September, 2015, Newsletter

Something we are trying lately that has helped us get our newsletters out a little more often is to get them printed at mailed out from our headquarters in Marion, Indiana. Thanks to the World Gospel Mission Publishing Department for their enormous help there!

Here is the September, 2015 edition of the Bowen Arrow.

Podcast on Missionary Language Learning

"Language learning is much more than a mental exercise. It’s a spiritual exercise. It reminds you every day that you’ve been called to enter a world that’s completely different from your own, and that entering requires sacrifice."

I feel pretty strongly about missionary language learning! Listen to this podcast to hear my thoughts.

Newsletter Time Again

Well, no improvement on frequency of newsletter updates. Our latest one is linked in the left column, under the "links" section.

This time it took me about a month to get our newsletter out, what with design holdups, software glitches, printing, updating mailing lists, FedExing the envelopes to the U.S. to be mailed. In view of how much work goes into getting this out every time, I'm looking into having the whole process done in the U.S. in the future. My thinking has always been that people want to receive a letter from us, and not from our mission. But the clunkiness of the process is forcing us that direction.

For now, though, read our August, 2013 newsletter, posted on Scribd.

August 2012 Newsletter

Yes, it's true. Shamefully true. It's been a year since we last posted a newsletter on here. I realized recently that one of the most complex tasks we perform is getting a newsletter out. It probably wouldn't be that way if I weren't such a perfectionist. So you can pray for me.

In the meantime, here's the latest "Bowen Arrow". Read it for all the updates we haven't posted on this blog.

Latest Family Portrait

Our latest family portrait, including Joe, the latest arrival.

Latest Bowen Arrow

A link to our latest newsletter is on the left hand side of the page.

My current excuse for not posting for a while is the addition of a new member to the family and the changes that brings. Is it unfair to blame things on such a small person who can't defend himself?

Watch this spot for more updates in the near future.
