PNG Update – Ukarumpa 4

Dear Friends, Family, and Partners,

Touch daughters3Mikayla and Emily were recently part of the Ukarumpa Girls’ Touch Rugby team.  They competed in several matches over the short seven-week season. They won or tied most of their games. It was a special treat for our girls as it was their first time playing the sport. During the Eastern Highlands High School Sports Provincial Tournament our nine-person team came through the day undefeated! It was a wonderful experience for all the girls.

Mikayla and Emily just started term 2. They are both playing basketball on the varsity team and I have the pleasure to be coaching both girls on the same team for the first time.

Sports are a terrific outlet after a day of rigorous academics.  Each girl is meeting the challenge of our highly academic school. It is a blessing for Molly and I to see them embrace their time here as teenagers.

A special thank you to everyone who makes it possible for us to be serving in PNG once again and for those who are lifting us in prayer.
