I almost started packing up the house the other day.

We had just agreed to present our adoption profile to a couple, and after we read about them and their reason for choosing adoption I just fell in love with these two and their unborn child. I really hoped that we'd b...

Nothing brings us quite as much joy in our ministry as seeing local believers being the Church.

For missionaries and ministry leaders it's really easy to become discouraged when those we are trying to lead are happily complacent just sitting in their pews of tradition....

Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, "Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.” Jesus answered him, “Tru...

A while back on Facebook I shared a post that said, "What do you think my life is like? Only use gifs." Nineteen people ended up sharing a gif on that post.

One was missionary/Jesus related.

Take a second (if you don't mind) and define "kingdom work". What does that look like? What does it not look like?

We were recently at a meeting where we met several dozen missionaries from all over Africa and got to hear their stories about what type of kingd...

A lot of people would say that the moment you find yourself in the midst of a difficult situation, pray. Even I would say that. Praying is biblical, after all.

But sometimes it’s easier said than done.

Most of you have probably heard that we recently lost our little one...

About a year ago we landed in the States with our little six month old, African born and raised, baby girl. Just a couple of days after we landed we took E to see the pediatrician for her six month check up and immunizations. While we were in the waiting room, Nicholas...

It's a word that brings about a myriad of negative emotions.

It's a label that sticks with you your entire life... even if you've sought treatment and now have children.

It's also something that brings men and women together. Have you ever been at an event an...

I've never been abused.

I've never been raped.

I've never been assaulted.

Yet, I'm ministering to women and girls who have been abused... raped... assaulted. Defiled... abandoned... destitute.

Some people... some Christians... say that in order to give advice to someone, o...
