2009 In Review

I received this note in the offering plate on Sunday:

“Thank you! You are very good at acting. I’m 12 years old and that act of yours made me believe.”

When it comes right down to it, I can’t think of a better way to sum up what this ministry is all about. I am an actor called by God to use my gifts in service to Him. When I use my gifts as He intended, lives are changed. What an incredible blessing.

God has been so very good to this ministry. As you may recall, this year marks MIP’s 25th anniversary. Twenty-five years of traveling, performing, teaching, directing and writing. Thousands of performances, which equals multiple thousands of lives touched. I can’t help but wonder how many more would echo the words of the 12-year-old above. I am grateful. I am humbled.

2009 has been a great year and a challenging year. Great to still be doing this, in spite of the tough economy. God has seen fit to not only allow us to continue, but often at a busier pace than in some previous years. Challenging in that in doing so we had to learn to do some things differently and learn to lean on Him even more than ever. He does not disappoint
2010 looks to be a year of adventure for us. I am going with World Vision to Uganda in January. On our return I scheduled a performance in London! With the help of Board Member, Ross Collingwood, we are working on a ministry trip to New Zealand in late April. We have begun to expand our ministry in the area of video and are producing short videos that are being used in churches across the country. And we will continue to be out performing most every week, bring truth to life on the stage. In our ongoing partnership with World Vision and I am happy to tell you that to date we have been able to find sponsors for over 4,000 kids through our performances. What a blessing!

Thank you to all of you who have faithfully supported us. I know that it is not always easy. Again, I am grateful and humbled that you would support us with your prayers and finances. God has used you to continue this ministry so we can help others to “believe” through our “acts.”

So, as you reflect on your past year and look forward to 2010, we would be so very honored and blessed if you would consider a gift to Master’s Image Productions. We would be especially grateful if you could support us on a regular basis with a monthly pledge (and if you are already doing that, thank you!). Please use the enclosed card and envelope to add your support to our work. We couldn’t do what we do without the help of friends like you!

May God bless you and yours this Christmas and in 2010!

Serving the Lord dramatically,
