Living Life


We have been in Papua New Guinea for a little over a month and have settled into a rental home on the NTM mission center.

Thank you all for praying for us as we get back into “living life” as a family.

Jon got right back into flying, thanks to the expertise of his flight instructor John Mark Estelle. Jon did his first flight on his own last week in the Kodiak. Can you imagine his excitement? Back in PNG doing what he loves best, serving our church planting missionaries through aviation. Talk about having contented hearts in seeing all that God has done to get Jon back into the cockpit with mission aviation. This has been quite the ride guys!!

The boys are loving the weather, mud puddles, all day play outside in the summer-type weather and having kids galore to play with around the center. We’ve also started homeschooling again.

I have been over-the-moon excited to be in MY OWN house, setting up our house, puttering around my kitchen, cooking meals and nestling into life here in PNG. There is a great group of ladies here to get to know and I’ve already made some sweet sweet friends!

Praise God from whom ALL BLESSINGS flow!!

Thank you guys for following along and praying us back to the mission field. God is soo good, and He gives good gifts!

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17

  3. Been following you since we embarked on our own faith journey to enter the mission field, just about the time Jon lost his leg. You and your blog have been an encouragement, thank you.

    Praise the Lord. We can picture Jon in our minds souring above the clouds, on his way to some outback mission station. We continue to remember the whole family before the thine of God in prayer.
    We sure are living in some sad days, the way the world and man has turned on himself, I personally feel we are in our last days in this world. But praise God for you, who are willing to serve the Lord. We are amazed at how you just kept going in times of adversity, you had a passion for the lost. I think of my own country how we have had the gospel over and over again, and people just turn their back on God they don’t want to know. We are glad that the boys are well settled, along with mum.
    God bless for now
    Geoff & Gwen Grace & Peace.
