MARIAMA VILLAGE CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
We are so very excited that this Mariama Private School is up and running. Soma and Michelle are doing an amazing job teaching 120 Mariama and Anganamai village students reading, writing, math and Bible everyday! Pray about how you can be involved in helping these village kids get an education in the middle of the jungle. WE NEED HELP! Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. If you would like to donate to the Mariama Village Christian School you can write a check to:

Sanford, FL 32771
Write in the memo:PNG Mariama Ministry
All checks written with this in the memo help us pay to keep this little school running. All donations are tax deductible.
We count it an amazing privileged to be the voice of the over 2,000 people groups that still have yet to hear the Gospel n their own language. Holly and I and Bryce and Brock got to visit Holly's brother and his wife in the jungle of PNG. Many folks here in the USA say to us, "There are lots of people here in the US that are lost. We need to minister to them." Although this is true, many in first world countries are lost, they are NOT unreached. The UNREACHED are in another category because they will never know who God is or hear of His grace and mercy in this broken, fallen and sinful world unless someone who KNOWS Him goes to learn their language and culture and tells them of this important news! All that to say, we are grateful for the privilege and responsibility to be doing the work of raising up the next generation of missionaries.
Brant got his club foot fixed. This is our Brandt with his little name sake...Brant Keno. Little Brandt Keno got his club foot fixed at a town clinic right in PNG. Thanks so much for your help in getting him flown out to the clinic and back into the village again after two months of being in a PNG clinic to get his foot corrected. We have two more little toddlers that have club feet that need corrected as well. If you would like to donate to their transportation to the clinic and back, make a check out to Ethnos360 and put in the Memo:PNG Mariama Ministry. We will make sure these next two little kids get to the clinic where they can get fixed up.
