Prayer Points

Hello! We hope you have all enjoyed your summer. By now, you have received our initial letter about our exciting, upcoming ministry in Papua New Guinea. In June, we attended a week and a half of training at New Tribes Mission’s headquarters in Sanford, FL. We were already excited, but now even more so! We cannot wait to move forward and begin our ministry.            
            There are still about 2,500 people groups unreached in the world today—millions of people are isolated from the Good News about their Messiah. New Tribes Mission exists to clearly present the Gospel to unreached people in their own language and culture. They disciple believers and partner with them to plant healthy, biblical congregations and to reach out to other tribes and villages. We will be playing a vital role in reaching the unreached.
            We have a monthly ministry budget to reach, as well as one-time expenses, such as passports, visas, and plane tickets. We need prayer and financial partners. When you pray and give, you are a vital link in helping the unreached hear the Good News!
We would love to share with you ways in which you can be a part of our team. We specifically need people to partner with us now so that we will be able to wrap things up here in the US and be ready to head to Papua New Guinea early next year. Tom’s job is not flexible, and he will only have employment until the end of September. We need committed monthly supporters so that we can make this transition to full time ministry in the next month.
            Also be in prayer as we have been on the waiting list to adopt a baby in the state of Georgia. We would like to move to Pennsylvania sometime this winter in order to continue building our prayer and financial support base. Pray that things would move forward very soon with an adoption placement.
            If you wish to give financially, you can make a one-time donation, or give monthly. There are several ways that you can give to us:
1.     Use the attached Electronic Funds Transfer form. Instructions are on the form.
2.     Mail your tax deductible donation to: New Tribes Mission, 1000 E. First Street, Sanford, FL 32771.  Attach a note stating that it is for the ministry of Tom & Jenny McBratney. Please do not write on the check.

Thank you for standing with us! We cannot go without each and every one of you praying and giving generously to our ministry. May the Lord richly bless you and keep you!

~Tom, Jenny, Michael, Daniel, and Savannah Joy
