Hear the story of our newest Mission Partners to Papua New Guinea

NZCMS - Thu, 21/03/2019 - 15:45

John and Elaine moved to Papua New Guinea two weeks ago. Elaine writes a bit of their story and what they will be involved in there.

John has just finished working as a building tutor at Ara Institute of Technology, where he’s been since 1985. Over twenty years ago he took three years sabbatical to work in Mendi in the Southern Highlands, Papua New Guinea in the early 1990’s.

When we left there with our four sons, we said “Well, that’s done, goodbye PNG!”

Now we’re saying, “Who would have thought we’d go back?!”

We always thought we’d like to volunteer around retirement age but this was just slightly sooner than we imagined.

Now we have four grandsons and will have no family with us at Kapuna. We feel God has really set our path straight before us with support coming in from Gulf Christian Services, Hope Hornby Presbyterian Church and NZCMS.

I’ve worked as a Midwife and Registered Nurse and have just finished work in Christchurch. In Kapuna, I’ll be working to help with health education and anything else along those lines that is required and John is going to assist in hospital extensions, renovations and various other projects around the hospital.

Please Keep John and Elaine in your prayers as they settle into their new location and work in Kapuna, Papua New Guinea.
