Urgent!!! Massive Flooding in Mindanao

Flood waters ravaged entire communities in Cagayan de Oro and Iligan Friday evening as families slept unaware of the pending danger. The totals continue to climb as officials conduct rescue and recovery efforts. Currently, dead 652; missing 808. “It’s difficult to be certain on those missing,” Gwendolyn Pang, secretary-general of the PNRC, told media. “The…

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Who knew October was “Wish I had a Clone” Month? Wowsers! It’s been busy, but busy has been really good. Amongst speaking engagements, Gift Drive at Radio Shine, a quick trip to Tennessee for our commissioning with Emerge Missions(check our latest Mission Update E-newsletter for the pics), I was also able to squeeze in a…

Cherished Memories

Kim and I celebrated 10 years with Radio Shine last Friday.  We were joined by a room full of friends as we recounted some very special moments in ministry and took a look ahead to God’s new plans for our family in the Philippines.  Highlights from the day included a moving opening prayer from Chaplain…

MedlinsOnMission are Up & Running…

…In spirit at least.  So, I’m lying here in my hospital room dying to go for a run.  I’m not very athletic, but I do love to run and it’s been since my injury in December that I last enjoyed pounding the pavement around my neighborhood.  Surgery behind me, I’ve got the itch…but now comes…

Exciting News from Muslim Concentrated Ipil

I just received this email from Brother Geoffrey, a dear Filipino pastor leading The Edge expansion in Ipil, Mindano. Kim & I had the honor of meeting during our visit in May. For 4 years he has been praying that The Edge could come to his town that is predominantly Muslim… “We completed the tower…

Thank you Focus on the Family!!!

Focus on the Family has become our latest supporter for The Edge Media.  The broadcast headquarters in Colorado Spings, CO donated tens of thousands of dollars in audio, video and networking equipment that we picked up for the team in Philippines.  The equipment will be put to use at The Edge Media in Manila as…

Jesus still connects

They call ours the “Connected Generation.” Yet for all the access and connecting opportunities the digital age offers, many are beginning to realize that much of it is just a weak substitute and distraction for real connectedness to the people and things that matter most. Here in the Philippines, daily internet use is the highest in the world.  We…

What the world needs now…

Can you sense the growing tension in our world?  Conflict and hostility are everywhere.  Just scroll through your Facebook feed…it seems everybody is mad at everyone for something.  In our polarized culture, nation and world is there a pathway to peace?  And if so, what is it and what is the Christian’s role in seeing…

Uh oh

So sorry to bother you with another email.  In a rush to communicate before hopping on a plane I accidentally made a critical typo.  When pasting the link to our web portal for donations, I somehow misplaced/deleted a colon.  That’s never a good idea but when you’re a ministry that lives month to month on donations…

The truth makes all the difference

Have you misunderstood someone this week?  Maybe you misheard what they said.  Perhaps you thought they did something they didn’t do or that they didn’t do something that they should have.  Regardless the cause, misunderstandings can take their toll on our relationships as bad information leads to wrong thoughts, to improper attitudes, to hurtful actions…

Prayer Update and Praise Report

A few weeks ago I sent an email asking for your prayers regarding a major change in how our ministry in the Philippines is funded.  In case you missed it, in a nutshell, the international grant that funds are operations was discontinued and we have had to make some very painful cuts in our programs…

There & Back Again. It was a wonderfully exhausting summer.

Reflecting over the past several months, it is hard to believe the Lord allowed us to cram so many incredible moments into such a brief span of time.  Starting with the birth of our precious Leia on May 1st and Dylan’s graduation from Faith Academy (awarded Most-Outstanding Senior Boy by the Faculty – proud papa insert) a few…

Introducing Leia

Welcome to our World Rejoicing over God’s newest gift to our family Surprise!  In September of last year we learned that God might be blessing our family with a new member.  We were thrilled but also concerned.  Any family who has ever experienced the pain of miscarriage knows too well the feeling that teeters back and forth between joy and…

Merry Christmas

God is with us! The Great Promise of Christmas is still true! Ask any of our kids and they’ll all tell you the same.  No matter how much our Christmas celebrations have changed over the years, at least one thing has remained a steady tradition.  Dad is going to cry during the reading of the Christmas story….
