A HUGE Blessing! First Time Home-Owners!


Back in 2012 God must have known what he was doing, because we posted this blog post…


We wanted to show you all what houses looked like in Papua New Guinea. Unknowingly, we began looking for houses in Ukarumpa to buy and came across one that we liked a lot. It needed some fixing up, so the owners decided to GIFT us this house. WOW! Crazy huh? Most houses here costs between $10,000-30,000, so to be given a house is such a blessing. Turns out-it was the same exact house that we posted pictures of back in May 2012! I just can’t get over how God works in our lives sometimes…and I feel like this verse really applies…

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD.” He knows ya’ll…

So we are now FIRST TIME home owners in Papua New Guinea, never could have imagined that! A HUGE thank you to the Oates family for gifting us this house!



The Missionary House

God has once again blessed us more than we can imagine. How you ask? Well he has supplied a fully furnished-and by fully furnished I don’t just mean furniture I mean spices, food, pots, pans, shampoo, EVERYTHING we could possibly need or want-4 bedroom house that is specifically rented out to missionaries. WOW! We moved in last night and I have been unpacking our stuff (which we really don’t NEED here. Its crazy.) I’m thinking another yard sale is in our near future. Ha. We were so blessed by our friends and family for helping us move the still enormous amount of stuff that we have. We will be here for a little over 8 months as our suspected departure time will be around August 9th.

One more step closer to PNG!

Layla definitely approves of the huge backyard!
