We’re Josiah & Rachel. We are ordinary people who serve an extraordinary God. Like every follower of Christ, we have the responsibility and privilege of sharing Christ with the world and making disciples of Jesus everywhere we go. We believe that we are here on earth to know Christ and to make Him known throughout all the earth, especially among those who have no access to the Gospel. God has burdened our hearts to do Bible translation so that an unreached people group can have God’s Word in their heart language.
We are career missionaries with New Tribes Mission, serving in Papua New Guinea. Several tribes in Papua New Guinea have heard the Gospel and now these tribal believers want to be missionaries, taking this Good News to the tribes near them. Our heart is to partner with a team of these tribal missionaries and assist them as they learn a new language and culture, teach God’s Word foundationally, and disciple new believers in order to plant mature, self-sustaining churches. Since Scripture is so crucial in the church planting process, one of our main tasks would also be to translate the Bible into this tribal language.
