We just bought plane tickets!
Due to the availability of in-country flights, we won’t arrive in Ukarumpa (our final destination) until June 8. So, we booked a flight departing on June 4, with a short stopover in Manila before catching another overnight flight to Port Moresby, the capital of Papua New Guinea.
While we are so, so excited that this is all finally happening after years of waiting and preparation, we know that this transition will have its share of grieving. On days when this seems especially hard to cope with, we remember that God is faithful! He opened this door, stirred our hearts for this ministry, and has shown His provision for us every step of the way. Now is the time when we need to cling to His promises:
Please pray with us that we would always remember God’s faithfulness and calling, and that He promises to be with us in this move (Matthew 28:20).
Love from Matt, Emily, & Elijah
