Our family in Papua New Guinea | 2012

Ukarumpa and Aiyura Valley

Ukarumpa is SIL's center of opperations in Papua New Guinea and where we live and work.

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!"

{Metzger Ministry Update} June 2014 | "One Month!"

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. – Proverbs 18:10 (NKJV)

Dear Friends and Family,

Thank you for so faithfully lifting us up in prayer to our Heavenly Father. Thanks also for your generosity and encouragement! The Lord has been faithful as always and we are now only lacking $38.00 of the monthly budget that we will need before we return to Papua New Guinea (PNG). Now we are less than a month away from leaving the United States and going back to PNG! Lord willing, our departure is set for July 7th.


We need to increase our support by:

     $38 per month


On June 6th, Kassia finished 3rd grade and Lukas finished Kindergarten. They are very excited about going back to their school in Ukarumpa! We appreciate your prayers in the next several weeks as we say goodbye to family and friends.
