Sunday's crisis

We have received a lot of emails from people who are concerned for our safety and the ministry of Back2Back since this past Sunday's crisis. Thank you all so much for your prayers and your emails and your concerns for our well being.

It was and always will be a tragedy when innocent people are killed and wounded in events that take place around Jos, Nigeria. These incidences are more than just religious crisis. It is a battle going on since many generations past, and it has many contributing factors, but a lot to do with land and wanting to "claim" it, no matter what the cost.

Will you join us in prayer as we continue to seek out the wisdom, wisdom that comes from above.

"And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us." Romans 5:2b-5

We trust that God's vision is larger and deeper than ours. We thank Him for opportunities to minister and serve the larger body. Thank you for all of you who have joined with us in the ministry of the orphan child.


  1. Read the WSJ article: and was concerned for your safety. Was relieved to read your blog. Prayed for you this morning. Thank you for pressing into God's mission. You're a great example for me.

    Now I'll go back to work in the safety of my suburban U.S. "life bubble";)

  3. thanks for the update. and once again, i am reminded to step up my praying. thanks for being willing to serve where God has called you, even in the midst of danger.


  4. Have been praying for you. In fact, I had a dream about you last night, and so want you to know that the Back2Back Nigeria mission, staff and children/families you serve are on my heart and are being lifted up in prayer!
