We trust you are all doing well as we kick off the summer months. We just wanted to send out a quick update to let you know all is well with us and we are already working on plans for my next trip to Asia Pacific on September 9 – that time will be here before we know it! We would like to ask you to pray for our helicopter mechanics as the helicopter has been broke down. During an inspection they discovered a crack somewhere near where the tail boom attaches on to the fuselage. They are in contact with the factory to see what needs to be done to repair it.


We have a regional conference planned for the end of this month which is kind of leaving some of our missionaries feeling stranded and if it can’t be fixed in time they will have to make the rugged hike out. We also have Wana evangelistic teams trying to get to their ministry location and others needing to return home so are hoping it can get back into service soon. On a positive note we have been very encouraged with effort on behalf of many of our churches to get good discipleship programs going in their respective churches, and to see their desire to see faithful men and women equipped to serve the Lord. Thank You so much for being a part of what the Lord is doing on this island nation.

May the Lord bless,

Let’s have a feast tonight.

It sure tasted a lot better than it looked!
