The Lord is... not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

2 Peter 3:9


August 2009

Dear Friends and Family, 

Thank you so very much for your support of our ministry.  We thank the Lord for His provision to us through you, and for your faithful prayers.  We are truly grateful for you, and for the way the Lord meets our needs.  All praise to Him.  Great is His faithfulness! 

One of our fellow NTM missionary families who work in the jungles of the Philippines has been having quite a Gospel outreach to some of the Banwaon tribal children who play with their children.  Each day between 2 and 20 children can be found on their front porch happily playing with Legos and toy cars.  These tribal children have had a chance to hear the Gospel and many of them have put their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior.  Each week they have a Bible lesson, teaching chronologically from God’s Word.  God is indeed building His Church throughout the world.  Praise His Name that this includes children of the Banwaon tribe.

And speaking of children, our own children, Jeffrey and his wife, Stefanie, just arrived back in Florida, after a lovely two week vacation.  They visited Grandma and Grandpa Hansen up in northern Wisconsin, and they then traveled on to a family reunion for Stefanie’s family at her parents’ home in central Wisconsin.  Stefanie met and renewed acquaintances with family from our side, and Jeffrey met more of Stefanie’s family, also spending time with her siblings in Chicago.

We know we wrote you all about David’s graduation from University in May.  Then, we have told you about Sarah and her family last month, but we haven’t mentioned our son, Tim.  We have seen him twice this year: once in the early spring for a week’s vacation, and also in May for David’s graduation. Tim is working at Cherrydale Baptist Church in Arlington, Virginia, as their technology and facility manager.  Tim really enjoys his work.

We asked you to please pray with us regarding some big changes to our Medical Plan in our recent letter.  We are now in the final stages of decision making and we would appreciate your prayers.  One thing that is certain, we will continue to have lots of work in our busy Medical Plan Office.  It is our prayer that the Medical Plan provides the best possible health insurance for our New Tribes Mission missionaries.  We thank the Lord for the privilege to help our missionaries with their health needs.

Thank you again for all you do for us. 


In Christ,


John & Linda

P.S.  John just had retina surgery this week in his left eye.  The retina was torn but fortunately the specialist was able to repair it before it became detached.


Then on Wednesday of this coming week, August 12, he will be having cataract surgery on his right eye with a different specialist.  His eyes, especially the right one, has been bothering him and getting worse for the past few months.   So we would thank you for praying that all goes well, and that his vision is restored to normal once again.


Thank you for praying for us, and for John in particular.
