Surprised Crooks

A story from Perth, Australia sent along by a friend is comically instructional. Seems that someone stole a python from a wildlife center in Perth. The thieves no doubt thought they had made a clean job of it, but the snake did not cooperate. The six-foot long python swallowed a woylie, which turns out to be an endangered marsupial.

Turns out that the woylie had been fitted with a tracking device by the wildlife conservation department. So the police simply used the signals from that device to find the python with the woylie still inside. No doubt the crooks were shocked when the police stormed into the house where they were keeping the snake.

There is a good illustration here. Remember what the Bible says. “Be sure your sin will find you out” (Numbers 32:23).

Happy Birthday!

Today is Cynthia's birthday. We are celebrating by going to a wedding rehearsal for a wedding tomorrow of a young couple at church. Good opportunity to share the gospel with a lot of lost relatives.

Next Saturday, the 20th, is our 40th anniversary. We gave ourselves the new kitchen as an anniversary gift. Glad it was finished in time!

Haven't had a moment to spare in the last two weeks. If the ministry gets any busier I don't know what we will do. The fruit from it all has been overwhelming. Such an honor to represent such a wonderful Savior and Lord. I'll try to share some of it next time I have a moment.

Just wanted to say happy birthday to my bride and let you know I haven't forgotten about you folks that read this either.
