Dear Friend & Partner,

I am writing this special blog entry on “New Years Eve” - which is also my 66th birthday.  By God’s grace, I have come to the end of another full and fruitful year of travel and ministry.  In the last 12 months of travel and ministry the Lord took me to Nepal, India, Hong Kong, Mali, Ghana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan, Zimbabwe, Haiti and Andros, Freeport and Abaco in the Bahamas.  And I was in most of these countries more than once in 2007.  Also, when I was not out of country, I was traveling and speaking domestically.  So it has been a very busy year of travel and ministry for the Kingdom - all made possible by your prayers and partnership spiritually and financially.
