Has anybody seen my memory lately? I seem to have left behind a sizable portion of it this past month—probably as a result of covering 5,160+ miles in four weeks to give twenty-eight ABT presentations at twenty-six schools (plus one at a daycare). Looking back, I almost can’t believe I actually...

As the year draws to a close, we’re asking the Lord to lay a burden on people’s hearts for those that remain unreached. ABT’s vision is to partner with churches to send laborers into this field. In order to do this well, another building at the base is needed.

It takes lots of endurance to get the training required to be part of an ABT Church Planting Team so please pray for endurance and wisdom for each one.
