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 […]

I’m not sure any of us can fathom the suffering of the Ukrainian people. The horrors of constant bombing and loss of life, to say nothing of the looming loss of hope, must be truly overwhelming. Yet they refuse to give up. Even in Mariupol, where we’re told that a thousand or more are trapped […]

As the war in Ukraine continues we’ve all been horrified at the wholesale killing of civilians. This on top of over 4 million refugees fleeing to neighbouring countries (some even to Mexico!) has confronted our world with man’s inhumanity to man. The raw underbelly of humankind has been laid bare. The Bible calls this “sin”, a […]

I think we’ve all heard of the law of unintended consequences. In the ongoing agony of Ukraine that law is beginning to emerge. “Putin’s war” as it’s being called,  has certainly not gone the way he apparently thought it would. Not only did he not conquer Ukraine in two days but after two weeks the war […]

When reading about the soap opera of 10 Downing Street in London one might despair or yield to cynicism. Draconian (yet necessary) Covid laws mandated by the UK government were flouted by the very ones who imposed them. While everyday citizens were avoiding social contact, suffering the loss of loved ones whom they had not […]

I was recently informed by our WOW champion ministry in India that the daily Covid infection rate has topped 3 million. This shocking news seems to run against the news from the rest of the world (the West at least) that the Omicron variant is on the wane. Indeed, the EU,UK, and Canada are reported […]

2022 has arrived but this new year carries a huge load from last year. We thought in 2021 that we might be seeing the end of the Covid pandemic. We were making progress, slowly but surely, and then the Omicron variant hit us with a wallop. Its growth is not just exponential, it’s explosive. In […]
