classes in Phoenix since they have left PNG.
Continue to pray for the five Loko churches (Mang, Pinir, Awanglo,
Marawes and Koloko) and their leaders. Pray that they would stay true
to the Word and be a light to their own people and others. Marijuana

Upon returning to the field in mid August 2010, we will be returning to live among the Kaul people. Wayne
has asked the field leadership to be excused from his translation consulting responsibilities for a few years.
Pray that the Lord would provide other consultants to fill that need. We want to be able to focus on all that
is takes to establish the Kaul Church as a dynamic witness to their own people and others. He will especially

Pray for Diane as she continues to help newer tribal teams set up their literacy programs..
