Greetings Christlike Ministries NWA Family,
I write this today so that we can close out 2013, and talk about a few things to look forward to for 2014. This past year I wasn’t able to write as often, but I think we had some really good things taught to us.
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 18,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
In 2013, there were 49 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 321 posts. There were 68 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 5 MB. That’s about a picture per week.
The busiest day of the year was September 14th with 134 views. The most popular post that day was 7 Hebrew Words for Praise: “Shabach”.
This blog was viewed nearly 18,000 times. That’s outstanding. As I said, and this is proof…this shows our most popular messages…and it also reveals which was our most popular series.
These are the posts that got the most views in 2013. You can see all of the year’s most-viewed posts in your Site Stats.

For those of you who have followed me for any length of time you know that the next stat is the one that excites and humbles me the most.
Christlike Ministries NWA has reached 138 countries in all!
We have reached 138 countries. We have gained nearly 40 nations since last years report. That is absolutely fantastic, and the statistic that I’m most excited about. Most of our readers are from the US, the UK, and Canada…but to have 135 more nations to it is awesome!
I want to thank all of you. Why? Because I couldn’t do this without you. Every time you share what I’ve written you help to get the message out, and every time one of you retweets a link that has a message or my blog site in it…you help to get the Word of God to hundreds…if not thousands.
I know there are preachers and pastors in third world nations that take my messages and use them to teach their people and tribes that have no idea what the Internet or even the Bible is…yet through these messages they are taught the uncompromised truth…and I can’t do this by myself.
I need God’s help to do this, but I also need yours. I need you to re-post, to re-tweet, and share these messages. I need you to help me to grow this ministry by inviting us to your friends and family members. I need you guys to come out of the shadows and like us or follow us. I will make sure you have the links to every site we’re on at the end of this message…but I can’t do this all on my own…I need you…the Christlike Ministries NWA Family also.
So, now that we know how we did in 2013, I would like to let you know what I believe the Lord is going to have us do starting tomorrow as we kick of 2014.
For those of you who only follow me on WordPress I’d like to invite you to follow me on Twitter, connect with me on LinkedIn, and fan our Facebook Fan Page. That’s because in addition to what I write here, I will also (starting tomorrow) be posting Scriptures of the Day on those sites. I also have on my Personal Facebook write a somewhat daily devotional titled “From The Heart”, and this years messages will be taken and assisted by the use of a devotional titled “Embracing Faith”.
On the LinkedIn I am going to be writing a devotional as well. This is a new thing I’m doing. It doesn’t have a title for now, and it’s going to also be taken from a daily Bible devotional I have.
Also, on the Facebook Fan Page, I have a devotional titled “In His Image”, and this year…we’re really going to learn about how to be conformed more and more into His image because I’m going to be using Sara Young’s “Jesus Calling” to help me with writing this years devotional messages. After all, with a devotional titled “In His Image”…how much better can we learn about being in His image then by learning from Jesus, Himself!?!
I know, I know. What about here on WordPress? The very first series of this year is going to begin on Monday, January 6, 2014. It’s a 30 Day series, and I’m really excited about it because we’re going to be learning from one of the heavyweights of Christianity. It’s also a well-known devotional. The series…”My Utmost for His Highest” by Oswald Chambers.
So let’s review…starting tomorrow morning…we will begin posting a daily scripture and starting the writing of our devotional on our LinkedIn page. Also, starting tomorrow we will be posting a daily scripture on both my Ministry Twitter and Personal Twitter accounts, and finally on the Facebook Fan Page we’ll have a daily scripture, and devotional posts from Sara Young’s “Jesus Calling” as the subject of our devotional “In His Image”.
Then starting Monday, January 6, we’ll begin a 30 Day series taken from Oswald Chambers “My Utmost for His Highest”.

Well, friends. I am truly excited about what we have accomplished in 2013, and even more excited about what’s to come in 2014. I believe that we’re heading in a good direction…and I’m believing that God is going to continue to add followers and increase the number of nations we’re reaching.
Thank you ALL for a fantastic year!
Blessings & Grace to you.
