Despite the rain and with umbrella in hand, an early morning walk at Arbuckle Park, just a short drive from the mission’s house, was breathtaking! Initially soaking in the beauty of the sights and sounds of the wild daisies along the trail, the birds singing in the trees, a train whistling by in the distance, and the leaves falling from the tree canopy, inadvertently led to a fork in the road and a wrong turn onto one of the side trails that led to a dead end. How often do we become distracted by any number of good things in our lives? But if we don’t rely on God’s road map for life, the Bible, we become distracted by the concerns of this world. By reading, memorizing and meditating on God’s Word, the Bible directs our steps.
Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
Many are praying for the students at the Goroka Baptist Bible College that they would continue to share the hope of Jesus Christ throughout Papua New Guinea. Over 100 churches have been planted and thousands have been freed from the bondage of spirit worship and witchcraft by the power of the gospel. Please continue to pray for the students, staff and missionaries to share God’s Word that the Bible will light their path.
Thank you for many who have given medical supplies for the medical clinic in Goroka. Our shipping date has changed. If you would like to help with donating medical supplies, please let us know as we can collect items until mid-October.
Our visa application documents were mailed! Praise God!
After mailing our visa documents, we learned the documents arrived in Guinea, West Africa instead of Papua New Guinea. Please pray for the documents to arrive in PNG.

- Lauren arrived safely at the mission’s house following summer classes. Much wedding planning and packing this week.
- The hospital in Goroka is open. Physicians and nurses are treating patients there!
- Despite the hospital is open and helping patients, due to understaffing and being under equipped, 1 mom and 18 babies died this past week alone.
- Papua New Guinea is experiencing a drought. It has not rained there since May. People’s gardens are drying up and hunger is becoming an issue. Please pray for rain.
