Summer is emerging in the northern hemisphere while winter encroaches in the southern hemisphere. We are presently on a farm in South Africa. As I look out each morning, I am reminded of Scriptures that declare: “The heavens declare the glory of God” and “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead.” Being in this beautiful setting of a dairy farm has reminded us of the creator-God who is also the Great Planner. I have been reading an amazing book, “Humble Roots,” written by our friend, Hannah Anderson. She reflects on humility and God’s grace in our lives as we serve him. Hannah has a unique way of looking at God’s creation and Scripture....Keep Reading

When we last wrote, we asked you to pray for the Grad Fellows Summer Mission that we were hoping to launch this past summer. Thank you so much for praying for our recruiting efforts for the mission. The Lord, however, had other plans. We were not able to recruit the number of students we needed for the mission to have the desired experience and impact for students. We were certainly disappointed. However, we have seen the Lord’s goodness and great providential care for us and the ministry through it all. Let me tell you of a couple of ways we saw the Lord work....Keep Reading
