The Countdown Is On! Term 3 has been full and rich - filled with many opportunities to teach, mentor and serve the youth here in Ukarumpa. From Senior Retreats to Chemistry and Anatomy & Physiology class, to class hangouts and community groups, we have enjoyed pouring into the lives of youth. As we begin the approach to furlough, we can't even begin to express how fast the time here in Papua New Guinea (PNG) has gone and yet how full and life changing our time here has been. We have a lot … [Read more...] about The Countdown Is On

The ladies and men hike up from their villages in the dark with their produce and market opens at 6am and runs until 8:30am. A typical market haul for our family probably costs us about 30 Kina … [Read more...] about Hello From The Highlands!
Thank you to everyone who prayed through both legs of our journey. We were able to spend some much needed family time in Brisbane before heading off to Papua New Guinea thanks to the hospitality of dear friends who opened their home to us and gave our kids the time they needed to adjust to a very different time zone. I can’t imagine having done the journey without that time for … [Read more...] about We’re Here!
