God at Work

How does one know when God is at work? A good sign is when things happen that one has no control over. Paul planted churches. Apollos watered them. But it is God who causes the growth. [1 Corinthians 3:6-9]

This Asperger Ministry is a seed designed to bring forth fruit for the nourishment of two different cultures – neurotypicals and Aspies – mainly those within God's family. Its seed is as small as a mustard seed. [Luke 17:6]

There are multiple Apollos' to water this ministry. God's timing is perfect, but sometimes it seems He acts surprisingly fast! Ten days after this ministry began, God worked anonymously.

Last Friday, February 13, the Asperger Ministry received an e-mail from the producer of Live From Seattle with Michelle Mendoza on KGNW 850AM radio. It was an invitation to do an interview about Aspergers, what it is, and about the Asperger Ministry on Wednesday, February 18, 2015 at approximately 4:50pm PST/7:50pm EST.

Wednesday, February 18, 2015 is International Asperger's Day.

The outcome of this interview will be posted on Friday, February 20th.

The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. [2 Corinthians 4:4] However, faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. [Romans 10:17]

Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. [Romans 8:5]

This ministry understands the unbelieving mind.

International Asperger Day

Hans Asperger was born on February 18, 1906. February 18th has become International Asperger's Day in honor of this man who identified a certain breed of humans like himself. He had difficulty finding friends and was considered a lonely, remote child. He died on October 21, 1980 at age 74. His work on Asperger's syndrome didn't become popular until a year after he died. Most things that remain famous start doing so after the author or artist is dead.

Postscript added on 1.19.16 – For those who are interesting in getting a highly detailed and accurate eye-opening account of the history on Aspergers, read the award winning 544 page book by Steve Silberman titled NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity. He doesn't say as much about its future as he does about its past. However, reading the history informs readers enough for them to get an excellent perspective of how autism and Aspergers is handled by society. The first edition came out on August 25, 2015.
