Greetings from South Korea

No, not from me. I'm still in the US, but I got this comment from the website today and thought I'd share it:

"Thank you Thank you. My wife and I teach children in South Korea on Sat nites that come to our house to learn English..but we are using it as an opportunity to teach them about Jesus."

It's awesome to see how God uses us all in ways we don't expect - even using Booples in South Korea!

Booples on Amazon!

I just finished setting up a deal via CreateSpace that will allow Booples videos to be sold via CreateSpace and Amazon as DVDs and digital downloads. Amazon downloads (Unbox) are to TiVo's.

This is very exciting and the videos should be listed on their sites in the next couple of weeks!!!

Exceptional things for God

From "My Utmost for His Highest" today...

It is ingrained in us that we have to do exceptional things for God—but we do not. We have to be exceptional in the ordinary things of life, and holy on the ordinary streets, among ordinary people—and this is not learned in five minutes.

We always want to make it about some great act, accomplishment, deed, etc. but first He just wants us to walk with Him.

To me, that's freeing.

Booples at Seguin again!

The Booples video "Everything without Complaining" was selected as a finalist in the Seguin Film Fest.

This is the third year for Booples to be in the Seguin film festival. In 2007, "Jonah and the Tarshish Fish" won Best Animation and Fourth place overall!

The festival takes place this weekend, Oct 24-26.

Robin Hood

Reading about the blackjack player that's going to help some random folks out is fairly inspiring. (see

However, it's sad that this isn't the church or something else doing this...  I guess there's a lot of sides to this...

1. It's 'sensational' so it gets news - you don't hear about the local soup kitchen doing good every day.
2. It's about debt - hot topic.
3. It's wild - gambling!

Also, the church tends to try more rehab type solutions: don't just pay off their debt, teach them to be good stewards of their money. Programs like Financial Peace University and such are amazing in their long term effects.

On the flip side, I've read that around 90% of people coming into sudden wealth (e.g., lottery winners) are WORSE off w/in 1 year.

Just some thoughts... no real solid point here.

On the Booples front...

- I'm working on finalizing deals with several download based sites
- the Booples children's book is moving along (everything is w/ the publisher!)
- one more video ("Love Your Neighbor") and I'll release the 3rd DVD!

God bless!
