Reaching Tribes, Transforming Lives

At the end of May we hosted a Trainers Forum here in Durham. NTM missionaries who work in training programs from the US, England, Brazil and Bolivia  joined us.  Although we all have our own unique challenges there are so many valuable things that we can glean from each other.  Our purpose was to evaluate the Canadian program, and in the process, each country represented can glean important information that can be taken back and applied to their training program.  Hopefully this moves us in a direction toward unity in values, purpose and methodology, which in turn, facilitates a greater degree of compatibility when the many different graduates meet and work together on the foreign mission field.
We are thankful for our training staff and the part that each one plays on our team to equip our students for the mission field.  This summer we will all be involved in a number of different projects. Holly will continue to invest time into our "Families in Ministry" classes as well as M.K. care.  We are trying to incorporate more activities in our program for children, in order to prepare them for life overseas. I will be investing a lot of time in curriculum development for the fall teaching schedule.  I have also been working closely with our registrar as we process incoming applications.  At this point in time it looks like we will have a full house with all student apartments full.  Thanks so much for praying for more laborers.  We are excited about the potential of what God wants to do in and through this new class that will be joining us the end of August.

Our students worked two full weeks in getting their jungle camp houses up and ready to move in.  This past Saturday was move up day and each one worked hard to pack all their supplies up the hill to what will be their home for the next four weeks.  Please be praying for our students during these next weeks as they will find themselves living in rustic conditions without the modern conveniences that we all are so accustomed to enjoying.  This practicum is always a very stretching and challenging time and yet a time to grow in the Lord and closer as a class.   Many graduates have shared that Jungle Camp was a highlight in their missionary training.
Thank-you for your prayers for our daughter!  Ruth has been offered a job working at Duke University Hospital on the Operating Room Trauma team.  YEA!!!  We are praising the Lord for this amazing opportunity that Ruth has.  But before she packs her bags and heads south, she must first take her NCLEX exam.  She has been studying for the past couple months and I know she would appreciate your prayers as she takes the test first thing tomorrow morning.  There too are many different details that need to be worked out in setting up residency in NC, a major one is getting her nurses license from MI switched over to NC so that she is ready to start work at the end of August.
In the middle of May Titus graduated from high school.  It has been a long journey as he has faced many academic challenges especially in his early years.  But what a joy to see Titus apply himself and work hard on some challenging high school classes, finishing strong.  Titus is taking a year off of school to save up money for college and to learn some valuable "life skills".  We are thankful that Titus found a job working at the Ice Cream Factory.
On May 8th Seth and Camille were blessed with a precious baby boy, Jeremiah Seth Dyck.  We are all very pleased to have a healthy new addition to our family and us grandparents are especially happy to have and to hold this precious little bundle.  This new addition for Seth and Camille certainly is a life changer and I'm sure they would appreciate your prayers as they adjust to Jeremiah's arrival.
Thanks so much for all your prayers and support. The Lord burdened us both many years ago as teenagers to become missionaries.  The Lord led us both to the same Bible School where we met, where we were engaged and married.  That was 30 years ago now as this past week we celebrated another anniversary.  How we thank the Lord for the years he has given us together to serve him.  Thanks for how you have stood behind us and our family through these years.  You have truly blessed our lives.
