This week marked a remarkable feat in the career of Tiger Woods. A 5 year stint of not winning was replaced by a win at the The Tour Championship held at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, GA (his 80th career win). What was just as remarkable is that he was one stroke away from... Continue Reading →
I recently returned from a trip to Africa to share the Gospel with my "new friends" who are a part of the unreached people of the world. In fact, 100% of the people of this community are Muslim, which makes it somewhat difficult in the sharing process. However, after 4 years of continual visits to... Continue Reading →

I believe they may have... Continue Reading →

It wasn’t long before each of the hens starting producing eggs for our family to eat. My daughter,... Continue Reading →
