I’m finally sitting down to write a post-trip update. My last update was the night before the last day of the retreat. On that final day I ended up getting a solid half-day of work in and was well enough rested to give me energy for not only the mo......read more
The Church, your church, is made up of a group of different and unique individuals. Each with their own gifts and abilities. Each with their own part to play in the makeup of the body of Christ. But let's not forget that the body of Christ is not j......read more
At about 8:16 this morning we took a left turn off the pavement onto what could only be described as an off the beaten path gravel and mud backwoods country road. We had gone about 9 miles West of the seaside town of Punta Gorda to reach this turn a......read more
Monday and Tuesday we spent recording a song that was written with the team members of World Music Mission and East Africa Gospel. It was a great pleasure to see the song turn out so well.

Taught a basic audio class to a fine group of young people this afternoon at the New Life Masih Ghar Church. Explaining simple signal flow from microphone to speakers.

Very blessed to worship today with this culturally diverse congregation. After the service we were treated to their usual after service meal of traditional Indian cuisine. Very lovely and friendly people who are not shy about striking up a conversation w...
