Passports… Check.

Work Permits… Check!

Visas…

In 2008, the last time we were headed to Papua New Guinea, it took us almost seven months to get this far in the paperwork process. This time it has only taken only three. We started the process back in December by applying for new passports. They arrived in January. Then in February we filled out applications and gathered all the necessary documents for our work permits into one package, and sent that over to Papua New Guinea. In March - this month - we received word that the work permits had been approved! Now all we have left are visas...

There are times in a race - even an endurance race - that you just have to kick it into gear and go! For us, the last eleven weeks have been a sprint during a race that started last September and won't end until we step on a plane bound for Papua New Guinea. Since the last week of December we have presented the work God is doing in PNG fifteen times in churches between eight and 1,300 miles away. Now we get to cruise, if only for a little while...

Way back in the fall of 2006, during the last semester of my M.A. program, I took Hebrew 1. I did so primarily because I wanted to be able to read technical commentaries of the Old Testament without my eyes glazing over! It was hard, but I loved it. So even though I had graduated, I enrolled in Hebrew 2 as a conference course the spring of 2007. Good idea, bad timing. Continuing with Hebrew would be a great help in teaching; but we were suddenly off visiting churches, then packing up, then leaving for the field. Hebrew went to the back burner. Until October of 2010 that is, when I was asked to help teach a course in Hebrew to national translators of the Old Testament....

When it comes to rapidly depreciating items, the most economical solution is to buy a good one and then run it into the ground! This is true for new cars, and new computers. Before we first went to Papua New Guinea, laptops had become one of the tools of the trade. Bible translation, teaching, correspondence, ordering supplies, all assisted by computers. Twenty one years ago we bought our first computer and since then we have owned one used, and several new laptops. Aside from one that was stolen, we have watched each of them meet their ultimate demise. We have come to that place once again...

We are now just six months away from our planned departure date! Alicia will be attending the school on the station where we will be living (Ukarumpa), and the academic year begins in mid-July. We found out just how important that deadline is when we tried to start Daniel and Stefanie mid-term. (It was a mess that plagued them the next two and a half years.) In order to make it to Papua New Guinea by then, we are visiting churches as late as possible.

Facebook is a great way to post pictures and perhaps jot a quick update. I asked Alicia to do some work on the ministry page and she did a great job. There are several albums all showing different aspects of our life in PNG and sometimes I make a post. You can see all of this even if you do not have a Facebook account. If you are a member, you can leave a message or post comments. Also, you can “Like” us. Just go to www.facebook.com and search for “Mundhenk’s Ministry” or Click Here.
