Guatemala needs the Gospel

As we travel around the globe planting churches through evangelism and discipleship it’s easy to make friends. I never thought though that Guatemala and its colorful people would influence me so deeply. At one of our training session a 70-year old pastor came to me …. lay his head on my chest and […]

Jailed in Angola

Angola is a beautiful country with amazing people. Vibrant, growing …..but the latest policies by government to restrict churches changed everything. We found some of our pastors jailed by planting new churches. What is behind all of this? We have planted nearly 1 000 churches by the time I left Angola […]

Loving the Indigenous

Sharing a few highlights just as the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world. To truly do successful missions you have to …. have to …. have to ….. LOVE THE INDIGENOUS. For the next few months I will share some of these amazing moments which we undertook through Harvesters!

Africa’s GOLD!

If you have been long enough in Africa you would know exactly what I say if I mention Africa’s children. Personally my favorite sound in the whole wide world (no it’s not blues …..) it is the sound of African children laughing. Well …. any kind laughing …. but let me focus on […]

For years they had followed a man who claimed to be the messiah. Recently he had become ill, and then to everyone’s shock, he died. For […]

A forgotten island …

As we fly into Bluefields, Nicaragua – we are greeted by a thunderstorm ….. low clouds and gusting winds.  I find myself hugged in my seat in the small Caravan watching the pilot lining himself up with the runway.

Bluefields is connected with the presence on the Nicaraguan Caribbean coast of many pirates, subjects of powers at the time […]

What Keeps You from Going?

 

If everyone is a missionary, then no one is.

If “my mission field is the ground beneath my feet,” as some have said, then why should we expend the energy or resources to go to a foreign land and learn a new language and culture? In fact, it would be a waste of resources to do […]

The Dead Heart of Africa ……

It’s 2’o Clock in the morning – we have long ago left the dry wind of the Sahara desert.  We are speeding through the dark of night and my GPS confirms the fact that we are in dangerous territory.  The nearly full moon lights up the Cameroon jungle far away.  The route is well known […]
