The Roller Coaster of Life, And a Story of Faith

The building process is moving along!
Our Bible College is being started, and we are excited to see what God has in the future!
As many know we tore down our old conference center in May of 2021, and just trusted God that he would make a way for our new Bible College.
Well...
We have started clearing out the land, and purchasing the materials, and I am excited to announce that we will be Lord Willing having our 2022 National Conference under the new bible college roof!
During our Deputation we will really be pushing to raise the funds for the completion of the Bible college, but should have the framework, and the roof completed before the beginning of September! 

A Story of Faith
In 1994 the Price family came to PNG to start a Bible College, and there were many obstacles. They started doing some training, and teaching, but the college was just something that was not able to be started, or built. In 2001 the Barnett family came to PNG to carry on the flame, and a bible college was planned, but the same things happened. While the Barnett's were in PNG the headquarters property was moved to Tega, which is where it is now. The original plan for this property included a bible college, but the Barnett's were only on the property for roughly 5 years. When we moved here in 2019 there was a lot going on, and as time went by the training center we had just became way too much of a risk to have, so we had a crew come in and tear it down in an act of faith. Now in 2022 we have more vision than ever to have a bible college in PNG, and we are excited to announce the process has started!

Now on to the question of the day...
As a missionary what is one of your biggest obstacles?

IMMIGRATION!!!!

I found out this week that Ezekiel's visa expires on his 18th birthday. 
Everyone else's expires in September, so we all just assumed everyone's expired together. We Were Wrong...
Now We are going to try to fill out an extension through PNG Immigrations to have his visa extended for 90 days so we can keep him here in PNG until we all come back together. the tickets for September have already been purchased, and are non refundable, so we are praying to find favor with Immigrations here in PNG, and that Ezekiel will be able to stay.

Please continue to pray about this matter!
