  • 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 […]

    Travels: Learning in the Chaos

    Posted on February 5, 2012 by in By Andrew

    Abby and I have been blessed to see more of Kenya in a year than the average Kenyan sees all his life. It seems like we are always on the road, and sometimes it can feel tiring and chaotic. Most recently we visited the coastal town of Mombasa with my best friend, Jonathan, and his […]

    A Great Day

    Posted on December 24, 2011 by in By Andrew

    Sunday was one of those days to write about. It was one of those days where at the end you sit down and think, “this is why I am here!” It started by waking up early to put the final touches on my sermon. Preparation was easy, as I was asked to adapt my teaching […]

    Posted on November 26, 2011 by in By Andrew

    Abby and I have spent most of November in Nairobi. It has been a nice change of pace. A missionary friend of ours is back in the states, so we are staying at their house and watching over things, especially Paco, their beloved Chihuahua. Paco is a peculiar little dog.
