Maria John

If you've come to visit Kudjip, there is a good chance you've met John Opa.

We've known John for as long as we've been in PNG...he introduces himself as our PNG papa and us as his family.  I've lost track of how many times we've been to his home on top of a nearby mountain, and he's one of Miles's favorite Papua New Guineans.

John and his wife, Maria, need our prayers.  Maria either has a brain tumor or TB in her brain.  Unfortunately, she hasn't been responding to the TB meds, which means cancer is the more likely and untreatable option.  We are thankful Maria knows and loves the Lord.  Pray for Maria.  Pray for healing.  Pray for John. Pray for their son Peter and daughter-in-law, Rosemary.  Pray for their grandchildren, Junior and Rachel.
