Although this project has been in the making for almost three years, it only went live on the Web at around Christmas 2008. Since then, through personal challenges and changes, it’s grown into a worldwide phenomenon — and I’m NOT exaggerating.
First off, some numbers:
READ IT: As of October 19, 2009, more than 2,000 people have viewed “A Message From God” on Scribd! That includes 54 downloads and added to 30 reading lists. When you factor in the people who have received it via email (and probably forwarded to some of their loved ones), it’s safe to say that nearly 3,000 people have been exposed to it. That’s simply awesome and humbling to me.
WATCHED IT: The video on YouTube has been viewed 620 times. Hot spots around the world: South Africa, The Philippines, Argentina and the U.K.
FACEBOOKED IT: There are now more than 250 fans on the AMFG Facebook page. What’s fascinating to me is how the message seems to be resonating with young people in The Philippines, Singapore and the surrounding areas. In fact, about 110 of those fans are from Southern Asia and the Pacific Islands. There are fans in India, Bahrain, Sudan and Pakistan. And if you’re not a fan yet on Facebook, what are you waiting for?
I want to thank each of you reading this for participating in this project, and for sharing it with those you love. There have been times when I’ve hesitated about moving forward with this project, mostly out of fear. But through it all, I’ve been able to quiet the fearful noises and listen to the quiet voice of The Author, which has given me that legendary “blessed assurance.” The more I watch this project touch lives, the more grateful I am to be its messenger.
In the coming months, look for more features and additions to the site, including more bloggers from various belief systems, a recommended reading list, live chats and more video content. Stay tuned!
All that said, I’d love to hear your feedback! If you’ve read “A Message From God,” watched the video, or read any of the blogs, speak up! The object of this was never to have a one way communication. Post a message on one of the blog posts to let me know what you think!
Onward and upward,
