Time flies. We’re back on our every-other-year schedule and are looking forward to reconnecting with you during an extended home assignment from July to December.[Read more…]
Good News/Bad News—Bad News First: Our Home Assignment is Postponed to 2021
When last I wrote I announced that we were planning our home assignment for this summer and that “we’re hoping this year will be no exception” to our regular biennial schedule. But even then (March 15), the coronavirus had already been declared a pandemic and now we know this year is, indeed, an exception.[Read more…]
Planning our 2020 Home Assignment in July and August
It’s our custom to visit the States for home assignment in even numbered years and we’re hoping this year will be no exception. We’ve already purchased tickets to leave Vienna and arrive in Chicago on June 24 and we’re looking forward to sharing in person about life and ministry in Slovakia.[Read more…]
Glad to be a Part of the EFCA and ReachGlobal
We’re happy to be a part of ReachGlobal, the global mission of the Evangelical Free Church of America.
We think its mission is right on target.
And we think it’s great to be among those taking God’s message of salvation to the ends of the earth.
And we think you should too.
Our First 2019 Newsletter is in the Mail
I’ve just sent out our latest newsletter in which I resolve to communicate better with our support team in 2019 and januflect on the 2018 and 2019 ministry years. This year we moved in to a new home and I published my first book.
A Picture Book for Home Assignment
We’ve created a picture book that we’ll be bringing with us on home assignment. We hope this will be one way to share our ministry with you. It contains some basic information about Slovakia and our family as well as some snippets about theological education, Narnia Elementary School, our local church and more. If you won’t see us on home assignment, you can at least click through to see an online version (sorry, flash only, there’s no mobile version).
I’ve Finally Sent Our First 2018 Newsletter
I’m afraid I’ve had a very busy spring and wasn’t able to communicate well. I had a great semester rewriting lectures for my Old Testament class and teaching Exegesis of Proverbs and Advanced Hebrew Reading Skills. This year I had a dream class of three great Hebrew students. That’s a rarity at our small school. And now, finally, I’ve released our first newsletter for 2018, my 26th year of ministry in Slovakia.
A Shift in Strategy for Our 2018 Home Assignment
It’s time once again for our biennial home assignment trip to the United States to report on our ministry in Slovakia. We’ll be arriving in Chicago on June 25 and departing on August 22. This year we have a different goal than usual and there are lots of ways we need help to make this an effective time in the States.
