    so lots of talking, everyone's ideas and especially prayers would be really welcome
    And at the same time we're talking to people about funding
    If we could get 1-2 fulltime devs and some others working in their spare time
    that would be ideal
    just working stuff out though
    If I had to sum it up, what's on my heart is the church in the developing world has so much need
    And the church in the west is.. Laodicean
    And maybe we can try to fix some of that, shake people out of their sleep

    Hi All, I've spent some time thinking about it and discussing with my wife. Unfortunately I'm not going to have time to be involved. We've got a toddler, and God willing a new one on the way, and coupled with wanting to work on my own projects I'm too time poor to commit with any integrity.
    @jason-persson totally understandable :) you're more than welcome to hang around, I actually created this channel as a general Christian hacker chat, not just for the project
    speaking of which, some stuff went down tonight that's a pretty massive praise point WRT work stuff, hopefully pat and I can share it in the next week or so when the smoke settles. Suffice to say prayer and faith had us hold out in an almost impossible situation, expecting God to come through at the 11th hour, and He did tonight in a massive way :)

    @pomke that sounds awesome - looking forward to hearing all about it
    @jason-persson I think we are in similar situations, but I'm definitely going to hang around and if there are any little things I can do to help I'll be pitching in. I reckon you should feel free to hang out here as much or as little as you like :)

    Thought for the day: ecc 4:9-12

    Two are better than one,
    because they have a good return for their labor:
    If either of them falls down,
    one can help the other up.
    But pity anyone who falls
    and has no one to help them up.
    Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
    But how can one keep warm alone?
    Though one may be overpowered,
    two can defend themselves.
    A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

    I'm claiming this for my wife and I atm, when one falls down the other is there to pick the other up. A cord of 3 well, that's Jesus in the mix, we'll not be quickly broken
    Small updates: quitting $company today (well, giving notice), the hostile takeover has happened and handover will be complete soon. Pat and I have been talking/praying with different Christian business men through this process and the message we've been getting confirmed is that this year has not been wasted time, that the project we've been desiring to build is going to come out of this
    hudson-taylor (the library not the missionary!) was built during this time and will form the basis of yownah/iona
    so .. yeh, good things I think.
    Also I had a prophetic word last week, I was woken up eeeeeearly sat morning and was prompted to get a pen and paper and write
    actually, sec I'll find the email I sent to my pastor ;p

    I woke at 7 this morning with a clear word in my mind ‘Read 1 Corinthians 14’. I did not recall what 1 Cor 14 was about but immediately as I got up and opened my bible realised it was the chapter on prophecy and tongues which we'd been speaking about with David at our bible study on Thursday. I had been praying just last night and several times previous that God would give us interpretation of tongues in our church and in our prayer meetings and also personally for personal revelation in prayer.

    I asked the Holy Spirit if there was something He wanted to say so I got a pen and paper out and immediately I got the words ‘Thus says the Lord, the Lord of Hosts’. Immediately I was concerned because I do not want to say that God is speaking when it is me speaking, so I prayed asking that it would not be me, and I started writing, and this is what I felt to write.


    “Thus says the Lord, the Lord of Hosts,

    I am preparing you in these days for what I am about to do. For a time is coming and indeed has come when I shall pour out my Spirit on all flesh. Every brother amongst you shall prophesy and sister interpret tongues and dream dreams.

    The days of man on the earth are few and soon My Kingdom will come on the earth as it is in Heaven.

    Be prepared as virgins who carried enough oil to see the coming of the Bride Groom.

    Give the oil that brings life which is My Holy Spirit and walking in My commandments and My ways to all. Lift up and encourage the little ones, the lost ones in this time of strife knowing that the dawn is near and it must get darker before it becomes light.

    Soon the Devil and all those who oppose Us will be bound and cast into the pit.

    Take courage and know that the Lord your God cares for you as a hen cares for her chicks. I will gather you to my wings and keep you safe. I will wipe away every tear and you will know me face to face.

    Do not be afraid, I am with you says the Lord.”

    I do not know why I got brothers prophesying and sisters interpreting and dreaming dreams because I know that in Acts it says ‘Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men dream dreams’. Perhaps the order is different because these things are for everyone and the words are illustrative that ‘all types of people will do all of these things’ ?
    Anywho, judge that by the spirit, don't take my word, but it's not made up.
    Also just a reminder, if you know any other Christian hackers let them know about this palce, it's not a project channel it's intended to be a christian hacker channel :)
    For people who don't believe in Jesus, folk in this office sure like using his name :/
