John Ogg’s injury and recovery

As most of you know we arrived in the USA for home assignment in July and right after landing we received the news that David’s father had fallen and broken his neck at the C-2 vertebrae. Much of our time during the first few months home was spent in and out of hospitals. Most of the doctors didn’t expect him to recover however God had other plans. He has been out of the hospital for months ...

We’ve Moved!

Shaune showing Reid the view of downtown historic Sanford

If you’ve heard anything from New Tribes in the past couple years, you’ve probably heard of “The Move.” Several years ago we purchased a former bank building just down the street from our current home office with the plans to renovate it to meet the changing needs of our organization. After years of planning and construction (much of which was done by awesome volunteers), I’m excited to announce: The Move has happened!

We’re ...

speechless by languages

Posted by:

God’s amazing wisdom and power can be seen in every area of life. Look at vastness of the universe with its stars and planets! Or the tiny perfection of a molecule. Or the intricacies of the human body.

 

 

 

 

Speechless by languages

In the same way, we have the privilege of observing God’s intelligence and design in the world’s languages. Each one is so unique but perfectly logical and following its own patterns. Even the exceptions in languages are predictable! That’s our God.

A Taste of Mountain Life

Greenslades, Van Wormers, and Husbands all gathered together under one roof again!

The extended Greenslade family, together again!

Greetings from Chihuahua, Mexico – where winter can’t decide if it’s coming or going, yet time keeps on rolling along!

As 2017 swings into full gear, life remains busy as ever. Daily life revolves around our ongoing study of Spanish and Mexican culture, with the end of finishing well, then moving to join our teammates working among the Nahuatl people. Amy’s full-time care of Lily means that – as expected – the time hasn’t come ...

We’re Here! What’s it like?

Posted by:

Thanks everyone for your patience in us getting out an update. From the moment the plane wheels hit the airstrip in Madang province, we have been busy busy busy. Our first week, we went to town 3 times to learn how to shop. Grocery shopping is something that now we will do every 2 weeks and it is a half day ordeal. We usually go to 2 different small grocery stores, an open air market, and a butchery. It sure ...

2016 Year in review and 2017 Plans

Posted by:

2016 saw many changes to Joel’s ministry with Communications. It started out projecting to be a busy year, with more travel than previous years, as he was a part of a collaborative team of leaders’ working in several disciplines beyond Communications. But that role shifted quickly as big change came to the structure of the whole communications, development and mobilization teams. He then found himself in a much more stationary, but very much needed role of Business Administrator for the ...

New Tribes Mission’s New Home Office

It’s been a while since the move to the new offices was on the docket. Not days or weeks, but years. Yes, more years than I care to admit. But it has finally happened!

This Monday we officially began working at our new offices. And we’re loving it. We have more room, fewer people crammed into small spaces, and it is so much quieter. So much so that one of my co-workers worked partially through lunch ...

Walking Barefoot Down the Mountain

Posted by:

It’s Monday at about 9:30 am and I am sitting in the middle of a pile of clothes and shoes and curtains and medicines and toys and books (though not many books- thank you Kindle!) and many other random items that we are trying to take back with us to PNG. My 5th grader approaches me with a math question. Because like a masochistic lunatic, I am simultaneously trying to home school and pack. I gave a quick glance and ...

Pray for Laborers

Posted by:

How has the first month and a half of 2017 been for you?  We’d love to know how we can pray for you this year.  Drop us a line if you have a minute.

This month we consultants (Jennifer and our coworker Greg) got to give a stage 3 language evaluation.  Since our new families usually only spend their first year of language and culture study here before moving on to their future region of service, we normally only deal with ...
