The official opening of the Word for the Way blog was December 30, 2018. Since that time we’ve gained 15 followers. I’m so excited to have reached this mile-marker. I can hardly wait until we reach 25, then 50, then 100, then…. Who knows?
I want to extend to each of my followers a heartfelt thanks for joining me. And thank you for your kind words of encouragment. You’re all awesome! I hope that the Word for the Way blog continues to minister in your life for years to come.
I’d also like to extend an invitation to family, friends, and those who I do not yet know (potential new friends) to join our ever increasing group of followers. The Word of God that you find here will be a blessing in your lives.
As the days, weeks, and months go by, Word for the Way continues its daily mission of sharing God’s Word as a means of strengthening and encouraging people as they travel through life. I sincerely appreciate your prayers as this ministry continues to grow and move forward for the cause of Christ.
Good news!! I’ve just uploaded some of the photos I took during my missions trips to the African nation of Malawi. More pictures will be added as we go along. Looking at these brings back many wonderful memories. Enjoy!

At least half a million survivors of a powerful cyclone in southeast Africa are at risk of fatal diseases, from cholera and dysentery to malaria, aid workers warned on Thursday, as rescue teams struggled to reach flood-hit communities.
