Most sports fans are aware of the dramatic event which occurred during the Buffalo Bills vs Cincinnati Bengals NFL game a few weeks ago. Defensive half Demar Hamlin collapsed with cardiac arrest after a routine tackle. Millions of us watched with great concern as the medical professionals administered CPR while members of both teams openly […]

It’s a new year, time for resolutions, no? We all have them. Mainly because we can all see room for improvement. Unfortunately, many of them are unsustainable without major revisions of our core values, habits, and inherent resistance to change. Nevertheless, we’ve got a blank slate in 2023 and we’re keen to make a fresh […]

I was looking at an old photo album my mother put together 50 years ago. In it was a black and white “Brownie” camera picture of my 4 year old brother and me at 5 wearing “Rudolph the reindeer” pyjamas beside a small artificial Christmas tree in our home in Kelvington, Saskatchewan.

We had a VERY unusual experience last September in a village called Kapanula,Malawi. Over 600 orphans and widows, Home Based Care volunteers, chiefs, and pastors met us there for an all day event celebrating our 22 year ministry with them.

Social correctness has become the high maintenance twin of political correctness. One […]

I’ve just received a report from our pastor/partner in Ukraine. He tells of the remarkable response of scores of churches to the flood of refugees from the war. They’ve been transformed into refugee centres where the fleeing women and children can find safety and care. This was/is something WOW committed to supporting even as we […]

My wife Kathy and I have just returned from Africa where we met with our champion ministries in South Africa, Zambia, and Malawi. It was good to connect after the 3 year Covid hiatus. We discovered, to our great surprise, that the pandemic has all but been forgotten in that vast continent. Yes, the vestiges […]

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, […]
