Dear family and friends,
Greetings from sunny central Florida. Our Headquarters in Sanford, Florida has had a change of address. We have acquired a newer building just a few blocks from the old one. This 6 story building will better suit the needs of the home offices of our mission organization. The new address is 312 West First Street, Sanford, FL 32771-1231.
We also wanted to let you know that New Tribes Mission – USA has a new name. New Tribes Mission is already known by different names in different countries so this change is just for NTM-USA. The new name is Ethnos 360. Ethnos is a Greek word meaning “nations, tribes or people groups” and 360 degrees refers to the whole world. This is right in line with our goal of reaching the least reached people groups of the world. The goals of NTM have not changed since it was founded 75 years ago. In some areas of the world “tribes” has a negative connotation and some tribes have heard the gospel at some point but maybe not clearly, so “new” isn’t completely accurate. There are also countries where going in as a “mission” is not possible. These are some of the reasons for the name change. It is going to take some getting used to, but we are happy to be part of a mission that clearly presents the gospel, disciples believers to maturity, and builds local New Testament churches in the least reached areas of the world.
Brad and I celebrated our wedding anniversary during the first week of May. It is hard to believe that we have now been married for 37 years! We had a nice meal out in a small but popular diner. We did some looking around in a nursery and came home with a beautiful deep red alamanda vine. It is now planted in the flower garden in the front of our duplex.
We desire that you pray for us. Our ladies group at church has been studying the book of Colossians. The prayer requests that I have listed come from the first chapter of that book.
- Pray that we will be filled with the knowledge of his will, in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.
- Pray that we will walk worthy of the Lord, being fruitful in every good work.
- Pray that we will increase in the knowledge of God.
- Pray that we will be strengthened with all might according to his glorious power.
By His grace,
Wanda (and Brad) Hull
