Greetings all, Wow, what a trip! I want to thank each of you for your prayers while I was gone. It was a “packed full” time, to say the least, both spending time with our precious Wana brothers and sisters along with making numerous consultant visits with our missionary teams serving in the region.
Greetings All! Great news this morning as I received my visa entry permit for traveling to Asia Pacific. Little by little everything is coming together and items getting checked off for departure mid-September. It is hard to believe that is only 3 ½ weeks away!
Greetings All! “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations……” I want you to meet one of our young Wana disciples, “Arpen.” The Lord has placed this young man into my life and in so doing gave me a real blessing. Arpen has a real desire to learn and to serve the Lord. HeContinue reading July 2023
Greetings all, We trust you all are enjoying the start of a new summer. The haze from the Canadian forest fires reminds me of the same kind of haze we get in Asia Pacific during the dry season when people are burning their gardens. There have been times our bush pilots cannot fly because theContinue reading June 2023

Greetings all, In working on Judges drafts & lessons, I find in my study that some commentators/preachers like to point out all the weaknesses and negatives of these “Judges” of old, including Gideon. Yes, they surely had their weaknesses and faults, but I sometimes think the big picture of what God is trying to teachContinue reading Christmas greetings 2022
Greetings all, I am going to try and do something a little different this time. Attached is a short video that was recorded Sunday evening as I had the opportunity to meet with the new believers via Skype and study God’s word together with them. I am hoping that you will be able to openContinue reading December 2022
Greetings all, We are so excited about what is happening in one of the Wana villages! The new believers there quickly realized that meeting in small houses and in the tent was not the best and that they needed some sort of a provisional church building. This past month they took it upon themselves toContinue reading November 2022

Greetings all, Just wanted to send you all a little update on some of the happenings in Wana. The outreach in a new village continues on and sometime next month they should be presenting the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
Dear Co-workers, It is hard to believe that we are already into the month of July! Since our last letter, we have had to say a difficult goodbye to our kids as they left back for Peru, South America on May 24. It was such a blessing to have them with us during their homeContinue reading July 2022

We were missing some very important people around the table that dayContinue reading December 2021
Dear friends, The ground was all white as we looked out the window this morning. So, November 1 marks our first snow of the season.
