Greetings all,

This email finds me having just returned from almost two weeks in our Wana tribe. There we were able to hold a leadership Bible conference and discuss and talk about many ministries of our church. It was truly a blessed time. Following the Bible conference we flew to the Wana village of Padalempe where we spent a week working on comprehension checking on many Old Testament verses which go along with our teaching program. This was about 60 pages of selected verses from Leviticus through to the end of the Old Testament. We are hoping that we can complete the various pre-checks on these verses within the next few months so that all the selected verses from Exodus to the end of the O.T. can be final checked in September of 2017.


I just returned to town for the weekend and early Monday morning will be headed to make a consultant visit to one of our Wana Missionary teams who are serving on an island to the east of here. I will be traveling with two Wana church leaders and their wives. We will appreciate your prayers for us that we will be an encouragement to them. On this trip we have been made very aware that, “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

Thanks so much for your part!
