I am Depending on You!

I spent this past weekend with my Kansas State Let's Start Talking mission team back in the glory land of Norman, Oklahoma. It was the always-grand experience of Intensive Training weekend, which is about 38 hours of non-stop team building, mission learning, role-playing, and other wonderful training exercises for six weeks worth of surviving in another culture across the world, sharing Jesus and sharing ourselves.

Which brings me to something I must ask of you. As part of my commitment to Let's Start Talking and my team of students, I must have half of my total $3,500 fundraising commitment fulfilled in less than one week from today. As of tonight, some of you plus other incredibly generous people in my life have given exactly $1,170, leaving less than a week to see another $580. This, of course, still means another $1,750 by the end of May.

Will you help me? The fastest and easiest way to contribute is to go to www.supportcary.com and enter your contribution directly online. If you prefer to send a check, email me and I will give you all of the information on what to do.

If you are unfamiliar with the work of Let's Start Talking, it is a 28 year-old missions movement within Churches of Christ that sends hundreds of teams around the world at the invitation of local missionaries to help people improve their conversational English ability. This is done by using the Bible as a text for reading and conversation. It is relationally-based, non-confrontational, and does not seek artificial conversions. It believes in the power of the Spirit, the Word, and Godly relationships to plant seeds of faith in the hearts of people. Every year it reaches thousands of people who have never touched a Bible in their lives or known a Christian. It is wholly dependent on the work of God among his people and has no expectation that LST workers will be the ones producing conversion. I believe it is one of the most Godly ways of carrying the message of Christ around the globe that we have. It gives college students a chance to see how the message of Christ transcends culture, time, and custom, and understand the diversity of the world.

One pressing question is "Where are you going?" This will be decided by the LST ministry in February, but as of right now Japan may be the most likely for us. This could change, though, so don't count on it yet.

Many many thanks to all of you who have helped make this mission possible so far. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
