SVCC Team Arrives in Mibu!

Yesterday (friday) was a very exciting day for us. A team from Sun Valley was able to make it into Mibu after their long travels from the US. But their arrival didn't come without the unexpected. They were, after all, traveling to Papua New Guinea where anything can happen... and often does!

Actually as it turns out, one of the team, Dennis McMains got stuck in the capital city, Port Moresby, due to overbooking on Air Niugini. It was looking like Dennis wasn't going to be able to make it into Mibu, about which we were all soooo disappointed. However, after arriving the next day in Goroka, our helicopter pilot, Ray, very graciously offered to fly him in this morning (Saturday)! We await his arrival as I write this!

Meanwhile, yesterday the team hit the ground running in Mibu. Kevin, Joey and Geoff hiked down to Mibu to shoot a pig and bring back the meat, which was quickly converted to 'pork' burgers and then to life sustaining energy for the team. The ladies had a great afternoon of 'girl' time up at our house, catching up with Shannon, asking questions, praising God as they received news of Dennis' safe arrival and the plans to bring him into Mibu.

We're super joyful that the team is here and that the team is soon to be complete! We're so thankful that with the slight mess with the airlines in Port Moresby that God has seen fit to work out a way for the whole team to be in Mibu with us. And we're looking forward to sharing the vision of Mibu Ministry, fellowshipping together, and giving the team a chance to fellowship with the church here in Mibu!

Thank you for your continued prayers!
