Last night we had our farewell dinner with our little staff team. Lillian couldn't make it because she just found out she has malaria and typhoid. (Because of the drought here, I guess the water quality is becoming compromised in some places.) We brought her chicken and a case of bottled water on the way home. I was so glad to see her standing at her gate when we dropped off the stuff. I was grateful to God for the medicine He provided that enabled her to be standing there. (Malaria and typhoid are not things I normally deal with in New Zealand and sound a bit scary to me.) Bottom line? I got my hug from Lily, and I saw God was in the process of healing her!
Let the record show: We believe all three PNG banks are now on line! (This is after 2 1/2 years of attempts!) Although one bank is still untested, this has been a major step!
We still need to see 2 miraculous solutions: storage for the extra office supplies stored in George Puipui's house as the family is in the process of selling the house; and housing for our staff between when the university year ends and before they go to Fiji next year for training. We'll be working on finding God's solutions to these needs from New Zealand.
Thank you to all who have prayed for us! Blessings upon you!
