Update on Freemind

I was just visiting the Freemind website and Freemind has made into the top 12 of “Best Project for Educators” category.  I don’t know who the deciding body is but if you read my earlier post you know that I love the program and I agree whole heartily that it is a great program.

They also have a “release candidate” for the latest upgrade that is loaded with new features.  A “release candidate” is one step above Beta testing and is a broader distribution that is offered for final testing.  If you choose to use a release candidate of any software, be sure to understand the limitations and know bugs before converting your existing data to the release candidate version.  If you like to have a part in the development of great software, using and reporting problems during Beta testing and the testing of a release candidate is an excellent way to get involved.  It is not without risk but the more testers there are, the more robust and feature rich a program is when it is finally released.

Miracles Abound!

On another note, I’d like to take a few lines to share how God has shown his miraculous power at my church, Eastridge Christian Assembly.

We are in the middle of a large building project that includes a sanctuary that will seat just a few short of 1500.  The building will be community oriented with a large atrium, kids area the includes a “splash mountain” style motif, and a long list of other amenities that will make it a great family oriented place for our congregation and the community.  I will try and keep this as short as possible but bear with me as this is quite a “hallelujah list.”

We started our building fund long before we even had a piece of property so for those who have been down this road, you know we started off doing it differently from the very start.  All of the property that had been considered was determined to be unsuitable for one reason or another.  After about two years of adding to the building fund we were no farther along in acquiring any property than we were on day one.  Pastor Steve preached a sermon about God’s feeding the Israelites mana in the desert.  God could have given them, quail, doves, or any other food with which they were already familiar.  He gave them mana so that they could never explain it in any other way but to acknowledge that it was a miracle of God.  The next day, one of our members (who had not heard that Sunday’s sermon) called the Pastor and said that he had a friend who was in some financial difficulty and he had 19 acres that he needed to sell as soon as possible.  The property was two blocks from our current location and our land use lawyer said that in twenty years of looking for property for churches, it is was the best piece of property he had seen.  It was priced way below market and because our building fund already had two years accumulation, we were ready to buy.  The way the property came to us and the timing was just like mana in the desert.  God’s timing is perfect.
