Weekly Round Up: I’m Leaving on a Jet Plane Edition

Print Friendly


Today’s post is sort of random and contains a little bit of everything.  My life feels a little like that right now.  My family is packed up, and on Sunday, August 30th, we will be starting our journey back to Papua New Guinea.

Here’s what we have ahead of us:

3 1/2 hour flight from Houston to Los Angeles (LAX)

4 hour lay over in LAX

11 hour flight from LAX to Nadi, Fiji (NAN)

4 hour lay over in NAN

4 hour flight from NAN to Sydney, Australia

We will spend five nights in Wollongong, Australia visiting some friends who are doing a church plant there.  From SYD we will have an hour flight to Brisbane, a three hour flight to Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, and then a one hour flight to Alotau, Papua New Guinea – our home.

Hey, before you get too jealous I should mention that I travel with my wife, a four year old, two year old, and two month old PLUS all the luggage pictured above.  Please pray :).

Here is a selection of topic suggestions from last week’s survey on MH4C:

  • How to increase income
  • Improve relationships with money and people.
  • Teaching children about finance
  • I enjoy reading personal stories regarding your own finances and how you applied biblical teachings to your behavior.
  • Everyday living
  • I’m always interested to hear stories about how God has blessed
  • articles on tithing/giving
  • I would love to see stories about how people have been blessed by giving their finances to God.
  • Savers and spenders in marriage
  • Best places to save, more tips on cutting costs

If you have a topic suggestion please leave a comment, send an email to mhforc [at] gmail [dot] com, or Click Here to take survey.  I will leave the survey up for another week.

I was honored to be mentioned in the Level One article in the September 2009 Issue of the Sound Mind Investing Newsletter.  For those of you unfamiliar with SMI they are America’s best selling investment newsletter written from a Biblical perspective.  While most of their material is available only on a subscription basis they have just started a new blog for the general public.  You can learn more about SMI here or see their blog here.
