News - Guided By His Hand

August 2016

Dear Friends,

Hard to believe that 15 years ago next week, Keri and I moved into our village and joined the Mengen team. The Lord has done so much in the hearts of the people we came to serve!! It is SO amazing to see the changes in people’s lives and to have been a part of it all almost from the very start.

Dear friends,

Thank you so much for your prayers for me these last couple of weeks. They have been difficult, challenging and emotional for me in so many ways.

Last week I went in with friends to their village to pack up their belongings. Words can’t express how difficult it was for them and also for me to witness. While we know the Lord has a special plan, it is pretty hard to see from this angle and each day was filled to the brim with grief and heartbreak. However, on the last morning we were in this tribe, I was woken by a song being played in a village house next door.

“Be still and know, that I am God. Be still and know that I am God.
Be still and know that I am God. I am the Lord that healeth thee.
I am the Lord that healeth thee. I am the Lord that healeth thee.”

This song was played over and over probably 50 times and it really struck truth into my heart. Although we don’t know what the Lord has planned, we know that we just have to be still and know that He is still God no matter what the circumstances are.

Dear Friends,

Greetings from hot and humid Hoskins.  Life here continues to roll along.  Thanks so much for your faithful prayers for me and for the Mengen church.

This last week the Laureti family went back to our village and are continuing on with discipleship for another few months.  They report that the Mengen church is doing very well.  What a joy to hear that our “children” are walking in the truth of God’s Word.

One special piece of news is very near and dear to my heart.  My close friend Kariang has been my translation helper from day one and we’ve spent 100’s of hours together translating Scripture into the Mengen language.  She’s a mother of 9 children and her kids are like my own family after spending so much time together over the last 15+ years!!

Dear friends,

Well, greetings from PNG once again!! I’ve been here just over a week and am getting back on my feet after another long trip around the world! Thanks so much for your prayers as I travelled. I’m happy to report that my luggage arrived with me, although I had a few nervous moments. It never ceases to amaze me how my little suitcases can travel all that way and arrive in my tiny airport on our island!

Dear friends,

Greetings from Canada! As you may remember, I returned home a few weeks ago to be with my family as my grandma was critically ill. I thought I’d be coming home for a funeral, but instead, the Lord has seen fit to prolong my grandma’s life. Although she is still very frail, she is out of the hospital and is able to back into her own bed in her nursing home. She has good days and bad days, but she is always cheerful and happy to see us. I am thankful for this time to spend here with family.
