Thank you for praying! We know the Lord has a perfect plan! I wanted to send out a quick update to let you know that Ned was not able to leave for PNG on January 10th. He tested positive for Covid. His only symptoms have been a runny nose which we assumed were just normal allergies. We had to cancel his flights and will have to wait for a negative test before he can book a new flight plan. He will test again next week. A year ago when we all had Covid it took a month to get a negative test. Hopefully since Omicron is so much less severe the time to get a negative test will be less. We have to reapply for permission to enter PNG so pray that the new permission will come through quickly. The location where he will be doing translation consultant checks for two different language groups is quite remote and there are only flights into the airstrip every two weeks or so. He was supposed to fly in on January 24th and now we are hoping he can fly in on February 8th. We would appreciate your prayers that Ned could get a negative test fairly quickly and be able to rebook flights at not too great of an expense.
We are very thankful for each one of you who stands with us!
