The following are the details of the position:
IT Department Manila – Computer Network and Systems Administrator

As for ourselves, we are still managing the NTM guest house here on our island. At the same time Gene is making pretty good progress on translating Nehemiah and Carol has been editing the recording of the lowland dialect of our New Testament which is being recorded by a Manubu’ Bible teacher in that dialect.
Weather permitting, three of out Manubu’ translation helpers will be flying out from our village next week (in the helicopter, none have wings) so Gene can do a comprehension check with them of some chapters of Nehemiah.
It is uncertain at this point how much longer we will be managing the guest house. It could be just through April or it could be longer.
We recently went out to lunch at a local restaurant with another New Tribes couple. Gene took the this picture of another diner. Still don’t understand how he ate with his obvious disability.
