We’re on our way home!

I’m so sorry for the big blank between posts. Lots happened– best of all Jeff and I were married on July 23rd. Attached is a photo if you’re interested, and if you want to see more you can check out our new website, http://www.owenspng.com. Our wedding was a beautiful gift from God and from many, many kind and generous people who worked together to make it very special– such a blessing. Thank you to all of you who came and had a part!

Our time in the States was a blur. We told everybody that 5 1/2 weeks in America was about to be the end of us! We’re now sitting in JFK airport on our way back to PNG. We fly out early this afternoon to Tokyo, then Hong Kong with a 24-hr. layover, and finally Port Moresby and then, Lord willing, arriving in Goroka on Wednesday (Tuesday evening for most of you). We’re really blessed to be traveling with Al and Nikki Ellison, who are replacing our coworkers the Smiths while they’re on furlough for this next year. They’re delightful folks and we’re really excited to work with them. We’ll be in Goroka for a few days taking care of business and getting supplies, and then hopefully flying out to Kiari on the chopper next Wednesday (Tuesday evening your time). We can’t wait!!!

Thanks so much for your prayers!

Jeff and Elizabeth
