I had to take down Christmas decorations a little early because of my upcoming trip. This blog is rather urgent because I’m leaving on Sunday, the 6th to go to Germany (to visit my husband’s family) then to India (to visit my daughter, Heidi), then on to Papua New Guinea. I arrive there on January 17. While there I plan to attend the Mesem New Testament celebrations and also deliver new Nabak hymnbooks to the Nabak people. I would love to go to Kasanombe and Baindoang but I don’t know if those airstrips are still open. I’m not open to hiking for a week like I used to do in my younger life.Please pray : — that I will make good contacts with Nabak church leaders and my adopted family there. — that I can be an encouragement to my many friends there. I want them to know I have not forgotten them. — Pray for the workers at the Swiss Mission printery that there will not be any hitches as they print this book. The hymnbook will be my farewell gift to the Nabak as I don’t plan on making more trips around the world. I’m sure the Lord will put together some divine appointments for me. — Pray that the Mesem will receive their New Testaments with joy and an eagerness to be students of the Word. –Please also pray for me in these next few days that I will get everything on my TO DO lists accomplished. I haven’t started packing yet.
My trip back to the U.S. is to leave Papua New Guinea on the 14th of February. I’m visiting friends and speaking to some ladies in Cairns. Then fly from Cairns, Australia to Guam on Feb. 18, then to Honolulu. I leave Honolulu on Feb. 17th and arrive in Newark on the l8th of Feb.
No, that isn’t a typo!
Yes, I’ll be exhausted.
