5 Reasons for Not Posting Lately

Posted by:

It’s been a while since I’ve even laid my fingers on the keyboard to post a blog. I’ve barely had time to return emails too! I’m half torn with guilt over not keeping you all updated and half content because it means life has been full lately. Here are a few reasons for why we haven’t done much besides crank out an update maybe every 2 months:

#1 Language learning messes with our brains. By the end of the day, writing anything ...

Easter

April 2017, #94

Greetings in the name of our resurrected Lord. “April showers bring May flowers”. We’ve had lots of rain showers here for many months. According to our records we are having far more rain than usual for this time of the year. It has been raining so much that the National Highway and all the smaller roads like ours are in a state of shocking disrepair. 300 or so potholes were counted in this 8 km section of the Highland’s Highway ...

Firm Foundations

Posted by:

When ‘foundations’ come up in conversation with a New Tribes missionary, often the subject is an evangelism tool by Trevor McIlwain called Building on Firm Foundations. One of NTM’s primary church-planting methods is chronological Bible teaching – introducing people to their Creator in the Old Testament, and building a foundation for understanding Jesus’ death and resurrection before presenting the Gospel message. It’s an outline which aids the development of lesson plans for church planters worldwide, and for many a familiar ...

To Infinity and Beyond

Posted by:

To all our wonderful friends and partners in this great work,

Cheryl and I want to thank you for allowing us to travel down the road finding folks to be a part of the Lord’s work in reaching remote language and ethnic groups where the gospel of the grace of God has not been presented.  We count it a privilege to interact with folks who are interested in this work and want to invest in their lives to help them see ...

Great trip to Colorado Springs!

Posted by:

A couple of weeks ago I spent a Thursday driving 6 hours north to Colorado Springs to set up a display table and talk with high school students about New Tribes Bible Institute. It was the annual Awana Summit Conference and I wasn’t sure what to expect. You see, there would be about 30 other colleges there and I know most of the students are thinking about 4 year colleges and degrees. How many would be interested in considering a 2 year Bible school?  But I was ...

Late Update

Posted by:

I would have sent an update out on Monday, but I was distracted.

Actually, I can’t really pin the blame on the kids; there has been a lot going on. I am rushing to get as much translation checked as possible this week because one of my very good language helpers is going out to town to have her baby and it might be a while before she is able to help with translation again. There was also ...

Too Much Missionary

Posted by:

Our neck of the jungle* routinely reaches around three bazillion degrees. I’d show you a picture of our thermometer to prove it, except that it has long since melted into a puddle and oozed off of our porch. Because of this eternal heatwave, I am usually a sweaty mess by breakfast-time, so I often go about the day shirtless. It’s one of the little perks of working for an NGO in the middle of nowhere; the dress code is pretty ...

Missions Week at a Mission School

Posted by:

All of my students live in a remote country. All of my students get daily Bible instruction and have heard the Gospel. Almost all of my students are the children of missionaries, and all of them could name dozens of historical or contemporary missionaries.

And yet, we just finished our first ever Missions Week. It might just be my favorite new thing at NCA. Our staff has been planning it for months, and we have a vision to encourage a lifelong ...
