A new church is born!!
Just today, as I write this (Oct.1st), we have heard that a new body of believers was started this weekend among another previously-unreached people group. This was in Papua New Guinea, among the Siar tribe. Another piece to the Revelations 5:9 puzzle is coming together! [For more details click on
And in the Loron tribe in west Africa, they have another milestone coming up this month. Our missionary collegues will be formally appointing elders (teaching-pastors) to head up that young church on their next visit into the village. It has been nine years since the missionaries had to move out of that area.
Another people group that we can pray for together is the Glaro tribe from Côte d’Ivoire and Liberia. Missionaries are moving back into their villages this month and next, to continue working on Bible translation, and culture & language learning, in preparation for telling them the Good News for the first time in their own language.
We are also excited for an Ivorian couple in missionary training in Missouri. The husband, Norbert Yao, is a member of our newly-formed French Language Resources Team. Pray for Norbert & his family as they do their missionary training in English, before returning to their homeland as NTM co-workers. He will be a big asset to “us” foreign missionaries in reaching out cross-culturally to the many unreached people groups in French West Africa.
PRAY with us:
1- for a buyer for our house, so we can move to Florida to work on a translation-friendly school edition of our chronological Bible teaching materials.
2- for the grade one Bible lessons for our Haiti project (in French and Creole) – that we have not quite finished yet.
3- for the missionaries re-entering sensitive areas of Africa to prepare the way for Bible teaching in the Glaro language.
PRAISE God with us:
1- for the progress on the Haiti grade one Bible lessons, as we wait for our house to sell.
2- for the new believers among the Siar people group in PNG.
3- for missionaries like Lesley, who are willing to return to difficult areas in order to see all languages reached with the Gospel.
Thank you for being a part of God’s work of reaching every tribe, language, people & nation (Rev.5:9),
