Over the years I have on occasion visited what I now think of as home, Hong Kong. It has changed so very much but I still have friends there and stay in contact. But it was those formative years back in the 60’s that was the fire that forged who I am today. 

In 1980 I returned to Hong Kong for a short time and again joined my parents who had started a ministry to the underground church in China supplying the printed Word. I got a job teaching English to the Vietnamese Boat People at Argyle #4 camp in Kowloon and would take the train into China on the weekends, delivering Bibles to our contacts inside China. They were so appreciative. 

That’s why I say, Missions is who I am.

That’s why I ministered in Kenya teaching local pastors near Victoria Falls in the mid-1990s. One elderly local pastor surprised me saying that he had been saved by reading a printed track that he found beside the road one day. It happened to be a track that my dad and I had printed for evangelist T. L. Osborn in Africa!

That’s why following Hurricane Katrina, I collected many needed items and took off work to go and help rebuild homes in Gulfport and Biloxi MS. 

That’s why I found myself in Banda Ache, Indonesia following the worst known tsunami in recent history, that took the lives of a quarter million people, and devastated entire developments over a large portion of ocean front properties in Asia. The trip to Indonesia was another event that rekindled my desire to be on the mission field. It was there I determined to get a Master’s degree in Agriculture with certification in aquaponics, so I might be able to help in food deserts, and teach natives how to grow a substantial amount of food in non-agricultural regions.

Although I went on a university sponsored trip to Equador, again God opened doors for me to minister to young people there in 2017. Not only did I minister overseas, I ran a nonprofit organization called Project Noah, Inc. that provided sanctuary to exotic animals. God used my lions and tigers to attract many people to whom I was able to minister and share the gospel.
