Hey to all our co-runners in this race We all have our favorite books in the Bible. I never saw Hebrews as one of mine…One that I don’t necessarily spend lots of time in… and never thought that God would let me camp in this book for the last 4 months. Hebrews 12:1… Therefore, since […]
It’s been too long since I last wrote. So, my thoughts and memories are messy. I wanted to write shortly after Naomi left for the US in August. I had lots to say then. But I did not. Then I thought Christmas is a good time for a newsletter. Again- nothing. Now I catch myself […]

I start by saying a BIG THANK YOU to you guys for your help and supporting the Mengen Work in New Britain! Through God’s Grace He has planted His church and He is growing His church! Why are we still here? During one of our recent trips I was reminded of our calling by the following words […]

Here we are again, 50 days before we leave for our HOME in Papua New Guinea! Are we super busy, excited and a little frazzled? Yes, Yes, Yes! We have throughout the year tried to pace ourselves and make the best of each opportunity, tried to spread out our appointments so that no bottle neck happens […]
As you know we are not working among the Mengen on our own! We are part of a much larger team. It all starts back here at home and stretches all the way to where we are working. And each link is vital. Check out this blog, and see how you can be part of this chain reaching the Mengen.
Before we enter any people group, we first conduct different surveys. We thus first visit specific people groups who often invite us to come and live amongst them, to help us evaluate what the need is and to present to them the purpose of what we are wanting to come and do. Last year I […]
Heres a couple of clips, that gives you bit of an idea of what home is for us. Check out these next clips…
