In October, Julie and I are going to Thailand. We’d appreciate your prayers, and you have other opportunities to take part as well.
Why we’re going
More than 100 people groups are asking New Tribes Mission to bring God’s Word to them. Just one of them consists of 13 million people with no access to a clear presentation of the Gospel.
My ministry is to help people take part, so those 100-plus people groups – those millions of men, women and children living in darkness and fear – can know Jesus. My work is presenting opportunities in a way that gets people in the USA involved … which glorifies God, helps tribal people and blesses people here.
How many people do you think are aware of opportunities like this? Not enough, I’d say.
I can do much of my work from an office in Florida.
But I also need to get out where the stories are, conducting interviews, gathering video, taking photos. I need someone to assist me, and there’s no better person to do that than my wife, who has been by my side for 30 years and with me in ministry for a dozen years. And we need photo and video equipment to bring stories home.
What we’ll be doing
We’ll conduct brief video interviews. Missionaries will answer questions like, “What fear almost kept you from being a missionary?” We’ll ask tribal believers questions like, “How has your life changed since you met Jesus?”
We’ll get photos from tribal settings. Our team has few photos from Thailand, let alone photos suitable for posters and displays. Photos bring stories to life.
And we’ll gather stories that could find their way into NTM’s magazine, the new NTM website (coming soon!), short films, radio spots, podcasts and more.
How you can take part

A gift toward our trip would be very timely. We’ve cut the estimated costs of our trip from $9,195 to $8,000. All but half of that is already taken care of. Our main need today is equipment, which is an investment in the future. We’ll be traveling more – our youngest child graduates from high school next spring – and we’d like to purchase equipment that will meet our needs for this trip and others for at least two or three years.
You can also share opportunities to pray and give with others. Find the latest info about our trip, ways to give, and resources to share >>
