 About Self

On May 5, 1984 I left the American life, choosing to answer the call of God to serve on the foreign field. It’s been an interesting ride that’s taken me to many countries of the world. As one might imagine, it has also netted me a wealth of real-life stories of God’s faithfulness under all kinds of stresses and through all sorts of adventures. Until the Lord instructs me otherwise, I’ll continue to serve Him as an international worker, the new term for foreign missionary.

My greatest joy in life is sharing the evidence of God’s love and faithfulness in the lives of His people, through Bible stories and modern-day experiences with God.

I love reading, music and hiking…. chocolate goes well with all of my activities.

God took care to see that I received the training and pre-missions experiences that would serve me well in the career He had chosen for me. If you’re interested in those specifics, they are listed below.

At the prompting of friends, I wrote a book to put into print what I’d been teaching in seminars on dealing with fear. The book is the five-step model God shared with me shortly after I lost my eyesight. I had been living in a jungle village, serving as the Medical Director of the Bethlehem Clinic at the time. Through His grace, I continued to serve Him in that location. (Title: Dealing with Our Fears When Letting Go Seems Impossible)

The testimony of my surrender to Christ is recorded in the first FW Trials and Triumphs book (“From Dare to Eternity”.) The incredible account of God reaching out to a group of high schoolers on a mountaintop in Montana is recorded in FW’s second Trials and Triumphs: Rooted and Grounded in Love book (“Faith Around the Campfire,”.)

In 2012 I placed as one of the two Runners-Up in the FW Nonfiction Page-Turner Contest. The entry, Grace for the Night Hours is the working title for the memoir of my first three years serving as a blind clinician in the jungle.

In addition to my website, I have a memoir blog. The purpose of this twice –weekly blog is to share what I’m discovering about God’s hand on my life from my earliest memories to the present. Those posts can be found at understandinggod.info
