Our mission is to present the gospel, plant a church and translate the Bible in the Menyan language. To this end, we have developed an alphabet for the Menyan language (so we can write a Bible translation) and written literacy lesson books (so the Menyan people can read the Bible.) In the spring of 2018, our team presented the gospel to a first group of about fifty people with great results. Since then we have been teaching, discipling, translating books of the Bible and continuing evangelism.

Our goal is to eventually leave a self-sustaining church in Menya with indigenous teachers and leaders equipped with the Bible in their own language. To achieve this goal, we are partnered with another missionary family in Menya, a network of support missionaries in PNG and a team of supporters at home in America. By God’s grace we are all striving to see his name glorified in the mountains of New Guinea.
