Papua New Guinea: Please pray for missionaries Jeff and Susan Myers who are scheduled to fly to the U.S.A. for home assignment on June 15. There has been unrest in Papua New Guinea where the Myers serve and this has caused many offices to close, including the office that is processing the documents they need to travel. It is scheduled to be closed until June. 14.

Jeff Myers sent in the following update this morning!

“I am back from immigrations now and sitting at the missionary guest house where I am staying while in Port Moresby (POM).   God is good and with the help of our liaison and an old friend we met while waiting at the immigration office, God worked and I now have our passports in my possession!  We are good do go!   We are very grateful to all who have been praying for the success of getting our completed passports and visas before we were scheduled to leave tomorrow.   I thank the Lord for leading the way in getting them.   I thought about the song, “The Lord knows the way through the wilderness, all we have to do is follow.”

Thank you all for your prayers!  To God Be The Glory!!!!
