March Photo Challenge – Someone I talked to today.

waiting in the pick-up after the fireside:  Jordan, Abe, Grace

Not only did I talk today, I listened.  Abe was asked by a bishop in a neighboring town to speak to their youth the next time he was home.  Abe gave an incredible talk using these two scriptures as his topic:

Joshua 1:9:  "Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed:  for the Lord thy God is with thee withersoever thou goest."


Ephesians 6:11-18:  "Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil . . . "

Abe showed pictures and taught about specific types of armor the military uses today and how and why it is used (he also threw in interesting Abrams tank, body armor, and Kevlar helmet trivia).  Abe made the comparison of physical protection to spiritual protection as taught by Paul in Ephesians.  It was a very powerful talk and I was grateful to have been in attendance.  I twiddled my thumbs all the way home.

I can imagine he had their full attention. I know he would have mine (no easy task on a Sunday night). Great scriptures.

Abe gave me parts of this talk today. I wished I could have been there for the presentation so bad.
