Dear friends and family Last week I started teaching in Acts. Thursday morning only two came, then Robert and Ekesue came that night with Ableso so we had the lesson again. Friday morning there was only Sevis, Robert and Papaso. So, that was three times I taught that lesson. It was one of those weeks.Continue reading August 24, 2018

Dear friends and family The start of phase 2 at Koropa got off to a slow start. Tuesday afternoon the village was deserted and no one came that night. I was a bit discouraged and wondered if anyone was going to come this week.

What an eventful couple of weeks. When I rang Heti Tuesday before last he told me that the government member for this district and also a member of the PNG parliament lost his wife. He comes from up there near Koropa so they were having the funeral there that week. So we put the teachingContinue reading April 5, 2018

Third week of teaching at Koropa

Dear all our friends and family

In these first few lessons we are finding our feet. What are the best times to teach when people are there. We are also getting to know who the regulars are. Last week I (David) went up on my own because Heti was involved in the signing over of the old ITF property to the new teacher’s college. It was in a rainy period (this wet season we are getting periods of rain then dry) and the river was flooded so no one from across the river were able to come. The people didn’t come until it was getting dark, which would have been okay because we have a light, but it was starting to rain. They said that we can continue the lesson in the morning. The next morning I taught the lesson on the creation of Adam. Things were a bit wet as it had rained all night. We had more rain that night and no one came. Thursday morning I taught on the placing of Adam in the garden of Eden and the warning about eating the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Dear friends and family,

Tuesday night we taught lesson 1 about God’s word. I (David) started by going through the chart (picture above) and pointing out the different people whom God used to write His word. One man didn’t just sit down and write it. It covered a long period of time.

Dear all,

This is just a short asking for your prayers. Next Tuesday I will be starting to teach at Koropa village. Heti, a believer from Katagu, will be going with me to help with the teaching.

Hallow everyone and a very happy Christmas to you all as you remember the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ again and why He came to us as a baby. Last year I wrote a Christmas shopping letter, and it will start off that way again this year.

Dear friends and family

We have some sad news and good news at this time. The sad news first. I (David) have been teaching believers at Katagu through Romans since July. After several months of no rain here the people were recently without food. Since they depend on their gardens for their food this is a really big issue for them. I encouraged them to look to the Lord for help rather than the mission or the government. They were reluctant to pray to ask God for rain so I prayed. Two days later it began to rain and they got good soaking rain out of it.
