The following is our current partnership development situation:
|Although our general support level for living in Papua New Guinea averaged near 100%, our needs are higher while living and developing the Adapt It software in the USA. As of October 2020 our support level is about 80% of what we need for living expenses and ministry work in the USA. Although we are now over age 70 and collecting social security, we are not yet retired, and are active full time in the ministry. The support needs mentioned above are in addition to the social security income we receive each month.|
The following are our current partnership development goals:
|We are trusting the Lord for:
We have been faith missionaries since 1980 and have seen God provide for us through a number of faithful prayer and financial partners. But we need to keep our team strong as we continue the work the Lord has called us to do. We are praying that new partners will join with us during the coming months.

if you would like to provide or contribute toward one of these partnership development
needs. See our Giving page and our
Current Annual Report page for more information.
We work in Bible translation as a faith ministry. We do not receive a guaranteed salary, but look to God to provide funds for all living and ministry expenses through individual friends, families and Churches whom He leads to participate. Those who provide support become partners in our ministry of Bible Translation and enable us to commit our full attention to the ministry God has called us to do.
We want our partners to feel like our relationship is two-way. We endeavor to follow the Biblical example of partnership in missions. There are a number of ways we can serve YOU, especially during our furlough times. Partnership also involves an investment of time to keep in touch. We promise to do our best to keep in touch on both a formal reporting basis, and also on a personal basis. We would like our partners to communicate their needs and struggles with us so that we can keep abreast of their lives and pray specifically for them.
I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:3-6 (NIV)
Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. 2 Corinthians 9:10-12 (NIV)
