We have occasionally written about “Mike,” who got saved in November 2013.  March 22, 2018, his mother passed away due to cancer.  The funeral was March 23, 2018..
His father, who was born into a Sunni Muslim household, has outwardly converted to becoming a Shiite Muslim. The mosque group that is attending to them are supplying them with all kinds of money, material items such as clothing, care for the children, providing a new house for them, and promise of getting the father a green card. They have started a go fund me page and in it they claim that his oldest son has mental issues. Those who know “Mike” and his family all know that he openly calls himself a Christian. There have been attempts to get him to revert to Islam.
“Mike” told us that his mother requested that he move back in with his father, do what he says, keep his real beliefs in his heart (as opposed to openly calling himself a Christian), and make sure to care for his younger siblings.  Because of his devotion to his mother, this puts an incredible amount of inward pressure for him to conform to the dictates of Islam and Muslim sensibilities.

1.  Please pray for him and his family.

2.  We want to bring your attention to the Legacy Conference that will take place in Dearborn, May 31 -June 2.

The website is:  If you would like to bring a group from your church please contact us.


It’s a very busy season here at Discovery Church in Galway, Ireland. We are doing prep work in the upper level of our building to prepare for the teams coming this spring/summer.  There is so much work to be done, but the Lord has provided workers!!  Thank you for praying for us and for Ireland!


1.     Wisdom and favor as we organize and strategize for our upcoming work teams.

2.     Financial provision so that we can complete our second floor which includes our children’s church room. When it is complete, we will be the only church in the west of Ireland with a room of this size dedicated to children and youth.

3.     Wisdom and favor as we help to strengthen the youth ministry as well as build a children’s ministries here at Discovery Church in Galway.


We appreciate your prayers so much. What you do really does make a difference in the Kingdom!


1.     Our biggest prayer is for a good transition from AGWM into ministry work at home.  We will make that change March 31st and still have some big decisions to make for our future.


1.     They will be traveling to teach at a bible school in Romania at the end of August. They will be team teaching a class on Introduction to Islam. Right after they get back from there, B will be teaching a class at the bible school in Kuma NoVo on the Holy Spirit and The Gifts.  He taught a class on World Religions in April/May.

2.     They are starting up with hosting teams this summer (starting June 20th). They have an AIM Team from Minnesota coming first; a Chi Alpha Team from the University of Wyoming coming in July and a team from White Cloud, MI in September. Thanks for praying for them as we minister together!

  1. With Holy Week now upon us, more Filipinos are giving attention to issues of faith than any other time of year except Christmas. Please pray that many would come to know Christ this week.
  2. Also, on Good Friday, tens of thousands of witchdoctors, fortunetellers, sorcerers and other practitioners of witchcraft and divination, etc., will go to selected mountains to perform secret rituals to renew their powers. These are actually supernatural transactions with demonic powers. Please pray that Jesus will reveal himself to them and that these demonic strongholds would be broken.

  1. Next week, Tuesday, I head for a medical missions conference in Greece. Pray for travel safety and for good connections and learning during the conference and for wisdom as I come back to Zambia to apply what I learned well.
  2. I need continued wisdom on saying yes and no to the multiple projects and wonderful ideas and great needs I’m presented with. I want to do the best, not just good.
  3. Please pray for 2 week old boy with possible pneumonia, needing oxygen to breath. He’s doing well but we need final answers on if his heart is okay. It’s taking more than a week to get an echocardiogram and ECG.
  4. Please pray for a middle-aged man with a serious complication to malaria called blackwater fever. It has really affected his kidneys and he is very anemic. Please pray his kidneys recover.

Praise report for 2017

With the help of some of our awesome supporters, we were able to bring a great crew to our annual SALT conference. SALT stands for Student Awakening Leadership Transformation, and God certainly transformed the lives of the students who went this year.  We had three students called into full-time missions after graduation,
three more filled with the Holy Spirit, one student delivered of a demon, one student healed of a psychological condition with which he struggled for 3 years. This same student repented of a lifestyle of drugs and alcohol and filled with the Holy Spirit. It was an incredible weekend!

Upcoming for 2018

This semester we are holding classes for our up-coming core group leaders. We have 8 students who want to become core group leaders next semester. This semester we are prepping them with a training course. We are also planning a summer missions trip that will be announced once the details are set.
JM has written a book that is set to be published this year. You’ll learn more about that, and every one of our financial partners will receive a free copy. We are very excited about it! Kara, as many of you know, is a registered dietitian and nutritionist and has started a blog. She is also looking to begin a food coaching service in order to help people meet their health goals. A very exciting year ahead of us.

1.     Things are really starting to stir in our ministry right now. God has given us opportunities like never before. One of the coolest things is our “Discovering Isa Bible Study” (Isa is the Arabic word for Jesus) This is with 6 Muslims who want to know more about Isa. For them, Isa was the 2nd Greatest prophet, but we pray they will know him as Lord and Savior. We have the opportunity each week to study the Gospels in a very open format. They know I am a pastor and they are hungry for more. Pray with us to see God’s glory fall. Thanks so much!

2.     The last week in April, I will be going to Benin, West Africa on an assessment trip.  This is a trip where I will be working with Marti & Brenda Roman to see the best way that CompassionLink can serve the people in a specific community.  We will be sending a team in October depending on what I learn in April.  I lived and worked in Benin, West Africa for 2 years so I am excited to visit again.

3.     Personally, I am trying to get healthier physically.  Please pray that I would continue to do those things that will promote good health in my body.

1.     Please continue to pray with us for the pastors that are continuing to rebuild, the area damaged by a Hurricane. They are experiencing some opposition/harassment from the government because they didn’t have the materials to rebuild in the allotted time-frame, but it was the government that was holding the materials up in customs so they couldn’t begin building.

2.     Please pray for favor with local government officials and that the harassment would stop.

3.     Also, please pray for the three other projects that I have going on, because of all the damage in the country the government is sending all of the building materials there and/or not releasing materials they have stored in warehouses. We have been searching unsuccessfully for cement to pour the final roof sections on the main project since February.
