telemundo and Univision.
