Mary & I have lived by faith, through the generous free-will gifts of friends, family, and churches since 1985. Amazing grace. Amazing God. Amazing calling. That call is not ours alone. We know our supporters have troubles just like we do.

Because people like you have been called by God to send us into a lifetime of missionary service, we have been supported to train and send a new generation of over 350 student missionaries to work in over 40 countries. Just today I completed a week of teaching through web conference a small group of emerging leaders in Venezuela on the Calling of God. The faithfulness of our supporters shows the true colors of a deep commitment and an eagerness to be in on this kingdom work.

“Now, friends, I want to report on the surprising and generous ways in which God is working in the churches in Macedonia province. Fierce troubles came down on the people of those churches, pushing them to the very limit. The trial exposed their true colors: They were incredibly happy, though desperately poor. The pressure triggered something totally unexpected: an outpouring of pure and generous gifts. I was there and saw it for myself. They gave offerings of whatever they could—far more than they could afford!—pleading for the privilege of helping out in the relief of poor Christians.”

2 Corinthians 8:1-4 MSG
