Decade of Destiny Update #12
Dear Saddleback Family
I want you to know that I PERSONALLY write every word of News & Views. It’s my personal connection to you as your pastor. I type every one of these letters myself.
THIS WEEK WITH DECADE OF DESTINY:
1. THREE REASONS TO BRING YOUR FRIENDS THIS WEEKEND!
* My message, God’s Prescription for Great Health, is a topic of great interest.
* Interviews with Dr. Mehmet Oz, Dr. Daniel Amen & Dr. Mark Hyman! Come watch my interviews with these three New York Times best-selling doctors who have agreed to help Saddleback with a one-year program to get healthy!
* Saddleback’s Community Health Expo this weekend! Click here to check out the map for the Lake Forest campus.
2. SADDLEBACK IS FOR YOUNG FAMILIES!
Our first Decade of Destiny outreach to young families, Blocktober, on Halloween was a huge success! Over 10,000 children… plus their parents and adult friends swarmed the Saddleback campus for a great community party!
Enjoy of few of the notes kids have sent me
· Pastor Rick, meeting you at Blocktober was like meeting Mickey at Disneyland! Erin
· I feel great when I am at this church, so thank you for building this church for us. Mark
· Great job changing my parents Pastor Rick! Megan
· Pastor Rick, how did you get so nice? Hope
· All my friends know I go to the big church with big pastor who gives big hugs. Alex
· Pastor Rick, U R the dizzle! Tabby
· Pastor Rick, my mom has turned into a really great person ever since you came into her life. We can’t wait until each Sunday for Decade of Destiny. Megan
· Dear Pastor Rick, you may not know, this but you are pretty famous. A lot of people know about Jesus because of you and our church. That is a good thing. Mia
· Thank you for bringing Jesus into my dad’s life. It changed my family. Brian
· I think it is cool that our pastor goes on trips around the globe to help others, including presidents. Love, Megan
· When I heard your eyes got injured, I thought, there was no way that being blind is going to stop Pastor Rick. You are like Chuck Norris! Joey
· I haven’t been to this church before, but I have heard a lot about you. You seem like a really cool guy.
· My dad loves you, so I think you must be really awesome! Marissa
· You’re a really good teacher that makes it fun to learn. Could you also teach at my school? Jessica
3. THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE SIGNED UP TO FOLLOW GOD’S FINANCIAL PLAN
Over 100 people told me that last weekend’s message was the most important and life-changing message they’d ever heard.
* To WATCH God’s Plan for Financial Blessing
* To WATCH Ronnie Andrew’s amazing testimony of how he started a company six years ago based on God’s financial principles that sold to GE last week for $589 million!
* To WATCH the historic Decade of Destiny vision message.
4. I NEED YOUR NAME TO RECEIVE YOUR AWARD!
Next weekend, (Nov 13-14) I will present a PEACE Ambassador Medal of Service to every person who has served on a Saddleback Missions Project (national or international) or was a prayer partner for someone who went, or helped financially support someone on a trip.
