Tools for the day: chainsaw, GPS and an oven

There's a bit more to being a missionary than learning culture and language and sharing God's Word.

Tim and Kat Warner are in training with New Tribes Mission, learning about the practical aspects of day-to-day life in a tribe.

Tim wrote, "Today we learned some amazing things … we learned how to use a GPS and a compass, plot our position on a map and make bread from scratch."

In the next two weeks they'll continue similar lessons, learning about engine repair, cooking even more from scratch, hair cutting, safety using a chainsaw, making a fire and house building, among other things. Tim wrote, "With these basic skills, life will be made easier which allows us to focus on learning [culture and] language and presenting the Gospel."

Please pray for them to learn quickly and retain what they learn as they continue through missionary training.
