Not long ago Lelah and I were teaching a group of folks some of the “How To’s” of reaching out to those in their world. One of the things I communicated to them was that all around them in their neighborhood and their workplace there were people who did not know Christ, but these same people might be open to relationship with others.

Norma is one of those people whose appearance gives no clues to the difficult road she has walked. Her sparkling eyes, tall slender figure and graying hair belie her battles with cancer, with confusion, with how to live.

God gave me Numbers 14:24 as a special verse for my last birthday: "But my servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit and has followed me fully, I will bring into the land into which he went, and his descendents shall posses it." My desire for the past forty years has been to have a spirit like Caleb's, and I feel the Lord is calling me to keep moving forward more fervently in this area as I get older. I want to help others become like Caleb as well in their love for the Lord Jesus.

Scott and his brother Rich come from a Jewish heritage. Rich lived in a different city and accepted Christ first.

When we explained the Gospel to Sarah, she too believed in Christ. So the Gospel moved from Rich to Scott to Sarah.

What does it mean to "live" in your neighborhood? In this age of garage door openers, fences to separate houses and a hectic lifestyle how do we live in our neighborhoods in such a way that our neighbors get a complete picture of the good news of Jesus? Is it just a matter of getting them to our church so they can hear a message from the Bible? Is it bringing them to a crusade at a stadium event? These may be very good things if the timing and the setting is right.
