Pictures of the Month

First off a big thanks to all the people who made this Fishing Raffle such a great success! We have a winner –Tim Loughrin from Manitoba! Good luck fishing!  Thanks to all donors.  Thanks to Larry and Karlee Reimer from Manitoba who did most of the work.  Most of all thanks to Knife Lake Lodge who donated this tremendous $12,000 trip. Secondly, a good farewell to our long time partner in Mike Lungu. Mike wants to build his business for himself. We will miss him terribly, but feel confident he is doing what is best for him at this time.  Once he has a booming ...

Training Trainers

Church Planting eXperience (CPX) has worked it’s magic again. 30 souls came from all over – Malawi, Zimbabwe, South Africa, USA and Zambia – to teach and to learn practical tools for catalyzing Jesus movements.  Some were illiterate village leaders, some women school teachers, some young Zambian or American interns, and some pastors of established churches – but all hungry for truth and growth. We lived and learned and worshiped together for 21 days, and we leave today with new paradigms, new tools, and new ways of seeing the scriptures and ministry. We are not ...

First Day in the Village

8 AM - The rest of the team had preceded me to the village as I had to stay in town to catch up on some urgent emails and issues with reconnecting our phones and such…. So I got up and had my devotions, forgot breakfast, and was off to deliver parts to fix our Nissan 4x4 truck, etc. 9 AM - I was waiting at Team House in town for the taxi to come and take me to village where I found that the electricity was off there as well as the water. It was rather hot and humid this morning. Stanley is there and I talk with him for 2 hours while waiting. Stanley has been ...

WHEN EVERYTHING FALLS APART…

Heb 11:9 > By faith (Abraham) lived as a foreigner a in the promised land as though it were a foreign country, living in tents…”  The call was clear – incontrovertible after so many fleeces and miraculous confirmations – “Go! Sell all and trust me. I have given you a land flowing with milk and honey…” So Abraham went. As have so many others thru the ages – including Dan and Regina, when they heard the same urgent Command. There were so many Promises and Visions of how things would be, what we would do, what God would do. We came with enthusiasm, ...

Looking over the Garden

Dear Friends and Partners of Love’s Door for All Nations, Thank you all for your partnership in our lives and in our Garden. When God began speaking to Regina and me (2006) about leaving our comfy nest for an unknown inheritance. He spoke so loud and clear and with so many convincing proofs that He would be our Guide, our Sustainer, and our Provider. We left our Known for a deep unknown – when we quit our jobs and dispersed our goods we still had no assurance of any supporters or even of where we would go or what we would do – only a vague leading. But we Knew ...

Mind & Body Training Center

Love’s Door for All Nations works in Southern and Northern Zambia, among the most neglected and poor villages. In these areas 80% of the people are illiterate. We have been living among these people for 6 years and know of only a handful who have ever gone thru 12th grade. Most drop out before 7th grade and have not learned to read – some don’t even know the alphabet! Another great void in these areas is lack of skills. Very few of these village people have a marketable skill, and so they have very little industry other than finding enough fish and food for the ...

I Love Engineers!

I remember one mission trip to Mexico – broken down on the side of the road, not 4 hours into the 1000-mile trip in “The Faith Builder” – our church’s beater bus. Russ, the lone engineer on the bus, came alive! With all the perkiness and enthusiasm of a kid who just found a bag of candy, Russ scooted under that bus, chattering all the way about possible solutions to our predicament. His joy in life is having a huge problem and finding the solution. He’s an engineer! Engineers go crazy in Africa. Their tails are wagging before they get off the plane – so ...

Fellowship along the Zambezi River

One day we were invited to attend a bible study that one of the Zambian team members from Love’s Door hosts every Thursday afternoon in the village of Siemate. I had the honor of attending a couple times during my visit because my good friend Mama Hildah lives in that village. I loved getting extra time to fellowship with her and meet her friends and family that are a part of the study. It’s a quaint group of about ten villagers sitting under the big tree in the middle of their village. A couple boys sitting on rocks, some women on the ground with their babies ...

JULY UPDATE

July started out with a BANG! Dan got hit by the worst case of Veritgo ever and wound up Thursday thru Sunday in the hospital. And since then he has been afflicted with continual imbalance and noise and movement sensitivity so he has basically stayed for three weeks in his house. Now he is going to the village a bit and walking to some degree – sometimes with a stick to keep balance. He and Regina will be returning to the States in a few days for more medical treatment. They also plan on spending a number of months recruiting and financial partner building as well as ...

Progress in action…

Dan and Owen (our Operations Manager) traveled 16 hours by car to Luanshya Base of Love’s Door. Here is the report:   The ministry in Luanshya continues to flourish, especially since the Twashuka Community Center was dedicated on my last visit in Feb. Although the building is not yet complete, it has become the center of activity for the ministry and the village. The building was conceptualized from the beginning as a community project, and it has become so. Although we have paid for the major construction phases of the building from the generous donation of ...
