July 1, 2010: Madang, Papua New Guinea: Why do we leave the comforts and safety of our home to go to a far away place; to people that we do not know; at tremendous expense to ourselves and to others? This morning I was roused from sleep just prior to sunrise and captured this photo, just hours before we leave Papua New Guinea. We have come to love and to serve and to be an example, a beacon of light (Matthew 5:13-16) to a people whose lives and hardships are legions greater than our own. Yet as I walked along the ocean this morning, I can’t forget my own humanity and where I have come from (Titus 3:3-8). Thank you for being part of our team!
