Thanksgiving 2014

Dear Praying Friends,

Father has kept us in His care these days of furlough. We cannot brag on Him enough, and words cannot express all of the goodness of our great God. The Word of God is true, for it has been tested time and time again without fail. Upon this confidence we rely without shame, and are even the more bold.

This is just a special email edition update of what has been happening with our family the last month or so. Also, it is to send out a trial of our new letterhead for the newsletter. The design is from Pages (an Apple product), and a new challenge for me to lay out. But I am starting to learn what can be done with it, and the options we will have when we are back in the jungles of Papua New Guinea. We will be posting it on our webpage ( and our Facebook account. Of course it will be sent out via email and hard copies to our supporting churches.

We are thankful for those many of you who have prayed to Father for our safety and protection as we continue in this work God has given to us. Without a doubt your prayer has sustained us to go further in the work of the Lord. Please consider us in prayer continually, and this for the cause of Christ.

While Christi and I were in Alaska, our children had a good time spending time with my sister’s family. James and Christy (my sister) are “home missionaries” who minister to the military at the NAS base in Pensacola, Florida. The Dare family have continued many years in this work and have seen “ups-and downs”, but many young men and woman have received spiritual help from their labor of love. This Thanksgiving Day has brought us together with them again. We have had plenty of food and fellowship,
which we will reminisce of again in our days back in Papua New Guinea for sure…..

The background picture of this letter is from Hauabango, Gulf Province in PNG. It is my desire to start a church in this valley this upcoming term. After our family is settled back in Kaintiba, there are several men who are willing and ready to labor with me here — to win souls for Christ. One man, Silas, has family in this area. He has expressed this same desire, and we have committed this to God for wisdom. It will take 9 hours to walk to Hauabango from Kaintiba each way, so it will be a new challenge unlike before. More than likely it will start lowly: siting around the fire in a cook house of some “bushman”, breaking the Bread of Life as we eat kaukau and kumu.

It is Father Who sustains us in every adventure that we have set out to
accomplish for His Glory. He is worthy to have His Name go forth into all
the nations, far and near. It is our token of THANKFULNESS!

For His Glory,
Mark and Christi Helzerman
Tabitha, Titus, Samuel, Hadassah,
Grace, Hope, and Serenity
