En route to the US

Dear praying friends,

Jeff and I are sitting in the Sydney airport, waiting for our flight to Honolulu which is scheduled to depart in about an hour and a half. We have a nice window seat where we can see the Sydney skyline and Jeff can watch the airplanes! Thanks for your prayers for us as we travel. Lord willing we will arrive in Charlotte on Tuesday morning.

We left PNG with heavy hearts, but as the coastline receded behind us and we headed out over the ocean towards Australia, my prayer was that the Lord will bring us back and grant us the privilege of seeing Him break through and be glorified in Kiari.

We enjoyed our weekend in Sydney. On Saturday friend took us on a ferry across the harbor, and we were able to see the opera house and royal botanical gardens. Then yesterday we went with her to a Sudanese service in the morning and her church’s evening service, and one of her pastors and his wife had us over for lunch and took us to a nearby park to see some kangaroos, wallabys, emus, and more gardens. It was a huge blessing to worship and fellowship with the believers here.

Thanks again for your prayers!

Elizabeth Owens
