Happy New Year! As we say goodbye to a fantastic year of ministry I'm reminded that it's not just the end of another year, but more importantly, it's the beginning of a new year. With the new year comes new goals, new visions, and a renewed eagerness to strive after both. 

Laurie and I set aside much of the day to pray and seek God for vision and direction for GTD in 2013. We believe that God is challenging us to see 2013 as a "Break Through Year". There are several areas within this ministry that seem only inches away from the greatness of what they could be. We feel like a caterpillar inside of a chrysalis that has transformed into a butterfly and all it needs to do is "break through" the outer shell so that it can fly or like a yoked ox that must "break through" small straps to gain its full potential. We believe God is making us aware of small walls that He wants to break through this year that stand between where we are and the promises that God calls us into.

We are excited about what lies ahead in 2013 as we anticipate many small piles of crushed concrete from the several Break Throughs God brings about this year in GTD. We are making an inventory of the areas God wants to break through this year and we look forward to sharing all the details with you. Thank you for praying for great things for GTD in 2013!

Our Break Through theme chapter in the Bible is Isaiah 58

Our Break Through theme song is, "Live It Out" by Abandon
