Some Statistics

Normally, raw statistics are not all that inspiring. I thought these were worth sharing though. This is a glimpse into why I do what I do. So far today, there are 24 people who have indicated that they've decided to accept Jesus as their forever-friend. And the day isn't over yet.

Bono Answers "Who Is Jesus"

I found a great video online recently where Bono answers the question of "Who Is Jesus?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOQClgNRoPc I think this is a great starting-point to talk about our faith as Christians with people who may not yet have made the decision to follow Christ.

Who do you smell like?

During our recent time at the Power to Change biennial Zone Conference I had an interesting conversation with one of our newer staff members.  He was telling me all about his favourite hobby restoring an old car.  His wife, apparently, doesn't share his same passion, referring to the vehicle as his "mistress".  She could always tell when he'd been spending time with "his mistress" because when he came in he brought with him a certain...
