    >> Subject: Moses
    >> This is almost overwhelming when you think about it.
    >> You MUST read to the end: (smile)
    >> Moses and the people were in the desert, but what was he
    >>going to do with ! them?
    >> They had to be fed, and feeding 2 or 3 million people requires
    >>a lot of food.
    >> Accordin g to the Quartermaster General in the Army, it is
    >>reported that Moses would have to have had 1500 tons of food each
    >>day. Do you know that to bring that much food each day, two freight
    >>trains, each at least a mile long, would be required!
    >> Besides you must remember, they were out in the desert, so
    >>they would have to have firewood to use in cooking the food. This
    >>would take 4000 tons of wood and a few more freight trains, each
    >>a mile long, just for one day.
    >> And just think, they were forty years in transit.
    >> And Oh yes! They would have to have water. If they only had
    >>enough to drink and wash a few dishes, it would take 11,000,000
    >>gallons each day and a freight train with tank cars, 1800 miles
    >>long, just to bring water!
    >> And then another thing!
    >> They had to get across the Red Sea at night. Now, if they went
    >>on a narrow path, double file, the line would be 800 miles long and
    >>would require35 ! days and nights to get through. So there had to
    >>be a space in the RedSea, 3 miles wide so that they could walk 5000
    >>abreast to get over in onenight.
    >> But then, there is another problem...............each time
    >>they camped at the end of the day, a campgroun d two-thirds the
    >>size of the state of Rhode Island was required, or a total of 750
    >>square miles long........ think of it! This much space for camping.
    >> Do you think Moses figured all this out before he left Egypt?
    >>I think not!
    >> You see, Moses believed in God. God took care of these things
    >>for him.
    >> Now do you think! God has any problem taking care of all your
    >> I asked the Lord to bless you As I prayed for you today. To
    >>guide you and protect you as you go along your way.... His love is
    >>always with you,His promises are true, And when we give Him all our
    >>cares, You know He will see us through.
    >> Our God is an Awesome God!!
    >> So when the road you're traveling on seems difficult at best,
    >>just remember I'm praying and God will do the rest.

    About, 8 years ago, I had my first bout with kidney stones. I was alone in the washroom at work (no one checked on me) and in real agony. I started reciting the Lord's Prayer repeatedly and I was able to get over the pain enough to get down to the Security booth where they called an ambulance.

    And when I'm facing hard times (just learned yesterday a friend of mine died on Monday), I would recite the Serenity Prayer. I find it gives me enough peace to at least cope with the situation and get on with my day.

    There are a lot of believers out there. I don't attend church regularly but I am a believer.

    I just got back home from a potluck dinner for international students. Normally my wife and I lead a Bible study for Chinese students on Friday nights. Tonight I had the pleasure of meeting an Armenian Christian from Beirut, Lebanon (her family escaped the genocides of 1915 in Armenia).

    My lab group at school consists of two Korean Christian PhD students, one Korean Christian post-doc, one American Christian PhD student (myself), one American Christian MS student, one unknown American MS student, one Egyptian Sunni Muslim PhD student, and I think our advisor is an American Christian (he gets along well the Sudanese Christian professor).

    I have a good friend whom originally came from Kenya, but is now a US citizen, that used to co-lead Bible studies with me and he loves trains. I called him up to join me on the 3.5-hr drive to Ft. Wayne for the 765 powered santa caboose trips, but unfortunately, he couldn't go because he was returning to Kenya for 9 months. Hopefully when he gets back, I can get him involved in the hobby more (and join me in leading the Bible Study!)
