Witnessing at the Olympics
I was glad to read this great report from AIG on their evangelistic efforts during the Olympics. “The local residents and the international sports fans who assembled in Vancouver were very hospitable to our witnessing team.

This book, geared toward exploring the Bible with very young children, looks quite interesting. “Beginning with God helps parents with young children to explore the Bible with their child. This book provides a simple way to start your child in a regular habit of reading God’s Word and growing to know God, who loves them.” Visit the link to download samples, etc.

It’s a Conspiracy
This is good for an early-morning laugh.
