“Look at the ravens. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for God feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than any birds!” Luke 12:24
We would love to hear how you are doing. This is a very unsettling time! I do not like unknowns and like to have my life planned out. SO the Lord is working on me to rest in Him. I have peace in the fact that the Lord sees the big picture and has it all figured out when all I can see is one little piece that makes no sense.
We greatly appreciate each of you that have been able to continue supporting us financially while times are hard. We know the Lord will provide for us. He always does. We are thankful to have this time with our kids and grandkids! We really treasure this after many years of living far apart.
Ned has done a lot of work on Tigak Bible book summaries. He is anxious to get back to the tribe and work through them with his Tigak friends to make sure everything is being understood clearly. It is crucial for the Tigak to understand the setting and background for each book of the Bible for clearer comprehension. Please continue to pray with us that a path to get back to PNG would happen this year. Ned is able to continue proof reading, correcting and improving the Scriptures he has translated. This is a key step that needs to happen. We are still anxious for final translation checks to happen so we can begin the process of type setting and printing the Tigak Bible.
As soon as Ned is able to make the next trip to PNG we will need to have funds available to print the Tigak New Testament plus Old Testament portions. We did already receive one very generous gift from the Ethnos 360 Bible School graduating class in 2019! We will have expenses for printing and shipping the Tigak Bible. If you are interested in donating specifically for these printing/shipping expenses you can send gifts directly to our Tigak Ministry account 449026 in PNG through our home office in Sanford, FL. You can make credit card donations at 866-547-2460 (but there is a credit card fee for this) or use the address at the end of this letter for sending checks. This is a Tigak team account and is different from our personal account.
We are praying for you as you are trusting the Lord daily for your needs! He is faithful!
