While I'm in Iowa ... a Few Guest Bloggers!

In a couple hours I’ll be heading back to the heartland of Iowa for a little vacation with my family. While I’m gone I’ve asked a few of my friends to do some guest blogging. I greatly respect each of these guys and their walk with the Lord. They have modeled for me a genuine love for Jesus, his church, and this world. You will be blessed and challenged by their words.

Stephen Cavness is the Pastor of Cave City Baptist Church in Cave City, Kentucky. He has been in ministry for over 10 yrs., serving in Tennessee, Missouri and Kentucky. He has written Bible Studies and articles on Christianity and Culture for numerous national publications.

Mark Wolter is my twin brother and serves as a missionary in Kyoto, Japan. His wife’s name is Maki and they have two boys, Noah and Taka. I admire Mark’s love for God’s glory and his heart to reach the Japanese people for Christ.
