We're Safe, and Back in America

 It is bittersweet, but we are back in the US. 

We are staying in Connersville, IN waiting on deputation. 

We are continuing to pray for the situation in PNG, but it is getting worse rather than better.

The UN has been requested to come in, the mall the kids were going to to get out is now unsafe. 17 were killed outside the same place our kids were just hours ago. 

5 provinces have failed in the election, and there have been several reported murders over the past week. 

This is now the worst recorded election in PNG history. There have been more deaths, and more arrest than any other election. 

Please remember PNG in your prayers during this time of unrest.

On next week's episode I will have all of our children, and our granddaughter on the podcast. I feel it is important for people to hear what they have to say, and how they feel when we are in the field, and when things begin to collapse. There were 72 critical hours where things got bad enough for our superiors to tell us it is time to come to the US, and our kids were scared for our safety. 

Thanks, and may God continually bless you,

A Quick Update on Our Situation Please Continue To Pray

 It's been a crazy, hectic, and unpredictable week. 

Silas is still here, but the election violence continues to grow. We have evacuated Mount Hagen and came to Port Moresby for safety reasons, and are waiting things out here. 

If things continue to escalate we are unsure of what we may have to do short term. 

It has been a rough, and exhausting few days, and we are just holding on to hope. 

Please pray for PNG, our Pastors, Churches, and Saints.

God Bless,

Bro Marshall

Well, It's Election Week In Hagen...Pray Church

 It has been a pretty crazy week here in PNG. 

Silas is getting settled in good here at the headquarters, and seems to really like it here. We were able to convert my office into a bedroom so he would have his own space while he is here, and it is working out pretty well!

Sunday we had another great service at Anglimp Outreach, and Silas got a chance to greet the church for the first time, and Ezekiel interpreted for him! It was such a great Experience!

This week is election week, but everything has been postponed due to riots here in the Western Highlands. Please continue to pray for us! 7 People were shot Monday, and I am sure the tally will continue to grow. 

During elections here in PNG civil unrest is very bad, and there is a lot of fighting. We are just planning on staying close to home for the next few days and laying low. 

On my podcast this week (Link at the top of the page) I shared some exciting news about things happening here in PNG, as well as Solomon Islands, and Fiji. 

Bro Sio gave a home bible study to a man who come to find out owns a night club. The owner closed the club, and donated it to the ALJC, and it has now had 2 services held there. 

On the second week a man came, and was under conviction. Bro Sio baptized him in the name of Jesus Christ, and come to find out he was a pastor. The pastor said he sees the truth, and has now baptized his congregation in the name of Jesus Christ, and donated his church to the ALJC! 

2 Churches in 2 Weeks!!

During our conference in Fiji we had 13 ministers come as guest, and they all want to come to the ALJC! They are the only members of an organization, and they are looking for more guidance, We are in talks about the next steps we need to take to make it happen!

The organization has 10 churches, and will double the size of the work in Fiji!

Thank God for the revival he has poured out on the South Pacific!!

Thank you all for your continued prayers, and support,

Ezekiel's Visa Was Approved, Silas is Here, and Revival Is Happening!

Thank you all for praying for Ezekiel's Visa!
We were able to get his visitors visa approved for the next 60 days while I work on an extension for another 30 to make it to conference!
As many have heard me say immigration is often times one of our biggest hurdles, and we are just thankful that we were able to get him approved to come back!
We made it through customs, and back home with no issues!
Sunday we had the opportunity to hear Joseph Amuk preach at Anglimp Outreach, and he done such a great job!
2 were convicted, and baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ! 
After service we headed over to Kagamuga Airport, and picked up Silas who will be with us over the next 2 months! 
We are excited to see what God has in store, and are happy to see him experience PNG!

I still have much to share about the revival here in the South Pacific but that will be on next week's update!

God Bless,
Bro Marshall
