In many African cultures, women are still deeply embedded in a patriarchal society that demands submission, compliance, and an inherent lack of sovereignty. Many women are uneducated and rely fully on their fathers or husbands to operate within the world. This has created a systemic issue where a woman’s value is tied indiscriminately to their…

In the United States, we can sometimes take education for granted. Public schools offer a learning environment for everyone to learn reading, writing, and arithmetic. Traditional schooling has certainly gone through some massive transitions this year – but many have still had some form of access to education. Sadly, this isn’t the case across the…

Back in October, I published an article in Mission Dei Journal. I’m just not getting an opportunity to let you know about it. The title of the article is “From One Honor-Shame Culture to Another: A Proposal for Training Chinese Missionaries to Serve in Muslim Contexts.” This was probably the most challenging article/book chapter I’ve ever…

This past year was hard for the entire world, but Lebanon seemed to have one significant obstacle after another. There was the economic collapse, followed by COVID, followed by the Beirut explosion, followed by the…
