Here is an update of my life and ministry

My wife, Connie, and I are now grandparents to 6 grandchildren and all 4 of our children are happily married. They all live close-by, so we are happy to be able to see them often.

The last 7 years of my life have been a new chapter for sure.

Word of Life has increased evangelism & missions and I now oversee 45 international Word of Life campuses: 18 locations in Rwanda, 18 in Congo, 5 in Kenya, 1 in Uganda, and 3 in India. Plus, we are preparing to start another 50 campuses in the next 12 months!
As some of you know, I am the Director and Founder of Home of Hope, which is a project of Word of Life. This ministry has been helping desperate children over the last 7 years and is now helping over 7500 children regularly! The goal is to help 10,000 children – which we are praying that this will happen THIS YEAR.

I have never taken a salary from Home of Hope donations and I am so thankful for people who believe in me and support the ministry.

Want to go on a mission trip with me?

See a list of upcoming mission trips with HOH here.

If you sponsor a child with HOH, you can meet and spend time with them! I highly recommend this – it’s life-changing.

  • In August, I am going to Turkey and Kyrgyzstan.
  • At the end of November, I will be leading my 20th team to Africa.
  • In February, I will take my yearly trip to India & Nepal.

Sponsor a project

We are so thankful for churches and businesses who sponsor entire church locations and Home of Hope locations, so that they can go visit that area and continue to be involved with its future developments.
You can buy land and partner with a starting church.

An Albertan church partnered with a church in Kenya and saw their own attendance in Canada double!

Also, for just $320/month, you, your business or church can sponsor a feeding program that will feed 100 children every week!
