If you had a chance to read our Year-end Letter you will find that we will be giving all our supporters some special gifts. Hopefully, you will take the time to review the exciting news we have. We believe in accountability and the need to communicate with others as to how God has blessed us over past 37 years of ministry and where He is taking us in the future.

We have been intentional not to regularly use the weekly devotional as a fund-raising tool, but to remain faithful in providing God’s word. Occasionally, we are asked by some of the devotional recipients about specific aspects of our ministry. To that end, we are including a link for a special report on how God is impacting others through Men’s Ministry Catalyst.

One of our friends in men’s ministry has written a great book: The Intergenerational Church. This unique resource helps better our understanding about past generations and how we can begin to better communicate with younger people. I love his opening that states, “In addition to honoring the past, we are to look to future generations and take some responsibility for them. In Psalms 22, a Messianic Psalm, we read in verses 30 and 31 that ‘Posterity will serve him; future generations will be told about the Lord. They will proclaim His righteousness to a people yet unborn – for he has done it.’ It is quite apparent that we have the responsibility to teach, direct, and train the younger generations… ‘Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, O God, till I declare your power to the next generation, Your might to all who are to come.’ (Psalms 71:18).”

I found it an amazing journey to think about the distinctives that separate our generations: GI Generation, Silent Generation, Boomer Generation, Generation X, Millennial Generation, and Generation Z.

Love and many blessings,
