The Countdown begins

#‎Flashback‬ In 2003, Jon made his first trip to Papua New Guinea, where he was praying about his future as a NTM missionary pilot. (See the pictures attached.) So exciting to think we will be heading out, Lord willing, THIS Sunday Feb 7th, back to Papua New Guinea!!! ‪

Please pray for us as we prepare to leave in 4 days… Thank you guys!! We will be able to update from Australia and Papua New Guinea.

    I am so disappointed that we will miss your return to PNG by only a week. If we had been able to connect with you at the Port Moresby airport I would have squished you all with hugs and tears, and just been beside myself with joy and praise to God for all he has accomplished through you and in you this past year. We flew out of Port Moresby with Noe and Lisa and the girls on January 30 and have been sharing their first break with them in Brisbane. I am just thrilled for all of you! I will also be praying all over again for all of you and your families during yourSecond round of big goodbyes. I trust you will keep up the fantastic posts filled with scripture and reflections on how God has enabled you to persevere and triumph. Ellyn (Lisa ‘s mom)

    Dear Jon and Adie,

    It is so exciting to see what the Lord has done and also witness your faithful responses to His will in your lives. Thanks for the testimony you’ve shared with so many and lived out before others in these past months.

    The Lord truly is great and greatly to be praised!

    Blessings to you and family as you say good-byes and head back to PNG! Hope to see you at Uka at some point.

    Love – Jolene (and Rick) Nachtigal

    p.s. We are selling our house when we leave in June, waiting to see what God has for us after our third child graduates. Planning to settle in Waxhaw at the JAARS center. If you are ever there, please look us up!

Its been along road for you both, its great knowing that are heavenly father has been with you each steep of the way, he loves us so much he never fails us. We have been praying for you every day, there will be trails and ups & downs, the Lord will see you through them as you keep walking with him.

    We have kept you all in prayer since we first learned of your accident…and, have been praying for your travel safety. We are praying as you say all your good-byes to family and friends. May God bless you throughout your journey and in your work in PNG!

  8. How many prayers and answers have led to this day?! We are so excited for you. May this be the song in your heart: “Thou wilt make known to me the path of life; in Thy presence is fulness of joy; in Thy right hand there are pleasures forever.” (Ps. 16:11) We keep praying you’ll follow His path and enjoy His presence…until you get to see Him face to face at last!

  9. Judy McGinnis Sloan
