The Return to Papua New Guinea

We are only 43 days from our return flights to Papua New Guinea. The time God gave us has been fuller than we could have imagined. We visited with family and friends in so many different contexts and locations. Greer, Belle and Knox experienced foods they had forgotten, sat in a movie theater again, and played new sports with friends. We are refreshed, built up and almost ready to pack up and go. Lorie and I asked the kids yesterday if they were ready to return back to PNG. With a single voice they shouted, “YES!” What an encouraging response! We hoped that their time in the United States...

A home of our own

We are happy to report that about three weeks ago we moved into a rental home in Gilbert, AZ!  It has been 1500 sqft of restful beauty.  God provided couches, beds, kitchen supplies and towels through dear friends at Grace Bible Church, Grace Community Church and others.  Smedly Yates and Adam Bossom were quick last minute helpers that moved a TON of items in just under 2 hours!  We are still trying to get “settled” but the time that we have had thus far has been very sweet. When we arrived back in October, we moved in with our dear friends Josh and Julie Kellso.  Their home had plenty of...

One Christian fad you should pickup: Bible Reading

One Christian fad you should pickup:  Bible Reading

Fads Come and Go… Although I have only existed for a mere 35 years, I have seen my share of Christian fads.  Let me name a few:  Experiencing God, Velvet Elvis, The Prayer of Jabez, the Shack, and of course The Purpose Driven Life.  Sometimes the fad is biblically sound and theologically clear.  Other times, the teaching will focus too pointedly on a single attribute of God, that the fullness of his attributes are missed.  Sometimes… the fad is heresy.  One thing we can always count on is that there are more “fads” on the horizon and that is not going to change...

Visiting with a dear friend:  Joey Tartaglia

There’s just something refreshing about breaks in regular patterns of life.  It’s even sweeter when that break in life is a sweet friend from the States!  Joey Tartaglia came to PNG to give the Canns their third language check in nDo.  What’s great is that we had the opportunity to visit with him for a few days before he flew into Mareroro, and we have several days with him before he departs this Friday. Joey is a director of Finisterre Vision.  He is also the one who trained us for PNG.  This always makes for easy conversations, recalling fond memories and a lot of...
