I have retired and I live alone in a peaceful apartment in a small town named Ennis, Texas that is south of Dallas.

I have done an abundance of online research over the years. I have hundreds of curated links for Christian and secular subjects.

Also, I want to publish interviews of believers to let others gain the inspirations and insights I have gained by talking with a wide range of people over the decades.

I am in the start-up phase of an innovative online educational nonprofit with many parts and phases that God has put on my heart. The name is Our Stewardship Community.

Currently, I am enrolling much prayer so that I can gain clarity about the mission, vision, and values to shape the goals and projects.

Ready to have your understanding of the Bible greatly expanded?

Sunday afternoons and evenings is my time for rest like a nap as well as online Bible study.

I have watched many Christian video biographies then.

That is when I heard the Tozer audiobook

Today I encountered this video that opened my eyes to understand the Bible from a very different and totally Scriptural perspective.

A Bible teacher who has been teaching for many years and is the brains behind Bible Project works with his partner…

I have been enjoying this other work by Tozer - The Knowledge of the Holy

Hi John this is Biju Mathew from India. I am into TV Production and Media Training. Looking for partners to involve in raising an ARMY of Media Missionaries in India & Other countries. Since it is the end times I surely believe Media has a big role to play; moreover as Media Missionaries we are having a very big task ahead of us. If we can join together to impart the knowledge in raising Media Missionaries around the globe the evangelism will be more effective. Let us prayerfully work for it
