I don’t know about you, but I just love ringing in a brand new year.

But that’s not the only reason I love New Year’s. For me, it’s all about a fresh start!

Dear Friend, Have you ever noticed how it’s possible to be surrounded by people, even friends and family, and still feel like no one really sees you? Your deepest dreams, your inward struggles all remain hidden from view. Deep down, we all have a desire to be understood—for people to really get us. We long […]

This month, we prepared a newsletter to highlight several snapshots from our travels. You need to hear a couple amazing stories from places like Cambodia, Hungary and the Philippines. You need to see their faces, and so we included a couple amazing pictures, as well.

Crossing borders into unfamiliar territory bears risk. As I travel into countries where governing authorities are hostile toward Christians, I am fully aware of the evil spiritual forces working against me.

My friends warned me long before my son was born. “Nick, once you look your little boy in the eyes,” they said, “you will never be the same.”

Dear Friend,When I rolled into the empty stadium in Hungary before our public event Friday afternoon, the scene took my breath away. I stared at the rows and rows of endless empty seats cascading down toward the field where I would speak later that night.I sat there for a moment and thought about each person […]
