Location: Papua New Guinea
I live with my wife and three daughters in Papua New Guinea. I work as a missionary with an organization called New Tribes Mission. We learn to speak the various languages of the country, create alphabets for those who have no written language, conduct literacy classes for the people, do Bible translations, and teach through the Bible as well and try to establish mature, indigenous churches...that's it in a nutshell.
I've never been too great at any sort of carpentry, but I sure do enjoy working with wood. Living in a remote jungle location sort of makes you have to learn a few things and I have been finding a wealth of information and ideas on this site...so thanks!
Not that much else to tell. I look forward to getting to know all of you.

The front of our house is built four feet off the ground (the back is about 7 1/2 feet up.) For the first four months we simply had a ramp made out of one of the rounds from a tree I had previously slabbed. The ramp was a pain, but it was just a t...
I had written an earlier post about slabbing the wood I needed to build my family’s home in Papua New Guinea. Well, we got our home “finished” (I use that world very loosely) and just thought you guys might like to see some pictu...
I live and work in Papua New Guinea with some of the world’s most remote people groups. Very soon, my family and I will be moving in with a tribal group called, Hewa. I first have to build our house, though. In order to do that I have to sla...
