“Give the talk of your life in 18 minutes or less.” That’s the goal for anyone speaking at a TED event. A person gets on stage to share an “idea worth spreading” about a topic they’re qualified to speak. My own “talk of a lifetime” will be today, yet on a different stage.
As you’re reading this, I am in Phoenix presenting our ministry at the Arizona State Capitol. Kirsten’s second cousin is their legislative chaplain and hosts a weekly prayer luncheon where she has graciously given me the floor to speak. It’s an incredible honor to have this opportunity!
At this event I will share the vision we think is worth spreading: how Jesus is transforming the lives of college students in the “capital of the world” and using their positive influence to shape our culture.
We believe the gospel is the best remedy for a world filled with both broken and proud people. Nevertheless, Kirsten’s and my ability to offer this message to NYC students hinges on securing the necessary funding to keep our family here.
Even though we’ve moved to New York City, we can’t report to campus full-time until our team of ministry partners is complete. We’re trusting God to provide more financial supporters to send us to bring the gospel to these spiritually lost students. Right now we’re 80% of the way!
I’m staying with my mom, Virginia, who lives in Sun City West. She’ll be hosting a gathering with her friends for me to speak with as well.
Would you please pray for my ten days in Phoenix as I seek to return home nearly fully-funded? And, let me know if you have a friend in the area who might like to hear from me!
HOW TO PRAY
I’m hoping to follow up with each attendee personally to hear what they think and invite them to partner with us. Pray that our ministry would connect with their hearts.
I’ll also attend this annual prayer event as a guest on the 21st. Pray that I connect with leaders who would like to help reach NYC college students.

Ten days without dad is hard. Keep Kirsten in your prayers too. Check in with her on Facebook or email. She would love to know you’re thinking of her.
