Greetings All, It’s been a while since we have sent out an email, and we wanted to bring you all up to date on some happenings in Wana in light of the some of the restrictions and postponements that have had to take place due to the COVID-19 virus.
Greetings all, In this day of covid-19 we hear a lot about online classes and schooling. 45 years ago, when our missionary career first began, computers were not on the market and that thing called email, text messages, internet and the like were not even in our imaginations. And even when it did come intoContinue reading February 2021
Dear friends, With this letter the two of us want to wish you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR! Someone said they wanted to uninstall 2020 and download the new version as the old one had a virus 😊. The past year has been a different one for all of us for sure and hopefully weContinue reading January 2021
Dear friends, Greetings from the two of us!
Greetings all! We trust this finds you all well as we enter into this autumn season. Even though we are hindered in some ways by the Covid-19 virus we are grateful for how the Lord is opening up ways for us to continue on with our ministry.
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
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
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
Greetings all! I trust the summer has gotten off to a good start for you as you learn to navigate with the virus restrictions and the limitations it has put upon some of us. Things in Asia Pacific are much the same and there have been lot of travel restrictions.
Dear friends, We wrote our last letter to you the first part of March as I was making preparations to depart for Asia Pacific. We knew things were touch and go as we kept hearing of mounting quarantines and travel interruptions. We were praying and praying and asking the Lord what I should do. WeContinue reading May recap 2020
Greetings from Jeanne and I! It seems this last month has been a bit crazy with all the things that have been going on around the world. We trust you are not going stir crazy with all the staying at home! Of course our place of service in Asia Pacific has been affected in aContinue reading May 2020
Greetings all! I trust you all are doing okay in the midst of this coronavirus and the change of life that it has brought with it – staying home except for the important things, wearing a mask in the grocery store, remembering to sanitize hands after exiting, going through the hand soap at twice theContinue reading April 2020
Greetings all, As you know I have been scheduled to depart to Asia Pacific this coming Monday. Our mission has a great “contingency team” who has been monitoring this whole corona virus situation closely, so we have been following along with their updates and recommendations. As we have looked at all the travel interruptions andContinue reading Mid-March 2020
Greetings, all! With the lengthened days we are reminded that Spring is just around the corner! We are glad to get away from the cold cold of January and February and start to enjoy some nicer days. I just came back from Phoenix a little over a week ago and while there it was hardContinue reading March 2020
Exciting News! Greetings all, We have some exciting news hot off the press this morning. After 40 years of waiting we have finally been able to construct an airstrip in the village of Paramba in a spot just below and adjacent to the village! The first airstrip we had in this village was about aContinue reading February 4, 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
December 10, 2019 Greetings all, We trust you all are enjoying this Christmas season! The last few months we have had a thrust to get new airstrips opened up in the Wana tribe, so I thought I would share with you a new airstrip we are presently constructing. The government is in the process ofContinue reading December 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
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
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.
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
This letter finds me heading back to Asia Pacific soon! It hardly seems possible that the summer months are now passed and the time to travel is here once again. Needless to say I am looking forward to getting back to the “land and water” in this region of the world. Pray that I willContinue reading September 2019
Greetings all, It hardly seems possible that in less than three weeks I will be making my way back over to Asia Pacific. We want to thank each of you who have been praying for this trip and the finances that are needed. Praise the Lord the funds we were praying for have come inContinue reading August 27, 2019
