In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps*. We’ve definitely lived that proverb!

Where’s Palau? We had committed to going before Donna finally looked it up on Google. It is a small island group in the South Pacific – hundreds of islands, actually. Made famous in the US by the TV show Survivor, it is a top dive destination for scuba enthusiasts.

As missionary pilots, we both flew the twin engine, high-wing, 10-seat Islander out of Koror International Airport down to the islands of Peleliu and Angaur, and sometimes further.

The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.**

** John 3:8



  1. Since early tonight when someone sent me some pics that included a reference to Donna’s military flying, I’ve been all over the web reading about your ministries and your planned activities for Him, our Lord.
    I really enjoyed looking at all the photos of your travels and particularly your new daughter.
    Please advise if you plan any speaking engagements in the CLT area. I would like to attend & hopefully say hello.
    Kind regards/John
