"There are so many things that we take for granted here in America, that are luxuries in Africa.  We have learned what a blessing it is to have smooth roads to drive on, electricity, running water, grocery stores, and many other things.  But the greatest blessing, is to have Bibles available to everyone.  We have learned that truly the Word of God is a treasure to be studied day after day."

  "Viewing the cross of Calvary, looking upon the world's Redeemer, who for our sake became poor, that we through His poverty might be made rich, we shall feel that we are not to lay up for ourselves treasures on the earth, but to lay up treasures in the bank of heaven, which will never suspend payment nor fail. The Lord has given Jesus to our world, and the question is, What can we give back to God in gifts and offerings to show our appreciation of His love? "Freely ye have received, freely give."  {CS 287.1}

Bill is a semi-retired real estate broker.  Becky is a nurse.  They both want to serve humanity as the Lord directs.  Bill read many letters from Africa requesting Bibles and assistance for orphans.  They went to Ghana and Kenya in 2001.  The poverty was over whelming.  After returning, they established Advent Hope Ministries, Inc., a non-profit organization, to fund these projects. As the funds come in for these projects, the people are extremely grateful.  To this date, Bill & Becky have made 13 trips to Africa in an effort to assist the people physically and spiritually.
