"God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work." (2 Corinthians 9:8 ESV)

We returned to the US in October and had a wonderful time with family over the holidays! With the holiday season over, we are now turning more of our attention to connecting with our ministry partners and on getting everything ready for our return to Papua New Guinea (PNG). Lord willing, we plan to return to our roles in IT and health care in PNG in July.

Before we can go back to PNG in July we need to:
  • Complete doctor, dentist, and orthodontist visits
  • Renew Andrew and Luke's passports
  • Put together a shipment of the clothes, shoes, and household supplies we will need for the next 3-year term in PNG
  • Meet our increased monthly budget

Financial Update

In order for Wycliffe to release us to return to our assignments in Papua New Guinea our monthly shortfall of $1200 needs to be met. This shortfall is due to some partners moving on to heaven, increased tuition needs as our kids go on to higher grade levels, and rising costs of living.

$1150 per month is still needed. We'll be cleared to GO when it's all GREEN. =) We are excited to see God provide!
$1150 in monthly partnership still needed


As this new year, 2019, started many made New Year's resolutions. Statistics say that only 9.2 percent will stick with those resolutions. Here are some other interesting statistics.
839 | The number of languages in PNG
234 | The number of languages in PNG with the translated New Testament
316 | The number of PNG languages still without any of God's Word in their language
61 | The total number of regular (most are monthly) financial partners
10 | The number of years we've served with Wycliffe Bible Translators
5 | The number of months until we return to PNG
1 | The number of new monthly financial partners since starting furlough

Special times with family!
