Dear Friends & Family,
Wow! I am really excited to write you this morning. Julie
and I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Ours was the best ever. We had such a
fun time with all our kids, grandkids, and extended family on both sides.
I am pumped about the mission to Manipur India this month.I head out on December 3rd and will return on the 22nd. Please keepme in your prayers. We will hold revival meetings in three cities. The mainevent is in Tamenglong village. We will gather 29 entire congregationsfrom the whole state into a small stadium. They are very hungry forrevival and for more from Holy Spirit. It is quite a mountainous and remote area. There may be a chancewe can go in by a helicopter service and save a day of driving. That will be ablessing after 28 hours of flying to get to our last airport.
In 2001, I was at an evangelism conference in Tulsa, Oklahoma listening to some of the great evangelists of our day like: T.L. Osborn, Reinhard Bonnke, and Mike Francene. During a prayer time, the Lord showed me a brief vision about going to India and ministering in a stadium environment. At the time it seemed impossible and I thought it was probably just my imagination and basically wrote it off as such. It was not until seventeen years later, and just before the trip to India this past February that HolySpirit brought it back to memory. Even then I questioned this since those meetings were in a church setting. I had no idea that through contacts made there that these doors would open. I am not exactly sure where the Lord is headed with all this. It is both exciting and challenging at the same time. Pastor Shan and I will travel and minister there together. Please agree with us in prayer for safe traveling and for me to have favor with officials along the way. Also for health, strength, and protection against any mosquito born illnesses that can be prevalent in some of the areas we are traveling.
In other news, we will be providing funds to the Soy de Aqui Children’s Christmas vacation program in Barrio Alto Bonitobeginning December 3rd. This is our third year to do so. This Decemberprogram will be a major blessing to more than one hundred at risk kids whowould otherwise have nothing during the holiday season. In addition to our normal monthly operating expenses, please agreein faith with us for extra finances needed this month for this specialmission to India and our year-end Children’s program with Soy de Aqui inColombia.
If the Lord puts it upon your heart to help us with a special year-end gift, please let us thank you in advance. It will be a tremendous blessing to the ministry at present and a great help to start 2019 strong. May you have a happy holiday!

Dear Friends & Family, Lazarus had been dead four days. His sisters received a promise from Jesus. I believe He had told them, sometime before their brother got sick and died, that if they would “only believe” they “would see the glory of God”. Maybe He told this to Mary the day she worshipped at […]

Dear Friends & Family, Julie and I hope your summer has been a fun one? I want to thank you for praying for us and our team in Colombia. God has answered and things have improved on all fronts in less than a month’s time. Psalm 105:4 is a simple solution to many […]
Dear Friends & Family, The Apostle Paul in describing his mission work said: “We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed”. Sometimes this missions stuff gets a little intense. But when the enemy comes in like a flood, […]
Dear Friends & Family, Julie and I send you our love from Rionegro. Finally the rainy season is ending here in Colombia and “Here comes the sun da da da da”! I never imagined there could be so many shades of green. This inspires me to think of the infinite shades of God’s love and […]
