Back to Malawi again

On April 2 Debbie and I leave for South Africa and Malawi. This will be my seventh trip to Africa (and Debbie's 3rd) in the last 30 months. This will be our first mission trip together since 2001. We are excited!

Debbie and I have been captured by Africa and by the opportunities to walk alongside African churches and ministries as they bring hope to those infected and affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

Check out the link below to get more information about our trip and how you can help us get to Africa.

Thanks so much for your prayer and your help.

Yes We Can

Check out this great little video based on Barak Obama's speech entitled "Yes We Can". I found it quite inspiring.


While I have a lot of political thoughts swirling around my head, I have been reluctant to publicly state what I think. I have narrowed down my political choices for the fall of this year to the following two individuals.

Republicans - John McCain
Democrats - Barak Obama

I believe both of these men have more integrity than most politicians out there, and that they are not afraid to tell us what they honestly think (even if we may not agree, or their party does not agree). We need more people like that.
