    ... and He is holy (Lev. 19:2) Can you name Jesus? Jesus is the son of God (John 3:16), Jesus became man (John 1:14), Jesus is sinless (2 Cor. 5:21), Jesus died for us (Romans 5:8), Jesus rose again (1Cor. 15:3-4) and in Jesus we can have forgiveness and eternal life (Romans 6:23). How do we own up to our sin? We have all sinned (Romans 3:23), we deserve eternal punishment (Romans 6:23), and we must admit we are sinners (Proverbs 28:13).

I also thought of the following words spoken by Nelson Mandela at his inaugural address and how I ...

    ... open windowed vehicle. Even though it was warm outside the guides handed us thick blankets to keep us warm while driving. They became very necessary later in the night when temperatures dropped by the minute. As we rode along the dirt roads, I reveled at the warm, country fresh air, birds and cicadas chirping and other wildlife noises. I hadn't been in warm weather for over a month and it felt so nice. It was overall a perfect evening. I was instantly relaxed and I ...

    ... The lady did find us a seat so we did get to recline. We landed a little before 3:00
    Most people on the flight were white so it was a bit of a surprise when about 90% of the people went to the African passport line.
