First Short Story Has Been Released

I am excited! While I have a couple of my non-fiction books available, my first fiction story in an anthology has just been published! It can be found by clicking either the front cover or the back cover of the book below. The title is One Last Performance and it’s the story of an aging actor’s last performance. I had fun writing it and I hope you have fun reading it. The cost is $8.99 for the paperback and $2.99 for the Kindle. It’s also on Kindle Unlimited, so it’s available at no extra cost there.

   

And…if there’s a first, there has to be a second, right? I have another short story coming out August 7. More on that later.

Preparing For Rwanda Trip – 2018

Dear Friends,

I am thrilled to share with you that this June, Lucy (my wife) and I will be working with a team of educators in Rwanda through Africa New Life Ministries (ANLM) for our second time. Our trip will have three primary purposes.

We will:
1) Provide professional development for the teachers who work in the several ANLM schools,
2) Encourage the hardworking teachers and their amazing students.
3) Visit each sponsored child and family related to our group.

This trip is a very special opportunity for us since God has laid a burden on our hearts for the Rwandan people. Since our first trip God has only deepened our love for this country and its people. We are blessed to call many of these fellow educators and ministry leaders friends and brothers and sisters in Christ. We’re humbled by the opportunity to share, encourage and co-labor with these amazing people.

We’d like you to be part of this exciting ministry and would be grateful of your support. While you may not be traveling with us, we need your prayers. In addition, we would greatly appreciate any financial support you may contribute. The cost for this trip will be around $4,500 per person, and we must be fully funded by May. Please read below to find out how you can donate for our trip through ANLM.

Thank you for your support, especially through prayer. Our specific requests are for:

  • Travel mercies
  • Health
  • God’s use of us as His hands, feet, and heart in Rwanda
  • Faithfulness in sharing the gospel while we’re there

Blessings,

Bob James
