“WHO FUNDS WHAT YOU DO?”
Recently someone asked me this question trying to figure out who I am and what I am doing. The question came from an unbeliever with whom I was sharing the Good News. She listened to the story of how God loves her. As a writer she is used to researching her subject prompting her to ask me who I am, what I am doing and how long have I been doing this. When she learned that I have a long history of putting smiles on young faces explaining that God loves them, she wanted to know who sponsors me.
I thought of you. Thank you for your faithful support which allows me to share the Gospel no matter where I am—even at a writer’s conference. She was impressed that God loved her so much that He would send someone to connect with her. No, she did not make a decision for Christ … yet. But, the seed has been sown.
This conversation was held during a lunch break. To my left was a young Russian man listening carefully to every word. Brilliant mind, he is a technology expert for a large company. Speaking to the lady who is close to my age with words she could understand, I changed the rhetoric with this young guy in his late 20s using the topic of robots. Then, he made a key statement, “I suppose robots will enable us to live forever.” His eyes widened as I described how he could really live forever. Pray that God will use this witness in both of their lives. Again, thank you for making it possible for me to share God’s message.
COSTA RICA PLANS
Stephanie and I will be in Costa Rica for our upcoming youth camp. This year we might have the privilege of connecting with their parents as well. Pray for this exciting opportunity to be held January 21-25, 2018 south of San Jose, the capital. Cris Vidaechea, our director in Costa Rica, is leading this venture and I will be speaking. Can’t wait!

CAMP MONTY UPDATE
Danijel Petkovski plays an important role in all that we are doing in Montenegro, a small country next to Albania. He leads the Niksic LIFE Youth Center which reaches students in Bible studies, outreach and discipleship. During Camp Monty he is very active not just with translation ministry for the speakers, but also, helping our director, Jimmy Compton, behind the scenes. In fact, Jimmy and Danijel make a great team as they serve together. Pray for the needs of operating this important ministry throughout the year. Yes, we need more partners to help carry on the work there. If you want to give please use the address mentioned in the previous paragraph and notate your donation for which project you want to help. Thank you!
