Disciple Up Is Born!


What you see to the left is the new logo of my brand new website and podcast – Disciple Up!

I’m launching it today and am excited about this new avenue of ministry. I’ve been thinking about doing a podcast for about a year and a half now. It’s taken far longer than I had wanted it too but it has arrived at last.

Disciple Up is a Christian podcast devoted to helping empower disciples, to help believers learn how to think biblically, live biblically and to follow Jesus in a way that both honors him and reaches the lost and hurting world around us.

These are not sermons. If you want sermons go to the CCR page and there’s a ton of them there for you to listen too. Rather this is teaching in what I hope is a discussion type tone. I’m having fun and hope you will as well.

There are several segments in the show including the Disciple Up Low Down which, unlike the rest of the show, is a fully scripted editorial on that show’s topic. Since it is fully scripted I’ll be posting the scripts here on the blog for you to read.

If you don’t know what a podcast is or how to use one here’s a few tips:

  1. Think downloadable or streaming internet radio (not the best example but close enough.).
  2. Just go to Disciple Up.org, scroll down a bit and click the play button on any of the five episodes available.
  3. See below for how to subscribe in iTunes or on Google play if you’d like too. I, like all podcasters, how you will.
  4. Check out the Disciple Up Facebook page, like it, share it, etc. 

Pray for the show and me as well, and let me know what you think either on the Facebook page or at louie@discipleup.org.

A Bit of Audio From Dad’s Book

I haven’t been putting up anything here about my gaming because I know most aren’t interested. However below you’ll find my latest video embedded because of a computer glitch and what followed.

My little laptop has been having trouble with my video recording of late. Not sure what’s going on and I hope it’s not reaching the point where I’ll need to get a new one! Yuck on that!

I’m playing a scenario the US Marine invasion and liberation of Guam. My father was a part of that battle and writes about it in his book, Once A Raider. So when the audio of the first eight or nine minutes of the video was completely unacceptable I decided to delete that part and do a voice over.

Instead of just rambling about the game I chose to read a couple of excerpts Dad wrote about his experience in the first day and evening of the battle. He played an important role in that battle for Hill 40.

If you’d like to hear a little bit about that you can listen below. If you’d like to check out the book on Amazon just click here.

Camino Day 10

We had a pretty easy walk today but made some miles.  I’m in Atapuerca this afternoon and tomorrow shold be an ready walk into Burgos.

I had a short but great conversation wit some one today that made the day even better.  I also forgot to take pics with the phone so here’s a few from town.

My albergue 

Camino Day 10

Camino 2016, Day 9

This afternoon I’m in Tosantos after about 18 mIles or so.  Not quite as hot today but hot enough.  I had a horrible nights sleep last night, at the worst albergue yet.

This one looks better,we’ll see how tonight goes. For the first time I’m going to have to sleep on a top bunk.


My right side is still sore, that bed last night really messed it up. I’m sure it’ll be fine but keep it in prayer please. 

If all goes well I should be in Burgos in two days.  That is where my camino will end.  If I make it Monday then I’ll stay the night and try to get to Madrid the next day.  That would give me two nights and one full day there to rest and sight see before flying home. 

Here’s some pictures from today. 

The last one is a Spanish Pilgrim sha ring so things she’s carrying from her village during a break today. 

Camino 2016, Day 9

Camino Day 8

Another long hot day.  We did about 18 miles today.  I’m in Santa Domingo at a not so great albergue, but it’s ok. 

I fell today but twisted so my pack took most of the impact.  Bruised my knee but it’s ok, my back’s tweaked a bit too.

I also had to tape up more of my left foot,  but all is good.

Here’s some shots from today including my foot. 

Camino Day 8

Camino 2016 Day 7

I’m in Ventosa this afternoon.  We walked 8 1/2 hours and about 19 mIles today with two meal breaks. Very hot and humid. 

This albergue has way too many stairs and doesn’t do meals.  Otherwise is nice. 

My hips were bothering me today otherwise I’m doing well. Except for this runny nose.  Please pray it clears up.  I’m tired of walking across Spain leaving a slimy DNA trail like some kind of snail!

Tomorrow starts up hill and stayed that way for quite a while.  Here’s two pics.

The one above is the famous place where make crosses put of sticks above the highway. Mine is the green one of you can see it.
