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.

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.

Greetings all! We trust you all have been enjoying this nice summer! We wanted to send you out another update on some of the recent “goings on” in the region of Asia Pacific where we minister.
Dear ones, Summer has finally arrived! As we were working out in the yard on Saturday and shirts soaked with sweat we felt like we back in Asia Pacific! Having spent so much time in Asia Pacific we have come to enjoy the heat much more than the Nebraska “cold” – ha. With this letterContinue reading July 2019
Greetings All, It is hard to believe this is already the first day of summer…..seems like just a couple of weeks ago I was getting home from Asia Pacific!

Dear friends, Wow, I left for Asia Pacific during a cold March but have returned home to a beautiful Spring! Even though it was still cold here in the USA there was no lack of warm weather in Asia Pacific as it was very hot. There is always an acclimation adjustment when I go overContinue reading May 13, 2019
Greetings all – just a short note to let you know that I landed in our home town of Kearney, Nebraska at 10:30 last night. Jeanne was there at the airport to meet me and so good to be home once again! Also really good to lay down on our own bed last night afterContinue reading End of April 2019
Greetings all, I wanted to touch base with you before I get out of email contact for a couple of weeks.

This week has been a good and profitableContinue reading March 28, 2019
Greetings all, Just to let you know that the eagle has landed and that my trip went well. We had very mild headwinds going from Denver up over Alaska and down to Tokyo which put us in to Japan an hour early. I was thankful for one less hour to have to sit on theContinue reading Late March 2019
Greetings all, In just two weeks I will be escaping the “feel like January” month of March and enter the heat and humidity of Asia Pacific.

Hello! We thought that at the writing of this letter we might be welcoming spring back into our lives but it doesn’t appear that is happening. We have had so many consecutive days of freezing cold weather that the sewer pipes at our church froze up leaving us with quite a dilema. We are hopingContinue reading February 2019
Greetings all, It has been awhile since we sent out an email update so thought maybe this morning I would bring you up to date.

Dear friends, With this letter we trust you had a blessed Christmas and want to wish you a Happy New Year! Our family was really reduced in size this year but Jeanne and I enjoyed our time together and also spending Christmas Day with her mom at the care center. Geoff and Tina kept veryContinue reading January 2019
Dear Ministry Partners, It is hard to believe that November is already here and with it the winter months closing in quickly. In our last letter we were making plans for my departure to Asia Pacific. Little did I know at that time what was in store for me on this trip.
Greetings all, I want to thank all of you who have been praying for those of us involved in the massive earthquake that hit the city of Palu nearly two weeks ago.
