Papua New Guinea Missions Trip

Since my wife and I have entered into this new faith ministry, this will be my first missions trip. In January 2018, I will be returning to PNG for 3 weeks. While I am there, I will be educating, equipping, and encouraging national pastors in Goroka, Jiwaka, and Mount Hagen. In Goroka, the pastors I will be working with are a part of the Via de Cristo movement in PNG. I will be teaching at the pastoral training center in Jiwaka. Then, in Mount Hagen, I will meet with and teach the district pastors of Lutheran Renewal PNG. I am excited to return to Papua New Guinea for the 13th time, especially as I am venturing into this new ministry. God has great plans for my time over there. 

I need your help to raise money for airfare, travel expenses while in PNG, some housing, and educational materials. I will be printing my lesson materials for my students when I get to PNG to save on luggage expenses, but printing is slightly more expensive in PNG.

I will be leaving on January 15th for my trip. I want to thank you in advance for partnering with me in my ministry. Many of you may never get to go to Papua New Guinea and experience the wonderful Christian fellowship that happens there. However, by supporting me, you are influencing the growth of your brothers and sisters in Christ in a foreign land. I have the great opportunity to go there myself, but I need your financial and prayer support. Any amount of financial support gets me one step closer to fulfilling God's call on my life as a missionary and evangelist. If you are not able to give financial support at this time, I still ask that you would keep me in your prayers. Pray for my safe travels, for God to work in and through me during my time there, for my family who will stay home, for the pastors in Papua New Guinea, and for the body of Christ as a whole. Thank you for whatever support you can give to me; I am believing for God's great providence.
