Septemeber is full of fun things to pray for! It really is the best month of the year, and I’m not just saying that because it's my birth month (Kristi)!
1. The translation team that we support is back in the village this month. This is the Wades' second stay since taking the leap of faith to partner with the Mamusi language group to create a written language and translate the Bible for them. Pray for the kids especially as they transition, and for Aaron as he endeavors to learn the language. The Wades also have a lot on their minds as they sort through all the details required to build a permanent dwelling for their family in the village. This is the village that John will be visiting in November to commence building the Wades' village house for them!
2. Encounter is this month. September 16th - 20th to be exact. It's the senior high youth retreat. John is one of the leaders going, and while he is away I will be watching our friends' two sons so they can both go to help lead too. Please pray for safe travel to Goroka, wisdom for all of the adult leaders (especially Marty Driggers, who will be speaking), and for revival in the hearts of all.
3. My mother is coming to PNG!!!! My (Kristi) mom will be here from Sept 21st till Oct. 4th… our first visitor! Please pray for safe and uneventful travel for her, and pray for God’s blessings over her time here—that it will be a sweet gift to us all, and that she will get a better picture of why we love this country and these people so much.
This was short and sweet, but still full of big big things. Thank you for your faithful prayers, let us know how we can be praying for you too, our warriors.
John and Kristi and kids
