Streams meet and merge until they have made a mighty current. In the same way, the success of any entrepreneurial or ministerial endeavor […]

Shepherd on the Mountain

Shepherd on the Mountain

We all have mountains to climb and burdens to carry. Last month I found myself climbing a steep mountain in a distant country. The undefined pathway pointed ever upward and my photography backpack added forty pounds to every step. I soon regretted the purchase of “slip on” walking shoes in lieu of the more cumbersome […]

Medicine is extremely hard to come by. There is however one thing that is not in short supply: guns and ammunition. Soldiers walking around with […]

I Want to Thank You for Changing My Life

I Want to Thank You for Changing My Life

It is hard to put into words the things that have happened in northern Uganda. An unimaginably evil man named Joseph Koney led by “7 spirits” decided to attack the Ugandan government. He formed a cult rebel group and named it “The Lords Resistance Army (LRA).”

The Happiest Person in all the World

The Happiest Person in all the World

I asked a missionary in Kenya to help me understand the rights of the poor and needy. “Everyone has the right to hear the gospel” she said. “Jesus paid for that right when He died on the cross. If a government is so corrupt that people are beaten down and not allowed to listen to the gospel, or people are so hungry that they cannot hear the gospel over the growl of their stomach, it is our job as Christians to defend their rights and share with them Christ’s love”.
