CRU Update - February 2015

We've always encouraged Christian professors to identify themselves as Christians on the first day of class. It's often a great act of faith for a professor to do this. Because I've feared directly talking about Jesus in class, it's in office hours that I am much more direct; I will talk about Jesus or things I'm learning in Scripture, and this is where most of my spiritual conversations with students happen....Keep Reading

We trust that you have had a blessed time celebrating the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ! The Hilton Baptist Church gathered together on Thursday night for a half night of prayer. We meditated, prayed, praised the Lord as we followed the sequence of events from the Last Supper to the arrest of Jesus. On Friday morning the community of faith gathered again to celebrate the death of Christ on our behalf. Our Easter celebration concluded with a Sunday morning service focusing on the resurrection. Following the service, three ladies were baptized. It was awesome!...Keep Reading

After my recent visit to Melbourne there is little doubt that the church in Australia is struggling, but as the church in Craigieburn, Victoria demonstrates, there is hope moving forward to the future....Keep Reading

Hesman Herald Fall 2014

Life Is Buzzing: We have begun a new term at the Bible College. The buzz of student life is back...the momentary quiet of the Spring holiday is gone. Students studying, asking questions, laughing and sometimes crying, praying, preparing sermons, singing songs, playing soccer, discussing life and theological concepts,...this is life during the school term. Sometimes living becomes very messy as campus life overflows into family life but it is never dull. I remember vividly reading a book about bringing up adolescents...the author reminded me to look at every "disruption", every "crisis" as an opportunity to build into lives and to grow as the person God wants us to become. I have found that advice to be true in all of life...God always has a purpose. Pray that we can remember this even when things are "messy"....Keep Reading

Monday we stood in the Raleigh-Durham airport and said good-bye to our dear friends, Ryan and Joy Owen (www.owenambition.org). By now the Owens have already arrived in their new country, Ghana, and are trying to get acquainted to their new life in Western Africa. Ryan and Joy went to college with my wife and I and we worked together for several years at Marshall Baptist Church. We joined Baptist Mid Missions together and Ryan and I were ordained together. ...Keep Reading

We are going to be traveling quite a bit over the next few months as we speak in Georgia, Florida, and Ohio. I will also be taking a trip to Australia in October to spend time with the church that will sponsor us in our visa/ immigration process. Please pray that we will see an increase in financial support through these opportunities....Keep Reading

Dear Wake Chapel Family, We are in South Africa! We are excited to be back. The trip was uneventful, just tiring. As always, goodbyes were hard. Thank you for your prayers on our behalf. Thank you also to the Choi family and the church family at Faith Baptist (Pastor David and Bill) in helping us make our way to Dulles Airport. What a blessing! ...Keep Reading
