Thats Pidgin for “We’re Close to gathering $5000,” for shipping our truck to PNG! Time for an update to our peoples out there who are so faithful in supporting us! Time is getting short for the Simmons family before we head back to Papua New Guinea on August 2nd! We are in packing and planning mode now. Melody is like a school Marm making lists and checking them twice, or thrice or… A lot! She’s great, I don’t know what I’d do with out a wife who cares for our basic needs as she does. If the planning and packing were up to me we’d get back to PNG and find out we had no underwear or something. I digress. What I really want to talk about is the progress on raising funds for shipping our “Truck” to PNG. We are trying to raise $5000 to ship this beast over in July so that it’ll arrive sometime before Christmas. So far we’ve raised around $2800, which is Awesome! We’re over half way there. I’d like to ask all of you to please pray that the rest of the needed funds come in by July 1st so we can pay the shipping company and begin that process. Having a reliable truck in PNG will play a vital part in the daily routines of our ministry. We make daily trips to town for supply runs, to School to pick up the kids and frequent trips to Bush locations to support our Church Planters. Thanks to everyone who has helped us prepare this vehicle for service, we couldn’t do it with out your prayers and gifts. There will be more to come on the details or our departure shortly. Thanks again to everyone who has partnered with us in ministry.
