Diann and I trust that you are doing well as we begin this month of November. The temperatures here in Kennewick are cooler and the fall colors are in full display!
It’s a joy! One joy of being in the position of Associate Coach is to receive news that folks whom I have worked with in years past want to become career members with Ethnos360 after completing their time as associate members. Recently there was good news that a homeschool consultant, who has been serving in Papua New Guinea (PNG), has decided to become a career member and continue in her role as a homeschool consultant to the missionary children in PNG. PTL!
More good news from PNG! Diann and I served for many years beginning in 1985 on the island of New Britain, which is over 14,000 sq miles in size. We received word over the weekend that there are now churches planted in 23 language groups. A very conservative estimate shows that there are 12,000 believers and 380 church leaders! PTL!
In our summer update, I wrote about the Kuyu people. There are 3 missionary families who are intending to be moved into this remote helicopter location by mid-November. Once in their location, they will begin culture and language learning. Please pray that their transition to this remote setting will go well and they will make good progress in learning the language and culture of the Kuyu people.
More applicants are needed! Please continue to pray for more applicants to the Ethnos360 Associate Program as well as more applicants to the Ethnos360 Training Program for those wanting to become career missionaries with Ethnos360. Your prayers are appreciated!
Nice to be near family! It has been good to be near our son and his family in Kennewick. Just recently we enjoyed some time in the country together with a visit to a “Pumpkin Event” at Bill’s Berry Farm in Grandview, WA.
Soon we will be celebrating Thanksgiving and we trust that it will be a day filled with blessings for you and the giving of thanks to our Lord for his provision and his care!
THANK YOU for partnering with us through prayer and finances to reach the lost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
Dave & Diann
