4th of July

James and Jean McMurphy

James and Jean McMurphy

It was the day we celebrated my dad’s birthday.   He was born in 1909.   At age 30 he became a believer.  Later he got married and had six children of which I was the youngest.  He went to be with the Lord in 1990 and I look forward to joining he and Jesus in the new Jerusalem.  To the right is a picture of my mother and father taken in 1986.

To celebrate we are having a picnic on July 4th, tomorrow.   We anticipate having 100+ people over to the house for fun, food and fellowship.  It will be a potluck picnic so I anticipate seeing a lot of rice and various Burmese and Lao dishes.  We’ll try to get some pictures posted after the event.

About johnmcmurphy

Jesus is first and foremost in my life. He is above all religions, principalities and powers. In everything He must increase and I must decrease. Into the hands of Jesus, God has placed life and death, truth and purity. strength and meaning. Only in a growing understanding of the triune God, and his son Jesus can I do, breathe, exist and serve. I have a Bachelor's degree in Bible from Vennard College, a Master's in Social Science from Azusa Pacific University and a Ph. D. from Ohio State in Family Relations and Human Development. I am an ordained pastor involved in cross-cultural ministry. I am currently employed at several colleges as an instructor. If you need to get in touch with me, just leave a comment, I screen all comments and so you can leave further contact information which I will erase before it is published. -John
