TALK 1 (Dr Mokelu): INTROS BY NAT PRES (Gp Capt AD Ejila) - ... PRAISE THE LORD ... ELDERS, BROTHERS AND SISTERS ... THANKING GOD FOR THIS MORNING AND FROM YESTERDAY LOOKING AT 30 YEARS OF GOD's FAITHFULNESS ... EVEN AS WE THANK GOD FOR ELDERS IN OUR MIDST TO SHARE GOD's WORD AND ENCOURAGE ... SO WE START WITH TALK 1 TO BE GIVEN BY DR MOKELU ... WHO HAS BEEN WITH US FAITHFULLY ALL THESE YEARS ... PRAISE THE LORD ... THE WAY WE DOING IT AS IF WE ARE NOT FOOTBALL FANS ... THE LEAST WE MUST DO MUST BE THE JUMP AND SHOUT LIKE WHAT WE DO WHEN OUR FAVOURITE TEAMS SCORE A GOAL ESPECIALLY A CRUCIAL ONE ... PRAISE THE LORD ... HALLELUJAH ... AMEN ... (a) WE ARE HERE TO KILL 2 BIRDS WITH ONE STONE - CELEBRATE 30 YRS OF GOD'S FAITHFULNESS AND REMEMBER THE SACRIFICE OF JESUS THAT WAS PAID SO MANY YRS AGO ... AND ANY TIME I THINK ABOUT IT ESP AS A DR ... I REJOICE ... KNOWING WHAT HE WENT THROUGH ON MY BEHALF ... GOOD FRIDAY WAS ACTUALLY FATAL FRIDAY FOR JESUS ... AND THEY MOCKED HIM EVEN WHEN HE TOOK THE PAIN OF THE NAILS IN HIS HANDS AND FEET ... (b) AGAIN JESUS DELIBERATELY TOOK THE PAIN WITHOUT ANAESTHESIA ... FOR US ... (c) LOST OVER 5 PINTS OF BLOOD AND DIED IN TERRIBLE AGONY AND SAID IT IS FINISHED ... NO MEDICAL HELP ... NOTHING ... TO MAKE US WHO WE ARE ... (D) HIS SACRIFICE TRANSITED/TRANSLATING/TRANSFERRING US FROM - (1) SIN TO SALVATION by the Blood shed (2) SLAVERY TO SOVEREIGNTY (3) SICKNESSES TO SUPER HEALTH by THE STRIPES HE TOOK UPON HIS BODY (4) SORROW TO SUCCOUR ... SE WE GIVE JESUS A STANDING OVATION ... AN UNPRECEDENTED SACRIFICE THAT HAS NEVER HAPPENED AND WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN ... WILLINGLY - AUTH TO LAY DOWN HIS LIFE OR TAKE IT UP AND IF HE HAD REFUSED TO DIE OR RESURRECT ... WHAT WILL HAVE BEEN THE FATE OF MANKIND? THANK GOD HE DID AGREE TO REDEEM MANKIND BY HIS SACRIFICE FOR SIN ... AND WHILE WE CELEBRATE 30 YEARS THERE IS NO MARKED CELEBRATION FOR IT LIKE 25 YRS - SILVER JUBILEE AND 50 YRS - GOLDN JUBILEE ... SO WE COULD JACHINT ANNIVERSARY ... THANKING GOD FOR HIS FAITHFULNESS ... KEEPING US ALL THIS YRS ... AND WE CELEBRATE HIM BECAUSE HIS FAITHFULNESS (a) UNMERITED (b) UNLIMITED ... so we believe at the end of this programme ... all of us will have a testimony ... (c) UN-REVIEWABLE(UN-REVOKABLE) (d) UN-CORRUPTIBLE ... CANT BE BOUGHT ANYWHERE AND IT IS NOT NIGERIAN OR AMERICAN ... ITS IS CELESTIAL ... NO WONDER HE KEPT QUEIT WHEN HE UNDERWENT HORRORS ... AND ONE OF THE CENTURIONS HAD TO SAY INDEED THIS IS THE SON OF GOD ... AND IF HE DIDNT PAY THAT PRICE WE WILL NOT EVEN BE TALKING ABOUT NMCF ... AND WE HAVE EXPERIENCED GOD'S FAITHFULNESS ... LIKE THE CONVERSION AND TESTIMONY OF PAUL'S ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS ... SO WE ARE ALWAYS READY TO SPEAK FOR HIM ... HENCE, FAITHFULNESS OF GOD TO MANKIND AND THE FELLOWSHIP IN PARTICULAR ... SO WE HAVE NOT JUST BEEN GIVEN AN EMPOWERMENT BUT ALSO EQUIPPED AND ENDORSED US FOR EXPLOITS FOR HIS KINGDOM ... SO IT ENLARGES THE KINGDOM ... SO THANK GOD THAT WE ARE APPROVED BECAUSE JESUS HAS PAID THE PRICE AND KNOWS US MAKING US HIS SHEEP HELPED AND GUIDED BY HIM ... EVERY POSTING IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO PLANT NEW UNITS ... LIKE RECENTLY DONE IN LOKOJA ... KANO ETC ... MUST STAND IN OUR ROLES AND COMMITMENT TO THE FELLOWSHIP ... ECTOMY IN MEDICAL TERMINOLOGIES MEANS CUT OFF AND THROW AWAY INTO THE WASTE BASKET ... SHOULD HAVE BEEN THROWN AWAY BUT JESUS HAS PAID THE PRICE AND KEEPS WOOING US TO EFFICIENCY AND PRODUCTIVITY ... NOT JUST CELEBRATING BUT ALSO TALKING ABOUT STEWARDSHIP ... THE ROLE GIVEN BY GOD FOR US TO PLAY ... EXAMPLE OF TABITHA, DORCAS ... WHO MADE CLOTHES FOR OTHER WOMEN ESP WIDOWS ... KEEPING THEM FROM THE STREETS SO THEY WOULD NOT BE TAKEN ADVANTAGED OF ... EVERYTHING WE DO NO MATTER HOW SMALL ... MATTERS ALOT AND COUNTS IN THE SALVATION OF ONE OR MORE PEOPLE ... TESTIMONY OF A PREACHING ENGAGEMENT I HAD IN KANO ... AND HAD TO TRAVEL TO YOLA THEN LAGOS BEFORE KANO ... ONLY FOR THE FLIGHT TO BE DIVERTED FROM YOLA TO KANO BECAUSE NO FUEL ANYWHERE ELSE TO HIS BENEFIT ... GOD IS GOOD ... SO WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE FAITHFUL ... LOYAL AND OUR RESPONSE TO GOD'S FAITHFULNESS - Joshua 1:1-8 and Hebrews 8:10 (1) God promising Joshua that He will be faithful to him and make him prosper and fulfil all that God had promised ... PROVIDED WE KEEP HIS WORD IN REMEMBRANCE ... (2) AND RESPOND TO (a) Love - this is what compelled God: John 3:16 ... and our response is to behave likewise John 13 ... (b) Obedience - Hebrews 5:7-8 ... JESUS OBEYED TO THE DEATH ... Likewise Paul was not disobedient to the Heavenly vision, so must we irrespective of the issues we face ... (c) Yieldedness - to surrender/submit LIKE JESUS DID ... AGAIN TO THE DEATH ... LIKEWISE, WE HAVE DIED TO OUR PREVIOUS AMBITIONS etc TO LIVE ONLY HIS LIFE OF OBEDIENCE ... (d) Approbation/Approval - Matthew 17 and John 3:3 ... (e) Lowliness/humility ... Philippians 2:5-11 ... WE GIVE YOU PRAISE FOR SALVATION ... RECEIVING HIS VERY LIFE THROUGH HAVING RECEIVED FORGIVENESS OF SINS BECAUSE OF THE SACRIFICE OF JESUS ... THANK YOU LORD FOR YOUR DEATH, BURIAL AND RESURRECTION ... PUTTING OUR NAMES IN YOUR BOOK OF LIFE AND ENABLING US TO ENJOY THE TOTALITY OF GOD'S FAITHFULNESS ... WE THANK YOU FOR THOSE SAVED THROUGH THIS MEETING AND WORDS SPOKEN ... WE THANK YOU FOR THE GRACE TO RECEIVE AND SERVE ... THANK YOU JESUS ... TESTIMONY - OF MISSING MISSIONARY DAUGHTER ... ONLY TO BE FOUND AND WRONGLY FRAMED AT THE POLICE STATION ... SO INVITED ... ONLY TO FIND THAT THE DPO WAS A SISTER HE HAD TAUGHT GOD'S WORD IN HER TRAINING ACADEMY ... SHE RECOGNISED HIM AND REMINDED HIM OF WHAT HE HAD TAUGHT - JESUS POLICE (Polite, Obedient, Loyal, Integrity, Compassionate and Enduring) OFFR ... WE GIVE YOU PRAISE LORD ...

AND WE HAVE IN OUR MIDST THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN HERE FOR THE LAST 30 YRS ... National President, (A) Air Cdr I Komo (rtd) and First National Pres - GOD MADE US HUMAN BEINGS AND NOT HUMAN DOINGS ... SO NMCF IS GOD'S PROJECT AND WE ONLY SURRENDERED ... A HUMAN BEING IN HIS PRESENCE ... AND HIS HOLY SPIRIT HELPED US TO HIS GLORY ...

AND IN OUR MIDST IS ALSO THE ASO ROCK CHAPLAIN WHO COUNSELLED HIM MANY YRS BEFORE MARRIAGE ... GOD INDEED HAS BEEN FAITHFUL TO US ... IN HEALTH, FINANCES, CAREER, MINISTRY ETC ... TESTIMONY OF ONE TIME ON AN INTERNATIONAL FLIGHT AND LOST AN ENGINE OVER THE ATLANTIC BUT KNEW GOD WOULD PRESERVE HIM AND HE DID ... ANOTHER TIME ... FLEW INTO VERY BAD WEATHER ... AND IT WAS GETTING BAD ... AND STARTED PRAYING IN TONGUES AND DECLARING HE WILL NOR DIE ... THEN GOD INTERVENED ... THANK YOU LORD ... (I) Dr Mokelu - ... MEMBERS WERE MOLESTED SEVERALLY ... BUT THEY ENDURED AND PRAYING FOR ABOUT 3 YRS UNTIL THE COMMANDER HIMSELF RECEIVED JESUS ... AUTHORISED THE FELLOWSHIP ON THE BASE AND BUILT A CHURCH ... GOD WAS AND IS STILL FAITHFUL ... Air Cdr CT Dii - ... PRAISE THE LORD ... SO IT IS GOOD THAT WE HAVE HEARD FROM THIS PEOPLE ... RECOGNISE THE ASSEMBLIES OF GOD MINISTRY ... AGAIN IF WE LOOK AROUND AND SEE LIKE IN THIS CHURCH WAS NOT ALLOWED TO MEET IN THE 80s and 90s ... WHEN IT WAS A TABOO TO SING AND DANCE ... FELLOWSHIP WAS THE ONE TRAINING MINSTRELS AND ALL ... TALKING ABOUT SACRIFICE ... LIKE PILATE WHO DECLARED THAT JESUS WAS INNOCENT BUT YET DIDNT RELEASE HIM ... WHY? IT WAS GOD's WILL FOR JESUS TO PASS THROUGH ALL HE DID ... WE THEREFORE KNOW AND STAND IN GOD'S WILL FOR US ... STANDING IN LOYALY AND GOD'S FAITHFULNESS ... CONTRIBUTING OUR OWN PART ... LIKE PAUL ... LET NO MAN TROUBLE ME BECAUSE WE BEAR THE MARKS OF CHRIST ... WE SUBMIT TO GOD's WILL ... AGAIN OUR SISTERS ARE GOOD ... SO YOUNG MEN STOP LOOKING OUTSIDE AND START LOOKING INWARDS ...

HALLELUJAH MC: ... HALLELUJAH ... A LITTLE ALTERATION IN THE PROGRAMME ... 8. TALK 2 (Ven Obi Onwunzuruba): INTROS BY NAT PRES ... I SWEAT BEFORE THE LORD IN DANCING SO I WONT BE TOO HOT FOR THE DEVIL ... WE HAVE NO LIFELINES EXCEPT JESUS ... SO WE CELEBRATE HIM ... THE SPEAKER IS THE CHAPLAIN ASO ROCK CHAPEL AND THE PRES'S CHAPLAIN AND IRRESPECTIVE OF THE ISSUES AROUND HE OPTED TO HONOUR OUR INVITATION ... FLEW IN THIS MORNING AND GOING BACK THIS AFTERNOON ... SO THE ALTERATION IS IN ORDER ... (A) I SHOULD START WITH AN EXPRESSION OF GRATITUDE ... FOR NMCF FOUNDING HIM WORTHY TO CELEBRATE WITH YOU ... AND WE REJOICE AND DANCE ... THOUGH WE HAVE DIFFERENT PERSONALITIES ... GOOD TO RELAX IN THE HANDS OF GOD SO HE CAN WORK IN US AS HE SHOULD ... (B) IN BEING PART OF THE FELLOWSHIP ... ASSOCIATED SINCE THE EARLY 80s IN KANO ... ASKING WHERE OTHER SENIOR BRETHREN WHERE ... SO I AM PART OF THE FELLOWSHIP ... REGISTERED OR NOT ... I AM AUTOMATICALLY A MEMBER AND IDENTIFY WITH YOUR JOY FOR WHAT GOD HAS DONE FOR U, THROUGH U AND FOR HIS GLORY ... AND TRUELY WHEN GOD HAS DONE THINGS FOR U ALL YOUR UPTIGHTNESS ... FIZZLES AWAY LIKE DAVID WHO FORGOT HE WAS A KING AND DANCED ... I WANT TO THANK GOD FOR ALL THE GREAT THINGS GOD IS DOING IN OUR LIVES EVEN AS I CELEBRATE OLDER PERSONS IN OUR MIDST WHO HAVE BEEN FAITHFUL ALL THESE YEARS ... ANNIVERSARIES -are for Celebrations, Thanksgiving, Stocktaking and Planning ahead... NOT A FORMAL PERSON WHO MUST PRAY BEFORE A MESSAGE ALREADY IN THE SPIRIT ... SO ALL OF US WERE CONCEIVED ... GREW UP WITH SIBLINGS AND SO THANK GOD FOR GROWTH ... AND THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN OF HELP ALONG THE YEARS ... SO AS WE CELEBRATE THIS ANNIVERSARY ... TIME TO REJOICE AND BE PRAYED FOR ... AGAIN JUST TO ADD ANOTHER FLAVOUR ... (C) SO LETS TAKE STOCK - (1) WE MUST DO BETTER THAN OUR PREDECESSORS ... SO WE WILL DO BETTER AND GET MORE RESULTS ... (2) GOT BORN AGAIN IN 1973 ... THROUGH THE WITNESS OF SOME SCRIPTURE UNION BRETHREN ... AND BECAME A RELIGION-RASCAL ... THINKING IT WAS A THING PEOPLE DO TO SCARE THEM ... AGAIN HEARD THAT RELIGION WAS AN OPIUM OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP THEM IN CHECK ... FOLLOWED ALL RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES THAT DIDNT GIVE LIFE ... (3) TILL HE MET CHRIST ... AND EVERY WRONG DESIRE DIED BECAUSE THE WORK OF SALVATION IS TOTAL AND COMPLETE AND A PERSONAL ENCOUNTER ... WITH THE LORD JESUS ... WITH THE HEART MOUTH BELIEVES AND WITH THE MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE UNTO SALVATION ... (4) IF U DONT CONFESS IT U DONT HAVE IT ... TESTIFYING OF WHAT JESUS HAS DONE DAILY AND TO ALL ... OLD THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY AND ALL THINGS HAVE BECOME NEW ... SO WE GROW CONSTANTLY AS WE FELLOWSHIP BY READING GOD's WORD AND PRAYING IN THE HOLY GHOST ... RENEWING OUR MINDS ... BECAUSE JESUS HAS SET US FREE AND WE CANT BE BOUND ... SO CONTINUE TO BELIEVE AND CONFESS ... BECAUSE JESUS SETS FREE ... AND WE HAVE BEEN SET FREE ... SITTED WITH HIM HIGH AND ABOVE PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS ... WE ARE FREE AND FREE INDEED ... (D) HAVING ENJOYED 30 YRS OF GOD'S FAITHFULNESS .... I BELIEVE U ARE MATURE BECAUSE A 30 YR OLD MAN IS NO MORE A SMALL BOY ... UNFORTUNATELY, A LOT OF NOISE IN CHURCH RATHER WHAT WE CAN PASS TO THE NEXT GENERATION ... MEANWHILE MUSIC IS NOT REALLY ABOUT THE BEAT BUT ABOUT THE WORDS ... AGAIN IS IT FOR HOW LONG OR HOW WELL ... HENCE, TEACHING PEOLE TO DENY THEMSELVES, PICK UP THE CROSS AND FOLLOW JESUS - SHOWING FORTH IS LIFE ... SO WE NEED FAT CHRISTIANS (1) Faithful men and women - example of Timothy: PEOPLE ARE VERY RELIGIOUS BUT LITTLE RIGHTEOUSNESS ...Luke 18:1-8 ...FULL OF FAITH IN RELATION TO GOD ... MEANING I CAN TRUST GOD FOR WHO IS, WHAT HE SAYS AND WHAT HE CAN DO ... TILL WE LEAVE THIS SIDE OF ETERNITY ... NOT CHANGING OUR TESTIMONIES NO MATTER WHAT ... HAVING TRIBULATIONS BUT HAVING THE PEACE OF GOD THAT ENDURES ... FAITHFULNESS TO OUR PARTNERS - BECAUSE OUR BODIES ARE TEMPLES OF THE LIVING GOD AND SO STAY IN THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF WHAT GOD HAS FINISHED ... FLEEING FORNICATION AND ALL YOUTHFUL LUSTS ... MUST WATCH AND PRAY ... IT IS REQUIRED OF STEWARDS TO BE FAITHFUL ... EXPLOITING THE GIFTS GOD HAS GIVEN US TO OUR AND KINGDOM BENEFITS ... SO NEED TO PRODUCE FAITHFUL MEMBERS BECAUSE THE LEADERS HAVE KEPT THE FAITH ... PEOPLE WHO ARE MENTORS IN WORD AND DEED ... (2) Available people ... U CAN BE AROUND BUT NOT AVAILABLE ... NOT DISPOSED OR IN THE RIGHT DISPOSITION TO ACT OR SERVE ...WE HAVE BEEN PERFECTED, RIGHTEOUS, HOLY ETC IN CHRIST, HOWEVER MUST NEED TO SUBMIT TO THE HOLY GHOST GROWING IN GRACE ...AND LEARNING UNDER OTHERS GOD HAS LED YOUR WAY ... AND WHEN GOD CALLS US ... HE GIVES US ALL THE RESOURCES REQUIRED ... SHEPHERDS NOT JUST EATING FROM THE SHEEP BUT ALSO EATING THE SHEEP AS WELL ... NOT AFTER CHRIST ... ME I NO GO SUFFER, I NO GO BEG FOR BREAD ... BECAUSE JESUS HAS PAID THE PRICE ...THROUGH FAITH AND PATIENCE ... WE OBTAIN ALL OF GOD's PROMISES ... SO I GLORY IN TRIBULATIONS ...THANK GOD FOR TECHNOLOGY ... WE PARTAKE IN CHRIST SUFFERING BY RECEIVING WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR US AND THE CHURCH IS THE BODY OF JESUS ... (BECAUSE WE WILL SUFFER PERSECUTION ... INSULTS FROM PEOPLE, DENIAL OF SOME THINGS, PHYSICAL ASSAULTS ETC ... BUT WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS ... TESTIMONY OF HIS SELECTION TO DO NYSC AT NASAWARA STATE AGAINST HIS CHOICE OF LAGOS ... BUT NOW REJOICE BECAUSE LOOK BACK AT THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN BLESSED BY GOD'S DECISION - MARRIED HIS WIFE FROM THERE AND OTHER SO MANY BENEFITS OF MEETING GREAT PEOPLE TODAY AND OF COURSE THE PRODUCTS OF THE LIVES TOUCHED ... GOD IS OUR REWARD ... MY PLACE IS TO LIVE OUT AND SHOWCASE CHRIST ... JOURNEY WITH GOD AND INTO THE MINISTRY ... AND NO MATTER HE WENT THROUGH ... GOD SAID I AM YOUR REWARD JUST LIKE ABRAHAM ... NO MATTER HOW REJECTED I AM ... GOD TAKES US AND LIFTS US UP ... BECAUSE WE ARE UNIQUE ... AND SO WE KEEP LOOKING UNTO JESUS WHO REMAINS THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR FAITH ... THEN COMMISSIONED TO BRING PEACE TO PEOPLE's HOMES ... TO ENJOY LIFE/HEAVEN ON EARTH BY TEACHING COUPLES TO FORGIVE THEMSELVES IRRESPECTIVE OF ALL AND WE MAKE OURSELVES AVAILABLE WE CONTINUE TO SEE HIS GLORY, ENJOY NEEDS MET ETC TESTIMONY OF HOW HE GOT TO BE PRES'S CHAPLAIN ... JUST KEEP WALKING WITH GOD AND HE ELEVATES THROUGH HIS OWN CONNECTIONS AND ARRANGEMENTS- TESTIMONY OF JUST HUMBLE OBEDIENCE TO GOD'S LEADING - SUMMARY A MAN THAT GOD HAS HELPED ... MAY GOD REWARD YOU FOR YOUR FAITHFULNESS ... (3) Teachable ... NEED TO SUBMIT TO THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE WORD OF GRACE AND TRUSTED PEOPLE WITH THE GOSPEL ... EXAMPLE OF DAVID ... AFTER BEING CONFRONTED BY PROPHET NATHAN ABOUT HIS MISBEHAVIOUR ... ADMITTED IT AND REPENTED ... DONT RIDE HIGH HORSES ... LET US CONTINUE TO SUBMIT TO ONE ANOTHER ... ACCEPTING WHAT JESUS HAS DONE FOR US AND IN US ... BEING MEN AFTER GOD's HEART ... ACKNOWLEDGING THAT GOD IS OUR SUFFICIENCY ... AND LIKE MOSES BEING FAITHFUL IN ALL THAT PERTAINED TO THE TEMPLE AND LIKE JESUS FAITHFUL TO THE CROSS ... THANK YOU LORD ... PRAYERS - I RECEIVE YOUR FAITHFULNESS ... I STAND AVAILABLE TO YOU ... BECAUSE YOU ARE THE ONE WHO BEGAN A GOOD WORK IN ME AND I TRUST YOU TO COMPLETE IT ... KNOWING YOU WORK IN ME TO WILL AND DO ... AND SO I AM TEACHABLE BEFORE YOU ... ACCEPTING THAT I AM YOUR SANCTUARY WHERE YOU LIVE - PURE, HOLY, TRIED, TESTED AND TRUE ... THANK YOU LORD FOR THE SACRIFICE OF JESUS ON THE CROSS ... WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR WORK IN OUR LIVES ... THANK YOU FOR THE FELLOWSHIP KNOWING THAT AS WE CONTINUE TO BE SALT, LIGHT AND SANCTUARIES THAT WILL GIVE YOU PRAISE AND GLORY ... TO THE SALVATION OF THOSE AROUND US ... THANK YOU LORD BECAUSE WE ARE EXACT REPLICAS OF WHO YOU ARE ... YOU WILL DO MUCH MORE THAN WE HAVE ASKED ... MC: PRAYER FOR THE SPEAKER ... AMEN ...

JOINED THE NAVY IN 1990 AS A CHRISTIAN AND EVERYONE WAS WORRIED THAT HE WAS LOST BECAUSE THEY FELT THERE COULD BE NO CHRISTIAN IN THE MILITARY ... HOW WRONG WERE THEY, BECAUSE HE JOINED THE NMCF AND ITS BEEN A GREAT FAMILY ... SO ARE YOU EXCITED ... FATHER YOU ARE EXALTED IN THIS FAMILY AND WE THANK GOD FOR THE NMCF ... GLAD FOR SENIOR BRETHREN WHO MADE LIFE EASY FOR US IN THE NAVY ... AND WHEN PERSECUTIONS CAME ... THEY STOOD IN DEFENSE OF THE BRETHREN ... WE GIVE GOD PRAISE ... SO CALLED TO LEAD THE DISCUSSION ON 'THE JOURNEY SO FAR' - HISTORY OF THE NMCF ... INITIALLY ONLY ARMED FORCES, THEN POLICE JOINED ... THEREAFTER, PARAMILITARY SERVICES JOINED AND LATER BECAUSE IT IS NIGERIAN MCF ... NON UNIFORMED PEOPLE COULD JOIN AS LONG AS THEY SUPPORTED THE CAUSE OF CHRISTIANS IN UNIFORM ... (1) WHERE ARE THE BRETHREN WITH WHOM WE STARTED THE RACE ... Genesis 4:9 ... ALL OVER THE COUNTRY ... BUT WITH SOCIAL MEDIA TODAY WE CAN REACH THEM ... THEY ARE NOT DEAD OR LOST ... BUT IN OTHER FIELDS NOURISHING SOULS ... NEED TO HAVE A DETAILED DATA BANK AND CONTACT LIST (SECRETARIAT) (2) WHERE HAVE WE COME FROM? CONVENTIONS USED TO BE A GREAT TIME OF FELLOWSHIP BECAUSE WE WERE ALWAYS CHARGED UP ... AND ENCOURAGED OURSELVES TO THE POINT THAT WHEN WE WANT TO PART ... IT WAS IN TEARS ...

FORGOT EVERYTHING EARTHLY AND OUTSIDE OF CHRIST ... LOVE DISPLAYED DAILY ... AND EVEN WITHOUT EVANGELISM ... THE LOVE WE HAD FOR OURSELVES RADIATED AND ADDED PEOPLE TO US LIKE THE FIRST CHURCH ... CAN THAT BE SAID OF THE NMCF TODAY ... (3) ... WELFARE OF A BROTHER WAS EVERYBODY'S CONCERN ... LIKE THE EARLY CHURCH ... HAD ALL THINGS IN COMMON ...

BUT THANK GOD, HE HAS MADE A WAY FOR US FOR HE WHO THE SON HAS SET FREE IS FREE INDEED ... (2) But the time came when JESUS took control of the ass and everything changed for it ... We might be going through trying times in Nigeria ... But God has delivered us and whatever will challenge our freedom ... GOD HIMSELF HAS RAISED A STANDARD AGAINT THEM ... (3) JESUS has laid His life as a ransom ... However, some people are still not working in the fullness of God for their lives ... Because under one influence or the other DUE IGNORANCE ... NONETHELESS, JESUS DELIVERED THE ASS ... AND HAS DELIVERED US ... (4) Again the ass lived closed to Jerusalem but never entered the city ... Living around or working where there is abundance but not partaking of it ... FROM TODAY WE ENJOY ALL THAT JESUS HAS PAID FOR BECAUSE JESUS DEATH, BURIAL AND RESURRECTION WAS NOT IN VAIN BUT FOR US ... (5) Lastly, understand that because God is on our case, WE MUST BE BEAUTIFIED, BLESSED AND LIFTED UP ...

in found that there are more agents than can be counted! The hotels are being filled with Federal Agents, Rangers and FBI arriving in unmarked vehicles. Most of the vehicles are white, some are black. They are being parked in secure areas and are under lock and key and some are in back parking as well. So no one can nosing around. Never mind those who may be flying in. They're obviously building up for something. Three guesses what they could be up to. More Patriots are needed out there. Rotation is indeed in place. The Patriots who are there need all the help they can get in every way possible. It's still very serious out there. Las Vegas is 80 miles away from the Bundy property. So maybe an hour a half away. NOT FAR!! If you're planning to answer to the call, gear up and bring food. They're running a little low right now and Pray, Pray, Pray. Please share this one like mad!!!

Couple Married 70 Years Die 15 Hours Apart: A couple who held hands at breakfast every morning even after 70 years of marriage have died 15 hours apart. Helen Felumlee, of Nashport, died at 92 on April 12. Her husband, 91-year-old Kenneth Felumlee, Read more ...
died the next morning. The couple's eight children say the two had been inseparable since meeting as teenagers, once sharing the bottom of a bunk bed on a ferry rather than sleeping one night apart, the Zanesville Times Recorder reported (http://ohne.ws/1in7erG). They remained deeply in love until the very end, even eating breakfast together while holding hands, said their daughter, Linda Cody. "We knew when one went, the other was going to go," she said. According to Cody, about 12 hours after Helen died, Kenneth looked at his children and said, "Mom's dead." He quickly began to fade and was surrounded by 24 of his closest family members and friends when he died the next morning. "He was ready," Cody said. "He just didn't want to leave her here by herself." The pair had known each other for several years when they eloped in Newport, Ky., across the Ohio River from Cincinnati, on Feb. 20, 1944. At two days shy of his 21st birthday, Kenneth was too young to marry in Ohio. "He couldn't wait," son Jim Felumlee said. Kenneth worked as a railroad car inspector and mechanic before becoming a mail carrier for the Nashport Post Office. He was active in his Nashport-Irville United Methodist Church as a Sunday school teacher. Helen stayed at home, not only cooking and cleaning for her own family but also for other families in need in the area. She taught Sunday school, too, but was known more for her greeting card ministry, sending cards for birthdays, sympathy and the holidays to everyone in her community, each with a personal note inside. "She kept Hallmark in business," daughter-in-law Debbie Felumlee joked. When Kenneth retired in 1983 and the children began to leave the house, the Felumlees began to explore their love of travel, visiting almost all 50 states by bus. "He didn't want to fly anywhere because you couldn't see anything as you were going," Jim Felumlee said. Although both experienced declining health in recent years, Cody said, each tried to stay strong for the other. "That's what kept them going," she said. Read More VIA ABC News http://ow.ly/vXrmH

Rose Tang Just in: The Chinese government has admitted the refugees involved in a deadly clash with Vietnamese border guards on Friday are from Xinjiang (East Turkestan) and did not mention anything about them grabbing guns from Vietnamese police. Vietnamese Read more ...
state media report five civilians and two Vietnamese officers were killed, four were injured, after the detainees snatched guns from Vietnamese police. The death toll from China is only one. A document from the Fangchenggang city government dated April 18 says the gunfight happened around 1:10pm in the Vietnamese border gate of Ba Phong Sinh in Vienam's Hải Hà City in Quang Ninh province bordering China’s Guangxi province. “Local villagers say Vietnamese police were escorting a group of Xinjiang people (about 16 of them, including four women, two children) towards Bắc Phong Sinh. They went to the third floor of the Vietnamese border patrol office building to have a rest, ready to hand them over to China. Xinjiang people had a scuffle with Vietnamese police who then shot Xinjiang people. One Xinjiang person died. Others have dispersed. Three Vietnamese were injured.” The one-page document, with the heading “Information of Political Tasks in Fangcheng District, Fangchenggang City” and issued by Chen Mansheng, was posted on weibo and circulated on Twitter. It states the Fangcheng district government deployed police immediately to the site in Vietnam to deal with the case. “Armed police, the military and Tansan Police Precinct all sent members to control the border gate of Lihuo.” See below a photo of the document, the other two photos of the refugees are from Vietnamese media. Vietnam's state-owned newspaper Thahn Nien reports China alerted Vietnam of the border crossing Friday: "According to the Vietnamese Border guard, they were informed by Chinese colleagues at 5:30 a.m. this morning that a group of Chinese nationals was attempting to enter Vietnam illegally." http://www.thanhniennews.com/society/illegal-chinese-migrants-kill-vietnamese-policeman-in-shooting-attack-25480.html VTV1 TV News phone interview with the head of Quang Ninh border about the refugees (Thanks Thien-Huong Carabella for sharing/translating): 2 were shot (dead), 3 jumped off the building and committed suicide, 4 injured. From Vietnam side: 2 were shot, among the injured (didn't tell figure) there were 4 officers. Bac Phong Sinh border gate was closed until Saturday morning. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKBXr3dqL54 Meanwhile, on Friday night, Vietnamese authorities in Tra Co of the Quang Ninh province arrested 21 people who arrived by boat from China. Vietnamese media reported the group may be linked to the 16 people who crossed the border in Bắc Phong Sinh that morning. But there haven't been any reports saying they're from Xinjiang.

PLEASE READ NASHPORT, Ohio (AP) — A couple who held hands at breakfast every morning even after 70 years of marriage have died 15 hours apart. Helen Felumlee, of Nashport, died at 92 on April 12. Her husband, 91-year-old Kenneth Felumlee, died the next morning.

He quickly began to fade and was surrounded by 24 of his closest family members and friends when he died the next morning. "He was ready," Cody said. "He just didn't want to leave her here by herself." Son Dick Felumlee said his parents died of old age, surrounded by family. "At Dad's bed we were singing his favorite hymns, reading scriptures and praying with him," he told The Associated Press in an email. "It was a going away party, and we know he loved it." The pair had known each other for several years when they eloped in Newport, Ky., across the Ohio River from Cincinnati, on Feb. 20, 1944. At two days shy of his 21st birthday, Kenneth — who went by Kenny — was too young to marry in Ohio. He couldn't wait," son Jim Felumlee said.View Kenneth worked as a railroad car inspector and mechanic before becoming a mail carrier for the Nashport Post Office.

IIITN Insight #234 Continuation to the confession #226. Prerequisites : #218 n #226. #13 Internet in our institute. May be it was the slowest n dumbest ever. It really sucks. (Cheers guys we have used it to the full extent possible) #Note : Thanks to the in Read more ...
ventor of TOR. It helped us many a times. #14 Next thing is about outings don't know how many are sick of standing in front of PRO to tell some fake reasons to just get out of the campus. But it was a bad experience for many. It is difficult to stay in campus always. #Note : We have our own ways to tackle it. Sorry girls you are helpless in this regard. #15 Next thing is zimbra. It was the fast and free communication platform in IIITN that was stopped. You can mail anyone n everyone.I think many of the relationship statuses might be just SINGLE without the support of Zimbra. #Note: I thank Zimbra on behalf of all of its benificiaries. #16 Cygnus was the most populated festival in IIITN it was real fun. Life at RGUKT was different before and after it. #Note: I wish it might be conducted twice in a year. #17 Next is about hang out n meeting spots. There are half a dozen of them. Bank,post office, canteen, Jun. Campus , hospital, Round about at Entrance. Plenty of us have memories linked with those places. #18 Cricket is One way of enjoyment (Playing,watching n spectating). We have our own grounds which are busy like 4 lane junctions. It is pretty interesting to see plenty of matches in a single place.Most of the boys play cricket . India won World cup n champions trophy when we are here of course T20 world cup was missed. # Note : All broken windows may Rest in peace. # Note : Our DPL is most viewed sport event in IÍITN. # Note : Sachin retired when we were here. Its great to watch cricket along with hundreds of die hard cricket fans.I am Lucky enough to be here. Will continue in next post. Share ur moments n experiences in comments. # # Anil-E4 Civil # #

Dewayne Webb Sunday 20 April Farewell Speech (rough outline): Wow. The singles held a farewell for me, now CCSC. I wrote speeches for generals and ambassadors, but one, two, three or four stars has nothing on my church family. You might ask who writes farewell s Read more ...
peech notes on their last Sunday in church when they finally get to say something. I wouldn't be a good public affairs Officer if I didn't write a speech. *Pastor, co-pastor thanks pops/ma *TY to the ministers, not easy *TY everyone using gifts--notes void *TY singles for being examples *TY Woods, Freemans, pastor, Lawer, Owens, Simms -- me family looks like, God's definition.. showing us, the singles *hear that CCSC is a hospital, to me, it is a gas station *CCSC, you are My family *I want to publicly thank God for many blessings have been bestowed on me-20 months in Korea, 8 in Yongsan- my business, (KIAB, LLC), boomed; professional military career has excelled, favored my family/personal life. Hold closest: CCSC Family. Few ppl want to personally recognize for impacting my 8 months here at CCSC: *pastor, co-pastor: role model *khia: don't know -BFF, puts up w/me for close to 2 yrs, recently started attending CCSC w/ her beautiful daughter & drive Dongducheon to Seoul get fed at CCSC, pastor - work; *SFC Collins-my PSG/Pulliam-my Human resources expert: top notch NCOs, took care of me food, fixing my military recs (btw coming to see you next week), or putting that NCO boot in my behind (like every officer needs), you have been there for me & I thank u *every church, has that one person that can say what want to say, tell it like it is and set the absolute standard in the church. As a matter of fact, we are matching today. I'm talking about Mother Bowe who is wearing that hat, I love you & U have had a profound everlasting impact on my life... See you in MD *choir & mime: continue ministering to souls *multimedia team: realize importance, messages I receive over the globe; I again ask that someone take up the role of working w/multimedia to post pics of CCSC events, updates as well as notes regularly *singles: continue to hold ea other accountable. I've learned so much from the steadfast efforts of singles in this church to set the example. *Min Walker: not an easy task to be a WOG & lead singles in a military community. A Shining example of a 365/24/7 WOG -- you are and don't throw accolades lightly. *men: jacks, Lawer, Albert, Jamal, Aaron, Simms, Derek and last but not least NC's finest/Mr. All About Fitness Bro Freeman. I know you recently had to retire Grace, his beloved car a few weeks ago. You all have been a blessing & example to me. In conclusion, CCSC Family, I urge you to not just eat spiritual food once a week, on Sundays. I urge you to treat the things of God like a priority like you do the source of your paycheck. If we went to work once a week, how much of a blessing would that once-a-week paycheck be. Get up out your warm seats and serve the ministry. Continue to give to Haiti even after I'm gone and put a roof on their sanctuary. Lastly, Min Lawer has been teaching on the 7 motivational gifts. Identify and walk in your ministering role here in CCSC. A Quick praise report: God has definitely blessed me with the giving gift to finance His kingdom monetarily. This past year along, God has favored KIAB, through real estate and All About Fitness profits along with contributions from others, to send thousands of dollars to support Haiti, Khia's sister/brother-in-law's recent Uganda trip, Liberia (where my brother Dr. Webb is now on medical missions) and most recently Pastor Wade's Ministry to the Military Sandhills Worship Ctr near Fayetteville, NC. Min Walker doesn't know it yet but KIAB, in part, will help offset expenses of her upcoming trip to Uganda this summer. My last two giving acts for my CCSC family is pushing today's resurrection msg across social media (so connect with the church pages and share messages w/your friends) AND renaming my car, the new grace to give it free of charge, to the Freeman family. CCSC thanks!!!

According to Cody, about 12 hours after Helen died, Kenneth looked at his children and said, "Mom's dead." He quickly began to fade and was surrounded by 24 of his closest family members and friends when he died the next morning. "He was ready," Cody said.

Couple Married 70 Years Die 15 Hours Apart: A couple who held hands at breakfast every morning even after 70 years of marriage have died 15 hours apart. Helen Felumlee, of Nashport, died at 92 on April 12. Her husband, 91-year-old Kenneth Felumlee, Read more ...
died the next morning. The couple's eight children say the two had been inseparable since meeting as teenagers, once sharing the bottom of a bunk bed on a ferry rather than sleeping one night apart, the Zanesville Times Recorder reported (http://ohne.ws/1in7erG). They remained deeply in love until the very end, even eating breakfast together while holding hands, said their daughter, Linda Cody. "We knew when one went, the other was going to go," she said. According to Cody, about 12 hours after Helen died, Kenneth looked at his children and said, "Mom's dead." He quickly began to fade and was surrounded by 24 of his closest family members and friends when he died the next morning. "He was ready," Cody said. "He just didn't want to leave her here by herself." The pair had known each other for several years when they eloped in Newport, Ky., across the Ohio River from Cincinnati, on Feb. 20, 1944. At two days shy of his 21st birthday, Kenneth was too young to marry in Ohio. "He couldn't wait," son Jim Felumlee said. Kenneth worked as a railroad car inspector and mechanic before becoming a mail carrier for the Nashport Post Office. He was active in his Nashport-Irville United Methodist Church as a Sunday school teacher. Helen stayed at home, not only cooking and cleaning for her own family but also for other families in need in the area. She taught Sunday school, too, but was known more for her greeting card ministry, sending cards for birthdays, sympathy and the holidays to everyone in her community, each with a personal note inside. "She kept Hallmark in business," daughter-in-law Debbie Felumlee joked. When Kenneth retired in 1983 and the children began to leave the house, the Felumlees began to explore their love of travel, visiting almost all 50 states by bus.

Uday Singh For all of the JD(U) government’s tall claims of having implemented key provisions of the Sachar committee report, Muslim households in Seemanchal region of Bihar continue to languish at the bottom. As per a survey conducted by the Purnia Lok Sabh Read more ...
a Vikas Parishad , out of the Muslim households in Seemanchal region of Bihar: 71% earn less than Rs 5000 per month 95% don’t have access to toilets 80% live in kachcha housing 84%’s primary source of livelihood is through casual labour 92% don’t have access to electricity 78% don’t have access to banking/post office accounts What ‘secularism’ does the JD(U) government boast of when it cannot even ensure the most basic of facilities for weaker sections of society? Why hasn’t the JD(U) government not linked muslim households to credit, set up training programs in animal husbandry, or helped them with better market linkages for their artisan produce? The JD(U) regime cannot even ensure proper utilization of funds under the Multi Sector Development Program (MSDP) for development of public infrastructure in districts with significant minority populations. I lobbied hard to make sure that Purnia gets its share of funds under MSDP but alas, implementation on the ground of projects remains shoddy – Less than 2% of muslim households perceive any improvement with respect to electrification, setting up of Anganwadi kendras, health centers, sanitation in their localities. Less than 2% of muslim households feel they have benefitted from vocational training and self-employment programs, or scholarships.

ute to Concord. Their goal? They wanted to seize the weapons and supplies that Americans had stored at Concord, Massachusetts. In the early morning hours of April 19, the British troops ran into about 70 American minutemen on Lexington Green. These men were led by Captain John Parker, a veteran of the French and Indian War. As the British approached, the Americans stood firm. But then someone heard a British officer shout: “Lay down your arms, you damned rebels!” Others heard similar variations of the same comment: “Throw down your arms, ye villains, ye rebels” or “Ye villains, ye rebels, disperse, damn you, disperse!” In the meantime, Parker later testified that he “immediately ordered our militia to disperse and not to fire.” Most of the men began to disperse, as ordered, but some never heard the order. And NONE of the Americans put down their arms. No one really knows who fired the first shot that followed . . . the “shot heard round the world”! Some British officers were certain that it was a provincial hidden behind a hedge. Others thought the shot came from a nearby tavern. Some of the militia at Lexington were certain that British officers fired at them. Regardless, the first shot WAS fired. The British began firing at Americans, leaving almost two dozen Americans killed or wounded. Some Americans returned fire, but only one British soldier was mildly wounded. The British troops continued toward Concord. They searched for weapons without finding anything of note. Potentially, the British could have simply returned to Boston at that point but for one thing: A fire broke out. The source of that fire is unknown, but the American militia thought that the British were burning down buildings. They ran for North Bridge and a brief skirmish ensured, leaving 3 British and 2 Americans dead. The British began their retreat toward Boston. Americans fired upon British soldiers the entire way back to Boston, where they cornered them in the city. In all, nearly 300 British soldiers were killed or wounded during the retreat. By contrast, Americans lost less than 100. The Library of Congress summarizes: “By the end of the day, the colonists were singing "Yankee Doodle" and the American Revolution had begun.” -------------- If you enjoyed this post, please don't forget to “like” and SHARE.

Obuyu Foe Budalang'i There was a man who worked for the Post Office whose job it was to process all the mail that had illegible addresses. One day, a letter came addressed in a shaky handwriting to God. He thought he should open it to see what it was about. The letter re Read more ...
ad: Dear God, I am an 83 year old widow, living on a very small pension. Yesterday someone stole my purse. It had ksh500 in it, which was all the money I had until my next pension check. Next Sunday is Easter and I had invited two of my friends over for dinner. Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with. I have no family to turn to, and you are my only hope. Can you please help me? Sincerely, Edna The postal worker was touched. He showed the letter to all the other workers. Each one dug into his or her wallet and came up with a few dollars. By the time he made the rounds, he had collected ksh400 which they put into an envelope and sent to the woman. The rest of the day, all the workers felt a warm glow thinking of Edna and the dinner she would be able to share with her friends. Christmas came and went. A few days later, another letter came from the old lady to God. All the workers gathered around while the letter was opened. It read: Dear God, How can I ever thank you enough for what you did for me? Because of your gift of love, I was able to fix a glorious dinner for my friends. We had a very nice day and I told my friends of your wonderful gift. By the way, there was ksh100 missing. I think it must have been those thieving bastards at the Post Office.

Donald Dean UPDATE ON THE BUNDY RANCH STANDOFF IN NEVADA! In an email from William, aka 'Billy' Date: Sat, Apr 19, 2014 at 2:12 PM Subject: Update from NV I know Sue and Jerry personally. I know some of the others who are out there too. This information se Read more ...
ems very credible to me. I have no doubt that both Sue and Jerry are sincere in what they are saying. I also believe that whoever went to LV to view things personally is telling the truth. No idea about what this LEO is about, no idea if the fact of what is being seen is unusual. My take is that the info is good, and what is going on in LV is not usual. Seems consistent with imminent action of some type by the Federal Government. Billy Hi Everyone, Apparently some people are having trouble viewing my Facebook page and one person suggested that Facebook may be trying to block my site. Is anyone familiar with this happening and what I can do about it? In the meantime I need you to post and share this update for me so people will know what's going on UPDATE!!! I'm talking with Jerry right now. (At about 10:30 EST) He said that a Law Enforcement Officer told him last night that Federal agents are being moved into Las Vegas. The Officer claimed that there were about 140 agents in the city. Recon sent in by Jerry found that there are more agents than can be counted! The hotels are being filled with Federal Agents, Rangers and FBI arriving in unmarked vehicles. Most of the vehicles are white, some are black. They are being parked in secure areas and are under lock and key and some are in back parking as well. So no one can nosing around. Never mind those who may be flying in. They're obviously building up for something. Three guesses what they could be up to. More Patriots are needed out there. Rotation is indeed in place. The Patriots who are there need all the help they can get in every way possible. It's still very serious out there. Las Vegas is 80 miles away from the Bundy property. So maybe an hour a half away. NOT FAR!! If you're planning to answer to the call, gear up and bring food. They're running a little low right now and Pray, Pray, Pray. Please share this one like mad!!! Yours Truly, Sue D.

"He just didn't want to leave her here by herself." The pair had known each other for several years when they eloped in Newport, Ky., across the Ohio River from Cincinnati, on Feb. 20, 1944. At two days shy of his 21st birthday, Kenneth was too young to marry in Ohio. "He couldn't wait," son Jim Felumlee said. Kenneth worked as a railroad car inspector and mechanic before becoming a mail carrier for the Nashport Post Office. He was active in his Nashport-Irville United Methodist Church as a Sunday school teacher. Helen stayed at home, not only cooking and cleaning for her own family but also for other families in need in the area. She taught Sunday school, too, but was known more for her greeting card ministry, sending cards for birthdays, sympathy and the holidays to everyone in her community, each with a personal note inside. "She kept Hallmark in business," daughter-in-law Debbie Felumlee joked. When Kenneth retired in 1983 and the children began to leave the house, the Felumlees began to explore their love of travel, visiting almost all 50 states by bus. "He didn't want to fly anywhere because you couldn't see anything as you were going," Jim Felumlee said. Although both experienced declining health in recent years, Cody said, each tried to stay strong for the other. "That's what kept them going," she said.

state media report five civilians and two Vietnamese officers were killed, four were injured, after the detainees snatched guns from Vietnamese police. The death toll from China is only one. A document from the Fangchenggang city government dated April 18 says the gunfight happened around 1:10pm in the Vietnamese border gate of Ba Phong Sinh in Vienam's Hải Hà City in Quang Ninh province bordering China’s Guangxi province. “Local villagers say Vietnamese police were escorting a group of Xinjiang people (about 16 of them, including four women, two children) towards Bắc Phong Sinh. They went to the third floor of the Vietnamese border patrol office building to have a rest, ready to hand them over to China.

Lucy Tang Fu Good morning Park Yoochun Kim Junsu and all Chunsas fans keep a heart with peace and quietly Happy Easter Day!

[EDITORIAL] 140420 (Idols, Pop Culture Invasion) Drama, Musical, Film… There’s a ‘Middleman’ in Every Genre – Park Yoochun, Kim Junsu Who are the best stars in this sector? Although a lot of idols have deeply infiltrated popular culture, Read more ...
a few are considered undoubtedly triumphant in achieving popular success. With star quality and box-office potential, who are these all-rounder ‘must-have’ idols? JYJ Park Yoochun has dominated television. Park Yoochun was introduced as an actor through the lead character Lee Sun Joon in 2010 hit drama ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’, and instantly penetrated into the small screen. With regards to Park Yoochun’s acting, Shin Kyung Soo PD of SBS Wed-Thu drama ‘Three Days’ that’s currently airing said, “He surprised me with each episode. The martial arts director also praised his action performance.” Amongst idol-turned-actors, Park Yoochun’s unrivalled blockbuster power is something to be proud of. A look at the average viewer ratings of the dramas he has appeared in: ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’ 10.1%, ‘Miss Ripley’ 15.4%, ‘Rooftop Prince’ 14.8%, ‘I Miss You’ 11.6%; and as expected, ‘Three Days’ has also been showing stable viewer ratings at above 10%. All five consecutive productions he has acted in have maintained double-digit viewer ratings. As a Hallyu star, his blockbuster power overseas is also unquestionable. All the productions he has previously appeared in were broadcasted in Japan while the DVDs sold like hot cakes. ‘Three Days’ was exported to China for approx. $50,000 per episode, exceeding the previous record holder ‘My Love from the Stars’. Another JYJ member Kim Junsu has established himself as ‘box-office guarantee’ in the musical scene. In 2010, he was cast in the musical ‘Mozart!’ which was held in the 3,000-seat main theatre of Sejong Center for the Performing Arts; he made a splendid debut with tickets to 15 performances he appeared in all sold out. His performances in musicals ‘Tears of Heaven’ and later on ‘Mozart!’ encore stage were also sold out, showing off an unrivalled ‘ticket power’. The production that gave Kim Junsu wings to fly is the 2012 musical ‘Elisabeth’. He won the Best Actor Award at ‘The 18th Korea Musical Awards’ for his role as ‘Death’, receiving recognition for his singing and acting abilities. Professor Lee Yoo Ri from the Department of Musical Theatre of Chungkang College of Cultural Industries commented, “It’s almost impossible to maintain ‘ticket power’ reputation for four consecutive years relying only on his title as an idol. The passion, sincerity, and his own acting style he has built in order to overcome the aspects he lacked in are what placed Kim Junsu in the best position.” [...] Note: parts unrelated to Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu were omitted.

Lets see if we can get 1000 likes and Shares by ANZAC Day BRISBANE CITY PRE - DAWN SERVICE LIVE STREAM TO KING GEORGE SQUARE SUITABLE FOR FAMILIES AND GROUPS COMMENCING AT 04.28AM ANZAC DAY, 25TH APRIL 2014 ANZAC SQUARE The ANZAC Day Dawn Service Co Read more ...
mbined Committee (ADDSCC) is conducting the pre - dawn service again this year. The Service is timed to commence at exactly 04.28 AM the time that the first ANZAC set foot ashore at ANZAC Cove on 25th April 1915. Over the last few years the crowds attending this service have grown significantly to the point where it is now quite congested in ANZAC Square with some 18 000 to 20 000 people in attendance, however we vigorously encourage you all to attend. With this in mind we have arranged to live stream the Service from ANZAC Square to King George Square plus we also intend using Post Office Square as we have done in previous years. King George Square would be most suitable to families and groups as there will be less congestion. There is some seating provided plus First Aid and Toilets. There will also be some screens erected so as to ensure that everyone will be able to view the activities Although the Service is streamed from ANZAC Square there will be a feeling of being involved as we have the Sword of Sacrifice installed in King George Square as a Memorial , a Defence Catafalque Party mount here at the same time as in ANZAC Square together with a flag party to lower and raise the flags as required and a Bugler and Piper mounted above the square on the parapet of City Hall. Those attending King George Square will also have the opportunity to pay their respects and lay a wreath on the Sword of Sacrifice at the same time as wreaths are being laid in ANZAC square. You could say that the service at King George Square will be unique as it will be separate but still the same Due to anticipated large numbers attending we have arranged with Queensland Rail to have their trains arrive at Central prior to 4.00AM so as to give the crowds time to get in and get settled in whichever location they wish. King George Square would be an ideal location for family groups and people with disabilities. There will be SES and St John Ambulance people in attendance to care for any medical emergencies. A common problem in this respect is dehydration so we strongly encourage all those attending to have some food and liquid nourishment prior to arrival (Not Alcohol). We also encourage you to bring along bottled water and a snack in the event that you may feel unwell during the proceedings. Please make an effort to attend, you are all very welcome and please share this notice with family, friends and colleagues via email, word of mouth and all forms of social media. LEST WE FORGET Media Contact John P Smith OAM JP (Qual) Hon Chairman ADDSCC Ph.; 07 54985202 or mobile 0407460358

Phil Brock On Friday, April 17th the Santa Monica Daily Press published the first column in a weekly series by the SMart salon of architects, engineers and...me about our development problems in our town. Each article will focus on a different area of issues Read more ...
and solutions to our uniquely Santa Monica dilemma. You can find the SMart article on our website and in the body of this post.. The members of SMart have generations of experience in open space, development, sustainable architecture and, most of all, each one of us loves Santa Monica. ARCHITECTS’ VISION: A 10 WEEK PROGRAM FOR A HEALTHY CITY 4.19.2014 The current system is broken – it’s not working for developers, the city, or the community. Over 40 Development Agreements (DA’s) have created a tsunami of activity – in stark contrast to the handful of D.A.s the prior 25 years. The 20 year growth anticipated in the general plan has already taken place in the 3 years since the plan was approved! A recent casualty of this process was the Hines Bergamot Transit Village application that took 7 years to be processed only to be challenged in a community-wide referendum days after City Council approval. The city needs to protect itself from this feeding frenzy or the warmth and charm of our city will soon be gone. Of late, resident concerns seem to be taking a backseat to developer and business interests. As design professionals and long-time residents, our hope is to inform the community of the critical nature of issues we are facing and of consequences of inaction in the face of the current rampant and poorly conceived development. Next week we will discuss TRAFFIC where we’re rapidly losing our goal of being a “driveable city” – a city you could cross in 15 minutes. We are told that abandoning cars will make it easier to get around, but the city’s proposed “Transportation Demand Management” (TDM) program will be ineffective unless reliable and accessible transit alternatives come first. We will explore more realistic remedies to recapture our mobility and reduce gridlock. The following week, HEIGHT will be the topic, where City Hall seems to believe that bigger and taller will make the city better. Staff is recommending that some areas have height increases up to 300%! We will discuss ways to avoid our streets becoming canyons lined with walls of buildings that replace sunlight with shade. Many beachside cities already have 30 foot height limits, more open space, and remain economically sound! A “prescriptive code” with a simple height, density, and open space ratio will allow for reasonable growth and creative design while eliminating “backroom deals” (DAs) that often benefit the developer at the expense of the community. In week, 3 we’ll address a DOWNTOWN that is not only about height and density –but wider sidewalks, better building design, open space and sunlight. Currently plans for the downtown are being shaped by developers, not the community with “super-sized” projects is slowly covering our downtown like a cancer. The D.A. process does not work and should be eliminated as it allows too much “wiggle room”. We’ll discuss our INFRASTRUCTURE that needs to upgraded before more development is allowed!! We live in a consumer society with its offspring of –“waste”. How do we balance a healthy environment with this onslaught of development? City Hall never addressed whether existing infrastructure can accommodate extensive development. The damage left in the wake of this feeding frenzy is not only reducing our quality of life, but will leave the residents to pick up the tab for the additional infrastructure that it will require !! Regarding the city’s obsession with OPPORTUNITY SITES along with greater community benefits, this is simply more opportunity for developers than for the community. Height doesn’t equate with iconic architecture. Sunlight and open skies, however, do equate with an iconic environment. More traffic and shade with less sunlight and local business are not exactly “community benefits” since no amount of benefits can make a poorly conceived project worthwhile. In considering PARKING, we’re caught in a shell game where community benefits are paid for by decreased parking requirements. And the reduction of on-site parking will inevitably lead to more cars in adjacent residential neighborhoods. Enough TDF, TIF, TOD, FAR, AVR, unbundled parking, shared parking , etc. – let’s begin to look at this realistically. Santa Monica’s rapid growth may be an urban planner’s dream, but for the rest of us, it’s become a nightmare. Next we’ll focus on development along our BOULEVARDS. The LUCE general plan calls for only 4% of our city to be further developed with the remaining 96% preserved. But with the dissolution of redevelopment funds, the city is anxiously envisioning large office buildings along the major corridors to provide funding through development fees. For adjacent residential neighborhoods, quality on our boulevards is more important than quantity and more traffic. And our heritage of HISTORICAL buildings like our courtyard housing, bring human scale that makes Santa Monica different and special. Inflated property values and community benefits have become reasons to tear down small and rebuild large. With appropriate incentives, ADAPTIVE REUSE of existing buildings with character will blend old and new, retain local business, and maintain a beachfront atmosphere that retains our City’s heritage. The greenest buildings are the ones we don’t tear down. We strongly feel Santa Monica can remain iconic while still providing for growth and economic health. With more than 40 pending D.A.s, it is a clear indication that Santa Monica could in the “driver’s seat” rather than a reluctant passenger. Yet City Hall continues to follow the money and give in to the developers’ demands too easily. It’s sad to see the city ruined by outside business interests who won’t even be around to experience the consequences of their greed while the residents are left with the consequences of their fear-based decisions. If we focus on our friendly beach-town character as well as the new, we can connect past and future and enjoy the best of both. Balancing between residents, business, and tourists will allow Santa Monica to flourish while preserving its quality of life. The fate of our city will be decided in our town hall! We hope you will become further informed over the next 8 weeks and better understand the immediacy and gravity of the decisions before us that could forever change the face of our City.
