Often times, people ask us what it is like to live and work in Papua. It’s hard to describe it exactly because it is so different than anything we know anywhere else. That’s one of the reasons we like to post pictures and video. What better than for you to see it for yourself? Speaking of which, Helimission has just released a new video about flying in Papua, and guess who’s in it?!
You can see what our home is like, what Michael does each day, and hear about what’s most challenging and rewarding for him.
Please keep praying for health solutions for Michael. We are still actively pursuing treatment that will change his life and allow us to serve in Papua much more effectively. It’s proving to be difficult to get the doctors to cooperate with us, however. :/ In the mean time, he’s really struggling and we are all (trying to) trust(ing) the Lord with His plans.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
will clap their hands.
Isaiah 55 8-10
Blessings to you!
