We went to go see an old WWII plane in the jungle.
You might be a missionary kid if…
Your parents pack a suitcase for vacation and you assume that you’re moving.
You see fish in a pond at a restaurant and ask if that’s what we’re eating.
You are baffled as to why your mom wants you to wear shoes for going to a store.
You know words from more than one language, and have wandered around the house saying “diarrhea” in your second language.
You frequently run around shirtless in February.
You think your mom doesn’t know how to drive.
You get cold when it’s 70 degrees out.
You get confused when you hear about kids that have a teacher that isn’t their mom.
Yes, those are all true about our kids. They have definitely gotten into a rhythm of what is normal life in PNG. They love spending their days running around outside with their friends, and we are so thankful that they are thriving here.
We’ve gotten into rhythm here too. We continue to spend our time teaching at the school, working on our team ministry strategy, homeschooling Ty, helping lead an Awana ministry, bringing missionaries to the airport, and just doing daily life. We are of course anxious to be able to start our ministry in a tribe, but for now we are thankful for how the Lord is using us to serve here.
Please continue to pray with us about God’s leading and provision for our future ministry, and pray that we can be faithful in our current ones.
Till all know,
Matt, Karissa, Ty, and Wyck
The highlight of our month was Karissa’s cousin and her husband coming to visit us. What a joy to have family visit us halfway across the world!
Ty turned 5 this month! Where has the time gone? Wyck helped him blow out his candles.
– We had a nice visit with Karissa’s cousins
– Karissa is really enjoying teaching
– Our team strategy talks are going well
– That Karissa can do a good job teaching, helping the kids to learn what they need to learn, and showing them God’s love
– That God will provide a third family for us to partner with
– That God will guide our future steps
