Well I was awarded my Associates Degree in January this year. Such a crazy journey I embarked on after deciding I wanted to get a #higher education. #storytime After graduating high school nearly 11 years ago I was sort of lost not having a direction. I didn’t want to pay for a degree if I wasn’t set on what I wanted to do. After some small stints at various jobs I went on on a #proselytizing and #service mission for my church. After returning home after a honorable two years I had the great influence of many members of the military guiding me to enlist in the #unitedstates #armedforces After finding out about the @usairforce offered education/credits towards a trade as enlisted member I decided to #enlist in 2013. After sometime I lost my purpose again being sucked into the day to day life that come with active duty life. I was reminded by my (now) #mentor that I joined not to blow my evenings playing video games (nothing wrong with that it’s just not the best thing you can do when there are better things you can do). So in 2015 I decided to enroll in school and @embryriddle called to me I wanted to do something with #aircraft so I started pursuing education through them.. My Technical School Gabe me 24 Credit hours towards munition systems technology. So it took me a minute to work on. Getting the rest of the credit taken care of After many hours studying, pausing classes due to military movements, I was finally able to finish up my required credits. I’m now pursing a minor in #helicopter operations and safety. Next week I start my second class into my junior level courses. It’s not going to get any easier so I’ll keep grinding away Class by class until it’s over with.

As a #doortodoor #professional #company some of the #nosoliciting signs we come across are hilarious. No #proselytizing ! No we won’t try to convince you to change your religion, just to #aerate your #lawn #customexteriorscanada #charm

#brooklynheights was the equivalent of #vaticancity for the #proselytizing #missionaries of the #jehovahswitnesses a/k/a #watchtowerbibleandtractsociety. The #crooklyn expansion was due to their second leader Joseph Rutherford and his desire to be in the #cityofchurches, due to its large #religious #middleclass, and powerful preachers. Judge began his career in law, working as a court #stenographer, #triallawyer, #prosecutor and a Judge before joining #godskingdom as legal counsel, then President, then #realestate maven - long before the neighborhood was home to some of the best 🍕 in the borough, and neighborhood insutititon #henrysend 🍷.The #preacherman felt that faith should come before #patriotism, even through WWI was in process and was arrested and charged under the 1917 #espionageact for #insubordination, disloyalty, refusal of duty in the #armedforces, and obstructing recruitment and enlistment before the charges were dropped in 1920. The act was passed shortly after the 🇺🇲 entry into the war and made it a crime for any person to convey information intended to interfere with the US #troops prosecution of the war effort, or to promote the success of the country’s enemies. #hova, short for J-Hova, is a play on the word #jehovah, which is the #hebrew word for #god. Jay-Z has called himself the "god" of rap. In #rhymenomore he states, "They call me J-Hova cause the flow is religious." The 15 feet high letters and clock welcomed visitors to #kingdomcome until it came down as part of the $340m purchase and redevelopment of the once commerical nabe. The incoming denizens will likely be #moneyrichtimepoor; the 🇬🇧 born expression for those with disposable income but minimal time for leisure. As per the good folks @harvard_business_review research in progress, treating your weekend like a small vacation — can increase your happiness 🙂. #criminallawyer

From @awaiting.the.king - 2/1/2019 Associated Press SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - One #northkorean #defector in #seoul describes her family back home quietly singing #christian #hymns every Sunday while someone stood watch for informers. A second cowered under a blanket or in the toilet when #praying in the North. Yet another recalls seeing a fellow #prison inmate who'd been severely beaten for refusing to repudiate her #religion. These accounts from interviews with The Associated Press provide a small window into how #underground #christians in North Korea struggle to maintain their #faith amid persistent crackdowns. The North's treatment of Christians could become a bigger issue if North Korean leader #kimjongun's expected second summit with U.S. President #donaldtrump produces significant progress, and if #popefrancis follows through on his expressed willingness to take up Kim's invitation to visit North Korea. Most of North Korea's #undergroundchristians do not engage in the extremely dangerous work of #proselytizing, according to defectors and outside experts. Instead, they largely keep their beliefs to themselves or within their immediate families. But even those who stay deep underground face danger, defectors say. North Korea has previously arrested #southkorean and #american #missionaries for allegedly attempting to build underground church networks or overthrow its #government. Only a small number of North Korean believers risk trying to win #converts, defectors say. One woman interviewed said she converted about 10 relatives and neighbors and held #secret services before defecting to the South. “I wanted to build my church and sing out as loud as I could," said the woman, who is now a pastor in Seoul. She insisted on only being identified with her initials, H.Y., because of serious worries about the safety of her converts and family in the North. The pastor and others spoke with AP because they wanted to highlight the #persecution they feel Christians face in North Korea. Although the comments cannot be independently confirmed, they generally match the previous claims of other defectors. Kim Yun Tae, head of the Unification Strategy Institution

Going, going... this pine pulpit from Nova Scotia just needs a home. It once flew by helicopter when it was saved from a tiny church. 56.5” high, 22” wide, 36” at the base. Use it with your iPad (as a commanding standing desk) or to read your magazines. OR proselytizing, because why not?! •• #opentoday #cannerytradecentre #penticton •• #pine #pulpit #proselytizing #project #vintage #spreadtheword

Ännu en förortsfågel och en liten berättelse om Jehova. Strax efter att jag tagit denna såg jag hur en herre iförd gubbkeps och mild uppsyn ropade något från andra sidan övergångsstället. Han närmade sig, vi växlade några ord om kameror och kråkfåglar och så säger han: "Vill du ha något att läsa?" "Herre Jehova..." hör jag min inre röst säga "..det finns bara en sorts människor som erbjuder läsning åt främlingar mitt i trottoaren." Mycket riktigt, fram åkte "Vakna" och lite annan lektyr. Jag förklarade att jag inte var så kyrklig, men han sa att det inte var något problem. I de här texterna fanns viktig vägledning om min framtid, tydligen. "Jaha..." sa jag. "Men, Jehova...ja, utan att nu bruka hans namn på ett ovärdigt sätt...är han en Canon- eller Nikonkille?" Gubben fortsatte se mig milt i ögonen, men hans haka sjönk något och man kunde nästan höra kugghjulen rassla i huvudet. "Det...sånt...har han nog inte befattat sig med." "Då får jag nog finna min vägledning på annat håll, men tack ändå. Ha en fin dag." "Jaha, ja...ja, hejdå då!" Så tack, Jehova, för att du sänder ditt folk att frälsa mig och därigenom skänker mig månget välsignat fniss. Jag kan verkligen rekommendera Canons 70-200 f/2,8, den är så skarp och kommer såpass nära att man förmodligen ser såväl fliset i sin broders öga som bjälken i sitt eget. #orten #kråka #jehova #canoneosr #70200mmf28 #crow #proselytizing #hisingen

One of our investigators, (the mom of the three kids we baptized about a month ago) is getting married in 3 weeks and then she will be baptised! She is reading the Book of Mormon on her own and with her kids every night. She is a true convert and its humbling to see that the Lord can change lives through 2 18 year old boys. 💕 Are you reading the scriptures daily?

Quote Courtesy of The Dance of Life: We are the ones who send missionaries not just in religion but in virtually every aspect of life. Americans more than most seem dominated by the need to shape other people in our own image. This drive to clone our own culture is accompanied by the implicit conviction that culture is something that one dons and dolls like a suit of clothes. Unlike many other peoples on the globe, we don't experience our own culture as something that penetrates every cell of our bodies, which is the source of all meaning in our lives. Since culture is seen by Americans as something superficial which can be shed without disturbing what lies underneath, we are frequently blind to the disastrous consequences of our addiction to proselytizing. #thedanceoflife #edwardthall #book #quote #instabook #instaquote #instawisdom #culture #culturalinvasion #culturalcolonialism #instaknowledge #instaphoto #proselytizing #differentcultures #superficial #missionaries #lifelessons #thoughtsonlife #bookwisdom #wisdom #knowledge #castrotheater #castrodistrict #sanfrancisco #beatles #funmovie #yellowsubmarine #corespirit #grandmaster

The #corinthcanal connects the #ioniansea with the #aegeansea. The canal was first thought to be considered in the 7th century BC. #emperornero was the first to attempt the canal in 67 AD but the project was abandoned after he died. The idea was again revived after #greece obtained independence from the #ottomanempire in 1830. This 4 mile canal was completed in 1893. Because it is only 70’ wide at its base, it is now of little economic importance. The canal’s #limestone walls have been unstable and it is located in an active #seismiczone. Serious damage was done during #wwii during the #battleofgreece. Nowadays people like to #bungeejump from the bridge. Pictures also show the everpresent #jehovahswitnesses #proselytizing. The canal cuts through the #isthmusofcorinth and separates the #peloponnesus from the #greekmainland. #island or #peninsula? #gulfofcorinth #thankswikipedia

Ya’ll, I hate solicitors. I do. I own @cutcocutlery, a Kirby vacuum, I eat a lot of @girlscouts cookies and @boyscoutsofamerica popcorn. (Soon to be popcorn cookies?😆) I have a pest control service, already get the magazines I like, and my husband takes care of the lawn. I have a soft spot though for ANYONE who is passionate enough about something that they are willing to share it...for free. I always listen politely, take their literature, and wish them well. (I don’t grill them for a permit 😉) Today, I had a message and some literature of my own to share.... I also lent them an umbrella because this uv index today is unholy. My message was simple and true. 🙌🏻🙌🏻 “Friends! The sun does not discriminate! It giveth life, and it taketh life away. Because you are darker skinned and elderly does not mean you cannot be harmed. Do not fall into temptation to proselytize in the Midwest before high-noon without protection!”🙌🏻🙌🏻 Totally proud of myself. Seriously. I felt like I had something to give today. @mdsolarsciences & @curemelanoma gave me the correct tools to spread the good word.

Chick tracts. Jack Thomas Chick was an American cartoonist and publisher, best known for his evangelical fundamentalist Christian "Chick tracts", which presented his perspective on a variety of issues through sequential-art morality plays. #religion #chicktracts #proselytizing #atheist #fundie #evangelical #christian #cartoon #tracts

I was catholic once because I wanted to be a part of "my culture" quinceñeras and bautizos etc..and as I decolonized, I couldn't keep up the lie any longer.. I began to feel I was seriously disrespecting my ancestors by following the colonizer's religion. Our people were literally burned alive for our beliefs. I can relate with what @realnativesonly speaks 👇🏽.. I love my relatives but most are stuck on Catholicism or they are born again Christians.. I don't attack them.. Many of them are holding on by a thread and "the Lord" is the only thing keeping them from falling into a downward spiral.. I pray for them when I am in Temascal or when I have Hicuri ceremony, but that's the extent of my native #proselytizing. Repost from @realnativesonly - As a rule I don't trouble no man or woman about their religion. I personally choose not to follow any "religions" I do not believe in "God" as "Christians" believe in God. This does not make me or other Natives that feel this way "Atheist". You can be spiritual without having organized religion. I believe in traditional Ojibwe practices and concepts. This doesn't make me "savage" or "moraless" In fact our teachings are very integral. Our practices do not allow us to steal take and kill and enslave, entire nations for greed, rape and sodomize children and hide those actions behind the guise of religion and manifest destiny. - #decolonize

#instavlog Day 542 It’s That TYPE of Monday awe|struckediting Daily Insta #vlog: After a very inspiring sermon/video yesterday I felt that I needed to be willing to be more open and vulnerable and share my personal beliefs, thoughts and opinions every once in a while. My words and thoughts come out best when written down so I thought I would share some lettering with you every Monday and if you are interested in what I have to say you can read my words right here. So this is DAY ONE of a series (within my vlogs) that I am going to call #itsthattypeofmonday and we will do a little lettering and a little chatting every Monday right here on Instagram. Today’s topic is #proselytizing, or in less fancy terms, sharing your faith. In a video Penn Jillette exclaims in so many words that if you are not sharing with the people in your life what you believe to be life saving information then you might as well tell that person you hate them. If we as Christians aren’t willing to share the GOOD NEWS of Christ - who has come to earth, died on the cross and risen from the dead in order to save us from our most broken self - then we are not truly loving those around us. These are hard words for me to swallow but really the only thing keeping me from sharing my faith, with those in my life who don’t know it, is my fear. Fear of being rejected, fear of saying the wrong thing, fear of bad perception but scripture clearly tells us that “There is no room in love for fear. (1 John 4:18)” If I really LOVE God and those around me I cannot give into those fears but instead must “fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel.” If you are ever curious about what I believe please ask, like I said I will be sharing things over time if you care to read it but, if you see me in person or you want to message me and ask me any questions please feel free to do so. I love when there is room for free, open and kind discussion and I am more than willing to share my story of what God has done for me, with you.
