Letter to Share Owners
you invest in our work--caring about us, praying for us, and
giving to us--in a very real way you share ownership in any
results that God works through Tim and me. We know that there
are an overwhelming number of very good people and organizations
that you could invest in and we are honored and grateful that
you have chosen to invest yourself in what we are doing. As
a share owner you have the right to know the return on your
investment. Our monthly updates are designed to help keep you
abreast of what is happening in our lives and ministry. We hope
this annual report encourages you as you see all that God has
done through our shared efforts.

We believe that ministry normally pays dividends eternally, and
it is impossible to measure the true impact of our lives and work.
But because we set both long and short term goals and objectives,
there are annual dividends that we can measure from this last

strive to see dividends reinvested, in other words to see people
whose lives have been impacted by our lives and ministries in
turn impact others around them. Here are some specific examples
of "reinvesting of dividends":
relationship (2 year) with part time youth leader Veronica
Dominguez. Veronica now writes a practical, biblical column
for the web site, teaches in our conferences, develops active
bible studies of her own for the website, and is training a
group of leaders in her home church.
relationship (2 year) with Jorge Bernaldez, a young man
who is teaching biblical values courses in universities and
other secular settings all over Mexico. Jorge has spoken to
over 10,000 students, parents and faculty in an entire state
high school and University system. He has also been asked to
present his values teaching before up-and-coming political leaders
and workers' unions. He calls us his Christian mom and dad ?.
relationship (3 year) with full time youth leader J.C. Flores
Marker. JC writes a column on arts and publishes scripts
for drama and clown groups for the web site. His contributions
and faithful e-mail correspondence have generated incredible
enthusiasm and participation from people around the world.
relationship (3 years) with college student and former youth
group president Nahum Leon.
Nahum began an evangelistic Bible study on his college campus
in which 5 students asked Christ to be their lord and savior.
And while we've been in the U.S. on furlough, he and two other
leaders have been developing Bible studies, leading the local
youth group, and discipling younger students.
