Derrick & LaShawn Dobbs

The Dobbs have been serving in Papua New Guinea since 2006. They serve with New Tribes Mission in the Sepik Region. New Tribes Mission’s goal is to reach people who have no access to the gospel. In support of that goal, Derrick’s main job responsibility is supply buyer. Derrick is in constant communication with New Tribes staff located in remote areas so determine their supply needs, purchase items wholesale & arrange delivery. Orders can include items as varied as diesel fuel drums, building supplies, outboard motors, groceries & lp gas bottles. He is also responsible for keeping an accurate inventory, financial records & government paperwork. This important support function makes it possible for language translators & church planters to be able to continue their work in remote villages.

LaShawn partners with him in his work while simultaneously caring for and homeschooling their 3 daughters, Allie, Kara & Macy.
