VOLUME 11 - 2003


Every God-direction is road tested.
Everyone who run towards Him makes it.
Psalm 18:30 The Message
When the young Forrest Gump was being taunted and teased for his difference, inability and slowness – he tried awkwardly to run away from his tormentors. Time had allowed his legs to grow stronger. And as he was encouraged by his “best good friend – Jenny” he ran faster – the braces that restrained him fell off. He was RUNNING! Like Forrest, I’ve found over time and with the encouragement of faithful friends like you, just how far and how fast I can go. In this special Summer Edition – I hope to show you how our “race” is going. To tell you, through words and pictures, what I’ve seen on the road: the Harvest is ripe, our ministry financial needs are great – but God is greater still! Africa, Russia, Bolivia, and the Joni and Friends Camp for families affected by disabilities – four “races” run – two (Russia & China) to go!
Do you see what this means – all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we’d better get on with it. Strip down, start running – and never quit! Heb 12:1 The Message
