1.) Turn a knob
However, the oven that we currently have in our house works a little differently. It works like this:
1.) Open oven door
2.) Turn knob to 200ish degrees Celsius
3.) Get out your long pincher tool (normally used for laparoscopic surgery...i think?)
4.) Light a match
5.) Grab the match with the pinching tool
6.) Simultaneously hold the match at the back of the oven while pulling a little lever at the bottom right of the oven
7.) Hold the little lever until the flame stays by itself
I never would have figured this out on my own...thankfully I'm surrounded by very helpful friends!! :)

Matthew and Rebekah are officially wed!! They had a BEAUTIFUL wedding on top of a mountain that overlooks the town of Hagen.
One of my favorite parts of the wedding was a time of worship, before the official ceremony, when we all faced out towards the valley and sang praises to the LORD!! There is something awesome about singing of the glory of God while standing on top of a mountain looking out over His creation!
I feel like the pictures just don’t do justice to how beautiful it really was.
We are so happy for the lovely bride and the handsome groom!! May the Lord continue to bless their lives together!

I am 100% committed to conquering the tortilla while I’m here in PNG. Last time we were in PNG I attempted making tortillas once and failed miserably!! BUT this time I’m determined to be triumphant. I’ve already had round one with the floury little boogers!! (huh…didn’t know floury was actually a word??)

As many people who are reading this already know…Jordan and I were back in the States for the past four months and for the last couple of those we were able to travel around and share at several churches. What an amazing experience that was!! We met some of the most wonderful people who love the Lord and are super excited about missions! Jordan and I both knew that God placed many of these people in our path to be the encouragement and affirmation that we needed!!

Jordan and I had the privilege of speaking at the Joplin Calvary Church of the Nazarene. We met some wonderful people! The city of Joplin, though, is still recovering from the tornado that hit in May.

It's been about 2 months since we arrived back in America. We've had some great times with family and friends so far. AND, since internet here in the States, is SO fantastic, we decided to post a few blogs that we meant to post a while ago from our time in PNG. Enjoy!
Our lady's bible study had a game night:
We also played Claymania, a game where you sculpt things out a clay while people guess what you are sculpting.

Jordan recently preached at the Gumang Assembly of God Church. We took a bunch of maintenance guys with us. We practiced singing a song on the way there...they did great! It was fun to step out of our comfort zones a bit and experience a different style of worship! It was a great experience. Jordan had a wonderful message on Christ's redemption and the privilege we are given to share that message with others. Then, after the service, they blessed us with a TON of food!!
