Meditations on Our Mission

After days of flying it takes a little time for your body (and your mind) to get back to normal! I’m not sure I am completely there but each day I am able to reflect a little more on our recent gospel work in Asia. While I am rejoicing in the work we were able to do, I am increasingly aware that He was also doing something in me. God has a way of holding class in unusual places. Here are a few of the truths He spoke to me about… The humanity of all people. She was a beautiful little girl. As she looked across the aisle of the plane at me and smiled, I saw my own girls…

Would You Join Our Gospel Team?

Partner With Us

The Apostle Paul rarely ever ministered alone. For each gospel advance he enlisted and engaged a missionary team. In his words, “we are labourers together with God” (1 Corinthians 3:9). Some plant.

A Worldwide Blessing

I have always loved the thought of visiting foreign lands.  My mind is still fresh with memories from my first trip outside of the United States.  It was a thrill to minister in Ghana, West Africa and Cairo, Egypt.  The faces of little children, beautiful children, remain in my thoughts to this day. My dad and I had the privilege of traveling to Ammon, Jordan several years ago to help train Iraqi pastors who would go back and start new churches.  Part of the joy of the journey is spending time with your travel companions.  It was a special thing to be with my dad and best friend for so many days. Tammy and I will always cherish the opportunity…
