Papua New Guinea

~Benji & Erica Jenkins - Thank you for praying for us during our return to Papua New Guinea (PNG) and our transition to life and ministry here!
-We praise God that the full PNG missionary team is back together in PNG! Jim and Becka Johnson returned to PNG yesterday, after a short trip to the U.S. to enroll their son, Joe, in college. We now have eight missionaries, one volunteer, and twelve missionary kids (MKs) on the field. We look forward to adding newly appointed Missionary Gene Mattox upon completion of his Homeland Ministry Assignment (HMA).
-Volunteer David Kunkle is off to a great start. He has been working with young people in several parts of PNG the last two weeks. David is the son of CCCU Missionaries John and Priscilla Kunkle who serve on the Texas-Mexico Border. Please continue to pray for David and his ministry here in PNG.
-Please pray for our upcoming Field Retreat on October 4th-7th and our Regional Conference from October 7th-13th. Both of these events will take place in the Philippines. Pray that our staff would be refreshed, equipped, and inspired to take the ministry in PNG to a new level during these important meetings.

Updates and Continued Prayer Requests:

-Please continue to pray for a full and speedy recovery for Teresa Leeth who is recovering from kidney and gallbladder surgery, and remember to continue your giving to their ministry. Although Teresa is taking a short medical leave, Greg continues ministering to our missionaries around the world.
-Pray for Greg Leeth as he prepares to minister to missionaries at the PNG Field Retreat and Regional Conference in the Philippines in October.
