Two years ago we established Seven Resource Centers that now serve 222 rural evangelists who have NO visual resources to reach unreached people.

• Moving Forward, Stepping UP

Moving Forward, Stepping UP Sharon and I took an Alaskan Cruise this year for our vacation. Of course, the Holland America Cruise Ship Zuiderdam was just huge.

• Camp Relational?

Camp Relational? I had the opportunity to minister in a children’s camp in Alberta, Canada called Living Springs Camp located about 40 miles southeast of Edmonton.
