In these days I got the sad news that another Mengen believer has passed away. He and his family are very precious to me. When we moved into the area in 2009, this family was the first to open their hearts and home to me and Marie. It’s very very hard for me, as they have become my family! I would want to be there with them. I would want to spend a few days with them, standing at their backs! But this is God’s plan for me for now.
Thank you for your prayers! I, Linn, survived my trip! Going in I thought I wouldn’t make it. After about 3 hours of hiking my pace slowed considerably and rest times increased dramatically. J It took 5 ½ hours to make the 13 km trek. (After about 3 ½ hours on the boat) Coming out […]

He really enjoys helping other translators and has his share of translating consultant work coming up in March and April so it is great to be prepared. Ned has sent his remaining 2 Gospels and […]

Y toda aquella generación también fue reunida a sus padres.Y se levantó después de ellos otra generación que no conocía a Jehová,ni la obra que él había hecho por Israel. Jueces 2:10 Desde nuestra ventana podemos ver un huerto. La gente en Papúa Nueva Guinea come lo que produce de ellos. Salvo algunos pocos que viven en las […]
As you know we are not working among the Mengen on our own! We are part of a much larger team. It all starts back here at home and stretches all the way to where we are working. And each link is vital. Check out this blog, and see how you can be part of this chain reaching the Mengen.
In April, Ken prepared a Papua New Guinea themed meal for the students at the Bible Institute. As he looked around the house for decor to bring in, we chuckled to see a picture he had taken back in 2003 of a couple teenagers at the mission high school in PNG. One of those young […]
Where is your faith, Jesus asked the 12 when they woke Him in the middle of a nap. The wind, waves and water had put fear in the disciples heart; but to Jesus it was a lullaby as He lay on the pillow on the bow of the boat. Today missionaries can tell great stories […]
Expect the unexpected. . . I feel like this theme has come up a few times in the past several weeks, even before I got here. They call PNG the land of the unexpected, which is hard for someone who likes to plan and prepare and be structured. But it’s been an amazing lesson in […]
