When Janette graduated from the University of Minnesota with a passion for evangelism, she had no idea how God might use her in the marketplace, but God did!
For 3 years, Janette prayed with perseverance that the Lord would work in her friend, Theresa’s, life. This hardened 30-something seemed to be the last coworker who would be interested in Jesus.

A few months later, Theresa surprised Janette by telling her that she had surrendered her life and invited Jesus to be her Lord.
If you’re leading a team then you know you that this is crunch time. There are a few precious weeks with these people who have been entrusted to your care before your staff peel off to focus on MPD and prepare for their summer assignments.

“Perhaps the most undervalued quality of a great mind or, at least, an awakened mind, is the willingness to abandon cherished ideas that cannot stand up to new evidence.” Joseph Loconte “It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.”
