A December Message from Life's Key

Good morning!  I sincerely hope that you had a wonderful time celebrating Thanksgiving last week, and that a joyous time awaits you as Christmas draws nearer.  Please continue reading as there is some important information below.

You will notice that this month's letter is NOT attached to this e-mail.  The reason is because I would like to encourage as many visits to our website as possible.  While we have made progress becoming more relevant with the search engines, there is much room for improvement.  Web site traffic helps in that regard, so to read the letter, please go to our site by clicking on the link below, and then click on 2016 under "Life's Key News".  It highlights a wonderful letter I received from Shawn in Ohio, so please check it out when you get a chance!

I would also like to inform you that our Christmas music is back!  I heard from quite a few people last year that they enjoyed having the music on in the background while browsing through either our site or other sites.  We have many more options this year, so if you are interested in that, here is another link you can use.  You can also visit the Library page on the site.

Finally, I would like to inform you that our website is getting a facelift!  The reason is that people use a variety of devices with different screen sizes to view our site.  This change will allow us to have a "responsive" website, meaning that the site will be able to collapse, expand, and stack based on the screen size it's responding to, allowing the design style to stay consistent between different devices.  Our new look will launch in the near future.  Here's a sneak peek!

What is the 2COR9 Project?

In 2 Corinthians 9 we get to listen in on a conversation Paul is having with the Corinthians about financial assistance he hoped they would give to the needy believers in Jerusalem. Paul announced the needs of the poor church in Jerusalem to the ears of various assemblies in Galatia & Achaia. He then made arrangements for collection, transport, and distribution of funds back in Jerusalem. ACM is attempting to follow the pattern of Paul by letting believers know of certain specific needs of commended workers. We are naming this effort after 2 Corinthians 9 (2COR9 for short). In an effort to respect the privacy of the workers we will not give their names unless you contact us and ask specifically. Each of the needs listed is connected with a worker or widow connected in some way to the N. American assemblies. 

Technology? The technology piece comes in as we use texting, social media and online giving to speed up the communication of these needs. Our hope is to also use the same technology to help divide up the weight of paying for these needs among a wider body of believers. For example, if 1000 people received a text message from ACM sharing about a $5000 need, and all 1000 gave $5, we could address the need quickly and without significant burden to a small number (i.e if 20 people gave each would have to give $250, realistically limiting the number of needs they could easily give to in a particular month. If believers wish to give more, they are welcome to do so. ACM will attempt to update believers with information about needs as they are met.

This month I met a Russian woman on the bus and was able to give her a tract in Russian. Her name was Oksana. I gave a bracelet to some parents for their little boy. He began to read it aloud with their help. I don’t have time for all the stories in a letter as I gave out 122 bracelets. One story that stands out was when I gave a bracelet to a collage art student. I was surprised that before I got off the bus she handed me a cartoon type drawing of myself that she drew on the bus. 

My favorite tract to give out is, “YOUR STORY, Do you know it?” written by a friend Paul Bramsen. It is a chronological, through the Bible, clear Gospel presentation. I give them out in English, French, Spanish and Arabic.

Paul later wrote a picture book called King of Glory. I have given a few of those in English, Spanish, Turkish, and Russian. Last summer after four years of work, he released the movie version of his book. Now he has released Edition 2, which is in English, Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Somali, Swahili, Spanish and Turkish. (A DVD will only hold 8 languages.) The movie can also be watched free on the Internet at www.king-of-glory.com. He will be adding new languages on the Web. I wanted to order a few of the DVDs to give to people like Connie my Chinese friend at the photocopy store and her two workers, Joe and Tina. He asked how many I could use. I said, “Five to seven”, as I quickly thought of a few people. He said he would send me 10. However, later a box arrived with 50! I am asking the Lord to put them in the right hands. I have given copies to Connie, Joe and Tina. I gave one to my mail lady, Angie, who really likes me to put tracts in the mailbox. I think she is Catholic. I gave one to my good Chinese friend, Irene, and one for the pastor of her Chinese church. (Her pastor, by the way, is Korean, so he will be able to enjoy the movie in three languages!) I am sending one to Ning my former Chinese student. I have seen Tracey, mentioned in my last letter, several times. I offered her the DVD. However, she said, “I don’t want to watch it.” Her tone of voice was as if she was afraid I would force her to take it. 

I hope I can give a DVD to someone who speaks each of the 8 languages. Of course I cannot give them to everyone I meet, but since it is also free on line I am now giving out a business sized card that Paul made to direct people to the web site. (See attachment.) He sent me about 500 cards, so I am giving them with the bracelets as well as to others. The bracelets and short tract are well received, but the movie gives the whole story for our culture today that often has no Biblical background. I hope to give a DVD to a few pastors that I know, to introduce them to this tool for sharing the Gospel. Thank you for praying!
