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.

Baby Steps

In November and December we took our first trip to South Asia, the region with the most Unreached Peoples Groups in the world. Thousands of unreached groups call this part of the world home. We were blown away by the vastness, the tremendous need for committed Gospel ministers, the poverty, the oppressive idolatrous false religion, the powerful anti-Christian sentiment of the government, and how much we have to ...

4 more weeks & 4 more languages!

Greetings from the Philippines. We are more than half done with our around-the-world trip and praising God for His faithfulness every step of the way.

We spent a month in Senegal where we held a literacy workshop for the field and then worked with 3 languages, writing literacy curriculum so that people would be able to learn to read the Bible translated into their languages. One of these languages was that particularly ...

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 ...

And the route takes us completely around the world! But what excites our hearts and motivates us is that God will use this time so that many, many people will be able to learn to read His Word in their own languages.

We appreciate your ...

Missionary Language Nerds, Unite!

Plow

Why did it take snow plows to get a bunch of missionaries who mostly serve in the tropics all together for a conference? Read on…

Help!

Missionaries who desire to reach an Unreached People Group face a daunting task. Not only must they live in an unfamiliar context and endure an extreme (read: hot!) climate, they must learn an unknown language and culture on their own.

They need help.

Who You Gonna Call?

That’s where guys like Bill come in. We jokingly call them “Missionary ...
