Much of the Northwest have been blessed with an early spring. Daffodils are blooming in profusion and the flowering plum tree situated near the house with the light pink petals has been a feast for one’s eyes. The handiwork of our Creator is on full display!
Last week we were grateful to receive news from the Mouk language group where we ministered in the late 80’s and early 90’s. The Mouk church has been involved in an outreach to another language group. The Mouk missionaries have been teaching the Creation to Christ lessons for several weeks. Lord willing we will soon hear of the birth of a church in another area of New Britain. Additionally, there is ongoing Bible teaching in the various Mouk villages. In one location, a new Creation to Christ series is starting up. In other locations, they are teaching through I Corinthians and Romans.
We are concerned that there has been a TB outbreak in several Mouk villages, with many old and young becoming very ill and some deaths reported. Pray that the TB would not spread further and that the people would be faithful to take their medicine.
At the office here in Long Beach, WA, I’m continuing to work with couples and individuals who are interested in joining the NTM team. From all parts of the country we are receiving preliminary information from individuals who have skill sets that are urgently needed by mission teams overseas and here in the USA. Our desire is to guide these individuals through the steps in the application process until they are approved as associate members with NTM. Would you please pray for qualified individuals to look to the Lord, step out in faith and join the work in reaching peoples in remote areas with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Please pray specifically for teachers, who are desperately needed in schools in PNG, south east Asia and Latin America.
Thank you for being part of the team in seeing the gospel go to the uttermost parts of the earth!
Because of His Grace,
Dave & Diann
