A very happy summer to each of you! 

I really hope you have something on the calendar by way of rest and joy this summer. Even if it’s “only” evenings on the balcony or your back deck, summer can be so lovely and restorative. Let the beauty in!

If you didn't catch our “What do I do with my summer?” podcast (titled “Rethink Your Summer”), search for our May 1st podcast wherever you listen. Or on our website, too. 

We are so grateful for each of you––our friends, our allies, our partners in this sweet part of the Story of God. Such beautiful, beautiful things are taking place through this message and mission around the world. I just had to share a few stories with you here.

We just wrapped up our ninth Boot Camp, with 36 guys present. It is literally changing our men’s movement at the church. Over 150 guys meet every Wednesday night for open conversations and to do life together in our “Fight Club.” We only have 600 men in our church, so the numbers are not normal! More men come to our men’s events than women to the women’s events. It’s crazy! FOUR guys committed to accept Jesus as Savior and Lord on Saturday during Boot Camp!! That’s never happened before. Anyway, just wanted to share the good news that the message of WAH is impacting a huge remnant in our town. Lives are being transformed and marriages restored. Bottom line, there’s a move of God here!

  And this one:

I wanted to tell you that my husband gave his heart to God yesterday, May 23, during his commute to work. He was listening to a podcast you did on giving your whole heart to God. And he did. Thank you for being the one God used to bring him to a place of brokenness and vulnerability. Thank you for speaking and teaching in a way that a man like my husband felt okay to engage in and be open to. He said he started crying as soon as he heard you praying on this podcast. That’s not like him. Thank you for telling the story of your deep wounds, which allowed him to go to his and cry to Jesus. I cannot stop praising Jesus for this gift!

Doesn’t your heart just rejoice at this?

And, friends––this is happening a LOT through our partnership, in so many countries spanning the globe. Jesus! We worship you, Lord!

And thank you, everyone, for helping make this happen.

We are a crowd-funded nonprofit. Which means that most of our income––the fuel for this mission––comes from the generosity of our friends. That’s how it works.

A few years back, our board asked me, "If someone gave you $5 million, what would you do with it?" I immediately said, "foreign translation," because we have so many beautiful, healing resources that we want to bring to human hearts all over the world. Well, no one has given us the $5 million (yet!), but we decided to press ahead anyway. We have several languages under development now for the Wild at Heart, Captivating, and Becoming a King "Experiences," and also Wild at Heart BASIC and Captivating CORE (our four-day retreats by video session). Arabic is one of those languages, with lots more to come!

Maybe if we all join together we can come up with that $5 million! Wouldn't that be a Jesus story? It’s been a while since I asked (we don’t ask often). I don't want to pressure or manipulate. I just want to remind you that we are still supported by our friends, and we would love it if you could send a little help our way.

You can make a one-time gift or a recurring gift online on our website (www.WildAtHeart.org) or on our mobile app (the Wild at Heart app). Or you can send a check in, too.

Thank you, friends. Thank you. Opportunities are opening up for us. We’d love to say “yes” if we can.

Now back to summer. Make sure you are checking in with Jesus on your plans. Most importantly, ask what he has for your heart in this more playful time of year!

That’s it. We simply love partnering with you!
