Serving in Papua New Guinea

Sean and Jinny both graduated from the University of Arkansas and Jinny received her Master’s degree from John Brown University. They are die-hard Razorback fans, but even more die-hard for God and the unreached peoples of the world.

They met in Fayetteville, AR and when they started dating, it didn’t take long for both of them to know that they would spend the rest of their lives together serving God overseas.  Less than a year later, they were married and a few months later entered into training with New Tribes Mission, first in Waukesha, WI for Bible school and then at the Missionary Training Center.

The Richards family is now 5, with 3 little boys, Zeke, Gabe, and Ash.   They are now living in the mountains of Papua New Guinea.  They have learned the national language of Tok Pisin and are praying through options to move into an unreached tribe. Their hope is to learn the tribal language, teach and translate the Bible, and plant a mature, indigenous church! Please pray for them as they seek out a team of families and discern which people group God would have them work amongst.
