Why we are here

The first two weeks of class here at NTMC (New Tribes Mission of Canada) was orientation for all of us. It was during this time we learned about how great the need is for overseas missionaries. Below is one of the charts the speaker provided for us. It shows that there are 7,148 know spoken languages in use today (this does not show languages from the past that are now extinct). Of these languages, 60% (4,218) still have not had the Bible (word of God) translated in there own language.

This chart reconfirms to us that there is still much work to be done to see the gospel advanced to the utter most parts of the earth! Please pray for us as we continue seeking the Lord in our training: that we would stay focused at the task at hand so that we may be well equipped for tribal church planting overseas.
