4 more weeks & 4 more languages! Greetings from the Philippines. We are more than half done with our around-the-world trip and praising God for His faithfulness every step of the way. We spent a month in Senegal where we held a literacy workshop for the field and then worked with 3 languages, writing literacy […]nothing?
What a team! Thank you so much for your prayers during the Literacy Workshop in Colombia. It was a completely wonderful, exhausting and profitable time! The first days were with the ten people from different countries in South America who were beginning the training for literacy ministries. It was obvious that God sent each one […]nothing?
Lots of travels already this year and we are preparing for the next trip. Let’s see how you know your world facts and if you can discern where we are going in a few weeks…nothing?
The results of the first 9 months using the newly revised literacy program have been very encouraging. Students of all ages have completed the 5 book series and are now reading in Kuna! There are Kuna Grandmas who had given up hope on ever being able to read God’s Word who are now reading and […]nothing?
Meet Eudelina. She is a lively, beautiful Kuna lady who shared the following testimony and prayer request at the conference in Panama, “I am a pastor’s wife and also a literacy student!

When asked why they […]nothing?
The church in the village were we lived is at a low point and in need of your prayers. Some of this is from pressures from the village. Some of this is from believers who need to work out differences and humbly seek God together. Although it’s been 2 years, Edelfonso is still very much […]nothing?
We have such a great respect for so many of our Kuna brothers and sisters in Panama! Anelio & Silverixia are a young couple that were sent out as missionaries by their church to a village upriver. You may remember that in 2009, while returning to the village where they minister, they lost their 3 year old son […]nothing?
The countdown has begun! Next week Joyce & I travel back “home” to Panama. So much has happened in the lives of our Kuna friends since we last saw them – the flooding and devastation, intense pressure on the believers to return to the traditional ways and forsake the Bible, a dear friend’s death, the […]nothing?
We wanted to give an update on the devastation from the flooding of many Kuna villages in Panama. A big “thank you” to all who responded in such a generous way, contributing to the flood relief fund. To give you a glimpse of the caliber of our Kuna friends, we recently heard from one of the small churches. […]nothing?
