Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.  Eph. 3:20-21 (NKJV)

Sweet to my insides

Week after week John went to church to hear about God, but he always left with a heavy heart. The sermon and the reading of the Scriptures were meaningless to him because they were given in a neighboring language which John couldn't understand. John wanted to hear God speak to him, but God seemed distant and foreign. His heart ached to know the true and living God.
One night John was sitting around the fire with other men from the village. Darius, one of the men who had been working with the translators, came running over to them carrying in his hand the first three chapters of the book of Mark, written for the first time in his language.

God was speaking to him and they were the sweetest words he had ever heard.  Read more.


The next 3 weeks are crucial to our ministry continuing or not! We are currently receiving 33% of our Wycliffe approved monthly ministry budget. Praise the Lord for His increase & generosity through His people! However, 50% is required by mid-June for approval to attend Intercultural Communication Course (ICC) which is held in Waxhaw, North Carolina from July 15 - August 15. If we are unable to attend this required course in July, then our serving in Papua New Guinea will be delayed until at least next year. Our deadline to meet this financial goal of 50% of our monthly budget is only 3 weeks away!

We need your help

There are many like John who need God's Word in their own language. Prayerfully consider partnering with us.
