Heading Out to Chicago – August 2008

This morning, the family and I are driving out to Chicago to spend some time with our extended family before all the craziness of a new season of ministry starts. We will also spend a few days out in Atlanta with Pastor Matt and the JCA family. They have been so gracious and generous to […]

AMI Pastors’ Summit Update 2

In the afternoon session, we had the opportunity to hear about what God is doing in all of our missionary post around the world. The testimonies were powerful. There were stories of divine connections and appointments, Chinese nationals coming to Christ, business opportunities for missions work, and etc. It was a fresh reminder that God […]

AMI Pastors’ Summit Update 1

After getting on another flight, I finally made it to the conference. It was good reconnecting with all the pastors in AMI. I ended up walking into an afternoon prayer time and the Holy Spirit was there, as people were crying out to God. We ended up fasting – from dinner until the morning. I […]

A Rookie Mistake

I don’t know how long I have been traveling, but after awhile we begin to do things mindlessly. This morning, I ended up missing my flight to L.A. Since I was told that my flight was at 8AM and that I was going to be picked up at 6AM, I just assumed that everything was […]

Austin Visit Update 2

I met up with the team for lunch yesterday afternoon. Some of them had to work therefore they were not able to make it out, but it was a great lunch by the riverside with the rest of the team. It was a unique seafood Tex-Mex menu which was awesome. Now, I see how people […]

Austin Visit Update

It was good seeing the whole team last night. We ended up going to a real Texan BBQ. It was incredible because they cook all the meat right in an open pit. As we were sharing in a meal, we had an opportunity to catch up. We praise God because most of the members have […]

Heading Out to Austin

I am at the airport (again). Today, I will be heading down to Austin to spend some time with the Austin church plant team. As they are getting ready to launch their first inaugural Sunday Celebration at the end of this month, I wanted to go and encourage them and pray with them. This is […]

S.E. Asia Trip 2008 Update 11

We are almost home as we are waiting in Seattle. Our flight to DTW is going to board in about 2 hours. It almost seems surreal that we are back in the States. Sometimes after spending time away from the States, a person goes through a reserve culture shock. But one thing that I am […]

S.E. Asia Trip 2008 Update 10

We spent a good portion of the morning just reflecting and sharing some of our thoughts from the trip, especially in Jakarta. It is always helpful to process some of the things that we have experienced in order to put the proper perspective on things. We had our last dinner in Indonesia with Louisa and […]

S.E. Asia Trip 2008 Update 9

One thing I have been telling the team is that in Indonesia (or any part of the world) we have to learn to be flexible. There are so many unknowns that happen all the time that without being flexible, we will get easily frustrated. As we were planning on going to a particular international church, […]

S.E. Asia Trip 2008 Update 8

We made a trip out to Bandung today. Bandung is known as the textile capital of Indonesia and even possibly in all of S.E. Asia. But our main purpose for going to Bandung was to visit some of the universities. Some of the top Indonesian universities are located in Bandung. It was a long 2.5 […]

S.E. Asia Trip 2008 Update 7

Today, we went to Karawaci and met up with Dan over at Universitas Pelita Harapan. It is one of the premier universities in Jakarta. The great thing is that it is a Christian university. They have stated that they wanted to be like the Wheaton College of Asia. We ended up meeting with the Vice […]

S.E. Asia Trip 2008 Update 6

We rejoined the rest of the team today in Jakarta. It was good just catching up and sharing some of the things that we witnessed in Lampung to the other teammates. Then we went out for dinner with some of the people that we have been building a relationship with here in Indonesia. They took […]

S.E. Asia Trip 2008 Update 5

We arrived safely in Jakarta last night. It was great being welcomed at the airport by some old friends like Louisa and Engel and even Yonas. It is hard to believe that I have been to Indonesia enough times that I am beginning to develop a strong relationship with some people. The team split up […]
