What hath God wrought? These are posts describing what God has done and is doing in our family in the way of ministry to others.

God Thunders Through in Big Sandy!

“My fourteen-year-old brother was in tears,” a friend of mine told me this evening, “as God got a hold of his heart during the day of delighting in the Lord at the conference.” I was chatting with an ATI Mom on the phone this afternoon. “I’ve been to a lot of conferences,” she said, “but […]

One Decision at a Time

I praise the Lord for His tremendous blessing on the teaching of character in the public schools. What a joy it is to be here and channel God’s love to the children He brings across my path. Usually it is in the classroom but there are also opportunities over lunch, in the library or during […]

“Now We’re in One Accord!”

The Spirit of the Lord is here! Powerful testimonies were flowing freely for almost three hours this evening as the Dad’s Conference began to draw to a close. Right now it is 11:30 at night and the lobby of the Indianapolis Training Center is buzzing with the fellowship of fathers openly sharing their hearts with […]

Bringing Health to the Hurting

I enjoyed spending this past week at the Indianapolis Training Center, helping Mr. Gothard and Dr. Paine as they hosted a Total Health Seminar. Even though the dates of the seminar were only finalized a few weeks in advance, a remarkable number of attendees showed up to learn how to identify the root causes of […]

A Trip to Paradise

I recently returned from a 5-day trip to Guadalajara, Mexico! It was my first time in Mexico and the 70° weather was a nice change from Chicago’s chilly winter winds. As I understand it, temperatures are idealistic all year long in the beautiful Lake Chapala area where we stayed. IBLP’s beautiful Guadalajara Training Center property […]

Revival in Indianapolis!

Yesterday was the conclusion of the five-day Dad’s Conference here at the Indianapolis Training Center. Over five hundred fathers were here, including my Dad, who drove up with Mr. Wilkes. The spirit of revival that took place was incredible! The time that I got to spend with Dad while he was here was very meaningful! And […]

Good News from a Far Country

It has been a little over a month now since I returned from a three-week expedition to the Philippines. Looking over the pictures, however, brings each experience and opportunity freshly back to mind! Several times I was surrounded by groups of eager children, curiously watching and patiently listening as I explained the message of the […]

Babysitting Odyssey

The opportunity arose for my cousin Karen and her husband John to tour Israel and I was honored to be asked to baby-sit their four boys at their home in NC. Realizing that I needed help, I asked my friend Emma Isitt from Oregon to come with me because of her zeal for working with […]

A New Adventure

Today I flew up to Chicago, where I’ll be serving with IBLP this year. Though it is tough to be leaving my family and putting my business on hold for a while, I know the Lord is leading in this direction and I’m excited about the opportunities to serve Him through this ministry! The theme […]

Mission Accomplished

After three full days of traveling (two of which were the same day of the week, thanks to the International date line), I finally arrived home from the Philippines on the 12th. This trip went far beyond my expectations. Seeing how the Lord was able to use each member of the team to spread His […]
