Tips for Advertising on Facebook

Facebook is realistically a massive marketplace. It is honestly, without question, one of the biggest groupings of people you will ever see on the Internet. It’s an absolute phenomenon. It really is. Facebook holds a pretty unique accolade. Facebook is the only website that Google is worried about competing with it. Now Google, as you know, is a big company but Microsoft is one of the biggest companies in the world. But Google don’t even bat an eyelid at Microsoft. They’re not interested in their competition but Facebook, Facebook they’re frightened of.
Facebook has huge, huge potential to become the dominant site on the Internet. As you are probably well aware, Google has been the dominant site for many, many years. But Facebook is nipping at its heals and coming up very, very quickly. So Facebook is something that I think you really do need to pay attention to because there’s a lot happening there. Facebook advertising will be one of the greatest opportunities for on and offline business over the next 5 years.  Read more »

I’ve recently read emails from several fellow missionaries and I’ve noticed that we missionaries tend to start our emails out with some reference to the weather. I’m not sure why. It’s not taught in missionary training or in a manual. It’s just an easy way to start, I guess. So, I must follow suit. Read more »

Czech to Bosnia Central Europe Trip

Back in the 80s, there was a popular song by Willie Nelson called, ‘On the Road Again.’ I feel like this song title often describes my e- mail updates, and this one is no exception. After a fairly busy Spring, with trips to England (twice), Switzerland, Czech Republic, Hungary, I’ve had a nice five-week, travel-free period in Austria.
However, on Saturday (July 2), I’m “on the road again” for most of July.

Austria Central Vacation Trip

Just a quick update to let you know that I haven’t fallen into the Danube River, but am alive and well in Austria. I leave on Sunday (April 10) for another trip and am travelling most of April and a good bit of May. So, I thought I’d better write and bring you up to speed on life and ministry with me.

Christmas in Austria While on Vacation

Christmas Greetings from a very cold Austria!

In a dramatic departure from my typical Christmas letter/newsletter, I am resorting to sending my Christmas greetings via e-mail. I hate this because it’s boring and not as personal. Unfortunately, it’s necessary this year as I’ve run out of time to get the newsletters finished and mailed by the end of 2004. I hope you will forgive me this year and will look forward to a “real” newsletter in early 2005. Read more »

Teaching English in Central Europe

Earlier in September, I was in Hungary to teach a class on communications and writing prayer letters to a group of new recruits joining OM teams in Albania, Kosovo, Romania and Bosnia. It’s always good to be reminded myself of the need to communicate with those “back home” who love, support and pray for me on this adventure to which the Lord has called me. So, here goes… Read more »

Spring Travels in Europe

It’s finally Springtime in Europe, which is a welcomed relief! However, last night I was in Vienna and wearing my heavy winter coat, gloves and a hat and was still cold, so the cold weather isn’t gone yet. Read more »

The Washing Machine

When last we left our Central European missionary, she was without a washing machine for six months. During this time, she shared a machine with two other team members, but it was about a 15-minute walk from the Missionary’s apartment. Not a major inconvenience — in the big scheme — but an annoyance at times. When a small washing machine was offered to her, she jumped at the chance to have one in her small kitchen, even though it meant putting the microwave in the combo dining/living room. Again, no biggie. Read more »

Albanian Hearing Clinic

Warm greetings from a cold and gloomy Austria! The weather has been quite dismal since returning to Europe just over a month ago. That hasn’t affected my travel schedule, however. I have been on the road for two weeks since returning: one week in Mosbach, Germany at the OM new recruits conference and then just last week on our team retreat in Regen, Germany. I am happy to report that I don’t have another trip until the first of March, when I visit the OM Hungary team. I am grateful for some concentrated time in Vienna to enjoy living in the City and getting more settled in. Read more »
