Mary and I have had the pleasure of teaching in Romania this week! What an experience! It was a blessing to be able to teach the biblical perspective on addiction to such hungry and thankful students. It was a privilege to preach the Word of God to such committed followers of Christ.

Let me urge you to take a week or two this year to travel to another country where you can preach the Gospel, share the love of Christ, and serve people in real need.

In America, we are so very blessed and we have many material things, but all of those things pale in comparison with a simple faith and hunger for the Word which many Americans lack. Believe me, I was one of them. So let me encourage you to go and make disciples of all nations…(Matt. 28:18-20).

-Mark (awed that the Gospel cuts across all cultures and nations)
