Commentary on the Commentaries on Life

Posted by:

 

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”

But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets. No one can know a person’s thoughts except that person’s own spirit, and no one can know God’s thoughts except God’s own Spirit. And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so ...

Getting our Noses Back to the Grind Stone

Posted by:

It’s February and for Isnag farmers, that means using my grinder to get their machetes ready for field work. After church this morning the men kept the grinder going for more than an hour.

For us, getting back to the grind means getting back into Bible translation. Thank you for praying for our consultant, JJ’s, trip. He arrived on schedule from Italy. Last week we were able to work through 15 chapters of Genesis. We are thankful ...

Do You Like Being A Missionary

Posted by:

It was one of those days February 12th 2017.  I was following a young missionary family around in a village as they were learning language and culture. It impressed me how their older son less than five year old shown in the photo can speak German, English and is very interested in getting the trade language in the local village. Walking behind the family I could hear the conversation of this young boy with a fellow friend his ...

It has been a blessing for Linn to work with homeschool moms in providing them with the resources they need for teaching their kids. Ned is busy preparing for a translation check for a people group that has just been presented with the Gospel for the first time. Please be praying for them as they process what they have learned and make ...

Leaving!

Posted by:

“Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is the whole duty of man.” -Ecclesiastes 12:13
The Spirit has laid that verse on my heart recently and I wished to share it. Granted, that verse has nothing to do with our news, or does it? I’ll let you answer that question for yourselves.

Our passports returned in good order with the entry visa stamped in each of them. With that part completed, we were able to purchase plane tickets. We fly out ...

quieter community

Posted by:

Things are lot quieter around here than the last time I wrote. I’ve gone back to part time in the clinic, which has given me a lot more free -time to build up some of those relationships that fell by the wayside as I inched my way towards burnout. I’ve joined a ladies Bible study, and have regular coffee dates with girlfriends who are teaching me the beauty of walking through seasons together, and always reminding me of truth. Sometimes ...

One “Little” Step Closer

Posted by:

You would think that moving to the other side of the globe would be a huge step for us. In some ways it is. After 4 years of praying, planning, training, etc, it’s awesome to see how God has worked in us and through us and in you and through you to see us finally get to Papua New Guinea to begin our ministry here. In many ways we can look at this and see it as a small step ...

Lots of villages

Posted by:

Isn’t God amazing sometimes? Or, more accurately, isn’t God’s constant amazing-ness visible to us sometimes? It took me about a year to be able to visit the 19-20 main Vigué villages. But just now, in a period of only 10 days, I was able to stop and at least greet someone in 9 of those villages! Besides that, I was also able to greet people from at least 3 other villages, though I didn’t see them ...

Is It Spring?

Posted by:

Is it Spring?  Not according to the date on the calendar or the cold weather here in Wisconsin but according to our Course Schedule Calendar … yes, it is Spring … the Spring semester here at NTBI has already begun and as I write this I realize that we are already into the second block of classes.

Our registrar is so faithful in getting the course notes printed for all our classes and then it is up to us office ladies to punch and ...
