We have just completed one of the best weeks of ministry in our history. Papua New Guinea was ripe for all things “Jesus”.  Conservative estimates are that over 1 million people attended the festival meetings in the 2 cities of Mt. Hagen & Port Moresby. Our medical teams treated over 4,500 people. In addition, every prison in the country was visited, 3 churches were built, 3 fresh water wells were dug, 2 million pieces of literature were distributed, 2 medical wings built, and almost 10,000 leaders trained. Thanks to Hillsong, Go Global, MAF, JMM staff, and all the many churches and volunteers! All Glory to Jesus!!!

The people of Papua New Guinea speak over 800 separate languages. This past week we were able to visit many of the areas where these people live. From North to South and East to West, we sent teams all over this country to minister. Above is a picture of Joyce taken when we visited a very remote village where neither electricity nor currency are used. They gave us a very warm welcome and we gave them Jesus!

As I entered into worship being led by my good friend Darlene Zschech, I said to God, "I do not think I could love you more than I do right now!" We are so honored to get to be here ministering to these sweet people. Tonight we saw over 100,000 come to the grounds and it is only the first night. God is on the move here in Papua New Guinea!

Over the past few days we have had such an incredible time of ministry here in Papua New Guinea. The people here are so warm and welcoming. We have visited our medical clinics, dedicated a church and fresh water well, ministered in the prisons, preached to over fifty thousand in the city of Mt. Hagen and we are only halfway finished. I continue to be amazed at all God allows us to do and be a part of. Thank you so much to all our friends and partners who are bringing the help and the good news to this nation.

People have been traveling from all over the region, walking for days to get to the clinic and are so happy that the medical team has come. The team has seen quite a few very sick patients who had to be admitted to the hospital. They treated over 300 patients, and more than 400 teeth were extracted. Tonight they had an hour and a half church meeting with the villagers and 300 souls were saved. It was a really great time with the people of Ambunti, Papua New Guinea!

After many months of preparation our Festival of Life activities are underway in Papua New Guinea. We are thrilled and honored to be here and the wonderful people of PNG are truly enthusiastic and grateful. I met a woman this morning who told me with tears in her eyes how much it means to her that after years of watching her on TV, Joyce would fly half way around the world to be here. She said, “This shows me that the love of God she talks about is genuine.”

On day one Joyce dedicated a new clinic wing for pre-natal and well-baby care. And today we head out to another new clinic, church, and fresh water well. And that’s only the beginningcan’t wait to see what God does here.

Today was a unique day in my foreign travels. As you can see from the picture, we got a little stuck in the mud. This was only after our first car broke down an hour outside of the city. In spite of all this adventure, the ministry still went on as planned. Today we dedicated a new church and fresh water well in the city of Kwakila. Great things are ahead of us here in Papua New Guinea.

Yesterday I went with one of our medical teams to visit the locations where they will do medical clinics this week. One of the locations is about an hour and a half from the city. While we were there three patients with injuries were brought in. One was a man who had been attacked by a wild boar and was severely injured. Our medical workers were able to help stabilize him so that he could be transported to a hospital in the city. The truck in this picture is the "ambulance" which carried him the 1 1/2 hours to the hospital. Without the assistance of our medical workers this man may not have survived. This event showed me once again how needed these medical outreaches are in areas where adequate medical care is not available.  Because of your partnership we were able to be there at the right moment to help this man. Our God is surely a God who saves.

This is a picture of a DVD duplicator that we furnished for a ministry in China a few years back. It has been used to duplicate thousands of Joyce’s DVDs in Mandarin. They are then distributed all over China. We get great testimonies all the time from this. Thanks to our friends and partners who are helping the church of China.
