Past News and Updates

A Jump Start to the New Year We had just gone to bed; it was 10:30 p.m. (unusually early for us). My cell phone rang loudly, causing me to jump a bit. Looking at caller i.d., I saw it was a Missouri number unfamiliar to me. “Probably a solicitation call,” I figured. I let it go to voicemail. Two minutes later, a message came through. I decided I’d better listen…Keep Reading

Tozour Times – A look back at 2017

Why Birds Fly South in Winter As I write this newsletter, we have been in Florida for a week and freezing temperatures have even invaded the Deep South. We often say, “Even birds have enough sense to go south for winter.” Frozen water hoses and cracked tanks have taught us to head to the lowest portion of the country when temps go low. Travels this year took us to eighteen…Keep Reading

The Times They Are a Changin’

It has been way too long since I made any updates to our website, and the times we’re living in are changing rapidly. It seems like I’m running to catch up to a train that is already pulling out of the station! While the world in which we live is marked by upheaval and tragedy (the ISIS crisis, the upcoming presidential nominations, the question as to which NFL team will…Keep Reading

Tozour Times – A look back at 2015

Oh, the Places We’ve Been The older I grow, the faster time goes. And it seems that we travel at a torrid pace as if trying to keep up with time itself! It was over twenty-one years ago that we entered into full-time evangelism, and how we have cherished the ministry our Father has entrusted to us. The Dr. Seuss poem says, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” We look back…Keep Reading

The Tozour Times – News from 2014

Winter Woes & Wonders As we write a newsletter looking back on the year that was, we are in the grips of some bitter cold here in the Midwest (temps in the 20’s and teens, snow on the way). It reminds us of the way we started 2014. I began the year at a prayer advance in Alabama hosted by Evangelist Tom Palmer. Then Michael and I flew to Erie,…Keep Reading

Looking Ahead with Expectancy (and Some Reserve)

Briana will graduate in the spring and head off to college next fall, the Lord willing. She has been actively involved in our children’s ministry, and she is our firstborn child: need I say that she will be dearly missed! I’ve asked her to sum up her senior year so far and to talk about her plans for the future. Here is her update: “I never would have thought that…Keep Reading

Looking Up from Troubles

While the Lord promised to be with us in troubles, He never said He would keep us from troubles. In Job, we read that “man is born up to trouble, as the sparks fly upward.” (Job 5:7) Peter wrote, “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s…Keep Reading

Looking Back on Our Year

Twenty years have now passed since we entered into itinerant evangelism. Our oldest child Briana, a senior in high school, has matured into a sweet young woman. Heather (14) is a tremendous helper at home and has grown to 6’1”! Our little Lanae (3), is a delight to us all (most of the time!☺). Michael and Candace have now traveled with us for nine years, and we wouldn’t know what…Keep Reading
