Wee-wee-wee! All the way home! A friend was gracious to provide us access to an airplane to fly Bev and me, our two children, one daughter-in-law and 2 year old granddaughter to spend a day with my 94 year old mom. What a trip! From the moment the engines started warming up—to take off—to reaching cruising altitude, all that our granddaughter could say at the top of her lungs was “Wee-wee-wee!” The rest of us, of course, were egging her on by clapping and hooting. Lots of precious memories and a very special time.
All the way to southern California tomorrow! On Tuesday I’ll be leaving early in the morning to visit two of our very capable Compass field team and their key volunteers in southern California. Drs. Sid and Donna Ward serve the Ventura area, and Jim and Kathy Sullivan serve Orange County. Would also appreciate your prayers as I also will be speaking to about 60 Kingdom Advisor financial planners at 7:30 am Pacific time on Wednesday. You know you’re getting older when: I can remember the Sullivan’s daughter was a new born when we first starting working together, and next year she’ll be starting college.
Dave Ramsey’s “The Great Recovery” Good friend, Dave Ramsey, is initiating an effort to encourage church leadership to help train their congregations to handle money God’s way by giving generously, spending wisely, getting out of debt and saving. Dave and I both completely believe that the financial challenges facing our country will never be solved by politicians alone. Instead, if God’s people become faithful stewards of what the Lord entrusts to them, and teach as many others these truths; then, I don’t know if we’ll change the economic history of our country, but we’ll change the economic history of a lot of individuals.

2 Chronicles 7:14 reminds us, “If my people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” May you and I be people who do just that.
Love in Christ,
