A New Home Print E-mail

One of the perennial problems for missions in general, and CLTC in particular, has been finding the personnel to get the job done. It is typical for CLTC to be scrambling to line up instructors to teach all the classes. Additionally, one goal is to have as many Papua New Guineans fill those positions as possible, but typically there are simply not enough nationals with master’s degrees to teach all the classes. So, when we received an email saying that all the teaching positions at CLTC were filled, we were stunned…

Every time God has placed us somewhere in PNG, our hearts have adopted it as home.  When we lived on an outstation in the lowlands, that was home. When He moved us to CLTC in the highlands, that became home. So when CLTC told us they had no positions for us to fill, we lost our home.

However, that is not the end of the story! All of the work we have done in PNG God has been using to prepare us for another task. Wycliffe Bible Translators (known as SIL in Papua New Guinea) has for years wanted to expand their training center for nationals, but they have not had the personnel to get the job done (sound familiar?). God immediately brought this to our minds and we have since received a formal invitation from SIL to come and help them. Michelle will work as a part-time receptionist at the clinic, and I will be a full-time teacher! Our new home awaits us, and we can’t wait to get back!
