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.

We’ve Moved!

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 ...

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.

Citizen vs Green Card

Posted by:

Our family is in a transition from a life in North America to being missionaries in a small country in South America.

In this posting Debby shares how we are seeing God at work in our lives, to bring glory to His name.

My husband and I are in what’s called “Ministry and Partnership Development” (MPD) or more commonly known ...

Baby Steps

In November and December we took our first trip to South Asia, the region with the most Unreached Peoples Groups in the world. Thousands of unreached groups call this part of the world home. We were blown away by the vastness, the tremendous need for committed Gospel ministers, the poverty, the oppressive idolatrous false religion, the powerful anti-Christian sentiment of the government, and how much we have to ...

2016 Year in review and 2017 Plans

Posted by:

2016 saw many changes to Joel’s ministry with Communications. It started out projecting to be a busy year, with more travel than previous years, as he was a part of a collaborative team of leaders’ working in several disciplines beyond Communications. But that role shifted quickly as big change came to the structure of the whole communications, development and mobilization teams. He then found himself in a much more stationary, but very much needed role of Business Administrator for the ...

TWO DITCHES

Posted by:

I have heard it said that Ministry Partnership Development (MPD) has two ditches. After five years of working through our own MPD and as a MPD training facilitator and coach, there is truth to the statement.

The first ditch is the one where the missionary views support raising as something they have to do, have to endure, have to go through to get to their “real” role. The second ditch is the one where the missionary decides that raising up a team to ...

God Plus Nothing

NTM Founder, Paul Fleming, in Malaya.

God Plus Nothing

World War II had not yet begun, but the threat of it was already being felt. And in the Malayan jungle a different kind of war was waging, and a tall, young missionary was rapidly becoming a casualty.

For three years, Paul Fleming had fought an onslaught of malaria attacks. His once strong body was weakened by the fevers, his strength slowly fading away, and it looked as though he were beaten.
