MONDAY MUSINGS

Don Mann - casualLobster anyone?

MJ and I took advantage of the low lobster prices on Saturday, went to the local Metro store and treated ourselves to two lobster.

Every time I get to eat a lobster (which is rare), I am reminded of my childhood days in Bathurst New Brunswick (my birthplace).  My parents pastored the Pentecostal Church there, and once and a while a local fisherman would bring a washtub full of live lobster into our home.  My Mom would cook them, we would hear them squeal in the pot and then the family would sit down to have a feast.

In just a few hours I will board a plane bound for Halifax N.S. and then on to Yarmouth where I have the privilege of preaching at the Maritime District Conference this week.  I’m going back to my roots!!!

Who would have ever dreamed that a little, lobster eating boy from Bathurst New Brunswick would grow up to become a pastor/missionary with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada.  A return to the Maritimes is always a reminder of my godly heritage.  Oh yeah, the lobster was great, but the memories of parents and grandparents who loved God and trusted Him for everything is what will last a lifetime.

If you think of me this week, I would appreciate a little prayer.  I would be happy if you added a P.S. to your prayer in hopes that I might get a feed of lobster while I am there!!!

Until next Monday…

Don

    Good Monday Morning Don & Marie Jose! I saw the lobster on sale at Loblaw’s as well this past Saturday but I had to pass it up because, as you may have guessed, there was no room left in our fridges (including the one in the Reception room) where we met to celebrate J&J’s engagement!
    I have not had fresh lobster in such a long time and now you have given me the taste for it so I will keep an eye out for any lobster sales in the coming weeks!
    Calvin and I want you to know how much we appreciate you both and how much we respect all that you have done and are doing in your new undertaking for Reinventing The Church. It is the right time and we fully support your ministry as you reach out and provide the necessary training and support for pastors worldwide. We pray that God will continue to speak to you and encourage you as you receive the support from those around you. You set a high standard of excellence which we deeply respect and Calvin and I have long conversations about your unwavering faith and you give US strength as well to reach out to others and help and support as we can. I don’t write too many personal emails as I am constantly on the computer at work but we wanted you to know that we feel you are doing amazing work, which is so timely, and we continue to pray for safe travels, for God’s guidance in all that you do as you preach at the Maritime District Conference and that your words would open afresh the eyes and ears of those in attendance and with their support, bring a new vision and awareness of the relevance of what you are doing.
    God bless you both and we will speak soon!
    Have a great week!
    Calvin & Helen
    ( and we will pray for at least one lobster dinner for you! :-))
