Finally to Project Site

[Sunday, 16 February]Our entire team made the uneventful journey from Accra to our local project site where we were greeted by the full contingency of local church leaders who will be our hosts for the next two weeks. They were all eager to welcome us and share the plan for the next steps along the way. Our local hotel is adequate and is beginning to feel like home. The weather is very hot and the harmattan winds are bringing more and more dust upon us all. Thank you for continuing to keep us all in your prayers. Four teams are...

Team Safely Arrives in Ghana

[Accra, Ghana … 1520 Ghana Time]  After an eventful start of the day, our team all safely arrived in Ghana.  Our travel from our home cities was not without trials. Jeff and I were delayed in Charlotte for a few hours due to the heavy rains in much of the eastern USA.  We finally got to Washington, but it took nearly two hours to make it through the havoc (that is Washington). We met Andy there and we patiently waited on Mark Chase who had the biggest challenge of all.  He’s flight from Greenville, SC was repeatedly delayed and eventually...

Time to Cast the Nets

42 years ago TODAY, Mary said “I do!” It’s been a great journey and she is still today my sweetheart. In just a few short days a team of evangelists will leave the comforts and normal of our homes and families and set out on an intense missionary/ministry project to Ghana, West Africa. Although all of us have been going to West Africa for many years, each trip brings with it new challenges and opportunities. None of us have ever been even close to the areas we are scheduled to be in this time – and that is always cause...

Pray for the harvest

On February 13, our team leaves for Ghana for the first ministry project of 2020. I’m looking forward to working alongside of ministry partners, Jeff Andler, Mark Chase, and Andy Poe in what we are praying will be a wonderful Kingdom harvest of souls. Our national team has been working for the past 4 months preparing for this effort. Please continue to pray for them and the difficult circumstances in that country. It’s hard to fathom that we have been doing these projects since 2001. Through the years, I have been blessed to work alongside some of the best people...

Seeking Godly Counsel

“Without guidance, people fall, but with many counselors there is safety.” - Proverbs 11:14 One of the foundational lessons in Scripture is the importance of seeking, finding, and heeding Godly counsel in our lives. In my experiences the most successful people in life rightly respond to counsel. Solomon, in Proverbs 15:22 wrote, “Refuse good advice and watch your plans fail; take good counsel and watch them succeed.” There are so many people (including some of us) who run away from wise counsel, until we are in deep trouble. Wise counsel is not just for the earth shaking, major decisions in...

The Love Test Checklist

The thing that I have been working on with our team in Africa and here is been around the theme of becoming more engaged through relationships. There is something I think we all need to be reminded of in regards to relationships. What do you think the common denominator is in all relationships? Now the greatest relationship of all is the one that God provides for us through Christ. When Jesus was asked by the religious leaders of his day what was the most important Law (for getting right with God) Jesus replied,   Love the Lord your God with...
