Oh…the Feet

“…How beautiful are the feet of those who bring Good News.” Romans 10:15b

I spent some time this afternoon looking out over our missionary training center campus here on Lake of the Ozarks (Missouri). Nearly 50 years ago the Lord granted NTM this land to raise up the next generation of laborers to go out in to the great harvest (Matthew 9:37a). Year after year many have prayed Matthew 9:37-38, prayed for more to laborers to come, and God has continued ...

I Will Never Forget This Lady

Posted by:

 

I look at the picture of this lady just about every morning. What a hard harsh life she has lived. The look on her face and her eyes are almost haunting.

I remember as we left her remote village thinking she will probably never hear the Gospel in her lifetime.

So sad. And there are millions of people like her. Different look, different language, different culture – but alike in that they have never heard the Gospel. Many like her live in ...

More Waiting…

Posted by:

“Waiting on God requires the willingness to bear uncertainty, to carry within oneself the unanswered question, lifting the heart to God about it whenever it intrudes upon one’s thoughts.”

― Elisabeth Elliot

Ah, yes. Waiting. Elisabeth Elliot said it well, having seen some of her deepest fears come to reality during her time on this earth. Yet she also found the secret of waiting, the key component for experiencing pain with joy, and uncertainty with hope. The secret is releasing our fears, ...

CHRISTMAS IN CAMBODIA!!

We are writing to you from Cambodia where we are enjoying the Christmas holidays with our daughter and family. Believe it or not, we are enjoying just a bit of “cold” weather….cold for Cambodia, that is. Yesterday was in the 60’s – as we shivered and enjoyed our hot cocoa, tea and/or coffee, it seemed quite December-ish!

We trust you are enjoying time with family and friends as we all remember WHY we celebrate Christmas, that the Babe in ...

Last Month in Pictures

Posted by:

As I mentioned in our update letter, we’d have a video here and quite a few pictures to share with ya’ll! The last 2 months have been a time of adjustment and learning for our family. Most of the pictures speak for themselves, so I’ll let them do what they do best!

Aute is our primary language helper. He’s an exuberant man who’s energy seems to have no bounds. A lot of language learning is simply listening to and telling, or ...

Easter

April 2017, #94

Greetings in the name of our resurrected Lord. “April showers bring May flowers”. We’ve had lots of rain showers here for many months. According to our records we are having far more rain than usual for this time of the year. It has been raining so much that the National Highway and all the smaller roads like ours are in a state of shocking disrepair. 300 or so potholes were counted in this 8 km section of the Highland’s Highway ...

Great trip to Colorado Springs!

Posted by:

A couple of weeks ago I spent a Thursday driving 6 hours north to Colorado Springs to set up a display table and talk with high school students about New Tribes Bible Institute. It was the annual Awana Summit Conference and I wasn’t sure what to expect. You see, there would be about 30 other colleges there and I know most of the students are thinking about 4 year colleges and degrees. How many would be interested in considering a 2 year Bible school?  But I was ...

Too Much Missionary

Posted by:

Our neck of the jungle* routinely reaches around three bazillion degrees. I’d show you a picture of our thermometer to prove it, except that it has long since melted into a puddle and oozed off of our porch. Because of this eternal heatwave, I am usually a sweaty mess by breakfast-time, so I often go about the day shirtless. It’s one of the little perks of working for an NGO in the middle of nowhere; the dress code is pretty ...

Road trip!

Posted by:

Three weeks, seven towns, twelve churches, and sixty-some hours of driving later…. we arrive home around midnight exhausted and drag the kids to bed. Morning comes, so we begin emptying and cleaning the van lost within stacks of suitcases, bags and coolers, dusted with layers of crumbs, popcorn and unidentifiable filth. Massive piles of laundry begin to mount with each unloaded bag, but are quickly washed and put away. Surprisingly, within two days our lives are completely back to “normal”.

As you all know ...
