Teaching a Literacy Module

Katie Moore has been ministering to the Nahuatl people in Mexico, but recently she went to Colombia to teach a literacy module to missionaries-in-training at the national training institute. She commented, “They have challenged me, blessed me and moved me with their passion.” One of the students said, “Wanting to help people read the Word of God for themselves should be something alive and beating in our hearts.” Pray for the students to maintain their fervor to take the gospel to the world. Read more of their comments.

Tuesday
The Power of a Signature

Stephen and Ginger Jordan minister among the Agutaynen people of the Philippines. They have been trying to get everything ready to start building the new church building for the Agutaynen believers, but two signatures were needed to complete the process. Who could have imagined the difficulties that lay in the way of getting those signatures? Pray for the Jordans as they continue with their ministries with the Agutaynen. Read the signature blog.

Wednesday
The Good Ole Days

Macon and Katy Hare have been involved with Ethnos360 for many years in many different capacities. One thing that is a given is that God will provide. Macon said, “Many times since that first year as missionaries, we have found ourselves in impossible situations. Many times Katy and I have looked back to that ... landmark, then taken another step of faith, trusting God for something much bigger than we could handle.” Read about the good ole days.

Thursday
The God Who Answers Prayer

Joel and Andi McMartin minister in West Africa, and recently Joel took a survey trip to Guinea. He wrote how God answered prayer on multiple levels. As they were discussing the plans for the future, the other mission leader shared that “their goal is not to fight the religious group that is there, but to teach the Holy Scriptures in their language. It is not about one religion versus another, but it is about the truths that can be found in the Scriptures and following God on the straight path that He has defined. Upon hearing the answer to this question, the attitude of the religious leader completely changed. He wanted to have the Scriptures and to have them taught and was happy to have them come. We serve an amazing God!” Read Joel’s report.

Friday
Literacy Praise Report

David and Kristen Burson are ministering here in Florida, working on literacy resources for Ethnos360. David said, “Our suite of literacy software [Literacy Starter, Teacher’s Guide and Pre-Literacy] continues to be improved. We rejoice that in November several teams met for a three-week workshop in Brazil to develop a literacy curriculum for each language represented. We are especially grateful for the heroic work of our Portuguese translators, [who were able] to get everything that was needed for the workshop translated into Portuguese, since many missionaries in the conference did not speak English. This was the first workshop where every team was able to leave the conference with a complete literacy curriculum for the language they work in.” Pray for literacy teachers, consultants and the students. Here’s how you can help.

We’re coming up on the Best Day Ever, right? The day we celebrate what makes the God of the Bible different from any other god: He comes down.

Lightning and the Gospel

Chris and Maggie Hostetter were watching as 20 Pal men handled the teaching in an outreach by the Pal church in Papua New Guinea. Upon finishing the Creation to Christ lessons, they talked about End Times with the one hundred or so that were there. As they taught on the plagues of God’s wrath on mankind, it began to rain. The Hostetters said, “Then the world exploded. Lightning struck. The flash of light and the accompanying boom simultaneously assaulted us. … And now, maybe, the people have a little more fear and respect for the power of the Almighty God.” Pray for the Pal church and its outreach. Read the Hostetters’ update.

Tuesday
Kittens, Worry and God

Matt and Karissa Long are waiting in Papua New Guinea for teammates to finish building their new team. Karissa said, “I wish I could say the only thing I obsessively worry about is my cats. However, I am constantly fighting the sin of worry in other areas of my life.  And yes, worry is a sin — not just a personality tendency or flaw. … But I want to choose to believe God.”  Pray for the Longs as they wait on the Lord for His leadership. Read about cats and worry.

Engine In! Propeller on! Fly!

About three months ago, one of Ethnos360 Aviation’s Kodiaks hit a soft spot on a landing strip which took out the nose wheel, the propeller and the engine. Gathering the parts was an international affair, requiring shipping equipment over several continents. On November 30, the Kodiak was flown back to its hangar and will soon be back in the air, serving church planting ministries. Praise the Lord for the aviation team that ministers to missionaries around the world. Pray for continued safety for the pilots and technicians. Read more about Ethnos360 Aviation.

‘Timothy Training’ in Hewa

“We have so much to be thankful for,” said Jonathan and Susan Kopf, ministering among the Hewa of Papua New Guinea. “The new elders kicked off a ‘Timothy training,’ where each elder chose two young believers to help them team-teach through the book of I Timothy (Yanis pictured above with his two “Timothy” trainees, Lupen and Felon).” Pray for the Hewa church as it grows into a thriving church. Read more about the Kopfs’ ministry.

Tuesday
‘Biblical’ Thankfulness

Ian and Julie Fallis minister in Sanford at the home office, working with words all day long. Ian gave some interesting information about Bible translation. “Missionaries translated the Bible into more than 99 percent of all the languages that have a Bible today. Even the tiny number translated by scholars and others would never have existed if First Century missionaries had not spread the Word far and wide. We should be exceedingly grateful that we have the Bible in our language. This is a great time of year to express that gratitude.” Help translate the Bible into more languages.

Wednesday
Watch Your Tone!

Susie Locklin is busy studying about languages and how they work. She said, “Whether or not you ever talk about or hear about tonal languages, I do. And most of the time what people seem to say about them is, ‘It’s like Chinese.’ ... But did you know that over half of the world’s languages are tonal? … As scary as the picture looks, one thing that we’re learning is that tone is weird, but it doesn’t have to be scary. And that’s a very encouraging thought.” Pray for missionaries learning difficult tonal languages. Read Susie’s “tonal” post.

Thursday
Urbana 2018

Looking at how aviation can be used in missions, Ethnos360 Aviation has been invited to participate in Urbana 2018 in St. Louis from December 27-31. Urbana is an eye-opening global missions conference, a place for anyone to hear God’s call — [though they specifically target university students and faculty]. Ethnos360 Aviation said, “Come by and visit us to learn how we assist the church planting ministries of Ethnos360 and like-minded ministries through the use of aviation to achieve the goal of ‘A Thriving Church for Every People.’  We will be at booths 425 and 524.” Read more about Urbana 2018.
