On Mission for Jesus

“Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes, and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest.” John 4:35, NASB I know. I’ve written about this verse before. Yet I can’t resist sharing more. Do you, like me, read and wonder, Where? Where are the fields that are white for harvest? Most of the people I interact with are Christians.

As deadlines loom and family joys occur, my focus scatters. I’m so busy contemplating one thought to the next that I struggle to accomplish daily goals. Subsequently, I look forward to reminiscing as I write, remembering the simplicity of ministering in Nicaragua. Our goal each day consisted […]

“May the beloved of the LORD dwell in security by Him, Who shields him all the day, And he dwells between His shoulders.” Deuteronomy 33:12, NASB Dear Readers, It’s great to be home! Thanks for your love, prayers, and support. So much happened in the past few weeks that I struggle with what to share. Perhaps some snapshots will say it best… 3/16/17 – Jehovah-Shammah Our ZMI team met at the Charlotte Douglas Airport at 4:30 am. My Mark and our eldest son, Everett, accompanied me […]
