Miniafia New Testaments from the dedication in 2010

"God is a Miniafia Man," the loincloth-clad speaker exulted! "Before He was English, and American, and Australian. But today He has become Miniafia!"

Where do you play when you live on an island?

Johanna and Luke are back!

“I thank my God every time I remember you.  In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Phil. 1:3-6 (NIV)

Thank you to all of you who prayed while Luke and I (Johanna) went to Sydney on Thursday. We had an uneventful trip and were able to go to the United States Consulate to apply for Luke’s passport on Friday morning. Then we flew back to Cairns on Friday evening and were happy to be reunited with Kurt and Kassia at that time!

Thanks again for your prayers and love.

In His hands,

Johanna (for Kurt, Kassia, and Luke Metzger)
