What if love meant that Freedom was found in service, purpose was found in pain, strength was found in suffering, and life was found in death? Life would change! This is the story of a pastor and missionary named Mike, who thought he had all the answers and yet found himself empty, broken, depressed, and destroyed. He had dedicated his life to helping the hurting, lifting the poor, and bringing hope to the hopeless, yet here he was burned out and broken! He was finished. That was until he met a man, a man named Hal. Through translating his own life experiences Hal acquainted Mike with a love that he had never known before. He would show Mike that beauty could be found in ashes, value could be found in brokenness, and that purpose could be found in tragedy! Translating Love is about learning how to translate and understand the love of the Messiah in the good, bad, and ugly of all of our stories.
Mike has served the Body of Christ in many ways--everything from youth pastor to teaching pastor, lead pastor to a church planter, pioneer, and missionary. Mike and his family served for over nine years in Japan, with over four years in the center of Kyoto, Japan. Currently Mike is serving as a writer and speaker, and working with Hal Calisch to launch a disciple-making ministry called Translating Love.nbsp; Mike and his family currently reside in Pensacola, Florida.
