Before I check out for the day, let me share this with you all.

Yesterday, I spent some time with my good Ethiopian brothers in Christ, discussing about the effect of eating raw meat. After the discussion, they recommended that I mention the topic here on A4P’s Facebook page. So, here we go.

Well, do you know eating raw meat can be a risk factor for erectile dysfunction (ED)? Yes, it is. Continue reading Before I check out for the day, let me share this with you all.

“Hero”

For those of you who are voracious readers out there, here is a wonderful book to read: “Hero.”

And guess who wrote this wonderful book? Fred Stoeker! Yeap! Co-author of “Every Man’s Battle” and author of “Tactics”.

“Wow” is all I can say about “Hero!” I just finished it. I destroyed the book with my highlighters and side notes. It is a fantastic book!

And guess why I loved it? Well, it is written for men! Continue reading “Hero”

A Thought I never knew Existed

I believe that every Christian who wants to lead a praiseworthy life must have a disciplined life; a life that is mainly marked by prayer, reading and meditating the Word of God and fasting.

Well, when it comes to prayer and reading and meditating the Word of God, I think I’m okay. But when it comes to fasting, well, that is a different story. If I was graded on fasting, I will get, without any question, straight F. Continue reading A Thought I never knew Existed

Shocking Reality of the Condition of my Heart

While I was waiting in line for the cashier to pay for my items, I saw a beautiful chap-stick hanging on the side of the isle. I looked closer to see the flavor and I immediately realized that it was an orange flavor. I mean, I love orange and anything orange color steals my heart instantly.

So, I picked it up but didn’t want to put it in my shopping cart thinking that it would fall between the holes of the shopping cart. So, I held it on my hand until my turn. Continue reading Shocking Reality of the Condition of my Heart

Eulogy to my Nephew Messayei

I have known Messayei since he joined my brother’s orphanage, Pefan almost twelve or thirteen years ago. He came in as a ten or eleven years old boy. Messayei grew up in Pefan, very close to his father, Fish (my brother). Messayei had always been a very loving and caring person. Last time I saw him was last summer when I was visiting my parents in Addis. My parents always called for him if something didn’t work in t Continue reading Eulogy to my Nephew Messayei

My Journal Entry of Monday, December 28, 2009 at 5:21am

Sometimes when I feel a little down or lose interest to pray and worship God or don’t want to do the work of God, I tend to go back to my journals and flip some pages and read. I just did that few minutes ago. God encouraged me as I read some of my entries from 2005.

Some of my entries go like this: God spoke to my heart saying, “this and that.” Oh, I can’t tell you how much those entries encourage me. Continue reading My Journal Entry of Monday, December 28, 2009 at 5:21am

Blessings!

Last Sunday, our senior pastor said, “This week is a week you bless everyone you run into. Or, call someone and when they pick up the phone, don’t even say “Hi” or anything. Just pour a blessing on them.”

I love it! So, this morning, I decide to bless you. Since A4P Facebook page fans are diverse, I want to write my blessing to a group of people:

To Married Couples: Continue reading Blessings!
