Dear faithful prayer partners,
Thank you everyone for continuing to pray for us. It’s been a profitable week. We have been able to get through all of our totes and storage. We have weeded some things, rearranged, repacked, and started laying out the “moving truck.” Thank you also for praying regarding the situation with the public holiday for PNG’s first Prime Minister. Because of that, things are going to happen really fast once we are released from quarantine. The plan is for the moving truck to be here first thing on Wednesday. Lord willing have it loaded by noon. Then I will go with the truck to the coast. Robin will finish things up here, then join me by plane on Thursday. Here’s how you can pray this week.
- Pray the weather is favorable on Wednesday.
- Pray we are able to get everything loaded in time to be able to make the 8 hour drive while it’s sill mostly light.
- Pray for safety on the road on Wednesday. It’s only about 250 miles, but it will take us 8 hours to do the drive with the truck.
- Pray that we can get settled into life and ministry quickly.
- Pray we can finish up the rest of sorting, packing and organizing so we are ready when the truck arrives on Wednesday morning.
We have enjoyed the many visitors this past week, as different ones of our missionary community have stopped by to visit. We also had some of our PNG friends come by too. As we visited with our PNG friends, telling them that now that we have a grand child, we feel old.
They were kind enough to inform us that you can’t call yourself “lapun” (the Pidgin term for old person) until your grand kids are teenagers! So, I guess that means we have a few years before we will be “lapun!”
Next week we will have pictures to share of the move. We are looking for to unpausing life and opening this new chapter. The next few weeks / months are going to be quite challenging as we try and learn this new role, and get a handle on the scope of all that needs to be done.
Thank you for your faithful prayers as we make this transition. They are felt, welcomed, and much needed. Thank you.
David and Robin Watters
