Family to Hewa...

Post by JMG » Mon Jul 01, 2019 1:30 pm

Just pasting in an update letter we sent out to our supporter email list yesterday...

Tomorrow morning our family leaves for the hangar at 4:30 am so we can leave at first light to go back to Hewa. This is the first time since we returned to PNG this past February that Jessi and the girls have been able to go in with me. Please be praying for Jessi over the next couple weeks that we are there, that her health would remain good and that she would not have any pancreas issues or auto-immune flare ups.

While we are there I will be teaching 2 Timothy for the first time. Our co-worker finished its translation this past year and this will be the first time for it to be formally taught to the church. Please pray for me to have wisdom to say only what God wants them to hear. Pray for the Hewa church to have hungry hearts and that they would take the truths they will hear and put them into practice, and pray for the Hewa church leaders as they teach and model God’s Word for the rest of the church.

Our time back here has not been without its challenges, and should history be an indicator, I doubt the days to come will be smooth sailing either. However, this doesn’t come as news or a shock. Following Jesus comes with risks. In fact, it comes by death. Death to one’s self. Jesus Himself told us this. But He also told us to take His yoke upon us because He is gentle and His yoke it is light. It’s light because Jesus Himself bears the weight of it. He bore it when He was nailed to the cross and He defeated the burden of death when he rose from the grave. That isn’t a fairytale or just a nice story we tell. We stake our lives on it. We put our eternity in His hands…that’s where it’s safe.

We love and appreciate each of you and remain so thankful for your support and for being our partners in this work. What a day it will be when we all stand before God and you get to meet your Hewa brothers and sisters!

Prayed for what you asked for and then some.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.
