The Fun Outside and Fresh Fish!

 Jonathan's favorite climbing tree...and of course it becomes a spaceship when he plays with his friends.

 Doing a little fun math with his friend Micha.

 A slow going game of tether ball.

 Fish from the local fish market, Red Emperor. A great tasting white fish!

Ben and Jacob cleaning up the fish.

Play and Late Christmas Gifts!

 Watching tv and eating popcorn with dad... I love how she shows her love for her dad by holding onto his shoulder! Sometimes she will ask if she can hold my neck, and then she gives me a hug. :)

 We got a few late Christmas packages this year from the grandparents, which is always fun! This is a soccer game!

 A Beautiful rug! And Beautiful children!

 Fun, Naomi's own mixer!

 And a pinball game!

 Naomi got a Dr Seuss quilt!

Just having fun building his own version of the log home!

Enjoying Church with our Brothers and Sisters in Christ

 Jonathan is playing with his friends at church, there was no Sunday school during the school break so the kids enjoyed just playing together. Jonathan usually brings a few cars and toys to share.

Fun at the Beach!

 One of the missionary kids had a birthday and he wanted to celebrate at the beach.

 He wanted to roast pineapple over the fire and eat it with all his friends. :)

Jacob's Grandfather...

Here is a photo of Jacob's grandparents with Jonathan in August 2016. We are very sad to announce that Jacob's grandfather passed away a few days ago, due to complications from a stroke, at 86 years old. We are very sad that we cannot be home during this time with family. We wanted to ask for your prayers for Jacob's grandmother and family during this time. He will be missed greatly! We loved him dearly! But we are happy to know that he is now with his Jesus!

Back to Work!

Jacob is happy to be back to work! He works 6-7 hours a day and is able to do a few exercises and get enough rest to continue healing his leg.

Sorry, we do not have a lot of pictures of Jacob working because it is difficult for him to balance his cane, work and taking pictures! This is a fully repaired water pump system for one of our missionary homes.

Snake found while building the out houses for an upcoming retreat. With 70 people coming to live on our centre we needed extra toilets to handle the crowd!

Building the outhouses...

Many youth came out from many different church plants to learn more about standing strong as a young person in PNG. They also enjoy getting to town as they are all from remote areas.

This house will be completely renovated inside and outside walls, roof, kitchen, bathroom, electrical, etc. We are praying that Jacob's parents will be able to come over in June so that Jacob's dad can help renovate this house!

Church Down the Road

This was a special Sunday with a tambourine song and dance, in honor of Abigail, a missionary kid going back to school the next week.

Jonathan enjoys playing with the kids there... and soon they will start Sunday school again, when school break is over.

And Naomi and I hang out and watch everything and chat with the ladies... I love wearing matching meri blouses. :)
