good news from the land of missouri

funny that i was in missouri over new year's and had no idea that the family i might live with in png were (and currently still are) there, too! i personally think that God gets a kick out of so called "coincidences."

i had emailed the family with the inquiry about living with them in png this summer shortly after returning home from missouri this winter. the email was sent almost a month ago and i had not heard a single response. so i contacted ntm's headquarters and asked if there was a different email or better way to contact the them, and the only reply i got was that they may not have internet acces where they currently are. i know, right? then...after chapel today...i ritually checked my email...and lo and behold...there was an email from them! apparently, they thought i was spamming them and had not opened up the original email. i guess i should come up with more informative subject lines.

here is a short reply from shannon:
They are basically excited to begin praying and considering what the Lord might have in store. There are some unknowns with them as well, but at this point we are all trusting in the Lord.

based upon the Lord's provision and guidance, i get to stay in png with one of two amazing families after ntm training! that's the update for now. i meet with my advisor next week and will have more information then. thank you for your continual prayers.

psalm 100
shout joyfully ot the Lord, all the earth
serve the Lord with gladness;
come before Him with joyful singing
knwo that the Lord Himself is God;
it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves
we are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
