Allen In Arms Exercise Marine Pfc. Freddy L. Allen, son of Raymond and Willie Allen of Goree, recent- l--y participated in "Combined Arms Exercise 3-82". He is a member of 3rd Battalion, 9th Marines, Camp Pendleton, California. His unit participated in live-fire exercises involving the use of tanks, artillery, tracked vehicles, air support and individual weapons. Live-firing exercises were conducted with the M-16 rifle, M-60 machine gun, mortars, the light anti-tank assault weapon and other an- ti-tank weapons. Conducted at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center, Twenty-Nine Palms, Calif., the training cul- minated in "Combined Arms Exercise 3-B2". It was de- signed to emphasize fire sup- port coordination between infantry, air, tank, artillery, mortar and anti-tank missile units. A 1981 graduate of Goree High School, Allen ~joined the Marine Corps :'in June 1981. ivan E. -Allen First United Methodist Church Living With Ourselves Jesus met a Woman of Sarnaria one day at Jacob's well near Sychar. (Read John 4:1-30) Jesus had sat down to rest, the woman had come to get water. Jesus went against the traditions of the time and asked the woman to give him a drink. They talked for a few minutes, the woman wondering why he had asked her for water. Then Jesus told her: "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, 'Give me a drink,' you would have asked him, and we would have given you living water." (John 4:10) Following a few more exchanges in the con- versation, the woman said to Jesus, "Sir, give me this water that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw." (John 4: ! 5) There isn't much informa- tion about the woman, but from what we are able to gain from the text, it seems the woman was avoiding the people in the community and that apparently she had no friends. Perhaps she secretly despised herself, the person she was; and she longed to be something more. She was lost. Oh, she knew her way to the well so she could get water, but for her, life was wasted and ruined. She had a deep thirst each day as she came to the well, but the water she drew would not quench the thirst she felt within. She felt separated from God and that estrangement brought iso- lation from other persons. It was only "in Christ" that she was able to find the way. The feeling of being lost is not foreign to most of us. We have our deep longings of the soul, a thirst that cries out to be quenched. But many per- sons cover up their "lost" feelings with vested suits, split-level living, feverish ac- tivity and/or sensational en- tertainment. It has been said: "Much of modern life if like an onion, peel it thoroughly and there's nothing left." The emptiness and losmess which we feel can be filled only as we experience the living presence of Jesus Christ in our lives and relationships. That day at Jacob's well, Get Your II 431 East Main, Munday Open 8 to 8 -- 7 days a week the woman of Samaria met Jesus and was made whole. She had apparently been married five times and was, at that time, living with a man not her husband. She had sunk to the depths, but as she responded to God's love, revealed in Jesus, she began to shed the old life and to put on a new life. Some have thought Jesus was tricked by this woman, but I do not think so. I believe he could see the "sin-stains on her soul", but he could also see her need and something of the person she could become. Jesus gave her;the "living water" that day, she was ready to receive it. On that day the nameless Woman of Samaria achieved a selfhood she longed to know and a deep cleft in her soul began to heal as God became a living reality for her. Then she left her water jars and went into the city and began to tell the people she had met a man who must be the Christ. God's love can flood our lives as we respond to his call and claim upon us. Many persons are searching for something or someone. That someone is Jesus, God's Son, he alone can give us this "living water". A person once said, "Modern people are like marbles in a bag, touching each other only on the outer edges." If that state- ment describes you in relationship with others, ask Jesus for the "living water" he alone can give. Then, like the woman of Samaria, you will tell others of Jesus and invite them to come to him. When we realize our con- dition apart from God, and accept the "living water" from Jesus, we will begin to be made whole. We will begin to become persons we can live with and will invite others to Jesus who is the Christ. **O*~t Choucair Listed On Honor Roll Omar Choucair, son of Mrs. Joe Choucair and graduate of Munday High School, has been named to the Dean's Distinguished List at Baylor University for the 1981 fall semester.
