Where we lacked in numbers in our BibleQuest in Chino, we made up for in enthusiasm. The kids who took part were faithful in attendance and worked hard at memorizing Scripture. A group of boys challenged one another and spent time every day quizzing one another on verses. It was so great to see. They were so appreciative of the time I spent with them. It was a joy.
These boys were inseperable. They loved the songs.

Pray with me that these boys and girls will fall in love with God’s Word and plant it deep within their hearts. May it be a lamp for their feet and a light for their path.
FUMC Chino, CA
I was last with Rev. Glen Haworth about 12 years ago when he pastored FUMC Tujunga, CA, near Pasadena. Felicia and I have enjoyed our friendship with him and his family. He has such a heart for God and the churches he leads always seem to grow, spiritually and numerically.
I was glad to get the invitation from him to work with his church in Chino.

The beauty of Southern California
Greeting Cal-Pac conference
While in Southern California, In addition to ministry in two churches, I also had the privilege of addressing the Cal-Pac Renewal group and sharing a story with the Annual Conference during a morning prayer session. I told the story of Daniel which you can view here. My portion starts at about the 25 minute mark on the video.
Rev. Phillips Whang is a pastor in Burbank from South Korea. He is a delightful brother who has a deep faith and a heart for prayer, teaching the Bible, and reaching people for Christ. I greatly enjoyed hanging out with this man. He drew from the emphasis in South Korea on prayer and had his congregation commit to 6,000 minutes of prayer in preparation for my coming to his church. Did it ever pay off! Over the three days we were together, we had more than his average Sunday morning attendance in the evening services!
The sanctuary of Pittman Park UMC in Statesboro GA
Statesboro, GA, is a lovely town in the southeast corner of the state. I flew into Savannah, which is one of my favorite cities in the US. If you’ve never been there, I recommend it as a vacation destination. You can spend a good bit of time just driving around and looking at statues commemorating different aspects of Methodist history. It is really something.
The boys and girls were very excited about being a part of BibleQuest. They had a lot of fun and learned a lot as we shared time together. I never get tired of this part of ministry!
