Answer in March 2017

Posted by:

We had been given a challenging question, in January, and we thank you for thinking with us on how to answer it. Our missionary speaker had actually admitted to us that he was not sure there would be only one right answer to what God’s main theme is for His work here on earth – God is certainly more comprehensive than we can fully describe. But He gives us the privilege of still being a part of what he is ...

Of scripture checking, ammonia poisoning and things that steal your joy

Then he said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehimiah 8:10 (NKJV)

Joy for the believer is a God-given gladness found when we are in communion with Him. When our goal is to know more about Him, the outcome will be His joy in our lives.

Thank ...

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

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, ...

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 ...

Greeting!

We trust this finds you doing well and encouraged in the Lord.

A week ago today we arrived in Portland and spent our 15 hour layover visiting Lance’s cousin. It had been 10 years since we saw her last. She’s going to be 78 this year but certainly doesn’t look it. We had some great conversation in the midst of fighting jet lag. Please pray for her as she considers the message we shared with her of all Christ accomplished FOR ...

From Blow Guns to Smart Phones

The world has changed a lot in the last 33 years, and so have the Palawanos:

1983 When we first moved in among the Palawano people, many of the older men still wore g-strings; few people could read; only two of the women spoke any language but Palawano.

2012 At the dedication of the Palawano New Testament translation, one of our translation helpers was shooting video of us with her smart phone.

The Palawano New Testament is Now an Android app

For years we ...
