Last blog from Africa

Greetings in the name of the Lord, We have returned from our jungle expedition and it was simply stunning to experience.  Some of it was so primitive I thought I was part of the cast in a Tarzan movie.  Below are some more of my observations. Observations from Africa: There is no speed limit or speed signs in Liberia. They still have leper…

Graduation Day in Liberia

Day 9, Blog 6 Today was our graduation ceremony and all who attended received wonderful certificates of graduation.  Yes we are all relieved that it’s over, we are totally exhausted, but extremely grateful for all that God is doing.  For the first-ever, best-ever Liberty Pastor’s Conference, it was all the work of GOD!  The official count was 207 pastors, leaders, elders, deacons…

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

Day 5, Blog 4 Woke up again to no running water, so took my usual cold water bucket and dumped over my head and then splashed where I could. We are laughing much in the joy of our Lord.

Please pray for a fellow pastor here – his name is Ben Mumford and he is one of the main coordinators of this conference. Last night he…

Long flights, short beds

Day 2 Blog 1 Fifteen hours sitting, cramped, and our sovereign God chose to give to me the middle seat, between two kindly dudes on an airplane, and we finally arrive at our desired destination via Ghana.  No one knew we were stopping in Ghana en route to our final stop in Liberia and no one knew we would sit on the…

Prayers for the Liberia Mission Trip

Our team will be traveling to Liberia for two weeks, from March 13-27, 2014. Our plan is to provide some much needed Biblical teaching and training to some 200 plus African pastors. The name of the conference is “The Liberty Pastors Conference.” I will be teaching two classes every day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The course I…

Books for Africa

A HUGE THANK YOU needs to go out to the Gospel Coalition International Outreach Team! Pastor Gary and Alfie were able to pick up 160 copies of The Supremacy of God in Preaching by John Piper for Gary to take to Africa for the pastors that are attending the Pastors’ Conference this March! The Gospel Coalition provided the books for free and…
