Thank you for reading the CARM newsletter, and I hope you like the new look.
Last newsletter I filled you in on the various challenges that my family has been going through. Though those challenges are not yet all settled, we can see the grace of God sustaining us in keeping a strong through them. We praise him for his faithfulness to us.
Many of you may be familiar with wikipedia.com. It is a free online encyclopedia where anybody can go and write and/or edit articles. It is very popular and very useful. I thought it would be a good idea to have something like that from an evangelical Christian perspective. So, if you were to go to www.carmpedia.com you would see the just-released web site. If you have an article or an idea that you would like to write about, all you need to do is agree to the statement of faith on CARMpedia and write to your heart's desire.
We are in need of articles because, basically, there aren't any there yet. You see, it is populated by Christians and since it has just been released, there's nothing in it yet. But, there will be. So, if you feel led to contribute please head on over and check it out. I have to warn you though, it is a little tough initially to get the feel of how it works. That's why we have a help article linked on the main page called START HERE. Click it and have a go.
By way of reminder, I have recently released a new section on CARM dealing with Wicca and I am presently studying Kabbalah in order to present the Christian exposé of it. Needless to say it is rather daunting and I could use some prayers for anyone who would ask the Lord to protect this Ministry and my family as I tackle this occultic material. Believe me, we do need to prayer support.
After I'm done with the Kabbalah section, I will get back to work on the book called The Garden. For those of you who have recently signed up, you can check out the first draft of the first chapter www.carm.org/temp/01.htm. It is designed to be an evangelistic novel that teaches biblical theology while keeping the reader engaged. It is a difficult task to work at all in properly, but I God's grace I am getting through it.
THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT
Thank you for all of you who have prayed for us and we have been supporting us financially. Both are extremely necessary for the continuation of this Ministry. CARM is becoming so large and requiring so much attention, that is not possible for me to do it and work even a part-time job. We are on the verge of full-time ministry in the next couple of months will help us greatly decide if I'm to quit my part-time job and we CARM full-time. As I've said before, and is simply a matter of medical insurance, the final hurdle.
