I finished reading Bill Hybels book Just Walk Across The Room. It was very motivational and shared helpful information on how to become active in sharing your faith. Hybels believes its as simple as walking across the room. Hybels may be one of the best one on one "sharers of faith" I've ever encountered. If you are interested in developing your capacity and desire to become more outreach oriented, this book is extremely helpful.

I will be preaching about personal outreach in mid January.

This past week has been an emotional rollar coaster for many of us, especially me. One of our members and a dear friend, was diagnosed with cancer. His name is Bob Roth and he's the father of five children 12 and under. Bob is the picture of health, but a jogging injury sent him to the doctor and the doctor sent him to have an MRI and what was thought to be a tendon injury turned out to be something far worse. The initial reports are extremely hopeful, but please pray for Bob, Teresa and their children. Bob, age 42, will have a hip replacement this week and then begin chemo therapy as soon as possible.

Hallel was here this past Sunday and theh energy and worship was inspirational. It was a great day of worship. Thanks to Murray for having the vision to bring them here.

Enjoy your Tuesday.

You and ALL of my Fairfax family have been on my heart and mind- especially today. I am so sad for my friends there!!! Please know that there are prayer warriors in Houston.

Hi Bruce...it was good to get a look at your surgery story, given all of the serious stuff going on over there in your neck of the woods...

You are all in our radar (and prayers) as we continue to watch what unfolds with Sarah, and Bob no less. Miss you all, and I suspect we'll be back for visit in the near future.

Best wishes,

Mark Russell
