We received the following email a couple of months ago from someone we have never met. We thought we would share it here. Frank and Cindy May
My name is Charlie, a dentist in Spokane. I was searching around the internet for missions in dentistry, etc., when I happened upon a link to your ministry. I had no intention on going to the site as I surveyed the list of links. I do not know you and there are many ministries out there. But for some reason, my eyes kept seeing your names and I was compelled to go there. And so I did.
I loved reading your blog and my heart was moved.
I saw your links to David Platt and I had never heard of him. But you said it was a “must-see” for Christians, so I took you up on that. Well, let’s make a long story short, our family has been having “video nights” using David’s series and they have impacted us in amazing ways. Not an hour goes by without some kind of thought towards our richness and how we can use our resources for heaven and not for ourselves just as Christ showed us. You were right: they are life-changing and I could not be more excited for what God is doing.
So I want to thank you. You, who I do not know, yet used by God to direct our thoughts towards heaven.
David Platt has become kind of a “second” pastor to us and a regular on our podcast subscriptions. I’m especially moved to see my 19 year old downloading many of David’s sermons to his ipod and the other night he had friends in his room and when I dropped in, they were watching one of David’s sermons on Radical Christianity. This has been real powerful.
Tomorrow night we start the Faith Works series. I’m excited about that. We would love to get other families involved with us too as they would be great for a small group ministry.
God Bless you guys in all your ministry and I will always be grateful to you as
Your brother in the Lord,
We are so thankful to the person who introduced us to David Platt’s teaching on one of the most important subjects in the Bible. We can’t help but share what God has used in our lives. For anyone who leads a small group, these are two excellent series. (Click on the images above for links to the two online video message series.) Frank has led a couple of groups through this. And we love going through it again ourselves. It is powerful, and truly is a “must-see”. It fits well into a 13-week group. If you have questions or ideas, comments or suggestions, please feel free to contact us! ~ Frank and Cindy
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:23-25
