Guess what? The bad news is we’re several thousand dollars poorer. The good news is we have our plane tickets!!!! On August 29th, we will be leaving Phoenix for Madang, Papua New Guinea.
So, why are we going over there? Not because we hate living in a city that has the 33rd most prosperous economy in all the world, and want to live in a third world country. Not because we wonder what it feels like to have malaria. Not because we want to leave our family and our best friends. But because God’s name is not known amongst most of the 800+ tribes in Papua New Guinea. And because God said, “I will be exalted among the nations, and I will be exalted in the earth” (Ps. 46:10). Because God’s name is not being exalted in every tribe in Papua New Guinea, we are going to proclaim Him to one of the tribes there.
Stay tuned for more updates.
