Update and Continued Prayer

  As I (Phyllis) sit to write this evening, I am rejoicing and yet heavy hearted all at the same time.   To God be the glory, our family is finished with quarantine, and we are free to go and come from our house now…we are thankful for that!!!   However, there is also heaviness around us and in us as we see and know people who are living in turmoil amid all the election upheaval here in Papua New Guinea.   There are no easy answers.   Homes are being burned, lives are being uprooted, and belongings are being ransacked and stolen as the fighting continues.   Please pray for wisdom for us as we desire to help and show a different way!   Our God is ABLE, and this is a part of why we are here….people won’t always hear our words, BUT they can see our lives and the inner peace we can maintain while in the midst of conflict around us.   Please pray for opportunities to share JESUS….HE is the Difference Maker!!!
