Here is a picture of my father Fred E. Waggoner. He joined the US Navy in 1943 and served in the Pacific theater, taking part in many battles, including Leyte Gulf, Saipan, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa.

Dad was proud of his service to our nation and I am proud to be his son. He has gone onto be with The Lord but his legacy lives on in the many lives that he influenced for Christ in his 40 years in the ministry.



Remembering our Veterans

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5–6, NKJV

When Mitchell Paige left home to walk the two–hundred miles to the nearest Marine recruiting station in 1936, his mother packed him a lunch in which she included the note: “Trust in the Lord, son, and He will guide you always.” He said those words remained forever in his mind, and whenever fear would overtake him, he was comforted by them.

Paige said, “I will never forget sitting in a foxhole, bloody, burned, and injured the morning after our all–night, fierce, hand–to–hand battle against an overwhelming Japanese force on Guadalcanal. I was alone except for hundreds of dead bodies of the enemy surrounding me. I emptied my pack looking for something to stop the bleeding from a bayonet wound and out fell my small Bible. Picking it up in my dirty, bloody hands, I could scarcely believe it when providentially it opened at Proverbs 3 and there were my mother’s words, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.”

Mitchell was a recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s most prestigious military honor, for his actions at the Battle of Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands. He was a true servant and patriot of America … and America is proud to have had hundreds of thousands of valiant solders cut from the same cloth.

An American boy – a toddler – suffers in prison as his mother is shackled to her cell on death row. This 20-month-old boy – a U.S. citizen – is sick from the prison conditions.

Last week, Meriam Ibrahim, a pregnant Christian woman, was sentenced to hang in Sudan for her faith.

After she has her baby, who will be a U.S. citizen, she will be tortured – beaten with 100 lashes for marrying an American Christian. Then she will be hung for being a Christian.

If we do nothing, she will die. Her American kids will be turned over to radical Islamists.

At the ACLJ, we’re fully engaged at the U.N., in Washington, and across the globe for their freedom.

In 24 hours, 100,000 signed our petition to free Meriam and her American son. Pressure and prayer are the only things that will keep her alive. Be heard.
Sign the Petition at our Be Heard Project: Save Meriam Today.

P.S. We’ve just learned American Pastor Saeed has been beaten and forcibly returned to prison in Iran. Please pray as we fight for his freedom.

Developing Leaders in Uganda and Ghana – Your help needed!

Thirty days from now, Luke Kuepfer and I will be departing for Uganda and Ghana to train leaders to Lead Like Jesus and we need your help. From June 13th-July 6th, we will be starting the second year of a four-year process to develop and equip leaders who in turn will develop other leaders – just like Jesus did!

This process is designed to help pastors and other Christian leaders take new (novice) leaders and through yearly training sessions, quarterly coaching and mentoring, and practical application, equip them to become fully developed Master/Teacher leaders who will then be able to train and develop others.

In 2013, Luke and I had the privilege of training 35 leaders from these two countries in the first phase (year) of our process. This year, we will return to train them in the second phase on deeper leadership subjects and to coach them as they begin to train others – approximately 100 new leaders – in the first phase/year. By having each new leader commit to training and developing three (3) new leaders, over a four year period we will train over 900 leaders who understand what it means to Lead Like Jesus. In following this process, the potential exists for an exponential growth in the number of leaders that can be used to reach many, many more people for Christ. We believe that we are launching a movement that has the potential to raise up servant leaders all across the continent of Africa.

For us to accomplish what God has laid before us, we need your help. First, we need your prayers. Not just for Luke and I, but also for the men and women who will be attending the training; many of whom must travel great distances and at their own expense. We are also in need of your financial support to help us cover our expenses for travel, lodging, and the cost of the materials that we will be providing to help these leaders learn and to teach others.

Any amount that you chose to give, whether it is $5, $10, $25, $100 or more, will be greatly appreciated. We have arranged with Lead Like Jesus, a 501(c)3 non-profit ministry, a very convenient and tax-deductable way for you to donate. You can go to, enter the amount you wish to give, click on the “Uganda 2014 Donation” button, hit the “submit” button, then enter “Luke and Fred” in the Sponsored Attendee space, fill in your billing/payment information, and finally click on the “Place Order” button. You will immediately receive a receipt for your donation.

Thank you in advance for your prayers and financial support. God is using Lead Like Jesus to make a Kingdom difference in Uganda, Ghana, and over 40 countries around the world and we are grateful for the opportunity to be part of this great ministry.

During our trip, I will be posting regular updates and pictures on my personal blog at You can receive these updates directly to your email account by clicking on the “Follow” button and entering your email address.

Thanks and may God bless you!
