Manna and 290 dump trucks?

What does manna have to do with a dump truck?   Just keep that questions in the back of your mind, as we think about Israel’s exodus from Egypt to Canaan. The account can be found in the book of Exodus.  God had intended Israel to travel from Egypt to the land of Cannan.  Sadly, Scripture records that they rebelled and grumbled against the Lord.  God punished Israel’s lack of faith, by not allowing them to enter Canaan. Instead, they would wait 40 years in the Wilderness.  During that time, God supernaturally provided for his people with Manna (Bread from Heaven) and quail. Think about...

A home of our own

We are happy to report that about three weeks ago we moved into a rental home in Gilbert, AZ!  It has been 1500 sqft of restful beauty.  God provided couches, beds, kitchen supplies and towels through dear friends at Grace Bible Church, Grace Community Church and others.  Smedly Yates and Adam Bossom were quick last minute helpers that moved a TON of items in just under 2 hours!  We are still trying to get “settled” but the time that we have had thus far has been very sweet. When we arrived back in October, we moved in with our dear friends Josh and Julie Kellso.  Their home had plenty of...

One Christian fad you should pickup: Bible Reading

One Christian fad you should pickup:  Bible Reading

Fads Come and Go… Although I have only existed for a mere 35 years, I have seen my share of Christian fads.  Let me name a few:  Experiencing God, Velvet Elvis, The Prayer of Jabez, the Shack, and of course The Purpose Driven Life.  Sometimes the fad is biblically sound and theologically clear.  Other times, the teaching will focus too pointedly on a single attribute of God, that the fullness of his attributes are missed.  Sometimes… the fad is heresy.  One thing we can always count on is that there are more “fads” on the horizon and that is not going to change...

Visiting with a dear friend:  Joey Tartaglia

There’s just something refreshing about breaks in regular patterns of life.  It’s even sweeter when that break in life is a sweet friend from the States!  Joey Tartaglia came to PNG to give the Canns their third language check in nDo.  What’s great is that we had the opportunity to visit with him for a few days before he flew into Mareroro, and we have several days with him before he departs this Friday. Joey is a director of Finisterre Vision.  He is also the one who trained us for PNG.  This always makes for easy conversations, recalling fond memories and a lot of...

Freedom from Traditionalism

Freedom from Traditionalism

Meet Jon and James.  Jon is the handsome beardy fellow on my right, James is on my left.  Jon is a deacon at our Madang EBC Church body.  James, is the Associate Pastor.  I love these men, and find myself continually thankful for their ministry in Madang.  God saved Jon out of traditionalism and he recently shared his testimony with me. This last Sunday, Jon was sharing his testimony with the congregation.  He is already a soft spoken guy.  Add in the fact that there were fans running, a poor PA system and puppies running around the pews.  It was a perfect storm to make it even harder to...
