Meet Team PNG


We are the first team sent out by Grace Bible Church in Tempe, AZ.  Lorie and I are so encouraged to have come to Papua New Guinea with such dear friends.

Below is a brief bio for our teammates. Our prayer is that this will encourage you to pray for all of us as we go together, work together, suffer together, and rejoice together. We would love for you to join our little team in prayer!

The Dodds

Matt & Cameron Dodd

Matt, Cameron, Susanna, Benaiah, Onesimus and Mary

Matt will head up the Bible translation project as well as aid in the Bible teaching. His training includes several classes in biblical Greek and Hebrew. He has led a small group for many years at Grace Bible Church. Cameron, besides homeschooling their four kids, will help our team develop a literacy program. She has a keen eye for editing and studied biblical Greek with Matt.
