A couple of weeks ago I spent a Thursday driving 6 hours north to Colorado Springs to set up a display table and talk with high school students about New Tribes Bible Institute. It was the annual Awana Summit Conference and I wasn’t sure what to expect. You see, there would be about 30 other colleges there and I know most of the students are thinking about 4 year colleges and degrees. How many would be interested in considering a 2 year Bible school? But I was going by faith and trusting God for wisdom and conversations.
Well…WOW…was it ever worth it! I got 66 contact cards filled out. It was non-stop interaction from 1:30 – 6:15 pm, sometimes with groups of 6 at a time. PTL! I challenged them all, as children of God, to consider 2 years of serious, college level Bible study at NTBI before heading off to life and/or college. I think it struck a chord with many. We’ll have to wait and see what the Lord does. Thanks to all who prayed for this amazing opportunity!
The teaching in Iski continues and the people are still coming and listening intently. They have been introduced to Jesus now so it will only be a matter of a few weeks before they hear of his substitutionary death for them. Please keep praying for the Williamsons, Callahans and Tousch families as they present truth, and that there will be a great harvest among the Iski!
A little math…2017 – 1942 = 75…Did you know that this year marks NTM’s 75th anniversary. Since the very beginning of NTM, the Word of God has been at the center of everything we do. Here’s a short video with some of our early leaders emphasizing that exact point. Watch it here. Happy Anniversary NTM! May God continue to send us students for NTBI and missionaries for NTM (watch for our next email with news about our name ;>)). Thank You LORD for 75 years, about 300 tribes, hundreds of churches, innumerable believers, scores of translations and great work still going on! Send more laborers, please!
Thanks for your time and investing with us in ministry. We’re continuing to trust God to open doors to share about unreached people groups (perhaps 2,000 of them without His Word) and NTM’s training, which can thoroughly prepare laborers for cross cultural church planting.
Happy Easter…He is risen!
