Religious movements and prophets have come and gone. Only ONE Person glorified weakness. Only ONE Person accepted shameful and humiliating death on a cross as the path to exaltation. Only ONE Person conquered the world through His death, death on a cross. And Only ONE Person rose from the dead. He is now exalted by God. He is "King of Kings" and "Lord of Lords!" Jesus Christ!

The True Story of How an Out-of-Control Egotistical Captain Humiliated the First Officer and Caused an Air Blue Airbus A321 to Crash!
July, 28 2010 near Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan, killing all 146 passengers and six crew on board flight 202: After listening to the cockpit communication, it becomes clear that the Captain premeditated at some point during his take-off tirade (1 hour long) humiliating the First Officer (FO) and then purposely ignoring certain headings from ATC. Inputting computer errors was just another device the Captain used to terrorize the FO, even more so than his tirade.
The Captain was consciously hell-bent on exerting egotistical power and control over the other man in the cockpit, the FO. In the secret recesses of his mind, he plotted to take the FO for the "ride of his life" over the next 1.5 hours. The Captain, by mixing the computer controls up a bit with blatant errors, now holds the keys to life and death, the ultimate power trip.
His premeditated actions are meant to assume power and instill fear and control over FO. The Captain then surmised that in the end, he would augment his domination by being a hero and saving the day with his aircraft (AC) knowledge and flying prowess. The Captain believed that after this flight, the FO will know for certain who is "top dog" and "alpha male."
Unfortunately, the Captain got in too deep with his mind games and could not dig himself out. As Captain, he believed he had absolute control over the FO and the AC. Ironically, he falls victim to his own devilish devices. Something greater than he, i.e. the weather and the automation of the aircraft become the ultimate power struggle winners in this air crash.
The Captain, haughty and proud, just seconds from disaster is humbled and then in a flash is broken and crushed as the AC disintegrates into the side of a mountain, missing the airport by 4 miles. The First Officer is redeemed in this story by the ultimate humiliation and destruction of the dominator.
In God's world, victims are exalted while the haughty and proud are brought low. And so the meaning of Christmas speaks to us from the rubble Air Blue flight 202:
"Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:" Isaiah 40:4
This is Santa Claus’ busiest season delivering to 80,000+ homeless in the region. To get ready we put up a small Christmas tree while writing and sending in today’s mail 200 Christmas greetings. Look for yours in the US mail celebrating both the poverty and the homelessness of Jesus which brought Him both Peace and Joy on that first Christmas 🎄 day!

5 TIPS FOR HAPPY, WEALTHY & WISE KIDS
1. Teach them and say with them a morning and a night prayer.
2. Teach and say with them a prayer before meals - "God is great, God is good, let us thank Him for our food. Amen!"
3. Teach them and go with them to church each Sunday.
4. Teach them and go with them making random acts of kindness - visit a nursing home, make holiday crafts for the old folks, help the homeless.
5. Teach them humility. We are first and foremost a child of God and we are made to "know love and serve Him."
"Train up a child in the ways of the LORD: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6

CODY WAYNE GIBBS
A native of Ventura, California. Cody has been homeless on and off since he was a child. Now at age 25, through the help of the Catholic missionaries, "Servants of the Father of Mercy" and people like you, one month ago he left Todd Road jail and enlisted in Ventura's "New Hope Sober Living Home."
Now in November 2018, Cody remains at "New Hope" attending two AA meetings a day and through Brandon, the house manager, Cody successfully submits to frequent and random drug/alcohol testing, Now, in November Cody is taking victory by the horns and beginning another new month being clean and sober.
But that's not all! November comes with a full-time job that also blesses him with built-in friends, paid work, breakfast, lunch and a great team of guys sharing the same struggles, hopes and dreams.
Life is moving fast for Cody right now, but in a good way. We need continued funding at $600 a month for his housing and program fees for the next 10 months.
Also, Cody must immediately restore his driver's license at the DMV. His boss is counting on him to be driving company vehicles very soon. One-month DMV class-work and fines is $500.
Lastly Cody needs $500 monthly for incidentals, work pants/shoes, groceries and medications.
All totaled, taking Cody off the streets and fulfilling his young dreams, hopes and inspirations is an investment costing approximately $15,000 over the next ten months.
We are so very grateful for your love, heart and compassion for our beaten and lost young homeless men that Cody has proven can permanently rise out of the ashes with your help and kind financial gift.
