Dear Prayer Team,
At the beginning of each year, I wrestle with numbers-not the finances or tax figures. I struggle to set a yearly goal of the number of people around the world who will be impacted by the Biblical Foundations for Freedom web pages. As mentioned in the last letter, God enabled us to surpass last year's goal of 1.5 million page views.
What do we want God to do this year? How many pages will be viewed? Last year the number of BFF web pages viewed increased by 500,000. Our goal was only half of that. So this year we will seek the Lord to give us another 500,000 pages viewed on top of what we actually got last year. That will push it to be roughly 2.25 million pages.
Competition is getting stiff. If BFF does not stay in the top ten page rank for many key words, our goal most likely will not work be met. In today's world, many web pages are without content, just designed to get views for ads. The web pages of BFF are designed to strengthen the faith of God's people. By God's grace we have been able to avoid using ads to make money. Keep praying for us to keep on the cutting-edge of things.
What does this mean for us practically? We need to keep producing quality pages. Thanks to the Lord's grace, this has come easily. We trust Him for grace for the days ahead. There are many exciting materials coming out, including many more BFF video podcasts. (You can now go straight to our webpage and view/hear it).
We will also be producing one-on-one modular discipleship materials. More about that in another letter. Pray for 6,000 page views each and every day.
It is exciting to see how God is working through your prayers! Thanks again for partnering with us in prayer.
In Christ's Majestic Love,
Rev. Paul J. Bucknell
