Thank you so much for your love, prayers and gifts! We are deeply grateful for your part in reaching the Hewa tribal people with the love of Jesus. Thank you!

We are wrapping up our time in Arizona and are now getting ready to return to PNG! It has been wonderful to spend time with friends and family but we are dying to know how our Hewa friends are doing, and can’t wait to be re-united with them. We have heard very little from our village or church but have heard that a second teacher has been hired and is currently teaching along side Gabriel in our new little Christian School. We are longing to know how things have been in Hewa, in our absence.

We have one more presentation to give in Prescott for our home-church on May 16, and then will be putting our belongings into storage before starting our final circuit across the USA. First, we plan to visit family and friends in Idaho and Washington in June, then drive to Colorado to see Micah and his wife, and then to Texas to visit with Mikayla and her husband. Lastly, we plan to drive to South Carolina at the beginning of July to see Susan’s parents. We hope to fly back to PNG from SC in Mid July.

Praise and Prayer points

  • Praise the Lord for His provision of a house and vehicles and for health and safety while we were re-uniting with friends and family in the USA.
  • Pray for safe travels by road and airline as we work toward returning to life and ministry in PNG.
  • Pray for continued growth for the Hewa believers and that the new school will thrive and impact many lives.
  • Pray the Lord raises up many more workers who will take part in this effort to bring the message of the Cross to the unreached areas of the globe.
