January 1, 2010 will mark the beginning of our 12th year in ministry at the NTM USA home office. Your prayers and giving have brought us this far, and we appreciate being able to count on you in the future.
I don’t need to ask where the last 11 years went. I know. The last 11 years have been invested in the lives of men and women who are helping plant churches among the world’s unreached people. You have helped greatly expand the reach of the Gospel. Tribal men, women and children are not only on their way to Heaven because of what you’ve done – they’re also leading others to Jesus. Thank you!
Probably the biggest accomplishment of our ministry in 2009 was helping complete the short film AWAYO, which is touching hearts around the world. Yes, around the world — it’s been translated into a half-dozen languages, including Spanish, German and Mandarin Chinese, and more are in the works.
The key to completing the film came this last spring, when Ian, missionary Regina Sullivan and gi inc’s Nate Griffin hammered out the final script. And since you make our ministry possible, you made AWAYO possible. Thank you!
There’s a lot in the works in our ministry right now, but not a lot bigger than Ian’s trip to Idaho next week. NTM is taking delivery of its first Kodiak airplane, and Ian is going to take photos. We’ve had a hand in a lot of the publicity about the Kodiak, so getting the first one is a big deal. Thank you for helping make that a reality!
And the biggest thing on the horizon for 2010, at this point, is another short film. The plans are to film in the Philippines in the fall. Would you keep that trip in your prayers?
Thank you for all you do to make our ministry possible.
