September 2015

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.”

-King Solomon, Ecclesiastes 3:1, NIV

 

TIME in the USA…Lunow 092015 2 (May 2014 – May 2016)

TRAVEL TIME has produced new support and stronger partnerships in God’s work. Thanks to all who have received us and listened to our messages and have provided for our needs and those of the Sougb missionaries (ministry, land, motorcycles, etc)

REST TIME has been happening in between travels, bringing refreshment and renewal for our return to Indonesia, Lord willing, by May 2016

FAMILY TIME has proved to be very meaningful & profitable through on-site interaction with our children during this season of transitions & career choices being worked out. Time with Eva has been especially delightful! NOTE current addresses: Jon, Sherri, Ethan & Adam living at 107 N President St Wheaton IL 60187. Tyler, Ellie, & Eva Neethling remaining at 720 Helene St Shorewood IL 60404

TIME in INDONLunow 092015 1ESIA… (October 15th through November 13th)

SOUGB TIME will involve Jon, Sherri, and Dan Lunow (Jon’s dad) traveling to and from and within Indonesia this October-November to bring support and encouragement to the Sougb churches and missionary outreaches in Papua.

PRAYER TIME is greatly needed regarding God’s protection around our safety & health, as well as clear minds & fluent tongues for the 3 of us in communicating with both the Indonesian & Sougb languages—especially for Dad as he preaches & teaches in Sougb, and for closure in his heart as he says his goodbyes with those he has loved & worked with in Christ for more than 35 years.

TIME in PERSPECTIVE…

In a collection of essays called Weight of Glory, C.S. Lewis quotes Thomas More… “Many will be rejected at the last day, not because they have taken time and pains about their salvation, but because they have not taken time and pains enough…If you have not chosen the Kingdom of God, it will make, in the end, no difference, what you have chosen instead.”

June 2015

“Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation… Everything was created through him and for him…. Christ is also the head of the church which is his body…. He is first in everything…. And through Him, God reconciled everything to Himself…. So we tell others about Christ, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all the wisdom God has given us…”

                                                            -Colossians 1:15,16,18,20,28 (NLT)

PERSPECTIVE:

“After visiting with some Sougb people selling their vegetables at the marketplace in Manokwari this past May, Yusup, the other Sougb missionary I was with, seemed very saddened by the fact that those Sougb people had forgotten who I was. He turned to me and said, ‘Don’t worry Jonny, many people don’t remember who Jesus is either!’”
