As I write one of our WOW partner ministries is in deep water-literally. Chennai India is in the grip of huge flooding. A major weather system has been deluging the city with record amounts of water. Streets, homes, businesses, even hospitals are in up to 3-4 feet of foul water mixed with sewage. It’s a […]

Recently one of our WOW champions underwent serious back surgery in South Africa. He and his wife oversee critical Home Based Care to about 3000 at-risk orphans and widows. Their ministry, called “Cross Connect”, is one of WOW’s key partners in sub Saharan Africa. It’s doing a terrific job. His back issues have been a constant […]

The recent release of the “Pandora Papers” has revealed the hidden world of the mega rich and their avoidance of accountability via offshore banking. I’ve had brief exposure to a few of these fiscal fugitives and have been amazed at their casual rationalizations re: offshore hiding places and the avoidance of taxes. They seem to […]

A defining scripture for my wife and me these past 21 years is from Psalms 6:5, “A father of the fatherless, and a defender of widows, is God in his holy habitation”. While founding and pastoring King of Kings Church in Jerusalem Israel in the 1980’s we were exposed to the massive orphans and widows […]

You know the old adage, “Better to light a candle than curse the darkness”. So true. But I must say that we’ve never seen such darkness in our world. There’s no need to rehearse the crises facing us in terms of pandemics, wars, and natural/environmental disasters. Yet, WOW has just lit a little candle that’s […]

Recently when recording Jim Cantelon Today TV I was asked by the director what my thoughts were re: the state of the world. He referenced the fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban, the ongoing conflicts  in Ethiopia, Yemen, Sudan, Libya etc, the wildfires in California, Greece, Turkey, Italy, and Israel, the floods in Turkey, Japan, […]

One of the major concerns in our world is that of violence against women. It’s a pandemic that has persisted long before Covid 19 afflicted the globe. And, with our WOW ministry (wowmission.com) we’ve made Gender Based Violence Mitigation a core value in our commitment to young widows and their orphaned girl children. Several years […]

I was just reading about the resurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan. The Afghan general says this conflict will greatly impact global security. Jihadists are joining the Taliban from Europe, Indonesia, North Africa, and other states in what may become a global conflict. Then there’s Iran, not only rattling its developing nuclear sabres, but facing […]
