Tomorrow we leave for the “Highlands Conference,” which is a five-day gathering of all the NTM missionaries in the highlands region here in Papua New Guinea. It will be a great chance for us to meet other missionaries and find out about the work that is currently going on here. We ask that you would be praying for wisdom and direction on our behalf because, among other things, we will be learning about all the current missionary teams who are in need of new partners (potentially us.) We won’t know for some time now whether we will end up joining one of these existing teams or forming a new one, but this will be one of the best opportunities we get to learn about the possibilities. Please pray that God would use this time to give us clarity.

In other news, tonight we made guacamole and tortilla chips. Guacamole we’ve done before, but the chips were a first for us. Elizabeth made the tortilla dough, I rolled it out, fried the tortillas, and cut them into chip shapes, then Elizabeth fried those–all table-side.* Beat that, On The Border!


*By “table-side” I mean that our table was beside us even though we were in the kitchen since our apartment is so small.

P.S. I’m not sure what kind of interweb access we will have while at the conference, so we might be out of the loop until Sunday.

    Yummy! Praying for you all during the conference. Blessings and good morning. 🙂

  3. I’ll be honest. The making of chips makes me happy and amazed, but also a little sad. Are chips too expensive to buy? Or was this a, “hey, wonder if we can make chips” thought? Either way, I think you need a care package with chips in it.

      We haven’t seen tortilla chips in any stores here, but the avocados are plentiful so we wanted to have some guacamole.

    Bread, cinnamon rolls, now tortilla chips. There’s nothing she can’t make!!

      Don’t forget the sour cream she made, too!
