Dear Friend, I am so thankful to be in this ministry of helping churches reproduce churches. A missionary here in Kenya said to me the other day, “This is so exciting and to think you get to do this all the time.” He is so correct. I get to see these new churches born, but it is much...

Dear Friend, During this Christmas season, we are reminded of how much the Lord Jesus has done for us. He willingly came to this earth, lived among sinful men, and went to the cross to pay for our sins. There could be no better gift given than His life for ours. It also reminds us of...

Dear Friend, IT IS GOOD TO BE HOME!!!!! As I arrived at the Toronto Airport on October 23rd I realized that the longest stretch of ministry without a break was over. Beth and I left home on August 28th and had only been home for five days in nearly two months. During this time there were...

Dear Friend, This September has been one of the busiest months of this ministry. We have driven nearly 4,000 miles and spent 20 hours on a ferry to get on and off the island of Newfoundland.

Dear Friend, Many of you do not know that we are celebrating a special anniversary right now. It was ten years ago, August 1, 1993 that my wife and I began Baptist Church Planting Ministry. We resigned the church in Manitoba on June 2nd of that year and began BCPM on August 1st. It was an exciting...

Dear Friend, For those of you who read our monthly prayer letters, you may have wondered what happened to us last month. There were several reasons for not mailing our letter, but the main one was that we were holding our annual meeting at that time and our secretary was on vacation for two weeks and out...

Beginning in May we will be able to slow down a little bit and begin to prepare for the fall meetings and to get caught up on some office work and work around our home.  When we travel so much, things tend to get behind on the...
