We have arrived! We got to our new home in Goroka, PNG, around 4:30p.m Thursday and were welcomed by our new teammates. We felt so welcomed and loved.

The CRMF team cleaned and worked so hard before we arrived to get our new home ready for us and loaded the cabinets with food. A huge thank you to them. Continue reading

Our MAF teammates in Arnhem Land (part of aboriginal Australia) have created a short video that illustrates some of the Gospel technology work we will be doing in Papua New Guinea. Take a quick view and enjoy the Kiwi accent (thanks to Peter Higham).
Our October Prayer Letter is now available from our MAF web page at http://www.maf.org/document.doc?id=4098. This letter shares our timeline for departure to Papua New Guinea and shares a story from our teammates there. Also in the letter is how to send us mail in PNG, some prayer requests, and a note from our daugher, Sarah.
Thanks everyone for your love and support,
