Colombian Preachers

Ministry and mission work is a team effort -- Jan and I have shared the work of ministry and missions for 49+ years! Countless people have encouraged us, supported us, loved us, and prayed for us. In addition to the customary "Brother 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 serve and 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!

Blessed to be a Blessing

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016

The midpoint of 2016–reviewing the past, anticipating the future. The halfway point of the year is a good time to look back; it is natural to look forward. Every effort made in the name of God demands evaluation, so that mistakes are not repeated and so that successes provide the foundation for the future. Prayerful planning is essential to the coordination and maximum use of time and opportunities.

LOOKING BACK. God has been good to me! I am amazed at what God continues to do among his people through his humble servants in many places around the world. I am blessed because God uses me in his kingdom. I give thanks for countless friends in Christ, especially for those who help make this work possible with finances and prayers.
2016 in review includes mission meetings in several states and time spent among God’s people in U.S. churches (English-speaking): Broken Arrow (OK), Fort Gibson (OK), Rolla (MO), Northwest, Houston (TX), and Park Plaza, Tulsa (OK). Jan and I were blessed to spend a few weekends with the church in Rolla, MO in an interim role. I am always honored and blessed to teach in my home congregation at Park Plaza. Immediately after I finished my spring term adult Bible class (“Letters from an Old Man”) I presented the introductory lesson for the summer series.
The work in Honduras took me to Talanga, Tegucigalpa, Baxter Institute, and San Pedro Sula.
The work in the U.S. found me at Iglesia de Cristo-Park Plaza in Tulsa with my Pedro Sanchez, my “socio” from Chile, and at Iglesia de Cristo-Crieve Hall in Nashville with brother Jacobo Chalco.
In Peru, I spent time at the Interamericano Bible Institute and two local churches in Lima, spoke at the national conference of ministers and church leaders, and then traveled to Trujillo, Viru, and Huamachuco to work with the local churches.

LOOKING FORWARD. The work accelerates in the next six months. Mission trips and destinations that will finish out 2016 include the following–
July, Kentucky (Iglesia de Cristo)
July-August, Michigan (English-speaking churches)
August, Tennessee (Iglesia de Cristo and national conference of Hispanic preachers)
August, Ecuador
August, Colombia
September, El Salvador
September-October, Dominican Republic
October-November, Uruguay
November, Chile
