Praying with Archbishop Alexander Sample of Portland Archdiocese on the 100th Centennial of St. Cecilia Parish - Beaverton, Oregon.

Dear reader, and Friends in Christ:

This truly was an extra special day for my lovely wife Jill and I to spend this most solemn centennial at St. Cecilia Parish with his grace Archbishop Sample.

I will never, NEVER forget how much love I felt that day as I sang in the choir with Jill, our director Vickie Hammes, Archbishop Sample, our Pastor Father Patrick McNamee, and the entire congregation of our faithful praying for all of our sick, homebound, and especially the disadvantaged this week.

Faithfully yours in Jesus Christ Our Lord!

Subject: Re: Brian Decker

Dear Brian:

I first off want to apologize for not responding to you sooner. I'm trying as quickly as possible to get through my responsibilities to Caesar (my name I choose to call the IRS), before everything is due April 15th, 2013, and also Holy Week (March 24th through March 30th).

Yes, I certainly do remember our wanton rantings we in toned to each other when we were much younger.  I remember about that time how well both you and I clicked as “dynamic duo” that my math teacher and Bill my science teacher kept calling us as. I also seem to remember having too many crushes on several of the girls there, and speaking in many sessions with Owen our counselor in his “comfy chair” at the time helping me to vastly calm down from several anger issues. Of course many of those I have solved now, and others I still working on as an imperfect being under God.

Thank you so much, Brian, for your prayers, and for possibly being in agreement with God in his nature, and in his church. I will most certainly pray for your needs about getting work, that I have some things to say on, and most certainly for your wife for whom I pray one day that both my wife Jill and I will be able to meet the two of you also.

In my job instead of career that I am working on now, I did not expect to simply trade one set of problems in my past career as a telephone company lineman to the other set of problems as a part-time contracted software engineer. In my career as a telephone company residential technician and cable maintenance repairman, I enjoyed long term stability in my career working for a nearly long term stable company called what was then US West Communications. I gained lots of skill over that 9.75 years from 1996 to 2006 in what they called globally a “Network Technician” doing install and maintenance of twisted pair copper, and multi-trunk pair gain equipment. It was stable until the company changed hands several times that caused wave after wave of layoffs. After only five years working there, I reached the top of the learning curve with no seniority, and I made the decision (a very hard one) to take my education and my work life destiny into my own hands.

My bachelor of computer science degree took from 2000 to 2005 at Oregon Institute of Technology campus  in Portland (that is now is Wilsonville) by attending school at night in order to make reasonable progress. In 2006, Jill and I sold our home in Beaverton, OR on Rigert Road, and moved to Issaquah, WA about 2 miles from Redmond, WA where Microsoft has their main campus. I started my first contract assignment for Microsoft through a staffing agency called Volt. From that day in 2005 to today in 2013, I have been unemployed for about half that time (three years I think), and employed only four of those years because I became disillusioned again on my second year doing software engineering on contract from the work I thought that software engineering really would be. Because of how underwhelming the work had become for me, my heart was simply not into forcing the acceleration of my own career like I have seen many of my peers that had done with award after award, and title after title that are all most likely their own project managers by now because most of them are in fact very good leaders.

As life has proven for me in this field, I am not a manager of other people, I am a lowly worker still producing the actual product subject to all management decisions. The prospect of Graduate School is appealing, but still to me in my experience it is only a mere continuation of more of the same at a higher level of experience. I suspect I’ll continue to use software engineering as a life skill, but also at the same time my plans are definitely taking a new turn with regard to our business we started while Jill and I were in Issaquah, WA at the time of 2009.

Thank you so much for sharing a memory of your parents, especially your Mom with me. I do not remember their names, but I do recall meeting again your Mom while she was the director of Thomas Edison High sometime between 1994 and 2000 during an open house of Thomas Edison High.  I pray that both your Mother and your Father continue to be well, be safe, be content with their love for each other, and possibly with their love for Christ Our Lord.

I cannot begin to imagine what you went through to back from Japan where you could not find advancement, to here in the United States only to find a completely different set of problems of its own most likely similar to what I needed to go through upon leaving the “safe” and “secure” phone company.

Concerning the game locality translation that you talked about, I did speak here to the people here in this office at Experis vendor for Microsoft where we are presently working on a testing application that is going to be meant to assist in game play testing to be used by the test assistant game play testers here at Experis on the Xbox 360 gaming platform. They said that the game translation for localization like you were doing before is just as big here as it was most likely in your last position. For game development and testing, this is huge to have on a resume for the Nintendo, Microsoft Xbox group, Wizards of the Coast, and similar game maker companies.

Once I got through my education for software engineering, the programming part of the gaming development and testing became so much clearer as to its need for the actual games themselves. Concerning the work-life balance issue that you mentioned, that fact is also extremely important for me also. Just about every private software engineering company you encounter will want you to work way more than eight hours per day, and are most likely companies that you want to avoid. I cannot tell you which ones, but I can tell you how to avoid them. On my public resume profiles such as careerbuilder.com, dice.com, and monster.com, I have specifically said to the agencies that hire me out such as Volt, Prithvi Catalytic, and Experis that I will not work any overtime more than eight hours per day will I am working on each of these software contracts.

Having done that, the time I have left each evening still leaves me enough time to:

A)     attend mass or bible study at night;

B)      attend school as required; or

C)      stay at home with Jill to watch TV, or to work on our business together.

In my experience, if you do not want to work on code 24/7, then you certainly do not have to by simply being careful who you choose most especially by asking them questions about who wants you for a particular project.

Taking to off to figure things out is definitely a good thing, and I will do my best to explain what Jill and I started in 2009 because we are not able to have children (still) yet, and after taking the time off for all of 2008, we came to the conclusion that we MUST find a permanent solution to solve what is also our money issues that would be with us for the rest of our working lives if we chose to simply taking things in our jobs doing software engineering and clerical assistance as they were.

In 2007, I decided with Jill’s help through research to learn to electronically trade stock option contracts instead of starting something on the side I thought was much more involved and I think time consuming comparatively such as real estate transactions for profit. I tried that for two years, and ended up breaking even from the very low capital money that I started with that I earned from previous work of about $500.00 USD. After giving up through frustration on that, I did some research on the top most volatile financial markets in the world that, again through further research, that actually have a possibility of paying us back many times over through consistency, and most importantly not giving up through fear if we were to lose some (but not all!) of what we started with because we were still in the process of learning. After all that in 2009, the market at the top of that list of high liquidity and profitability was for us came out to be the Spot Forex Foreign Currency Exchange global market.

Same as before with the stock option contracts: I tried system after system of profitably trading the spot forex to greater success, and ended up again with nothing by the end of 2009. In 2010, I began reading many resources as to what my issue may be. It turned out that the issue directly was me because of several disciplinary factors:

1)      I was not treating my trading like a real business instead of a side hobby,

2)      I was not playing by the rules, the real rules, of what actually makes up the spot forex market in how it behaves by definition. For example the fact of how news of any kind such as unemployment reports that come out monthly from the United States and Japan directly affects the gain or loss in value through either the weakness or strength of the US Dollar or the Japanese Yen in the currency pair of the USD/JPY.

I follow directly the trends that form the display of weakness or strength in the USD/JPY for example by watching where either of these currencies in their individual charts form pivot points either up or down in their individual movement. The straight/flat movement or pivot points we are able to see in these charts form what the industry calls support lines below the new trend price movement going up from where it went down, and also calls resistance lines above the new trend price movement going down from where it went up.

I learned this reliable technique from the one resource I had left to try called forexearlywarning.com.

From there I learned everything I need to know to trade the spot forex successfully using parallel and inverse analysis (very easy to practice after a few months), and also multiple time frame analysis (again very easy to practice after a few months). By using these two techniques combined with an online tool they have called the HeatMap, and also a non-US based broker called MyFXChoice.com that offers selectable spot forex account margin, I started our business that Jill and I have today called PIPs for Heaven, LLC. We started this endeavor with the same $500.00 USD we had before, and now has been multiplied many, many times over “shaken down, pressed, and over flowing” just as the bible said in many ways in Luke’s gospel and in Matthew’s gospel. We have had some setbacks and losses along the way, back as long as we stayed absolutely consistent with these techniques, then we always experienced consistent and reliable as income gains. I am only allowed to continue this activity on the condition that Jill and my prayers to God have explained to me, that we have written down in the business plan as conditions of operation, to mandatorily give back 10% of our withdrawals we take out from our profit gains, and also so far at our discretion when we are able to - our complete profit amount of the first successful trade of each calendar year we have to the charity of our choice in honor of our Blessed Mother Mary for giving us her Son.

Yes, I most certainly enjoy doing software engineering on various gaming projects and other development and testing, and even playing those video games like that still we enjoy from years and years ago. We also enjoy going out to 3D or IMAX films on very rare occasion we are not otherwise watching on our 3D TV at home. We go out on bike rides and short walks also that do not otherwise wear out Jill’s endurance to exhaustion because of her enlarged heart condition from when she was a baby that is now treated under control with her medication.

Thank you for best wishes of our website and photo gallery, it took literally years to put together and keep in a form that is well maintained.

I wish you the very best Brian, and the same to your lovely wife we sincerely hope to meet you both someday, and share even more of us you may not already know. Maybe not now, but someday perhaps, Brian my friend, I pray to also call you My Brother as a member of Christ’s Body in agreement with him, in agreement with the one who sent him to us, and in agreement with his Church.

Sincerely yours Brian my Friend, and may God Bless!

From: Brian Decker: Matthew's Friend

 

Greetings Matt!

It is an honor to connect with you as well. Sounds like things are going quite well for you which I am pleased to hear. Remember all our silly wise-cracks to each other back in High School? "Decker-ville" and "Klump-town"? We were nuts! Can't believe that was almost 25 years ago. Where does the time go?

Way to stick with God. He is the Man who loves us and knows all things. Software engineer eh? Wow. That is VERY impressive. It also takes a lot of guts (especially in this brutal economy) to be having your own business. Sounds like it is working out so far which is great! It's also fabulous that it is something you get to work on together with your wife. Great way to spend time together and strengthen your relationship too. The idea of starting your own business seems like a huge mountain to climb. Like anything, it is probably less difficult than it looks. I wouldn't know where to begin. It is inspiring to know that you have done it. Way to go! And now you are targeting graduate school! The good thing about IT and engineering is that they will be hot industries for a long long time. Your skills will always be needed somewhere. I figure you will do two years and get a Master's? Any specific plans on what you'll do with that degree once you get it? Use it with your business? Use it to spice up your resume? Or both?

I am doing reasonably well. My mother was the one who ended up taking over at the Tree and renaming it Edison. She was the director there for 5 years or so. My parents are both well and I hope the same is true with yours. I lived in Japan for 11 years and my wife and I (whom I met there as you can probably guess) moved back here to the US at the end of 2011. I was teaching English over there which was ok and I had some great experiences. I did not want to be a teacher the rest of my working life. And climbing any corporate ladder over there as a foreigner is HARD. So we moved back here (Spokane, WA). Basically a BIG career-change. I am still working to figure out what it is that I want to do next. My wife and I both took a job translating games into Japanese in Baltimore for about a year. There was no opportunity for upward mobility in that company. We aren't really east coast folk anyway. We like the west! So, we quit that job and headed back. We are staying with my parents for the moment which allows us to avoid spending money (thank God). As you knew before, I was always a game lover and so I considered getting into that industry. After research and experience, it seems to be a fairly high-stress job. Always working and no personal time (not healthy, at least not for me!). I LOVE games but am unsure whether or not that industry is the right fit for me or not. Programming would require learning C++ (which you know). Just sitting at a desk 24/7 working on code could theoretically get old. So many things to consider. In any case, it is important to find something you LIKE and can see yourself being content with for years to come.

I am currently spending all my time reading, researching, talking to people, etc... and trying to figure out what I want to do next with my life. It's a bit stressful not being sure what you want to do. Some people change careers already knowing exactly what they want to pursue next. Others (like me) stop their current line of work and aren't clear what they will do next. We are VERY thankful that we have the ability to take some time off and figure things out.

I would like to hear more about what you do and how you like it! Your resume suggests you have mostly worked in IT/Engineering/Software. How is it? Do you like it? I'm trying to look at everything that I at least THINK I would be interested in. Heck, maybe you might even have an idea or suggestion.

Do you ever play games anymore?

Great pictures on your website! Look forward to talking more.

Best to your wife and two cats!

Dear Lia my Beloved Sister:

Thank you so much again for such a marvelous time with you and your lovely family my dear Sister Lia!

 

I will treasure always the time that we again shared together, and most importantly our very enlightening conversations that we shared together such that we both have learned from one another...

 

Please tell Dalek that that a Universalist “in its primary sense, refers to religious, theological, and philosophical concepts with universal application or applicability.” This is true according to the Wikipedia Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universalism.

Please tell him that we also found that an Existentialist “is generally considered to be the philosophical and cultural movement which holds that the starting point of philosophical thinking must be the individual and the experiences of the individual”. That also being from Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Existentialist.

 

In my brother Dalek’s assessment of these two items of human thinking: I say “He is precisely correct in his studies of these two basic concepts.” More to the point, I was silently praying while looking for a particular answer from my brother Daleck when I put to him the question “What in your mind My Brother is the opposite of an Existentialist?”

I prayed very strongly that he would see where this is going, and based on the examples of the Universalist further down the page on Wikipedia that he would say possibly say to Jill, to myself, and to Dalek to himself possibly in his own upcoming belief might say “A Universalist, which is the direct opposite of an Existentialist, is a Christian”.

 

I know a statement like that is a big leap of faith, and I don’t mean to imply anything. I was simply pleasantly surprised in my conversation with Dalek that his studies has progressed that far. Perhaps later in life and time permitting, a leap of faith might come when needed or more commonly through personally felt tragedy. It sounded like this almost happened for you when you talked to Jill and I about your automobile accident that it changed how you look on life from that day forth – about how every moment is precious because we do not know the day nor the hour when our time in this present and physical life will be at an end.

 

I am so thankful for the time that we shared together my Dearest Sister Lia, and I look forward to spending more time with you and your family again.

I will try my best effort to have the photo gallery pictures and blog entry available for your family to look at as soon as possible at http://home.klump-pdx.com/ngallery and also http://www.klump-pdx.com/blog respectively.

 

Sincerely yours, and may God Bless!

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I wish to give my sincere thanks to Father David Brown and Deacon Charles Holden both from St. Paul Parish in Eugene, OR for the time we had to pray together on Saturday, July 1st, 2012.

I also wish to share my sincere thanks to Father Ysreal now transferred to St. Francis Parrish in Sherwood, Father Patrick McNamee, Father Peter O’Brian, Deacon David Hammes, and Carol Christensen all from St. Cecilia Parish in Beaverton, OR for all the love and encouragement they lavished be with in my Catholic instruction and ultimately to my Baptism by Father Patrick McNamee earlier in 2006.

All of you My Brother Priests and My Brother Deacons including Father Phil Wallace (God Bless his Soul to Our Fathers Arms in Heaven), Father Tom Belleque, Deacon Sam Basta, and Deacon Bill Haines all four who are from St. Louise Parish in Bellevue, WA in the Archdiocese of Seattle who all helped me so beautifully in my faith formation after I received Baptism from Father Patrick McNamee.

You all are having a very special hand helping me with my weaknesses and encouraging my strengths because through you all in my weaknesses it is My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who strengthens me.

Below is a picture of St. Paul Parish in Eugene, OR where I had my very special Confession with Father David Brown just before the Mass that day on Saturday, July 1st, 2012.

You can’t see it in the picture below of the front of St. Paul’s Parish in Eugene, OR, but the emblem above the door is a big cluster of crosses representing individual children of God, you and me, and at the middle of that cluster is the word “FAMILY” in very bold letters as us Our Lord’s Church Incumbent here on the Earth.

We celebrated the Holy Sacrifice of Eucharist in the Mass, and I had another very special and rare opportunity to spend a few minutes longer in conversation as contemplative discerning prayer again with Father David Brown and also with his assistant Deacon Charles Holden about my personal faith formation and possible journey very soon in this life into Holy Orders in myself also as a Prospective/Discerning Deacon in service to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as an even deeper part of our Holy Mother Roman Catholic Church.

Sincerely yours, and I wish you all God’s many Blessings my Brothers and Sisters in Christ!

Dear reader:

If you are not an ASP.NET junior web developer like I am, then you can probably ignore this blog post as this is a regurgitation of information you likely already know.

I was happily programming along one day on Wednesday, January 19th, 2012 at Intel where I am trying to finish an AutomationReportingWebApp asp.net web application for the Visual Computing group in their testing of Media Conversion Application performance testing when I hit a wall with my default cascading style sheet (site.css) not applying styles the class style templates I just defined.

It turns out from an article located here that we can NEVER leave the default style sheet site.css named as so, or the file will not apply the changes you make there even if you edit and save the file.

By renaming the site.css file to something else, then you are able to totally avoid this problem.

If your are still reading, then I am grateful that I still have your interest.

With that still intact, please allow me to reintroduce to you, dear reader, our single purpose for existing as we do to server Our Lord and Savior his cross that is his symbol we choose to pickup daily, to carry it with us as we go, and to follow him where ever he goes to serve and do as he wills:

The Passion of Our Lord Being Crusified

Remember how he died because of how much he loves me and of how much he loves you.

Nothing of Earth or of Man in Human Kind will ever measure up to God’s ultimate gift of his Son for us in this way.

Here is the short form of Our Lord’s interventions and guidances he has worked for Jill and I in our own lives these last 5 years:

As my story goes, that love asked of me with my wife Jill to remained unemployed from the end of 2007 to 2010 where I humbly served my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ’s Catholic Church at St Louise De Marillac Chruch in Bellevue, Washington.

During that time I also humbled myself to learn to trade stock and option contracts on stock to try with God’s Grace to rebuild some of our Earthly wages that we humbly and totally lost over the course of the 3 year period of ongoing unemployement that Jill and I went through a great deal of self rejecting suffering ourselves.

Stocks and Options on stocks also had to come to a close as we could not get them to be notably profitable within a certain amount of time for each trade position that we entered,

During this 3 year period, we also started practise trading a different currency market call foreign currency exchange aided with an automated trading tool called CommandTRADE FX. We tried that tool for a whle until we changed to a new trading platform called LightWave from MBT Software and the Wizetrade the same place that CTFX was also authored from.

Now instead of trading symbols like $SPX, $DOW, and $COMPQ, now we are trading symbols like:

USD = United States Dollar
GBP = Great Britain Pound
JPY = Japanese Yen
CAD = Canadian Dollar
CHF = Confederatio Helvetica (Latin for Swiss Confederation) Franc
NZD = New Zealand Dollar
AUD = Australian Dollar

On September 22nd, 2011, Our Lord Jesus Christ further gifted to us after we organized to form a business trading currency securities a way to permanently end paper trading currencies, and proceed with trading real money and not loosing even once except during times of human error,

Our gift of 100% success came from being gifted of great wisdom of how we are required to form our enterance and exit strategies by using a limit order only to enter ever order, and also using only the profit target and trailing stop portion of the TTO or targeted trailing stop, and NEVER actually using a downside stop loss.

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit:

Because of God’s gift to us that has made our business successful through the end of our lives and end of our days, we continue to be forever greatful in his debt. Still we can never hope to begin to payback our God for what he has done for us except with great love for him try through our prayers, eucharistic loving rememberance of him, and through our obedience of Our God’s most Holy Ten (10) commandments that we are to model our lives after.

Ah men, In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Sprit, Ah men.

Dear Mako, Robert, and dogy-dog Tessy:

Thank you for letting us stay in your home for a brief one week we stayed after we lost our home in Washington, got kicked out permanently from Microsoft, and sent running back to Portland, Oregon with our tail between our legs just like Tessy in this picure:

3 of us

We pray that we’ll see each other again hopefully this Easter at the Saturday Easter Vigial at 8pm at St. Louise Catholic church in Bellevue, Washington, and maybe even at New Years if we are led by the Spirit to cross paths again.

Take care, and God Bless!

You KNOW you are going to have a GREAT TIME at Xiu Xian Tea in Bellevue or Kent Washington when you walk in and see it’s owner some certain PEOPLE ->->->Mako Carlson<-<-<- LOOKING AT YOU like THIS!!!:

MakoAtXiuXianTea

You know for a fact that you will be IN FOR IT in such a warm and loving way as she takes you in as her friend to show you about TEA, and what joy it means to be her friend at her tea party.

Great as she is being a professional, I still cannot convince her about EXPERIENCING the MASS long before it begins in the morning, and several hours before she needs to open for the day. As you can see, there STILL has not been a reply:

Dear Mako,

 

St. James Cathedral the really big and beautiful church cathedral in Seattle has mass at a 8am on Sunday mornings, and also at 8:15am on Saturday mornings, and also on weekday mornings at 8:15am as well.

 

The mass starts a little bit later in the day at 9:00am in the morning on weekdays at our church St. Louise De Marillac at 141 SE 156th Ave, Bellevue, WA 98008. This mass is usually not accompanied by music except on Wednesday when we get to share mass with the children at St. Louise School.

 

Mako, would you please be willing to come to mass with Jill and I possibly on a Wednesday or Saturday morning and experience God Love with us?

Sincerely yours, and God Bless!

You and we can never raise above our persuasion.

The ONLY PARTS of the BIBLE that will COME TRUE for YOU in your LIFE and in MINE are the parts of the BIBLE that you and I BELIEVE.

There are at least 331 times the Word Of God speaks IF I act (out of obedience), then the corresponding prescribed law will result as understood in Isaiah 1:17.

Act in accordance to how Melchizedek gave God what is his as understood in Genesis 14:18–20

Your field is your income, your corners are your outgoing tithe. If you make your corners larger for God, then God will make your field larger as understood in Deuteronomy 14:22–25.

Obey God, test him, and see what he will not do for you in your life as understood in Leviticus 26:1–13, Deuteronomy 26:14, Deuteronomy 28:1–14. Doing the opposite for the help of ourselves results in the opposite of blessings as in Deuteronomy 28:15–69 and Leviticus 26:14–46. 

Something that I have can be traded for something that I want. By sowing tithes and offerings with expectation that more will come back from God to prove that he is there as understood in Malachi 3:10.

The seed offering you have will stay as it is unless you sow it, and allow it to die to bring about a harvest in your life as understood in Luke 6:38.

Anything given up for God in this life and in his name will be given back in this life a hundred time more, and inherit eternal life after this life is done as understood in Matthew 19:29.

Belief in how God loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but have eternal life, professes that God never lies, period, otherwise all his promises and the entire bible, his word, is made completely false as understood in John 3:16.

My personal belief in this Law of God I have come to understand as his Law of the Seed, Time, and Harvest.

This conviction I now have lead me to sow with expectation a very sacrificial $100.00 USD with our brotherhood in our Knights Of Columbus charity I know as Pennies For Heaven to train our Holy Orders seminarian vocations in the Deaconate, Priesthood, Brotherhood, and Sisterhood. The result I have traced as God’s reaction to my Seed is CommandTRADE FX (http://www.commandtradefx.com) which will continue to give for the rest of our lives…

Using God’s gift to first give back to him in thanks giving will provide an overflowing for the rest of our lives according to his word. Our proof of this is on the day of October 24th, 2009, our total equity (cash value) of our trading account was $2000.00 USD that we had started with after we had sown our Seed to God nearly 6 months prior to the day on Thursday, April 9th, 2009 after I had lost my job that December. Exactly 54 calendar days later on December 18, 2009, our trading account had doubled to $3999.64 USD.

Please take a look at the picture of our Trade Manager on that day in our software:

My Dearest Brothers Knights of my council St. Louise Overlake 4385:

 

I truly feel that Our Father God Most High is calling all three of us now in the Name above all names, Jesus Christ Our Lord, and through us the power of the Holy Spirit to make our Brother’s Round Table an Absolute Reality!

 

Here is what we must do (I cannot do this alone without your help!):

1.  Worthy Financial Secretary Trevy, I need you to order from Supreme four booklets #2632 entitled “K of C Round Table Booklet”, and hand each of us a copy of this. One for yourself to use, one for Brother Jorge Moreno, one for Worthy District Deputy Carmelo, and one for me (Matthew James).

2.  Each of us must read and understand the guidelines, bylaws, and instructions for having and coordinating a K of C Round Table possibly here at St. Louise. [My instructions are explicitly telling me that a K of C Round Table is almost always at a different parish, but for our Spanish speaking community here at St. Louise, we are going to make an exception to this “rule” to very lovingly include them with us.]

3.  Worthy Warden Brother Jorge, (this is the critical part) à I need your help to start building a list of names in our Parish that we can show to Father Tom. To do this, I need your help to personally one-on-one contact as many Brother Knights, Brother Spanish Speaking/Hispanic Knights, and any other prospective new member candidates who we could also initiate and get them to their First (1st) Degree also wanting to be part of this wonderful new Round Table!

4.  Once we have all the knowledge that we need, and a list of names as proof of Brother Knights and Candidates wanting to help our church and be good stewards in good service for our parish community as much as I do, then at that time it will be right for the four (4) of us to meet with Father Tom (with a booklet and copy of the list he can have), and ask his permission to officially form St. Louise 4385 Round Table of our Latin American and Hispanic Brother Knights under the support and direction of our council.

5.  If Father says “Yes, you may”, then Jorge with you we will together fill out form #2629 tha we have copies of, and send this to Supreme so that they know who is coordinating our new Round Table. Once we establish your guy’s activities as service to the parish, then we will annually fill out form #2630 “Annual Report KofC Round Table” and send to Supreme by June 30th of each year. Although, we don’t have to worry about form #2630 until we get to that point.

 

Guys, I know this sounds like a lot, but I truly do believe that we can do this.

Always remember that we are here to help each other and our church, no matter what.

 

Fraternally yours in Jesus Christ Our Lord,

† † †

Xiu Xian Tea is located in both Bellevue and Kent!

We do so love being greeted at Xiu Xian Tea that we must take a few minutes to sit down and enjoy the many teas, including sometimes the red teas, with all the wonderful people that happen to come by to try the teas as well before they buy.

  • Pros: Excellent Atmosphere to See, Smell, and try Tasting the Teas!
  • Cons: No shortcommings found PERIOD.
  • We always tend to over stock our intended quota of tea to buy because of how we know these rare and wonderful loose leaf teas will make us feel at home.

    Most especially wonderful, there is always a story to share about the teas and the ceremonies surrounding it.

    So drink Xiu Xian loose leaf tea for the love of your health, and then share that gift of good health with others who have not for love of their good health as well in our fellow man!

    Please believe me when I say that if you happen to like tea, then this place of the most rare, delicate, and affordable teas uniquely captures the tradition and storytelling about teas while having your tea party will put you on cloud nine just as God himself is there blessing each one of you.

    We had an absolutely spectacular time as if we were having tea together in Heaven as God continues to bless us, touch us, and provide for us.

    Sincerely,

    -Matthew James Klump (The Ku Ding Guy [6 or more thick heavy/bitter sticks])

    Below are three pictures I am treasuring from our Capital Campaign Ground Breaking ceremony for the new elementary school and faith formation center at St. Louise De Marillac in Bellevue, Washington.

    This was a 4th Degree moment I will not forget as the Seattle Arch Diocese Arch Bishop Alexander Brunette came to bless the ground where the new 50,000+ square foot building will be built as part of our 11 million dollar Capital Campaign.

    This beautiful spring day, we dedicated to God in natural wonder through Tulips of every shape, size and color.

    God’s architecture of these magnificent small pieces of engineering, and our symbol of Global Piece, give further testament to his immeasurable wisdom and limitless love.

    Question - How many ways would YOU examine a Tulip -

    To God We Give the Glory In All Things!

    We, the 4th Degree Knights of Columbus Assembly 1630 in Bellevue Washington, sincerely give our thanks in faithful prayer for allowing us to participate in this most holy dedication to the Protection of Life in all its forms at St. Louise De Mariliac in the Garden of Innocence. In this garden, one will find a very peaceful place to simply be and meditate on what life means before the Holy Family in their desire for the protection of mankind at the beginning of life, and also at the end of life.

    I hadn’t been a Sir Knight of Columbus for even a year, and I have already been elected to an officer position to stand guard as Faithful Outer Sentinel…

    Eric Iwasyk is our Assembly’s other guarding officer as Faithful Inner Sentinel that you see in this picture:

    Eric and Matthew Inner & Outer Sentinels

    Naturally, my beloved wife Jill could not stop giggling while see took this picture and hung our officer’s medals around our necks:
