The biggest change brings the opportunity
to have the biggest encounter with Jesus. (Kristen Strong)
Home Assignment Coming To An End
It’s been almost two years now since we came back to Germany from PNG. Who would have thought back then that we would stay here that long? Well, God knew absolutely everything. He knew about Covid-19 and all the changes this would cause in our lives. We don’t understand it all but we sure know the ONE who understands, who makes no mistake and even uses absolutely everything for our best!
Back To PNG
Well, we have big news for you all! It looks like we actually get to go back to PNG very soon!!! We received the special entry permit from the government of PNG and we’re also able to purchase the tickets for our trip back!!! IF the three of us will test negative for Covid-19 then we will start our trip back on June 15th! After three flights (21h altogether) we will arrive in the capital of PNG. There we will get picked up by our own Mission’s plane and then brought directly to our house on the Mission’s Center where we will then spend two weeks in quarantine. On one hand we are so excited about going back but on the other hand the thought of leaving our two older girls is quite heavy on us. Our hearts are half over there with the ministry, our co-workers and the Dinangat church; but still the other big part of our hearts is with our girls which we will have to say good-bye to. It’s just both – so good and so hard! On some days I am honestly not sure what to do with those mixed feelings, it’s just something we will have to take day by day.
To let go of something or someone also means we are holding on to something else. That is what we want to do! We are holding on to God’s great hand! He has carried us through good-byes so faithfully so many times before, He will do it again! Thank you for your PRAYERS for us in this!
Rebekka And Tobi’s WEDDING
And we are excited about Rebekka and Tobi’s WEDDING which will take place in just a few weeks! Yes, it will be different since we can’t have a big reception with many people but it will be very special in a different way! You can pray with us that Bexi and Tobi will love their day and make many wonderful memories for themselves!
Thank you all for your prayers for us and the Dinangat church, for your support and encouragement! You all know that you are a very important part of our lives and ministry and that we need you all even in the upcoming years of our work in PNG. Thank you all so very much for your faithfulness!
The next time we will write, it will hopefully be from the other side of the globe 😊.
