After serving the Lord in church planting ministries in New Zealand for about 38 years we moved to Goshen in 2005. Since then we make use of every opportunity to promote church planting in New Zealand. 

We have also been privileged to return to New Zealand several times in the past few years and minister in each of the churches where we once served, as well as some new ones. Our hearts desire is to return to New Zealand once again to minister. We were planning to return in July 2013 for the 20th anniversary of Waitakere Bible Church (the last church we were privileged to begin) but will not be able to. Ted was diagnosed with kidney disease in October 2012, requiring a stent to the kidney that has to be changed every three months.

We keep informed of what the Lord is doing, via email and Facebook. Our hearts desire for the people of New Zealand is that they might be saved, growing and serving the Lord. 

God is good. "He knows the way that I take, and when He has tried me, I shall come forth as gold!"

We thank each of you and the Lord for your faithful prayers, letters, cards, emails, and financial support since before we first went to New Zealand in 1967. Anything that has been accomplished for the Lord in New Zealand, is because of you. Praise Him!

Ted Cripe was ushered into Heaven on April 13, 2019.
