As most of you know, we formed a team of Asian believers because most of the brothels in Dallas are Asian. This makes it very difficult to connect with them culturally and therefore makes it extremely difficult to find openness. We have always had it on our hearts to create this team, but just didn't … Continue reading BREAKTHROUGH IN BROTHELS
We were on an outreach the other day carrying the cross in an area known for drugs and alcohol. We walked up to this group of men who were in front of a liquor store and just started talking with them. We were greeted very well and ended up talking for about 30 min, praying … Continue reading CAN GOD USE “UNQUALIFIED” PEOPLE TO REACH OTHERS?
Refugees come from all over the world to Dallas. Many have lost and suffered more than any of us could imagine. When they come here, many do not have anything or anyone. It is an extremely difficult and lonely situation. How would you want to be treated if you lost everything and were forced to … Continue reading BEFRIEND A REFUGEE FAMILY
I pray that you will grasp the unbelievable opportunity we have here in Dallas to truly affect other parts of the world. We are looking for people that will go and reach and love international students here in Dallas. There are around 800,000 international students who study in America every year. Twenty thousand alone in … Continue reading IMPACTING THE WORLD BY LOVING INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

We are talking around 2,500,000 people of other cultures and faiths who live here! That is a lot of people. Is that a … Continue reading LOVING PEOPLE OF OTHER FAITHS
Although it is great if people end up in a church, the answer may not always be bringing people to our church. The population of the United States is around 313,000,000. How many Americans regularly go to church? I have studied surveys about how many people attend church in the United States and nobody can … Continue reading REACHING THE UNCHURCHED
One great way to make Muslim and Buddhist friends here in America is to go to their places of worship. I went to one Mosque for an entire year to meet people and to learn about Islam from their perspective instead of sticking with my outside view of it. This was a great help! Now, I … Continue reading GOING TO MOSQUES AND TEMPLES
Recently we have been receiving many Buddhist people from Burma. Believe me when I say this, Buddhists are fun! They are very care-free people. I have loved getting to know them, and I am learning so much from them. Before this year, I really didn't know about Buddhism or about their culture. They love when … Continue reading COOKOUT WITH BUDDHIST FRIENDS
