Charles Dickens wrote a classic novel titled, A Tale of Two Cities. We have a tale of three cities (well, really more like jungle villages) that reminds us that God is not limited in His work even during this pandemic year. Our family lived and worked among the Kuna people of Panama from 1985 to […]
Update on Asia-Pacific trip Thanks for covering us with prayers during the trip to Asia-Pacific. The 3 literacy workshops went well and we are confident the consultant team there is trained and equipped to move the field into the future. Our goal was to produce literacy materials in three languages, but we completed them […]

This was a complete miracle as God opened doors that were previously completely closed to the Gospel. In these first years of ministry in the village, Anelio & Silverixia have faced opposition […]
This is the companion testimony to the previous article, titled "I am coming to believe the Book!" and tells of the challenges and disappointments facing the Kuna missionary couple, Anelio and Silverixia.
Kuna missionaries face opposition and humiliation in a village previously closed to the Gospel. But God opens doors and begins to work in hearts!
Two Kuna villages have requested missionaries to teach through "God's Book." A recent phone call from our friend and coworker Edelfonso gives a welcome update.
