A few days ago we were informed that the first shipment of 400,000 French translations of a booklet titled The Story that Matters, are on their way to France and French Africa, with the majority of the materials heading into the troubled region of the Democratic Republic of Congo. We’ve already heard reports of the impact our materials are having in other parts of Africa, so we are excited to hear how this recent shipment helps the church in the DRC. What a blessing to know that our efforts here in Canada are impacting dear ones all over the world. You too share in the blessing by your partnership with us! Thank you for helping make all this possible!
Here at home, I have added audiobook narration to my list of undertakings. I would appreciate prayer as I will be narrating one of our main evangelism books, By This Name as an audiobook. This is a large book and will involve probably 30+ hours in the studio over a couple weeks. Please pray for good health during the the start of winter here so that I will not get one of my infamous sinus infections as that will make for some strange listening. Also, poor Allan who has to edit the audio and listen to me over and over and over…
Today, Naomi is home looking after sick children. She is thankful she can be available to them as needs be, but also has the flexibility to help out in the office, proofreading, writing for the GoodSeed website and pitching in wherever needed. We are thankful we can serve the Lord in these ways.

FOR CANADIANS ONLY — PS: It is not very often that a we can give something back to our supporters as a “thank you” for praying and supporting us, however if you were to go out and hire someone to do what we are about to mention, it would cost between $1,500 and $2,000 to gain this level of advice. Here is what it is.
A short time ago GoodSeed partnered with ADVISORS with Purpose, a service that helps donors integrate biblical stewardship into their Wills and Estates.
As part of our partnership, ADVISORS with Purpose is offering Canadian supporters of GoodSeed a confidential Estate plan. Here is the good news:
This service can be personalized for each supporter; this plan will help supporters align their Will with their faith, values and desires.
This service is entirely free.
ADVISORS with Purpose does not sell anything.
None of your personal financial information is shared with us or anyone else.
Why is this needful? Well, if you are like me, you have probably thought that:
I’m not wealthy; only the wealthy need to have an Estate plan
I won’t pay taxes after death
My Will is up-to-date, so I don’t need a plan
If I give to charity, I won’t have anything to leave to my family.
Rather awkwardly, I’ve learned all of these are misconceptions. Perhaps you share my thinking.
Tax laws are complicated, and to clear any confusion, you are invited to a 45-minute phone seminar. In this “conference” call, you will receive Estate and Will planning information. This phone seminar will help you understand how to provide for your family in your Will, how to reduce or remove the taxes you will pay on an Estate, and how you can continue supporting ministries of your choice. This is not a fundraising call and no appeal will be made. Should you like further help after the call, an Estate-planning specialist will be available to talk with you privately. Once again, ADVISORS with Purpose does not sell products; they only provide information so you can make wise choices regarding your Will and Estate.
