Happy New Year, Like many of you, we have looked back to evaluate our efforts in 2018, and we wonder what the Lord has for us in 2019 and beyond. Will the Lord give us another 4 years of full-time missionary service (until I turn 70)? Or will it be 8 years or even 18 […]

Martha and I are presently assigned as itinerant missionaries to West Africa. The mission there is registered with its French name “Vision Intégrale” (meaning a comprehensive or all-encompassing vision). Martha and I participate in two overlapping ministries for the West African region. Both of these ministries can be done from our office-at-home in Alabama. We are helping the Africa e1 team (e1 stands for the 1st phase of missionary training, called: equipping). In Africa, this means helping believers from the local churches who want to be trained and equipped so that they can participate in cross-cultural and heart-language outreach to other ethnic groups that do not yet have a thriving, maturing church. Our ministry also involves translating other resource material into French for these missionary candidates in Africa.
