Sowing the Word

Our last three weeks in PNG were blessed by souls responding to the preached word.

  • At our church plant in Ipaiyu village, a couple who had been coming for several services trusted Christ.
  • At Doa Rubber Plantation (outside of Port Moresby), Konos Manus and I did a weekend outreach among the Kamea people who work there. Some of those dear people responded after hearing the preaching and personal witnessing, trusting in Christ alone.
  • At Heritage Baptist Church in Port Moresby, we had some more come to the Lord!

Sharing the Burden

Our weeks in the US have been busy. Already we have been in two great missions conferences, and those are a tribute to the passion of the pastors and their people. Other one-day meetings have been good too, and we have had so many opportunities to spend time with mission-hearted friends as we travel. Those times are precious and have sharpened our iron!

Shipping a Container

Between meetings this month we will be loading a 40 foot container with donated medical supplies. God has touched so many hearts, and God’s people have given so much out of love for Christ and for our Kamea people. Literally tons of bandages, medicines, protein supplements, baby milk, and other critical supplies will be sent to PNG.

We leave the US to go home on the day after Thanksgiving. Lord willing, the container should arrive in PNG around the same time as we do.

Saying “Thank You”

We never say it enough! You, our friends and supporters, give so much in prayer and finances to allow us to minister in your stead. And so many have given the items we need for our clinic, or donated to purchase them. We are always telling our Kamea people that kind and generous believers in America give so we can live in and serve the people of PNG. God bless you all for faithfully standing with us. The world is ours to reach together.
