Challenges and Blessings

Dear Friends,

Sometimes doesn’t it seem as if every time you turn around, you’re facing another challenging situation? Then, other times, God’s kind blessings are apparent.

Last week was a week filled with the Lord’s gracious encouragement and blessings.

So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? Luke 16:11 (Chinese)

First of all, the leaders of Compass from South America, Asia, Europe, India and North America met together for three days. I kept pinching myself over the privilege of just being in the same room with these godly, capable leaders. We spent chunks of time in prayer, and the Spirit of God had unusual freedom to shape our time and reveal His plan going forward.

When the leader of our Service Center in Orlando, shared, I was surprised to learn from Kelly Laughridge that we are receiving about 2,000 calls—a month! Many of the callers are from our radio audience asking for advice or wanting to be connected to one of our volunteer online Compass Coaches to receive assistance getting on a budget of getting out of debt.

Our Compass Coaches don’t receive any compensation for serving; they simply have a passion to help others learn and apply God’s way of handling money.

I’ve never done this before in a blog, but I wanted you to be aware of the cost to Compass for providing this service. We just added a third employee who answers these calls and helps connect the callers with the coaches. The salaries and other expenses at the Compass Service Center are met primarily by contributions. If you sense the Lord would have you help us continue to serve a growing number of these people in need, I would be very grateful if would pray about supporting this effort.

Warmly in Christ,
