    I have been looking forward to joining this board....it's so interesting.

    Dave's the name, Welsh lad from Cardiff, now living in the Hautes Pyrénées.

    I became a Christian through God's Grace @ 20 yrs, now I am old @ 41 yrs.

    I like the mountains, rock climbing, skiing, hiking etc...

    Christmas Evans apparently founded our little church in Tongwynlais or at least preached there.

    I became a Christian a few years after his death so I never saw him preach :( but been to many a church building where he had preached...great man I think, very loyal to God ( which I think is very very important, God knows our hearts.)

    Will try to sort out a avatar.....

    I just try to make it look like I play.

    I volunteer for the local special help people. We get in a circle and sing sing-along songs just for fun. For many of them it makes their week, and for me too.

    I have some guitar CD's that are very restful. I listen to old-style songs, just to listen for the guitars. I like the sound too.

    Welcome Dave. Who is Christmas Evans? Sounds like someone everyone should desire to know or hear preach. I'm a Reformed Baptist in the States. Saved at 18 years of age and I'm 41. I was regenerate 6 months after I joined the Navy. I went into the Navy and Sobered up. It scared everyone I knew. They thought I was scary enough already. Have Fun!:banana:

    Sure that's great, I am from Cardiff, got involved with Rhiwbina Baptist but have links with Bretheren, and Evangelical churches in Cardiff...but to be really honest they all totally confused me... I am just a sinful man in need of God who turned to Christ and has since found the Church to be a shambles. Lord Christ help!

    David,

    If you use the "Post Reply Button" instead of the Quick Reply box at the bottom, it takes you to a new page where you can type your reply. At the bottom there are three buttons that include an automatic spell checker.

    [​IMG]

    There are also spell checking programs for both IE and Firefox, if you want that.

    Guess that's a rebuke. Sorry Fred did I do something wrong?

    Did I get a some words wrong? Not everybody body understands 'hath' either.

    And besides....what did I do wrong?


    Thats the amazing thing of the greek of the New Testament it is the language of the day....not of the past.

    No rebuke! Just an error on my part! :banghead: Sorry, but I meant to quote the part of your message that said:
    "Sorry but I do not like bad spelling"

    I thought you wanted to know how to spell check. That's what happens when you post quick before heading off to church!

    Sorry again.

    Welcome David! My wife and I went to England on our honeymoon...we made it down to Cardiff. What a beautiful place! Next time we're going to Great Britain, we will be spending much more time in Wales than in London. Anyways, welcome!
