Give praise to the Lord, proclaim His name; make known among the nations what He has done. Psalms 105:1
It has been three and a half years, since the church was born in Kaje, Papua New Guinea. Over these years, Jon and Jen Myers have been able to stand in awe at the power of the Lord to change hearts. They have very literally been able to witness a people group who a short time ago knew only darkness, be transformed before their very eyes by the light of the Saviour. They often tell the Kaje about those whose faithful financial support, and prayers enable them to be able to live and work among the Kaje. Please do not underestimate the power of your prayers. Jon and Jen have seen prayer at work over this last decade in their own lives and in the Kaje’s. They ask you to keep praying earnestly for your brothers and sisters in Kaje. Life in Kaje is often monotonous and full of hardships. The believers are challenged with rejoicing in Christ while facing the challenges of living in the middle of the jungle, where modern day conveniences mostly do not exist for them. They are trying to love one another unconditionally, while living in proximity with one another, and having almost no space or time to themselves. They have learned and are continuing to learn, that knowing the Lord, does not make their lives easy or remove hardships from them.
Over the last almost ten years, Jon and Jen’s kids have spent less than one year in their home country with two separate short furloughs combined. This has resulted in these third culture kids feeling like PNG is their home country. They love that their kids love their home in Kaje and are so comfortable. However, their oldest is now fifteen, and about to start her sophomore year of high school. They are thankful to have the opportunity to return to the USA for a school year in August, for a whole school year. Praise the Lord, He has provided a place for them to live and for their kids to be able to go to a Christian school.
They are so thankful for the way the Lord has opened this door for their family and provided for them. It is going to be a huge transition for them as a family and their kids are very heartbroken to leave their home. Please pray for them.
