School Sponsors Needed

School Sponsors Needed

Each year in the city of Kenema, Sierra Leone, hundreds of children cannot attend school because of the cost. One year of secondary school costs around $85 (about the cost of a pair of back to school shoes for many in the United States). Because our Sierra Leone street ministry...

Detroit Street Ministry

Detroit Street Ministry

One of the areas we are thinking about doing ministry is Highland Park. It is right in the center of Detroit and is in desperate need of street level activity for Jesus. Please pray with us as we discern if this is the place God wants us to begin working....

Disappointed Expectations

Last week I was pulling up to one of our ministry houses in the streets when I saw Curtis. He’s a staple there in the streets and he eagerly waved to me and excitedly motioned for me to roll down the window to my car. I got out and casually asked him what was going...

One of Prayer’s Purposes

  Did you know that one of the purposes of prayer is to get results? In John 15:7-8 Jesus is teaching His disciples and He tells them, “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much...

Responsible Shepherding

    My wife and I were talking about people coming to the Lord the other day. Actually we were talking about people “staying” with the Lord and how we’ve seen people quickly come to Christ and then, almost as quickly, fall away. Actually we were talking about the responsibility of the believer in this...

Producing Fruit

One of the things that is clear from scripture is that The Lord looks for fruitfulness. In John 15:5 Jesus tells his disciples, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain...

The conference was wonderful. The worship in the evening was holy. It was evident to all in attendance that the presence of...
