Dear Friends, Winter is finally here! Today we woke up to a chilly layer of snow on the ground and I guess we won’t be seeing green grass here for another 6 months! Although I’m not a fan of ice and snow, I love Christmas and the change of seasons and all the different shadesContinue reading November 2019
From Papua New Guinea Thanksgiving isn’t a holiday in this country, but we have plenty to be thankful for. Margaret is a local Bible teacher (small groups) and on Saturday 6 of her students gave clear testimonies of their salvation through Christ alone. They are very thankful. Pray for their growth and wisdom for Margaret.Continue reading Thankfulness, November 2019
This letter finds me having just returned from Asia Pacific last week. The jet lag is pretty much behind me now and I am starting to function more normal once again – not feeling like I need to go to bed at 12:00 noon – ha! Thanks so much for your prayers while I wasContinue reading November 1, 2019
October sped by mostly spent on the road visiting supporters and friends. What a precious time it was! Every day that I was on the road I was confronted with the fact that I was blindly trusting and following my car’s navigation system. I knew the destination but had NO idea what route I’d beContinue reading November 2019
Dear Team Members, November 5th, 2019 There is NEVER A DULL MOMENT at the CASE HOUSEHOLD!!!!! CASE FULL of goings on from day to day!!!!!

Thank you so much for your prayers for state authorization for IBC. An IBC team spent the day at the State Capitol last week and came back jubilant! IBC has been granted state authorization, contingent upon a few stipulations that need to be met.
Dear friends and family Last week I took Joel Kemaya with me to Koropa. Joel is a PNG man from a village southwest of here. We have known him since he was just a boy in the late 1980s. He is now an evangelist/Bible teacher and travels quite a bit. We have been concerned aboutContinue reading November 1, 2019
Hi from Yap, Micronesia, Yap has been experiencing a bad outbreak of dengue fever and leptospiroris for the past few months. Hundreds of people have been in and out of hospital, which is overflowing and staff are putting up makeshift wards made of tarps to accommodate all the new patients. School was cancelled for aContinue reading November 1, 2019
Update on Cherrie’s heart condition Thank you all sooo much for your PRAYERS today as we saw my rhythm cardiologist this afternoon, regarding my irregular pulse, low blood pressure, and Atrial Fibrillation. Dr Duran was very thorough, as usual, asking me lots of questions. At this time, he feels I should have an ablation, andContinue reading October 30, 2019
Greetings from Steve and Sandy Aholt, Thank you for your continued prayers and financial support. This Thursday will mark the last day before our retirement from ABWE. This truly is a short life that we live here, and only what is done for Christ will last. Live and witness for Christ daily!
Dear family and friends, Sometimes, I find it a challenge to know what I should write. It is not the case this month. I will jump right in and you will soon know why I say that.
A look at what life is like in a tribe in Papua New Guinea
Greetings all! Thanks so much for praying for Jeanne and I as I was traveling yesterday. I ended up making record time as it took only 22 hours 40 minutes to make the trip from wheels up in Asia Pacific until touch down in Kearney, Nebraska
Seasons of Change I love Wisconsin – always have – because of the four distinct seasons we have. Contrary to the popular belief that it is always winter here in the Frozen Tundra, we actually do have spring, summer (okay, it’s short!) and autumn. When I was in the tropics of Brazil and the desertContinue reading Fall 2019
Dear friends, IBC’s school year is off to a good start! We are halfway through the semester and we are seeing significant growth in student lives! The spiritual warfare I referred to in the previous email is still going on, but we are experiencing God’s goodness and protection–thanks in part to your prayers!
Dear family and friends, Well, it has been three weeks since I wrote last. The first week I went up to find that everyone had gone to a court in a neighbouring clan. Then that night they sang all night and I was thinking, “This has to be either a wedding or a girl’s comingContinue reading October 12, 2019
Greetings All, We just arrived back to civilization a few days ago so now have some email. We have had some long hot days but the Lord has richly blessed our time here.
Dear Team Members, October 3rd, 2019 Wow, this year is flying by!!!!!!!!!!!!! We expected to be hit by Hurricane Dorian, but it went away from us, and we got a little rain and a little wind. We were all prepared, and tired from preparing, but thankfully we survived!
Fall in Flagstaff is generally beautiful—with temperatures in the perfect range, bright sunny days and cool nights. The students and Student Life staff can testify to the prevalence of wind as well, as they just returned from four days at Lake Powell for the annual Kick-off Kampout. Thank God for the safe return of allContinue reading October 2019
Back in PNG: God is certainly at work answering our prayers for the Kaje people as Taylor & Abby Goheen, Jon & Jen Myers, and Christopher & Lilli Meyer teach the foundational truths of God’s Word to them. Remarkably the entire village continues to come to the teaching sessions – a miracle in itself asContinue reading October 2019
Thank You Help us celebrate the home-going of the man who led the Hewa villagers to follow the “Jesus trail.”
Greetings all, The week has gotten off to a busy start for our pilots as they are positioning everyone to the village of “Wo’o nTowu” for the Bible conference which starts on Thursday. In just a few hours a number of us will be boarding our “Kodiak” airplane and headed in as well.
Greetings All Wow what a trip!, but “the eagle” did get landed and on schedule. Monday was an early start as Jeanne and I left the house at 4:30 a.m. to head for the airport in Kearney. All was on schedule. When I got to Denver it was time to eat breakfast and so IContinue reading End of September 2019
Dear friends and family Last week Wendy went up with me. We arrived in the afternoon and Wendy was able to spend some time with Dolis in her garden but other than that she didn’t get a lot of time with the others individually. That night’s lesson was in Sevis’ house and we contrasted theContinue reading Late September 2019
