Reflecting on God’s Goodness

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Our week has been full up with friends & fun in the sun!
What a dream come true to be back here in Cairn’s Australia!!!

On Friday we visited with the Doc’s & nurses at the hospital where we spent 5 months. What a reunion! And guys, what a privilege, Jon shared for 20 min about all God did to save his life, shared the gospel & what our work looks like in PNG!!
We walked through the Ortho ward & so many memories came flooding back, it felt incredible to walk into the ward whole & healthy again. To be able to say thanks to the team that helped save Jon’s life…it was priceless guys!!!

Jon next wish was to walk the Esplande hand in hand. Every day we walked it with me pushing his wheelchair, he would say, “One day we’ll walk here hand in hand!” God knew it would happen just 16 months later. Praise God, praise Him for paving the way for us!!

Our hearts are brimming tonight as we finish up yet another day filled with seeing our dear friends. Tomorrow is our last day in Cairns.

To be back in Cairns, reflecting on ALL that God has done and brought us through has been such an amazing time.

Please be praying for us, we depart for Port Morseby, PNG on Wednesday early morning. We have a long layover there. Jon is scheduled to take a PNG flight physical during our stop. Pray he can get it done, sometimes PNG appt’s can run on “island time.” Pray he can get the test done & passes it.

Thank you all for following along on our journey!!
“I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works. (Psalms 9:1 NKJV)

  3. Thanks for sharing all these reasons to praise our marvelous God! We will pray that passing the flight physical is one of the next reasons. We will also pray for Jon’s testimony to the great folks in Cairns to bear much fruit. Love you guys!
