muchas oportunidades

Thank you for your continued prayers for Mindy and me as we continue to labor here in South America. The past four weeks have been busy and very fruitful. Multiple Hebrew-English New Testaments have gone out to various guests, Gospel tracts have been distributed to hikers along various trekking routes around San Carlos de Bariloche, and we have had opportunity to open-air preach to the public.

bibles & blankets

We are very grateful for those who recently gave toward the purchase of blankets for the elderly and new mothers in Nepali villages. These are a real blessing for the villagers during the cold; and they are an avenue for meeting a real need in the spirit of James 2:15-16 while preaching the Gospel of Jesus the Messiah to those who have never heard.

advent devotionals

I prepared these Advent devotionals for the families of a local church to use for four weeks during this Advent season. I challenge you to use these at any time of the year as a tool for learning how to dig deeper into the Holy Scriptures.

heritage of honor

In light of the events sweeping our country, the latest prairie fire having been sparked in Charlottesville, Virginia last week, it only seems appropriate to pull an old paper I wrote back in 2002 out of the dusty file bin and make it available online . . .

gloria al Dios

Greetings from the Peruvian Andes. As I sit here penning this ministry update, I'm staring out the huge bay window of our apartment in Huaraz at the Cordillera Blanca and the double peak of Huascaran (22,205 ft.), the highest mountain in Peru. My soul sings Toda la gloria del Creador de estas montanas, gloria al Dios pos las opportunidades en esta lugar.

that's why we go to them

They really appreciated the teaching and implored us to continue coming to teach them sound doctrine. These pastors and leaders don't have much training, and it's very difficult for them to leave their families and flocks for long trainings in Kathmandu. That's why we are going to them . . .

reaching the ends of the field

Shalom, dear friends, from Indian Railways! This update is being penned as I sit in transit between the coastal Indian state of Goa and the northern hill station of Dehradun. The two places are more than 2,000 kilometers apart. Journeys like this make me think of the disciples in the Book of Acts and how they too must have written some of their letters to the churches while they were in transit . . .

i heard the bells

The angels saw fit to celebrate the birth of the Christ child (Hebrews 1:6), so should we; but not simply His birth during a single season of the year. Celebrate His incarnation, His death, His burial, His resurrection, and His soon coming to "rule all nations with a rod of iron" (Revelation 12:5), a daily celebration worthy of all seasons. And, to truly celebrate is to ANNUNCIATE . . .

am israel chai

Over the past few weeks there has been a big increase in attacks from Palestinian Muslims on the Jewish Israeli citizens. The media has been covering these attacks, but if you simply follow the misleading headlines then you will fail to understand what is happening over there . . .

the blessed hope

Praise God that the Church has been delivered from the wrath to come (I Thessalonians 1:10).  We are not promised deliverance from the wrath of men or the wrath of the devil. Even now, by these we are troubled on every side. But, what's coming is the WRATH OF GOD poured out upon this world. And, from that, the saint has been promised deliverance--as Enoch was delivered, as just Lot was delivered . . .
