A Classic Gag

Mike has been having trouble hearing for the past week.  He went to the drugstore and bought ear drops but with no result.  So yesterday he decided to go to the Dr. right before he taught doctrine class at the Central Church.  The doctor said that his ears were blocked and that he needed to take some drops to loosen up the wax.  She insisted that he needed to take some drops before he taught that night.  We bought the drops and went to the church, where Mike stretched out on a pew, to the amusement of some early-arriving young people. I started to administer the drops, and realized that I was not sure how many to put in.  I took a paper out of my pocket and shouted (because of his ears), "Read it to me!"

Mike boomed out, "2 ears of corn, 50 cents worth of peas..." amusing the young people still more.

Blushing, I shouted, "Wrong list!  And in English added "That's about the oldest joke in book..."

Oh well, pray for his ears to get better.  He's going to the Doctor this afternoon.

New Presentation Introducing Our Ministry and Peru

We designed this presentation for camp ministry, but it's also a good intro to the ministry and Peru for anybody.  It could be used in a missions moment as well, or possibly in Sunday School. You can  get it to play with speaker notes by clicking on the gear and selecting that.  If you want to use this and need any help please email us at .

We also have presentations on the geography, transportation, and foods of Peru.  Let us know if you would like to use or see those!

Ministry in Peru continues while we are in the US

In March, while we were up in Iowa, the team in Peru was doing an evangelistic campaign and training pastors in evangelism. They were rained out one day but were given an hour on the radio to make up for it.  A ministry that heard the program is interested in providing radio transmitters if we will broadcast solid teaching for rural communities.

Missionary Vision

We analyzed the story presented in the Bible for our Bible conferences, and it profoundly affected how we view things. Mike’s emergency eye surgeries for glaucoma have certainly put physical vision in the limelight. And we’re glad to report that his vision is stable in the right eye and his actually improved in his left eye. This has been a wonderful answer to prayer. As we start a new year another kind of vision has been on our minds. The vision of our ministry. Planning for another year of ministry is a good time to check on our ministry vision, and how it lines up with God’s vision. The source for all missionary work and vision is God’s vision as presented in the Bible. A few years ago we analyzed the story presented in the Bible for our Bible conferences, and it has profoundly affected how we view things. Reduced to its bare bones, the story of the Bible is this: The main character, God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) always existed. God created Man 1, the other major char…
