We were not feeling like we needed a break after only being in PNG for eight months but our medical issues were piling up and Brian's tooth sure needed to be fixed. We found ourselves surrounded by Australian hospitality and our Christian circle just expanded as so many from the body reached out to meet our physical needs and touched our hearts as well! Thank you Ben, Hung, Edward, Keiyeng, Steve, Mike, Yinleng, and your lovely church for such an amazing time of renewal and open hospitality! We were on the receiving end and we were so very blessed by all your kindnesses and care!
It was a wonder to be in a land where we were one of the masses instead of being totally aware that we are different and could be the next target. It was a lovely break from being so "ON" and what a delight to get a meal at McDonalds and enjoy the play land. I think for the boys that was the highlight of the trip! Well petting the kangaroos and holding the huge snake was a close second!
So we are back into our ministry, nothing outward here has changed but our hearts have been encouraged, our spirits renewed and our courage restored and we are excited for what our future holds in our ministry here in PNG! The boys were happy to come "home" as home is where your kitty is apparently! :)
We send you our love! Thank you for praying!
We'll write more soon as our adventure unfolds!
