Greetings from the two of us! We trust that your summer went well in spite of some of the differences that this Covid virus has brought to our way of life. This is a big month for Jeanne’s mom as we just celebrated her 101st birthday yesterday! She has already outlived her mother who wasContinue reading September 2020
Who would have thought this pandemic and accompanying restrictions would still be influencing our lives to so great an extent in September!? In this area the discomfort and anxiety is compounded by weather patterns that are equally strange: a persistent wind night after night, almost no rain during our normal monsoonal period, and excessive heat.Continue reading September 2020
Arrived in Kennewick! The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring. Isaiah 58:11 NLT
Dear family and friends, There is not much new news from here, but I have come up with a few things to share that may be of interest to you. I will close with some VERY exciting news from Papua New Guinea.
From the front lines in PNG: Over in the Amdu language group — the Good News of salvation thru Jesus’ death and resurrection was presented to them several weeks ago. We now have brothers and sisters in Christ in this isolated jungle locale! The baby believers can use our prayers! Here are a few ofContinue reading September 2020

Greetings from Steve and Sandy Aholt, We thank the Lord for the provisions that He gives to you so that you can faithfully share with us during our retirement. Your prayers are helping us to stay healthy and strong so that Sandy’s foot will heal completely.
Embracing the Crazy Dear friends, That’s the best way I know how to sum up the past three months since we arrived back in the USA in April. Although it’s a daily challenge for us (as I am sure it is for all of you) to embrace with joy what the Lord puts before usContinue reading Summer 2020
Sunday morning church in Wana Greetings all, As mentioned in earlier correspondence we are thankful that even in spite of the Covid-19 the Lord still continues to build His church and open up avenues for us. 41 years ago, when we first moved into Wana, I would have never dreamt that one day I wouldContinue reading August 6, 2020
Honestly, I am finding it difficult to prepare for classes, to maintain a positive outlook, and to find joy in the mundane routines of life. There is so much uncertainty, so much death, suffering, chaos, rage, injustice, and evil. It is overwhelming! I know you feel it, too. I told the Lord the other dayContinue reading August 2020

Greetings all, “….And the Lord added daily to the church such as should be saved – Act’s 2:47.” When we moved into the Wana Tribe back in 1979 we quickly learned of a sub-dialect of Wana known as the “Kaju Morangka” people. These people were the most remote of the Wana people and VERY afraidContinue reading July 20, 2020
Dear friends, Wow it hardly seems possible we are already into the middle of summer. We were hoping that the Corona virus would be gone by now, but it seems it and some of the restrictions it has brought upon us are still sticking around. Things are definitely more relaxed now than in March andContinue reading July 2020
After nearly 40 years in Papua New Guinea struggling to understand their reasoning and logic, I’m settling in to the land of my birth to – guess what! – struggle to understand the reasoning and logic that prevails in the USA today. A simple example of common sense from the jungle: WHY, when walking alongContinue reading July 2020

As for man, his days are like grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourishes. When the wind has passed over it, it is no more and its place acknowledges it no longer. Psalm 103:15,16
