Serving in Papua New Guinea
We are Derrick and LaShawn Dobbs. We have four girls. Allie is 15, Kara is 14, Macy is 11 and Livia is 8. We left our home state of Tennessee to be missionaries overseas in 2006. We came to live and serve in the country of Papua New Guinea. It is an island to the northeast of Australia. We spent the first year here learning the national language and culture which was big help to our ministry. Our first 9 years we spend working in the Sepik as supply buyers. It was an incredible ministry and we really enjoyed it! But the last year the Lord really put it on our heart to switch ministries and now we have moved to the Highlands Area. We have the incredible privilege of working as Field Member Care for Papua New Guinea! It has been a great transition and we love encouraging and working along side our fellow missionaries! We are thankful the Lord sent us years ago to work here in Papua New Guinea!
