We wanted to share with you Savannah’s first prayer letter that tells her plans to return to PNG for one year. We are excited that she will be filling a teacher need plus be a “mom” to Christina at boarding school! Let us know or Savannah if you would like to be added to her email list for updates over the next year. She is in the process of getting the support needed for the year of teaching.
Thanks! Ned & Linn

Growing up as a missionary kid was a whole different world than the majority of people know as “normal”. However, it was my normal and I loved it. From being able to run barefoot outdoors to worshipping our Savior in a country most people have never heard of was an experience that I am forever grateful for. I knew that the life I lived there was a life that I would want to live when I became an adult, along with being a princess, an ice cream taste tester, and all of that fun stuff. Unfortunately, those last dreams haven’t quite become a reality, but there is still hope for one day.
Despite that I am so excited for this new chapter that is opening up in my life. I am beginning to see that dream of being a missionary become a reality by having been officially accepted into Ethnos360, the mission group that my family has served with for these past 19 years, as an associate member to go back to my home. This upcoming school year I will be filling a very much needed, and dreaded by the general public, position as a high school math teacher. Yes, high school, and yes, math, I know, I’m crazy, I’ve heard it all before.
In Papua New Guinea I will most likely be teaching AP Calculus, Pre-Calculus, and Algebra 2, that is all open for change as anything within missions is, but I cannot wait to get over there. My sister, Christina, will be a Senior and we will very lovingly be living together. She is expecting to be allowed to throw parties and have friends over at will, little does she know that her bed time of 6pm will be strictly enforced every night. But in all seriousness, I am so happy that I am able to have this opportunity to live with her, get to know her so much better, and continue to strengthen our relationship.
For this past semester I have been working full time as a math teacher in Fort Worth, Texas, and have absolutely loved it. I am not perfect at it in any way and much trial and error has occurred as I strive to learn how to improve in my job. But over and over the Lord has reaffirmed that this is where he wants me to be. I could not imagine loving another job as much as I love this one. And getting the opportunity to mix the best job in the world with serving God through missions could not get any better.
Although not required, I would very much love it if you would be able to support me throughout this next year, whether it be monetarily, through prayer, or through emails of encouragement.
Thanks and gig’em,
