Seriously?


Have you heard the stories of the Moravian Missionaries who sold themselves into slavery in order to minister to the slaves in the Caribbean Islands? They left their families and everything they knew in Germany to become plantation slaves. Would you be willing to do this? It is hard to imagine.

My first novel

Have you decided what Christmas present to purchase for that special young person in your life? My books are geared towards teenagers so they are crammed full of the same kind of intense adventures that you already know that I have lived through if you’ve been reading my newsletters. Your support would definitely encourage me to finish the editing of the rest of the series. Book 2 is nearly done.

Mission Focused Sunday School
Anne and I led six mission focused Sunday School classes at FEPC. The children excitedly enjoyed the scavenger hunt, the obstacle course, the many stories, and especially the village simulation where they got to eat snake.

Snake: I boiled off the skin, then sautéed the meat in garlic and added seasoning.

Returning Staff: The Richards
Our wonderful friends the Richards have come to live with us as they build their new home on two acres ajacent to us. Their new house will come equipped with facilities to house and train DTS students.

Teaching on Spiritual Warfare
Twice this year I’ve been invited to teach on Spiritual Warfare at the Discipleship Training Course at Shepherd Gate Church in Virginia. I love teaching on this topic because I have so many fun stories to share about this from my adventures in Asia. It was especially poignant to share this over the Halloween weekend. While there, I was asked if I could pray over some houses. We gathered a team and went to pray over three homes.

DTC Outreach to St. Croix

The church also asked if I would be willing to help lead their team to St. Croix Virgin Islands for the second time this year.

The children had me catch about 15 lizards.

St. Croix Outreach
Soon, I was back on this beautiful Caribbean island. YWAM St. Croix took great care of us as we ministered to the islanders. We prayed for people in the hospital and...

Of course, my team wished they could have stayed longer.

Moravians
Last week I was in St Croix, US Virgin Islands. It's a city with so much history. Every building tells a story. Some tell painful stories. Some tell stories of hope. Some tell stories to inspire. I visited two Moravian Churches, praying with my teammates. And I remembered the story of Dober and Nitschman, two Moravian missionaries who were willing to lay down their lives for the sake of Christ. Willing to give it all so that the oppressed would know and receive hope. Their bravery inspired the sending out of thousands more missionaries.

Where the Moravians first landed in St. Croix

I wandered the church grounds, and discovered a large area that had been recently cleared from vegetation. It was an old graveyard. Many of the gravestones had faded away and were no longer readable but the result of their passion endures. I took some pictures as I thought back on their story.

One of the Moravian Gravestones

In 1732, John Leonard Dober and David Nitschman of the Moravian Movement in Herrnhut, Germany decided the only way to reach a particular group of slaves (around 2,000 or 3,000 on one Virgin Island Plantation) was to sell themselves as slaves. Meaning they would never return to their homes and families. This was not a short-term trip, or a four-year term. They were expecting to give their lives for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As they sailed away from their families and home, they called out, “May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward for His suffering!” Over the next 50 years, many more Moravians were sent into the Virgin Islands, in order to reach the most down trodden and oppressed of the Empires. They learned Creole (which no white person would speak), they lived with the slaves, they petitioned for better conditions and taught trades. 13,000 slaves were baptized in the first 50 years of the Moravian Missionary Movement on the Virgin Islands. Over 2,000 Moravian Missionaries were sent out over a 150 year period, and the Moravian founder Count Zinzendorf influenced John Wesley and William Carey!
