Judith Hedeen was born and raised in a Mennonite colony in the Chaco region of Paraguay, South America. She came to know the Lord at the age of 9 and very soon after that felt the Lord leading her to become a missionary. After graduating from a Canadian high school, Judith attended New Tribes Bible Institute and Missionary Training Center. In 2002 Eric and Judith moved to the Malaumanda tribe, where Eric had served during his first term on the field. Eric and Judith served there until they phased out of the Malaumanda work in June of 2014. During her time in Malaumanda Judith worked to encourage the believing ladies there as well as functioning as a home school mom for their three boys- Stephen, Daniel and Timothy.

Judith and Eric, with their boys, moved out to Lapilo in 2014 and began integrating their lives into the function of that community. Judith helps out in different roles in NTM-PNG including working at the Lapilo Medical Clinic and serving on the Numonohi Management Team.

Robyn Parry grew up in the Philippines where her parents are missionaries with New Tribes Mission.  She grew up in a remote tribal location and was there to see the first church plant for that people group when she was 8. At the age of 18 she moved back to Australia.  Robyn became a believer at a young age and having had first hand experience of tribal life and seeing the needs of remote locations, has always felt the Lord leading her to tribal work.  In 2010, Robyn, her husband Dave and their three kids moved to PNG to the Sepik area and in 2012, they moved into a remote tribal location in that area.  Due to health reasons, they couldn’t continue the work in a remote location, but in 2015 moved to Lapilo where they have been involved in support work with the mission ever since.
Robyn is involved in the purchasing department and is currently also serving on the Numonohi Management Team.
