Dear Church Family,
We trust that you are doing well in the Lord as we move through the summer of 2022! Here in Kennewick in July we are beginning to experience some triple digit temperatures. Getting hot!

The Pre-field Orientation (PFO) for the new Associate Ethnos360 Members was held for one week in June in Florida. One attendee wrote to me and said, “PFO was intense, overwhelming, convicting, encouraging and wonderful! It was such a blessing to meet other new missionaries, hear their stories and grow together that week.” I count it a privilege to have worked with these folks through this past year and Lord willing they will soon be in their place of ministry. The new missionaries will be going to different places of ministry in Brazil, Mexico, the USA, and Papua New Guinea.

Speaking of Papua New Guinea, there is a people group who live in a very remote area in the Highlands who for years have been asking for missionaries. This people group is called the “Kuyu.” They had been sending letters for 7 years to a neighboring language group. The neighboring language group has had missionaries and has an established church. The Kuyu people have seen the life-changing transformation in the people of the neighboring language group and because of this, they had been repeatedly asking for missionaries to come.

This is a short video about a recent trip that the missionary team undertook to announce that they were coming to live amongst the Kuyu and teach them God’s Word in the Kuyu language.

Many of our associate members heard about the ministries for which they applied when they visited the Ethnos360 website. One of my responsibilities is posting the different ministry opportunities for associate support missionaries on the website. There will be a new automated process put in place in September which will help to keep the ministry postings as current as possible. In the initial launch, it could get quite busy! Would you please pray for the launch to go without any hiccups?  Thank you in advance! Also, Diann’s knee has not improved much and so she will be seeing her doctor next week regarding that. Your prayers for her are appreciated!

Thank you for your partnership with us in the work of seeing people groups in remote areas of this world reached with the life-saving message of the Lord Jesus Christ!

Together with you for Him,

Dave and Diann
