Staff Devotions: Loving Our Neighbors...Globally

Samy

A few months ago, during NRB at Opryland, a charming fellow popped into the Ambassador Hospitality Suite and indicated he wanted to speak to someone about his organization.  When we learned he was actually a "neighbor" to AAA in Irvine, we planned for Samy Tanagho to sit down with us for a longer chat once we all returned home.

Not long ago that visit transpired ... and our team was captivated by the extraordinary life story of this Egyptian attorney who came to Christ as a young adult and whose life course was re-directed from a successful legal career into an ...

Why Haven’t You Prayed Yet?

ttpmayWhen was the last time you made the choice to call out to God in the midst of a hardship?

For me, I called out to God several times during my recent season of wedding planning and tough family circumstances.  However, there were even more times during this season when I failed to do so and let the weight of it all remain on my shoulders.

Global Outreach Day is May 28th!

globHow often do you share your faith?

In a recent edition of "Making Your Life Count", musician, John Schlitt, speaks to the importance of sharing our hearts with others.  He shares:

"We only get so much chance to bring across messages we believe."

John continues to talk about a message that's important to him, which is the gospel of Christ.  When we see through the eyes of Christ, there's so much to talk about, sing about, and change.

John's testimony reminds me that the opportunities we're given to share Christ with others are a gift. No ...
