I grew up in California and met my British born wife Janet while we were both doing a college study-abroad time in Germany. The Lord graciously led me to repentance and faith in Christ in 1986.

And he was saying to them all, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me.

For what is a man profited if he gains the whole world, and loses or forfeits himself?"
