John 14:27 NIV
This month, we pray that you will wake each day with the peace of victory assured through Christ.
Last time we told you where DragonRaid has been. This time, we’ll begin talking about where we’re headed, starting with an important shift in branding. Change can be a little jarring. We know. We’re asking for your understanding and support.
You’ve seen the social media posts. Everything is “Lightraider this,” and “Lightraider that.” Why? Why not DragonRaid?
Going forward, we are choosing to lead with the light in our story rather than the dragons, which represent darkness. This change is decades in the making and is a result of a great deal of experience and feedback. We do not make it lightly. The short version is this: Our goal—our commission—is to spread the light of Jesus and to prepare other Christ-followers to do the same. That light must be the center of how we present ourselves to the world.
Thus, you will see things like Lightraider Academy, Lightraider Quest, and StarLots. Bear with us for more!
A nd there's more good news!
Dick Wulf’s cancer is in remission. This is a huge Praise God! Dick, creator of DragonRaid is now in full stride with his Heaven Beckons project No matter where you are in life, Dick has an important message for you about looking forward to Heaven.

N ow for our next Character Profile:
James Hannibal, our new author and develper, is a product of the original DragonRaid who viewed his time at the US Air Force Academy as the closest he could get to LightRaider Academy. He went on to fly the A-10 Warthog, the Predator UAS, and classified missions in the B-2 Spirit (stealth bomber). He is now an author with stories published all over the world. His first Christian series debuts this fall from Revell Books. When not writing, he can be found at the controls of a 787 Dreamliner, hauling passengers back and forth across the oceans.
James creates stories by walking for miles and miles in the Houston humidity, ignoring the swampy muks (worry warts) who lay beside the path and whisper “Deadlines! Deadlines! You’ll never make them!”
