Fall Carnival

Every year around October our community here in Ukarumpa celebrates “carnival”.  It is kind of like a fall festival or state fair, except that there are no falling leaves or cool days.  It is simply our attempt to create some great fun with the resources we have!  It is also a fundraiser for local ministries.  Anna and Joshua loved carnival this year.  Here are some of their favorite moments.

Joshua enjoyed the pony ride.

Anna was a brave girl and went on the “Ferris Wheel” with Daddy.

Our cute little butterfly/poodle and our ferocious tiger!

Scenes from Malaysia

In October Danny attended the World Wide Scripture Engagement Consultation (WWSEC) in Melacca, Malaysia.  Over 250 participants from more than 100 organizations were there to discuss how to encourage deeper engagement with God’s Word.

One of the greatest benefits of the conference was discussing with colleagues about strategies and methods that are working well in their part of the world.  It will be exciting to share these ideas with co-workers back in Papua New Guinea and implement some of them here!

A “bonus” feature of the conference was the opportunity to see Becca’s brother, David Federwitz.  He is involved with Scripture Engagement in Ghana.  We took a rickshaw ride around the historical downtown of Melacca.

After the conference was over, David and Danny took a day to see the sights in Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia.

It was intriguing to see the contrast of soaring skyscrapers huddled right next to older buildings.

It was also interesting to see the contrast of road-side fruit stands.

And then a few blocks away there was a “mega digital mall”, with six stories of nothing but electronics gear.

These are the Petronas Towers at night.  They are currently considered the second highest buildings in the world.
