HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!
2008 Survey - This week!
doesn't sound too exciting, but it is extremely valuable - a survey! Just what you wanted to do - take your time to
complete yet another survey for someone.
I'm asking you to do just that. Take about 6 minutes of your time to complete an on-line survey for
Finishers Project to help us stay on course and provide the best possible help
for mid-life people looking for what God has for them in the future.
If you have
already done so, thank you greatly for completing the survey. If you have not, please take the few minutes
necessary this week to give us your
perspective. Thank you for being a part
of this movement which God has raised up to provide more workers for his
Harvest. If you have any additional
input you would like to communicate to us, please email me, using the link in
What's This About a Book on Finishers?
are true - yes, Lord willing, there will be a book published regarding this
unique movement called Finishers. The
first manuscript is completed, now the editing period begins. The current plan is to publish in the spring
of 2009, so it's a while before we'll see the "finished" product. (But you can order your advance copies for a
limited time at a reduced price! Well,
maybe not - since the publisher knows nothing about this offer!)
uses the stories of many "finishers" who have moved into a global impact
ministry, sharing the ups and downs of their journey and how God met them and
answered their questions and concerns.
Here is one short example:
"I retired from an engineering career in 1995 and in 1999, we joined a
ministry with which we have served in the most exciting ways! We have lived in
a half-dozen African countries, visited many European cities and we have made a
difference! This summer, we will head for The Gambia to work with a land-based
medical mission team, also associated with this ministry. We are both in our
60's and highly recommend such an opportunity to others. Oh yes, we are also
with Rotary International and through our local club, have been able to send
over 500 wheelchairs to Sierra Leone. We were able to help distribute them
there as well! Last year, our local Rotary club raised funds to construct 6
water wells in Liberia. We were able to help the folks of Gordee village
celebrate their new pure water source!!
What an exciting and fulfilling retirement!"
Helping Churchs Connect with Boomers
Tom Adelsman and Don Parrott will

Baby Boomers and how to help them connect with significant ministry roles. Check out these dates and locations and
