Headed Home [Brong Ahafo Region, Ghana] Our evangelistic project has just ended. God allowed us to share the gospel in 138 venues and witness 38,093 individuals indicate their first-time decision for Christ. Even though these numbers are staggering we have been reminded that there are 15,000 unreached villages here with a Muslim population in excess of 5 million people. Therefore the unfinished task ahead of us is both daunting and demanding. The grace of God has been evident in all our work. The fact that He organized for our first-ever medical clinic was amazing. Unknown to the American team was...

Weekend Update [Brong Ahafo Region, Ghana] It is Sunday here in Ghana. We are winding down from a busy two weeks of ministry here and are thankful for a day of rest. Since our arrival on Tuesday, February 15 our team has completed 91 separate ministry venues in villages, towns, schools, medical clinics, and film crusades. We have traversed difficult terrain and ventured where few, in some cases any, whites have previously been. It is still amusing to witness many of the people rub our hands and arms to see if our “color” will come off! Thus far we have...
The Work and Workers of the Gospel

The Work and Workers of the Gospel

Dr. Philip Ridenou Last Monday, I received the news that my friend and colleague, Dr. Philip Ridenour had died.  Philip, an American living in Ghana for the past ten years (or so) has served the Lord faithfully, without recognition, in some of the most dangerous areas of the country. His death was unexpected and gives reason for questions. Dr. Philip was a big man with a big heart.  His infectious smile was always an encouragement to everyone who met him.  Our projects in Ghana were always easier once we had met and visited with Philip. As a gifted eye-doctor and...
A Day in the Snow

A Day in the Snow

One of those, "rare snow storms" has made its way through Charlotte. It's beautiful sitting in our family room looking out on the yard and woods behind our house.  The insulation factor of the snow certainly makes everything seem still, hushed, and clean.  Of course, if one needs to venture out (presumably for bread, milk, and eggs) the snow presents challenges, dangers, and potential peril. Mary and I are pretty content to just sit in front of the fire, watch the snow, read a book or watch a movie or two. The convenience of technology makes it possible for me...
1111 — Happy New Year

1111 — Happy New Year

My eager expectation and hope [is] that I shall never have reason to feel ashamed, but that by my perfect freedom of speech Christ will be glorified in me ...  --Phil. 1:20 (NTIMS) It seems like just yesterday that all the geeks were warning us about Y2K and all the problems that would certainly be associated with that.  Now we stand at 1111 -- the first day of a new decade.  This is a day of new beginnings and fresh starts. On this first day of January many people are making resolutions for the coming year. Throughout this year of...
