Ron shared his story at New City Church last Sunday. Here it is. It is a story of a muslim who became a Christ-follower because of the prayers, love, patience, and generosity of Christians.

We moved into Santee Village Loft early this week. We are actually living in a downtown loft! It's just one big room with a kitchen and a bathroom. It's a great loft. We will be living here temporarily until we move back to La Crescenta. We had to move out of our home in La Crescenta earlier in the summer because the landlord wanted the house back for his family. Well, the kids are having a blast living in a loft. The swimming pool is awesome!
Here are some pictures from the Beach Bonfire Party at Dockweiler Beach. We had a lot of people come out.
The beach party ended in a downer because there was a shooting in the parking lot by a gang member. No one was hurt but we all heard about 5-6 shots being fired. Later, the Police closed the beach. Overall, it made us confront the reality of gangs and what neighborhoods that are gang infested go through day and night. Lord, Thy Kingdom Come in LA!

Had a great time at the Dodgers Game. We had 45 of us go. The game was a great pitching duel until the 10th inning. It got really exciting during the 10th (I heard on the radio--my family had to leave during the 9th), but the Dodgers lost to the Braves. For the kids, the game was all about trying to get us to buy them peanuts, ice cream, cotton candy, etc. We had a lot of fun!
