Dear Friends & Family,
It has finally begun to get cold here in the Californian desert; it is a much anticipated break. Change is always good, especially when improvement is the desired end. That is exactly how I feel about our current project. Youthbytes is going 100% digital in 2015. We are in the process of building a yearly, video-based, devotional APP for young adults, available for IOS and Android platforms. This will put all of our content, videos messages, teaching notes, prayers and scripture insight in the palm of every teen, in 5 key languages: English, Mandarin, Portuguese, Spanish and Korean. This yearly devotional will not only provide the truth of God’s Word in a clear and concise form, but will also bring a touch of geography, missions, travel and humor to the lives of all who engage it. Making our material available digitally enables us to interact with young people in a way that they are very accustomed to and comfortable with. I am confident that this move will give us access to teens in nations we could have never reached by traditional methods.
It has been a great end of summer with many projects being completed and others now being started. We will begin production next month here in California at the Salton Sea, also known as America’s Dead Sea. This is a message that I have wanted to create, explaining what happens to a generation when they embrace an attitude of entitlement. It is going to be an eye-opener!
We just released our latest YB DVD entitled “Lost Empire” filmed in Siem Reap, Cambodia at the Angkor Wat complex. This powerful message exposes why people’s visions and dreams can be destroyed and explains what we can do to resist these evil forces in our lives.
I will be in Brazil this month holding meetings around the nation. Please keep these events in your prayers, as I need all that I can get!
Thanks again for standing with us. If it were not for your faithful support and prayers, we could not continue our global advance!
