We hopped in the car and jaunted over to the optomitrist and had Colton's new glasses fitted. Colton's eyes seem to be changing just about as fast as His height and we have needed a new eye glass perscription about every six months. When we are in PNG it won't be as easy as a quick jaunt to the nearest town to gethis eyes examined, rather a three hour plane trip to a larger town or a trip to Australia. We take our roads and stores and choices so much for granted. Knowing what life in PNG holds I try very hard to remember to be thankful for the blessing of so many choices. The crazy thing is that our life in PNG is one of the more convienient lives as we will live in a town with small stores and a few choices. Can you imagine moving to a tribe in a remote location with no stores, no electricity on demand, no cable or phone or roads. Just accessible by a plane or an impossible hike through mountainous jungle terrain. We are excited to be part of the support team of those people that have chosen to give up all, to minister to a people group that would never hear the name of Jesus if they didn't choose to go. We hope to be an encouragement to the missionaries that turn off their generator and only hear the sounds of jungle in a very dark night.
We are so blessed to have such an amazing family. Honestly I am going to miss the gift of calling a grandparent to watch the boys when we need a sitter. The boys' are so blessed to have such an amazing Nana and Buppa and Gram and Pap. They not only watch our boys and keep them alive but invest in them and enjoy the quality time they have together.We look forward to our calling of missions but our families will be our biggest loss. It's not everyday you see a 70 year old gram takes a six year old fishing.
Best laid plans of mice and men, my plan to have the web site accessible by the end of the weekend has failed miserably. I'm just computer savy enough to be dangerous. But I know God's ways are not my ways and He has a plan even down to the timing of our internet presence. I trust Him and have put it in His hands. I am enjoying reading in the book of James as our REALLY COOL Pastor Tim Boger is preaching that book through. The verses James 4:13-17 talks about saying if the Lord wills. So if the Lord wills I hope to have my web site up by
It's been a week and a day since Brian came back from Papua New Guinea on His work trip. Brian blesses us all so much and the month He was gone I got a true taste of single parenting. My heart goes out to all those spouses who will never wake up to the arms of the one they love. I grieve deeply for your loss and hope you have found the one true love of your life: Jesus! His grace is all sufficient and God's grace carried us while Brian was away.
Brian is out on a Man date with our two little boys. They decided to go to Fraileys' Sale the ultimate man day: a farm equipment auction. Colton and Joshua were so excited to be out with their dad and the get the one thing all dates have in common a Sheets slushy.
I on the other hand have been so thankful for the time to delve into God's word with a moment of silence in our very busy house. I also have time to update our web page as I hope to have it published by the end of this weekend. God is So Good and His mercy is new every morning, Great is His faithfulness!
