Children of Faith

"After my skin is destroyed, this I know, That in my flesh I shall see God" Job 19:26 Since June 27, I have been reading the book of Job, which for many brings thoughts, questions, and struggles as we try and correlate what we read in the book of Job and how we can apply... Continue Reading →

Which Way?

As I continue to read Desire of Ages, I am more deeply moved each time I see the demonstration of Jesus' love for sinful man. In the midst of persecution and betrayal Jesus continued to shed light and opportunity to those around him including Judas, Pilate, and King Herod. Below are a couple paragraphs that shake me...

The Alter Call

It's 4:15 in the morning and I've been on duty since 3:30 am, as each of the teachers and parents take turns on night duty during our annual Managaha camping trip.  Night duty has made the trip tiring, but this morning I'm on duty myself which has given me the opportunity to think, pray, and...

Six months ago, if you asked me to guess or predict the future, I would have not guessed that I would be scuba diving on November 1, organizing a dive training for Tiffany and 3 other people (so we can go diving with my sister when she comes in December), and that I would be... Continue Reading →

Let us not forget

I remember them so vividly. Southern's Friday night vespers. It seems like just yesterday although it was more like 5 years ago. Once a year the stage would be decorated with brightly colored flags for Student Missions Vespers. Students who had been abroad shared powerful and moving stories about their experiences. I would sit in... Continue Reading →

Do You Like Challenges???

My wife and I have now been in Saipan for 25 days, and before we know it we will have been here for 25 weeks.  As my wife mentioned in her blog yesterday, the days are truly flying by. Reflecting over the last 25 days, our first Joint Worship at Saipan SDA School stands out... Continue Reading →

Something to be thankful for.

This morning we journeyed from “home” in Bennet, Nebraska to the airport in Omaha. It was about an hour and a little to get there. Despite my neck-ache and lack of sleep, I piped up against my own feelings and said thankfully, “Well, at-least I’m not sick this time.” Last time I flew a distance... Continue Reading →

Martha, Martha…

"Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her."  Luke 10:41,42 This morning I was doing my devotional and I came across this passage in the Bible, and then I found this quote in the book...

He’s My Cousin, Follow Me…

Remember our blog post titled: "Homeless or Deadly?", it was written by Tiffany who sometimes worries more than she should.  None the less, today I had an intersting experience, that made me wonder if I was going to make it out of the situation in one piece. I was looking for business with a nice store... Continue Reading →

Are you fireproof?

This past Sabbath fell on "Valentines Day".   I imagine many pastors/speakers chose to preach on love, relationships, and other related topics. Pastor Derek Morris, the Senior Pastor of Forest Lake SDA (the church we attend) titled his sermon "Fire Damage".  It is the beginning of a 3 part series on relationships that can be found...

An example in so many ways

Road trip to Tennessee again. Except this time not so fun! The bad news came, at first unexpected. It took about 30 minutes of thinking to finally get myself to imagine the impossible. Most of you know that my very beloved friend Valerie, age 25 passed away recently from Melenoma cancer. I still can't believe... Continue Reading →
