Our Story

Then Until Now


Jack and Elana Sample took their children, Raymond and Corrie, to Papua New Guinea in July of 1994 to work under the direction of Adventist Frontier Missions in the upper Sepik River region in a village called Tipas.

After returning to the states, Jack has been back six times for various reasons and has longed to return on a more permanent basis.  If you have the time, the following YouTube videos give much of the story as shared in vesper programs at the Stateline SDA Church in Milton Freewater, OR.
