Prayer Needed

We are requesting special prayer for two people tonight. Francesca Tomaing underwent extensive surgery today for breast cancer. So far no word has come of how she did through and after surgery. Please uphold her and her family in prayer. Junior Campbell, Martha’s dad, will have full body scans today and Wednesday will see the oncologists for results. We are praying for healing, but we know God’s will will be best. Our every breath is in His hands and we will rejoice in Him alone! Thanks for praying with us!


We want to welcome our newest grand daughter, Mackenzie Smith! She was born January 11 at 7:48pm, weighing 8 pounds and was 21 inches long. Congratulations to our son, Paul, and wife, Dawn! Love from proud grandparents, Da and G’Ma.

Struggle with Travel in PNG

This is the Kumalu River in Mumeng, our only access road to Lae. As you can see, there is no longer a road after another flash flood swept through. Luther ad Jim Blume waited 4 hours, but no hope of getting to Lae that day. This week it opened again for traffic! Who knows about tomorrow?
