Pressing Toward the Mark
What Are you Aiming For?

Can you believe that a new year is upon us. When I think of making Goals for the New year my minds eye goes to to one of my favorite verses, Philippians 3:14, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Jesus-Christ. As Paul puts the past behind him He reaches for the Prize. In looking at Paul's life we should ask ourselves? How do we reach this Mark and Prize. Paul speaks of aiming for a specific target and as we set our goals for the new year we too need to aim for a specific target. So what exactly are we aiming to achieve? Paul's life shows us the power of the Gospel as He 1) Got It: Being saved on the Damascus Road. 2) Grew in it: Growing in Christ through the Word of God and 3) Gave it: As he made Disciples in leading others to Christ while befriending, teaching, and going with the converts to make more disciples. This is the Mark, or target, in which all Christians should be Aiming. In making application we see that our aim should be following Paul's path of 1) Getting it: Being saved 2) Growing in it: Learning through the Word and 3) Giving it: Making Disciples through witnessing, befriending, and investing our lives into others to reproduce this Christian life to others. When we Aim for this Mark we will see the Lord using us to achieve the Prize of more disciples. How about you? What are you aiming for in 2015? Let us learn from the life of Paul and join His Example in putting our past behind us and pressing toward the Mark with our Aim on making disciples of all Nations.

Thank You
My Personal "Thank You" 
"Thank You," to all those who are apart of this work as we had a record year for Webhits, Souls Saved, Bibles Distributed, Devotions Emailed, Bibles Downloaded, Audio Bibles Accessed, and Online Bibles Accessed. Thanks again, for everyone who Prayed, Supplied Funds, Made Visits, Answered Emails, Placed Phone Calls, Provided Bibles, Delivered Bibles, and Shared the Gospel. Your labor is not in vain as I receive mail every day of souls being saved and lives being changed. Let us be encouraged to press to the mark of continuing in the Lord, to do His Will, and His Work in these last days.
Looking Back
A Record Year:  
Wow, what a year in 2014. Record numbers across the board as we reached over 11 Million in web hits, Over 42 Thousand Bible Delivered, and Most Important Over 33 Hundred Souls Saved. Praise the Lord!!! In December we had another huge month for web hits receiving 1.43 million web hits. These web hits coupled with the contacts we make through e-Devotions, Church Services, and email correspondence allowed our Ministry to connect over 2 million times in 120 countries. Praise the Lord!!! Financially we had our largest year of Partner giving with Churches giving an average of 15 thousand a month as they provided the Bibles and Shipping for our Bible Requests. We also had specific donations to pay off our building this year along with a vehicle to help us perform the needs of this Ministry.  I never thought the Lord would use us in such a large way but we realize that it is Jesus-Christ doing the work. We Thank the Lord for what He is doing and again thank you for your prayers and gifts.

Looking Forward
A Vision of Growth: 
It is very exciting to see how the Lord keeps giving us more ideas to expand our outreach. The Lord has placed on my heart a Vision of Growth and to Help other Churches take the Ministry of Outreach we are doing and show other Churches how to use this tool. Being a Media Minister I want to help Churches reach more in their community using the tools the Lord has taught me. Please contact me if you would like to talk how we can help your Church or Ministry. We also will be starting many more outreach websites that address the questions of the lost and that help in discipleship. All these domains will give us a larger foot print on the web with the goal of reaching more folks with the Gospel. We are continuing to work on the Life Application notes that I send in our daily devotion to our commentary section of our Online Bible. This will make each Chapter of our Online Bible a devotion in itself with a Chapter of Scripture, Matthew Henry Commentary on the Chapter, and now my Life Application Notes all on the same page. We look forward to working on these ideas in the New Year !!
