I have been serving with AGWM since 1995 in Europe.  During those years I was involved in church planting and teaching at the Bible school in Brussels.

In September of 2009 I was diagnosed with stage 4, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and began medical treatments here in the states.
In my most recent post and newsletter I have talked about being able to go back to work as of September 1. I still have some medical problems that I am dealing with, but they are not life threatening. I have no more cancer! I want to thank Bakersfield First Assembly for standing with me during this long struggle. Your ongoing support has made it possible for me to get the medical care I needed and now be going back to work, doing what God called me to do.

For the time being I need to remain in SoCal as they are still regulating my medications at City of Hope. But I hope to be strong enough to return to Europe in the not-too-distant future.

My current missions assignment is to help with the organization of a training program for new and veteran missionaries. This has become a priority as the face of missions is under rapid change in Europe and around the world.
