Guest Map is working... add your "pushpin"

A guest map has just been added to the web site. Look toward the right side of the web page under "Links" and you'll find the link to the map.

Once you're on the map, you can pan & zoom in & out by clicking the buttons near the top left of the map. You can also click & drag the map to move it around instead of using the up/down/left/right buttons on the map.

Using the buttons in the top right corner of the map, you can switch between a map view, satellite photo view, and hybrid view with both.

Depending on your area, you might be able to pick out your rooftop... I did.

To add your "pushpin" marker, just click once on the map. Type your name, a short message, pick a marker color, and then click the "Place" button. There's even a place for you to enter your own web site address if you've got one and want to share it.

**The Paypal link on the map does NOT send money to us or my cousin. It would go to the guy that made this Google-based guest map program (which my cousin then customized it for us). Contribute if you feel lead to do so.

We tried the map,too, with no success. We just want to be counted as one of the hundreds of families fervently praying and 'pulling for denise'.

Remember, Phil, God is good and merciful. May He grant you peace and strength.
In love and prayer,

Just wanted to let you know that my husband and I are praying for Denise and your famiy. We are from Fresno Ca. and we will put out pushpin on the map as soon as I can figure out how to make it work. May the Lord shower you with healing, peace, and comfort, as you continue to trust in Him and allow His light to shine through you. You are a blessing to many. Phil, don't worry about being strong, just continue to allow His strength to work through you.

I've had a few times where the server is not responding due to the load. It usually comes up within a few seconds after hitting reload.

Here's my instructions on how to use it...
Drag the map back and forth until you have your location centered, then zoom in a little. Repeat this until you've found where you want to place a marker and click (give it a moment). It will popup a little form asking you to leave your name, a message, a link and choose what color marker you want to leave. The link field you can leave blank. You can click satellite mode in the top right if you want to be sure you're marking your house exactly. The hybrid mode is a mix of both views that will show you a satellite view with street names overlaid on the map.

If you're still having problems, let me know and tell me what type of browser you are using. I can add a pin for you if need be.

Phil,

We have kept up on Denises's condition since July. I know you hve been inundated with mail and probably phone calls. Rest assured that we and many others at DFC are praying for you guys. We have to get together for some salsa and ice cream! Jim & Linda Thompson
