'A battle between our wants and God's timeline'

Waiting on God's timing.

Josh Butler says God began His work toward preparation for missionary service for himself and his wife, Faye, when they were just children growing up in a farm town in Washington.

“As kids we both learned to work very hard and were given the chance to learn the importance of trying to fix-it-yourself because we didn’t have the luxury of being in a big city that had people we could call.”

Fast forward a few years and today God has placed Josh and Faye and their children in Papua New Guinea. Josh says that their first year there was all about studying culture and language.
