I am an American whose passion is to follow Christ wherever He leads, and for now that means departing this year for church-planting ministry in Western Europe. (I have been in the U. S. on furlough). I belong to a non-charismatic church. I believe that serving on the field is God's will for me now, but I'm open to His re-direction. The work is both rewarding and challenging. The greatest joy is seeing someone join God's family and grow in faith, becoming a vital part of the local body. I love all the arts, and I occasionally draw/paint. I relish a cup of coffee with a good friend, or going out to an Indian restaurant. Long walks are a favorite time to think or pray. I am wondering if God will lead His choice of a widowed or never-married man my way. IMPORTANT: I have allowed my membership to lapse and am considering whether to renew it. Thank you if you have emailed me, but I won't be able to reply unless I decide to re-join.
