Covered in Dust

I am sitting under the stars in Uganda.
The house we are living in has no power, so they are the clearest I have ever seen them.
It’s nighttime and most of my team is already asleep.
Trying to unwind, I decide to wash my feet.
As I take the wash bucket, I begin to clean off layer after layer of street dirt.
Dirt as red as Georgia clay.
It is a peaceful night and I am at rest after a very hard day of ministry.
No sleep.  Fear.  Power.  Healings.  Demons.  Muslims.  Opposition.  Freedom.  Salvations.

Iasou Mulungi!

God is Good!!  I came to know this phrase in a whole new way this week.
It was the end of a very long week for us.  I had been leading a team of 12 in the bush and our ministry lasted about 13 hours a day.  It was our last night before a day off and we were all exhausted.  “Just a few more hours” I thought to myself.  We turned the Jesus Film on and expected to have a few hours of rest until prayer time at the end.  …

They met for the first time in the Atlanta, Georgia airport back in May 2009. Matt Patch, Austin Anglea and Dan Snyder: instant brothers with much in common. After training camp the three of them had dreams and visions of the Lord …

Sins of Their Fathers

“For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me…” ~ Deuteronomy 5:9
Does God punish children for the sins for their fathers?
Does this Deuteronomy passage speak only to the Israelites of the Old Testament?  Or is there some string of truth for the world today?
While we were going evangelizing a few days ago, a 10-year-old girl named Flo approached me.  She asked me to pray for her baby brother.  …

Bibles For Bungoma

This post is another story I want to share with you in my effort to live the Simple Life in Kenya.
In the town of Bungoma, Kenya, there are many churches.
In those churches there are many pews.
In those pews there are many Christians.
In those Christians there are very passionate hearts.
But in those hands, there are no Bibles.

The church in Bungoma is alive and well, but unfortunately, they lack resources to get Bibles into the very eager hands.  When we were doing house-to-house evangelism, I asked the pastor if there was any …
