Jim and Sharon Fleming grew up 10,000 miles apart in homes where serving in missions was a priority. Jim was born in South Africa, where he watched his parents live out the missionary life in all its aspects. Sharon’s parents never lived outside the United States, but they faithfully supported missionaries with their prayers, letters, attendance at missionary conferences, hospitality, Christmas presents, and financial gifts. Both Jim and Sharon attribute their interest and calling to this influence in their homes.
Two years after they were married, they were commended by their home assemblies to work in Latin American cities, first moving to Lima, Peru where they lived for eight years, working in church planting, Bible teaching, counseling, and pastoring. Their first three children were born there. In 1992 they moved to Bogotá,Colombia where Jim helped begin an evening Bible school for the many assemblies there. Their fourth child was born in Bogotá.
Jim’s current ministry is that of International Coordinator for Emmaus Correspondence School, a division of ECS Ministries, where he has the goal of seeing these Bible study courses used to give Bible training to even more people around the world. In 2008 they relocated to Dubuque, Iowa from where they continue the international Emmaus correspondence school work with frequent trips overseas. Although their hearts and minds remain on the mission field, they believe that, for the time being, God’s purpose is for them to be close to parents and college-age children. Sharon has also written Around the Table.

I call her my Resplendent Bride because I have eyes and ears and for a time she even let me hold her hand.
Yet although her time among us was cut short by cancer, I still feel the afterglow of her resplendence. We were married less than three years. I buried my heart and my wedding ring in St. Louis.
We walked through the shadowlands hand-in-hand until she drew her final breath. She suffered gracefully in a world that does not know what to do with pain.
The Christian faith has always been about death and resurrection, for those twin truths were the reason the Lord Jesus sojourned among us. We have forgotten the old way—we have forgotten how to suffer and die well.
Danielle was my Resplendent Bride, and the church is Christ’s. I invite you to walk through this broken house so that you may know our small part in the divine love story.
As King David said in Psalm 27:13, “. . . I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!” and if not, I know the resurrection fast approaches.
Come, won’t you sit amongst the graves with me, and dream of Resurrection Day?
