On our blog, you will find ...

A Multitude of Hands

Posted by:

We were recently reading a book, which was explaining how to construct a simple plastic auditorium chair.  It takes hundreds of people with combined knowledge and allied skills.  No one person can do it all.

It brought to mind missions – cross cultural discipleship – it requires a team, and the purpose of missions is far grander than that of a chair.  The ultimate purpose of missions is to bring joy to all nations, tongues and tribes so the adoration and ...

A Missing Idol

As we were getting ready to leave Las Moras this last time, I took time to talk with my Nahuatl friends directly about the Scripture portions that we had been translating.  One of the last times with Queen, I asked her what she was believing.  She said, “I believe what we’ve been translating.  I believe that it is all true and that is what happened.”

Counting the Cost

by Pete Hypki

Andrew is one of the good guys. At least, out here, he is. Andrew is our neighbor to the south, and a father of 11 kids. He’s short, like most of the men out here, maybe 5’5,” and stout, with a thin graying moustache.   Two weeks after we moved into the village back in 2011, he disappeared. Rumors trickled into the community about him being seen in one village or another. They all claimed he seemed scared, ...

God School

Posted by:

My eight year old niece, whom mchild studyingy family frequently refers to as “Little Lizzie”, is having a difficult time understanding why I have to move so far away from her. Last week I was trying to explain to her the necessity of missions and why I am leaving. Thinking that I am preparing to return to school, she asked, “But when are you going to be done with God school?” As I chuckled the Lord began working in my own ...

The Training – Prayer Countdown, Day 2

Posted by:

As we prepare to start our language & culture training in just over a week (Mon, 8 Aug) we covet your prayers.  More than just a practical tool to help us get around, we believe this is a critical part of being able to minister effectively in the area God is placing us.

I’d say we all know language is important when trying to communicate (particularly in ministry), but that’s not a given in a lot of our minds as is ...

God Provides!

Posted by:

 

As I opened the truck of my car thoughts raced through my mind, “where is it? I just had it an hour ago!”. I frantically searched every corner of my car. In the front seat I found the power cord, but no computer. “Why didn’t I save my ministry presentation on another device? Lord, I don’t know how I will be able to re-create it.”   It was a week before I was scheduled to present my ministry with NTM before my church family, ...

“So what are you doing here?”

Posted by:

 

This stage of life: culture and language study

I get asked by people back home, “so what are you doing there?” and by people here, “so what are you doing here?” The answer is: culture and language study! Simply put right now my goal is to learn the culture and language of this new place where I am living: Asia Pacific. That means I spend time having language sessions with a language helper, going to class, practicing my language with neighbors, ...

tribal trip

Posted by:

Last week I mentioned that I was heading into a tribal location to help our medical staff run a vaccine clinic, but due to some inclement weather on both ends, it was delayed until the next day.

Since we knew that the weather in this location can get real bad real fast, we opted for a dawn departure to make sure we got in before the weather turned sour. This means leaving our center at 5am, driving ...
