Dear Friends and Family,
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY, to all of the mothers! We trust its a wonderful
day for you.
Thank you for investing in and sacrificing for a ministry that will
produce lasting “fruit,” that will endure for all eternity; tribal
people coming to know Jesus as their Savior. Yes, “It will be worth it
all when we see Jesus.” Thank you for allowing us to be “co-laborers
together with God,” with you.
1 Cor. 3:9
recently read the following news from Venezuela, the country where Linda
previously served before coming to the NTM Headquarters:
"We came because the leaders of our villages sent us. We
need help...schools, medicines and we need God's Word."
Nine Yanomamis walked eight days through the jungle to ask for
"We need to live differently," they continued. "We're scared of
what's happening around us. We're being left behind."
"Will you come," they begged, "if we make an airstrip?"
The desperation they showed and the questions they asked NTM missionary
Marg Jank would be repeated a few hours later to her son, Bobby, and NTM
missionary pilot, Steffan Pyle.
Steffan couldn't understand the language but he did understand the body
language, the gestures and expressions. He knew, in no uncertain terms,
that these people were serious and desperate.

don't speak your language well yet."
Jank could only promise to present their request to Christians back
home, and pray that God would send someone to answer their plea.
The words still echo through Steffan's mind, "We're being left
Pray that God will provide laborers to this group of Yanamamo people of
Venezuela as well as to other unreached tribes throughout the world.
youngest son, David, is now finished for this term with his subjects in
both Cisco and Novell Networking. He took all of his finals already.
second son, Jeffrey, finishes his FEAT (Florida Electrical Apprentice
Training) this week. He cannot get his Electrical Journeymans License
until another year from now, when he has more hours in, and takes that
test. Then the Master Journeymans Test is a couple years after that
with yet more hours in, etc. Thats when he can pull permits for jobs,
and is at the top of the ladder, electrical-wise.
Thank you again for your prayers for us, and for your faithful gifts of
support that we appreciate so very much. The Lord is truly using you in
our lives and ministry.
With gratefulness to all
