him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for
once again in the precious name of the Lord Jesus Christ. We trust
that all is well with each one.
This past month the church here was able to place another article in the
local weekly newspaper and we continue to trust that the Lord will use
these articles to His glory. As I have stated in other mission reports,
we are emphasizing the gospel, with the present article being taken from
The Australia Department of Immigration sent an email confirmation late
this month notifying us that they granted our visa applications.
The visas are approved for a two-year period and are renewable. We
are very thankful for this blessing.
It was also a blessing to receive our shipment of our goods that were in
Papua New Guinea (but had been sitting in a Singapore shipping warehouse
for a year). The electronic things such as Cydís electric piano and
our desktop computer both worked, for which we thank the Lord. I
am still waiting on the Risograph copy machine parts to arrive from the
USA before I can fix it. The crates of furniture and things from
the USA are here in the country now, but are going through customs
and quarantine as required by the Australian government. We hope
that it will be released to us in a few weeks time.
It worked out to be able to talk via a Skype conference call once again
with the New Testament Baptist Church in Dover, TN and Brother Larry Lafferty
during their missionís conference. It was a blessing to be able to
have a brief visit over such a great distance.
Sister Chat Madeira, who is a member of the church here, was informed this
month that she has a malignant tumor in the eye socket area of her face
and will be needing a major surgery soon to remove it and then reconstructive
surgery. We appreciate your prayers for her as the Lord brings her
Thank you for your continued prayers, love, encouragement, and support
for the Lordís work in Australia and Papua New Guinea.
