Momentum is Building These past few weeks, the word “momentum” has been on our minds.

Hi Friends We have been back in PNG for about 3 months now, and it’s about time to give a quick update about what’s been happening. Marie will be working on some personal news, and I will share a bit of a ministry update with you all. Reunited with coworkers –Since we have been back, […]
