A New Twist on an Old Tradition

Posted by:

In December 2003, our first Christmas in this village, a group of carolers stopped by our house one night.  In a way, it was fun.  They sang familiar carols, but the words were in their mother tongue.  After they sang several carols, we thanked them by giving them some of Ginger’s homemade Christmas cookies and some Coke.  Before they left our home, they handed us an envelope.  We said, “thank you”, and handed them back the envelope, still empty.  They ...

In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18

 
Thankful: Here in America it is “that time of year;” our Thanksgiving holiday is only a week away! We are truly THANKFUL for each one of you who are part of our lives and the ministry to the Higaunon people in the Philippines. We cannot do what we do without you; your prayers and financial partnership are vital.

Answered prayer: In our last update ...

Everyone is talking about…

Update for the Second Week of October 2016

 

Everyone seems to be talking about who they support or who they don’t support. This week I would like to talk about a group of people that are running, but not for an office. They are busy supporting our efforts so that we can keep teaching and translating the Bible. A couple of examples are David Abbott and Stephen Narwold who both work in our Florida office. Posting my weekly updates and prayer ...

Thirty three years!

Posted by:

about 90 people attended the conference

 

MEMORY LANE: Thirty-three years ago this week we moved into the Higaunon village that we’ve called “home” in the Philippines. We joined our coworkers, Ron and Michelle Jennings, in the work where they had been for two years.The gospel had just been presented a few months before we moved there.

We’ve seen God accomplish so much in the years since:

  • The death of the first Higaunon missionary, which brought much growth to the church
  • The “sifting” of the church through persecution
  • Many baptisms
  • The discipleship ...

One of the Sweetest Prayers I’ve Ever Heard . . .

. . .  and I didn’t even hear much of it.
Tay Hesus, a year ago

Tay Hesus, a year ago

For the last several weeks, one of my daily routines is to go visit Tay Hesus.  As you know, he has stage 4 cancer and his body is losing the battle.  Over the last few weeks, he has grown weaker and weaker.  Because of Ginger’s accident, we were out of the village for over a week.  So upon our return to the village, I went down ...

A Young Begger Girl with Child

A Young Begger Girl with Child

A common occurrence as we walk downtown each day are people we meet begging us for money. Women, children, and handicapped people! Darryl usually fills his pockets with miscellaneous coins each day so he can give to those approaching us. Often they are thankful for just a few pesos. Becky, tends to take the children to the fruit stands and buys them apples or oranges as she fears that they might not be allowed to ...

What Would The Door Say?

The Door

The Crack Under the Door

The Crack Under the Door

Yesterday, we traveled three hours back to the village, unpacked, and prepared for another week of school and work.  This morning, as Stephen was outside, he noticed that something wasn’t quite right with the outside door.  Upon closer examination, he noticed that a board was out of place.  Our doors have large spaces at the bottom through which snakes and other unwanted critters could easily enter our house.  For this reason, Stephen has blocked this ...

Greetings from Oklahoma!

It’s Tuesday August 2 and we’ve been home a week already. How thankful we are for our own home! Praise God with us for a safe and successful road trip. What a wonderful time we had with family, friends and ministry partners! We had invitations to visit more of you, but we just were so tired and wanted to get home and settled. For those we didn’t see, thank you for understanding and most of all, thank you ...

Yes, God Has Wondrously Provided!

God just gave NTM Aviation an R66 helicopter for the Philippines!  You prayed, you gave, and God supplied.  On July 7, generous donors provided a highly capable R66 helicopter for the southern islands region of the Philippines.   It’s hard to believe it really happened!

Once again, God is showing His relentless pursuit of lost people by supplying a tool to take the Gospel where it has not gone before.

Accessing unreached people deep in mountainous territory of Mindanao or Palawan is tough.   ...
