In Papua New Guinea, hundreds of Christians meet at even the tiniest church and many of the people walk for hours to even get to a service. The country itself lies south of the equator and just north of Australia. It's the last of a string of islands spilling down from Southeast Asia into the Pacific, and compromises the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and a collection of surrounding islands. Because of the numerous languages and dialects, some areas have never heard the Gospel.
The Christians of Papua New Guinea love to gather together for worship. Despite their language barriers and other challenges, they are gracious hosts to everyone. Their music plays a vital role in their services and their worship comes alive as they lift their hands and praise God. The missionaries we support work tirelessly to spread the message of Christ in Papua New Guinea, and we look forward to continuing to serve and support them!
