unwritten languages

Posted by:

Did you know that there are over 6,000 spoken languages in the world today, and only about half exist in written form? That means there are over 450 million people who still do not have a way to write their own language. This impacts the work of the Church because without writing, these groups do not have access to Bible translation in their own language! 

While in Colombia, one of teams with whom we worked is in the final stages ...

Colombia Guayaberofor another adventure!

This time we are returning to the lovely country of Colombia with its dramatic rainforests, mountains, and colorful cultures. We will need to pack warm clothes because temperatures in Bogotá will be cooler than most of the places we travel (44 – 65 F). But the delicious hot chocolate and Colombian coffee will warm us up! 

We look so forward to the fellowship with all our dear ...

back from the other side (…of the world!)

Posted by:

We had such an awesome time in Indonesia! We were able to work with 18 different language groups, encouraging tribal church leaders and missionary teams of the importance of literacy skills so that people can read the Bibles in their own languages. A great Bible translation will not have the life-changing effect that God desires, if no one can read It!

We traveled through quite a bit of the country with 28 airplane or helicopter rides. Thank you so much for your ...

Counting it ALL joy!

Posted by:

About two years ago a young Kuna couple were sent out by their church to work as missionaries in an unreached village upriver. This was a complete miracle as God opened doors that were previously completely closed to the Gospel.

In these first years of ministry in the village, Anelio & Silverixia have faced opposition and hardship. At first people didn’t want to hear God’s Book. They ridiculed, humiliated, and opposed Anelio & Silverixia in every ...

He is enough!

Posted by:

Twenty-three years ago a baby girl was born in a Kuna jungle village. That same year God sent the McDaniels family to that little village as missionaries. So little Silverixia grew up with memories of her mother hearing the Gospel message for the first time and then trusting Christ.

Recently Silverixia with her husband Anelio and their two small children were sent as missionaries to an unreached Kuna village. This is the story of their first year in the ...

  • that the studies in Ephesians and other sessions will further equip and encourage these leaders to be wise, godly men and women in their villages. Please pray that we will communicate ...

Jumping through windows God opens

After canceling our trip to Bolivia last week, we have rescheduled once again!

Ongoing peace talks have calmed the situation somewhat and the field believes there is a window of opportunity for us to get down there and give this important training in literacy. So Lord willing we will fly down later this week. 

We appreciate your prayers:  

1. for peace in Bolivia, not only for our safety, but for those living and serving in the country. The great ...
