Hosea 6:3—So let us know, let us press on to know the Lord. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; and he will come to us like the rain, Like the spring rain watering the earth.

Dear Friends,

ITF Program and Encounter Trips

In our winter update, I wrote that my colleague in Florida and I were reviewing many applications for the Interface Program (ITF) and Encounter trips that are going out this year. One of the ITF teams will be traveling to Papua New Guinea (PNG) this summer. In our previous update, I did not include the fact that there is a second ITF team which will be going to Brazil. What is the ITF program? It is a six-week college-level course designed for exposure to cross-cultural missions. There are 45 individuals who have applied for the ITF programs and the team going to PNG is filled. PTL! On the Encounter trips, team members will serve and experience ministry among unreached people groups. Encounter is a two-week program in which teams travel to Brazil, the Philippines, Mexico, Thailand, and a country in South Asia.

Mouk Missionaries outreach to the Anem and Lusi language groups

We are thankful that Mouk missionaries from the language group where we lived and served in the 80’s and early 90’s in West New Britain province, Papua New Guinea, are engaged in teaching Bible lessons in two different language groups. The language groups are the Lusi and the Anem. Ethnos360 missionaries are assisting with the efforts of translating Scripture into the vernacular of these two people groups. Please pray for the Ethnos360 missionaries and their national co-workers that they would be harmonious and strong teams as they translate and teach God’s Word. Also, please pray for the believers in these two language groups that they would be growing strong in their walk with the Lord.

50th Anniversary!

In March we celebrated our 50th anniversary. PTL! The years have flown by! We traveled to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, with our accommodation being very near the shores of Lake Coeur d’Alene. The lake itself, and for that matter, northern Idaho affords some spectacular scenery that is breathtaking!

Thank you!

We are grateful for your partnership with us in prayer and finance in the Lord’s work through these many years. Thank you for being on our team in seeing remote people groups reached with the gospel of Jesus Christ!
Together with you for Him,
Dave & Diann
