We traveled June 30th to our home area for all of July and August and it’s good to be back! Our goal is to develop and increase our support team, not only in the St. Louis metro area, but in mid-Missouri and the Kansas City Metro area as well. We’d appreciate your continued prayers for us- since we’ve seen financial challenges hit churches and individuals alike. We are looking to see an increase our support level by at least $1000/month before we return to our Home Office ministries in Sanford, FL. If you feel you would want to become one of our Support Team partners in this challenging ministry of assisting those planting churches among unreached people groups, we have the “GIVE” link at the top of this page that will redirect you to a secure location where you have many options available for financially becoming a member of our support team.
We are looking for any opportunities to present the exciting and challenging work of New Tribes Mission- one that focuses on actually learning firsthand the unwritten language of an unreached people group, studying their culture and worldview (what makes them “tick”), and finally presenting spiritual truth in a chronological method. This method, Building On a Firm Foundation, was developed by New Tribes Mission personnel, and has been adopted in many forms and fashions by missions groups, churches and individuals around the world.
The trip up from Florida was uneventful, but right off the bat we (at least Tom did) noticed that weather was more intense than in Central Florida. And I’m talking HUMIDITY! Sure, we have plenty of it to go around in Florida, but we also get the beautiful, freshening breezes off the ocean (even though we are 25 miles inland) in the late afternoon and evening. Reminds us of our time in Guinea, West Africa.
