I enjoy helping people. I am an encourager and I can see the good in others. I want people to understand what it means to be an authentic Christian and not just a religious "nut." I believe if Christians lived and loved others as Jesus lived and loved others, we would experience more of heaven on earth than hell on earth. These thoughts and writings are intended to encourage you to be who God originally designed you to be. They are also intended to challenge you and make you think. Also, I want you to know that I'm praying for you every day. Blessings, Murphy Blessings to you, Murphy

Please Pray with Me ...

Dear friends...

I'm asking you to pray for my sister, Karen. Hurricane Ike ruined her home. She and her husband Bubba live about 30 yards from Calcasieu Lake.

(This pic was taken during better times. Christmas, 2007)

Please pray that God will allow them to receive the maximum amount of insurance money they are due (for structure and contents.) The wave action (pounding the house) caused the walls to buckle away from the floor of the wooden structure. There were snakes in the house and a sewerage pipe was broken by the movement of the house. Sewage was backed-up in their master bedroom.

Karen and Bubba are doing fairly well in spirit, but the stress of the whole thing is weighty. If any of you feel led to help them financially, you can make a check out to Karen Wheat and mail it to their home: 349 Miguel Street; Lake Charles, Louisiana; 70607.

Your prayers are most welcomed. Blessings to you all. love, murphy

This was the view from Karen and Bubba's house on July 4th, 2008.

As we did the inventory, we had to wear masks because of the mold spores and fungus. It took several days to count everything. They had about 20 - 22 inches of water in the house.
