The Waterfall Class

The little school on the ridge of the huge waterfall has begun! We met with six students this week, gave them their books, and opened class. We loaded them down with homework (50 chapters of Genesis and 5 pages of hermeneutics homework). Since then, we have been communicating with them. They are diligently working on their homework and reporting that they will need… (more…)

New Chapter of Life

This week, we will be packing up and moving to Soroit, Uganda. This transition is one full of mixed emotions. While we are very excited to be shifting to a more remote area with a greater need of pastor training, I will miss all of my Kenyan family greatly. God has already provided us with a fully furnished three bedroom… (more…)

Women Disciple-ing Women

Wow, I’ve been so busy I haven’t been communicating. Sorry for my lack of blogging and missions reports. I just arrived back home in America on Saturday night, so now I have time to blog.

Good, Gooder, Goodest!

He and his church were very enthusiastic about BTCP (Bible Training Center for Pastors). By the time we left Tanzania on our way back to Kenya,… (more…)

Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia

Hello everyone! We have finally made it back to Kenya after a 23 day journey of traveling 4170 miles across what seemed on the map to be a small portion of this huge content. Our team consisted of the Woottons (International Directors), Thomas Kirui (National Director), 3 of our regional leaders, 2 BTCP graduates from Ugandans, and myself. Here is… (more…)

Driving to Class

When I am in the States, people ask me, “how many classes do you teach in a day?” They are always shocked to hear me respond “one.” People often times don’t grasp that BTCP doesn’t have one official campus. All of the class rooms are spread out hours apart in different villages. I would say on average it takes me… (more…)
