Dear Friends,

Words cannot express the excitement of meeting the richest people in the world! In comparison Bill Gates is a pauper. These wealthy men and women don't carry their riches---they send it ahead. Imagine looking into the eager face of a brother from Zimbabwe who says, "I am so blessed to be here. The man who paid my way will require me to work only two years to pay him back for the trip!

Never in my life experience have I been surrounded by this many Christians who are so focused on one purpose---to glorify God by bringing the message of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.

These 12,000 evangelists and pastors, representing 205 nations, outnumber the countries represented at the United Nations! Not only that, decisions and strategies laid here will have a greater and more lasting impact on the people of the world that all of the mandates and decisions ever made by the United Nations.

Every afternoon when our booth opens, a wave of God's precious ambassadors washes into our booth. Five of us represent The God's Story Project and Eden Communications. All afternoon we explain the content and multi-uses and language availability of God's Story. We take applications from those who have no money but who desperately desire to use both God's Story and the creation evangelism videos produced by Eden Communications.
They quickly grasp the value of a video of the Bible in their own language that can be used for evangelism and discipleship.

Rachel, our daughter, explains the "Evangelist's Backpack" to the sea of amazed faces. Often we see eyes well up with tears. Can you imagine the incredulous expression and the longing on a man's face when it dawns on him that a tool exists which by solar power would enable him to take God's Story into unreached remote villages to deliver the Gospel?

To give you an idea of the hunger and the need for evangelism materials let me share this. On the first official conference day, Sunday July 29th, we personally interchanged with and received applications from *500 evangelists!

After seeing a demonstration of God's Story, over and over the brothers from India, Africa and South America burst out with, "Sister, with a copy of this video I could reach so many more for Jesus.

We tell these evangelists that we came to Amsterdam by faith. We explain that we wanted to meet the men and woman of the world who work on the front lines of evangelism, many of whom risk their lives to tell about Jesus. We also tell them that we do not have money in our pockets to send them videos and we know that they do not have the money either.

We tell them, "The same God who parted the Red Sea and who gave you eternal salvation is the same God we must seek to provide our needs. If you NEED these videos or if you NEED a solar powered VCD player and disk of God's Story to reach remote villages, we must claim together the promise of Philippians 4:19, "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."

Just yesterday in my devotions I read in Haggai 2:8, "The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts."

One of the many joys of this conference is being able to place a cassette tape of God's Story into the hands of these precious people. I say to them, "The price of this cassette is the same as the price of your salvation---someone else who loves you paid for this!"

Thank you my friends for making possible the opportunity to meet and equip evangelists. We will be coming home with about *3,000 written requests for videos and hundreds of requests for the solar powered "Evangelist's Backpack. In the flesh I am scared. There is no way I can do this. Only by a miracle of provision can we respond to the needs. Please pray with us on this.

Another huge blessing is being able to speak face to face with people who want to translate the God's Story script into a new language and provide a narrator for God's Story. We have already gathered personal commitments from about **70 evangelists for new language versions of God's Story

Our immediate need upon arriving home will be to find the $200.00 per language needed to assemble and ship the Translation Package to each of these 70 evangelists. They will begin the arduous task of translating, believing by faith that after their work is completed, we will have the provision of $2,000.00 needed to complete the recording and production work. Again, this too is beyond our reach to supply, but we must believe Isaiah 59:1 "Behold, the LORD's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:"

Again, please pray and stand with us. I am humbled, scared and excited about the awesome task and opportunity set before us.

*We at first projected 3000 in the early days of the conference, but 2,500 turned out to be the total number of forms filled out. We did meet with many times that amount who did not even know about the forms.
**Rather than 70 new languages mentioned, we now see the possibility of 300+ new language versions of God's Story coming from the commitments made at Amsterdam!
