Update from Glen Eyrie

A view of Pike's Peak from Glen Eyrie!

This week our Compass family is spending time together at Glen Eyrie in Colorado Springs for our annual staff conference. It has been an incredible week! I could spend hours sharing about how the Lord has used this time but I’m kind of tired so I will share just a couple of things that has really stuck out to me.

Most retreats I have been at are very agenda driven leaving very little room for the Holy Spirit to move and work throughout the time. This has not been the case this week. I genuinely fee that I am at a retreat; i feel refreshed, encouraged and have really sensed the Lord speaking to me this week.The time with people and the relationships that are being built have a genuine authenticity to them.

We have been blessed from hearing God speak through folks from our team in India and Latin America. We have also been blessed by the presence of Chris and Debbie Lecurto from Dave Ramsey’s Organization and Mark Biller from Sound Mind Investing. It has been incredible to see so many people with like minds and like hearts be moved by the Lord in the same direction.

I wanted to especially give a shout out to Kelly Laughridge and Dan Schilling from our Compass staff for organizing this event. Their work behind the scenes has been a great gift to us all.

Update From Howard 10/10

Dear Friends,

Where do we invest in this economy?: A experienced stock market investor just told me, “When I buy into the stock market, I no longer feel as if I’m making a well researched investment; instead, it’s more like a well researched bet. World economies and the market are just so uncertain and volatile.”  Well, Ecclesiastes 11:2 wisely counsels us to “Divide your portion to 7 or even 8, because you do not know what misfortune will occur upon the earth.” So, please diversify your investments . . .

Long Johns Packed: Bev and I are headed out to Colorado Springs—with 11 inches of snow on the ground—for our second annual Compass Retreat. It will be just a little different weather from the high 80s of Florida. Who chose the Colorado Springs location at this time of year anyhow? Oh, yes, it was me!

Please pray that our team of about 60, from as far away as India and Latin America, will have a terrific time together as we seek to grow closer to Christ and each other and hear His direction for Compass.

Your Money Counts going digital: You can now get the book Your Money Counts for your Kindle, and we’re beginning to work on getting it ipad and Android tablet ready.

Eternity: The death of Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs, once again brought eternity into sharp focus for me. I’m among the many who admire Apple and the amazing advancements in technology that Mr. Jobs orchestrated. This ministry and my family have personally benefited greatly from his  contributions to our electronic lives. But as soon as I learned of his passing, my first thought wasn’t about his accomplishments, it was about his eternal destiny. I can only pray that Steve Jobs knows Jesus Christ as his personal savior. Jesus told us with unmistakable clarity, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.”

May those of us who know Jesus, be grateful that we are children of God. And may we be committed to pray for and tell those who don’t yet know Him about the good news of the Savior.

Warmly in Christ,
