Would you be willing to miss a meal #forthemission ?
Skip lunch, pray for the nations, and text 4mission to 80888 to donate to global missions the $10 you would have spent on a meal

Ebola in the United States
I wanted to take a few moments to present some facts.   Ebola is not infectious unless the person is showing symptoms, and even then it's only through direct contact with body fluids.  This patient flew from Liberia on 19th, and he was not showing symptoms when traveling (hence, not contagious).  He started showing symptoms around the 24th and was admitted to a hospital.  He was released, but re-admitted to a hospital a few days later.

It's very similar to a case we had here in Senegal.  An individual came from an infected country and was diagnosed in Senegal.   The individual had contact with family members, two medical facilities, and in the community.  Health officials managed to effectively isolate the patient and locate 60 people with whom he had come in contact.  They monitored these individuals for the 21-day incubation period.  The man recovered and was repatriated, and Senegal is now Ebola-free.  Now consider how much more capable the United States is at containing this virus.  Hopefully you find this encouraging.

One last thing.  Prayer.  We are thankful God has protected Senegal, and we pray he continues to do so.  As for this case in America... Pray for the patient, pray for the medical workers, and pray for cooperation from the community members.  While you're at it, say a prayer for the situation here in West Africa.

Hospital where the guy is being held is on my way to work, 2 miles away from my apartment.  People are to say the least, flipping out here.  I unfortunately have a cold right now, no fever or anything....just a cold.  And even if i tell people that, they're getting frightened.

Luckily my co-workers are calm.

I have just created this Google+ community for Orlando City SC.  It will be a great place for fans to come together to discuss all things OCSC and build anticipation for next year's MLS debut.  If +Orlando City Soccer Club ever decides to resume activity on their Google+ page, I intend to transfer ownership of the community to them.

If you haven't already joined the +Florida State Seminoles community, you can find that one here:  https://plus.google.com/communities/109618833758875507546

Need a chant to get excited about the World Cup?  This game-day anthem just might help our U.S. Men's National Team make it out of the group of death.   #worldcup2014   #usmnt

It's a sad day.  +Disney Parks is set to replace Epcot's Maelstrom with a Frozen-themed ride.  I don't think this new Frozen ride is appropriate for Epcot's World Showcase.  It belongs in Magic Kingdom.

Maelstrom, in the Norway Pavilion, just celebrated its 25th birthday last year.  Featuring a 28-foot flume drop along a chilly boat tour through Norwegian scenes ranging from Vikings to trolls to oil rigs, even a peek through a hole in the exterior of the ride building, Maelstrom was perhaps my favorite ride in all of Epcot.  It will be greatly missed.
When Walt Disney promised that Disneyland would never be completed, so long as there is imagination left in the world, he made a promise to our guests that we take seriously at all our locations around the world. This year, one particular product of imagination -- Disney Animation’s blockbuster hit Frozen -- captured the hearts and minds of people around the world and gave us a new opportunity to make good on Walt’s pledge.

Have you ever wished you could curl up with the Bible like you would a good novel?  We are accustomed to a dense encyclopedic version of the Bible - chapter divisions, verse numbers, notes, cross references, etc.  This, while valuable for studying the Bible, can render mere casual reading of The Good Book a daunting task.  One book designer wants to change that by transforming the Bible into pure literary art.
