Hello! I know I don't usually do this, but this post is actually about something awesome some of my friends are doing, and which they would love your prayers for.
About two years ago, these friends moved to PNG. They are living at the Kompiam Hosptial in Enga Province, one of the less remote medical posts. From this post, they have the opportunity to observe first-hand the incredible work that is done by the Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF). When patients are too ill or wounded to make the gruelling trek from other parts of the province to Kompiam, MAF flies them out. In PNG, as well as in thousands of other locations around the world, MAF provides the only way to service the remote rural populations.
But MAF can't do their work alone. They need support. And so my friends have decided to do something to raise awareness for MAF. It's pretty simple:
They run a marathon, we pray a marathon.
Over the month of November, they are going to run up and down the Kompiam airstrip 26 times - that adds up to be one marathon. While they do that, they get everyone they can to pray. For them, but mostly for MAF. And tell everyone we can about what they're doing (that's where this blog post comes in). Will you join me in praying?
