Are you seeing the ‘hand of God’ at work?


When I was growing up, I attended Sunday school and participated in Sunday-night Bible studies where each week, as a young teenager, I had to teach one part of the lesson. I went to church camp, Bible drills and of course, revivals. Those were all good things, but what captured my heart was seeing and […]

Purposeful playing with my grandsons


Since the birth of Titus the Honorable, I have become more childlike. Yes, I am the old man stepping carefully through our backyard, wearing a bandanna and carrying a water gun. My 3 ½-year-old grandson and I are on the lookout for predators. Of course, he is much more adept at seeing the tigers, snakes […]

Dead fish story for some fishers of men


I spent part of the summer living in the Darien Jungle of Panama in a small Embera village called Ipeti. Three young men and I slept outside in hammocks while the women and other men slept inside a hut. We walked from village to village presenting the Gospel. The dust of the road and the […]

Was Paul’s ‘thorn in the flesh’ flat feet?


When I get to Heaven. I am going to look up the Apostle Paul. I have been intrigued by what he refers to as a “thorn in the flesh” in 2 Corinthians 12:7. Throughout the ages, there have been many thoughts about what this thorn in the flesh could have been. Paul goes on to […]

New missionaries need some adjustment


This week, I am in Dallas training 80 student missionaries who will soon leave for Peru, The Gambia and Panama. A number of these are alumni are returning for their eighth mission tour and then there those who are first-time missionaries. I can instantly tell which ones are on their first mission trip and which […]

A wedding at the end of a trip to Utopia


Earlier this month, I had a special wedding to attend. I guess all weddings are special, but not to me. This one was, though. Two of our Awe Star missionaries, Amy Web and Justin Armbrister, were getting married. Not only have the bride and groom served with us, but the father of the bride has […]

Country church was the best place on Earth


As I wrote last week, I grew up in small country churches. We didn’t have staff members, a digital billboard or even a paid janitor. We did have janitors, though. Each week, a different family was assigned that duty. When it was your family’s turn, your parents would bring you and your siblings to the […]

You know you are in a country church when…


I grew up attending small country churches. In fact, when I was growing up, there was no such thing as a megachurch. We didn’t have a clue about bands, light shows or PowerPoint. If you had asked me what a megachurch was, I might have pointed you toward a church in town that has 300 […]

Snakes and helping those who are lost


For a couple of months, Titus the Honorable and I have been planning a big adventure. Of course, planning with a 3-year-old only takes about a minute. This last Saturday was our big day: Just Titus and me, heading off on a journey into the dark forest to look for snakes. Now, the dark forest […]

A lost soul and a rediscovered ring


I am not into jewelry at all. I like buying it for my wife, but when it comes to myself, I have only two rings and a couple of watches. But the other day, I was asked to speak at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma. It was an incredible opportunity as I haven’t been on that base […]
