Dear friends and family

There has not been any progress in getting our work permit exemptions. It seems that no one at the Dept. of Labour wants to sign them. The mission has been advised to go back and try applying for work permits for us, as they were going to do before all this!


Well the good news is that God is in control and He had a purpose in allowing all this delay. Wendy was having trouble with her right eye so we went to Rockhampton on Saturday to see an eye specialist. The outcome was that the specialist wants to operate on both eyes for cataracts. He was pleased that we wanted to go back to PNG and wanted to do them quickly to get us back there. We have made appointments for the 12th and 26th of May, then there will be a month wait before she can get her new glasses.

So it will be at least July before we can go back to PNG. But God is in control and His timing is right!

With love from
David and Wendy
