"Happy is that people, whose God is the Lord."

Psalm 144:15


September 2005


Dear Co-Laborers,


The sad events after Hurricane Katrina roared up the Gulf of Mexico this past week have certainly left us all numb with disbelief. The utter destruction is almost beyond words. Night after night we have all watched the dramatic and heroic rescue of thousands of helpless fellow Americans take place before our eyes. Never has the little poem that we all know so well been truer: "Only one life, 'twill soon be past. Only what's done for Christ will last."


Thank you for making an eternal investment in the ministry of taking the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to tribal people around the world. We appreciate those who faithfully pray for us as well as for those who share financial gifts of support. These gifts that make it possible for us to continue on, month after month in serving with New Tribes Mission. Words seem inadequate to tell you how much you mean to this ministry. Truly, "We are laborers together with God." 1 Cor. 3:9.


Thank you for praying along with us regarding the "step of faith" that we recently took in having 4 trees removed from our yard; two of which were huge pine trees, and two large palm trees, not to mention many branches of other large trees. All in all, the cost of having these trees and branches removed was considerably more than we first thought. (Thank you again.) We are thankful for you who have prayed for us regarding this need. We now feel much better prepared for a hurricane, should one come through Sanford, like the three that crisscrossed our city in central FL directly last year.


We thought we would enclose some testimonies from tribal people around the world who have recently come to know Jesus as their Savior. It is a wonderful blessing and encouragement to be involved in this on-going, life-changing ministry.


Once again, thank you for your partnership with us. Have a wonderful day.



In Christ,



John & Linda McGhee

"All the nations You have made will come and worship before You, O Lord;

they will bring glory to Your name, For You are great and do marvelous deeds;

You alone are God."

Psalm 86:9,10



Tribal Testimonies from around the world


A man

from the Solong tribe, Papua New Guinea:


"I never really understood the Bible until this year. The missionary is teaching us the Bible in a way all of us can clearly understand."



Mamaduba Bangura

from the Mixe Fore tribe, Guinea


"God brought you to me to teach me the Word of God; I didn't go looking for it. If someone is involved in anything else other than Jesus, they should follow Jesus. They should put their trust in Him. He is God's Son."




from the Yagaria tribe, Papua New Guinea


"I used to fear death so much. Now I think, 'Wow! When I die, I'll be with the Lord in His wonderful place!"




Nghodhiou from the Manjack tribe, Senegal


"I decided to trust Jesus as my Savior, and immediately I felt like an invisible burden had been lifted."
