image1 copyThank you for your prayers and your encouragement as I step into this role as General Director of Praise International. It is an honor for me to serve the Lord in this ministry. For 30 years God has been directing Praise. Our resolve to actively and faithfully walk in His daily leading has never been stronger than it is today. We are committed to move forward as He leads.

Praise was established in 1979. That was also the year my wife (Debbie) and I graduated from Bible College in preparation to become missionaries. Over the last three decades, God enabled us to learn two foreign languages and work together with ministries on five continents. What a learning opportunity it has been! In those thirty years we have seen major shifts in the types of challenges faced in missions. Indeed, the whole world has changed. We are excited about helping Praise International face the challenges of today and prepare for the future.
