  • Bible College: Seven Letters to all the Churches

    Posted on January 6, 2017 by in By Andrew

    I am officially a college professor.  Over the last couple years, we reorganized our Bible Institute to empower our satellite branches, simplify our structure, and make it cheaper to run. It was a step in shifting toward a model that will be sustainable long term. It also opened the door to almost double the number […]

    4 Families

    Posted on July 26, 2016 by in By Andrew

    This morning I had the privilege of preaching at the first Sunday service of a new church plant. A team of pastors have been hard at work going door to door, sharing the Gospel for the last couple days and informing people of the churches opening. The area is an old cattle farm that is […]

    A common question we get while on the road here in the States is, “How does it feel to be home? I bet your loving it.” It is an interesting question, because the person asking it almost always includes the answer, but it also makes a very big assumption—that America is still home. It is […]

    Posted on November 12, 2015 by in Uncategorized

    It has been a long time since I wrote a blog. Not because I have not had anything to say, but because nothing I wanted to say felt completely honest. There have been so many great things going on here in Kenya, but it has been hard trying to write anything while knowing that I […]

    A Spiritual World

    Posted on April 2, 2015 by in Uncategorized

    10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

    We Went on an Adventure

    Posted on December 27, 2014 by in Uncategorized

    (This is a post I wrote back in April. I just never got around to organizing all the pictures and putting it up.) Three nights in the past week I have fallen asleep exhausted on the couch before 8 o’clock. I have been extremely busy trying to work on some leadership adjustments at the school […]
