Dear Friends, ESL Well, we are into 2020, and what a month it has been!! A few weeks ago, I started a part-time job tutoring English as a second language. It has been a huge learning curve, but very enjoyable also. The Lord’s plan in all of this has been amazing as the job willContinue reading January-February 2020

Dear Friends and Family, Often we look at the calendar and say to each other, “Where has the month gone?” Or even more astounded, we are saying, “How has the year 2019 passed so quickly?” We started a Christmas letter, but failed at that, so here is a message of love to you all, withContinue reading January 2020
With this letter we want to wish you a very HAPPY & BLESSED NEW YEAR! Our new year has gotten off to a good start even though we don’t enjoy the cold and snow that seems to always come with January. We were hit with a 15” snow storm on December 29 so still aContinue reading January 2020

So – did you have a happily memorable Christmas season? Here’s how some missionary friends spent the holidays:
Thank you so much for your love, prayers and gifts! We are deeply grateful for your part in reaching the Hewa people with the love of Jesus. Thank you!
January 2020 Blessed New Year to you! I pray your Christmas was filled with the awareness of Christ’s great sacrifice and mercy as He placed Himself in a woman’s womb and experienced human birth.
Dear friends and family We really had a multinational Christmas this year. We had one family and a single girl from America, a couple from Canada, a family from Mexico and single girl from Germany. Then, of course, we were from Australia. But at least we all spoke English and had a great time together.
Hi Friends, The reason for the season: Christ came to save sinners.
FOR unto us a Child is born. UNTO us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, PRINCE OF PEACE. Isaiah 9:6
It is good to remember how Christ came to us as a baby but let’s not keep Him there. Let us look beyond the food and tinsel and remember, today He dwells in us through the Holy Spirit. As we learned in the lesson that I taught last week, “If Christ is in you, yourContinue reading Christmas 2019
Dear Friends and Supporters, Our home church in Duvall Washington, asked us to put together a very short video about our ministries out here in Yap. As I put together different clips, I exceeded the time frame that they asked for, and so they had to cut it shorter. I decided that I would keepContinue reading Christmas 2019
December 10, 2019 Greetings all, We trust you all are enjoying this Christmas season!

The government is in the process ofContinue reading December 2019
In August Paul and some of the guys from Tucson went down to Mexico. The trip had multiple purposes like most of our trips. One of our ministry partners was making a flight down to meet with his team so Paul and Tony joined him to spend some time working on the hanger and anContinue reading December 9, 2019
MERRY CHRISTMAS We have a list of family and friends we know, all written in a book and every year when Christmas comes, we go and have a look; and that is when we realize that those names are a part not of the book they’re written in, but of our very heart;
They always make me smile, those frightened fallen leaves as they scurry in front of me, driven by the cool winds of fall. They remind me of people running from impending doom. But alas, they will not escape. Winter will bury them and they will be forgotten by spring. This year there is another additionContinue reading December 2019
Are you still praying for the Kaje people as they hear the foundational Bible teaching? Last week they learned of Jesus’ words, “”I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” Jesus is the one and only road that leads to forgiveness for sin, eternalContinue reading December 2019

Dear family and friends It has been three weeks since I sent out an update. Three weeks ago Wendy went up with me.
