He and his wife, Karen, are blessed with two married children and 2 granddaughters.

Offering

“Two billion people today have no access to anyone who can tell them about Jesus. Only one in every thirty missionaries work among these two billion. For every $100 in the offering plate, only one penny goes to this work.” Are there any radicals out there who want to see this change? And would even be willing to help make it happen? But where would you even start?

The life of Radical 1 reveals why there are so few read radicals in the world and the church today, and why it’s so important that there be many.
01/15/2011
Radical 2 had his world by the tail. But that was before the radical reversal, which left him a great debtor. Therein lies the timeless moral of his story.
01/22/2011
What of the billions who have not yet heard the gospel? What hope do they have to be saved? The answer—which comes as a surprise, even an offense, to many—lies embedded in the thirteenth question, revealing God’s heart while affirming our call.
02/12/2011
Stories of organ transplants abound and have resulted in the saving of many lives. Organ donors are either deceased or have an extra organ they can live without. But who ever heard of a live donor of a healthy heart: the survival rate for the donor is zero! Which makes this story so compelling.
02/26/2011
“These are two radically different questions. ‘What can we spare?’ and ‘What will it take?’” Welcome to the radical query, the radical command, the radical invitation.

Changes to ADRA Giving Options

The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) and the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventist have decided to simplify the number of donation options. Historically, a significant number of options have been available when giving to ADRA allowing donors to specify a specific project or program. Going forward all currently existing ADRA donations will be consolidated into 5 major categories.

ADRA Health Programs
Poor health is often at the heart of poverty and suffering. Giving to the ADRA Health fund helps build healthier lives for those we serve by improving access to safe water sources, providing hygiene and sanitation solutions, helping families access nourishing food, supporting pregnant women and mothers, and delivering reliable health support.

ADRA Education Programs
Education for all helps safeguard against chronic poverty, violence, abuse, exploitation, and even reduces vulnerability to natural disasters. The ADRA Education fund will help remove obstacles to learning by providing access to primary, secondary, and tertiary education, delivering school supplies, uniforms, and other resources, teaching adult literacy classes, and providing technical and vocational education.

ADRA Livelihood Programs
Livelihood training is a key contributor to breaking the cycle of poverty. The ADRA Livelihoods fund will help end generational poverty by empowering savings and loan groups in vulnerable communities, preparing communities for climate resiliency, training farmers to improve their methods, and empowering women to become business leaders in their communities.
ADRA Emergency Response and Preparedness
When disaster strikes, those whose lives are the most at risk are often furthest from help. Every year, ADRA responds to more than 100 emergencies around the world: earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, droughts, civil strife, and more. Contributions to the ADRA Emergency Response and Preparedness fund will help support a global network of offices and partners to quickly mobilize resources and bring relief to the hardest-hit areas.

ADRA General Fund
ADRA, the global humanitarian arm of the Seventh-day Adventist Church delivers relief and development assistance to individuals in more than 120 countries. Gifts to ADRA will provide families with emergency aid in times of crisis or natural disaster and longer-term, sustainable assistance to people battling chronic hunger, homelessness, and other life-threatening challenges, so they can live as God intended.
