Mentoring is inevitable. It happens as friends talk, as parents spend time with their kids, as Uncle Bernie takes little Corey fishing, as the boss shows the employee how the new laser printer works. Other times it’s more structured and focused on personal growth. Both are good. At Entrust, we love mentoring and see it as key to our mandate to multiply leaders for multiplying churches. If you’re eager to be mentored in your walk with Christ, consider author Randy Alcorn’s five practical steps for getting started. And don’t be surprised if somewhere along the way, someone asks you to mentor them!

You will hear the phrase “Friday, the 13th no less than 87 times today. No less than 129 theories exist as to how we ever got the notion that a 13th day of the month on a Friday is somehow “bad luck.” The whole idea of “luck” is kind of an odd one really, when you think about it. No data exists to prove that worse things happen on this kind of day than any other. What does is exist is this. God made time. He made you. He knows what will happen every day of your life. Today will not surprise him. No need to fear. Go into it with joy!

Farming God’s way. What does that mean? Local farmers learned all about it when teachers from South Africa visited Kurdistan last fall. Entrust’s Fuad N., Kurdish and South African farmers learned and were encouraged together while gaining new ideas about farming methods in the fields of Kurdistan.
