Dear friends, First of all, let me share that the Lord has answered your prayers for an Academic Dean! Just last week Gene Stevenson was offered–and accepted–the role of Academic Dean. He is in his late-30’s, is pursuing his doctorate, and has a great passion for cross-cultural ministry–and a growing burden for Native Americans. GeneContinue reading May 2019

Dear friends and family Yes, we are really back here in PNG. David received the ‘all clear’ from the doctors in Australia so we are ready to roll again as soon as we have a few days R&R to recharge our batteries. It has been stressful the last few months changing back and forth betweenContinue reading May 2019

Ecclesiastes 7:8 — “The conclusion of something is better than its beginning, and a patient attitude is more valuable than a proud one.” (ISV) With much longing and lamenting so ends this era of life here in Papua New Guinea. It’s certainly been the best 39+ years a person could hope to live. Though myContinue reading May 2019

In late 2015, God moved me back home to Wisconsin from Chihuahua Mexico. But He graciously provided an itinerate ministry so I could continue serving Him in missions! This means I can still be a part of the work in Mexico, but base out of Neenah, Wisconsin.

The afternoon sun cast a warm glow through the classroom windows as the five of us interacted around the table. Whenever there was a lag in the discussion I interjected some new thoughts and allowed the students time to respond. Their ability to think and process improved noticeably over the course of the semester. IContinue reading May 2019

Thank you so much for your prayers for our two significant events last month! Both the ANAM Southwest Regional (where IBC staff have students served three years in a row) and the workshop at the ABHE Convention went exceedingly well.

April 2019

Because you prayed…. Our annual regional Conference proved to be a refreshing AND challenging time for all! Fellowship and family frivolity added to the fun. Feasting for the Soul came from passages in 2 Corinthians as 2 of our mission leaders shared that we are: Christ’s Fragrance – 2 Cor 2:14-17; His Letters — 2Continue reading April 2019

Thank you for your prayers for the students as they ministered both on the Navajo Reservation (Shonto area) and in Oklahoma and Texas. The two teams wearily pulled in to IBC on Friday.

Dear family and friends, Greetings to you in the Name of Jesus! No man is greater than his prayer life. The pastor who is not praying is playing; the people who are not praying are straying. We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few pray-ers; many singers, few clingers; lots ofContinue reading April 2019
