Hume PNG Fundraiser Tanks

8.20.14 Hume PNG Fundraiser Tanks

Hey Everyone!

Great way to support ministry to Missionary Kids.  Hume Lake Christian Camp is heading to Papua New Guinea to minister to New Tribes Missions Missionary Kids in October.  They will be running a Hume Lake style camp for the MKs who are living there with their families.

Bree and I were blessed to be on this team in 2012 and saw first hand how important these opportunities are.

The team is selling Hume PNG Tanktops to raise support for the trip.
-The cost for the tank is $20. [$2.50 for shipping]
-The tank design has the PNG national bird & the Hume Lake drop that derives from the mission statement to be a drop wherever lives are touched and that that would have a ripple effect to spread out & touch more lives.

You can order by emailing Eryn Holm at

NTM MK Retreat 2014

8.11.14 NTM MK Retreat

This August, our New Tribes Mission MK Care Team hosted an college-age MK Retreat in Michigan.  What a blessing it was to fellowship together with so many of our NTM MKs all at once!   30 students from around the midwest and east coast made their way to the retreat and had a blast.

Our goals for the retreat were to:
-Have a relaxing few days before school/work starts back up for the students.
-Meet other MKs that have similar experiences and challenges.
-Get to know our MK Care team.
-Eat well and have fun.

…I think our goals were met!

Practical Living Skills Trip

10.20.13 Practical Living


We recently had an opportunity to go on a three-day Practical/Survival skills trip.  The purpose was to help equip New Tribes Mission missionaries as they live and or visit remote locations in the deep jungles where unreached people groups often live.


We knew it was going to be a doozy of a trip when we learned we would be hiking everything in (including food) and would have to find our base camp via GPS coordinates, map, and compass.  The experience was great! … fun may not be the best way to describe if I’m honest, but VERY beneficial for sure.  Through we had rain and chilly temps that dipped into the 30’s at night, we had a chance to learn and practice a ton.

Very glad NTM values equipping and training so much… It makes a huge difference.

We made it to MTC!

We Made It to MTC!

Wow… we are amazed by God once again.  We have officially started classes at the New Tribes Missionary Training Center in Missouri and we could not be more excited. This has been a “next step” for some time and it has finally begun.  What really amazes us is how God provided for us to get here.  Last May, we looked at the increasingly intimidating mountain of financial support that would be needed and… we shook in our boots. All we knew was this was the next step and if He wanted us there, He would have to get us there.  Well, we watched as God used many of YOU to partner with us to send us to Papua New Guinea this last October and now here to the training.  We wanted to thank all of you who prayed for us and came behind us financially these last few months.  We are here in class because of what God did through you and we are cannot wait to dive in.  This is some of best missionary training in the world and we are humbled to be apart of it.

classThe incoming spring semester classes are typically on the smaller side and our class is no exception.  There are nine of us in our class, but boy are we diverse!  We have three married couples and three single ladies.  We have Germany, Ecuador, Argentina, Brazil, Papua New Guinea, New Jersey, Illinois, and California all represented in our small class! We all take the same subjects together and get to join in with the other classes on campus a few times a week for chapel and other events. 

Though small, our apartment is great! Plenty of room for us to live, study, and have folks over.  The campus is situated on a cove of the Lake of the Ozark and is beautiful.  Lots of places to enjoy the outdoors once it gets a bit warmer! 😉

Thanks again for sending us to training! We are confident in the Lord that we are in the right place and look forward to learn all He has for us here.
