Things that provoke to temptation

Information is not experience There is always a difference between information, and knowledge gained through experience.  A mother reading about giving birth does not have the same perspective as the mother, who is holding her newborn daughter.  Knowing if you studied enough for an exam is always made clear when it is complete.  In life, we continually experience this truth:  Information is not experience. Before we came to Papua New Guinea we had read about it, talked about it and met with people who had lived there.  We cooked food that was different.  We shopped at grocery stores that...

Learning a lost art: Sentence Diagramming

Learning a lost art:  Sentence Diagramming

Why Sentence Diagram? I read a good book recently, “Sister Bernadette’s Barking Dog” by Kitty Burns Florey.  The book is a well written, witty history on the birth and progressive refinement of sentence diagramming.  I think she sums up how most feel about sentence diagramming in the opening pages, 1“Diagramming sentences is one of those lost skills, like darning socks or playing the sackbut, that no ones seems to miss.” My first exposure to sentence diagramming that I remember was at Grace Bible Church in 2011.  I’m sure my third grade elementary school...

Lehman Furlough 2017

Furlough:  October 2017 – July 2018 To say our blog and website have been neglected would be an understatement.  This is my first post in the last five months… Rest assured, we are alive and well in Madang.  Lord willing the topic of furlough will be a good way to break the silence. I remember setting foot in Madang.  It was December 6th 2014.  Our family was tired, excited and ready to get to work.  The idea of furlough was so far in the distance.  Thankfully, we had plenty to do before furlough and praise the Lord we have been busy…  Well, like all things in life the...

Resting and working in Madang

Resting and working in Madang

It has been a busy couple of weeks since we got back from the visit with the Canns in Mareroro.  Knox got sick the day we left and I got sick just two days after him.  In fact, the first week back in Madang was one of the most unproductive we have had in a lot time.  It was very discouraging but showed us we needed to add “resting” to the calendar.  Praise the Lord he is sovereign over such circumstances and we are called to be faithful in the midst of them. After that tiring week the following week was very productive.  The kids wanted to shoot the bow and arrows in the...

Children’s Presentation at EBC

Encouraged by our Kids Our kids participated in a Children’s Sunday service at our local Church in Madang.  Over time we have come to enjoy being a part of this local body.  It has already been over a year since we became regular participants in the body at EBC and we are encouraged to participate in various programs.  The kids practiced what they needed to say for 6 weeks.  The result was them doing a great job in the presentation!  Oh, and it was all in Tok Pisin!  ...
