Update on Jon and Adie Leedahl, NTM Aviation in PNG

Tags: Aviation, Mission News, Prayer, Press Releases, Papua New Guinea
POSTED ON Oct 17, 2014

After Jon’s road accident on October 15th, and medical evacuation to Australia, we received word this morning that the surgeons had to remove Jon’s leg. Adie writes, "I've just been into see Jon. He's stable on his own support. He looks good, they are moving him to the surgical ward soon. (His leg is) gone. More surgery (will follow.) God has his leg. God has a purpose. My first thought of “why” was quickly answered with: I have a BIG plan. But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the LORD God my refuge, that I may tell of all YOUR works." Psalm 73:28 “I have given rest to the weary & joy to the sorrowing.” Jeremiah 31:25
