Steve Sappington CommunicationsAugust 2012

Happy August, everyone! For anyone receiving this for the first time, we probably connected over the past month via Facebook. I send out a monthly newsletter. If you don't enjoy it, you can unsubscribe below.

This month's newsletter will be brief. First of all, I have recently been using Skype more frequently, and it has been great. I've been able to visit much more frequently and clearly, for example, with my friends in Guinea, West Africa, whom I went to see last year. If you have a Skype account, please email your ID to me at

I am putting together a seminar to be entitled something like "10 Things Christians Can Do to Prepare for the Future." I will hold a seminar here in Waco, but if you live somewhere else, let me know if you'd like to receive the information, and we can do a webinar. These are strange times in which we live, and we all need to be prepared for the various physical, financial, and spiritual scenarios that could occur. Also, if you have a topic you'd like me to cover during the seminar, please email it to me.

I am hoping to put together funds for another Africa trip. While there, I hope to conduct several ministry activities such as a basketball clinic at which we would give each child a basketball. If any of you know of a sports foundation that makes grants for efforts like mine, please let me know how I can contact them.

Thanks for all your kind words and prayers regarding our ministry and these newsletters.
