Tom’s main ministry at Interface (ITF) was to deal with issues between Interface and the local people. In addition, he was in charge of all the campus maintenance. Tom supervised the employees that worked on the ITF campus who were from the local Bena tribe. Unfortunately, many of the employees were not very dependable and showed up for work very sporadically.

The part of the ministry that they really enjoyed was having students, short-term volunteers or interns, visit them in their home. Tom and Tanya enjoyed getting to know the volunteers and having them be a part of their family, even for a short time.
