Cassidy serves in a role in which he supports the managers of all youth-related departments in our mission center. This includes Day Care, the Children’s Home, Youth Ministries, a Teen Center, and two schools (grades PreK-12). Altogether, there are more than 270 students that are ministered to. The majority of those students are children from missionary families, and there are also some Papua New Guinean students. Cassidy enjoys being able to encourage the principals, teachers, and other youth workers to be creative in the ways they pour into the lives of students.
Kari works alongside our clinic medical staff to ensure that all missionaries and visitors coming to the mission center in PNG have received the needed medical clearances to keep themselves and our community as healthy as possible. Kari enjoys working with the missionaries and visitors in this capacity, aiming to reduce stress and increase ease to which travelers make it to PNG to serve and encourage.
In Kari’s Scripture Publications role, she supports translation teams who are ready to publish the newly translated Scriptures completed in their language project. Kari works as the coordinator for several aspects of the publication process for printing written Scripture: organizational requirements, project funding requests, design quotes, formatting guidelines, illustration copyrights, and correspondence with the overseas printing company. The Scripture Publications role allows Kari the incredible blessing of interacting with teams as they approach huge milestones in their language translation project – whether that is publishing a couple books of the Bible, a New Testament, or a whole Bible!
