The Ellis Family


Do you know someone interested in missions? Have them join us on Sunday night for an online event to learn more about serving in Bible Translation.
One of the side benefits of being a missionary is being able to know some amazing kids. The picture below is a painting (not a photo!) done by our PNG neighbor, Joel Vanderduys. Joel grew up in Ukarumpa and has returned back to his passport country of Australia. He is a phenomenal artist! The thank you cards we are sending out are prints of a series he did of children in PNG. Check out his page to see more and find out how you can get some of his work! #artbyjoel

The Ellis Family

We are heading to Papua New Guinea with Wycliffe Bible Translators to help bring the Word of God to the Bibleless People.

Mission: Support the work of Bible Translation through computers and administration.

A New Year -
2019 has been a year of the unexpected, so what does 2020 hold for our family and ministry?

Discouraged but not Defeated - Discouragement is very real when we focus on our current circumstances.

Only 10 more! -
Join us in praying for 1 new partner each day for the next 10 days.

Thankfulness on Giving Tuesday-
It may be Giving Tuesday, but we want to focus on our gratitude for all that our Father has done. This year has been the year of the unexpected, yet as we look back, there is so much for which we are thankful.

God Is Not Finished! -
We are thankful that our God is not yet finished in our lives or in the lives of those in Papua New Guinea and around the world.

We have been given a challenge. Will you help us meet it? -
