Sunday morning, August 23rd, my home church did an annual reflections service. The reflections service is one of my favorite church days of the year because members of the congregation give a recap and tell stories of mission-based events Northlake Baptist Church has been a part of throughout the year, which, thankfully, is a lot to squeeze into an hour. For me, it creates excitement to hear stories of how God is working at Northlake and it also creates an awareness of some events I didn’t know took place and might want to be involved with.
While my mom and dad were on a date at Costco (yes, Costco; they find pleasure in the mundane moments), they picked up a DVD titled YembiYembi, a movie about Brookes and Nina Buser moving from San Diego to—you guessed it!—the YembiYembi tribe in Papua New Guinea. It’s a thirty minute documentation about culture differences and similarities, church planting, literacy education, and the importance of Bible translation. As the video plays, some ponderable quotes are shown. Many of them can be seen under the tab titled pictures. Though we have the video on DVD, it can be watched by anyone online at http://www.yembiyembi.org/index.htm.
Thank you to those who have given toward my PNG trip through financial support, character references, Skype training, making sure I understand what all the paperwork means, processing the paperwork, speaking with me in Tok Pisin, and your PRAYERS. I really appreciate it.
