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 ...
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!

The five Isnag in this picture are only a few of the many who provide expertise in language and culture needed to make the translation clear and meaningful.
Then of course there are the other missionaries like Vicky (pictured above) and Heidi who also ...
Thanks everyone for your patience in us getting out an update. From the moment the plane wheels hit the airstrip in Madang province, we have been busy busy busy.

We usually go to 2 different small grocery stores, an open air market, and a butchery. It sure ...
New Tribes Mission’s New Home Office
It’s been a while since the move to the new offices was on the docket. Not days or weeks, but years. Yes, more years than I care to admit. But it has finally happened!
