New Total for Camp Rhino – Over $80,000 Now

This past week my family was privileged to be a part of Worth Baptist Church’s missions conference in Fort Worth, TX.  Pastor Tyler Gillit, his staff, and church people put on a spectacular conference.  The Saturday night Foreign Food Festival was unbelievable.  I’ve never seen so much involvement in a dinner like that, and I’ve […]

Just shy of $79,000 for Camp Rhino

First Baptist Church of Judson, TX and Pastor Tim Smith recently decided to partner with our family.  It’s always an honor when a church chooses our family to be their representatives in South Africa. First Baptist also surprised us this month by sending an extra $1500 for Camp Rhino. With this great offering our total […]

One more $1000 from Dundalk, MD

On Sunday, August 27th, I dropped into Calvary Baptist Church in Dundalk, MD to visit Pastor Stacey Shiflett and his family.  It had been many years since I saw the Shiflett’s.  It was through him that I made my first visit to South Africa back in 2003.  I don’t believe I would be a missionary […]

To Washington D.C. and Back Again

This past weekend, Luke and I flew up to Washington, D.C. to be at two meetings in the Baltimore, MD area.  On Sunday morning, it was great seeing Pastor Stacey Shiflett, his family, and people at Calvary Baptist Church.  During the Sunday PM service I was privileged to report back to Pastor Scott Tewell and […]

Kentucky & Missouri

Today and tomorrow, I am traveling with my son Luke to present our ministry to a church in Gilbertsville, KY and then to report back to a supporting church in Poplar Bluff, MO.  Following the evening service in Poplar Bluff, we will head back to Georgia in order to escape the Monday eclipse travelers.   […]

$1000 at a time

Last night, one of our supporters, Mt Zion Baptist Church in Danielsville, GA with Pastor Duncan, voted to give $1000 for Camp Rhino.  That’s 3 churches since last weekend to give $1000 a piece to help buy property to start this new camp ministry.  This gift takes us over $74,000 that has been given or […]

The Wilds

When deciding to start Camp Rhino, I knew there would be an enormous learning curve heading into that area of ministry.  Since our arrival to the States, I’ve tried to visit different camps and meet with their directors in order to gain as much knowledge as I could about camp ministry. Last month, when visiting […]

$2000 for Camp Rhino from Ohio

Sunday morning I reported back to a faithful supporter, and Sunday evening I presented our ministry in a new church.  Both churches surprised me when they each gave $1000 for Camp Rhino. Calvary Chapel Baptist Church in Minster, OH has faithfully supported my family since 2001.  I enjoyed seeing Pastor Robert Warnick, and the Assistant […]

Marriage Retreat

Our home church hosted a marriage retreat this past week in Atlanta, GA.  They booked a hotel and conference center for the retreat only about 30 minutes away from the church.  After all our traveling it was nice to have the retreat so close. I’m glad to know we have a Pastor and church staff […]

Breaking the $70,000 Mark for Camp Rhino

On Sunday and Monday of last week, July 23-24, I had an opportunity to preach at the Summer Family Bible School hosted by Liberty Baptist Church in San Jose, California with Pastor Stan Smith.  This is the church where my good friends Ross and Sue Pyle now work. They previously were missionaries with us in South […]
