Seminar in Guatemala

Ministry and mission work is a team effort -- Jan and I have shared the task of ministry and mission work for over 50 years! (We traveled together to preaching appointments during the year before we were married.) Countless people have encouraged us, supported us, loved us, and prayed for us. In addition to the customary "Brother Bob" or "Hermano Bob," I am also known as dad and papaw. One of my favorite breakfasts is huevos fritos, frijoles, and tortillas, with a good hot sauce and a cup of rich Colombian coffee! My greatest joy in life is being part of the kingdom; my #1 priority is to advance "kingdom things" and to help develop authentic "kingdom people." I seek to share the good news about Jesus everywhere I go, helping people find Jesus and helping people mature as disciples of Jesus. One of the greatest blessings of my life is to be loved by countless people around the world!

Stars to Steer By: Perfect Day

Friday, April 18th, 2014

“You have not lived a perfect day unless you have done something for someone who will never be able to repay you.” –Ruth Smeltzer

Blessed to be a blessing….

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

In the last several months, Jan and I have enjoyed several opportunities to reflect on life and ministry. We have been invited to return to five congregations in which we ministered full-time. The opportunity to teach and preach in these churches has been a special blessing. These congregations represent 27 years of the time we spent in full-time local ministry. We have reminisced and rejoiced as we shared time with brothers and sisters who are dear to us. We have been blessed by their continued generosity and interest in the ministry and mission we are now pursuing.
In addition, we have reconnected with several special friends from our past, spending time with Ken and Joy Dillman (15th Street, Tulsa) and Bill and Betty Sims (Plymouth, Michigan). Last Sunday we were in Bella Vista, Arkansas for a Mission Emphasis Sunday. While there, we were blessed to spend some time with Lowell and Judith Carmical whom we also knew in Plymouth, Michigan.
We are continually amazed at friendships in Christ that do not end even though time and miles separate us. Heaven will indeed be a wonderful place of glory and grace!

It is easy for us to lose perspective. Sometimes, Jan and I look longingly at those who have lived in the same place for many years and have life-long friends with whom they regularly spend time. We try to imagine what it would be like to have such roots and stability, with friendships that have been continuously nurtured and enjoyed. We are tempted to jealousy, but we are brought back to reality when those very people remind us that we have friends around the world.
Friends around the world! Friends in Christ in most of the states of our nation; brothers and sisters in Christ among the nations of our world. We are bound together by love in Christ, hope for the future, and prayer for one another.

“Dear God, help me never forget that I am blessed to be a blessing. Thank you for the wonderful way you have blessed our lives with friends and spiritual family in Jesus.”
