Our schools here in America are in full swing. Jennie and I have all five of our grandchildren in school now. They are enrolled from Pre-K all the …Journey Update: September 2022
December seems to be a busy month for most of us. Christmas functions and family get-togethers fill the calendar rather quickly. We pray you all have a wonderful season celebrating the birth of Jesus with your family, friends, and church family. His coming changed the big world and His coming into my life changed my little world. I would not want to imagine my life without Jesus. By His grace, I am a happy and excited follower of Jesus.Continue reading “Journey Update: December 2021”

My fellow gardeners know the pain of dying squash vines. They produce a bounty of squash and then the enemy of all squash, the infamous vine borer destroys the plant. This year, I staggered my plants over one month apart to extend my harvest. Now the squash are all gone but the okra is coming in like an ocean wave.Continue reading “Journey Update: August 2021”
In this month twenty-seven years ago, Pathway Outreach Ministries pushed off from the dock to begin its voyage as an organization. Our simple goal was to reach out with the Gospel of Jesus Christ to some of the difficult corners of the world.Continue reading “Journey Update: July 2021”
To say that our world here and abroad has changed in the last year is a big understatement. Cultural attitudes and societal norms have shifted. As a Christian, I have begun to think more deeply about the implications these things will have on the church going forward. I wonder how long it will be before our American culture revs up its opposition toward Christianity bringing about open persecution. This is not a popular topic but a real possibility.Continue reading “Journey Update: June 2021”

When I think about the month of May, I think of several things. In my student days and years in education, I eagerly looked forward to the school year coming to an end.

Other events in May for me is about birthdays; my birthday, Jennie’s birthday, and also Lizzy, our granddaughter’s birthday is in May. So it is an eventful month for our family.Continue reading “Journey Update: May 2021`”
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that we in the American church probably like to talk about prayer more than we pray. Prayer takes time and we are too busy checking out YouTube and Facebook. Ouch!
Anytime I have ministered in a church in one of the eastern nations, at least 80% of the congregation wants personal prayer at the end of the service. I have even had some bring their own oil with which to be anointed.Continue reading “Journey Update: April 2021”
One of my favorite mission scriptures is Mark 16:15 (NKJV) where Jesus told His disciples, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” He left no place untouched and left no one out—His Gospel is to all the world and to every person. The word “creature” in this scripture is not a demeaning term but speaks to the original formation of the being. The world divides men into races, politics, football teams, classes, etc., but God sees all people as the original formation who were created to be in a personal relationship with Himself.Continue reading “Journey Update: March 2021”
About one year ago, Butch Suddath and I returned to the United States from a mission trip from Asia on January 21, 2020. The news reports were trickling in about a coronavirus from China before we left, but it was mostly a dot on most people’s radar screen. The day we returned to the Atlanta Airport, the first confirmed case in the United States was announced with an individual in Washington state. It progressively grew worse.Continue reading “Journey Update: February 2021”
Here in the United States, we celebrated our Thanksgiving Day the fourth Thursday of November. It is unofficially but a real beginning of our Christmas season when we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.Continue reading “Journey Update: December 2020”
