Then and Now

Three years ago we came to PNG with a five year old, a three year old, and an eight month old...

Two days after we arrived

Tomorrow we are leaving with an eight year old, a six year old, and a 3 year old...


We will step foot on American soil for the first time in three years on May 14th. Overall I would say that our first term as tribal missionaries has gone well. We have had some hard times for sure, but we have never been alone. The Lord has walked with us each step of the way.

We will spend the next few days traveling and hopefully having some fun. Please pray for us that all the flights go well and that we transition easily back into American life. Pray especially for Mia who doesn't remember anything but this. We will be home for the next nine months and then will return here to PNG and our Hewa home.

Thanks so much to each person who has walked this journey with us through prayer and financial support. We have felt your love and prayers every step of the way.


  1. Wow. I can't believe this year has gone so quickly by. It seems like just weeks ago that you were saying you'd be going home at the beginning of the summer...and that was in the fall. I will be praying for your family as you transition and take care of all those things that need to be done. THANK you for taking us on this journey with you!!

  2. Happy and safe travels to you!

  3. God bless you guys!!!! safe travels
