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

Posted by:

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.

What’s going on with you guys?

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 ...

A Taste of Mountain Life

Posted by:

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 ...

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. Our plan and desire was to leave yesteryear, but God is directing our steps so that HIS GLORY IS MADE KNOWN. 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 ...

Who’s on the Translation Team?

Posted by:

This picture is just a small part of the translation team. I head up the project, but I would be helpless without the help of many Isnag speakers who help with various parts of the translation process. 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 ...

We’re Here! What’s it like?

Posted by:

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. Our first week, we went to town 3 times to learn how to shop. Grocery shopping is something that now we will do every 2 weeks and it is a half day ordeal. We usually go to 2 different small grocery stores, an open air market, and a butchery. It sure ...

We’ve Moved!

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!

This Monday we officially began working at our new offices. And we’re loving it. We have more room, fewer people crammed into small spaces, and it is so much quieter. So much so that one of my co-workers worked partially through lunch ...
