The mind boggles at the environmental disasters that are dominating the news, the worst of all, at present, the flooding in Pakistan. It’s hard to comprehend the desperation of hundreds of thousands of mainly rural farmers, workers, and young families living on ribbons of roads, surrounded by brown water that continues to rise, without food, […]

A news headline caught my attention recently: “We are waiting for rain, for winter, and for God-Fighting a megafire in France”. It’s always the case that when we’re desperate we find ourselves, whether true believer, casual believer, or non-religious, intuitively reaching up for help.

I was reading Jesus’ response to his disciples’ question, “What will be the sign of your coming and the end of the age?” in Matthew 24. Jesus said,”You will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not alarmed; for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation […]

Everything from wiring harnesses for the auto industry to fuel costs to grain supplies has been disrupted. Africa […]

I’ve just returned from Dallas Texas and Albuquerque New Mexico. In Dallas my wife and I attended the ordination of our daughter to the ministry, and in Albuquerque I guested on a TV show that is released on 15 stations in New Mexico. The ordination ceremony was inspiring and the TV interview gave me opportunity […]

My wife Kathy and I had just driven into the state of Texas yesterday when we read the news. 21 people dead and 12 injured in a primary school mass shooting in Uvalde. Our grandaughter’s high school graduation is today and our daughter’s ordination to the ministry is on Saturday. Our hearts are broken and […]

There’s that well worn adage,“Better to light a candle than curse the darkness”. So true. WOW is doing just that even though we’re a small candle in Ukraine. Our vision is to care for at risk orphans and widows in Jesus’ name. For 22 years we’ve been doing so in Sub-Saharan Africa and India. Through […]
