- The number of people attending FaithSearch events through 2017, totaled 977,587. God willing, in this fortieth “Year of Gratitude,” we will reach 1,000,000 attendees.
- Every month in 2018, there is a BOGO (buy one, get one FREE) offer for one of our ministry publications on our Web site (www.faithsearch.org). Make a difference while you save!
- Jesus (the object of our faith) saves us, and not our faith itself. Despite their sincere faith, a Buddhist, a Muslim, or a Hindu is not saved. There is only one Savior (Acts 4:12; 1 John 5:11-13). How can anything keep us from sharing it with everyone? (Luke 24:46-48; Acts 1:8)

I recall many exchanges of jokes that began with “What do you get when…” For example: What do you get when you cross a cow and a trampoline? Answer: A milkshake!
When this question is applied to nature, you often get a “real” answer. [Read more…]
The joke I was told in Katowice – a coal mining region of Poland – goes like this: “Why are miners making their tunnels under Catholic churches? – They are looking for a foundation of their faith.” I will definitely use this as an icebreaker next time I teach my “Historic Foundations of Christian Faith” class there. And I need to make that “next time” happen sometime soon – to take advantage of a whole number of invitations from their Christian and secular universities and churches. [Read more…]
Day one. First, I left my laptop at home and only made that discovery at the airport. A dear friend John, my early morning ride to the airport, had to make that trip twice and I didn’t even miss my flight.
Well, I didn’t miss that one but, due to a delayed departure from JFK and, consequently, late arrival to Moscow, I did miss the other two – to Warsaw and then to Katowice. It was a long day of hurrying and waiting, cancelling and re-booking, praying and praising the Lord for eventually bringing me to my final destination only two hours later than planned.
I had plenty of airplane food (there was a Great Lenten menu on Aeroflot flights!); airplane rest (stretching across empty seats!); and airplane entertainment (no comment!) with ample time for refreshing my first presentation for the teachers in Katowice Pedagogical Institute.
I am so looking forward to it as well as to my all other events in Poland, Belarus, and Russia!
