Lunow Update November 2015

For God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for him and how you have shown

your love to him by caring for other believers as you still do. Our deep desire is that you will keep on

loving others as long as life lasts, in order to make certain that what you hope for will come true. Then you

will not be spiritually dull and indifferent. Instead, you will follow the example of those who are going to

inherit God’s promises because of their faith and endurance.” -Hebrews 6:10-12 (NLT)

GOD PROVIDED what we needed to bring Dad (82 years old) to and from and all around within West Papua

Indonesia among the Sougb people with whom he & mom ministered Christ for 40 years. GOD SUSTAINED

us to be able to visit and speak with thousands of Sougb believers, all ages, representing hundreds of churches,

amidst thousands of handshakes, hugs, gifts of hand-woven bags, beads, birds of paradise, and cash gifts

numbering in the thousands as well! “Thank you for bringing Jesus to us!” they said. “We are a changed

people and now we know where we are going!” By the end of this month-long trip, Dad said to us, “Now my

heart is at peace. I have seen with my own eyes that the people are following Jesus even to the 3rd & 4th

generations. God has done great things!” GOD BLESSED the Sougb Missionaries, as well, to finish securing

the land needed for livelihood projects & ministry, along with 4 new motorcycles–thanks to all of you who

gave for these projects!! Money for land purchase is now complete. The people have officially released Dad,

and he, them. It was the most difficult trip ever, including sickness & exhaustion for all three of us, and yet the

most amazing & rewarding! Thanks so much for your partnership in expanding the Body of Christ in Asia!

LOOKING AHEAD… December & January: Rest & family time. Febraury: To the Philippines for mutual

encouragement with the organic home fellowships we are a part of, both in Mindanao & Luzon. Please continue to pray

with us for our Filipino spiritual family, whom we spent 15 years with, as they continue to be the church in their

communities & beyond. March: Travel to Indonesia. Jon will return to West Papua to join Urias, one of the leading

Sougb missionaries, on a survey trip of the Bomerai Peninsula (south of Bintuni Bay) to assess the needs for new

outreaches. April: Begin visa application. Everything looks good for obtaining missionary visas in the new year but it’s

just a matter of timing. May: Leave missionary housing and secure a “Lunow Home Base” of our own in the Dallas

Fort Worth area as the Lord provides. August/September: Move to Manokwari in West Papua, Indonesia and secure a

house & truck & begin ministry. God keeps providing! Thanks for giving & praying in such helpful & faithful ways to

get the job done! The reward is eternal!!
