We are encouraged that God is at work!
What we don’t know is how He will help us to connect with those people who are willing to do the difficult, uncomfortable or maybe even dangerous things to proclaim His glory among the least reached people groups of the world. We have been amazed already at the people He has brought our way!
Please pray with us that the Lord will raise up the laborers to complete the task He has given to us. Pray, too, for us as that we would remain steadfast in faith, eager at every opportunity, wise in communication of truth, gracious in dealing with people and good stewards of our resources. Please pray for provision to be able to get out and mix with the Christian community and generate more opportunities.
We would still very much desire to visit our friends and supporting churches this year whom we have not yet had opportunity to see since our return to the USA. We do have a lot of stories to share about what God is doing in Papua New Guinea as well as in our lives.
Many years of ministry have shown us that prayer is not a small thing in God’s economy. Even Jesus, God in flesh, our perfect Redeemer, knowing God’s will, took time to pray. When we ask you to pray, we are asking you to act in a big way. Together we have seen so many answers to our prayers! We think that God wants to answer a whole bunch more of our prayers as we align our requests with His revealed will!
Thank you for your ministry with us in prayer and gifts to accomplish that which is on God’s heart and ours!
Because Christ lives,
