Changes

Did you notice the title change? This is by design. My address remains the same for this blog. But my place for publishing will be changed. Our ministry is in transition. We are closing a volume of this journey, opening a new one.

As of April 18th, I will be a pastor in the United States. I will be in the Southern block of those great states, in south Mississippi.

The change is bittersweet. It has been delightful to serve our Lord Jesus in South America. We have done so since 1988, except for a brief return for medical needs at the beginning of the 21st century. So we have plenty of great memories and great hopes that we will see many hundreds of Peruvians and others in heaven one day. Only the Lord knows how many of the thousands that said they believed on the Lord under our ministry truly did. But we have great hopes.

Now it seemed good to the Lord to send us north of the equator once again. And we are excited. It's an exciting time in the world. It's a great time to be an active Christian. I can't wait to be back in the pulpit, equipping believers, challenging the congregation, seeking to evangelize the lost.

So, rejoice with me. But pray with me, too. The change is just now beginning to dawn on us. I look forward to it, but also walk in fear and trepidation.

wow! We just drove through Mississippi today and thought of you guys! (Coming home from Catherine's wedding) I pray blessings over you as you move. What an amazing ministry you are leaving in Peru. But your new church will be SO blessed to have you guys!

Hi, guys,

I appreciate the kind words. It was not an easy decision. Well, it was in one way. It was clear that this was the Lord's plan for our lives. So in that way it was easy. But it's very hard leaving a place that has been home for more than 20 years.

Blessings,
