It’s been two months now with so little rain. We got a drizzle last week and that is all we have seen in over 60 days. The grass is brown and the earth now hurts your feet if you try to roam without shoes. There is less and less food to buy at market, and the river that we pump water from is dried up.
It’s hard to be faced with your own fragility and neediness, especially when you are taught your whole life to be independent. But it’s true, we all desperately need God for everything. We need Him for our rain, we need Him for our relationships, we need Him for our vitality.
Please join us on our knees before the throne of the Creator and Giver of all things. Pray that he blesses Papua New Guinea with lavish amounts of rain. Pray that His glory will radiate from us as we strive to love and serve the people here generously, even as we feel the strains of our own needs.
P.S.- just a side note to say we miss you all dearly! And it has come to our attention that a vast number of emails we sent in the last few months were not received. So know if you haven’t heard from us, It’s probably because your email is floating in space somewhere, and know even without the words we meant for you that you are loved and thought of! Please forgive us for this; we have already forgiven you for not writing us back ;) Also please add our foreign and often filtered out email address to your approved sender list: firstname.lastname@example.org
