about page, fan flam

Hi this is Ruddy,

Thank you for visiting my site  FAN THE FLAME! Glad you’re here.    First of all,  as missionaries and pastors,  my wife and I  would like to thank our partners and friends in the ministry for your faithfulness and generosity  ♥️.   You’ve been a great support and encouragement!

We’d like to dedicate these blogs & articles to you, to our fellow ministry workers and also to those who find encouragement, blessings, and hope through this site.  Lot’s of excuses for us to join missions, to obey God, even to write blogs … in the end, this is our tribute to God and to all His mighty man & woman around the world.


FAN THE FLAME—  to ignite the fire within, fan the flame of your God-given gifts, to discover His purpose and live according to his will.   To be a warrior not a worrier,  to turn our trials into triumph,  to walk in victory by His Spirit and to make our story for His glory.    Striving to be a winner not a whiner despite the many ups and downs in our life.   Trying to be joyful, prayerful and grateful in all things by His grace … I Thess 5:16-18
