75 years and Counting

Posted by:

 

Did you know Macon Celebrated his 75th Birthday last Christmas Day?

Did you know that NTM is celebrating 75 years of ministry in 2017? This year you will see some great articles in NTM@Work both from our past and for our hopes for the future of reaching more tribal peoples.

You are part of planting tribal churches that are grounded in the foundational truths of God’s Word, who are sharing within their communities and reaching out to neighboring communities.

Katy and I thank ...

Joy

Posted by:

 

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.’”) For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through ...

Three Moi Grils

Three Moi Grils

“The other day I was jogging on the airstrip, and three little girls joined me. As I was huffing and puffing to keep up, Adopo (far left) says, “Keoi (Moi language doesn’t have r’s or l’s so my name sounds a bit different here), do you realize all three of us don’t have mothers?” Me, “Oh, you’re right. Awww.”  Menadi says, “Well, actually Pideondo’s (middle) mom abandoned her, but our two moms died.” 

Me, “Oh so true, hmmmm. Do you girls have ...

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 ...

New Beginnings

A new semester begins here at NTBI in just a week. As I walk around campus I’m reminded of my first semester here in the fall of 2003. Getting a solid 2 years of Bible education under my belt right out of high school changed my life profoundly and I’m excited to be a part of discipling NTBI students in 2016. In my new capacity as online classes coordinator I’ll be enhancing the existing curriculum by adding things like online discussion forums, online homework ...

A Family Affair

Posted by:

We often share with folks that it’s our heart’s desire this work we are privileged to participate in be a family ministry (not just daddy’s job).  We wanted to give you a glimpse of one way that played out with our own immediate family and the broader family of our sending church body, impacting the extensive family that is the body of Christ…

Late October brought with it a unique opportunity as the NTM Aviation team prepared its new Kodiak aircraft ...

Above and beyond…the van need

Posted by:

 

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,”

To put it simply, God has provided the funds for us to purchase a van. We are overwhelmed and humbled watching this all take place. We are able to start looking for a reliable van that will work for our ministry due to gifts from individuals, our Paul Congregational church family having a lunch fundraiser ...

Brazil Bound: The Why

Posted by:

Earlier this year, Bethany hosted a group of former college roommates for a 20 year reunion of sorts. These ladies have spread around the world since college to as far away as the Middle-East and Brazil.

It was a sweet time to catch up and with one gal in particular, Bethany specially connected. This woman, now married and with three kids is serving at an international school in western Brazil, where NTM missionaries serve along side of other ex-pat and Brazilian missionaries. ...

Planes, trains, and mini-vans

There are times, more than I care to admit, that I stress, eat, and then pray. We’re going through one of those times right now.

Our van, which was greatly used in our ministry, died. Broken down in the middle of South Dakota, we had no other option but to get a used vehicle to finish out our journey to Idaho. We are thanking the Lord for it, but it’s not the best fit for our ministry. A van, on the ...

New Tribes Bible Institute

Posted by:

This fall I (Ric) will be volunteering my time at NTBI in Jackson, MI to help with the evangelism/outreach program and to mentor, disciple and encourage students there. I hope that my field experience and general life experience can help students hone and refine their own personal philosophy of evangelism and outreach. For example, the Apostle Paul gives us his philosophy of evangelism in 1 Corinthians 9:22: To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all ...
