Christmas 2014

A new baby, and a fresh start.

Matiu and his wife, Saina, had a new baby! He is a healthy and good natured little boy, and mom is eager to show him off to everyone.

That’s not the only beautiful new thing that happened in their lives though, as recently Matiu took a bold step to move away from spirit appeasement practices, to a deeper commitment to the Lord. In the picture above, you can see Matiu blowing on a small flame to burn his bundle of feathers and other things used for spirit dances. As he was burning these things Sunday after church, he announced to the entire group his intentions to follow only Jesus. “I am done walking on two trails,” he said, “trying to go to church while at the same time attending spirit dances. I want everyone to see I am burning the things that tempt me to have a divided heart.”

Unexpected change of plans

Mikayla’s back pain continues to be increasingly painful to the point she is struggling to function well at BIOLA University. Although she has been able to keep her grades up, she is often not able to sleep or eat well and has lost weight due to pain. After prayer and consultation with our mission directors we decided it was important for Susan (and Mikenna) to immediately fly to California to be with Mikayla for her next two months of meetings with specialists to determine the cause of her pain. The results of the recent MRIs showed that she may have some sort of autoimmune problem that may be causing slight degenerative problems with her back. On top of that, she has two slipped discs. The doctors are concerned about the degenerative problems and would like to run more tests to determine what may be causing this. It is sad to hear of our daughter struggling in such pain and we want to do everything we can to help her succeed.
