Dear Pastor & Church,
First of all, thank you for your prayers over this last month as we finish up furlough and prepare to go. Our tickets are bought, paid for, and we leave Saturday March 25th. Now to get packing.
We will be flying non-stop through the airports from Tulsa, Chicago, Seoul, Manila, Port Moresby (PNG) and finally Lae. Lord willing, we arrive Tuesday March 28th and will start back into the teaching and preaching schedule the next week in April.
Next, we are thankful the tent project has taken a big step forward. Manufacturing has started. It looks like the tent will be paid in full and shipped before we leave. It’s scheduled to arrive by June and be used for a meeting in July. Thank you!
Another blessing is the news that Wau Baptist Church has called Bro. Alphonse Timb to pastor the church. They have had a really good year with Bro. & Mrs. Luther Smith helping them and guiding the work there. They reported 67 saved and 40 baptized in 2016. The Bible school has 5 new families starting the two year program.
Hebrews 6:10 says, “For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.” Thank you for your faithful prayers and support.
Stan & Tresa Rowe
