“God is pursuing with omnipotent passion a worldwide purpose of gathering joyful worshipers for Himself from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. He has an inexhaustible enthusiasm for the supremacy of His name among the nations. Therefore, let us bring our affections into line with His, and, for the sake of His name, let us renounce the quest for worldly comforts and join His global purpose.” — John Piper

I really like this quote from John Piper. It reminds me daily that we are strangers, aliens, that we are not of this world and thus the things that tie us to this world, our possessions and worldly pursuits are simply distractions. Our true focus should be on the one goal that is not of this world…the pursuit of leading people to become fully devoted followers of Christ.

In 1996 I made a personal realization after years of serving myself. I made a promise to God and told him that I had spent so many years leading people away from Him that I would spend the remainder of my days leading people to Him. From that day forward it has been my commitment to answer the Great Commission and pursue people for Christ. My wife and I share that same commitment today and we are seeking after others who are looking for the opportunity to partner with us in that quest.

In 2001 we left our home in Seattle and launched out into a life of world missions. We left behind our friends and family as well as our jobs and our paychecks. We joined Alternative Missions and began asking others to join with us by financially sponsoring us to reach people in Latin America for Christ. Since then we have ministered in Honduras, Costa Rica, Peru and Mexico. We have helped establish a long term work in the town of Puerto Viejo and continue to look for new opportunities in new locations around the globe.

Today we live and work in Roatan, Honduras. We have helped to establish a church for the international community living here on the island. Every week we bring the truth of God in unique and challenging ways to people here in hopes of leading people to become fully-devoted followers of Christ.
