Just Posted! Listen to this astounding discovery of the science of DNA not only confirming the Genesis account of the Creation of Mankind, but opening new doors of understanding into how God not only created Man but REBOOTED us through Jesus Christ.
Learn about:
*Adam's mother
*Jesus' DNA
*How a human gets perfect un-fallen blood
*The weird nature of mtDNA
*a "backdoor" "failsafe" designed in to the Human Genome
 . . . and so much more.
Guaranteed to blow your mind and fill your soul with awe and worship.

New Book by Brian Hogan: Boy Centurions

  1. Boy Centurions: A Millennium of Young Lives


    I finally finished my newest work, Boy Centurions. I have been writing the eleven stories for over three years and then had to find an artist to bring the boys and their times to life. When Helen Looman turned in paintings that surpassed my expectations I realized I had zero skills in page design for childrens' literature and had to find a designer. God sent Heath Locke. 

    I am so pleased with the results. I think you will be as well.

    Boy Centurions is the stories of eleven boys living at 100 year removes from each other (but all branches on the same family tree!) Each turn of the century from the year 1000 AD to Y2K introduces a new lad and his world. Packed with historical fact that is delivered painlessly through well crafted stories of real lives, this book is a cornucopia of learning that kids won't even notice they are drinking in. After the stories and art are pages of maps, trees, glossaries, and background on the boys and the larger events of their times. 
    Here is a sample story - a two page spread in the colorful 11 x 8.5 book.

    This book is the answer to your Christmas gift dilemma!

Training those T.B.A.s

Louise’s calling to train up an army of empowered and equipped TBAs (Traditional Birth Attendants) in the developing world and among the displaced and oppressed continues to gain traction. 

As we have traveled she keeps meeting people who work on the front lines in Africa and elsewhere who are desperate for her to come and provide this training. There is a real felt need out there and the local medical resources are never going to be adequate to fill it. 

Please keep Louise in prayer as she is, in faith, putting together a trip to West Africa for early 2016 where two week-long trainings are proposed – back-to-back. She is asking God for a partner to go with her and assist.

The sales of her hand-made greeting cards are paying for 100% of this ministry’s costs.

Empty Nest Frees to Flock Together

These days, Louise and I are discovering one of the great freedoms of the “Empty Nest” – traveling and ministering as a couple. 

Brian became a “Million Miler” with United Airlines and the award miles he earns pay for Louise’s tickets. So far this year we have spent time together in South Sudan (training midwives), Dallas TX & Central Arkansas (teaching Perspectives), Amsterdam (YWAM Frontier Mission Leaders Mtg), Oklahoma (Voice of the Martyrs), Sweden (visit to Mongolia teammates and family), Hawaii (teaching at two University of the Nations schools), Orange County CA (Perspectives & biking with Louise’s sister), Malta (the GAP), Cedar Falls Iowa (church mission conf.), and we may get in a Christmas getaway. This is more time together (kid-free) on the road than we have had in total in the two decades since Mongolia. Even though most are working trips (and at least Brian’s travel is paid for), we still manage to be overwhelmed with all of the fun adventures and discoveries the Father has for us on every jaunt. God is good.

Exploring Northern Iraq

On November 12th, Brian will enter to Iraq for the first time. The trip is exploratory in nature. God has been unfolding a dream in our hearts to work together among the least, the lost, and the last, raising up leaders of disciple-making movements and equipping local midwives to save the lives of mommies and babies. 

Recently we have been stirred to see if the sprawling camps of Syrian (and other) refugees are fertile soil for what God has put into our hearts and the talents He’s entrusted to us. Just after we agreed to pursue this, God dropped a whole family of new cousins (Brian’s on the maternal side) into our laps. The Pursley’s live just 14 miles from us, all three of their kids are missionaries (Brian’s third cousins) and one goes in and out of the camps in Northern Iraq. 

Armed with inside information, Brian and a young man named Zebulun are dropping into Kurdish-held Iraq to “spy out the land”. Please pray for the perfect contacts, Persons of Peace, and a clear vision of the way forward to emerge. 

(We don’t feel like this will result in a permanent move but rather shorter stays with a goal of being catalysts for grassroots movements.)
