Macayo's Fundraiser - Sept 8

Mark your calendars! On Sunday, September 8th, Macayo's is hosting an all afternoon fundraising event (lunch and dinner). If you print the attached flyer and present it with your bill, 20% of your food bill (minus drinks) will be donated by Macayo's to help cover ministry costs for us as we live and serve full-time here in Mibu, Papua New Guinea.

Please note that if you want to participate YOU NEED TO PRINT OUT THE ATTACHED FLYER and give it to your waiter or waitress.

Also note that this is only good at the Macayo's at 1920 S. Dobson.

If you have other friends and/or family who you think might enjoy having a restaurant meal with a purpose, feel free to invite them too! The more the merrier! Be sure to print out duplicates of this flyer to give them.

Hope you can make it!

The Passing of Something Good

For years now, the Fry's gift card program has provided a huge blessing to the Mibu Ministry. It has been generating around $150 a month to help with the expenses of living and serving here in Mibu. We really appreciate that so many have wanted to help us through this program.

Unfortunately, the workings of the Fry's gift card program have changed in such a way that it is no longer possible to benefit the Mibu Ministry. Please know that as of this month, using your Fry's cards no longer benefits the Mibu Ministry.

Thank you so much to all who have been so desirous and faithful to help support us in this way! We rest assured that despite a continually changing financial situation God does indeed take care of ALL our needs each and every day, month, and year.

As a side note, you'll have to forgive our future updates for a while. You may have noticed in the right column of our updates that we keep a reminder there about the use of your Fry's cards. We are unable to remove that reminder until we are out in town with access to the internet, hopefully toward the end of September. Please don't be confused by the fact that it's still there!

Blessings from Mibu!

The Mibu Service Crew

We want you to meet this most wonderful Service Crew...

These ladies, for the last several months have been serving others in the church, specifically those who give their time and efforts to teaching and other jobs that take a lot of their time. We've noticed over the years that those who give much of their time to the church often cannot give as much time as they need to their homes and gardens and livestock.

These sweet ladies have decided to spend every Thursday rotating through different teachers' and church workers' gardens, helping to weed, plant, clear bush and other tasks pertaining to general upkeep! In a mostly subsistence economy this is a huge blessing to others in the church. Thanking God for those taking initiative based on a growing sense of what it means to be part of Christ's body in Mibu.

Their names from left to right are as follows; Biop, Noonoye with son Roman, Gosen with Wunjo's daughter and Skyler's friend Nines, Wunjo with Noonoye's son Josai, Nancy with daughter Jemima, Eni, and then her mother Eson.
