Today's update is from Michael Gunnin, our new VP for Advancement. Many of you haven't met him yet, but he's a great addition to our team. This trip to Kenya is Michael's first opportunity to interact with most of our global leaders, and I love seeing what our worldwide ministry looks like through his eyes. Enjoy. ~ Phil

Dear Friends in Ministry,

Greetings from Kenya! We are just wrapping up our second full day in Kenya.

I'm sitting outside under a cool, Kenyan night sky reflecting on the day. I could sum up what I'm feeling with one word - overwhelmed.

I'm overwhelmed by the teaching and learning that we've experienced the past two days. Phil Tuttle has been teaching Chosen, his new course on Mary the mother of Jesus. The discussion and sharing with people from over 20 various countries has been remarkable. Our international leaders are excited about the opportunity to use Chosen to build bridges and extend the ministry opportunities around the world!

I'm overwhelmed by meeting the remarkable men and women who lead Walk Thru the Bible's international team. Being the new team member, I'm meeting many of them for the first time this week. They are passionate and courageous. They love Walk Thru the Bible. They are deeply devoted followers of Christ. Their desire to help people ignite passion for God's Word is indescribable.

I'm overwhelmed by the fellowship happening in Kenya. We've laughed. We've cried. We've dreamed big dreams. We've prayed for each other and been able to encourage several enduring real challenges. God is doing something special in Kenya.

I'm overwhelmed by the ministry opportunities for Walk Thru the Bible. I wish you were here to listen to our global leaders share the strategic opportunities God is providing for WTB to grow in its current ministry areas and expand into new ones. I'm convinced some of our best days are ahead.

I'm overwhelmed by knowing all that Walk Thru's financial partners have provided. WTB has such generous partners who faithfully support the ministry. Listening to the stories of life change the past two days remind me again that God has and is continuing to use Walk Thru the Bible in significant ways.

Please keep praying for us. This week is an important and strategic time for our global ministry.

Thank you for your support, your prayers, and partnership in ministry.

You are changing the world!

Michael Gunnin
