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. Much dancing, singing, and speech making creating a minor dust storm! The main speech was […]

I’m no alarmist but the news lately re: the drying up of major rivers, is more than a touch concerning. The Rhine, Colorado, and Mississippi rivers have been at risk for a year or so, but recent news re: the historic Jordan and Tigris-Euphrates is troubling. These two rivers play a huge role in Iraq, […]

There have been reports lately on the trend to “de-socialize” in terms of opting out of social media. The pressure to produce posts, tweets, and pics is getting too much for many, to say nothing of the compulsion to conform to social expectations. 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, […]

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 came across a car accident one time and the injured […]

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 […]

I’ve been rereading “The Secret History of the IRA”. I first read it several years ago when I interviewed the author, Ed Maloney, former Northern Editor of the Irish Times and The Sunday Tribune. It’s a stunning work of investigative journalism. Much of the focus is on Gerry Adams a young man who rose from […]

I think most of us have been blindsided by the importance of Ukraine. As Putin’s war continues to commit atrocities the entire world is feeling the consequences of the incremental unravelling of Ukraine’s place in the world. Everything from wiring harnesses for the auto industry to fuel costs to grain supplies has been disrupted. Africa […]
