Between 1996 and 2011, Tim and Diana and family served in PNG doing pioneer church planting, Bible translation and medical work among the remote Nakui people group. Tim’s field experience included field leadership, church planting consultancy, orientation and member care. Diana taught literacy, trained village medical aid post workers, functioned in orientation and member care, and served as field homeschool coordinator. Since 2012 Tim has been training international pastors in Africa and India and Diana is an R.N.
Tim and Diana joined the SA team in September, 2018. They are excited to use their gifts and experience by developing and delivering SA’s pre-field and on-field Orientation programs to new SA missionaries. They will also be helping SA implement key strategic outreach and church engagement initiatives in PNG. Another facet to their ministry will be to continue the Nakui Bible translation, now about 40% done, toward completion.
