As I write to you today Cindy and I are in Temecula. I drove her back here last week and am planning to fly back to Colorado this Wednesday November 9th. Cindy is back settled in at our daughter’s home here and will begin looking for a home to rent or buy as I wind things down back in Colorado. I have a few speaking assignments to finish and am planning on moving out to be with Cindy before the end of the year. Please continue to pray for our home to sell and the Lord help us settle into our new home and responsibilities.
Last Saturday I had the privilege of speaking to the Centerpoint Church men’s breakfast here in Murrieta where our daughter’s family attends. This is one if the largest churches in this area and they brought their two campuses together for this event. It was a great gathering and I brought a message on developing an intimate relationship with Jesus. There were 10-15 men who gave their heart to the Lord and many others who made commitments to get closer to Him in the spirit of (James 4:8). I am looking forward to working more closely with their men’s ministry team in the future.
Next week I speak for my friend Bill Anderson at his annual Leadership Development Council (LDC) in Colorado Springs at the beautiful Hideaway. Then, on Thanksgiving weekend I will be in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada for a weekend with Beulah Alliance Church. This is one of the largest churches in Canada and they are expecting over 500 men at the Saturday event. I will also have the privilege of speaking at all of their weekend services that are broadcast to multiple campuses.
On Monday the 5th of December I will be attending my last CEO breakfast in the Spring’s and then on the 8th I have been asked by my friend Dwight Johnson to bring the message for the Men With A Purpose Christmas Banquet. This unique gathering of men has been a real blessing for our community and on this occasion the wives are invited—it will be festive for sure. Cindy and I have fond memories of addressing this gathering in San Diego years ago and brought a special message on marriage. If you are in the Colorado Springs area and would like to attend please contact me for more information.
As of this writing I am planning to move out to Temecula sometime after the 10th of December providing we can secure a temporary place to rent or stay until we sell our home and decide where to settle in.
Cindy and I want to encourage you to please pray for us during this time. As you may suspect, this Christmas will be a little different. One of the more special things we love to do is decorate and entertain during the holidays and while this year will be special as we celebrate with family—it is not the same when you are between homes.
It is also going to continue to be trying financially as we cannot afford to rent in Temecula and carry our home in Colorado at the same time. In addition, we also need some strong year-end gifts to come in as most ministries like ours really count on them to get through the December season. Please consider these points of prayer and also helping financially as you are able. I have included the information from last month regarding some creative ways you may want to pray about giving. Please also be on the lookout over this next week as I am sending a special brief video announcement outlining the exciting His Kingdom Funding program that will help us with our effort to reach out to rescue missions and prisons.
Here are a couple of creative ways you can help us;
Save this link http://smile.amazon.com/ch/84-1275142 and go to it for all your Amazon purchases. It takes you to your sign in page and changes nothing on your end but Amazon contributes a percentage of every sale to On Target.
Also, you can sign up a credit card through His Kingdom Funding and it will round up every sale to the next dollar. The contribution then goes to On Target minus a 10% administration fee. Click here http://ontarget.hiskingdomfunding.com/ and be sure to watch the videos for instructions.
Cindy and I love you dearly and pray God’s richest blessings upon you and your family.
Helping men become all that God intended,
