Dear Friend,

I want to personally invite you to get to know International Needs better.  My hope in this blog is to inspire you as you seek to be God’s fellow worker (1 Cor 3:9).  We have such a privilege to be a part of His work of transformation.  I am particularly honored to be able to interact with and see first hand the things that God is doing in the lives of people all around the world. These things I want to share with you through my eyes.

Our work in 2017 will take me to Colombia, Ghana, Uganda, Burkina Faso, Nepal, Romania, Slovakia, Kenya, Bangladesh, Egypt, and Turkey.  This blog will tell the story of many of the people who lead our work around the world.  This year will be particularly exciting as we focus our attention on reaching those who have not had a Christian witness since the angel’s proclamation to the shepherds at Jesus’ birth.

To read the most recent blogs, click on a link to the left. Please be sure leave a comment to the blogs that have impacted you and I will respond.  If there is every an opportunity, I would love to share these stories with you and your church, school, or civic club so do not hesitate to invite me.  It would be an honor.  And, as you might imagine, I covet your prayers as we bring “good news of great joy to all the people” (Luke 2:10).

With you serving Him,
