Thank God for Partners

Far too often we think we are working alone. I have been coming to Ghana since 2001. During these 19 years I’ve been blessed to witness God do some incredible things — 100’s of thousands of people have indicated a personal decision to follow Christ, and well over 1,000,000 people have heard the Gospel. This is a wonderful testimony to the mighty work of God! Another thing I know is that none of this would have happened alone. My work in Ghana began when an evangelist from Texas, Rev. Mack Kearney of Gospel Harvesters International, invited me to join his...

It’s Sunday morning

It’s about 0430 here in Ghana. The rains are falling outside our window and the sound is both refreshing and relaxing. Other than the sound of the rain, everything is quiet. Our accommodations here have been more than adequate, a testimony to the pre-project planning of our leadership here in Africa. These men have been being prepared for their new roles here over the past decade and a half and I am thankful for all who have poured into these men and women through the years. The true proof to our leadership is revealed in the lives and work of...

The passing of my friend

I received a text message last night that told me of the passing of Bobby W. Poe. Most of you reading this do not know the man, but I did. He is the first person I remember in life who was not a part of my immediate family. What I mean is that I cannot think of a person I have known longer than Bobby — I have known him for more than 59 years. Bobby is the dad to our ministry colleague, Andy Poe who did not come on this project because of the rapidly declining health of his...

From a Driver to a Preacher

On Thursday morning I had to opportunity to see a tangible result of what we’ve been doing in West Africa for a while. A few projects back we had a “first-time” driver with us named Gershon and he has been with us ever since. He is a nice young man who is gifted with mechanical abilities (and especially as an automobile mechanic) like few I have ever met. Regardless of what happens with one of our vehicles, or other equipment, he can get it up and running again efficiently and effectively. We are blessed to have Gershon. This young man...


Too often we want to make things more difficult than they need to be. Each day I am reminded that God will always honor faithfulness. Thus far our team here (through Wednesday noon) has shared the Gospel in 75 venues, to a total audience of 17,349 individuals! Each day we all do the same thing over and over again. When we are tempted to change the message or the method we just remember to Keep it Simple ... Sometimes we are in schools where there are lots and lots of children. Some people will say, “Those little children do not...

Can God Be Trusted?

The Psalmist wrote, “O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do.” Psalms 139:1-3 NLT Through the years many of you who read, follow, pray, and support our work around the globe have said, “Is it safe for you to travel right now? Each of us greatly appreciates your thoughts, love, and concern, but I want to remind you of the scripture...
