For those of you have father who is living or you are a father, I trust you enjoyed a wonderful Father’s Day. I sure did! But I missed my dad who passed away at age 81. One of the reasons I look forward to the time that the Lord calls me home is that I’ll be able to hang out with my dad once again . . . this time for all eternity!
Hospitality: Hebrews 13:2 says, “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.” I experienced an amazing example of hospitality this past week. I was returning home from a trip to Illinois when the weather between Kentucky and Florida became incredibly stormy. We were traveling on a small private plane, and the pilot said, “I’m not flying into that weather. Anytime you see purple on the weather radar, it means the clouds are 50,000 feet high, and there is a lot of hail. Just remember, there are bold pilots and there are old pilots, but there are no old bold pilots.” Thank the Lord . . . I’m really don’t like traveling in turbulent weather. 🙂
I called close friends, Jess and Angela Correll, from the airport in Danville, Kentucky, and immediately they dropped everything, drove to pick us up, feed us a delicious dinner, provided a comfortable bed in which to sleep and at 5:30 the next morning returned us to the airport. What started out as an unwanted interruption, became a delightful time. Whenever possible practice hospitality!
American Bible Society: In November of last year, the ABS approved a matching grant for Compass to develop its materials (for every $3 the Lord allowed Compass to raise, the American Bible Society would match $1). The 1st phase of the grant is set to expire in 10 days, on June 30th. Of the $255,000 Compass was to contribute, we have received all but approximately $37,951.34 – did I say approximately? Please pray with us that the Lord would provide the remaining amount by the 30th.
Materials: I’m knee deep in recording the revised and improved book, Your Money Counts. We’re in the final stages of editing the small group study notes for Money and Marriage God’s Way and Navigating Your Finances God’s Way. Our objective is to get as many of the materials in video and audio format as a supplement to the written materials to help those who prefer to learn visually or orally.
I am grateful for the opportunity to connect each week with you by this wonderful technology!
Warmly in Christ,
