Hello! I just wanted to send a quick note to all of my faithful friends. While I am in PNG please use my Wycliffe email account and NOT my yahoo account. It will end up saving me money and I will have more time to read your messages. Here it is: Thank you so much. ALSO, I am going to cancel my POB address in Madang and have my mail sent to the Pacific Orientation Course's POB. This too will save me money. That address is: Box 872 Madang 511 Papua New Guinea Thank you so much for your prayers. Please pray for my health as my body adjusts itself to the new weather and climate. My face is already broken out and I have bug bites all over. :) FUN FUN!

Dena Arrived in PNG

Hey there everyone!


She arrived in PNG around 6pm Montana time, tonight. All of her luggage showed up in perfect condition and there were not any delays or hang ups all the way there. AMAZING! Thanks for your prayers. She had an empty seat next to her on the way to Tokyo and also from Tokyo down to PNG, so that was FANTASTIC and she was able to get a little bit of sleep. She didn’t even sound tired when I talked with her. She said that the excitement will probably wear off and it will hit her, but for now, she feels wonderful.

She has already eaten Pumpkin Soup for her first meal, which I think she really liked and she said it is BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL! She said it is a combination between Tanzania and Costa Rica. It smells like Africa (you know the smoky burning smell) and the jungle is just like Costa Rica.

She only had three minutes to talk, but it was nice to hear her voice and of course I cried a little bit while visiting, but she didn’t! She sounded wonderful! Our GOD is so faithful. She sounded giddy on the phone. She hopes to get a cell phone over there that is really cheap compared to the land line and she thinks we will get to chat about once a week. I can’t wait.

Thanks for your prayers. They have been answered so far.
In Him,

My First Blog

We are on the TWO WEEK countdown for my departure to Papua New Guinea (PNG). There are many things to do around the house, including: packing, packing, visiting, packing, organizing, visiting friends, packing, sending out prayer letters, packing, and playing with Heidi! :)

That's all for now! Check in at a later date to find out how it is all progressing.
