Way back in the 1970s when bell bottom pants, big hair, and tie-dye shirts were all the rage, LOGOI’s founder, the late Dr. Les Thompson was also pastoring a church. Those were wonderful years. Dad preached, Mom taught Sunday School, my brothers and I sang quartets, and somebody always brought banana pudding to the Wednesday night potluck dinner.
There is an interesting map on the homepage of LOGOI’s FiveDollarMission.com website. It’s an interactive map highlighting the countries where you can find our National Missionaries. You can zoom in on the pinpoints to see how many in a particular country have registered to be part of our LOGOI family.
With over 30,000 national missionaries and more joining our family every day, it’s proven to be a bit of a challenge to keep it up-to-date.
As expected, countries in Latin America dominate. As I write this letter to you, for example, we have some 1,469 in Colombia…
I’ve always enjoyed treasure hunting stories. Searching for fabulous lost treasures, finding them, and somehow escaping all the elaborate, hidden traps guarding them sounded like an exciting career choice when I was younger.

My Dad kept his wallet in his back right pocket. I remember it being thick and full of things like credit cards, business cards, a little cash, and notes he had torn from pieces of paper.

My Dad’s favorite singer was Perry Como, or as Bing Crosby referred to him, “the man who invented casual.” I can picture Dad sitting in the living room with his eyes closed and head tilted back soaking up Como’s every note. “Now that is a singer,” he would say, “every note is effortless.” “Mr.… Read More»
APPARENTLY, what my mother really wants this Mother’s Day is a Miami Dolphin’s t-shirt. At least that’s what the email I just received says. I’m a bit confused, however, because another email said what my mother really wants is an iPad. Macy’s tells me she really wants a particular heart-shaped necklace and Sharper Image says… Read More»
As I write this, I’m sitting in a hospital room in Miami looking over my son. He’s trying to sleep but the pain keeps waking him up. Parents absolutely hate seeing their children suffer. We would willingly take their place in an instant if possible but, of course, we are often helpless to do anything… Read More»
The late George Carlin had a wonderful routine about the differences between football and baseball. “The objectives of the two games are totally different,” he explained. “In football,” Carlin said in a tough military voice, “the object is for the quarterback, otherwise known as the field general, to be on target with his aerial assault… Read More»
