2016 Year in review and 2017 Plans

Posted by:

2016 saw many changes to Joel’s ministry with Communications. It started out projecting to be a busy year, with more travel than previous years, as he was a part of a collaborative team of leaders’ working in several disciplines beyond Communications. But that role shifted quickly as big change came to the structure of the whole communications, development and mobilization teams. He then found himself in a much more stationary, but very much needed role of Business Administrator for the ...

A Multitude of Hands

Posted by:

We were recently reading a book, which was explaining how to construct a simple plastic auditorium chair.  It takes hundreds of people with combined knowledge and allied skills.  No one person can do it all.

It brought to mind missions – cross cultural discipleship – it requires a team, and the purpose of missions is far grander than that of a chair.  The ultimate purpose of missions is to bring joy to all nations, tongues and tribes so the adoration and ...

Trusting God with my health

Posted by:

hospital-gown-derm-apptBack in December, my faith was tested. I noticed a lump in my breast and of course freaked out. We live in the middle of nowhere and I will have to wait 8 months to get it checked out. Then about a month later I noticed 1, then 2 spots that looked like more basal skin cancer spots. Again, 7 months to wait. And to add to all of that, I started to have some really bad pelvis pain. Daily, I ...

That girl I mentioned in my *previous post –the one I dated at age 16, who confronted me about life-long relationships and missions?  Here’s the rest of the story.

She had this mission’s thing in her head since she was about eight years of age.  Matter of fact, back then she wanted to be a missionary nurse.  But she heard about the gory stuff with blood & needles and open wounds so she dropped the nurse part and kept the missionary idea.

Fast forward ...

Fresh grave of Lusi believer

Fresh grave of Lusi believer

At the edge of the village around the edges of the newly dug pit, some people clung to each other, others stood and looked on. The coffin of roughly split boards was lowered into the grave to the sound of wailing. At this funeral there were two kinds of wailing. One was the hopeless all consuming wail of loss from those who had no hope of every seeing their loved one again. The other wailing was ...

Hold the Ropes

Posted by:

guy-hanging-off-a-cliff-on-a-ropeOne of the many roles I’ve been filling at New Tribes Bible Institute is to help with a program we call “Hold the Ropes.” As part of my duties I read hundreds of missionary prayer letters and select the ones students will read and pray over during an all-day missions emphasis. Students are broken up into groups and read the letter from “their” missionary and then pray with their friends about that missionary’s needs. This past week I also delivered a ...
