He is faithful!

It’s been a while since we have posted so bear with us as this update will be longer than usual.

 

Life at the MTC has been busy to say the least. We returned home from spending Christmas in Texas with our feet running. The International Trainers Forum (ITF) happened the first of January. Representatives from various countries in which NTM has a presence, came for a week of training. The goal was to ensure that the training in these various places ...

On the Move!

“Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God,”  2 Tim. 1:8

Teacher’s Training
Praise! We had a wonderful teacher’s training conference in early February! As a result of this course, some have said that they’re going to begin teaching Chronological Bible lessons to their loved ones who have not yet believed the Truth.  PLEASE PRAY that their words turn into action!  Meanwhile, ...

T minus 2 months, and counting

Posted by:

Here is Nancy sorting through family photos etc in preparation for storage or dispersion.  We have had the experience of a “stepped” downsizing that has now brought us to the final pass through.  We are keeping the least amount possible to eliminate storage costs.   There is joy in the process of remembering each item and recalling its details but also freedom in de-cluttering our lives.

In reaching the two month point before departure, the reality of our calling is becoming clearer.  Nancy is finishing ...

The View From There: Southern Senegal and Guinea

Posted by:

Just a few more good picture Joel got for me to share with you

Got to love how people travel here

One way or another it will all fit

Fishing boat

Seeds

Pineapple

The daily chore in most villages

Bread making

Bricks for building

But the best part is always the people

Because that is why we are here

So that no matter what language people speak

Or where they live

They all might have a chance to hear

Just a little glimpse of some of the sites we saw

Until the next trip…

Snorkeling or Suffocating

Posted by:

The difference between the two is just a little plastic tube.  Recently I (Karissa) got the opportunity to go snorkeling in the ocean.  I got to see beautiful coral reefs and fish I’d only seen in aquariums.  It was an experience, but I can’t say it was a fully enjoyable one.  As I was swimming, I couldn’t shake the feeling like I might drown at any moment.  I knew that I could breathe through the snorkel, that it was my connection ...

A Marathon Trip

Posted by:

This past month marked one of the longest trips that Joel has ever taken.  What started out as 2 separate trips ended up being combined into one marathon trip.  He participated in this trip along with another couple from our leadership team.  During the trip they connected with 8 separate teams.  I was worried about the trip as it is easy to get worn down from travel and consecutive meetings, but God was really looking out for them.  They were ...

20 years in ministry

Posted by:

We are on a much overdue visit to our supporting churches in the Western and Eastern Cape.  Missionaries from NTM (New Tribes Mission/ Integral Vision) usually take 9-12 months home assignment every four years, but being “local” missionaries, we have never been able to make that work for us!  We arrived in January and will be here until mid April.

 

The aim of home assignment is…

 

…to give feed-back to supporting churches, to strengthen relationships and not only minister and encourage from ...

Opportunities Abound

Posted by:

We don’t have to look far to find people with whom we can share God’s plan of salvation. In fact, often we don’t have to look at all but He drops them so to speak in our laps.

God has had us here temporarily managing the NTM guesthouse on our island. A few weeks ago the manager’s quarters was broken into during the night and there have been two men, Melvin and Toto, hired to upgrade doors and a bay window ...

Açai, een soort bes met een sterke grondsmaak, zoete aardappels, maniok wortels, papaja, allerlei soorten bananen en nog veel meer tropisch groente en fruit staan alfabetisch op de lijst. Ik geef aan hoeveel stuks of hoeveel ...
