Back Home in Madang

It has been a month since I have posted anything.  I got back to Madang and hit the ground running.  Our Director had to leave before I got back to Madang, so I went back to work immediately.  We have several people from the United States of America with us right now and many of our Papuan New Guinea co-workers have been in Madang also. They have been working on checking Scripture portions.  Three different language groups have been in Madang having their translations checked by their consultants.  This has added to our normal work load, but the checking has gone very well, so it has been worth the extra work.

Jan and I had a good visit with my sisters and their families in Springfield.  We left there and went to Sedona Arizona to spend a week with my childhood friend, Grace.  Our time there was wonderful.  Grace and I have been close friends since my brother Tommy introduced us to each other at the age of four.

We took a day trip to the Grand Canyon.  It is only a few hours drive from Grace’s home in Sedona,  Arizona.  As we traveled we had a conversation about how the word awesome was overused to the point that it has lost some of its meaning.  When I got into the car after my first sight of the Grand Canyon I said to Jan and Grace.  “I am sorry but I have to say that was Awesome”.  They both agreed that was the correct use of the word. I have put a few of my pictures of the Grand Canyon below.  Pictures are not a good way to see the Grand Canyon.  You really must see it for yourself.

Grace retired this year from teaching.  She decided to teach two or three days a week to make the transition from full time work to retirement easier.  Grace came to visit us in Madang five years ago when I had my 60th birthday.

Every day when Grace leaves home she sees Bell Rock.  Sedona is quite an amazing place because of the red rocks.

I hope to get back to at least four posts a month now.
