Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.  Eph. 3:20-21 (NKJV)

A time of preparation
Since reaching 100% of our ministry budget, we've been hard at work on preparing to move our family to Papua New Guinea (PNG) in July. It is an exciting, and also stressful, season in our life where God's teaching us more of what it means to follow Him. For us, this means we're selling and giving away lots of material possessions as we focus on moving to PNG. We're seeing prayers answered through God’s divine and creative ways for our stuff to be a blessing to others.

When we first get to PNG, our first 3 months will be a time of training. This will take place at either the Pacific Orientation Course (POC) location in the lowlands, or if sufficient staff is not available, an alternative orientation course will be held at Ukarumpa. Please pray for sufficient staffing for the original course. We’ll find out on May 25th where the course will be held, and then we will be able to buy our airline tickets.

Please pray for:
  • Sufficient staff for the Pacific Orientation Course.
  • God's peace and wisdom as we prepare to move to PNG.
  • Many buyers to come out to the garage sale.
  • Wisdom for our travel plans and for how, and what, to pack.

Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to your name goes all the glory for your unfailing love and faithfulness.”  -Psalm 115:1

Blessings,
Steve, Mindy, Karah, David, & Jonathan Clover

Two more languages receive God's Word!

The people of the Southeast Ambrym and Paama languages of Vanuatu now have the Bible available to them in both written and audio form! Praise God!

Leigh and Barbara Labrecque and their children (Leigh pictured) spent many years living in Vanuatu to work on translations with these two people groups. Now they get to see their dedication. Congrats!
