We have updated our webpage for the Amnion Crisis Pregnancy Center in Burnsville.CLICK HERE to visit the page.
A matching gift of $25,000 has been created by a special donor to help us purchase a new ultrasound machine.
A new machine will enable us to show better images of babies to moms and dads, and create an emotional bond, helping change their minds from abortion to choosing life. When you make a year-end donation to Amnion, your gift will be doubled...

We've posted an update for Casa de Niños in Mexico.CLICK HERE to read the post.DECEMBER 2013 - JANITORS FOR JESUS
In the beginning (1991) of my work with Casa de Niños, I would often think: "I did not go to Bible College for this." or "They never taught this at Bible College.". I soon found out a missionary is more than a Bible teacher. You must be a plumber, carpenter, electrician, chauffeur, cook, nurse and a doctor, a vet, a director, a leader, preacher, counselor, teacher, cleaner, farmer, fisherman, mechanic, janitor and much more.
Casa de Niños has 7 bathrooms. Who cleans them? The janitor! Casa de Niños has a security system with cameras, alarms and electric fence. It has 4 telephones, 85 light switches, 85 plug ins, 135 light bulbs, 11 fans, 29 fire alarms, 23 emergency lights, microwaves, computers, televisions, 4 refrigerators and the list goes on! Who is responsible for all of this? The janitor!CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING

December 9, 2013 - Soon Returning to South Africa
Another month has gone by. We have continued to do a lot of traveling. We have had good weather and safe travels. The car has done well except when we picked up a 4-inch nail in one tire. Our host that weekend has lots of experience repairing tires and had it fixed quickly.
We were very sad to hear that Louw Koopman, one of our faithful ministers and teacher at the South African Bible Institute, had a fatal heart attack on the 1st of December. He was a student and then a teacher at Umzumbe Bible Institute so we have known him for a long time. He was a really good teacher and has recruited many students for SABI. He leaves behind a wife, 2 daughters, a son and a foster daughter. Please pray for the family and for SABI as they deal with this great loss.
We are winding down with just two more churches to visit. Then we will be doing some final shopping and packing. Oh, how we wish we were allowed more than one suitcase each! It looks like we will just pay the extra to take another one or two so we can take some books and some gifts back to our children and grandchildren and some of our friends in South Africa.
The family is looking forward to our return...

from TCM International.It changes from day to day! The Haus Edelweiss Cow Barn is taking on a totally new look as construction continues. The exposed area visible in the photo will be completed as four small efficiency apartments. The new third floor will house two additional efficiency apartments and a two-bedroom apartment. The ground floor will remain very similar to its past configuration: six sleeping rooms, a small kitchen, and a common gathering room...CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING
