We have finally made it. After years of preparation studying at Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS) and Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics (GIAL) we are no located in the village of Lossu, NIP, PNG. The language that is spoken here is Notsi. In the coming months Gertrude and I will begin to learn this language. This will allow me to work towards helping the translators with exegetical support. This is a picture of the house we will be staying in. It is quite different from the house we stayed in while in Simbini. There is a full kitchen with stove, refrigerator, washing machine and sink with running water. There is even a 12v fan that runs from our solar power. We are so thankful that we have been blessed with such a wonderful place. When we first arrived we were given opportunity to get the place setup. In a few days we will start our language learning in earnest.
Another blessing as we are here is that we have cell phone access. This allows me to be able to connect to the internet to upload and download my email. We are always thankful to hear from you, but please don’t send forwarded emails to us with pretty pictures.
