|The cross and the switchblade|
Most of you have probably heard of the book/the movie The cross and the switchblade by David Wilkerson (the founder of Teen Challenge). The book became a best seller, with more than 16 million copies distributed in over 30 languages.
The book is also being used all over the world to reach homeless and addicted people with the good news that a new and different life is possible when we choose to live with Jesus Christ!
Recently the book has been translated from Russian into the Georgian language and 1,000 copies have been printed for distribution.
Last year we supported the work of Teen Challenge in Georgia with a financial gift and we would like to follow up by helping them to pay for the cost of translation and printing of this book.

Besides The cross and the switchblade they also had the Teen Challenge curriculum translated; the personal and group studies that are being used in Teen Challenge rehabilitation centers all over the world in order to help students (ex-addicts) to get back on their feet.
They have printed 300 curriculum sets in expectation of new students coming in! Of course these translation and printing services come with a cost.

We are so happy to see the vision for discipleship in Georgia developing. We wholeheartedly support the work of Teen Challenge. Next month we (Jan and Marja) will bring a visit to Teen Challenge in Georgia.
Jesus commissioned us all: Go into the world and make disciples of all nations... Well, maybe the homeless, addicted, poor, criminal, destitute and lonely do not immediately come to mind, but they also have a right to hear the GOOD NEWS and to live a changed life!
