[Campbells in PNG] March 2015 Update

Supporting Bible translation in Papua New Guinea through
computer support and health care

Still waitingMany in Papua New Guinea are still waiting for God's Word in their own language

Papua New Guinea has over 830 languages and more than 7 million people. Almost 300 of these languages in PNG are still needing a translation project started. This boy’s language group is one of these 300 groups still waiting. Please pray for the people and resources needed to reach these last languages! (Taken from The PNG Experience Blog)

Our Return To Papua New Guinea

Our target date to return to PNG is June 21, less than 3 ½ months away! However, Wycliffe requires that we have 100% of our monthly budget met before we are released to return to PNG. At this time we still need $1391 per month to reach 100%.
To our partners in ministry--thank you for your prayers and financial partnership! We cannot support Bible translation in PNG without each of you!

To others who have shown interest in furthering the work of Bible Translation in PNG, but have not yet partnered with us, would you consider in what way you can partner with us—through prayer and/or through regular financial partnership?

New partners have asked, “How much do people ‘normally’ give?” Our current partners give anywhere from $10-$200 a month and no amount is too small or too big! Some have also started with what they can and increased their giving as they have been able to, for which we are very grateful!

Addition and Multiplication

An old high school friend recently wrote us, asking if she could share our story with her Sunday school class in Texas to see if they will partner with us long-term! How exciting! As we've prayed daily for God's provision of these needs, His answer can come in surprising ways! God can add to our contacts and multiply our resources through each of you! Would you consider these possibilities?

Will you be an advocate for us and add to our team?
  • Share your passion about the  Bibleless people groups in PNG with your Sunday School class, small group, prayer group, group of moms, Cross-Fit or Zumba class (lol), and ask them to join with you in partnering with us in our ministry financially and through prayer.
Can you multiply your giving by taking advantage of a corporate matching program?
  • "Thousands of US companies will match contributions by their employees to charitable organizations like Wycliffe. Some companies also match volunteer hours or gifts from spouses, retirees, and board members." https://www.wycliffe.org/donate/corporate-matching
  • Check to see if the company you work for will match your gift so that your gift can be multiplied through their corporate matching program.
Please let us know if you have an opportunity you think we should know about! Or another idea we can share with the rest of our partners!

Please continue to pray for God's provision in His perfect timing! It is so encouraging when we find out that one of you is praying for us daily!!

"Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’....your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you." Matthew 6:31-33 (ESV)

An Update on Our House

We praise God for the gifts so far toward fixing our roof and water tank in PNG! We are praying for the remaining amount and that the construction team can start soon on these repairs as our renters have let us know that more water has leaked into the house. The average rainfall per year is about 75 inches. And we can easily get 8-12 inches of rain in one month during the rainy season (December through April).
Thank you to each of you who have so generously given toward this project. We have felt your love and concern and greatly appreciate it! Please continue to pray for the remaining funds to fix our roof and install a new water tank.

We still need $2825 to cover the estimated costs of these repairs. We hope to be able to return to a dry house and lots of clean drinking water!
