Journey Update: August 2019

The old timers would say we are in the dog days of summer.  I have heard this all my life and envision lazy hound dogs seeking a cool shade under an old farmhouse porch.  However, the “dog days” of summer goes back to Roman times when they associated the star, Sirius (Dog Star) with the hottest days of summer.  It is during this time the tilt of the earth causes the Northern Hemisphere to be the hottest time because our hemisphere gets a more direct hit of the sun’s rays.

Journey Update: July 2019

This month is the 25th anniversary of Pathway Outreach Ministries.  I paused today and thanked God for His voice of calling and His hand of blessing.  It has been truly twenty-five years of miracles and we are still praying and expecting more.  We are also so thankful for those of you who have helped us during these many years.

I just returned from Haiti and I had a good and safe trip but it was the most dangerous time I have ever traveled to Haiti.

Journey Update — June 2019

I know summer has arrived in Alabama because of several tell-tell signs, such as, temps in the nineties, kids out of school, graveyards with fresh plastic flowers from decoration day, vacation Bible schools, and the first installment of yellow crook-neck squash.  I can’t wait for my first, fresh tomato sandwich (Recipe: two slices of white bread, two big slices of tomato, salt & pepper, and a glob of mayo.)  I just love my Southern way of life.  We pray y’all have a great summer!

Journey Update: May 2019

On one of our internet platforms, we include some information about Pathway’s reach to the world.  This is an excerpt: “The ministry of Pathway Outreach touches the lives of about 2,000 people weekly with spiritual bread and approximately 400 people weekly with physical bread.  We have affiliated and partnership ministries in five countries of the world; USA, Haiti, India, Cuba, and Pakistan.”   Even though I wrote this, I am a little overwhelmed when I read it.  I want to emphasize, we are only a tool in the hand of God and you, through your concern, prayer, and/or financial support are a participant in this mission endeavor.  Thank you!

Journey Update: April 2019

Butch Suddath and I finally made our way to Haiti.  We were hindered in February by the protests that had blocked roads and made our travel within Haiti almost impossible.  God blessed us with clear roads and a calmer situation.  We pray for peace and political stability for the country of Haiti.  We had no problems during our stay but it is something that stays in the back of your mind.  The embers of unrest can quickly flame up.  We appreciate the prayers that were prayed for us.

Journey Update: February 2019


The last week of January, our kids here in Alabama were hyped up for a good snow, only to awake to a cold rain.  Oh well, that’s Alabama for you!  The Bible in Proverb 13:12a (NKJV) says, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick.”  Most of us have been heart-sick over some disappointment.  We get our hopes up and then it deflates like a cheap balloon.  When we listen to people’s stories, we hear the heart-cry of broken dreams and promises.  In these moments, we have a great opportunity to share the hope we have in Jesus.

Journey Update — November 2018

Thanksgiving is just weeks away.  We want to wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving as you gather with your family to celebrate and to thank God for all of His blessings.  As Christians, we know that thanksgiving to God is very important.  In Psalms 100:4 (NKJV), it encourages us to, “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise, Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.”
