As I mentioned earlier (Day 7), statistics indicate that at least one million people each day are seeking insights on the Internet into the deeper questions of life. In a remarkable way we began connecting with thousands of such people (like you) from all corners of the world -- over 170 countries within a few weeks.

正如我早期提及的(第7天的导航),有统计表明每天至少一百万人正在通过网络寻找人生深层问题的解答。以一种惊奇的方式,我们开始跟数千名来自世界各地的人联系(如你一样),几周内就超出170个国家。

More than 12 percent of those visiting the site indicated that as a result of their visit, they had made a decision to follow Christ. Frankly, I was stunned. Internet technology, so often used for wrong purposes (like pornography) was becoming a means by which people throughout the Earth could find new life in Christ. We were able to track countries of inquiry, and they included the US, India, the UK, the Philippines, Nigeria, Pakistan, Canada and South Africa, and though less in number, places like Burundi, Cuba, Iran, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Fiji, Malta and Lesotho through such search words as "The meaning of life," "God," "Hope," and "Life after death."

超过12%的人访问网站,结果他们做出决定信仰基督。坦白地说,我很震惊。常用于不良信息传播(如色情)的网络技术成为全球人们在基督教获得新人生的一种工具。我们可以跟踪申请的国家,他们有美国,印度,英国,菲律宾,尼日利亚,巴基斯坦,加拿大和南非,也有布隆迪,古巴,伊朗,阿拉伯联合酋长国,沙特阿拉伯,阿拉伯,斐济,马耳他,但人数不多,他们搜索“人生的意义”,“上帝”,“死亡的生命”。

In July, as my wife, Wendy, and I were beginning a summer vacation, I developed a strong concern for new believers, wondering what materials might be available to help you become more firmly established in your faith. When I didn't find much in the way of help, I felt strongly directed to be part of the answer. That is when I began writing this 30-day study. I consulted with Mark and he was thrilled. He, too, had been sensing the need for such material, even to the point of it covering a 30-day time span.

在7月,我和我的妻子,温蒂(wendy)开始度暑假,我开始关注新信徒,想知道什么资料可帮助你更坚定你的信念。当我没有找到帮助你的方法,我的直觉告诉我这是问题的答案。自此,我开始写30天导航。我跟马克咨询,他很兴奋。他也强烈感觉需要这样一个资料。甚至它的关键点要涵盖30天的学习内容。

Now, as I write, I feel a growing "connection" with you. I can say, as Paul said to the Philippian believers, "I thank my God every time I remember you" (Philippians 1:3 NIV). You and I will likely never meet, at least not here on earth. But I want to affirm that you are dear to Wendy and me, and more importantly, you are very precious to God.

现在,我边写,边感觉我在跟你联系。我可以说,正如保罗对腓立比的信徒说,“每次我记起你时,我感谢我的上帝”(腓立比1:3 NIV)。你和我可能从未会面,至少在地球上。但是,我想证实你对我和温蒂很好。更重要的说,你对上帝很珍贵。

Now I want to encourage you. Keep on the journey. Don't give up! God has a wonderful adventure planned for you. Whatever you face, always remember that God is faithful. If you let Him, He will complete the process for which He created you, and fulfill every purpose for which you were redeemed.

现在,我想鼓励你,继续你的旅途。不要放弃!上帝给你计划了一个奇妙的征途。无论你面对什么,总记住上帝是忠诚的。如果你听任他,他将完成整个塑造你的历程,完成救赎你的每一个目的。
