July brings the glories of our nation declaring its independence. We celebrate with picnics, hot dogs, potato salad (my favorite), hamburgers, and of course fireworks!
As I think about our freedom, I remember the tremendous sacrifice of men and women who put their lives on the line to give us the United States of America. I know that anything worthwhile demands our passionate involvement. In order to have our independence, it took not only the “foot soldiers” but also a nation of people who passionately believed in the cause enough to give their fortunes to fund it.
I often feel like a “foot soldier” for the cause of maturing the Body of Christ through discipleship worldwide. It is a daunting task but since 1979 we have been moving forward with great passion to see this happen. I am thrilled to tell you that today we have reached hundreds of thousands around the world with the VCLi SALT messages.
The future is also exciting. With the addition of Mandarin, we will soon have SALT available in the top 4 spoken languages in the world along with several others. One thing is certain, without the support of people who believe in this cause- our foot soldiers-we could not be setting captives free all over the world. Thank you for standing with us as we push forward to set the captives free.
