How many of you know what that PNG stands for?? Of course … Papua New Guinea. Many of you have asked about or have been keeping track of the Adventures of Cody and Beka as they prepared for the mission field. You may remember that their first attempt at leaving January 17th was cancelled the day before their flight […]
Barefoot, I bend down and pick another clothes pin from a tin can. The breeze is warm and swirls around the little, wet dress I clip on the wash line. I smile. Our Lydia adores this yellow dress. Deep breathe. “Lord, you did it’. My hearts whispers to My good God. The last 2 months […]
Merry Christmas from our house to yours! The Christmas music is going full tilt in our house here in Amdu. One of our favorite things about Christmas is the music, especially the music that helps us to remember that Jesus is the consummation of all that is on God’s heart towards us. This has been […]

Hello everyone. Josh and Mel Simmons here. We finally made it back to the U.S., or something resembling the U.S. If I didn’t know better I would think I was still in the 3rd world country I just left, the jury is still out. It was a bizarre trip back to say the least but […]

Miscommunication still happens, even when we are trying our hardest for it not to happen. This story is an excellent example of why we have so many steps – and so much checking – built into our translation work! True, it will take many years to get the whole Bible translated into Lusi, but, by the grace of God, there will be the fewest errors possible.
We are so encouraged with how God has kept Chris and Evie Jones in the race for the Gospel to the Pei people!
In these days I got the sad news that another Mengen believer has passed away. He and his family are very precious to me. When we moved into the area in 2009, this family was the first to open their hearts and home to me and Marie. It’s very very hard for me, as they have become my family! I would want to be there with them. I would want to spend a few days with them, standing at their backs! But this is God’s plan for me for now.
As you know we are not working among the Mengen on our own! We are part of a much larger team. It all starts back here at home and stretches all the way to where we are working. And each link is vital. Check out this blog, and see how you can be part of this chain reaching the Mengen.
