An unlikely defender

“Hey, did you know your fuel tank cap is missing?” Mr. Enrique asked when I pulled up in “Ogre,” our dilapidated Nissan Condor truck, to give him a jump-start.

“What? Ooh no!”

It was a face-palm moment: yet another numbskull move to mark against my name!

“I must have forgotten to put it back on when I fueled […]

The Road Will Break Our Taxis

The Road Will Break Our Taxis

…came the repeated reply.

After four hours on a bus, two hours waiting for a taxi and a long ride down a bumpy, dusty road, we finally arrived at this semi-remote airstrip. After meeting with the village officials and taking a look at the runway, we asked to travel on.

The next […]

Just a Couple More Divine Arrangements

“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think…” Ephesians 3:20

I often unintentionally underestimate God. Otherwise how could I be so surprised when He often answers my too-general, small-faith prayers in such flabbergasting ways?

This year, as usual, we began searching for tickets at least a month before […]

Up date

This past month has FLOWN by! We have been busy and God has been good. The treatment of our dear Muslim friend is continuing. She is slowly showing improvement. God is so good. Her husband is a very interesting person. Once several years ago, he tried to get us to argue about religion. We tried […]

Give and it shall be given unto you…

Give and it shall be given unto you: good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over shall men give into your bosom…” Luke 6:38

We were able to discharge or graduate 29 […]

New approach

(Search on a google map for Bere Adventist Hospital and you will be able to get a good idea of where we are in Tchad. I would […]

A week of prayer

I wanted to thank each of you who have been praying with and for me last week during the week of prayer at a local Seventh Day Adventist collage where I was invited to speak. The collage consists of two major groups, one of them Christian, the other Muslim. I was tasked with the responsibility […]

Flea Market Colporteur

Last June while I was home I decided I needed to get rid of some of my stuff and free up more storage space for my parents. J A cousin referred me to a flea market about 30 minutes from home where you can rent two tables for $20 and sell to your heart’s content! […]

The Great Controversy Manual Book

Since coming to my grandparents’ house in Idaho I have been working a part-time job for a retired veterinarian and his wife, Jim and Barb, from New York. This morning Grandma asked that God would make my new job into a missionary endeavor. I prayed that I would not miss any opportunities to illustrate the […]
