Greetings once again from Port Moresby.
The month of February has quickly sped by for us. The mission work is going
well and the Lord has blessed us with some new visitors this month, which
is always a blessing. We are still working on getting shipments of literacy
and Bible study materials to the brethren in the highlands. This is not
an easy job because the area of the Southern Highlands where we are sending
the materials is remote and there is not a post office near them. Too,
the materials come from other areas of PNG and from that point to the Southern
Highlands, there are no flights to the airstrips near these villages. Therefore,
we are having the materials sent to us here in Port Moresby and then we
will send them up to the highlands by air cargo. It will be more expensive
than if we could ship materials straight from point a to point b, but it
is not possible.
Besides the necessary paperwork and continual visits to various offices
for the building permits and
connections of utilities,
I have been getting quotations on building supplies. We are investigating
types of construction,
looking for that which is both durable and affordable. We have not yet
decision whether to
use steel or timber in the construction. Thank you so much for the special
offerings that have been given toward this building need.
I have already purchased some of the needed fencing materials and hope
to begin work on the fence around the property as soon as we have the water
connected. We are planning to build a six foot high "spike" fence which
is made out of one inch square tubes that are welded about four inches
apart on the railing of the fence. It is a stronger and more secure fence
than other types.
In Port Moresby, a strong perimeter fence is essential due to the crime
problems here. In addition to taking such means to protect life and property,
people learn to be constantly vigilant and aware of things going on around
them. Therefore, we are confronted with the problem of getting our fence
built without it being stolen from us in the process. It is entirely likely
that whatever work we accomplish in a dayís time will be stolen that night
unless we find a way to secure it. Including the fence posts that have
been cemented into the ground. We will try to follow Nehemiahís example
(Nehemiah 4:9). Once we get the fence up, it will be much easier
to look after everything.
Thank you all once again for your continued love, prayers, encouragement,
and support on behalf of the Lordís work here in Papua New Guinea.
Love in Christ,
Brother Frank James
