  • For me our first night in Uganda was surely a test of faith.  It's hard being the rookie on this World Music Mission team.  Kurt and I were met at the airport with open arms by the East African Gospel team. They drove us to the hotel in the middle of the city where a young man guarded the gate with a stick in his hand as his defense.  It was pitch black dark and I had a lizard in my bed in the room. There was no WiFi, no cellular service and the power even went out.  This is not like home. What a start to my journey!  But I must say that since that night, God has done some amazing things after...

  • This week has been yet another great experience. I've really learned a good bit about trust and understanding I don’t make things happen but God does. That’s my main takeaway.

    To expand on that to the fullest extent would be hard to contain in a single post, but there’s one story of God’s work that I will share. I had heard from a couple of people that one of the office workers from Nairobi was an excellent singer and should sing a song in the worship time. Now I’ve never heard this person sing, so I was at least leery of the prospect, but she came up and asked and I worked out a spo...

  • It’s hard to believe we are heading home tomorrow. Honestly, I’m so ready to see my wife and the boys, but I’m staying in the moment and trying to take in whatever God has in store for us for the remainder of the trip.

God is at work around the world, and I’ve only had a glimpse of it. So thankful for my incredible team members and especially the generous donors who made this trip a reality. Allan

  • One of the World Music Mission’s best friends in East Africa since day 1 has been Taylor Martyn. He’s a gifted film maker and photographer who serves with his wife and children on the mission field. He helps tell the mission stories and he has helped tell the WMM story with SIMSudan. Here are a few shots from Taylor…

  • This may the last message I send, as we leave for Nairobi tomorrow to catch a flight home.  First let me thank you for your prayers and support, as I would not be here if it wasn’t for you, the donors and supporters.  I was able to give the WMM Cajon (that I have played hard!!)  to a South Sudanese church.

    After worshiping I gave an impromptu demo to Dah, their music leader.  He said that their drums they use were in terrible shape.  I wish that I had drums to give him, but he assured me that they could use this instrument (though not indigenous to Sudan) to worship in a traditional Suda...
