Derek's Injured...

Yesterday, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I discussed what I did on SONday.  However, there was something I didn't mention, that I will discuss later, on today's entry.

I began writing this entry a few days ago.  The following information is what I thought I would mention.

My fellow blogger... Derek, who is biking around the world, was interviewed once again.  Here is a link for you to watch and/or listen:  http://ici.radio-canada.ca/regions/quebec/2014/08/13/007-boocok-pedaler-cancer.shtml.  Please understand that even though it is a French interview, Derek was speaking English.  I hope you'll watch the video, my friend.

Later, on Facebook (FB), I saw a posting made by a relative of Derek's.  Here is what the message said:  Hello Everyone. We have had a call from Derek this evening and he apparently had a cycling accident earlier today. His front tire exploded going downhill. He is now in Rimouski Regional Hospital (418-724-3000418-724-3000 x 8574) with suspected arm fractures. He is in a significant amount of pain. If anyone is in the area and can get in touch with him, it would be much appreciated.

This was shocking to me.

No, it wasn't the first time Derek had been injured.  While he was in the Middle East, he had been injured when he was hit in a collision.  At that time, his bike was demolished, and he was hurt.  Now, he's hurt, once again. 

I praise God that Derek wasn't killed.  And, I'm asking that you will pray for him.  Thank you, my friend.  May God bless you for this.

Now, going back to what I wanted to let you know I did on Sunday, was the fact that I went to the office of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation/Windsor (CBC/Windsor).

Knowing that CBC had interviewed Derek in the province of Quebec prior to his injury, I had prayed and hoped that CBC would do a follow-up interview.  If they did this, I prayed that people would step up to help him, in many ways.

Unfortunately, the office was closed.  No one was there.

So, yesterday (Monday), I went to the CBC Windsor office, once again. 

This time, I was able to speak with the manager.  He told me to contact either the person who had done the interview/video or to contact CBC/Montreal.

When I asked if he could do this for me, he responded that I had to do it, myself.  Sigh...

Having been away from home for a while, I decided to message Derek on FB, once I was home, again.  It was then, that I saw that the person who had done the interview/video had commented on one (1) of his two (2) FB pages.

I messaged the CBC employee.  She responded that she would be off work, so I need to contact another person. 

I praise God she gave me the person's name and contact information.  I thanked her, and let her know I would make contact, with the person she requested I get in touch with.

Thank You, Lord!  I praise You.  You are such a blessing, to me... and to all who are Your children!

This brought to mind, Psalm 34:1, "I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth."

Yes, I will continually praise Him! 

I will glorify Him, both in good times, and in not so good times.  For He is there with me, always.

Just as He is with You, if you belong to Him.  Do you belong to Him?

Some people ask what we must do to belong to Him?  What must we do to become saved? 

The answer is simple:  believe upon the Lord, Jesus Christ... and you shall be saved (Acts 16:31). 

Yes, by doing this, you will become a child of God.  And, will be saved from spending eternity in Hell.

Please believe upon/trust in Jesus, today.

Until next time...
