Last year, Canadian missionaries Derek and Chantal Chen had to leave their ministry in a tribal location so that Chantal could receive cancer treatment in Taiwan. It’s been a long year for them, but they are praising the Lord in that they are back in Papua New Guinea and have spent their first week back in their village. They said, “Thank you for your prayers! We got settled into our house, cleaned and unpacked, and started homeschool again.”

Please continue to pray for Derek and Chantal, that they would be able to re-establish relationships with the Tanguat people and get into a good CLA (culture & language acquisition) routine. After only two months of language learning last year, then being gone for 10 months they said, “We feel like we need to start all over again! But many of the familiar words and sounds are quickly coming back to us. It’s definitely good to be back.”
