Dear Pastor and church,
Proverbs 27:1 says, “Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.” Sometimes this seems to come as a command to “just be flexible.” Someone has said, “Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not break!”
Some progress was made with flight training since I wrote last. I was able to finally go up solo in the C172 the last few weeks of class. I also passed the first written test under the Civil Aviation Safety Authority. (CASA Australia) Thank you for prayers for progress.
God is able to provide and protect. The rainy season often means the road is out a lot roughly March to May. Landslides. Rockslides. Washouts. Flooding. I couldn’t get through the Mumeng area in Morobe Province for 5 days, so missionary Kenny Keck went ahead to a Watut Easter meeting without me. They reported 11 saved and an encouraging time. Quite a ride and a couple days hike for them but God is good.
Tresa had someone throw a long machete knife at her while she was driving. She and Aaron had gone over to the church area here in town one weekday. The bush knife glanced off her door, inches from her face, and marked up the side of the truck. Bro. Gary Keck went down and took the weapon away from the drunken young man. Again, praise God for protection. A normal day on a normal road but it was an attack.
We helped bail another young man out of jail. He was in my religion class in elementary school in 1999. He professed calling to God for salvation while in jail. Pray for Philip.
*In 2 more months, we will bring Naomi to the States for school as she leaves home.
*In ongoing flight training while on a short furlough.
*In looking for a well maintained, used RV. Email if you hear of something.
Thank you again for your ever faithful prayers and support,
