In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. Psalm 5:3

The big move for the home office in Sanford, Florida has finally taken place. It had been anticipated for several years with much prayer to the Lord as extensive renovations on the future office building were needing to be accomplished. Last Friday and over the weekend the anticipated move took place and now we are thankful that the work routine at the ConnectionCenter has been fully operational as of Monday. PTL!


Recently I purchased a desk that elevates with my monitors. It affords a break from sitting and allows me to stand up comfortably and do my work. There are many health benefits associated with a stand up desk. Also, from what I have read, there are studies that show there is a reduction in back pain.

The Lord continues to move upon the hearts of individuals from different walks of life concerning missionary service. As always, it is my privilege to assist them through the process of becoming associate members with New Tribes Mission. Beginning later this year, some will be serving with NTM stateside in the areas of IT, mobilization, and chaplaincy. Others will be serving outside of the USA in
ministries of teaching, guest housing, medical and administrative positions.

In June the Connection Center will be holding the Pre-field Orientation, which will last for 10 days. I have been asked to travel to Florida and assist during PFO. Diann will be accompanying me and we are
looking forward to meeting the new associate members plus reconnecting with our friends and colleagues at the home office.

Diann’s mom’s surgeries were successful in the fall. Thank you for praying for Shirley! Good circulation has been restored to both of her legs. Also, the ulcers on her foot have healed nicely. These days, she
gets around fairly well with the use of her walker.

As, we move through 2017, Diann and I would like to wish you all the best in the Lord.

Dave & Diann
