Step into the River

It took several years to heed the call, but I recently returned with the Mt. Bethel Missions team from Bolivia. As you might expect me to say, it was a fantastic experience.

UnBELIZEable

Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. When I first spoke to a Belizean missionary in 2011 about a school they wanted to build in the capital city of Belmopan, I was just looking for…

What is God Doing in the Middle East?

In November of 2012, I had the privilege of going to Cairo Egypt for an ILI (International Leadership Institute) Conference with Christian leaders from 14 Arab speaking nations. Words cannot describe what I felt as I heard Christian leaders from places like Yemen, Iraq, and the Gaza Strip share testimonies about putting there lives at…
