him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for
ever. Amen." Romans 1:36
wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.” (Psalm
to each one of you in the precious name of our Lord who is Faithful and
Sovereign. I hope that all things continue to go well for you this
I am happy to be able to report that our immigration work has finally been
completed and Cyd and I have received our renewed entry visas for another
three-year term. These visas allow us to live in Papua New Guinea
as residents, and also to leave and enter the country as needed.
We are thankful that this process is finally finished.
Cyd contracted Malaria once again this past month but has recovered okay.
Malaria makes a person weak for some time after the medicine takes effect,
thus we are praying that she will be able to strengthen her immune system
Brother Norman just returned from a two week trip to the Pori area of the
Southern Highlands. He conducted another pastor’s course on Baptist
faith and practice. He used our translated booklet on this subject
for their curriculum. The brethren in the highlands stand in need
of further help and encouragement in the things of the Lord. We are
hopeful that after the church building in completed here in Port Moresby,
that we will be able to conduct more thorough Bible courses for them in
the near future.
Work on the church building is progressing well as we are in the process
of framing the building. We had thought about a pavilion type of
structure for the worship area where it would be basically a roof with
no walls, but we have decided to go ahead and build at least a partial
wall instead. The reason for this is due to the strong breezes that
blow here for much of the year. The church property is located in
an area where the wind seems to be particularly strong and it makes reading
our Bibles and song books difficult because of the pages blowing around.
Also, even though we have put big rubber bands and clips on Cyd’s music
book to hold it steady, I still have to hold it with my hand each song
service so that the wind does not blow it over. At the same time,
we appreciate the breeze as it greatly helps with the heat.
Once again we want to thank you for your continued prayers, love, encouragement,
and support for the Lord’s work in Papua New Guinea.
Love in Christ,
Brother Frank James
