The pews of the little church were full of worshippers that Sunday morning in Eldorado Arkansas 59 years ago.

I was spellbound […]

Bible teacher, Peter Lord, has challenged me through my spiritual journey.  Recently,  he was driving past a billboard advertising a Florida lottery for a $60 million  jackpot.  He sincerely prayed to God, “Lord, give the numbers, and I’ll give every penny to missions.” He admitted that he really believed God would give him the numbers.” […]

A few years ago, we sat at this table and made the decision to believe God to help us build a $200,000 dorm at the Arusha Bible College. Words are inadequate to express the emotions we feel as we think of you that are making this journey with us. Every dollar, every prayer and word […]
