This year marks 40 years of ministry for The Winning Walk. Four decades of showing people the winning way to live by the truth and power of God's Word. What a journey it's been!
And I believe our journey together is only just beginning. With the generous support of ministry partners like you, I believe the best years are still ahead of us.
Still... I do think it's important to recognize how far God has brought us, and that a lot has happened since He launched this ministry back in 1978.
Consider that back then, 40 years ago...
Jimmy Carter was President.
The minimum hourly wage was $2.65.
Baseball player Pete Rose got his 3,000th major league hit.
The movies Grease and Jaws 2 were released.
Then, a few years later, my book titled The Winning Walk was released. It was the one that God used to really kick-start what we’re doing together today.
And as I said, a lot has changed since that moment in time...
We've had six more Presidents.
The Berlin Wall came down.
The laptop computer was invented.
Everyone got a mobile phone.
We saw the rise of social media.
And September 11 changed everything.
But through it all, God has continued speaking to people through The Winning Walk —because the proven truth of His Word never changes.
The Bible always speaks to our needs because it’s alive! It’s God’s revelation. It’s a shepherd’s staff. It’s a seed which is “living and active” (Hebrews 4:12), breathing and moving among all who ponder its pages prayerfully and meditatively with the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Your gifts and prayers have helped bring God’s holy, Spirit-breathed Word to thousands of people through broadcasts on radio, television, and the internet through The Winning Walk. And I’m grateful.
Thank you for helping plant seeds of truth over the past 40 years. In the years to come, may those seeds continue to grow — until they become forests of God’s Kingdom on earth.
