Trust you are drawing more closely to Christ as you spend time in God’s word and in prayer!
Here’s what happening at Compass:
Curry anyone?: Our Global Managing Director, Dave Rae, and I are off to India today for 10 days. I am sooooo excited to visit this great country! India is 1/4th the size of the USA with four times as many people. A frequent traveler to India told me many cars have two drivers—one who actually drives and the other who navigates the wild streets!
There are 22 major languages and 1,000 minor ones. It’s estimated that approximately 6 percent of the country follows Christ. In the large cities there is a growing middle class and growing debt. This is the time for use to serve India!
Compass India is a key member of the Compass Global Alliance. It is served by world class leadership. Dave and I will be visiting five large cities: Mumbai, Chennai, Madurai, Kolkatta and Delhi. Please pray for us—that we would return in good health and that the Lord would allow the trip to be exceeding fruitful and pleasing to Him.
Just one more: Our team around the world has made the decision to mentor deeply at least one person a year who the Lord has called to this financial area of ministry. I am so thankful that Christ has brought two men to me this year: Doug Allen and Ken Battles. They are very faithful brothers and have already had a significant impact in the lives of many. We are going to read through the Bible in a year, meditate on one key passage of Scripture every two weeks, read some key books, hang out together and pray for each other daily. They have made the commitment that after our year together, they in turn will mentor one a year for the rest of their lives.
Wanna take the Navigating small group study on-line?: We are sooooo close to launching this! People anywhere at any time will be able to take the Navigating study and see the others in the group even though they may be thousands of miles from each other.

Hebrews 6:10: The passage has been a huge encouragement to me recently. “God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown him by helping his people, and continue to help them.” Think about that for a moment. The Lord of the universe will not forget the work you do for Him. And when you help His people, you are showing your love for Jesus! Wow!
May each of us help the Lord’s people today.
Love in Christ,
