MISSION: Is it about people? Yes!



OCTOBER 2016

Is it about poverty? Yes!

Most importantly, it is about pointing people, rich or poor, to a personal relationship with God through the person and work of Jesus Christ!

Look and see what GOD has done!

At the end of my recent visit in Ethiopia, having landed via helicopter, I had the joy to open God's Word and share with leaders of the 242 churches in the Yirgacheffe district representing tens of thousands of Christ followers.  REJOICE!  Yes, this is what God has done!

Grace and I headed there 33 years ago with our family to begin our ministry. A challenging time marked by war, famine and an underground church. Now look at what God has brought out of that context!

How can I express my feelings except to say this visit was a time of exuberant joy. After preaching, these Ethiopian godly leaders had me kneel on the floor. Surrounding me, they began to pray for me and thank God for all that He has done. What more can one ask for?!!!!

Thank you, Lord for what YOU have done!
