Would you carry the bucket?
"The LORD will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength." Isaiah 58:11 NLT
The Borona men in Kenya, East Africa dig wells by hand that are 20 and sometimes 30 feet deep in rocky dry river beds. Once a well is dug, a team of men stand on wooden ladders inside the well to pass up leather okhales filled with water. The men sing to celebrate as this life-giving liquid is passed upward. At the top, the men take the water and pour it into a trough for the cattle to quench their thirst. Although those pouring the water in the trough are the ones to see the results, it is the team's effort that watered the cattle. Likewise, we need a team of people with us who are willing to bring the life-giving Word to those who are thirsty. Would you carry the bucket? Many have already joined our team, and are giving faithfully to send us to Papua New Guinea (PNG). We are so thankful for how the Lord has strengthened and built up each and every member of our team of partners. Each person plays a vital role in sending. God has grown our partnership team in ways that we could never have dreamed, and we are so excited to lack only 35% or our needed monthly financial support before being released to serve in PNG. Each commitment brings us closer to 100%. Our prayer is that we can transition our girls from the school here in SC to the school system in PNG during the summer months. The school year here ends on May 24th and the school year begins in PNG on July 18th. Wouldn't it be exciting if the Lord would allow our departure to PNG to be within the next three months? If you feel the Lord tugging at your heart to partner with our family to help carry the Water of Life to Bibleless people groups in PNG, would you please contact us? Each person who partners with us is participating in bringing the Bible to those who still do not have one, just like each man who passes the bucket waters the thirsty cattle. Thirsty to serve Him in PNG, Marty, Sara, Taylor, Tia, Miriam and Jade
PNG Glimpse This month we would like to share a short excerpt from a blog by Amanda Wulff, a kindergarten teacher working with Wycliffe in PNG. The particular post that we are sharing with you is entitled, There May be a Caterpillar. It is about a second grader advertising for the Teen Center. "One boy wrote about Teen Center. Some Friday nights a number of the teens run a "restaurant" that we call Hamburger Night. At Hamburger Night you can get all kinds of food and socialize with friends. This little boy wrote something similar to this. Topic: Teen Center Teen Center is soooooo fun! You can get hamburgers and chips (that means fries for you Americans) and they are big. You can get milkshakes. They also have salads which may have caterpillars. The milkshakes are cold. You should go to Teen Center. It is the best!" Aren’t kids amazingly adaptable?! We can't wait to experience the truly organic foods PNG has to offer. Airfare Besides the need for monthly partnerships, we have only one other need that must be met before we are able to move to Papua New Guinea. That need is our airfare. Until now, we have been so focused on building our partnership team that we have not mentioned this need. However now that we are drawing closer to seeing God bring our team to completion, we are faced with the fact that we must ask for your help. We have recently made contact with a wonderful travel agency in Texas that comes highly recommended by other Wycliffe members for discounted missionary rates. What a blessing this company has already been to our family as we "learn the ropes" of international travel. However, even with extremely discounted rates, we still need approximately $15,000 to travel one way to PNG. Can you help us with this need? We know that numbers aren't a problem for God, and that He isn't surprised by these figures. That alone gives us such peace and comfort. If God leads you to give, please specify that your gift is for our airfare. We are so thankful for anything that the Lord may lead you give.
