David and Susan Howard

The Howard’s arrived in Papua New Guinea in 1998 and have been working among the Adzera people since 1999. David serves as a translation consultant for the Wycliffe Bible Translators and mentor to Adzera speakers translating the Scriptures into their mother tongue, and as the team leader for the new Markham Multi-Language Project. He is also a translation consultant, has been involved in training Papua New Guinea Bible translators, and has served in administrative roles to meet short-term needs. Susan works on Adzera literacy projects when home responsibilities allow. She also teaches a literacy class in Ukarumpa and volunteers to meet various other needs in the community. Their goal is to serve with the global body of Christ to advance Bible translation and work together so people can encounter God through his Word. There are more than 2,000 languages still awaiting Bible translation.

The Jesus Film Project

Beginning with a two-hour docudrama about the life of Christ, according to the Gospel of Luke, this film project has been seen in every country of the world and translated into over 1,900 languages. It has evolved into an app that is a full digital library of more than 200 full-length movies, miniseries, and short films produced to help the world know Jesus better. Everything on the app is free to watch, download, and share with anyone you meet, wherever you meet them. Since the Jesus film was first shown in 1979, more than 490 million people have come to know Christ through the ministry of the Jesus Film Project®. This equates to one person every 5.5 seconds. Campus Crusade for Christ oversees this film project.

The Helping Hands Project

Our used Sunday School books, devotional guides, and paperback Bibles are mailed out to missionaries in many parts of the world. Materials are also used to teach English and used in prison ministries.

Presbyterian Frontier Fellowship

We help support Richard Haney, the Executive Director of Frontier Fellowship (PFF). PFF describes itself as “a mission support group that works with congregations to establish indigenous churches among unreached people.” PFF reaches out to believing communities to engage people groups where the good news of Jesus and his kingdom is not yet known. Of the nearly 7.9 billion people alive today, more than two billion have never heard of Jesus. They seek the world’s least-reached places, supporting efforts to establish local churches that can proclaim the Good News of God’s Kingdom to their communities and beyond.
