It has often been said that first impressions are lasting impressions. While not sure if that is always true, I am certain that our eyes affect our hearts. This principle is taught in God's Word, and has been played out over and over again throughout history. What we see does affect our hearts. Often all it takes is a peek, just a little peek, and the impression can become a "lasting impression."
With God's help, this is exactly what we want to do in this short book... make a lasting impression. My prayer is that God will open our eyes as we take a peek into a window-the 10/40 Window. Many millions of people in this world are lost without Christ, and the vast majority of them have very little hope of ever hearing the Good News of the Gospel. Will you be willing to take a peek into the 10/40 Window along with me and see if we can leave a lasting impression?
By peeking into the 10/40 Window and having our hearts moved with compassion to either "go to the field" or financially support those who surrender to go and do our part in praying, then writing this book has been a good investment of my time and yours.
