I am taking a quick break from our worldview presentation to share with you a ministry update and an opportunity for you to be a part in this ministry.
Over the last few months, we have seen an increase in traffic to this blog that has me evaluating the next steps we should be taking for this ministry. What am I seeing?
If we look at the last year since I made a serious step of faith and starting migrating some my postings over from Blogger to WordPress, what we have seen is an increase in growth in our online outreach. What does that look like?
- Over 1200 followers receiving emails whenever we post a blog and it is growing in the same manner;
- Over 9300 visitors over the last three years and that number is growing daily and weekly;
- We have 58 email subscribers getting on board to help create our platform for more ministry opportunities and lastly, (I am learning how to use Mail Chimp)
- I am overwhelmed with gratitude to the Lord for those of you all over the world reading my blog. We are touching six continents all over the globe. The only place we are not reaching is Antartica, and that is because penguins cannot read.
That being said, I am coming to some conclusions. We see the Lord blessing our efforts, and we would ask that you participate with us to help us in the online facet of our ministry so that we can get the message out and hopefully reach churches in our “Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the uttermost parts of the Earth.” So what am I asking? I am glad you asked.
I want you to know that none of what you see on this website would be possible without you (your follow-ship, readership, subscriptions et al). Add on to that your prayers and support for our podcasts and viewing our videos on the Youtube channel and Video page. Have you seen our Resources pages? If you look in the right hand margin, you will see links to our Audio page, and other links bringing to book lists, youth apologetics resources, and more! We want to expand this site to give you even more resources, but we are asking for your help.
An Appeal for Your Help
I want to let you know that we are seeking to get out of credit card debt due to medical expenses incurred from two short hospital stays (in 2015 and 2016), and our main income needs to go toward those bills. We are doing well avoiding major medical expenses, but still are crawling. We want to get this ministry running and not crawling. That being said, I am asking for your help for this year.
In order for me to keep this site up and running, I am asking you to come alongside us and help us with a small gift to help us get into the next year. Keeping this website running at the level that it is at, it is going to cost us $122.00 by December 15th 2018 (for this current Plan and keeping this URL website address).
If you would pray and ask the Lord about being a part in keeping our online ministry going. We would appreciate any help you can give us.
If you find this website helpful and the resources we have on our links and resources pages beneficial, and would like to make a contribution, please CLICK HERE and make your contribution.

When you make your gift, please fill in your email at the bottom of the form and we will be sure to get the PDF to YOU.
Thank you for your service to the Lord and thank you for your partnering with us as we seek to change lives for the Kingdom. It means more than these words can express.
May our Lord richly bless you as you seek to minister those He brings to you!
Giving ’em Heaven,
