We can testify that our God is real and true. He has been faithful time and time again throughout this journey to lead and provide for us in unexpected ways. Each time that God moves, our faith grows and our souls are encouraged, and we hope that your faith and souls are benefiting vicariously!
A mere 3 weeks from today we are supposed to board our first of four flights and set off for 2-1/2 days of traveling to Ukarumpa in the Eastern Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea. We still have a major hurdle to clear though with our work permits and visas. Please pray now for Kristi's work permit to be approved and for our visas to be expedited! The PNG labor department approved John's work permit almost 2 weeks ago now, but Kristi's has still not shown up. We need both of these in order to submit our visa applications. Our visas will be granted by the PNG embassy here in the U.S., but could still take every minute of the time that we have left stateside.
Fear wants us to be worried about missing our (very expensive...) flights, nervous about missing our orientation course (next one starts in Sept.), and scared about being delayed for reasons unknown. But this isn't an opportunity to be fearful, this is an opportunity to see what God can do. Please join us in prayer now and see what God can do!H
