We just arrived home from our big Western Trip. We took off before any states had shut down in March, and over the next month watched things get cancelled and paused. We had hoped to visit at least six churches and many, many friends and partners. That obviously didn’t...

Where does the money go? This is a question that we all ask, and it’s very relevant in our situation with our monthly budget, and we want to be transparent.

The biggest chunk goes toward our ministry and living expenses (including taxes). Another large chunk goes toward...

We are so thankful for God’s great gift of salvation and His calling on all of us to serve in His kingdom. We are especially blessed that this calling takes us to another part of the world to do a specialized job.

We are also thankful to all of you who have stood by us...

The English alphabet may not be enough to label our fluid plans. In the last newsletter from PNG we thought we had a pretty good furlough plan laid out. Some of those things have worked well (travel to the USA, vehicle, Missions Retreat, visiting people and churches) b...

Furlough (home assignment) is an interesting time for missionaries. Every time we think about it, we realize more and more that our true home is a place we have never been—heaven. As we transition from this ‘home’ to the ‘old home’ where our families and friends live (...

As most of you who read this will know, we have had difficulties with logistics and communication with the Solos team for quite some time. Praise God with us that an opportunity came up to interact with Thonny Tetena, a translation consultant who lives on a remote isla...

Our whole family got to attend the Doromu-Koki New Testament dedication at a church in Port Moresby. This is the first time Christy and the boys have been able to attend such an event. This represents many years of work by some friends of ours, as well as two generatio...

For the Binumarien people, the Bible hasn’t been available for quite a long time. The New Testament had been completed and dedicated in 1984, but after a number of years, most of the New Testaments were falling apart. People had used them well, but there were no new on...
