...praying about taking a short-term mission trip to...

Laurel and I are really excited about the prospects of going to Mozambique. As in all things, it seems a long way off still, but will sneak up on us quite rapidly. We are praying about taking a short-term mission trip to Mozambique in March of 2002.  This is a survey trip that will help to:
  1. Prepare the ground: Get permission to work, building relationships with government officials and national church leaders, re-establish links with other missions.
  2. Prepare the field: Organizationally, structurally, and strategically.  We plan on leaving our position at the New Tribes Mission Language Institute (NTLI) in May of 2002. We will be traveling to Sao Paulo, Brazil in July where we will be going to school to learn Portuguese.
This stage will last almost a year. At the end of that time, we will return to the U.S. for a brief time before we fly to Mozambique.   We will need extra funds to assist with paperwork, travel costs, and moving transitions in both of these endeavors. Please pray with us about this.

Currently Jason is still working at NTLI as a network technician and help desk. There is much transition as NTLI plans on integrating the language institute with the other mission institutes some time in the next 10 years. He also teaches a computer literacy class as an elective to the students as well. 

Laurel also keeps very busy taking care of the kids and working part time in different areas at NTLI.  This has been a very profitable time of ministry for both Jason and Laurel, and they are very thrilled that we have been able to be here during this time. Our leaving will leave an empty position and we are praying for God to rise up someone to fill our shoes here before we leave.  It would be a real positive thing to be able to train somebody or show him the ropes.

The kids are great. Krista is a very creative writer and artist, which isn’t a trait she gets from me. Kali is in kindergarten at the same school as Krista. She still loves animals ( we still have the bird, but we have gotten rid of our dog). Nicholas, loves to go fishing or just ride his tricycle outside to play.

  We praise God for:  

Guidance and peace in decisions made
Health of our Family
God's provision with support partners

Please pray for:

Increased finances as our expenses increase dramatically
Safety in travels
Wisdom as we make decisions

Martin and Gracia Burnham, missionaries to the Philippines

MANILA, The Philippines (Aug. 2, 2001): The Philippine government's efforts to crack down on supporters of the Abu Sayyaf Group appear to be disrupting the supply structure for those holding hostage several people, including NTM missionaries Martin and Gracia Burnham.
The Burnham children recently made a radio appeal...
to the kidnappers asking them to release their parents, but the kidnappers have not responded so far. In fact, the Abu Sayyaf Group has not made contact with either the Philippine government or Malaysian negotiators, and negotiations have not resumed.
Over the past several days, the kidnappers and the Burnhams have been reported sighted at several locations on Basilan island. While these sightings have not been confirmed, they indicate that the group is having to move quite a bit in order to find support.
While some are raising questions about why the kidnapping has gone on for more than two months, despite the presence of more than 6,000 Philippine soldiers on a small island, NTM continues to...
