John Ogg’s injury and recovery

As most of you know we arrived in the USA for home assignment in July and right after landing we received the news that David’s father had fallen and broken his neck at the C-2 vertebrae. Much of our time during the first few months home was spent in and out of hospitals. Most of the doctors didn’t expect him to recover however God had other plans. He has been out of the hospital for months ...

Of scripture checking, ammonia poisoning and things that steal your joy

Then he said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehimiah 8:10 (NKJV)

Joy for the believer is a God-given gladness found when we are in communion with Him. When our goal is to know more about Him, the outcome will be His joy in our lives.

Thank ...

We’ve Moved!

Shaune showing Reid the view of downtown historic Sanford

If you’ve heard anything from New Tribes in the past couple years, you’ve probably heard of “The Move.” Several years ago we purchased a former bank building just down the street from our current home office with the plans to renovate it to meet the changing needs of our organization. After years of planning and construction (much of which was done by awesome volunteers), I’m excited to announce: The Move has happened!

We’re ...

Well that’s a loaded question!  A lot has been going on with the Mathew family in Jackson, Michigan.  And that last sentence may be an understatement. 
Life has been pretty exciting for us as of the last six months!  
We have added another life to the menagerie of noise in our house, and Jonah is doing well, he is a healthy 15 lbs and days away from 6 months old. Josh has shifteded ...

speechless by languages

Posted by:

God’s amazing wisdom and power can be seen in every area of life. Look at vastness of the universe with its stars and planets! Or the tiny perfection of a molecule. Or the intricacies of the human body.

 

 

 

 

Speechless by languages

In the same way, we have the privilege of observing God’s intelligence and design in the world’s languages. Each one is so unique but perfectly logical and following its own patterns. Even the exceptions in languages are predictable! That’s our God.

First trip ...

A Taste of Mountain Life

Greenslades, Van Wormers, and Husbands all gathered together under one roof again!

The extended Greenslade family, together again!

Greetings from Chihuahua, Mexico – where winter can’t decide if it’s coming or going, yet time keeps on rolling along!

As 2017 swings into full gear, life remains busy as ever. Daily life revolves around our ongoing study of Spanish and Mexican culture, with the end of finishing well, then moving to join our teammates working among the Nahuatl people. Amy’s full-time care of Lily means that – as expected – the time hasn’t come ...

House building progress!

Posted by:

Sorry that this post isn’t beautiful with the pictures nicely organized, but I wanted to at least let you see the progress on my house in My Village!  In the first picture, you’ll see the guy making bricks for my house.  I videoed him and timed him.  After his co-worker got the cement and sand and water and everything mixed, it took him about 45 seconds per brick.  He must have been exhausted!

 

In the second picture (at least ...

Good news/Bad news

Posted by:

(NOTE: I wrote this last Thursday, February 16th, but forgot to post it on here. Sorry!)

I have good news and bad news to share with you.  Let me start with the bad news, which will lead to the good news.
 
Bad News
The bad news is that it’s a lot more exhausting and draining and stressful to take these trips in and out of Vigueland than I was expecting.  Every week I need to leave the comforts and ease of life ...

Back in Pal

Posted by:

The longer furlough lasted, our time in Papua New Guinea seemed to fade from
reality until our four-year adventure in PNG felt like no more than a fading
dream. Then the day came to jump back into the dream.

When we returned to Papua New Guinea the fading dream did not yet turn into
reality. We lived on a New Tribes’ center for a few weeks, but while we
were now in a different country, it still felt much like home ...
