Julie teaches Melanesian Pidgin to our new missionaries to PNG. She is patient and encouraging, which makes her a natural for the huge role she has in preparing missionaries to move into a village. She also cleans our facility in Madang. Julie and her husband Simon have 3 children.
You know when you see someone excel at a job and you know they are the right fit for it? This is the story of Jeremy and Lorie Lehman creating and running the onsite logistics for the Finisterre Vision missionaries in PNG. With a deep and tested dependence upon Christ for all they do, Jeremy and Lorie exhibit a steadiness and faithfulness that is truly uncommon. Their capacity to love and serve seems boundless, and we’re not actually sure if they ever sleep. Their desire to serve God on the mission field goes back almost a decade, and since being in PNG they have accomplished a decade’s worth of work in a short time.
Jeremy is our own MacGyver and Superman rolled into one person, or as a fellow missionary put it, Jeremy is a “steely-eyed missile man“. His life experience and jobs have uniquely prepared him to be a perfect fit for keeping our church planters focused on the work they have come to do – to plant churches! Lorie sees the best in everyone and everything. Her gentle love for people makes her a fantastic mom, wife, friend, and Mrs. Logistics Coordinator.
The Lehman’s lead the logistics staff in Madang as together they do everything that needs to be done behind the scenes to keep us calling people to the Lord. They set an amazing example of forward-thinking and self-sacrifice. Get to know them through their blog, and next time they are in the US (or next time you are in PNG!), don’t miss out on spending time with this amazing family!
