Mumu

Today we butchered a pig and prepared a tribal feast – a mumu. A mumu is a specific type of meal from Papua New Guinea where food is cooked on hot stones in a hole in the ground. We put the pig meat, potatoes and sweet potatoes in two layers on top of the hot stones and covered the whole thing up. In Papua New Guinea they use banana leaves instead of aluminum foil 🙂

See for yourself how we prepared the mumu:

After 2-3 hours the food was ready to eat and we had to get it out of the ground. Wow that was delicious! One of the best barbecues ever!

See how the mumu looks when it is ready to eat:

Visiting the Tribal Village

Today we drove to Pennsylvania to have a one week seminar at the New Tribes Mission Wayumi campus. Wayumi is a place to experience tribal missions. We will have seminars like evangelism, culture and language learning and so on and will put the things we’ve learned in the classroom to the test in the tribal village on campus. Please pray with us for a great time of learning and for wisdom in how to include Ben Elliot in all of this.

Update on Ben Elliot

Ben Elliot has been much better since yesterday night. Today he was just as normal as he ever was, he nursed well and acted normally. Praise the Lord for that! So far no other testings have been scheduled and might not be needed. Thank you so much for your prayers! The only thing left right now is that he has diarrhea, please pray that we can keep him well hydrated. Praise the Lord that Ben Elliot’s main symptoms have ceased!

Testresults Ben Elliot

We got a call from the doctor today with the results of the x-ray examination. The results were good and did not show any problem. But because his condition is a little bit worse then when we went to see the doctor on Monday he will send him for more test to the Univeristy of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Please pray that they will find out soon what his problem is and how they can help him. Please pray for Frieddy and Johanna for strength and endurance. It is so good that we know that God is trustworthy! We are so thankful for all your prayers and for the support we get here through friends at the school.

Reflux??

We had to leave the camp early on Monday because Ben Elliot seems to have a reflux problem. He does not eat well and cries a lot after feedings. After coming home from camp we had a doctors appointment and an x-ray examination today. We will get the results in two days. If it is reflux he will outgrow it in a couple month and probably get medication in the meantime. We hope that the doctors will be able to help him soon. Please pray that he will get better soon and for us not to be too tired and to be able to help and comfort him. Thankfully he has not lost any weight yet. We are glad that we can trust God with this whole situation and find rest in knowing that He is in control.

A New Semester

First walk in the park with Ben Elliot!

Summer break is almost over! This summer has been quite busy for us and we are especially thankful for the save arrival of our son! We are so thankful that everything went well! We are also thankful for the opportunity to work here at NTBI!

The biggest thing this summer was of course the birth of Ben Elliot! We can not stop looking at him because he is so cute! It is challenging to adjust to life with a baby, but is is also one of the greatest things in life! It is great to face this challenge together with God and to trust Him that he will grow and stretch us through that!

Student Leadership Training 2011

This Thursday life starts getting busy again with the start of leadership training. We have a 10 day training starting this Thursday and ending at student registration. We will go up to north to a camp during 5 days. We’re looking forward to start the Semester again and dig into God’s Word together! Please pray that we will have a great time together and for wisdom and strength to go to camp with Ben Elliot.
