saying goodbye again

Posted by David and Kim Field in Family, Ministry on May 22nd, 2014 | Discuss This Post

This whole group of students just graduated here at NTBI! We are sorry to see them go, yet happy for them for all they have learned and grown here in these 2 years. We pray they will continue walking with the Lord as they head out, and take the gospel to many who are waiting to hear it. Thank you for praying for this group of Christ followers!

our Spring Break

Posted by David and Kim Field in Ministry on May 1st, 2014 | Discuss This Post

Our family had a wonderful time visiting my sister Vicki and her hubby Jesse and their little men Owen and Liam for Spring Break! We sure loved playing with our sweet little nephews/cousins and hanging out with their awesome family for a few days!

After our visit, we drove north to visit our partnering church family in New York. We enjoyed our visit there, and meeting new people, and we are very thankful for their love of the Lord and getting His Word around the world!

We also really enjoyed driving in the beautiful Appalachian mountains! We got to drive through a massive rainstorm where the thunder was crazy loud in the mountains. We also drove through our last snow of the season, but we also had beautiful sunny days during our time out there. It was a fantastic spring break! (Check out the photo tab)

something pretty exciting!

Posted by David and Kim Field in Family, Ministry on Apr 10th, 2014 | Discuss This Post

Do you want to see something that excites us? Students who we got to know here at NTBI, have finished training, seen the Lord provide their financial partners….and are now on their way overseas!

These three families below were here at Bible School together and have partnered as a team to go to Papua New Guinea to take the gospel to one of the many people groups who are waiting for a missionary! That’s pretty exciting stuff!

They all have blogs, and write so well that you almost think you are there with them! Follow their stories and watch what God is doing through them.

There is an amazing lady here on staff, Stephanie Cateriny, who does an absolute stunning job of keeping the NTBI facebook page up. She takes seriously nice pictures, and keeps everything beautiful and current. She has others on her team like Priscilla Koehler, who help take crazy good pictures of events as they happen around here.

Our Christmas Break

Posted by David and Kim Field in Family, Just for fun on Jan 10th, 2014 | Discuss This Post

Our family stayed here at the school for Christmas and it snowed and snowed! If you know us, we LOVE the snow! Our Christmas was filled with skiing, playing games, sledding, snow forting, movies, and we even got to go away for a weekend up North to Door County!!!

It was an awesome break, and then it was back to school/work like everyone else :) Reece got 2 days off school for -45 windchill, so that was an added bonus for the boys!

Well, we are back into regular routine now and TOMORROW all the Bible School students are returning for the brand new semester!!! We are ready and excited for all the Lord has planned in this new season!

This week Reece headed off to public high school to start 9th grade, and as of today, he is still alive :) He has done super well dealing with all the stressors, and we get to hear very interesting stories at the supper table. Please pray for him in his endeavor to make a friend.

Clark also started school this week…5th grade homeschool with Mom! :) I am glad to say he hasn’t had a lot of stressors…besides the football team we made him join. He is doing super well in all his classes and we are thankful he has a couple other staff boys as friends… and he always looks forward to Reece coming home.

Semester kickoff

Steve Sanford was a great guest speaker for the semester kickoff!

It was very interesting hearing about the tribal work he and his family had been involved in. We got to hear about the whole process to finally get the gospel into the hands of that people group before the missionary team had to evacuate by the order of government.

His stories were good reminders of why we are here at Bible School training these young people before they head out to do the same stuff Steve was talking about.

Today we have been seeing MANY students coming back! When we see license plates from AZ,WA,FL …out our kitchen window, we know the new year has begun!

Tomorrow is the kickoff, starting with a great guest speaker!

I didn’t hear the final count for the Freshman class yet, but last I heard it was in the high 80′s!!! That is super exciting to think about when we consider all the learning, and growing in these next 2 years! How many of these students will be directly involved in getting the gospel out to another people group who hasn’t heard yet? THAT is something to be excited about!

We were very blessed to be able to spend some time in Canada in the town where our sending church is! We were given the gift of staying in our pastor’s house as their family went on vacation, and we are SO thankful for them allowing us to use their home! What a blessing!

We were able to spend time visiting with our friends, partners and family and we had such a super time!! One of the hi-lights was the Field family gathering! This was the first time in 12 years we had all been together, and the celebration was Dave’s parent’s 40th anniversary! The Fields spent the whole weekend together visiting, eating, playing and having a total blast together making super memories! (check out the photos on the photo tab.)

Family camping trip

Our family went on a 10 day camping trip in beautiful Colorado! We hiked to some very remote places high in the mountains where we just soaked in God’s amazing creation. Cameras can’t do it justice, so we just tried to stare at it all and stick it in our memories. We camped at high elevation, so we got snowed on once, but we prefer cooler weather, so we totally loved it all!! (check out the pictures on the photo tab)

Once a year the Waukesha NTBI students take on the Jackson NTBI students for all-day sports. Its a matter of opinion, but I think both teams are very competitive and equal. :)

This is Reece. Homeschool is awesome. I’m really loving the desicsion we made about staying home this year for school! I’m also loving the time we get with the students. Going out to parks, watching movies, and hanging out  is great fun for us.We love spending time with our two dorm rooms we adopted!

My parents signed me up for a middle school home group with our church. Parents open their homes for teens all over the community to come and have fun once a week. The first meeting is tomorrow night and I’m looking forward to it! I have to get back to history class. I’ll write some other time soon.

Hearing the gospel for the first time

Posted by David and Kim Field in Ministry on Oct 1st, 2012 | Discuss This Post

The people in the BIEM people group in Papua New Guinea heard the gospel for the first time this week! Below is the story of that day from the missionary team.

**News from Biem **

Dear Friends & Family,                It’s 7:30PM here and we just got back from the Teaching House, heads spinning, and hearts floating high. We began today’s lesson an hour earlier (4PM), and started by acting out the crucifixion. From there we taught: Why did Jesus have to die? What did that mean for us? Why had God the Father forsaken Him? What did He mean “it is finished”? What did the torn curtain mean? How in the world did the thief get saved? From there we acted out the resurrection and then taught on the significance of it. Finally the ascension and some more teaching.

Obviously the reactions were as varied as the individuals that were in attendance, but the neat thing was to see the joy that many of these men & women wore on their faces. For the ones that have been faithfully coming and listening to this talk…wow, it was the culmination of hope for them! They finally know with clarity, the road that God made for them…Jesus Christ the Road Man…didn’t just show or make a road…He IS the Road!

Here are some of the things that a few of the folks said:

“Brandon, it’s so clear now. I used to go to church, give money, and do good. All those things I thought would make me clean in God’s eyes. But when I slept at night, truly I had no idea where I would go when I die. But now I know! Brandon, I’m not scared of dying anymore. Now we know why Gail (our co-worker who was diagnosed with severe cancer) wasn’t afraid of it either.”

Another fella just kept saying “Really?! Really!?” Everyone beside the guy kept looking at him like he was nuts, but he was just beside himself with amazement at what Jesus had completed on his behalf.

One friend said, “I’ve been listening to the whole teaching and I understand this. I believe this. I know Jesus ONLY has straightened my sin pay. Now I understand this and the first thing I’m going to do is tell me family. They need to hear this.”

Another said, “We’ve talked about it already. We’re going to be going to the next islands to share this talk (15 miles – open ocean). We’ll row in our canoes if we have to. They need to hear. They don’t understand this talk at all. None of us did. We’ve been lied to this whole time. Man, those folks who lied to us are going to carry BIG PAY for the behavior. But us, we need to get this talk to others now.”

These are just some preliminary thoughts, words that have come out in the first hours. Obviously, as with any birth, the work has really only started. But we wanted to share with you as soon as we could so that you can glorify God with us. No numbers or anything like that, but today the Lord has definitely reaped a harvest for Himself on this little volcano in the Pacific.

…..Here is some from their latest update:

A young guy sat next to me, with a biggest smile on his face.  He didn’t say anything so I asked him, “what’s on your mind?”  He said, “Wayne, I had a big question yesterday.  Why didn’t God the Father help Jesus on the cross?  I thought about it all night and I didn’t know.  But after today’s lesson, I don’t have any more questions.  I got it.  I understand it.  I am just going to sit here and be happy.“  He smiled on…

And one young Biem man has a message for YOU.  Yes, YOU.  He said, “I know I should thank God for you guys but I want to thank all three of your families for bring God’s talk here.” Then we told him that, no, it’s not just the three families.  There are literally thousands of people praying for you guys to understand God’s talk all over the world.  He then said, “Ok, then you go and tell them, ALL OF THEM, THANK YOU.  God’s talk has come to our island.  THANK THEM for praying and sending you guys here.” This young man, along with a few others, began to discuss how they need to take this talk to other islands and even different language groups in Papua New Guinea.  I shook my head and just marveled at the Holy Spirit.  He is at work already!  It took me how many years after salvation to even wrap my head around the need for “missions” but but these guys are talking about it minutes after they trusted in Jesus!  At that moment, I was no longer “the missionary” but a fellow brother in Christ, learning from our Biem brothers in Christ.

Guys, again, this is just the beginning and there is much growing ahead for our Biem believers.  Persecutions will come (and have come already).  Many people are still against this talk.  But as John 1:5 says, “The light shines in the darkness and darkness can never extinguish it.“  The light broke through and it is here to stay.

More to come but want to get this out to you guys first…

Because of the Road Man,

The Biem team

The student leaders arrived a week before the rest of the students to begin their leadership training time. They have classes and team building activities among other fun things, but one of the highlights is the 3 day camping trip.

Fortunately for us, the staff is also invited, and we have found these 3 days to boost us far ahead in getting to know that group of students better! There is something about living outdoors together that helps you really get to know each other!

Yes, the Fall semester at NTBI started back in mid August. :) I’m wanting to catch up with the blog so I don’t feel behind or overwhelmed.

The Freshman class is huge! 103 students came to join us and the dorms are very full. It always feels like an adventure as the students start pouring in, because when these two years are over, the students grow in the Lord and change in amazing ways. It is awesome to see the amazing work the Lord does in such a short time!!
