Back On the Road Again

A prayer that we have been praying almost since before we arrived has been answered. Yes! We finally have a vehicle. The white 10-seater Nissan van drove into the compound to the cheering of children on Monday afternoon. Previously owned and maintained by YWAM missionaries, Dad checked it out on his recent trip down to Lae (a coastal port city). No one was expecting it to work out.  We had heard many rumors about the van having a crash history. Imagine the surprise when Dad called with the news that he had found a van for our family! A few days after that call, the owner drove the Nissan into Goroka. He and Dad signed papers over lunch at a local ‘kai-bar’ (restaurant). At last, the freedom of a van! And with the room to drag along our friends on all of our crazy adventures, as 10 seats in PNG means it should fit at least 15 people, if not more. The PNG highway can expect our presence once more.


A huge thanks to those who prayed and donated for the vehicle!

  1. The van looks like it has the steering wheel on the left as in the US. Does it? I can sense the excitement in the photo. So glad for you all. Where’s Jonathan? This is the car in which he and Jenny will learn to drive. Everyone is looking well. We hope to see Ty next weekend. It’s hot here this week — in the 90’s — but expected to drop to the 60’s by Sunday. Weird weather!

    My raspberry bushes look so healthy and the patch is easily 5 times the size I started with — loaded with berries! We love you guys. Stay healthy. Did you get the package from Australia yet?


    • No, the steering wheel is on the right. Christy is getting ready for her first manual transmission driving lesson in PNG. After we got past all the whining about how she will never drive here, she did great!
