Great Leaders Started Small, You’re Invited to Join Them!

Called to a tiny messed up church

John Maxwell has been voted as the most influential leadership expert in the United States (and the world) today. But how did he start? He started off as a pastor of a tiny church. His first assignment was a community,  Hillham, Indiana. The community had eleven (11) houses, two garages, one country store, and a little old church building that was over 100 years old. John Maxwell

Standing on the Shoulder of Giants

Sir Isaac Newton was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, alchemist, inventor, Christian theologian and natural philosopher. He is regarded as the most influential scientist in history and is most famous for discovering the Laws of Gravity. Newton’s work in physics was so advanced that he was the first scientist to be knighted, which is a great honor in England and the reason “Sir” precedes his name.

When the Elephant Dances, the Mouse May Die

Dr. Miriam Adeney, an anthropologist, missiologist, author, and associate professor of World Christian Studies at Seattle Pacific University, recounted the following story that an African Christian friend told her.

“Let me tell you a story about Americans,” an African Christian friend told her.

“Elephant and Mouse were best friends. One day Elephant said, ‘Mouse, let’s have a party!’ Animals gathered from far and near. They ate. They drank. They sang. And they danced. And nobody celebrated more and danced harder than Elephant. After the party was over, Elephant exclaimed, ‘Mouse, did you ever go to a better party? What a blast!’

But Mouse did not answer.

‘Mouse, where are you?’ Elephant called. He looked around for his friend, and then shrank back in horror. There at Elephant’s feet lay Mouse. His little body was ground into the dirt. He had been smashed by the big feet of his exuberant friend, Elephant. Sometimes, that is what it is like to do mission with you Americans,” the African storyteller commented. “It is like dancing with an Elephant.”

It Costs Less to Provide BETTER Orphan Care OUTSIDE Than INSIDE an Orphanage

Several years ago, we discovered a new method of orphan care that has now become our flagship method. We started this new method of Orphan Care in response to what we believe was a revelation from God. Since then, we have seen that child development research from top academic institutions like Harvard and the University of California have supported the method.

One of our orphans lives with this family. Because I grew up in this culture and in these types of conditions, God has given me the grace to see the beauty in this lifestyle than many outsiders can. Some people might think this family is poor and needs help. But this is the average household in this community. They do need help (like we all do) but they don't need any hand outs and can definitely support one or two orphans with daily food, love, and accommodation. They may need mentoring and advise, like we all do, to maximize their efforts and get more done. They are farmers and live by working on the farm five or six days per week.
