Monavie Independent Distributor

On a personal note, I have recently signed-on as an Independent Distributor for Monavie. I began drinking this juice, which contains açai berry and 18 other body-beneficial fruits, including cupuaçu, camu camu, aronia, acerola, blueberry, bilberry, and pomegranate, several weeks ago. I have found that I have more energy. I'm not saying it will have the same result for you, but I know it does contain vitamins and antioxidants that our body needs. I figure I need all of the help I can get with my erratic eating schdule, especially when I'm on the road.

If you would like more information on the Monavie products, nutritional information, or the Monavie bussiness opportunity visit my Monavie site. You can also purchase products and enroll as a distributor on the same site.

Bluegrass At Nahunta Revival

The Wilson Family Band provided special music during the Monday night revival service at Riverside Chapel Baptist Church in Nahunta, Georgia. The video below features a medley of a few songs from the service.

It's always a pleasure for me to minister with this fine family. Robert, his wife Melissa and I go back many years to when I was actively involved in the Bluegrass Music industry. A previous post on this site provides more info about our bluegrass days.

Pictured in the photo are (left to right in back) Pastor Randy Wainright of Riverside Chapel Baptist Church, Robert Wilson, Clint Wilson, Melissa Wilson, (front) me and Katie Wilson. Additional photos from the services are viewable in this photo album.

I posted another medley of songs by The Wilson Family Band in 2007 and it is currently the most viewed video on my YouTube Channel having been played over 20,000 times. I've included this video below for your convenience.

All of the music for the services has been really good. Different musicians are featured each night.

By the way, the services at Riverside Chapel Baptist Church will continue at 7pm tonight and Friday. The church is located at
1998 Riverside Road near Nahunta, Georgia. For more information or directions call Pastor Randy Wainright at (912) 462-5067.

The Children of Israel

"There's something I can't figure out," Little Joey said to his Sunday School teacher.

"What's that, Joey?" asked the teacher.

"Well, according to the Bible, the Children of Israel crossed the Red Sea, right?"

"Right."

"And the Children of Israel beat up the Phillistines, right?"

"Er, right."

"And the Children of Israel built the Temple, right?"

"Again you're right."

"And the Children of Israel fought the Egyptians, and the Children of Israel fought the Romans, and the Children of Israel were always doing something important, right?"

"All that is right, too," agreed the teacher. "So what's your question?"

"What were all the grown-ups doing?"

High Springs Herald Article About Evangelist

NOTE: The April 30, 2009 edition of the High Springs Herald (Florida) has a front-page article titled "A Giant Nonetheless" about my preaching at Hague Baptist Church this week. The article is written by Tara Massagee and includes four photos by Sarah Hsu. The newspaper's online version only shows three of the photos, but allows you to make comments about the article on their website.

Croft uses his height to make big points at church

ALACHUA – Those sitting in the rear pews of the church could barely see evangelist James Croft at the altar above the heads of other church members.

Croft is only 3 feet 10 inches tall, but that does not bother him.

“I would not know how to live as a taller person, he said. “This is all I know. This is how I am. This is how God made me.”

Monday night was the first of a 5-part series of lessons that Croft will be preaching at Hague Baptist Church. There will be a lesson today, Thursday, April 30 at 7:30 p.m. and the last lesson will be Friday, May 1 at 7:30 p.m.

“He’s a little man, but when he preaches, he sounds like a giant,” Church Pastor Sam Brown said. “Brother James is going to revive us some more.”

Croft insists on spreading his message of the Word of the Lord.

Standing at his custom-made pulpit that was half the size of Brown’s, Croft began the revival by telling the congregation to hold their Bibles up in the air.

“Shake them at the devil, because he can’t stand the Word of God,” Croft said.
