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.

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...
