Sharing Christ With Confidence and Not With Fear.
In our last article, we started talking about how we can turn our fears of sharing the Gospel and become people who are sharing Christ with confidence. Our confidence comes from knowing that we are not alone in this important work and mission of God. When we commit in our hearts to faithfully obey Jesus’ command in Matthew 4:19 to be “fishers of men”, we become a part of God’s unbeatable team of 3.
Help Us to Share Love & Hope With Orphans With AIDS in Kenya
On a recent mission trip to Kisumu Kenya we worked with a church that runs a ministry for children and teens affected by AIDS. Many are orphans whose parents died from the disease, and they are being raised by relatives or someone else. Most of the people or families do not have enough resources to raise them. A large portion of them are orphans that have been infected and are born with AIDS.
Mission Trips & Ministry Schedule 2019
We are in our 14th and final year of international missions. We have had the privilege of speaking in almost 400 schools in 27 countries to share the Gospel with students, teachers, and families.

Mission Trips to Kenya & Uganda – February 2019
We recently returned from mission trips to Kenya and Uganda. We have been to Kenya 4 times now, to various places such as Nairobi, Kisii, and Kisumu. This was our 2nd time to Uganda, and we have now had 43 mission trips in the last 5 years. As usual we experienced a great deal of spiritual warfare, especially at the beginning of our time in Kenya and also in Uganda.
Missions & Evangelism Training – People Sharing Jesus
When God called us to sell my business and be self funded missionaries back in 2005, He gave us a very clear vision or plan for us to follow. He called us to do 4 specific things as missionaries:
- Preach in churches (to encourage & challenge members to participate in God’s mission)
- Help church to share the Gospel in their community (community outreach events)
- Share Christ in schools (through our Quality Of Life school outreach project)
- Train pastors & church members to successfully fulfill God’s mission of share the Gospel & make disciples
How To Successfully Share Christ With Others
Sharing Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit
In Matthew 4:19 Jesus told His followers “Follow Me and I will make you fishers of men.” In a previous post we discussed that Jesus was not only talking to His followers that are pastors or church leaders or missionaries. Jesus was commanding all of His followers/disciples to go and continually share the Gospel with others in their daily lives.
Make Disciples Is The 2nd Part Of God’s Mission
In a previous post we discussed the first part of God’s mission that He has for His followers and church. To follow Jesus and be “fishers of men” (Matthew 4:19). In other words, to obey His command and share the Good News of Jesus with lost people. This command and part of God’s mission is for all believers, not just for pastors, church leaders, or missionaries.
Follow Jesus – Be Fishers Of Men
In Matthew 4:19 Jesus told His followers, His disciples, to “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men”. This is the first part of God’s purpose and mission for His followers and His church. To follow Jesus and be fishers of men, or to go and share & preach the Gospel.
Our Mission Trips to Kenya & Uganda
On Monday February 4 we will be travelling on missions trips to Kenya & Uganda. This is our 14th and final year in international missions. We started as self funded missionaries for 7 1/2 years in Brazil, and then in 2014 God led us to Florida and we started visiting up to 10 countries each year on mission trips.
