As you read this, the attention of the world is on the world. Athletes from 206 nations are converging on Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for the 2016 Summer Olympics. More than 10,000 athletes will compete in 28 sports over 17 days in 38 competition venues. We’ll watch more than 300 medal events.

Few of us will ever display an Olympic medal on our mantels, but God has promised eternal rewards for our faithfulness in fulfilling His work. The last words of our Lord Jesus, as Matthew records them, are: “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:18-20).

It is time for the Church to refresh its commitment to its commission. There is a world to reach with the Gospel. Turning Point is more committed than ever to obeying God’s call to spread the Gospel and the principles of Scripture around the world. Where God gives us an open door and the ability, we will walk through it.

Because of your prayers and partnership, Turning Point is reaching millions of people worldwide every day. I’m praying you’ll be as blessed as I am by the testimonies and reports you will read here.

Thank you for being part of it all. Thank you for all your prayers and support!
