A Very Blessed New Year To You!

January 1
As we close the door on 2018, Debby and I want to say "thank you" to wonderful friends and partners like you who made this our most successful year of ministry. 

Below are some of the highlights from 2018.  

1. We rescued another 354 children from Romania's state-run orphanages, the streets, and the sex trade, and placed them into loving foster families. 

2. Our team of social workers delivered 490 "Christmas Parcels" during the month of December with clothes, food, toys, and books, to our poorest foster families. 

3. This fall we purchased and installed eight Mitsubishi HVAC systems for the 3rd floor where we house our littlest ones – birth through 3 years old.

4.  376 children attended summer camp in 2018. They spent 12 days enjoying sports, arts and crafts, dance lessons, day-trips to the pool and the mountains. They loved it!

5.  At the beginning of the new school year, we provided toys, puzzles, books, pens and pencils, and a large supply of paper to the local elementary school in Carani. 

6.  We continued our outreach to prisoners, and distributed more than 100,000 copies of The Word For You Today through a network of 280 chaplains in county and state prisons. We just had a door open for us to distribute 250 devotionals each quarter in a federal prison in Arizona. 

7. The Word For You Today is now in 129 countries and 25 languages. We are conservatively reaching over 100 million people daily via our television broadcasts, radio broadcasts, social media, apps, and print. God has opened doors to take His Word into Latin America, Cuba, China, India, Russia, Belarus, and the Ukraine.  

It’s because of your prayers and faithful support that we have been able to make an impact all around the world in 2018 – thank you!

As I was writing this blog – this Scripture came to mind:

“And this is the boldness we have in God’s presence:  that if we ask God for 
 anything that agrees with what he wants, he hears us. If we know he hears 
 us every time we ask him, we know we have what we ask from him.”   1 John 5:14 NCV 

Notice the word boldness!  As we begin 2019, some of you may be facing challenges in your family, your job, your finances, or your health. We want to stand in agreement with you and ask God boldly [with confidence and assurance] to answer your prayers in 2019. 

Take a few minutes and write down your needs on the enclosed prayer sheet.  Our entire staff will be praying for you during the month of January. 

Every year the first check Debby and I write is to God’s work. For us, it's an expression of gratitude for His goodness in the past year, and a seed of faith for the things we are boldly asking Him for in the coming year. 

As you walk through the door of 2019, we invite you to join us and demonstrate your faith by sowing a seed of $2,019...or $201.90...or $20.19. As long as it's your "first" seed and your "best" seed, be assured God will honor and reward you for it. 

I look forward to hearing from you this week.
