Every Christian parent is faced with the same dilemma: how do I pass my values on to my kids? And for those of us involved in world missions, how do we get our kids involved? This month there is a good article in On Mission magazine on how to help kids "catch the vision". Worth a look.

I usually limit the posts on this blog to things having to do with my work as a missions pastor. From time to time, however, I feel obligated to use my enormous influence to promote other things. On September 30th the movie "Courageous" will be released (visit the movie website here). Courageous is made by the same folks who brought us "Fireproof". I understand that the theme this time is fatherhood. Now, the good Lord knows I've done my share of complaining about the corrosive effects of pop culture, and especially TV/movies. But it's better to light a candle than to curse the darkness, or so I'm told. So I post the information here with the hope that many people see Courageous, and that much good is done by it.

Planning for the upcoming Perspectives course on world missions continues, and we're trying to get the word out. On Wednesday October 19th there will be a free breakfast to introduce pastors and other church leaders to Perspectives. Please let your church staff know. I'll be happy to give you more info if you need it.

If you are considering going with us to the Dominican Republic next June, you'd better get on the stick! Several people have told me recently that they are interested in the trip, and space is limited. For more info, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

In January we started offering English classes at FBC. It was our first time out of the gate, but it went very well. After a summer break, we resume our English classes Sunday evening at 6 p.m. The classes are free. If you know of someone who may be interested, send 'em our way!
