As I mentioned in our update letter, we’d have a video here and quite a few pictures to share with ya’ll! The last 2 months have been a time of adjustment and learning for our family. Most of the pictures speak for themselves, so I’ll let them do what they do best! Aute is our […]
Wow! What a week! Or well uh, two weeks now. Part of us feels like we just stepped (stumbled, tripped, fell..) out of the plane yesterday while part of us feels like we’ve been here some time already. For those who don’t know, we got to fly in one of NTMA’s (New Tribes Mission Aviation) […]
Thank you for your prayers and support throughout 2016. We are excited to continue to be “your hands and feet” as we serve with NTM to see a Thriving Church for Every People.

This frees them to focus on their ministry, knowing their children’s educational needs are being met. We want to do more than provide them with an education academically. We want to see them grow […]
We begin our final preparation for departure to Papua New Guinea by asking you to join us in prayer for our family, nuclear & extended. Together we’ll face unprecedented relational challenges. That is of course from our perspective, indeed there are many who have walked this same trail before and from whose example we take heart. […]
