BUSY PAST COUPLE OF WEEKS

Things here at CARM have really been hopping.  The last two weeks, CARM set two new records on visitors on the home page for a one-week period:  20,600 last week!  This means that in a one-week period, the Home Page was accessed over 20,000 times.... and that is not counting the rest of the site!  I suspect that in a year or so, I'll have to purchase a high speed server to handle the extra increase in traffic which I expect to be between 25,000 and 30,0000 visits a week.  Praise God.

BTW (by the way), when you go to CARM, can you please remember to go to the Home Page at least once per visit so that you can be counted?  Thanks.


=============================
DO YOU WANT TO HEAR THE RADIO SPOT FOR CARM CONVENTION?
Kevin Harris, one of the speakers at the upcoming CARM convention, works at a Christian radio station in the Dallas, Fort Worth area.  He put together a radio spot that we want to air on his radio station prior to the convention.  He told me that at any one time, 100,000 people are listening to the station because it is the fifth largest Christian radio market in the world.  It is very cost effective.

We are asking for donations to cover the cost of placing the ad -- at $75 dollars a minute for each radio spot -- for the convention.  It will be placed during the Bible Answerman show which has a huge listening audience.  To listen to the demo radio spot (68 seconds long- and to be shortened) go to http://www.carm.org/audio/carm1.wma (Windows Media Player) or http://www.carm.org/audio/carm1.rm (Real Player).  There are two inside jokes, though, in the ad:  Mormonism teaches abstinence from coffee and atheists universally compare God to invisible pink unicorns.  The unicorn thing is a standard come back from atheists who say that God can't be proven the same as you can't prove the existence of invisible pink unicorns.  Hope you enjoy it.  If you do, please email me back, let me know what you think and I'll forward the comments to Kevin.

If you like the ad and want to contribute to having it run on the air beginning about two weeks prior to the event, then please send any donation about you want to CARM (RADIO SPOT), PO BOX 461054, Escondido, CA, 92046-1054.  Please mark your donation (Radio Spot).  I will collect them all, and send a CARM check to the radio station and whatever we have is how many ads will run.  One more thing:  Kevin is a very strong supporter of CARM and says that he can really get a good deal on how many times the ad will run for the money sent in.  Praise God.

VERSE OF THE WEEK.
Isaiah 58:11
“And the Lord will continually guide you, And satisfy your desire in scorched places, And give strength to your bones; And you will be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail," (NASB).
