Real Servants

Posted by:

Last week, Jared and his team, as well as a few other men from different departments, had the opportunity to serve their fellow co-workers who minister in the kitchen here at NTBI-Waukesha.  Our kitchen crew likes to attend a Food Fair to get new ideas to “change it up a bit” for our students and they needed someone to “fill their shoes” while they did that.

And that is where the Maintenance Team came in.  The kitchen crew lined everything up ...

Tuesday through Thursday, they split off into three groups ...

Back to Work Again

Posted by:

Each year in March all of the NTM missionaries in our region of Papua New Guinea gather for our annual conference.  It’s always encouraging and fun, but tiring too!  We’re going to need some time to recuperate once we get back to Amdu!!  In addition to our annual conference, our to-do list for town is always long.  Our packing is now finished and, weather permitting, will be returning to our home in the Amdu tribe in the morning.

Nothing but the Dead and the Dying

Posted by:

Our villagers have told us that they are good people. Yes, they sometimes beat their kids and their spouses, but besides little things like that, they are pretty decent folks. They say they are at least not as bad as other Iski people. In fact, our villagers left their homes among their clansmen and came to live here because they were sick of the flagrant wrongdoing they were seeing back home.

They’ve told us that when they came here, they washed ...

Checking out the next step …

Posted by:

Not long ago, a lot of our students went to our Missionary Training Center in Camdenton, MO to check out the next phase of training within our mission. This was not just a “let’s go and have fun” trip but one in which they sat in on classes and workshops for credit. There was also homework involved before and after the trip. They all enjoyed the classes and the exposure to other cultures.  They came back excited and challenged.
As the eyes and hearts of ...

I ate the kids!

Posted by:

…or the less fun title, “Fun with language learning!” There’s a lot of fun phrases in Tok Pisin, one of my favorites is “Mi lusim ting ting!” Literally it means “I lost thought” and is used to say “I forgot.”

About eating the kids — no we haven’t eaten any kids, ours or anyone else’s. In Tok Pisin though, “kaikai” is not only a noun for “food,” but is also a verb for “to eat.” Aute, our language helper, asked in ...
