Jobes on a mission
Forging Ahead
<<First Name>>,

How would you communicate God's message to someone who has never had the opportunity to hear it?  That question has been on my mind a lot as we've worked through the orientation classes of our first week at the Missionary Training Center.  The gospel speaks for itself, right?  But what if that person doesn't speak your language?  What if he or she doesn't understand your culture?  How can you communicate the gospel accurately when your understanding of the world is worlds apart?

Roach, Missouri

We have just moved to what is possibly the worst-named town in America.  Roach, MO.  But just past the Post Office (just about the only thing in Roach), tucked into the scenic Ozark valleys, you will find our small apartment at New Tribes Mission's Missionary Training Center (  Our time at the MTC will be focused on the very questions I asked above.  We will study how to efficiently learn an unwritten language, how to study cultures far different from our own, and how to effectively communicate across cultural lines.  It will be an intense time of learning, but also an amazing opportunity to see God work through men and women of vast experience to speak into our lives.  We are excited to see how the Lord will grow us!

We Want You!

We want you to join us!  There are 2100+ unreached people groups in the world (comprising millions of individuals!) that have never had the chance to hear of God's salvation through Christ.  In Matthew 28:18-20 Jesus Christ put his church on a mission to give every last nation, language, and people the opportunity to hear his "good news."  We would absolutly love the opportunity to share with you how you can join us in the field, pray with us during our training and future ministry, or partner with us financially.  Please let us know if you are interested in hearing more (contact info can be found on our prayer card on the right).

Your's in Christ,
