What should be the first thing you blog about?

Well, I am not sure yet… I have read all the blogs on GMT and liked some and thought others went right above my head. There was one blogger that I looked forward to reading her blog as it always cheered me up. Sadly she is not


blogging anymore.

I am thinking about writing about Facebook, Hayat TV, Lily (my one and only girl), or my adorable one and only grandson Alexzander (pictured right).

My thoughts now are why did I commit myself to writing a blog, when I can hardly say a sentence without making a grammatical mistake? Who is going to fix the photos that keep moving as I am typing?

Islam has been occupying my mind for the last few months. A Muslim lady has been trying to convert my husband and me. She is a very zealous and dedicated Muslim. She has been using the KJV-only literature to prove that “Christians believe that the Scriptures have been altered.” That is why I have been streaming Hayat TV almost daily for the last few months.

Though there are things I disagree with on this satellite TV channel, I cannot but feel overwhelmed with how the Lord is using it to reach the Arabic speaking Muslims in the world and more specifically the unreached Arab world like Saudi Arabia.

I thank the Lord for dedicated people who are serving him all around the world.

First blog finished!

    Good post!

    I have also encountered unsaved people who use the versions issue to cast doubt on the accuracy of Scripture. I’m glad there’s a simple explanation that settles the matter for them and turns their attention back to the content of God’s Word.

    What’s Hayat TV? I don’t think I’ve ever heard of it.

    Hayat TV is a controversial satellite Arabic channel dedicated to preaching the gospel to Muslims.

    Thanks Mrs W (or Lina).

    I would be interested to hear more of Hayat in another post.

    I hope, my dear friend, that this is just first of many.
    I particularly look forward to your insights on ministering the gospel to Muslims.
    Perhaps we will also one day see a certain other member of the Wardan family contribute some writing???
