That’s what the p.s. at the bottom of a letter refers to…. if ever you wondered. We just posted our March newsletter on the cambellramblings newsletters page, but there was so much to share about our approaching furlough leave in Australia that we ran out of space for one other photo story, and there has been some additional info we would like to share.
Firstly, we mentioned a praise point that we found a tenant to rent our home, and here she is in the main photo above (that’s her on the left).
Talitha came to Ukarumpa in late December from Rockhampton, entering the quarantine process in the community for a reduced period of seven days (they were the good ‘ol days when PNG considered Queensland to be relatively safe). In preparation, Elspeth provided support in the form of getting her pantry stocked and fresh produce delivered, and essential services connected. Post quarantine, the relationship continued with Talitha becoming a regular guest for meals and joining us at Bible study. Please pray that she can enjoy the comforts of our little home, and that her role of teaching in the Primary School will be a blessing to her students and their families.
and finally (Part II)….
We also mentioned at the end of the newsletter the uncertainty surrounding international travel these days. As we finalised and posted online, developments in Queensland are casting a shadow over our plans. The PNG Government reports that 90 COVID cases were confirmed last Saturday, with 65 of these occuring in the capital, Port Moresby. Queensland Premier, Annastaica Palaszczuk, addressed the media yesterday regarding her concerns for the COVID situation in PNG, adding that she hopes to speak with the Prime Minister’s office to “have a look at the flights that are coming in”.
While this sounds ominous, we proclaimed God’s goodness in providing a flight for us on March 28. Until He sets a clear alternate path, we will be sticking with ‘Plan A’. In the meantime, please keep praying….
- that our scheduled flight will go ahead, and the required pre-flight COVID test can be obtained
- that we trust God and have a genuine peace knowing He is in control
- for the Australian and PNG governments as they continue to work together in addressing the current health crisis
