We hope you are enjoying this Christmas Season and getting your shopping done before Christmas Eve! For some his has been a challenging year but we know the Lord is faithful to give us the grace we need to continue on even when we think we can’t go any further. Let’s give Him the Praise and Honor He deserves.


News from PNG is always a mix of good and bad such as tribal Church leadership running off with someone’s wife but then a number of people getting saved and baptized. So continue to pray for these Churches that have been established; their leaders and new believers as they seek to walk a life that is pleasing to our Lord and Savior.

There are a few rumors going around that I would like to clarify so everyone is clear. First off, I know there will be a lot of disappointment out there but NO, I am not running for President! I am President of our association and that is enough.

Second rumor has to do with us getting up there in age. Just because I cleared another decade hurdle and we became first time grandparents doesn’t mean we are getting old! Our Micah and his wife Dara had a little girl Arianna Sayuri Reichman on 11/11/15.

Jared has one more year to go to finish up his degree in Mechanical Engineering. Mariko is happily married and working in the HR department of Hawaii Pacific University and models for a bridal gown store. Mieko is finishing up her prerequisites and will be heading off to the mainland in a year to get her BA in ultrasound. She’s excited as this December she is on the cover of This Week Magazine – Maui.

Lastly, this rumor is true. Beginning next year, we are going on retired status with New Tribes Mission. We will continue to represent the mission as occasions arise and donors can continue to send support and receive tax deductible receipts. This status frees us up to pursue other employment opportunites to supplement our support.

We hope 2015 has been a good year for you and 2016 will be even better. Thank you so much for your prayers and faithful giving over these past 30 years as we all seek to reach this lost world for Christ. Have a Blessed and Merry Christmas!

Because He said, “Go,”
