  • KENYA 2013 - Joal 06/01/13-Tohru and the Guitar Strings Made it to South Sudan

    Thanks for the guitar strings and the awesome time of worship at SLC.  I mentioned a while back that one of the students at Gideon Theological College would probably enjoy having new sets of strings. His name is Yuna and I gave him the strings you passed me.  I’ve attached a picture of him with them.  He was very appreciative.  He's a good friend of  ours. Blessings. 

  • Brian – As I reflect on my time here, I’m struck once again by the hearts of the missionaries I’ve met.  My conversations with them have been rich, and I’m humbled by their humility and strength.  The stories I’ve heard have been a mix of funny, inspiring, and at times, heart wrenching.  Some of the people I’ve spoken with live in very difficult circumstances, and even the ones who are stationed in more welcoming cultures have all kinds of challenges – from issues with finding enough financial support, to subtle (or not so subtle) obstructions that are put in their way to make their lives a...

  • As I continue to meet missionaries, I am awed by the difficult situations that they must endure.  One recent meal involved a conversation with a family dealing with many difficulties.   As the husband/father discussed the challenges to him and his family with the difficult cross-cultural situation, I was struck by how “normal” they seemed as they enjoyed their meal.   They could have been any family on vacation if I didn’t know the back story about the difficulties of their posting and family.   And yet, I saw them later that night during worship singing with their hands held high . . .

I am so moved as a worship leader as I  humbly watch my efforts help facilitate a spirit movement in the missionaries that we are serving. They are extremely hungry for corporate worship and a chance to sing their heart music.  Songs that I might take for granted at home come alive here in a new way. It is very powerful to hear their voices raised in song and their hands raised in praise. I am blessed to have any part in this.

    I have also been very moved to see God move in our team. We are a group o...

  • On Friday, August 26th 2011, my family and I set out for a Vision Casting mission trip to London, England. Specifically to serve with the World Harvest team in Southall, or Little India, in southwest London. The reason for the trip was to ascertain the realities and possibilities of our family signing on for a long-term, 5 year assignment with World Harvest in that area. We learned a lot, made many new friends and had a wonderful time in one of the most exciting cities in the world.

  • This is amazing to be here in Kenya. We have taken the luggage to our rooms and I have unpacked my suitcases. I laid down for a few minutes to rest, but who can sleep when there is a whole new world and people to meet?

  • In January 2010, the WMM sent a short-term team to Nairobi, Kenya to lead worship for the SIM/Sudan Spiritual Life Conference. The team led worship for 70 missionaries and their families, many of whom are serving long-term in Sudan.
