Firstly we appreciate your prayers through this time of uncertainty, it's really making all the difference to have a group of dedicated people backing us up in prayer!
We praise God for having you and caring for us!

Please continue to pray especially for Adriana and the children. Aron has had some troubles with sleeping lately, but is doing better now!
Also Adriana went to the clinic as she didn't feel well, they did a CTG test of the heart , she was fine, but she has to learn to manage her (high) stress-levels better!
We learn a lot through this time and it' amazing to literally experience God's rest and peace even though there's so many things uncertain at the moment.
I'm working in the hanger to help out the engineers for 4 day per week, which goes allright. The fatique is not so extreme as in the beginning, but sometimes pops up still. The Chief engineer said  that it was a great contribution for me to be part of their team, which is of great encouragement!!

Progress here in regard to my aviation medical is slow.
I'm looking into the option to do all tests in New Zealand through the public system and my NZ aviation medical doctor in Nelson is investigating the proper way to go forward with this at the moment!
Also there's the Living wisdom course in Nelson NZ that runs one in the first half of October.

If we decide to go and do all the tests and course in NZ, MAF has said we have to pack house, thats MAFs policy.
Packing house means for us leaving Arnhemland. Because it wouldn't be good for our family to pack house, live for a while in NZ and then come back and live here again.

So I've picked up the option besides going to New Zealand to undergo immunology testing in Sydney, but that doesn't seem so easy either!
It has to be done over 3 different testing dates with several weeks in between for the doctors to wait results and deciding which follow-up tests need to be done.
This means 3 times travel up and down to Sydney, 3 times accommodation, plus testing costs which makes it an expensive and long exercise altogether.

We believe that God has a way.  We believe that God placed us here and that its not finished yet.God is teaching us to wait upon Him His timing is the best.He is teaching to trust only in Him and not to worry.  He is teaching us to rejoyce even in hard times. He is teaching us to stay strong in Him.

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
     whose trust is the Lord.
He is like a tree planted by water,
    that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
    for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
    for it does not cease to bear fruit.”
