Hello Friends!

Since Teddy and I will be sharing our different perspectives through the blog while we are away next year...we thought it would be a good idea for me (Rachel) to have a turn posting something.  : )

 Samaritan's Purse recently sent this AMAZING video about some of the work being done in Papua New Guinea.  Near the beginning of the video, you will see Kudjip Nazarene Hospital, where we will be working/living.  (You may want to have tissues nearby!)

In HIM, 
Rachel (and Teddy)

On HIS Path

The days are passing quickly now...
Only 45 days before we depart on August 26th! 

Thanks be to God, we recently received the last bit of formal paperwork required for us to work in PNG for a year, so we are GOOD TO GO!  :-)

After 3 long years of Pediatric training, we attended my Residency graduation in June. We're both still working through the summer, but it's great to have come through all these years of education (by God's grace alone, I assure you), and now see the fast approaching Light of God's work being prepared for us in PNG at the end of the proverbial tunnel. 
We just can't wait!

Anyone else LOVE the hot Summer weather?!  Well I do, and every chance we get, we're outside enjoying it with our dear friends and family.

The house we have been renting is now on the market, and we have started packing! After 9 years of marriage, it seems we've accumulated quite a few items, so we're taking Jesus' advice...

Jesus said:
"If you want to be perfect, Go
Sell your possessions and Give to the poor, 
and you will have treasure in heaven. 
Then come, follow me!
(Matthew 19:21)

A sketch of a vision shared with us by a dear sister in Christ:  
3 shields lighting our path and guarding our way 
to serve in PNG. 

A Recent Prayer:
Lord, You are here with us in this last hour - 
our lives, mere grains of sand on the endless shore of Your creation. 
We are in awe of this perspective, Your Upper Story, 
knitting all time and souls together - working out perfectly. 
Would you open our eyes and heart today to Your greater will? 
Broaden our minds to understand Your anointing in Truth, 
that we would recognize every Spirit, discern every opportunity, 
and embrace the changing power of Your Son through us. 
Guard Rachel and me today and every day from this world's shroud of darkness, 
and bend us to embrace every challenge - 
that Hope by Faith would bear the fruit of Righteousness. 
We welcome Your teaching Father, 
as You have promised all those anointed in Christ. 
Spare not the lessons of repetition, the cane of discipline, or the testing by fire - 
We are Your willing pupils and ready heirs. 
To Your Glory Lord, Amen!

THANK YOU all for your continued prayers and support !!!
