How it all started...
As a young believer in Jesus Christ I was very eager to know what God's purpose was for my life. This eagerness came to a boiling point in November 1980 when God met me at this place of eagerness and told me that He had given me ten nations of Europe, Asia, and Africa to hold and pray for "as a father prays for his children."
In 1984 He gave me the opportunity to go to Ethiopia. There I met and married my Proverbs 31 wife Muluyey. We worked together in a network of underground churches that God was building.
In 1986 I was instructed by God to return to the United States with the promise that He would bring me back to Ethiopia in due time to finish my course for Him. I came to understand this as First; serving in my father's vineyard faithfully and then in, my Father's time, receiving my own vineyard.
Twenty-five years later, in 2011, God brought me back to Ethiopia, to continue my course. Today, we have water development projects in Afar, Tigray, and Amhara Regions of Ethiopia reaching more than 100,000 people with safe drinking water every day. People have seen the Light and had their lives flavored with His Salt of Grace and Love through these projects. And there is still much more to come...
