For the last few weeks I’ve been studying Hebrews. I’ve been amazed to see how many areas Hebrews dives into.

Romans 8:38,39 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
New Tribes missionaries are not religion merchants. They are carefully trained to thoroughly learn the culture and language before presenting biblical truth. When biblical truth is presented, it is done carefully using the chronological Bible teaching process, available to Westerners in the form of Firm Foundations.
