Empower Pakistan Education Project

In 2012 while on a mission to a rural area of Pakistan approximately a 2 hour drive from the city of Lahore, I made a decision that could change the future for hundreds of children today and thousands in the future.  What I witnessed that day motivated me to start a school for children that may otherwise be forced to …

Changed Lives

I’ve been involved in ministry service for 31 years now.  And, still the most fulfilling and exciting moment I experience in this adventurous life is when a person surrenders their life to Christ and is baptized!  I love it when the light comes on in a person’s eyes! I love it when someone’s life is radically changed by Jesus like …

Another New Home for an Empower Orphanage!

It began with one. Now, we’re expanding! In 2006, we heard of a situation we couldn’t ignore and started a new journey in our ministry. A young child lost their parents and had no place to go. Situations like this attract predators of human trafficking rings to prey on these lonely children. They are offered an education and a job, as long as they go with …

The Plight of a 14 year-old Girl

Thin Myat Moon is a sensational student and enjoys every moment in school. In fact, a few years ago, she received an award for being the best pupil in her class.  She was ecstatic! As the school year approached in Myanmar this year, we were informed that Thin Myat’s single mother had no other choice but to send her daughter to find a job so she could help support her …

Building Buildings and Building Lives

Nearly 14 years ago Julie and I sold our home, cashed in a minuscule retirement account and liquidated everything we owned so we could follow our missionary dream in the 10/40 Window. We had nothing…no land, no buildings, no people. Nothing! But, we had a ton of faith in God and a vision that was unstoppable! Julie and I believe …

What’s New ’16?

A few days ago, I posted something on social media that I firmly stand by. This was my message: What is God saying about 2016? God is saying, “I’ve abundantly provided you My love, My likeness, My grace… salvation, life, strength, favor, anointing, power, prosperity, wisdom, creativity, and My Holy Spirit! Now, do your part to fulfill My mission to …

Myanmar: A Nation in Transformation

Julie and I recently conducted 2 powerful and strategic leadership conferences in the nation of Myanmar! There have been many prayers for many years for the liberation of the nation of Myanmar from the tyranny of military dictatorship. The last few years have seen the grip of oppression becoming less and less.  Prophecies have rung aloud in the heavens declaring change, …

The Mathematical Probability that Jesus is the Christ

The reason why prophecy is an indication of the divine authorship of the Scriptures, and hence a testimony to the trustworthiness of the Message of the Scriptures, is because of the minute probability of fulfillment. Anyone can make predictions. Having those prophecies fulfilled is vastly different. In fact, the more statements made about the future, and the more the detail, …

Thailand Mission

We just returned from nearly a month long mission in Thailand.  We preached, taught, trained and ministered what seemed to be day and night.  From Bangkok to Mae Sot to Chiang Mai and to remote villages, the power and presence of God changed people’s lives! The Empower Thailand Team has been engaged in many fruitful mission projects and they were …

Their Greatest Need

Hebrews 2:3—…how will we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? 1 Timothy 2:3-6—This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to the  knowledge of the Truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom …
