Conference

Sorry we haven’t posted in a while.  We have been crazy busy!  Here is part of the reason why. This weekend was our annual conference. This is a time for all of the NTM missionaries in our area (There are three different areas in PNG) who live in the bush to come out here to…

Science Class

There is a sure advantage to living in PNG when it comes to science class. I decided our topic of study for the week should be grasshoppers since we see them all the time and we recently read about a swarm of them in a Little House book. I asked Daddy to grab a few…
