Title: The Source

Author: James A. Michener

Categories: Fiction, History, Isreal

I LOVE MICHENER! This guy rocks! I want to read as many of his books. A friend of mine told me that he has a team of like 30 people that help him write and do reseach. I kind of lost some respect but then thought - hey you do what you have to do. If you want to write a killer historical book like this, you need to have 30 people helping you. Better than only one and getting the facts wrong.

Seriously, This book details the history of the Israel/Palistine area from the begining of time to 1964. Reading this book I learned a lot about the Jewish customs, their sorted history, the embarrasing and horrible crusades, and more about the Jewish religion. Other books written by him are The Covenant (read it too and loved), Hawaii, Mexico, Centenial and the Drifters. I think I am going to try to find drifters next.

For another cool book review, check this one out.

Note: there are many different covers to this book.

Send a Child to Awanas

Here is a really easy and cool way to support the ministry here in Puerto Viejo. Our Children's ministry is starting the Awanas program, a teaching tool used to train children in life lessons from the bible. The Cost to send one child to the Awana's program is $17 (isn't that less than two movie tickets?) If you would like to impact the life of a child in Costa Rica, this is one of the best ways to do it. Just click this Awanas logo at the bottem of this post and in the Message box description write, "Awanas Program in Puerto Viejo"

Thanks for your help in impacting the youth of Puerto Viejo.

Phil & Shan
