…a practical way for you to help Recently Panama experienced some of the heaviest rains and flooding on record. Many Kuna villages were affected, including the village where we lived and served for many years. The believers report that 41 homes suffered damage and most of the villagers’ gardens were washed away. This was the food for […]
Thank you so much for standing with us in prayer while we were in Bolivia! We had a wonderful time getting to know the missionary candidates who are preparing for service. They learned about literacy’s importance in church planting and discipleship and practiced writing primers and teaching them. After class was done we traveled to […]
We are very excited for the opportunity to train 22 Bolivian missionary candidates, begin equipping a new literacy consultant, and make some trips into tribal areas to evaluate and move literacy forward.

The country has at least 150 active volcanoes and frequent earthquakes. […]
Thanks so much for your prayers for the Kuna conference in Panama. It was a wonderful time with the pastors and wives from 49 Kuna churches. We had great times in the Word together, plus somehow even in the midst of all the crowds of people, God gave us some of the best times ever […]
About two years ago a young Kuna couple were sent out by their church to work as missionaries in an unreached village upriver. This was a complete miracle as God opened doors that were previously completely closed to the Gospel. In these first years of ministry in the village, Anelio & Silverixia have faced opposition […]
A new, short film portraying the journey that brings a Moi man of Papua New Guinea from a life dictated by fear of the spirits to faith in his Creator. This is what we are about!
Why are Joyce and I so excited about literacy? Because we believe in the power of God's Written Word to change lives!
