"Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.  Because He lives, all fear is gone, because I know He holds the future and I can face uncertain days because He lives."

Dear Friends,

 Thanks so much for your faithful prayers for me.  What a busy month this has been, and I’m still spinning from everything that has happened!!  To make a long story short, I am now home in Canada, 3 months earlier than planned!  Hard to believe you can go from the tropics to ice and snow all in the space of a few hours.  Anyway, my trip home was the longest ever, as I was in transit for something like 51 hours!  To top it all off, my passport went missing in a government office and my flights were delayed by 4 days.  Thankfully in the end, my passport was discovered behind a desk and I was able to continue on my way, arriving home in time for Easter.  It has been really special to be able to see nearly all of my family already, as we celebrated Easter together.  I’m so thankful for a wonderful, godly family who is so supportive and encouraging.  What a huge blessing it is, and one not to be taken for granted.

Dear Friends,

Life here at Hoskins has been very stressful lately, and I am so thankful for all your prayers and support. 

Since December, our team has been living at Hoskins, making the occasional trip back into our village.  It is such a blessing to see our dear friends growing in their understanding as they hear God’s Word.  It’s also a special joy to know that Mengen believers are now teaching their own people, with very little assistance by us missionaries!!  While we are here at Hoskins, the 4 main Bible teachers are going through 1 Corinthians and Ephesians and will soon be into the book of 1 Timothy, with the group of believers who meet together each week!!

Dear friends,

Thanks so much for your faithful prayers for me!!  The past few weeks have been busy and stressful and exciting, in more ways than one.

ROMANS:  Just a few days after Christmas, our translation consultant Jason and I sat down with 3 Mengen friends, and began the “final check” of the book of Romans.  It was SO encouraging and exciting to see God’s Word being communicated clearly.  We had hoped to check 4 chapters a day, and in the end, we did 6 chapters the first day, 7 the second day and 3 on the last day, finishing up a day and a half earlier than planned!!  Now that the check is over, all that is left to do is to format Romans in preparation for printing.  Lord willing in just a few weeks, we’ll be able to see the book of Romans placed into the hands of the Mengen people!!  It was a long, hard task, but I am so thankful for the Lord’s sustaining grace which enabled us to see it through to the end.

Dear Friends,

Merry Christmas to each and every one!!  For those of us here in PNG, Christmas seems rather distant, without all the commercialism that we have in our home countries!  Although we definitely won’t be having a white Christmas this year, we know it will be a special time nonetheless as we celebrate our Savior’s birth!!

Dear Friends,

Thanks so very much for your faithful prayers and support.  I can’t believe that Christmas is just around the corner and the New Year right behind it.  These past few months have been busy and stressful and I thank the Lord for providing good health and strength to meet each challenge.  There are exciting things happening with the Mengen church these days and we are thrilled to see the Lord at work in the hearts of the believers here in our village.  Here are just a couple of examples.
