In Port Moresby

We're here in Port Moresby waiting on our last flight to Mt Hagen. The feild office worker from Kudjip is here in the capital with a few doctors for a conference, so we are on his laptop now. Sorry if my writing is uncreative or drab but we are really starting to feel the jet lag. We're are about to head out to lunch with some of the doctors at a hotel near by and then we have our 1 hour flight to Mt Hagen and will get to Kudjip at around 5pm. It's a funny feeling, being so exited and anxious as well as being sleep deprived and stressed all on top of seeing all there is here in Port Moresby. We'll be sure to put a new post up soon after we get settled in Kudjip. Until then...

In Singapore

We finally made it to Singapore!!! after a 16 hour flight to Hong Kong and a 3 1/2 hour flight to Singapore we are here and exhausted. We are lucky enough to stay with the Ward family here in Singapore. The Ward's served in PNG for 21 years and are now here in Malaysia as directors for Missions in this region. I would love to write more but I'm pretty tired since we left at Eureka at 7am on Sat. the 29th and we just arrived here at 1am Monday the 31st (Crazy time change=massive jet lag). So good night, or good afternoon, whatever it is in your neck of the woods!

Got our Tickets

We finally have all of our visas and our plane tickets! Rachel and I will be leaving on Sat the 29th and getting to the Hospital in Kudjip Papua New Guinea on Sept 2, which is sooner than we recently thought. Rachel and I are both exited and nervous the the adventure that is so close but once seemed so far away. It is only by the grace and love of God that we are able to embark on such a mission. We have seen that God works on his time, not ours, and learned a great deal about patience in the last few months. Wow, we haven't even left yet and God has taught us so much already. Also we would not survive with out your prayer support from our family, friends, and church families, for that we say thank you!
This is the first of many posts on our blog. We will be posting here and sending emails regularly, so please feel free to check out how we are doing any time and let us know how you are doing back in your neck of the woods.
