*Praise God for World Medical Mission and their excellent training and preparation for the medical mission field. We are so grateful for the opportunity to begin our missionary career with an organization that is committed to supporting us in any way possible. Thank God that we all (kids and Matt’s dad included) survived this lengthy and tiresome training period. Please pray for our fellow post-residents (and good friends) who will be heading into the field over the next six months.
*Please continue to pray for additional opportunities for partnerships to arise as we close in on our fundraising goals.
*Pray that we receive financial approval from our sending agency, as well as an official date for Matt’s boards exam in November, so that we can purchase our plane tickets for PNG! We are excited for this next step and look forward to having an official departure date. Pray that the necessary requirements will be met quickly and smoothly.
*Pray for our family as we move to Royersford, PA in August and travel to see the Woodleys in IL. Pray for God’s protection and peace.
*Pray for our friend and missionary in PNG, Dr. Erin, who was diagnosed with a pituitary macroadenoma (tumor in the brain). Please continue to pray for healing and peace for Dr. Erin.
*Pray for Matt in mid-September when he has the opportunity to speak at a national ER conference in Erie with emergency physicians, nurses, and paramedics.
*Pray that God will prepare our family to serve at Kudjip. Pray for the work He has planned for us and that He will prepare the way.
