It is always encouraging to hear of past students who graduate New Tribes Bible Institute and continue on in the training with New Tribes Mission. It is another thing all together when we hear that they actually leave the states and arrive on the field they have chosen. That excites our hearts to no end, it is why we are serving at NTBI! Such was the case last week when we received an email from Russell and Carly who have just arrived in Southeast Asia to start their careers as church planters. Then this week we have two more families leaving the states to head off to PNG. Taylor and Abbey and Greg and Kristen will land in a new culture and begin learning their first language and culture in a new country.
For all these folks, it will take a year or more to get prepared for their long term assignments and ministries. We know they appreciate our prayers as they settle in and begin studying. Please pray for us too as we continue to ground believers in the foundational truths of the Bible, trusting God to convince many to join in the work of taking His Word to those who have none of it…not the first Word!
For those on that list,
Rex and Shirley
2Chron 16.9 For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, looking to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose hearts are bent toward Him (in other words…they are His entirely and want to make Him known to those who do not know Him)!
