Team Arrives Safely in Accra

[Accra, Ghana – 16 Sept. 0945 lt] – After a couple of days of travel, Jeff Andler and I have arrived in Ghana.  After a good night’s rest and a great breakfast we are waiting for the arrival of Drs. David Ney and James McLean.  Once these men clear customs we will climb into our Land Rovers and travel the three hours or so out to Akosombo for the first stage of our ministry project. The weather here is very pleasant.  The temperature this morning is a wonderful 80 degrees with virtually no humidity.  It would be a complete blessing...

Our ministry in Ghana begins …

The time of departure is at hand.  The months of preparation have reportedly made things ready for our arrival.  Although team member, Nick Olilla has been on the ground in Accra since Sunday, (9.11.11) Jeff Andler and I are leaving this afternoon at 4:20 on a flight to Frankfurt, Germany.  We will overnight in Germany and then connect to our flight to Accra on Thursday afternoon and are scheduled to arrive in Ghana that evening.  (Team members, Drs. David Ney and James McLean will depart on Thursday and arrive in Ghana on Friday morning.) Our project will be difficult but...

Remembering 9.11

As the nation prepares to remember the tragedy of September 11, 2001 -- the day when the worst of the worst of the human race displayed the very soul of sinful humanity -- our hearts are hopefully turned toward Jesus Christ. On that day, ten years ago, we witnessed the depravity of man, fleshed out through cowards under the cloak of a fanatical Islamist group who were devoid of genuine character. You and I, now ten years removed from the pain of that day, must ever be reminded of our need to be in an intimate, personal walk with the...

The Time Has Come

The time has come for us to share the Gospel with passion, persistence , and power. It seems to me that our ministry of evangelism must move forward with more intensity than ever before. While it might be safe to say that the church has had some moments of effective evangelism, the current global data reveals that we must do more. Presently nearly 6 out of 7 people in the world are without Christ! This sobering reality causes me to realize that whatever we have been doing is not enough. We must find a way to share the gospel with...

Football Games and Evangelism

This past weekend began (for nearly everyone) the college football season. For all the teams it began with eyes on the prize. That prize, the title of champion! Now we know there are several different championships, but every team on the field is aspiring to their particular championship. With that said, how did it go? Well, half the teams are undefeated, and the other half are 0-1 -- they lost, they were defeated, they are deflated, but none of them are destroyed. It was, for all the teams, the first step in the rest of the season. Some of the...

Daddy is a Wonderful word

Earlier this week I head a local news report detail how the new head coach of our NFL team had taken time from his hectic schedule to toss the softball with his daughter.  Not a big deal you might think, but given the pressure of leading a professional football team out of the seller, it was a time and priority issue.  He made the right choice. This story caused me to reflect on some of my fondest memories of my on daddy.  He had retired from the US Navy and was working for the NC Department of Corrections where tensions...
