As we look back on 2013, there is so much to celebrate.
We are so grateful for you and for everything you do to invest in the spiritual lives of those in your spheres of influence. By inviting your co-workers, employees, vendors, customers, and friends to watch messages with your over lunch, you are creating opportunities for thousands of people to connect with God in a safe and comfortable environment. And by leading out with this initiative, you are modeling for many, many believers what it looks like to take your faith with you into the workplace.
Here’s a glimpse of how far your influence has reached:
58 ➙ ➙ ➙ number of new groups launched this year! 220 ➙ ➙ active Life Lessons groups, as of December 16th 35 ➙ ➙ ➙ Life Lessons groups in non-traditional environments, such as schools, colleges, military installations, rehab facilities, correctional facilities, coaching clinics, and neighborhoods 26 ➙ ➙ ➙ U.S. states in which Life Lessons groups operate 11 ➙ ➙ ➙ countries in which groups operate, with the additions of China, Costa Rica, Peru, and the Philippines in 2013 5,200+ total people who participated in Life Lessons this year 47,000* approximate times a Life Lessons participant watched a message in 2013
Each of those numbers represents lives you have touched. In leading Life Lessons Over Lunch, you are creating environments where people can connect with their heavenly Father—often people who have opted out of church, or even been rejected by church.
Thank you for allowing us to partner with you in ministry this year, and thank you for all you do to make a difference in your sphere of influence!
