Heart & Hands of Jesus

The kids celebrated my birthday today at Sidewalk Sunday School. They sang their traditional horrible and squeaky rendition of, Happy Birthday, and Brandon, a member of my ministry team, gave me a special bouquet made to represt each of my six years as Director — six suckers.

My ministry team and I start each Sidewalk Sunday School in prayer. I always ask God to “help us be the heart and hands of Jesus.” I don’t just mean at Sidewalk. I mean everyday, in everything I do. I am not the only crusader in my family. My niece, Cindra, and her husband Tom have a mission as well. There’s is even grander then mine. Check it out: Eugene Hope Fest 2007.

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. So I answer the phone tonight as I always do when she calls: Gawpo. And the first thing she says is, “Okay how much can I put you down for?” I hem a little, I haw some more. I think about the near grand I’ve sunk into the cold salt water aquarium, and then there’s the roof, the siding and the 36×36 carport. I say, “Okay, a hundred bucks.” She says, “Did you say three fifty?” We settled on two hundred. She says, “Ok, now give me your credit card number.” After that, she said hello.

    I love Cindra. I really, really do.

    She assures me it’s tax deductible.

    Heart and hands of Jesus here I come.
