VBS at Shelbina First Baptist

VBS at Shelbina First Baptist

In case some of you have been wondering we are still alive.  We’ve just been keeping our heads down as the dust settles from the chaos of furlough preparations and planning.  Home assignment has presented its own set of challenges that have at times seemed a bit overwhelming.  Coming from the Third world to the First world isn’t as simple as some may think.  For example, our children were fascinated with the moving sidewalks and escalators in ...

This bush house wast completed in 2 weeks!

Hello all,

It’s been quite some time since my last update so I thought I’d send one out.  We’ve been busy, busy, busy since our last newsletter so there’s a ton of stuff to say, but you’d all probably be bored to tears if I tried to tell it all so I’ll just hit the highlights for now.  So far this year, I’ve had the privilege of going on several bush trips to encourage ...

View from our room at the Resort

Wow, its been a long time since I posted last.  I’m truly sorry for the delay, but in my defense things have been hopping around here.  So many things have happened in the past 12 months that I think a brief year end review is in order.  As you all know, we will have been here in PNG one year as of February 23rd… I can hardly believe it.  The Lord has been so ...

Hearing the word at a PNG church.

Hello to all my stateside friends and family.  We had the wonderful opportunity to hear a message from a New Guinea pastor this morning.  It was an English speaking service with some pidgin mixed in here and there.  It was good message, and the singing was well done two.  We sang a round of Hymns with the guitar and then with the piano.  We really enjoyed hearing the word preached in and to a ...
